Our co-blogger Julia from California is a senior lifestyle editor who covered the latest news from the Golden Globes in L.A.

The Golden Globe is an award presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to recognize excellence in film and television. The annual formal ceremony and dinner at which the awards are presented is a major part of the film industry’s awards season, which culminates each year with the Academy Awards

Hours before the acutal event people gather to find the perfect spot so that they can check out the red carpet styles by the celebrities. As Julia told us, you need to be pretty lucky to get two or three great shots, since it’s pretty crazy out there. Either you know your way around and are hooked up with the important people so that even “the big ones” let you get your images or you just know how to use your elbows.

In the gallery above you see a few impressions of the red carpet styles as well as our favorite looks.

But way more important than any designer dress or fashion faux pas are the awards and the actual winners of the Golden Globes 2013.

Most of the winners above were actually not really a big surprise. We are especially happy for Claire Danes, Adele and Anne Hathaway. However, we are also a bit sad that Zooey Deschanel did not receive an award for her amazing role in the tv show New Girl. It was a lovely kick-off of the awards season, though, and we are already looking forward to the Oscars in February.

Special thanks to Julia for bringing us the inside scoop.
