Golden Globes #4

WHAT DID I MISS WHAT DID I MISS wow, Kristen Bell is a tiny person.

Best Supporting Actor in a TV Show, Miniseries or TV Movie
Max Greenfield, "New Girl"
Ed Harris, "Game Change"
Danny Huston, "Magic City"
Mandy Patinkin, "Homeland"
Eric Stonestreet, "Modern Family"

WINNER: Ed Harris, who could not be here tonight! Kristen Bell's aqua tinyness is escorted from the stage.

Here is! Jamie Foxx! To present the Django Unchained montage. They have many nominations ("best supporting actor nominations--already won one of those!"), so let's all take a moment to reflect how much the Oscars do not ever, ever want Leonardo DiCaprio to win anything. Also, that I am surprised Jamie Foxx himself is not getting nominated for things.

Meanwhile, Megan Fox wants Jonah Hill to call her back. She and Amy Adams seem to be wearing similarly strapless nude dresses. Afterwards, they will fight with knives in the parking lot, and he will referee.

Best Supporting Actress
Amy Adams, "The Master"
Sally Field, "Lincoln"
Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables"
Helen Hunt, "The Sessions"
Nicole Kidman, "The Paperboy"

WINNER: Anne Hathaway. "Blerg," she says. (Yes.) "Omg, this is happening. Thank you for this lovely blunt object, which I will use forever more as a weapon against self doubt," and in the Battle of the Beiges girlfight two hours from now. She specifically thanks Sally Field for setting the example of someone who grew up from playing the Flying Nun to being a great Oscar-winning actress ("As the former princess of Genovia, I have to thank you so much for being a vanguard against type-casting"), God bless.

Commercials! Oz the Great and Powerful: still not sure if want.

Please welcome! Amanda Seyfried and Robert Pattinson! They will tear her to shreds. She has the best dress, but the Beiges will strip her and throw her carcass to the howling fans, and they will laugh.

Best Screenplay
Mark Boal, "Zero Dark Thirty"
Tony Kushner, "Lincoln"
David O'Russell, "Silver Linings Playbook"
Quentin Tarantino, "Django Unchained"
Chris Terrio, "Argo"

WINNER: Tarantino! He thanks his actors and also his friends, who he reads his scripts out loud to as he writes them. "I don't want input, I don't want you to tell me if I'm doing anything wrong! Heaven forbid! But when I read it to you, I hear it through your ears, and I know if I'm on the right track." Actually? Write this down. This is good advice.

PLEASE WELCOME! COMEDY SUPERSTAR JEREMY IRONS. "Britain's leading fisheries expert..." That is not what I expected to come out of his mouth. But he says "Lasse Hallström" very nicely. (A Salmon Fishing in the Yemen montage.)

Let us just stop a moment and appreciate the flowered-wallpaper pale-blue ballgown that Lucy Liu is wearing. I am serious. It is the fiercest upholstery woman will ever wear. Debra Messing is in black and there is some ruching I think, whatever. THAT DRESS.

Best Actor in a TV Comedy
Alec Baldwin, "30 Rock"
Don Cheadle, "House of Lies"
Louis C.K., "Louie"
Matt LeBlanc, "Episodes"
Jim Parsons, "The Big Bang Theory"

WINNER: Don Cheadle! With a very strange cut to a serious non-happy DiCaprio while he speeches, not sure what that was about.

Please welcome! Stallone and Schwarzenegger to present... Best Foreign Film? "Because for both of us English is a foreign language." Stallone: "I can't be as bad as you!"

Best Foreign Language Film
"A Royal Affair"
"The Intouchables"
"Rust and Bone"

"And the Gorden Glorb goes to..."

WINNER: Amour, confirming for me that the director's name is pronounced a good bit like "Hannukah." The more you know. Michael Haneke thanks as many people as he can, but "there is too much people to thank everybody." As I always like to remind myself during these awards: he is doing a shitload better than I would be doing in, say, Spain right now.

Please welcome! I think this is Nathan Fillion! And Lea Michele, who is also tiny, and in white. A small size can be a great advantage when running from women tottering on high heels, but it is more difficult to execute the finishing move.

Best Actress in a TV Drama
Connie Britton, "Nashville"
Glenn Close, "Damages"
Claire Danes, "Homeland"
Michelle Dockery, "Downton Abbey"
Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife"

WINNER: Claire Danes, who is amazed by how "insanely generous" the HFPA has been to her. She also thanks her costume designer, who took her "PANTS OUT EVERY DAMN WEEK" when she was pregnant. Aaaaand commercials.

Anne Hathaway is amazingly classy in so many ways and she has a sense of humor oh my gods I love her so much.

Yay Anne Hathaway!!

(I think my favourite dresses so far are being worn Lucy Liu, Debra Messing, & Jennifer Lawrence.)

I can't figure out if Aziz was embarrassingly drunk or embarrassingly pretending to be drunk?!

Apparently "embarrassing" is pretty much the keyword for the presenters for tonight.

Will and Kirsten were funny, everybody else just tried too hard.

Megan Fox rocked her dress a lot better than Amy Adams, who just lookd washed out by the color too similar to her own skintone.

As I always like to remind myself during these awards: he is doing a shitload better than I would be doing in, say, Spain right now.

Yeah, especially since he must be fluent in French as well, or Amour probably wouldn't have been possibe. (Though personally, I always think that if you've mastered languages like German and French, English must be a piece of cake.)

I totally just wanna hang out and have a girls night with Anne Hathaway. What was Deb (Hugh's wife) up to during that speech? He was watching attentively, she was staring of house right...are there jumbotrons in the house?

Anne Hathaway really deserved that win and her little speech made me tear up and smile.
(althought- did she hated being in the princess diaries (cause if it was me- I be more mortified of the role in Ella Enchanted which was a mess, than princess diaries- or was her comment more directed at type-casting?)

on the Leo dicaprio front- it does makes me so sad when he gets nominated and doesn't win and he looks so deflated and sad-- but someone in tumblr pointed out that he did Received a golden globe award for "The Aviator" (which makes me a bit happy that at least he won at some point- what makes me sad thought is he hasn't won awards for slightly better movie roles such as blood diamond, revolutionary road and specially, J.Edgar)

Tarantino has a funny voice? it's the first time i seen him speak and his voice threw me off slightly.

looking forward to see more of jeremy irons. (and I hope Beautiful Creatures is better than the mess eragon was)

agree that lucy liu Dress was GORGEOUS! (and a nice old-fashion surprise)

i'm happy Don Cheadle won - I'm Not so happy he won for that particular role in that particular show (I know people that work in management consulting and the way the show House of Lies portray it is way off and gives a bad rep to their type of work (like they job is not that cut-throat "by any means necessary" that the show makes it seem as!
extremely Competitive-yes. Ruthless? No.)

Claire Danes! YAY! *she looked so pretty*

I took it as "It's really hard to be taken as a SRS ACTRSS after the kiddie roles, like the Princess Diaries." (which lets face it, made her, and the less said about Ella Enchanted the better) SOmetimes it's hard to not be defined by the thing that threw you into the spotlight.

Oh thank goodness for you; I am not watching because I was scared of the Easy Listening Jazz in the intro, but now I know I won't miss anything worthwhile! :)
