Watch: Cate Blanchett Talks About The Unglamorous Side Of The Golden Globes

ICYMI: Golden Globes: A Roundup Of Gorgeous Gowns

Stars of the big and small screen arrive in their designer best, looking flawless only to spend the night eating and drinking with their equally famous friends, and though we may look on in envy at this relaxed, star-filled ceremony (a stark comparison to its formal?counterpart, The Oscars), the Carol star says?it has many downsides. For one thing it’s horribly packed and sweaty (like, mosh pit sweaty) and those divine gowns we’d kill to wear?
