Golden Globe Liveblog (Newest posts on top!)
My predictions went 11/14. I feel pretty proud that I got all the main categories, missing only score, song, and foreign film.
PIcture/Drama: 12 Years a Slave!!!!!!!! This is shaping up to be a very interesting Oscar race!!
Actor/Drama: Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. I like him... and he's good in this movie.... but can 12 Years a Slave really go home empty handed tonight??
Actress/Drama: The wonderful Cate Blanchett. Probably the best theater experience I've had was seeing her in Uncle Vanya at the Kennedy Center. She's amazing and it's a VERY well-deserved award.
Comedy/Musical: American Hustle of course. Haven't seen WoWS, but I greatly prefer Inside Llewyn Davis (!!), Nebraska (!), and Her.
Actor in Comedy/Musical. Leonardo DiCaprio in Wolf of Wall Street. I really really wanted Bruce Dern (or Oscar Isaac) to win. But the Globes love their stars.... Classy speech, though, for sure. Haven't made it to the Wolf of Wall Street yet, so I can't weigh in on it yet.
Best Comedy... Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I've never heard of this show until tonight.
Director... Alfonso Cuaron for Gravity. I wanted Steve McQueen but definitely a worthy winner. He's made 3 movies I love.... Y Tu Mama Tambien, Children of Men, and Gravity. I'm also really glad American Hustle is not steamrolling. Interesting that Best Director at Globes has not correlated to Oscar since 2008 (Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire).
Diane Keaton. Looking classy with her updated Annie Hall look, fully gray hair, and Woody glasses. A highlight of the show.
Side note.... a Revolution Foods commercial. It's my school lunch program. Weird.
Actress in a Comedy. AMY POEHLER!!!! This makes me so happy!! This amazing show finally gets some love.
Animated Film... Frozen.
Actor in a Miniseries... Michael Douglas in Behind the Candelabra of course.
Foreign Film. The Great Beauty. A bit of a surprise over Blue is the Warmest Color. This could be our Oscar winner as well.
Actor in a Comedy- Andy Samberg in.... something I've never heard of (Brooklyn Nine-Nine). I realize I watch none of these shows.
Screenplay. Spike Jonze for Her! Well-deserved! Perhaps (and I hope) American Hustle is not unstoppable.
Supporting Actor... Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club. He continues his road to Oscar. Who ever thought Jordan Catalano would be here. Also, the second male messy bun winner of the night.
In this year on the women. High neck and side boob.
Actress in a Drama... Robin Wright in House of Cards. Really thought (and hoped) this would go to Kerry Washington, but it went to the OTHER DC scandalous drama. Not a bad pick.
Amy Poehler as Tina Fey's son.... wow. Priceless!!
Actress in a Comedy/Musical. Amy Adams for American Hustle. Looks like it is cleaning up tonight. Not my pick, but I've always really liked Adams. I might have to predict her for an Oscar nom.
Supporting Actor to Jon Voight. With him and Jacqueline, going for the old folks this year. Aaron Paul was robbed. "Yeah, bitch."
Best song. "Ordinary Love" from Mandela. You can't beat Bono I guess.
Original score to All is Lost. A surprise! That composer looks like the coolest (most pot-smoking) guy in the room though. And... I guess he partied with P. Diddy. Just realized he is from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes.
They must have seated all the TV people in the back. These walks are taking way too long.
Drama to Breaking Bad!
Actor in a drama.... Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad. First Golden Globe EVER for the show. I hope it wins everything tonight. A great show.
Miniseries to... Behind the Candelabra. This was a very good movie, although I loved Top of the Lake more. It's on Netflix, so check it out.
Actress (Miniseries) to Elisabeth Moss (Top of the Lake). Well-deserved! Fun fact- she was married to Fred Armisen.
Jacqueline Bissett..... just so weird.
Supporting Actress goes to.... Jennifer Lawrence. I really wanted Lupita to win. Is she on her way to back-to-back Oscar wins. There's a really good chance.
Amy and Tina are killing it. Best jokes.... Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and George Clooney "who would rather float away in space and die then spend another minute with a woman his own age."
All right. I love Kerry Washington, but posing with her hand on the baby bump is a bit much.
OK. Julia Roberts. A white shirt under an evening gown.... worst dressed so far!
The double belt on Jennifer Lawrence is a mistake I think. You can't win them all, Jen!
Zooey Deschanel: "I had a cookie for breakfast.... which maybe I shouldn't have." Could she be any more annoying??
I guess Amy Adams decided she liked the deep cleavage of American Hustle. Can't blame her!
Here we are at the Golden Globes, the (even more) starstruck version of the Oscars that mixes in the TV categories as well. They also let people drink during the show, which makes for lots of drunk speeches and presentations! The Globes separate the main awards into Drama and Comedy-Musical, so they don't always work well as predictors of Oscars. They are useful to see who gives a good speech. Here are my predictions for the film awards. There are some tight races, so I can't wait to see who wins!
