Producers Guild Awards 2015

Awards season continues apace as the various Guilds hand out awards to each other. Tonight, the Producers kicked off the guilds by awarding prizes to producers of both cinema and television. What is most interesting about tonight is that the award for best picture is different from the Golden Globe winner. No clear Oscar winner yet.

Although the awards are not televised, there is the requisite red carpet. I know that I do not have sunbunny's amazing sense of style, but I just had to show you the best of the night. This may be the most beautiful dress I have ever seen. Of course, that is Jennifer Lawrence wearing it. She always looks great.

ChrisB is astonished that she actually checked out the red carpet looks tonight. She is growing as a person.

Jennifer Lawrence has the most amazing taste in clothes, as well as always looking gorgeous in them.

Sometimes I agree with the awards and sometimes I don't.
