Golden Globes #2

I'm still working on the previous entry when Rob Lowe and Julianne Moore come out to introduce Miss Golden Globes (uh) and at first I thought, after a looooong pause, that Moore was totally drunk but then I realized it was just that the teleprompter didn't work, so they bring the script pages up to her. "And this is why we LOVE THIS SHOW!" says Lowe gamely. "When was the last time you did a cold reading in front of Steven Spielberg?" Also, Downton Abbey wins stuff.

THE HOUR

TOO BIG TO FAIL

"How fabulous this is!" cries Julian Fellowes (I think this is Julian Fellowes). "It's the audience that makes us a success!" No kidding, this show has taken off like whoa, judging by my Twitter timeline. 

Lowe and Moore are still presenting--and may I add, the movie they mentioned that she's in next, Game Change, is, IIRC, an HBO movie about Sarah Palin, and I saw a picture of Moore in costume and it is freakish. Also, she is wearing big emerald earrings right now. help help I skipped finging practice

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
ROMOLA GARAI – THE HOUR
DIANE LANE – CINEMA VERITE
ELIZABETH MCGOVERN – DOWNTON ABBEY
EMILY WATSON – APPROPRIATE ADULT
KATE WINSLET – MILDRED PIERCE

"And the Golden Globe goes to KATE WINSLET," declares Lowe, in this wonderful WELL DUH tone. Like I can't even tell if he thinks this is a good thing or not. (Black, sleeveless, a long narrow what-the-Fug-Girls-would-call-a-boob-window, white sheath skirt). She thanks Todd Haynes effusively for his calmness and patience for seventeen weeks of filming, and Haynes kind of nods at her from the audience like, "lol, tell me about it." Apparently Winslet got good at awards speeches from that tour she made the other year because she is thanking the entire population of the world as hard and fast as she can. Like, I kind of can't even blame them for starting to play her off, since she's only just gotten to J in the phone book.

Please welcome! Freida Pinto! In sort of a slate teal ballgown! Not sure why we have a reaction shot to Leonardo DiCaprio squirming restlessly! Here is! A montage from Midnight in Paris!

"There's excitement in the air!" and mingling at the tables! and FEVERISH TYPING ON MY CARD TABLE.

OH MY GOD I WAS GOING TO HIT POST BUT IT IS TOO LATE

Please welcome! Jeremy Irons! And a tiny lady whose name I totally heard but did not quite catch! There is a philanthropy fund, and Jeremy Irons is literally two heads taller than this tiny lady, and "humanitarian services" sounds kind of amazing the way it rolls off his tongue. "Bravo," he concludes.

Ladies and gentlemen! A very serious! Jake! Gyllenhaal! THIS IS! A montage from My Week with Marilyn with a lot of hip-wiggling.

Ricky Gervais worriedly informs us that we are already five minutes over ("This is not my fault! I was bang-on!"), and asks us (KATE) to please not thank everyone in our entire family, "just the two main ones: God, and your agent. And God and my agent both have roughly the same amount of input in my career." Keep in mind this is a man who ended a previous Globes broadcast with, "Thank you to God for making me an atheist." The crowd rumbles.

Please welcome! Melissa McCarthy, Paula Patton, and an obligatory reference to Bridesmaids-related sink defecation! It's going to be a really long awards season.

BRYAN CRANSTON – BREAKING BAD
KELSEY GRAMMER – BOSS
JEREMY IRONS – THE BORGIAS

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
AMERICAN HORROR STORY
BOARDWALK EMPIRE
BOSS
GAME OF THRONES
HOMELAND

Winner: Homeland! The Guy Who Stands Up for All of Them thanks "the incandescent Claire Danes" (I think that is the word he used. I didn't have dinner and my blood sugar is low), who is wearing plain white and... nooooo, it is not. There is... some kind of... shoulder business. Sparkly black shoulder business and a black skirt? Scorsese and Emily Watson clink glasses out in the audience. It's good enough for me.

Ah, so that's why the audience went all somber at a reference to God. Makes more sense now.

Downton Abbey won? YAY! Cleo, have you SEEN Downton Abbey? BECAUSE IT IS FANTASTIC.

I'm late to the Globes. I wasn't even going to watch, but I can't resist the Twitter snark

Downton Abbey is SO AMAZING, if you haven't seen it. I watched the entire first season in like 2 days.

Still a little bitter that Damian Lewis didn't win for Homeland. I'm excited they won best series, and I haven't seen Boss, but Lewis was SO FREAKING GOOD in Homeland. My mother has been furiously texting me for the last 20 minutes about this.

...wha? I'm out of touch with you youth and your "pop culture" stuffs. Someone please draw me a map? Thanks.

Singers sing, fingers fing. Logic!

Heh, no, it's just a long-running liveblog joke that my fingers cease to fing after a certain point.

well at least it's better than last year

honestly, I think Gervais (and i dont care if i spelled his name wrong) has some sadistic pleasure on his anti-God jokes and making everyone, except people like him, uncomfortable in their seats.

he better not close the show with "Thank G..."

although, I still have a recording of the mixed audio of him saying "thank God- for making me an idiot" or something like that.

(which i plan to play on repeat if he keeps on being annoying and condescending this year.

on brighter news YAY! kate winslet! yay!DOWNTON ABBEY Yay Claire Danes!

(also thank You cleo for doing a livecast- cause i most certainly dont want to listen to gervais)
