The Grammys are the music industry's most important night of the year - and with performances from some of the biggest stars in the world and appearances from from leaders in pop, rock, R&B, hip hop, country, and more, the Grammy red carpet always has a unique edge.
After all, it takes some creativity and and a certain type of fierceness to rock the sort of look that's requirement to make a memorable statement on the red carpet. So without further adieu, here are our favorite looks from the Grammy Awards in 2017...
Mya and Lea Michele both went for midriff baring looks, albeit in very different ways.
Adele is wearing a softer version of the Pantone color of the year, and she's doing it very well. Paris Jackson also picked up on the mossy green vibes.
Skylar Gray had her own "Women's March" moment on the red carpet in a suffragette inspired all-white shirtdress, and Halsey looked bold and kind of bada** in a bright royal blue pantsuit sans shirt.
Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill showed that great minds think alike in red with long sleeves and sexy cutouts.
Heidi Klum and Katy Perry both did high drama in high necks and metallics. We particularly love Katy Perry's blush-colored feather skirt - it's an interesting look for her, and very haute couture.
> Jennifer Lopez and Laverne Cox slayed like the fabulous divas that they are.
Lady Gaga both showed off their tattoos and bare midriffs with edgy statement-making looks.
And no one could top Queen (mother) B and her instantly legendary performance.
The 23rd annual Screen Actor's Guild Awards are happening, the stars are definitely out on the red carpet tonight!
We love a bold pattern on the red carpet, and so did Michelle Dockery and Yara Shadidi with their rainbow-hued stripes.
And could hair jewelry be a new trend? Between Janelle Monae's various red carpet looks (including tonight's sculptural statement) and now Danielle Brooks, it looks like adding some bling to your tresses is becoming a thing.
Sophia Bush and Anna Chlumsky channeled their inner Elle Woods in shocking pink strapless gowns, and Michelle Williams looked like a modern goddess in a metallic column.
Amanda Peet also went for all black but with cutouts, Kathryn Hahn wore an elegantly draped black number, and Kate Hudson looked quite unlike her usual fresh-faced self in sheer, somewhat tropical-goth glam (yes we just made up that term) from Dior, and we kind of enjoy how she switched it up for the night.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are relationship and life #goals as always, Lori Petty defined advanced style, and Viola Davis looked like she was having more fun than anyone else on the carpet.
Meryl Streep is always worthy of a mention, and her all white look with a print that resembles a flock of doves is an interesting choice - and perhaps a statement about today's world? Thandie Newton looked chic in a black and gold dress that might actually be the coolest way to combine city and country style we've ever seen.
And finally, the Stranger Things kids stole the show early on - just check out those blue suede shoes.
It's the start of the red carpet season and we're pretty thrilled! Not only are some of our favorite movies and television shows up for some major awards, some of our most beloved stars are hitting the red carpet wearing fabulous ensembles for us to ooh and ahh over, discuss and of course, judge.
So let's play fashion police, shall we?
Anna Kendrick went for a vintage look in Vionnet, and we think the original Madame Vionnet would approve. Amy Adams has an almost unreal perfection in a squared off black sequined strapless dress, and Felicity Huffman rocked some metallic colorblocking with her unique jumpsuit.
Lily Collins wore a lacy blush pink ballgown that we have mixed feelings about (it's a little reminiscent of curtains, no?), and Carry Metz chose to make a very regal statement in drapey purple velvet number. Mandy Moore went for the drama with a navy dress featuring a deep V neck and a cape! Superhero-esque fashion is something that we can definitely get behind.
Metallics were definitely a "thing" this year, with Emily Ratajkowski and Ruth Negga looking like goddesses visiting from the future.
Kristin Bell looks like the baddest b*tch, and we're totally here for that. Evan Rachel Wood wore a sharply cut tuxedo as homage to David Bowie (January 8th was his birthday) and also as a way to show all the young girls watching that they don't have to wear dresses to be glamourous. She might be our favorite of the night!
Michelle Williams looks like she's actually wearing a tablecloth. We love embellishment in general and lace in particular, but this was a rare misstep for her. Felicity Jones should have taken one thing off her dress before she left the limo (we vote for that oddly stranded bow at the waist), and Jessica Biel looks great from the waist up, but like she's wrapped in an afghan from waist down.
Janelle Monae gave us monochrome glamour in her trademark black and white color palette. Kerry Washington had a bit of a warrior princess vibe happening in gold lace, and Drew Barrymore took her trademark flower-child vibe to a very haute couture place.
Emma Stone wore a pale pink dress that had a vintage ballerina vibe to it but made the look modern with a sprinkling of stars. Sarah Jessica Parker somehow reminded us of bride, figure skater, and a meringue all in one (and that's the nicest thing we can find to say), and Hailee Steinfield channeled her inner fairy princess with lavender ruffles.
Tracy Ellis Ross proved that you can never have too many rings - perhaps #HandParty is the new #ArmParty? We kind of hope so. Golden girl and nominee Natalie Portman made us jealous of how utterly chic she looks while also very pregnant.
The Academy Awards are not only Hollywood's biggest event of the year, they are the also biggest night of the year for all of us at home. Therefore, whether you're hosting an Oscar watch party complete with champagne and a little glamour or just checking your social media feeds for winners and red carpet photos, you're probably paying attention to the ceremony.
Some of the nominees for best picture include La La Land (for basically everything), Hidden Figures, Fences, Lion, and Manchester By The Sea. Ruth Negga, Natalie Portman, and Meryl Streep for Best Actress, and Ryan Gosling, Viggo Mortensen, and Casey Affleck for Best Actor.

So who do you think will take home a statue? Who will rock the red carpet in a statement ensemble? And who will end up on the best or worst dressed lists? It's all happening on February 26, 2017 - and we'll be covering it live, so join us on Facebook and Twitter and share your wittiest commentary.
The 70th annual American Theatre Wing's Tony Awards show aired on CBS on June 12th and it was certainly a memorable night. Hosted by the Late Late Show host and Broadway veteran James Corden, it was a night dominated by the hit musical Hamilton and perseverance in the face of the tragedy in Orlando. Here are some of the highlights from Broadway's finest night:
Who doesn't love a good melody? Corden explained how his love of theatre began at an early age, and paid tribute to the shows that inspired him. And who didn't love the parody of the opening number of Hamilton?
Sometime acceptance speeches are long ramblings of everyone special in the winner's life. Not Lin-Manuel Miranda's acceptance for best score for his hit Hamilton. It was both a love poem to his wife, Vanessa, as well as an elegy for those who lost their lives in the tragic mass shooting in Orlando. "When senseless acts of tragedy remind us/That nothing here is promised, not one day/This show is proof that history remembers," he said through tears.
This joke is just too good. Basically, if you're an actor in New York, you've been on an episode (or two, or three, or four...) of Law & Order.
With a record-breaking 16 nominations, it was certainly a big night for the hit musical. With 11 wins, the show did not break the record for most wins, just falling shy of The Producers' 12 wins.
