"American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave" Won The Two Biggest Golden Globes Last Night
The "Golden Globes" . . . a.k.a. the Oscars' drunk half-cousin . . . went down last night. Here's what happened:
"American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave" won Best Comedy or Musical and Best Drama, respectively. AMY ADAMS and JENNIFER LAWRENCE both won for "American Hustle", too.
"Gravity" garnered a Best Director win for ALFONSO CUARON.
Other winners included CATE BLANCHETT for "Blue Jasmine" and LEONARDO DICAPRIO for "The Wolf of Wall Street". And both MATTHEW MCONAUGHEY and JARED LETO won for "Dallas Buyers Club".
On the TV side, "Breaking Bad" won Best TV Drama, and BRYAN CRANSTON won Best Actor in a Drama for it.
Surprisingly, ANDY SAMBERG'S show "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" won Best TV Comedy, and Andy won Best Actor in a Comedy.
The Golden Globes: All the Interesting Stuff
The "Golden Globes" are basically the Oscars with more alcohol and fewer inhibitions . . . so the actual award presentations are usually the LEAST interesting things that happen. Here's the best of everything else . . .
Hosts AMY POEHLER and TINA FEY were decent. They some great lines, including these:
"Meryl Streep, so briliant in 'August Osage County', proving that there are still great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60."
"'Gravity' is nominated for best film. It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age."
"And now, like a supermodel's vagina, let's all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio." (There was actually a glitch in the feed after this joke, like maybe the producers tried to cut it out. If so, I'm glad they failed.)
JACQUELINE BISSET had trouble finding the right words when she accepted for Best Supporting Performance in a Series, Miniseries, or Television Film. She seemed pretty emotional and she went on FOREVER.
She may have been HAMMERED, but it seemed like she was just genuinely surprised and touched.
Here's who WAS drunk, though: EMMA THOMPSON. She even brought her martini glass onstage with her to present an award . . . and she threw her shoes over her shoulder.
One of the night's most awkward moments was when DIDDY hugged BONO. It looked like he was going in for a KISS, but Bono pulled away. (Here's a Vine.)
JIM CARREY delivered the best BURN, when he roasted SHIA LABEOUF while presenting a comedy award. He said, quote, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard. I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise."
At one point while introducing EMMA STONE, Amy Poehler said that Emma had told her backstage that she "isn't looking for new friends." Was THAT an insult, or just a self-deprecating joke by Amy?
Possibly the best moment of the night happened on the red carpet . . . and not surprisingly it involved JENNIFER LAWRENCE.
She Photobombed TAYLOR SWIFT, and since EVERYTHING JENNIFER LAWRENCE DOES IS ADORABLE, it was a delightful moment. (Check out a picture AND video here
One last note: During its pre-Golden Globe coverage, the E! Network was running little "Fun Facts" about various celebrities. And here's the "FUN Fact" they ran about MICHAEL J. FOX:
"Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1991."
