golden globes recap

if you missed any of the magic last night, never fear!
i've got your shimmering highlights right here.
(part two is strictly fashion-related, and will be here soon.)
ricky gervais ran the show like a boss.
i love his humor, and think people take him way too seriously far too often. the globes are meant to be more laid back than the oscars; there is drinking and socializing going on, people!
lets lighten up a bit, shall we?

some notes:

christopher plummer 
"to my wife...whose bravery and beauty haunts me still"
oh. my. 
how lovely is that?!
laura dern wins for best actress in a tv comedy. 
she is so so soooooo good on enlightened
its uncomfortable and funny and honest. 
its good.
(she's also, apparently, a tad too much like her character...
 but i love the show. can't help it!)

DOWNTON wins!!!
i can't say it enough.
downton abbey is gorgeous, riveting, 
and oh so well-crafted all around. 

kate winslet wins best actress in a miniseries or tv movie. 
(and makes her first public appearance with new love nick rocknroll. yes, that's actually his real name. but don't feel too badly for the lad; his uncle is sir richard branson. 
so he's doing alright. sigh.)
oh, beautiful kate. 
love her. 
a bit safe on the dress, but lovely still. 

kelsey grammar wins best actor in a drama series.
and backstage drops the bomb that he and his new wife 
kayte walls
are expecting twins...!
in your face, crazypants!
all i can think is...
best hide all the sharp things.

oh, and yum.

how funny is jimmy fallon? i don't feel like adam fully appreciated his spot-on jagger impression.
so funny. 

i love you, i really do.
but your speech is a hot mess. 
and what exactly is happening with the fingerless glove?!
(the girls still just wanna have fun, though, wouldn't you say?
hello, cleaveland!)

michelle williams wins best actress in a motion picture comedy or musical for my week with marilyn.
that's funny. the film is neither a musical nor a comedy.
she gives a very sweet speech, thanking her daughter for her "bravery and exuberance", and for "sending [her] off to this job every day with a hug and a kiss." 

i see michelle sitting with her castmates... 
me: "what's busy wearing?"
dave: "what's a 'busy'?"
that's a busy. 

anyway,congrats, marilyn.
i can't wait to see the film. 
peter dinklage wins best supporting actor in a miniseries 
or tv movie! yeah!
he's brilliant in this role.
if you haven't seen game of thrones, you must. 
can't wait for season 2.
he also used the stage wisely; during his acceptance speech he asked viewers to google the name "martin henderson".  upon further research, it appears he is a fellow dwarf who was severely injured when he was recently "tossed" in new zealand. 
acts of this nature are not humorous, and i find it appalling things like this still happen. 
how noble of peter to thank the right people for his award, recognizing the honor, and use the platform for a higher purpose. 

paula patton.
aren't we just a bit much?
maybe she had four martinis too many, or maybe she is just that nice and excited
(honestly, i'm like this in real life, and i know it can be a tad overwhelming for people...)
she is gorgeous, though. wondering where her handsome husband was last night, however...

felicity & bill.
cutest couple ever!

thank you from rescuing us from the typical scripted drivel. 

jessica lange wins best supporting actress for AHS.
(jenny's probably having a fit over this one!)
she is totally gifted, and creepy on that show.
which i can't watch because it scares me.
a lot.

so thrilled for octavia spencer.
she looked beautiful, and won best supporting actress 
for the help
well deserved!!!

matt leblanc wins best actor in a comedy series for episodes.
salt and pepper these days.
still so adorable.

but helllooooooooo, bradley cooper. 
yes please.

sidney poitier presents.

when you get a standing O for just entering the room...
wow. a living icon.
still quite debonair at 84, no?
and of course, congratulations to the venerable mr. freeman, 
this year's recipient of the cecil b demille award.
(no, he's not just for voiceovers, people!)
what a legend.
and so gracious.

modern family wins for best tv series. 
the writing and talent on that show is just so good.
meryl, meryl, meryl.
my goodness, she can do no wrong.
i don't care if she is wearing something ridiculous, 
drank a zillion martinis, and forgot her glasses and her speech.
its meryl.
and i bow down to her. 
clearly i need to see the artist.
it won for best motion picture; comedy or musical category.
and that dog is adorable. 

and then there's gorgeous george.
so talented. so delicious.
and so funny! 
he wins for best actor in a drama film, and his movie wins for best drama film. 
he first comes onto the stage using a cane, making me wonder what had happened to the dear man...
turns out he was roasting brad pitt, who had recently been in a skiing accident.
must also see the descendants

well, that about wraps up the show...
fashion recap to follow!


  1. So, I was in the middle of church praying "Thank you God for my Molly who will show and tell everything I need to know about the show tonight" NEVER disappoint. I ADORE YOU! xoxo B

  2. gervais owned.

    paula patton was unbearable.

    meryl rules even in temple grandin's shirt.

  3. Clooney's date looked like she could be his daughter - I know he enjoys his 3-year rotations of 22-28 y.o. females, but for the first time I thought he looked silly. He's still hot though.

    Helen Mirren and Julianne Moore both looked so amazing. Lurve!

    I wanted to see more of Michael Fassbender. Loved Clooney's golfing/dick joke.

    What happened to Madonna's face? Her left side looked a little wonky.

  4. Paula Patton. how she got that role in Mission impossible is beyond me. She's the WORST ACTRESS EVER.
