Starts at 60 Writers

The Starts at 60 writers team seek out interesting topics and write them especially for you.

  1. I didn’t but saw a replay of an amazing performance by Lady Gaga … A tribute to the 50th anniversary of Sound of Music. Didn’t realise she had such an amazing voice.

  2. Watch it every year with my daughter always enjoy it. Lady Gaga was the standout performance this year, she was amazing.

  3. Eddie Redmayne was fantastic in “The Theory of Everything”! A well deserved win. And “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the style awards away! (I haven’t seen ALL the movies though 🙂 )

    As for dress sense – Laura Dern, Julianne Moore and Mrs Steve Carrell get my vote.
