Globedy Globes

I thought the show was, on the whole, super fun.  I love how relaxed and silly everyone is at the Globes, and how they always get it done in pretty much their alloted time.  I also love how there are really no super boring awards or long speeches from people who shouldn’t be allowed to give speeches.  My favorite moments were these (in no particular order):

1.  Tracy Morgan saying “Lorney Mikes.”

2.  Tracy Morgan in general.

3.  Tina Fey and how she’s so damn funny.  I wish she would have told Christopher Hitchens to suck it.

4.  Kate Winslet winning twice even though I have yet to see either of her movies.

5.  Kate Winslet forgetting Angelina Jolie was nominated.  So awesome.

6.  Steven Speilberg giving a rather forgettable speech but not really caring because he’s Steven Speilberg and he brushed by me at Sundance and I will never forgive myself for missing him and I love him so.

My least favorite moment was this: All the shots of Drew Barrymore.  What the hell was that about?

Did anyone catch any of Bush’s final press conference this morning?  I found it rather interesting.  He seemed very, well, engaged.  I don’t know.  I wouldn’t say he was genuinely relaxed or waxing particularly sentimental, but there was something rather honest and unguarded about it.  My favorite part, though, was when he said that he didn’t think Obama would feel isolated in the office because he will be a 45 second commute away from a great wife and two little girls who adore him.  I thought that was sweet.  And true.
