    What qualifications do Tina and Amy have in relation to movies? Someone please fill me in. They are second-rate comediennes, and it showed.

    golden globes is not just for movies, it crosses all line of the business, they should be hosting all award showes

    Tina and Amy are both tv AND movie comediennes, they also both write and produce work and have risen to a very high level very quickly for one reason:

    They’re damn good and lots of people enjoy being entertained by them.

    Except for Stephen.

    @Stephen

    They were both nominated, so what qualifications do you have to be commenting if you were too lazy to even watch the awards?

    I loved them both. The snoozefest that is usually the Oscars could learn some things from the GGs. I thought they were hilarious without getting grating.

    Wow. Did Steven Spielberg not tip well? Why else would the Hollywood Foreign Press (i.e. waiters at the Palm) deny him useless trophies for a movie that’s not just important?

    But that’s the Golden Globes, where anything can happen and usually does because there are only like sixteen people eligible to vote. If Rick Santorum can win the Louisiana primary, Don Cheadle can beat Louis C.K. for Best Actor in a TV Comedy.

    Of course, how much credibility can an organization have when Best TV Comedy is presented by Jay Leno?

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were the best women hosts of the Golden Globes since Eydie Gorme. That set looked like the lobby of the old Dunes Hotel in Vegas. All that was missing was Sammy Davis Jr. being told he had to leave.

    The teleprompter malfunctioned while Salma Hayek and Paul Rudd were presenting. And they covered beautifully. Both just stood there frozen. You realize if it weren’t for writers, the whole three-hour show would be like that? Most actors can only ad lib “me” or “journey.”

    Case in point: In Kevin Costner’s acceptance speech he wanted to say how this ceremony helped “illuminate” movies that the public hasn’t seen and instead he said “eliminate.”

    If the Hollywood Foreign Press Association really wanted to make noise they would have let Mel Gibson be a presenter. I mean, there he was – in a room filled with alcohol and Jews!

    J-Lo looked smashing in her dress made entirely of doilies stitched together by some Brownie troop.

    Nicole Kidman must really be furious. Lena Dunham wins two awards for taking her clothes off while she pisses on a guy and doesn’t win even one.

    MAD MEN wasn’t even nominated for Best TV Drama. That’s what they get for killing off the English guy.

    Not only did NBC, the televising network, not win a single award, none of the four broadcast networks did.

    There’s only one screenplay award. They don’t distinguish between original and adaptations. But as Jon said, “What do you want? They have Sofia Vergara and Maggie Smith in the same category.”

    No one missed Ricky Gervais.

    They have a Best Foreign Film category. Considering who the voters are, shouldn’t any movie made in America be considered a foreign film?

    If their titles were THE BEST EXOTIC MIAMI HOTEL and SALMON FISHING IN SEATTLE would either of those pictures get any nominations?

    I was hoping Clinton would co-present with Clint Eastwood.

    What was with that handlebar mustache Bill Murray was sporting? Now that’s played Franklin Roosevelt is he looking to do Teddy?

    Typical Will Ferrell bit. Hilarious for the first thirty seconds, tedious for the next eleven minutes.

    Jodie Foster was smashed. Her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award (given to any actor whose heard of Cecil B. DeMille) was eloquently incoherent, yet honest and touching.

    Scariest moment of the night was watching Sylvester Stallone’s face melt.

    Cumberbatch got robbed! Robbed by a wooden tobacco store Indian. Costner put me to sleep. Holy god, he’s dull.

  8. Lucas says

    @Ken, you have too much time on your hands.
    @Stephen, Amy Pohler and Tina Fey are two of the funniest women alive.

    They killed it, I thought. The thing is: not only are they funny, and smart, they seem real and unaffected. Tons of good will behind them, despite the haters.
