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.

    I can’t believe I missed the 30 Rock stuff – I was out walking the dog, darnit. I did, however, really enjoy Kate Winslet trying to remember “the other one.”

    I didn’t see the press conference, but I will say that I love that Obama’s mother-in-law is moving in. What a great choice for the girls.

    It will come as no surprise that my favorite part of the night was the turquoise and diamond necklace worn by the woman I don’t know in the white dress. That was lovely. I also really liked Christina Applegate’s necklace. I was not a fan of Beyonce’s necklace. I agree about KW and AJ. Some really lovely dresses and some not so lovely. I think Drew Barrymore couldn’t quite pull off whatever look she was going for. Substancs-wise: I’m glad I rented John Adams and was pleased to see that Cranford was nominated (I think twice). Can’t wait for the oscars!

    I just LOVED tracy Morgan’s 30 rock speech. “lorny Mikes” slayed me, as did his reason for winning the rights to the speech on the first place. When he said “because a black man can’t get no love at the Emmy’s,” I almost died. Brilliant.

    I really didn’t like the Drew moments, and she and Jessica LAnge were just being weird up there when the presented, and her didn’t do much for her complexion.

    I also really liked Ricky Gervais. My favorite part was that he was drinking a beer the whole time.

    I still haven’t seen “Slumdog,” I know I’m terrible, I’m going to go tonight, but can i just say, “Go Indians!.”

    Last comment, The Hollywood Reporter’s first line of their Golden Globe review was: “The 66th annual Golden Globes was an international smorgasbord with a heavy dose of curry Sunday.” I have to admit I found that kind of annoying.

    I just read the Christopher Hitchens article- he definitely deserved a big “Suck it.” Appalling.

    IT’S SO &^%$@@&*( COLD. We have these Alberta Clippers coming through — at first I thought they were a hockey team or something but, really, they are nasty winds and I think one is whipping through my office right now.

    I totally missed the globes, and, embarrassingly, when i saw the title of your blog, for a moment i thought that maybe you had gone to a harlem globetrotters game.

    i love 30rock, tracy morgan, and tina fey, so i’m happy they won. i don’t know which i liked best out of milk, slumdog, and doubt. i liked them all a lot, for different reasons, but none is my absolute fave. maybe that will be frost/nixon.

    I can’t stop laughing about this. Andy Moore is maybe my favorite collumnist ever.
