Please welcome! Robert Downey Jr. with a montage from The Artist! Aw, because of the old silent movies, yes.

Please also welcome! Angelina Jolie! Jesus, she kinda looks like a vampire. White satin sheath gown, red foldy neckline thing, kinda gaunt, BIG RED LIPS.

BEST DIRECTOR – MOTION PICTURE
WOODY ALLEN – MIDNIGHT IN PARIS
GEORGE CLOONEY – THE IDES OF MARCH
MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS – THE ARTIST
ALEXANDER PAYNE – THE DESCENDANTS
MARTIN SCORSESE – HUGO

Winner: Scorsese! Beaming, standing ovation, etc. Aw. "Sit down, sit down everybody!" Apparently his wife said, "Why don't you make a movie our daughter can see for once?" Heh. Please sir, can I borrow a cup of energy? You seem ready to motor-mouth through a film lecture right now, and I'm not finging so well two hours into this.

Ricky Gervais is excited to present Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas, "ridiculously gorgeous specimens, enormously talented," and probably interesting people but he doesn't know because he can't ALL THE SOUND GOES OUT. If NBC did it on purpose, I'm pretty sure it's because he said, "I couldn't fucking understand a word they said." However, my sound came back on and then went out again, and I can't hear shit, so it might not have been on purpose. Seriously, apparently Modern Family just won something and I have no sound.

@cleolinda: THERE IS STILL NO SOUND. RICKY GERVAIS IS NOT IN THE COMMERCIALS. LET US HAVE THE SOUND BACK.

@Salome: I hope someday Birmingham gets talkies. #GoldenGlobes

BA DUH DUH BA DUH DUH BAAAAAA. THIS! is a montage of War Horse. Dammit, Michelle Pfeiffer, I was totally prepared to just intepret what I thought might be happening for the entire next half hour.

Oh, Jesus, it's a Wahlberg--what the hell is Jessica Biel wearing? It's like--showgirl Edwardian? I--don't know.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
JEAN DUJARDIN – THE ARTIST
BRENDAN GLEESON – THE GUARD
JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT – 50/50
RYAN GOSLING – CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE.
OWEN WILSON – MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

Winner: Jean Dujardin, whose name Jessica Biel has been practicing all night. He apologizes for also being French, and then my mother came in and asked what was going on with the sound not working, and then he ends his speech by pantomiming something from the movie and WHOA WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ON SWINTON'S HEAD? I--I have questions.

The sound going out was almost certainly on purpose.

at least the first time. After that...I dunno. Maybe they were having a fun time hitting the silent button.

Yeah, my sound went out for The Phrase and then came back on. It's too bad you didn't have sound; the Modern Family award was an extended joke in Spanish and English, and I thought you knew Spanish...:)</p>

And now my sound went out for Meryl Streep's speech - did she burst into obscenities?


I think she said "oh shit, I forgot my glasses" or something like that. The audience is the worst as passing things to the stage.

Yeah watching the guy get reading glasses passed to him by George Clooney, and then being all awkward about taking them to Meryl Streep....is a sentence you can only write in Hollywood..:)

Hurrah, Meryl Streep! \o/

(Also, yay for the shoutout to Mia Wasikowska in Jane Eyre.)

If Jolie is a vampire she must've fed before the show because last year by this point she was reclining, half-asleep against Pitt.

I'm not sure George Clooney really deserved the award but I think it might have been worth it for the "golf" joke.

I have nothing else to contribute to comment but-

FAAAAAAAASSSsBENDERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

I kind of want to see Shame now.

Ugh, closest showing is 200 miles away.

Cleo, I'm pretty sure the reason why RDJ did the intro for The Artist was because he played Charlie Chaplin.

Well, yes, hence the "CHAPLIN!" he started off with. I was including that generally as "silent movies."

CHARLIE :D Charlie needs to be mentioned, and recognized as the God of Hollywood that he is.
Also... Ernst Lubitsch, what a force he was, and hardly anyone ever mentions him anymore. GO RDJ!

wait they really did it?

they really cut the sound while gervais was talking.? and I missed it?



I have One word- Karma!

Kinda bitter that Fassbender didn't win for Shame, but I knew he was a dark horse in the race.

Yeah, as far as I could tell, whenever the sound cut out on my set it's cuz the show was being censored for someone cursing. I noticed that with Ricky and with Meryl. It cut out when Ricky said something along the lines of not understanding a fuckin' word that either Salma Hayek or and Antonio Banderas were saying. and Meryl cursed about forgetting her glasses before going onstage. As you said in Jean Dujardin's case though, he was miming something quietly as an homage to his film, but until my sister pointed that out, I actually thought the sound had dropped off accidentally there.



I saw Jean Dujardin on "Charlie Rose" this week and he speaks very little English. Thankfully, he was there with Michel Hazanavicius, who speaks better English. :)

I'm gonna have to rent "L'Artiste" when it hits plastic.

You should check out "OSS 117: Cairo, Nest Of Spies", a French spy spoof starring Jean Dujardin. It's hilarious!
