i took some serious notes but here are my opinion for overall winners:
best dress: claire danes (homeland)
her dress was simple in the front but the back was stunning. overall best dress in my opinion. i'm glad she wore her hair up to show off the back of the dress. her lip color was a little overwhelming but loved the dress.
best jewelry: freida pinto
her chopard necklace, which you can't really see in this picture, was stunning. her dress and hair were simple and beautiful but the necklace really put her outfit over the top.
best hair and best makeup: charlize theron (young adult)
charlize theron might be the most beautiful woman on the planet in my opinion. her sparkly head band and light makeup with her blush dress was simply divine.
honorable mention for looking pretty great: sofia vergara (modern family), paula patton, and berenice bejo (the artist)

i can't really pick one for worst dress so we'll just say it's a tie between: piper perabo (covert affairs), amanda peet, zooey deschanel (new girl)

and here are just some of my own random thoughts (most of them first impressions) on other dresses:
ricky gervais: liked the red suit, but the tuxedo shirt underneath looked cheap.
stacy kiebler (being george clooney's gf): stunning in red, bad look with the bow from the back.
ariel winter (modern family): perfect in purple for her age.
kristin wiig (bridesmaids): hair = ick.
angelina jolie (in the land of blood and honey): good to see her in some color but her arms are scary skinny.
madonna (W.E.): ick on the dress, double ick on the arms.
jessica chastain (the help): just say no to turtlenecks.
shailene woodley (the descendants): different in silver but very pretty.
elle mcpherson: bottom too much, back too much, top too much.
viola davis (the help): hottie showing some leg but needs a little more sparkle from a brooch or belt.
gerard butler: stop dying your hair.
rooney mara (girl with the dragon tattoo): we get it, you're dark and mysterious. wear something other than black.
josh brolin: babe.
rob lowe (parks and recreation): double babe.
sarah michelle gellar: you look like spin art.
debra messing (smash): you are so purdy but you always wear the same dress.
adam levine (the voice): your bow tie is too big.
lea michelle (glee): your dress looks like a copy of previous halle berry and sandra bullock dresses.
diana agron (glee): dress resembles chinese restaurant decorations.
nicole kidman: rhinestone cowboy.
salma hayek (puss in boots): too militant.
michelle williams (my week with marilyn): cute headband, cute dress.
george clooney (the descendants): perfection.
can't wait for the oscars!
p.s. ricky gervais as the host made me laugh out loud every time he spoke.
