Golden Globes #2
yahoo oscars aqua
It's Lauren Graham, star of a show we just saw a commercial for! Alfre Woodard's daughter Mavis is Miss Unfortunately Titled Golden Globes. O HAI IT'S MICHAEL EMERSON! This is an award for TV things. *nod* Neil Patrick Harris! I like him, but he's no WHAT IN THE SWEET NAME OF GOD IS THAT. A beard the size of Montana is eating William Hurt's face. John Lithgow wins for Dexter. He is making his way through the auditorium, possibly in a circuitous fashion to escape the vengeful beard. He thanks Michael C. Hall, who is wearing a black knit cap, and I was about to say something catty until I remembered that he's currently recovering from cancer. Work it, bless.

Sir Paul McCartney! The audience is excited. "Hello! My name is Paul McCartney, or, as I'm known, That Guy From Rock Band." Best Animated Film! GOOOOOOOOOOOO you know what, never mind. I always jinx things by rooting for them. By the way, in case you did not know: "Animation is not just for children. It is also for adults who take drugs." So we have Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Coraline, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Princess and the Frog, and Up, which wins. Man, it is a tough category this year. Pete Docter is enthusiastic. The orchestra starts playing softly, HINT.

WOLFMAN WOLFMAN WOLFMAN! YAAAAAAY. I keep hearing that the production is troubled, but all the trailers have looked good! I live in hope.

(As you may be able to tell, we're at commercials now, but I just can't bring myself to hit post after only two paragraphs.)

"Please welcome the star of Nine..." That does not narrow it down, Announcer Man. "... Kate Hudson!" I am not sure what's going on with the top/bodice of her white gown--it kind of looks like my attempt at wrapping a present--but I'm not entirely sure I approve of it. And you know... I wanted to see Nine, but... I did not hear good things about it. Woe.

Gervais: "Well! It's going well, isn't it? We've had some worthy winners... and some... not-so-worthy ones." And now he's pimping the Invention of Lying DVD, much the way he already pimped the British Office DVDs, and my thought is not so much that this is "delightfully" tacky as it makes me wonder what else he can think of to shill. "One thing that can't be bought is a Golden Globe. Officially." Big, slightly uneasy laugh. I have no idea what this has to do with Felicity Huffman, who comes out in a peach drape/sparkle halter.... wow. She is so incredibly drunk. She trips up on the TelePrompter so bad that she has to start over twice. "I, like Ricky Gervais, will never be asked to do this again." Ah, the point of this was to introduce Philip Burke, "the man you would buy a Golden Globe from," I get it now. He is an official of some kind, therefore I have no idea what he said.

Jane Krakowski and Neil Patrick Harris, who starts mocking their large foreheads, which is a nice setup except for the fact that... Krakowski doesn't really have one. It's a setup for a joke about Alec Baldwin staring at her boobs with great professionalism, basically. OH MY GOD HELP I AM NOT TYPING FAST ENOUGH. Aw, Michael C. Hall wins for Dexter, that's nice. Lead in a TV drama, I'm assuming? I am so out of practice at this liveblogging thing. Wow, the announcer says he was in Cabaret, which NPH was also in. Interesting.

Best Actress TV Drama thing! Anna Paquin won this last year for True Blood, IIRC, and I have to tell you that I didn't understand it even then. Except that... well. HBO's a big spender. (What? I love her! I'm just saying: Sookie's not a Great Thespian Role.) Yay Julianna Margulies! I like her. "Glenn Close! I'd bow down, but... the dress would rip. [Black skirt, red sparkle assymetrical on top.] I'd just like to thank Les Moonves, for believing in the ten o'clock drama." The audience laughs: it's a subtle Leno-related slam at NBC.

Not a good night for TelePrompTers in general. Obama forgot what state he was in.

I like Pixar and all, but it seems like they are just handed wins now, no matter what. UP didn't thrill me like Wall-E did, I thought it was sort of... blah, after you get through the emotional sucker punch of the first half hour of the movie.

Coraline was incredible and actually SCARY. :(

"Animation is not just for children. It is also for adults who take drugs."

Did he really say that? I love him.

I love how people who aren't "in the know" about Michael C Hall's cancer are getting their asses chewed out on Twitter for dissing him about the hat.

Who isn't with Coco? ;)

But seriously, EVERYONE, including the test audience, thought the Jay Leno show was a terrible idea, and mourned the loss of more scripted TV on NBC....and then it did fail! So I loved that jibe, since scripted tv>>>reality TV/Jay Lamo.

WOW Felicity Huffman was sloshed. Or something.

I loved Margulies dress. Could do without Christina Aguilera's because it made it look like she forgot to stuff one of her boobs in.

I was wondering if that was a slam on NBC!

Harrison Ford was really drunk too, only for him it's a lifestyle, alas.

Yeah, he was reading that bad boy VERY slowly.

Not surprised by John Lithgow winning, his character was so creeeeeepy.

I...had no idea Michael C. Hall was recovering from cancer. I'm glad it's going well. AND THAT HE WON for Dexter. He's so fantastic as Dexter.

I thought it was kind of gross that in the shot behind Neil Patrick Harris in his seat was Mickey Rourke canoodling with his date. EW.

What's going on at NBC? I saw some headlines about Jay Leno arguing with Conan O'Brien, but I haven't followed the story.

NBC canceled Jay's 10pm show and offered him a half hour spot at 11:30, bumping back the rest of the late night line-up. Conan said yeah, no thanks, it's not the Tonight Show if it starts after midnight. So it's likely Conan's going to be bought out of his contract and Jay gets the Tonight Show back. Conan may land at Fox.

I love your live blog style! I always forget to say that, every awards show, but Drinky Oscars (such a great phrase!) has made me remember to tell you how awesome this set-up is. It's easier to stay caught up with the constantly refreshed at the bottom of a huge entry style that many live bloggers use.

Yeah, that drives me crazy--and refreshing at the top means it's hard as hell to read in one sitting, starting from the bottom. I've done it this way for years, and it seems to work pretty well. : )

Julianna Margulies kissing George Clooney on her way up was the best thing ever.

I know! I saw that and thought it was so cool.

Oh, is that why the Dexter guy has the black cap? I was wondering...

And yeah, loved that jibe against NBC, even though hearing Nina Tasler's name makes me cringe...

He thanks Michael C. Hall, who is wearing a black knit cap, and I was about to say something catty until I remembered that he's currently recovering from cancer.

Aw, oh really? I didn't know that. :(
