(Newser) – Before the night is through there will be a new crop of Golden Globe award winners ... and plenty of actors and actresses (OK, honestly, mostly actresses) getting praise for their fashion slam dunks ... or poked at for their sartorial missteps. Check out the best and worst of the red carpet in the gallery, accompanied by some of our favorite tweets (read: verbal applause and snarks).
