    Sunday's Golden Globe Awards red carpet featured a bevy of black and white, but one little black dress stood out in a major way. Actress Katharine McPhee dazzled in a plunging V-neck gown with a thigh-high slit by Olivier Theyskens for Theory. And when we say plunging…

    The “Smash” star dominated the Sexiest Dress category (if there was one), leaving E! host Ryan Seacrest nearly speechless (and he's seen it all!).

    McPhee told Seacrest that black and white will be big for spring (she researched it!), so she got a jump start and went for it with the daring black stunner, despite the unseasonably chilly California weather. She accessorized with a high updo and swinging earrings, but left the necklace to the imagination.

    While several other Hollywood stars were shivering, the actress said she was too excited to be cold.

    "I'm not feeling anything," she said. "I'm just excited to be here."

  • Will the Globes’ love of new shows favor Lena Dunham?

    New shows tend to do well at the Golden Globe Awards, so will the first time be the charm for "Girls" and Lena Dunham?

    For the 70 th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the new HBO series about a group of 20-something New Yorker friends has nabbed a nomination in the Best Television Series category, as well as a Best Actress nom for Dunham.

    The competition is predictably stiff, with "The Big Bang Theory," "Episodes," and "Modern Family" all in the mix (there's also another newbie show, "Smash"). And 26-year-old Dunham will have to compete against Hollywood heavy hitters Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep"), Tina Fey ("30 Rock"), and Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation") in the acting category. She'll also have to face off against the current "New Girl" in town, awards show magnet Zooey Deschanel.
