Golden Globes #6
yahoo oscars aqua
Gervais lauds the versality of a man who has played "a boxer, and Rambo." Please welcome! Sylvester Stallone! He is here to present a clip from The Fighter! Because of course.

Please welcome! Geoffrey Rush and Tilda Swinton! Don't mind if I do! SWINTON is in a shapeless sort of long white shirt dress, because she can. Geoffrey Rush is wearing a fedora, as you do. They pronounce "Special Relationship" and "Ramirez"
with gusto, respectively.

@fuggirls: We just got a bunch of tweets saying merely "SWINTON!" which is actually what I just squawked here in my living room to H. - J

Best Actor — Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie
Idris Elba, Luther
Ian McShane, Pillars of the Earth
Al Pacino, You Don’t Know Jack
Dennis Quaid, The Special Relationship
Edgar Ramirez, Carlos

Paul Giamatti half gets up to let Pacino squeeze by to get to the stage. I'm not sure why there's a shot of Lea Michele gazing moistly at him.

I wish I could reproduce the way SWINTON pronounces "series."

Best Actress — Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie
Hayley Atwell, Pillars of the Earth
Claire Danes, Temple Grandin
Judi Dench, Return to Cranford
Romola Garai, Emma
Jennifer Love Hewitt, The Client List

Jennifer Love Hewitt was nominated for THE CLIENT LIST? SERIOUSLY? Against JUDI DENCH? Claire Danes, blessedly, wins. Wow, that is a bright, hot, flamingo pink. It is a world-annihilating pink. This pink is a destroyer of worlds. "This is soooo coool!" Aw, Temple Grandin herself is here tonight. Jennifer Love Hewitt stares at her with tanned, heavy-lidded eyes that promise vengeance.

Soon to be seen in something! Zac Efron with no hair! I mean, he has hair. Just not a whole lot of it. Nominated for four awards, The Kids Are All Right! I don't know what this has to do with Zac Efron! Yay.

Gervais: "The next two people are two of the funniest people in America. [Steve Carell] is now leaving The Office and killing a cash cow for both of us! Please welcome! Tina Fey and the ungrateful Steve Carell!" I love Steve Carell, but he's in that I AM BOMBASTICALLY FUNNY! mode that just makes me tired. Bless.

Best Screenplay
127 Hours, Simon Beaufoy and Danny Boyle
Inception, Christopher Nolan
The Kids Are All Right, Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg
The King’s Speech, David Seidler
The Social Network, Aaron Sorkin

Aaron Sorkin wins! I am happy for a movie I actually saw! This is the man who came up with the word "Winklevi." WINNER. Also: "Elite is not a bad word, it's an aspirational one."

Please welcome! Chris "Thor" Hemsworth and Chris "Captain America" Evans! I... I'm not feeling the Chris Evans thing right now. He looks painfully muscly at the moment.

Best Supporting Actress in TV Series, Mini-Series, or Made-for-TV Movie
Hope Davis, The Special Relationship
Jane Lynch, Glee
Kelly Macdonald, Boardwalk Empire
Julia Stiles, Dexter
Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

HUGE cheer for Jane Lynch, who wins (aw, ilu Kelly Macdonald). Sofia Vergara, undaunted, steals a hug from someone in front of her. Lynch thanks Ryan Murphy (I think?) Ian Brennan for "every heinous, deranged line that comes out of my mouth."

SPARKLE ADVISORY: We are informed that Robert Pattinson will be up to bat soon. Summon or subdue your local Twifans as you deem appropriate.

My favorite was Tilda pronouncing "The Pillars of Uhhhhhhth."

Jane Lynch actually thanked one of the other writers for writing her lines. Can't recall his name, though.

I want an icon of "Elite is not a bad word, it's an aspirational one."

She thanked Ian Brennan, who actually came up with the idea of Glee. (I tend to like his episodes the best.)

RPATZ is being out-sparkled by Olivia Wilde's dress.

Poor Robert Pattinson can't get close to the mic because of Olivia Wilde's gorgeous dress.


Yay for Jane Lynch and yay for Steve Carell vs Ricky Gervais moments. I always enjoy them.

The segue from 'we play superheroes' to 'here are some actresses' did not do those poor men any favors.

I've noticed Lea Michele is gazing mistily at everyone.

RPattz just kept his bitch face on the whole time. Probably because he was trying to escape being eaten by Olivia Wilde's dress. Good lord that thing was large.

Hey what's with that Windows Phone commercial with the unemployed actors?!

Yay! Laura Linney! \o/ I love The Big C so much.

Gervais is being mean, yo. Woof.

Loved Olivia Wilde's dress though. Her hair, not so much, but the dress? Yes. It reminded me of Reese Witherspoon's Oscar dress from her win (2007? 2008?).

Laura Linney! I am pleasantly surprised!

Why does Swinton pronounce television as "televisual"?

Jane Lynch thanked another Glee writer, not Murphy.


Kaley Cuoco's reaction to that was adorable.
