Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet Superlatives

Best Actress and Best Series are important, but who won Best Dye Job and Most Prominent Leg?

Best Use of Yellow: Jenna Dewan-Tatum
It's a tough color to pull off, but Ms. Dewan-Tatum looks amazing in Carolina Herrera. And she's married to Channing. Not fair. (Photo via Getty)
Best "Hey, I'm a Fun Gal Who's Nothing Like My Serious TV Character!" Dress: Claire Danes
Ms. Danes was nominated for best TV actress in "Homeland." Her Valentino gown is fun, but looks more like a maxidress you'd wear on vaca. It could use some tailoring around the ribcage, and the sheer panel has got to go. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Best Wavy Blowout: Gina Rodriguez
This is the exact consistency and texture that wavy blowouts need to be in January 2015. Brava to Ms. Rodriguez and her Badgley Mischka gown. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Best "Babysitter's Night Out" Hairdo: Katherine Heigl
Perhaps in an effort to remind us of the days when she was sort-of-almost America's Sweetheart, before everyone started to hate her, Katherine Heigl stuck her head in a time machine and set it for 2004. The sausage curls rendered her almost unrecognizable. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Best "I've Never Had to Do TV" Dress: Diane Kruger
Just in case anyone forgot, Ms. Kruger reminds us through pin curls and a shimmery Emilia Wickstead gown that she is exclusively a star of the silver screen. (Photo via Getty)
Best Mock Turtleneck: Felicity Jones
Believe it or not, this Dior gown is not the only mock turtleneck of the night. (Photo via Getty)
Best Vanna White Reference: Heidi Klum
The "Project Runway" host looked every bit the TV presenter in her red Atelier Versace gown. (Photo via Getty)
Best Former "Clueless" Star: Paul Rudd
Mr. Rudd cleans up nice, although all the suits in the world can't make him seem older than 28ish. (Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage)
Most Deserved Ultra-Glam Moment: Reese Witherspoon
She had to shoot in the same hiking clothes for months to make "Wild." She deserves this Calvin Klein disco ball dress. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Most Tasteful Cutout: Emily Blunt
No, apparently we still aren't collectively over cutouts. But at least the triangle of exposed midriff on this Michael Kors number isn't full Kardashian. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Most Physics-Defying Bodice: Kate Hudson
... And sadly, the same can't be said for Kate Hudson's daring Atelier Versace creation. Maybe this is meant to be a visual message of support for Atlantic City's ebbing casino industry? (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best Marlene Dietrich Reference on a Literal Teenager: Lorde
The singer looks more sophisticated than people two, three and four times her age in a Narciso Rodriguez pantsuit. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best Pants-Train: Emma Stone
In her Lanvin ensemble, Ms. Stone happens to make anyone who showed up in a gown look fussy and outdated. She doesn't do it on purpose, though, she's way too nice for that. (Photo via Getty)
Baggiest Gloves: Amal Clooney
At her first televised Hollywood event, it appeared Ms. Clooney was struggling to grin and bear it. Cheer up, Amal, you're married to a winner of the Cecil DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award and you're in Dior Haute Couture! (Photo via Getty)
Prominent Leg Award: Cindy Crawford
First Angelina Jolie sparked the "deep" celebrity tattoo trend, then she dropped that leg-bomb on us a couple of years ago. Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end for outrageous leg slits. They are boring and, contrary to most stars' belief, not at all flattering. (Photo via Getty)
Best Paparazzi Bait: Jennifer Aniston
Speaking of which, there won't be a tabloid on the planet without a "Who Wore It Better?" side-by-side of Angie and Jen in her peep-leg Saint Laurent this week. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Best Pointless Belt: Salma Hayek
She could have just not worn the belt, but she wore the belt anyway. (The dress is Alexander McQueen.) (Photo via Getty)
Best Pose: Helen Mirren
How is it possible that Ms. Mirren has been to way more of these than pretty much anyone else, but she still has the most fun? Maybe the key to career longevity is just to have a great time. That and Dolce & Gabbana. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best Versace: Jessica Chastain
A plunging neckline is classed up with a subdued color, and the train makes the whole thing positively regal. This is how you wear Atelier Versace. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best Man Outfit: Alan Cumming
Men's award-show attire can be boring. Thank you for turning up in a flesh-toned suit, Alan Cumming. (Photo via Getty)
Best Emoji Reference: Catherine Zeta-Jones
Thank you, Twitter, for bringing this to our attention. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Best "Hey, Remember Me? I'm Still Hot" Dress: Felicity Huffman
The former "Desperate Housewife" looks polished and svelte in Lorena Sarbu, making the case for the red carpet shift dress. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Best Way to Show You DGAF: Keira Knightley
This Chanel dress is puzzling, but Keira Knightley doesn't care what anyone thinks, which makes it cool. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best "Hillary 2016" Subliminal Message: Amy Poehler
The comic who is famous for her Hillary Clinton impression wore a Stella McCartney dress in Democratic Blue, with the kind of neckline Ms. Clinton would approve. We're on to you, Ms. Poehler. Also, the small train is great. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Well, It's Definitely Tea Length Award: Tina Fey
The cut on this Antonio Berardi is questionable to say the least, but whatever, Tina Fey does what she wants. (Photo via Getty)
Best Black: Patricia Arquette
Black was not big for women on the Globes carpet this year, which is a shame, because it is one of the best colors around. Imagine how much more elegant this dress would have been without the giant built-in shoulder corsage, though. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Best Besties: Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda
Jane Fonda's amazing body makes it look like "Barbarella" just wrapped yesterday instead of 47 years ago. Her dress is Versace. Carry on, ladies. (Photo via Getty)
Best Dye Job: Kristen Wiig
I can't bring myself to talk smack about Kristen Wiig, so let's focus on her adorable blonde bob. Love it! (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Best "Actually I Was In a Movie Last Year": Katie Holmes
Ms. Holmes looking her pre-Cruise self in royal purple Marchesa. Which brings us to another point: this red carpet does not have enough purple or Marchesa. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Most On-Brand: Kate Beckinsale
Yes, this Elie Saab dress is definitely something Kate Beckinsale would wear. Ten points to her stylist. (Photo via Getty)
Best From the Waist Up: Kerry Washington
So many tea length gowns. This trend needs to die. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Most Intense Sexyface: Jennifer Lopez
Chill out, J. Lo! Chill! Out! in your Zuhair Murad dress. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best Sartorial Reminder of an Actress's Quirky Side: Ruth Wilson
Is Ruth Wilson an ~outside the box thinker~ in the vein of Lena Dunham? Look at that Prada dress, of course she is. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Best Jellyfish Costume Made By Your One Friend Who's Really Good at Halloween: Lupita Nyong'o
This Giambatista Valli concoction is perfectly charming on Lupita Nyong'o, because she is Lupita Nyong'o. Don't try it at home; it could veer too loofah-meets-shower-curtain. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Cutest Couple: Anna Faris and Chris Pratt
Yes, Amal and George are elegant, but let's face it, their red carpet chemistry is relatively zilch. Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, on the other hand, are the couple everyone wants to be friends with. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best Blush Pink: Maggie Gyllenhaal
It must be tough to decide what color to wear to an event when there's a red carpet; you never know if everyone will be in the same hue or not. Ms. Gyllenhaal lucked out, opting for a lovely shade of pink at an event where almost no one wore that color. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best '60s Reference: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
JLD is perfect in every way, especially when rocking a teased crown and an Elizabeth Taylor-esque Narciso Rodriguez gown. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
The What's She Doing Here? Prize: Lana Del Rey
Unfortunately, for every good '60s outfit, there is an equal and opposite bad one. It's simply a rule of the universe. With that in mind, here is a photograph of Lana Del Rey in Versace. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best Use of Feathers: Julianne Moore
Although her hair looks like she gave up on an updo halfway through, the Givenchy Couture dress is remarkable. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Best Doily With Sleeves: Chrissy Teigen
The trompe l'oeil loincloth portion of this Zuhair Murad dress is a little awkward, but Ms. Teigen gets points for wearing a look no one else attempted. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best Snake Necklace: Naomi Watts
This look is great because at first glance, you wonder, "Oops, which pretty blonde actress is that again?" and then you look closer and realize it's Naomi Watts and she's wearing a Bulgari diamond-encrusted reptile around her neck. Her dress is Gucci. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best Subtle "I'm the Next Meryl" Hint: Amy Adams
Ms. Adams looked like a pro among pros at this Golden Globes. She is truly a natural in powder blue Versace. This might just be the year she clinches the Oscar. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best Halter Top: Uzo Abuda
Who knew a beaded halter top gown could look this fresh and interesting in 2015? (Photo via Getty)
Best Suit for Self-Absorbed Grooms: Jared Leto
What's the deal with grooms who wear white, anyway? Here is Jared Leto. (Photo via Getty)
Best Hair-Neckline Combo: Christine Baranski
This is a stunning look from head to toe, but Ms. Baranski particularly nails it when it comes to keeping her hair and Zac Posen dress from duelling for attention. (Photo via Getty)
Best Faked-Out Midriff: Kate Mara
Is that a sliver of tummy? No, it's a belt! Fooled ya. Cool. The dress is Miu Miu. (Photo via Getty)
Most Fun-Lovin' Gal: Zosia Mamet
It seems like Zosia Mamet picked up this fizzy pink Andrew Gn ball gown and said, "You know what? Why not." And that's great. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Dress That Makes You Want to Yell At the TV, "OKAY, WE GET IT!": Allison Williams
Allison Williams is a prim beauty with timeless and elegant personal style. We get it. So for the next awards show, can she just please wear something wrong? It will only make people like her more. This Armani Prive gown is spectacular, though. (Photo by MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)
Best Leftover Costume From the Set of 1984's "Dune": Jemima Kirke
In all seriousness, has Ms. Kirke ever looked better? I don't know if it's the smokey eye or the regal vibe on this Rosie Assoulin two-piece, but this look WORKS. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Most Improved: Lena Dunham
Ms. Dunham wears a dress by childhood friend Zac Posen, who is always looking out for her best interests. This is probably the only acceptable mullet hem in red carpet history. (Photo via Getty)
Best Razor-Sharp Bob: Rosamund Pike
There is nothing nice to say about this Vera Wang dress (which would have been nice if it fit Ms. Pike), so let's give out another hair award and never speak of this horrible misstep again. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Best Embellishment: Viola Davis
It's fun to throw some sparkles on, especially at an event where everyone is way too serious. Like, come on guys, it's not the Oscars. Thankfully, Ms. Davis looks like she's having fun in Donna Karan Atelier. (Photo via Getty)
Most Creative Cry for Help: Melissa McCarthy
Ms. McCarthy sewed two bad garments together to create the mother of all horrible dresses. Somebody, find this woman a stylist. It doesn't have to be this way. (Photo via Getty)
Best Incorporation of Sheer: Allison Tollman
This gown its Ms. Tollman like a glove, and the focus is on her instead of her clothes. A perfect 10. (Photo via Getty)
Best Bold Lip: Ellie Kemper
There were not many bold lips at the Globes this year. Thankfully, Ms. Kemper made up for all the boring lip gloss. Her gown is Naeem Khan. (Photo via Getty)
Most Severe Hairstyle: Anna Kendrick
This style is reminiscent of a highly important JV softball game. Girl, we can smell the Garnier Fructis hairspray from here. Nice Monique Lhullier dress, though. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
Most Inventive Take on the Juicy Couture Smocked Bathing Suit Coverup: Dakota Johnson
Remember in like 2006, when you'd wear a Juicy tracksuit all winter, and a smocked terry cloth Juicy dress all summer? Well, Dakota Johnson found one made out of metal by Chanel Couture. Cool. (Photo via Getty)
Awkward Reunion Award: The Cast of "Entourage"
And now, from the movie we're all pretending not to be excited for, here is the cast of "Entourage." They look good. (Photo via Getty)

Sports fans have the Super Bowl, March Madness and the World Series. Fashion fans have the Golden Globes, the Grammys and the Oscars.

Yes, red carpet season is officially in full swing. Now is the time to obsess over the clothing choices of the entertainers we love, hate and feel “meh” about.

Last night, the Golden Globes kicked things off. People tend to be a bit more relaxed at the Golden Globes, because they plan to pull out the big guns at the Oscars. There is still some measure of decorum, though, especially when compared to the shitshow that is the Grammy red carpet. The Globes, after all, are a prime stop on the Oscar campaign trail, so stars who want to earn themselves a statuette do their best to look like A-listers at this event.

We have assembled a list of red carpet superlatives for the dozens of celebs who marched down the carpet tonight. Click through our slideshow to learn who was the cutest couple, who’s still rocking cutouts, and who’s crying for help.
