Simon Baker and Eva Longoria (in red), and I don't know if the audience is miked or what, but there's so much noise I almost can't hear them at first. They're here to introduce Miss Golden Globe 2009, Rumer Willis (whose updo looks great and is doing a fantastic job of minimizing her jaw. Look, I'm just saying), and give out
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Neil Patrick Harris, "How I Met Your Mother"
Denis Leary, "Recount"
Jeremy Piven, "Entourage"
Blair Underwood, "In Treatment"
Tom Wilkinson, "John Adams"
I would like to add here that the TV is to my right and slightly behind me, so typing and watching simultaneously are a bit difficult. Just keep that in mind. Anyway: Tom Wilkinson wins (huge cheers)--holy shit, he was Benjamin Franklin? I only walked in while my mother was watching it, and I had no idea that was him. Good job! I think he's a little drunk. Not that there's anything wrong with that at the Golden Globes. I'm just saying, he's not the most coherent I've ever seen him.
That said, I know a lot of people who are going to be sadfacing over the NPH loss. Hey, at least Jeremy Piven didn't win. (How's the sushi?)
(Whoa, Renee Zellweger is in some weird black thing with gigantic poofy hair. She looked like a saloon madam in the moment she went by.)
Baker and Longoria are still here! Let's multitask!
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Eileen Atkins, "Cranford"
Laura Dern, "Recount"
Melissa George, "In Treatment"
Rachel Griffiths, "Brothers & Sisters"
Dianne Wiest, "In Treatment"
HUGE cheer for Eileen Atkins, I just want to say. Laura Dern wins for Recount, however. (She was also Miss Golden Globe 1982.) Very cute black dress, I have to say--I missed the hemline, but it kind of has a kicky '50s look with a stripey bodice (look, I'm not good at this). Ah, there's the hem, it's kind of tea-length. I won't go into who all she thanks (well, notably, her parents), but she is pleased that the voice of the people was heard this election.
I don't know who Laurence Fishburne is talking to while everyone's table-hopping, but he seems very intense.
