Best something yea hah? whoa Kate Winslet shes crying shes going on and on and on and on nobodys even seen The Reader
Blah blah blah Bruce Springsteen commercial
I cant keep this up Ill lose my mind plus House is on USA
So Im back. They just gave Best Actor in a TV Series to Gabriel Byrne for something called In Treatment. They blew off Hugh Laurie for House and Jon Hamm for Mad Men. Byrne didnt even show up to collect his award.
I demand an investigation! Someone some ones were paid off! This is the 1982 Pia Zadora debacle all over again!
Back to House
Heath Ledger wins again Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan gives another dignified acceptance speech more blah blah blah something about John Adams
Simon Beaufoy wins the Best Screenplay award for Slumdog Millionaire. Excellent. Well done.
Oh, yes, a weepy British girl won a few minutes ago for Happy-Go-Lucky, another film no one saw.
Alec Baldwin wins again for his role in 30 Rock. I must confess a weakness for his performance in that show. Take him out, and you have little left.
I believe Ralph Fiennes is nominated in 23 categories, including Best Resemblance to a Ralph Fiennes Type Performance.
Paul Giamatti wins for John Adams. I dont know who he played Small consolation for his not getting an Oscar nomination for American Splendor. One may have nothing to do with the other, but I suffer from an acute case of diachronic peripatesis. (OK, I made that part up.)
Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical: 30 Rock. Big surprise. Tracy Morgan is giving the acceptance speech. He should never be permitted to do that again. He sounds like ants are nibbling at his brain.
Pierce Brosnan cant believe hed ever appear in a movie based on ABBA songs one in which hed sing. You and me both
Spazzed out. Missed something who knows Best Unified Field Theory, maybe
Tina Fey wins something again. Didnt she just win an Emmy a few months ago? Those with much will be given more. As a kid, I had all the Hollywood Foreign Press action figures. So did I. Strange.
Cecille B. DeMille Award is coming up. It will be given to Steven Spielberg, who has been celebrated enough. Now is a good time to grab a snack. Where did I put my wurst-on-a-stick jerky pops
Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman give the Best Director of a Motion Picture award to Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire. Haroo. This bodes well for a Best Non Comedy or a Musical Film award.
Colin Farrell is now jabbering on about winning Best Comic Actor in a Dramatic Role or some such thing for a movie about Belgium, which itself is mildly amusing.
Sasha Baron Cohen is making several bad jokes. Which comes with being Sasha Baron Cohen. Anyway, Best Comedy or Musical (cant they tell?) goes to Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Of course, Woody Allen is not there to accept, but his sister, Letty Aronson, a producer on the film, is.
Kate Winslet just won again for something. (I fell asleep briefly and missed the category.) Best Actress, yes? Revolutionary Road? Did anyone see that? Was the film really even made? She wont stop blubbering. Its a Golden Globe, for heavens sake! By Thursday no one will even remember the show was even on!
Mad Men wins Best Show on AMC. I may be mistaken.
There are three or four more categories. I cant stay awake long enough to care. Or I dont care enough to stay awake for long. Im sure theyll publish the rest of the results on the Interweb tomorrow. Good night. Drive safely.
Wait. Mickey Rourke just won for Diner. That cant be right
Just as I predicted: Slumdog Millionaire has won Best Serious Motion Picture. Well deserved.
Is that it? Can I go now? Ach remind me never to do this again. Its both depressing and exhausting. I can always go to the average American church for that
Just saw Slumdog Millionaire this afternoon. Loved it. Theater was surprisingly full.
Kate Winslet babbled on, with baited breath, and on the verge of tears, like a true Hollywood idiot.
You can't mention Pia Zadora and not expect this.
Mickey Rourke won for “The Wrestler.” He deserved it. Great performance. I hope he wins the best actor Oscar.
Good acceptance speech from Rourke. He got his director to give him the finger.
“Heath Ledger wins again Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan gives another dignified acceptance speech more blah blah blah something about John Adams ”
Christopher Nolan directed the John Adams TV Series based on David McCullough’s book.
Ohhhh...so that’s why the screen went black for a few moments during Mickey’s speech.
Nice turn of events for Slumdog. That film opened in only ten theaters across the whole country when it first hit the theaters, IIRC...
Slumdog, Gran Tornio, and The Wrestler are all 4 star films...not 5 star...those are reserved for The Passion of the Christ, Apocalypto, Goodfellas, Braveheart, and A Christmas Story ;)
I didn’t watch all of the GGs while channel surfing, but I did happen to catch TWO acceptance speeches by Kate Winslet — and she was blubbering like an absolute idiot both times. I kept thinking she was doing a parody of some of the all-time worst acceptance speeches at the Oscars, such as those by Sally Field (”you like me..... you LIKE me....”) and Gwyneth Paltrow blubbering for her mummy..... to mention just the two worst I happen to have seen, when I really don’t watch any of these award shows most years.
But Kate W. finished her 2nd speech (that I saw) without any hint that these were parodies, so I guess that she really is such a simpering snivelling idiot, too. Just like Sally and Gwyneth...... good heavens, are these clowns actually respected by anyone?
How appropriate, for they are surely golden.
