Don’t blame it on losing an award to Maggie Gyllenhaal. Oscar winner Frances McDormand appeared less-than-thrilled to be at the awards show long before she failed to pick up a Globe for her starring role in “Olive Kitteridge.”

It all started with Amy Adams’ speech for best actress in a musical or comedy. To be fair, Adams did seem somewhat unprepared. But we know McDormand could have faked it better. She is, after all, a first-class actress.

In any case, her mood didn’t improve during the rest of the ceremony. Her expressions ranged from unamused to annoyed to bored.

She’s even drawing some comparisons to Tommy Lee Jones who was infamously Scrooge-like during last year’s  ceremony.

So what’s bothering her?

Well, it could be a mix of pent-up concern and anger. Last October, during a sit-down with the New York Times, McDormand talked about the plastic surgery phenomenon in Hollywood and how much it troubles her.

“I have not mutated myself in any way,” she told the Times. “Joel [Coen, her husband,] and I have this conversation a lot. He literally has to stop me physically from saying something to people — to friends who’ve had work. I’m so full of fear and rage about what they’ve done.”

If that’s the case, you can just imagine how many times her husband probably had to stop her along the red carpet and inside the Beverly Hilton. That’s enough to put anyone in a bad mood.

Then again, maybe she was just really hot.
