Morning! Another Golden Globes Award Show has been marked in the record books. A few surprises such as Argo and Ben Affleck winning Best Picture and Best Director upsetting the expected winners of either Lincoln or Les Miz. Now take that Academy Awards. Ben also won as Best Director at the Critics Choice Awards a couple of days back. Homeland on Showtime, ending the reign of Breaking Bad and Mad Men as Best Television Series, Drama. As well as Claire Danes and Damien Lewis winning for Best Actor and Actress in a Television Series, Drama. Former President Bill Clinton made a surprise appearance to a standing ovation. To this day, he is my favorite President. Olympic Gold Medalist, Gabby Douglas was looking rather stylish on the red carpet.
But the most buzzed about part of the evening was Jodie Foster’s rambling, sometimes incoherent, yet poignant acceptance speech for The Cecile B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement. Twitter, Facebook and all across every social media site known to humankind, was commenting and dissecting its meaning. She kinda, sorta, but not really “came out” or did she? No one is really quite sure on that one. In either case, her sexual orientation is one of the most well-known, best kept secrets in Hollywood, next! She also went into a diatribe about privacy, which by that time, we were all convinced the champagne was really doing most of the talking.
I also must give some love to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler…they were really funny and entertaining. They kept that show moving and it was quite an improvement over Ricky Gervais.
That’s it for now, next stop The Oscars!
