The Golden Globes were back this year in a big way, and some of our favorite young stars joined their elder celebrity statesmen and -women for the festivities. From the Jonas Brothers to the "High School Musical" cast, the pop stars, small-screen beauties and blockbuster sweethearts were out in full force. So how did these fresh faces fare on the red carpet? Here is our opinion. (Click on the names for photos to refresh your memory.)
Blake Lively: Thumbs down. The "Gossip Girl" star is usually a hit on the red carpet, but this one was certainly a miss. The dress itself is beautiful, but it didn't seem to fit her and the color of the dress did not match her skin tone. Also, she could have done something with her hair. It seems this is the only style she is comfortable going for. Next time, take a risk, Blake!
The Jonas Brothers: Nick Jonas: Thumbs down. Velvet jacket, no tie — you should know better. It's the Golden Globes! Kevin Jonas: Thumbs up. Never can go wrong with a classic tux. Joe Jonas: Thumbs up. The red shirt underneath his suit was a good choice. Read More...
You know how they say revenge is a dish best served ... in front of millions of people and your Hollywood peers?
OK, maybe that's not how that one goes, but Tina Fey proved one thing at Sunday night's Golden Globes: Liz Lemon's alter ego may be a world-famous actress/ writer/ producer/ Sarah Palin doppelgänger who makes the cover of Vanity Fair and seems to be living the dream, but she still obsesses over what anonymous hacks post about her online as much as she did about the mean girls in high school.
Fey blasted some hilarious buckshot at some of her more vocal detractors during an acceptance speech Sunday night for Best Actress in a TV Series - Comedy for her work on "30 Rock," instantly topping the night's sound-bite library by telling previously anonymous dissers BabsonLacrosse, DianeFan and Cougar Letter to "suck it!"

You know how everyone always talks about how insane and mind-bogglingly surreal awards-show red carpets are? As the long-time king of camp cynicism, I was ready to chalk all that up as just more Ryan Seacrest hyperbole (not everything can be that amazing, can it?).
I stand corrected. Last night was my first tangle with the Golden Globes carpet. (Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry: "Aw, you're a virgin!") And dare I say it? It was a draw. Here, now, are some of the shenanigans that transpired. Relive it with me, why don't you?
» In my seven-second interview with Mickey Rourke, I got him to talk "Iron Man 2" for the first time. Sort of. That was only to be outdone by my "interview" with Angelina Jolie. Total words uttered by Angie? One. That's all you need when you're one half of Brangelina. Read More...

Bruce Springsteen may have gotten some major love at the Golden Globes last night, but he wasn't the only musician who helped make "The Wrestler" such an amazing movie. As Mickey Rourke reminded everyone during his acceptance speech for Best Actor, fellow bad boy Axl Rose provided "Sweet Child O' Mine" at a severely discounted price.
Rourke "Wrestler" director Darren Aronofsky recently stopped by the MTV News offices to talk about the movie, and told us a bit about how they managed to get the GNR song. ...
Of course, this isn't the first time Rourke has given Axl and GNR their due props: There is a shout-out in "The Wrestler" itself when Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Rourke) and his stripper friend Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) are hanging out at a bar listening to '80s metal:
Randy : They don't make 'em like they used to.
Cassidy: F---in' '80s, man, best sh-- ever !
Randy: Bet yer a--, man, Guns N' Roses rules!

FROM THE MTV MOVIES BLOG: Tomorrow, the hotly anticipated Golden Globe nominations will be announced, and with that comes the same question that is asked every single year: Who the hell is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that decides who wins and who loses at the Golden Globes?
One of the big differences that separate the Golden Globes from the Oscars is the simple fact that the nominees and the winners are not decided by fellow actors and directors, but instead by a group that calls itself the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
