The Golden Globes
A list of what caught my attention at tonight’s award ceremony:
-Christian Bale winning – he was unbelievable in The Fighter and deserved this award more than anyone. In other news his hair looks like Eddie Vedder circa 1993 and I always forget that he is not American.
-Katey Sagal winning for her turn as the wrong mother to mess with on Sons of Anarchy – very cool to see someone so thrilled to win.
-Ricky Gervais referring to Bruce Willis as Ashton Kutcher’s dad.
-Crowd shot of Angelina Jolie fixing Brad Pitt’s tie.
-Toy Story 3 winning – especially the look on Tom Hanks’s face.
-Ricky Gervais calling out Robert Downey Jr.’s jail time.
-Robert Downey Jr. talking about all the famous actresses he has and has not slept with.
-Emma Stone is bleach blonde now? What the hell was she thinking? Did she want to look like one of Hef’s bunnies? Mission accomplished.
-Annett Bening giving her husband Warren Beatty a shout out during her acceptance speech by pointing out that he was the 1962 winner for the Golden Globe for Most Promising Actor.
-Al Pacino getting a standing ovation.
-Clare Danes – couldn’t miss her in that hot pink dress – hugging Temple Grandin (the woman she played) after hearing she won. P.S. The last time Danes was nominated she won and it was for her performance in My So-Called Life in the 90s.
-I need to see The Social Network immediately. I can’t believe I haven’t seen it yet.
-The boys who will play Thor and Captain America….wow.
-Apparently I need to see Burlesque as well – I wonder if it’s going to be the speakeasy version of Coyote Ugly. Hmm…
-Everyone from the cast of Glee is extremely dramatic – big surprise.
-Melissa Leo winning for her role as the tough-as-nails mother on The Fighter – awesome. Just awesome.
-Rodney – I mean Matt Damon – doing impressions of Robert De Niro. Priceless.
-Seeing a rundown of De Niro’s best work in honor of him receiving The Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures – they don’t call him a legend for nothing. The respect for De Niro in that room was palpable…just ask Tom Hanks who was crying.
-The crowd giving Michael Douglas a standing ovation and Robert Downey Jr. fist pumping for Mr. Gordo Gekko.
-Social Network – watching it tomorrow.
