Movies are well and good, but our favorite part of awards season is ogling the stunning dresses. So, as we patiently wait for the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 5, let’s indulge in a quick recap of the 14 best Golden Globes dresses of all time.

The blonde bombshell collected the “Henrietta” award at the 1962 Globes wearing a sequined Norman Norell gown that’d be just as stylish now as it was then.

3. Jennifer Aniston, 2004

The same year Aniston said goodbye to Friends, she donned a stunning black Valentino gown that was both classic and daring. (Remember, this was, like, ten years before “side boob” was a thing.)

4. Nicole Kidman, 2005

Kidman peacocked, both literally and figuratively, when she snagged the award for Best Actress in a Drama Motion Picture in a slinky bias-cut Gucci number. The plume details and rich hue were an unexpected choice for an actress who typically goes neutral.

5. Keira Knightley, 2006

We love how Knightley’s crepe satin Valentino pairs a simple column silhouette with a flashy kimono belt and tassels.

6. Eva Mendes, 2009

Mendes frequently gravitates toward feminine pieces with flourish. This Christian Dior is proof that all white plus oversize bows need not look bridal.

7. Angelina Jolie, 2011

Angie stole the show back in ’11 when she appeared like a Kelly green (Versace) goddess in a sea of black and white.

8. Lupita Nyong'o, 2014

Who says you have to have superpowers to flaunt a cape?

9. Julianne Moore, 2015

Sequins, feathers, sass…this Givenchy gown truly has everything. 

10. Jennifer Lawrence, 2016

We love the way this Dior number plays with proportion and sex (those side cutouts!) and nods to the crop-top trend that seemed to be everywhere that year.

11. Jessica Biel, 2017

It takes guts to rock a décolleté, and Jessica Biel did just that in this stunning Elie Saab ensemble.

12. Catherine Zeta-jones, 2018

Although everyone wore black dresses to the 75th annual Golden Globes, Catherine Zeta-Jones’s sheer gown was undoubtedly memorable.

14. Sandra Oh, 2019

Not only did Oh take home the award for Best Actress in a Drama TV Series for Killing Eve, but she also looked incredible in this white Atelier Versace.
