I thought the Golden Globes awards were fascinating last night. Not fascinating enough to keep me awake during the entire program, mind you, but it would take a miracle to keep me conscious that long. Still, here are several things that I found interesting.
Mel Gibson: I mean, he’s come under some pretty serious scrutiny lately, but he must have an amazing support team because Robert Downey Jr. and Jody Foster seemed to be really pulling hard for him.
And speaking of Jody Foster: who knew she was gay? Probably most of the world. Still, I was surprised. She seemed a little incoherent to me, but apparently she’s 50 and we’re all a little loony at this age. And almost none of us look that good when we hit the half century mark.
How about Ben Affleck? He was blackballed by Hollywood? Why? When? How? And who saw his Argo movie? Me, I loved it, but I like a lot of his work. I thought he seemed disingenuous and utterly appealing as he accepted his award for best director.
Jennifer Lawrence (from Hunger Games and Silver Linings right?) was beautiful and breathless. Why is it always so charming when those mega stars lose their composure? And is it allowed to say, “I beat Meryl Streep’ when you beat Meryl Streep?
President Clinton announcing the Lincoln nominee??? He was declared by some to be ‘the biggest celeb of the night.’ When did Bill become everyone’s darling? I’m pretty sure I remember a time when about half the population hated him.
But let’s get down to brass tacks, shall we? I mean, we all know the Globes are all about the gowns so here are a few goodies:
Unflattering dress. (Notice expression of woman in background.)
Hmmm, but who cares cuz it’s Halle and she could make a banana peel look chic.
So those are my worthless opinions. How about you? Any incite on the Globes?
