Does it every cross your mind what persuaded someone to pick a certain outfit to wear on the red carpet? Over the years I’ve grown to love fashion, and if I had the money to dress better I would, but alas I do not. Although, it’s free to judge our many famous celebrities on what they choose to wear. Sunday at the Golden Globes, the stars sported many different trends. Take a look at my list of the Best Dressed women at the Golden Globes.

Before we get too deep into 2013, I wanted to provide a preview on the year to come. As it is the case at the beginning of every new year, there are many, many reasons to be optimistic. Obviously, not every film will live up to expectations (think: Nine, J. Edgar, etc.) and I’m sure a few of these films will get pushed to 2014, but it is still fun to get our hopes up now, while everything is set in front of us. I had planned to run down as many films as I could find, but it became a bit of an overwhelming task, so instead I have compiled a list of the 25 films I am most excited for this year. While we are all knee deep in the end of year awards season for 2012, let’s have some fun looking ahead at the year to come.

Whoever plotted out the scheduling of awards was quite the smart cookie! Pacing everything so close together so as to bring up the expectations and anticipation of who will receive the Oscars, the Critics’ Choice Awards and Golden Globes really ramp up the hype, either pushing one in front of the others or evening out the playing field. However, this week’s box office was quite the competition. Internationally, ‘The Hobbit‘ (WB) still leads on the frontlines. Surprise, surprise, but not really, ‘Django Unchained’ (Wein.) is #1, followed by ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D‘ (LGF). ‘The Hobbit’ (WB) falls to #3, ‘Les Miserables (2012)‘ (Uni.) down to #4, but ‘Jack Reacher‘ (Par.) holds onto #5. The family-fun ‘Parental Guidance‘ (Fox) is in at #6, ‘This is 40‘ (Uni.) hangs onto #7, ‘Lincoln‘ (BV) #8, and ‘The Guilt Trip‘ (Par.) drives into #9. Rounding out the top 10 is ‘Promised Land (2012)‘ (Focus), which jumps up 19 to make it into the top 10.
