Anyways, that is how I felt watching 97% of the acceptance speeches last night on the Golden Globes. Why are people so bad at acceptance speeches! I mean, I get it, it's a big deal, you didn't expect to win, you're excited, you don't want to forget anyone, blah, blah, blah....BUT instead of trying to remember each and every person you worked with on the set, and every distant relative that has helped you along the way, why not keep it short and sweet like Adele did. Something along the lines of, thanks to everyone in my life that has made this moment come true. Boom, done. Accepted.
Also, don't even get me started on Jodie Foster.... UGH that was painful. At one point Brad looked over at me and asked why I was literally hiding behind the pillow. Seriously though, someone should have started the get your ass of the stage music on her, I don't care if it was her moment. She did the opposite of shine.
Overall, I thought Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a solid job hosting, there were definitely some funny moments. I think the best line of the night was the unscripted moment when Tina comment on Girls star and winner Yeah - I got you through middle school - FANTASTIC!" as she takes a drink.
There is that fine line when it comes to being funny and just plain dumb when you present an award or host a show like this and Tommy Lee Jones was not impressed with any of it, especially Will Farrell and Kristen Wiig: I died when they showed him in the audience. I am glad the rest of the internet picked up on it too.
Tommy Lee Jones is not amused.
When it came to fashion there were a few loves and a few hates, but over all I thought it was a fairly tame evening in the world of red carpet affairs.
These were my top misses:
I don't get this look. Why does the dress end at your ankles awkwardly. Why do the sleeves cut off like an 8th grade boy's gym shirt? Also, might want to try smiling, Kerri.
We know, we know, JLo, you have a nice backside. For God's sake though, quit drawing even more attention to it.
Haley, I get it. You've got nicer legs at age 46 then I do at 24, but seriously. You look a little slutty for my taste. Let's tone it down a bit shall we?
And a few of my favs:
Jessica Alba, you're pretty and married to JT. I think you should only get to be one or the other, but not both. It's not fair to the rest of us.
Update: She is not the Jessica that married JT. My apologies, to Jessica Biel. (Thanks, Josh for the correction).
Obviously this is what they wore during the days of Downton Abbey.
Big fan of Jennifer Westfeldt's dress... or maybe her husband...
After 3 hours of the Golden Globes I wondered why I put myself through it. I do this every time after an awards show, which is why I usually only make it through the first half an hour. More often than not I get bored and then just check out the pretty dresses online the next day, which is probably what I will end up doing for the Oscars.
Cheers to awards shows!
