Dressing the Golden Globe Nominees: Actress, TV Comedy or Musical Series Edition

Dressing the Golden Globe Nominees is a week-long series devoted to seeking out the best dresses for all the nominated females in both television and film leading up to the awards on Sunday, January 15. Each day we'll look at a new category and a new batch of actresses because they totally haven't already had their outfits chosen by paid professionals already for like months now.  All of the dresses are from the Spring 2012 RTW collections.

Zooey Deschanel, New Girl (Fox)

Hehe. Just kidding. 

But I'm deadly serious about this Temperley London. I know Zooey's look is her thing. But...new year, new single life, new chance to embrace a colorless dropped waist dress.

Laura Dern, Enlightened (HBO)

Laura Dern is one tall, bony woman. Theoretically it should be easier to slap a runway dress on her frame than say, little Natalie Portman, but for some reason tall women on the red carpet just look a little out of place in any old gown. We've seen it with Jane Lynch, Geena Davis, and the other three tall ladies in the existence of television and movies too. So, as a remedy, she should consciously choose a dress that a shorter person CAN'T pull off, which is why I love this blue, sequined, Elie Saab. It was made for a Katherine Hepburn/Laura Dern type: the curve-less statue with collarbones for miles. 

Tina Fey, 30 Rock (NBC)

Does anyone else get the impression that Tina Fey is just generally uncomfortable in evening wear? Yeah, I know in the photo above she's holding her own freaking umbrella (because the Globes event staff couldn't get their act together to rent a damn tent even though it had totally been raining for more than 10 minutes prior to the red carpet) and is probably just feeling awkward because she didn't practice her holding an umbrella while posing in a frou frou dress. But beyond all that, she still doesn't look like she can breathe in that bodice, which is why I think she'd appreciate this flowy, color-blocked Salvatore Ferragamo

Laura Linney, The Big C (Showtime)

Laura Linney is a red carpet rock star. She sticks to a great blowout, solid colors, and classic prom queen silhouettes. I seriously have no complaints. This Zac Posen will be a little more difficult to walk in, but no one really WALKS down the red carpet, right? It's more of a shuffle.

Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation (NBC)

What can I say? You look good in blue, kid. Also this will be easy to walk around in...you know...to the bathroom...and the stage when they call your name to win this category because seriously if they don't I'll just swear off awards shows not really everyone knows they're stupid anyway and I not so secretly love them if you haven't been able to tell already so you get my point, right?

Things will resume on Monday with Best Actress in a Drama Series.
