The Golden Botox Globe Awards

I know, it's everyone's right to go to any length to look as freakish good as possible.   Some bob their nose, others go for the eye lift or some other tuck or trim.  

What Grandma J wants to talk about is the whole fixation with botox!  

For some reason botoxed foreheads are as shiney as a  simonized studebaker.   Not only are they shiney, but the people who get botox don't seem to have a clue about the whole shine thing.  How is that possible?  No mirrors?  No loved ones to tell them?  

Better yet, maybe the administrator of the botox injections could whisper in their ear....pssst, you might want to apply a tad bit of powder on your forehead before stepping in front of bright lights and cameras. 

Or at the very least show them a picture of Joe Biden, age 67.

As she watched the Golden Globe Awards last night, Grandma J couldn't help but notice how many actors and actresses had botox.   She also noticed some that didn't.  

Morgan Freeman didn't.....and Mel Gibson didn't.   Mickey probably didn't, but he had this hat on that hid most of his face.

Here's a sample of some botoxed celebrities who probably look a whole lot better with a few age lines.

Let's start with Awnald the Terminator....he's 63.

Then we have Jeff Bridges, age 61

How about Ms. Meryl who I adore with her laugh lines!.....age 60

Handsome Kevin Bacon, age 50.  Is it botox or not?

James Cameron, age 55.

Beloved Sophia Loren, bless her sweet heart, is 75!

There were several others, mostly in the audience  It's hard to take pictures of TV screens so, if you didn't watch then just take my word for it.

One more critique.......

What's with Julia's hair! 

As much as Grandma J loves the movies, and loves all of these celebrities.....she'd enjoy them a whole lot more without the distraction of shiney foreheads.

I think I have finally outgrown those people. Well, except maybe Meryl....

Linda said...

I didn't watch. It is just a self-love fest. Thanks for the wrap-up.

You needed to get a new one of Harry Reid...he looks like he got something done!

Connie said...

I do wonder sometimes why people think that getting work done like that makes them look better. More times than not they just look phony and plasticized.

Poor Sophia!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I missed watching this. Just as Julia misses her brush.

Daryl said...

I saw Crazy Heart and I don't think Jeff Bridges ever has had a Botox shot in his life .. and James Cameron is 55? Holy cow. I guess all those marriages aged him. ToonMan is closer to Sophia's age than James' and he looks a heck of a lot better!

I didn't watch this, but yesterday as I lay in bed all day in my robe I was watching Food Network. Sandra Lee's show on money-saving cooking came on, and I thought I was looking at the Joker on Batman! Her eyes were drawn up so tight I'm surprised she could see!

I also would like to know what is up with James Cameron's hair. Ick!

I didn't watch the show, but I don't get the cosmetic surgery thing. It's so obvious on a lot of people. I think I'd rather look normal with lines than look crazy without them.

Ellen said...

Glad I didn't watch. I am getting tired of celebs forgetting that they are just people too - get over it and look your age.

Didn't Jason complain of a shiny forehead a while back?! Perhaps he uses botox too LOL!

Happy Rainy Monday!
lMnop said...

Amen to that, GrandmaJ! And I can't believe with Julia's nice long neck and how graceful she looks with her hair up that she did that whole messy look thing for the occasion!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Oh how funny Grandma J you are! lol
I did not watch but five minutes of this but I am with you about botox....hahahaha
Yeah some of them need a new hairdo but I so need to try one myself.
Loved your post

No mention of Cher? OMG!

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

And what was with all the boobs-a-poppin'?

And why does Mariah Carey keep insisting on looking like she's a member of Prostitutes On Parade?

Call me a nut, but I don't find that look attractive in the least.

A little modesty is sexy.

Jason, as himself said...

I SWEAR I have never had Botox! My forehead is just naturally shiny. Promise!

Kevin Bacon is 50?

Deb said...

I didn't watch, but I think Julia's hair was the product of LA rain!

big hair envy said...

Dear LAWD! What's up with the age-denial?? I've earned every. single. one. of my wrinkles. Thank you very much!!!

I LUV Morgan Freeman and Mel Gibson...

Unknown said...

I wouldn't mind if people had wrinkles. Sometimes it depresses me. All that perfection. And then I look in my mirror and see MY horrendous forehead lines...and I just want to cry. And I also want to thank God that I do NOT live in Hollywood and millions of people are not seeing me on TV so I do NOT need to get botox. PHEW! needles freak me out!
