Can you feel the energy in the air? Red carpet antics ahead. The Golden Globes are upon us.
Tonight: Oscar hopes boosted or disintegrating. Stars getting drunk worrying about the same. TV stars gawking at their superior movie counterparts. Felicity Huffman praying for a double win to suggest she's both. Weird table sharing for films that didn't get wide support in the nominations. Snarky comments on air (remember Meryl Streep's hilariously faux-icy "Congratulations, NATALIE" after her loss? Funny) Stars aping Renée Zellwegers 'stuck in the bathroom moment' from 2000 as if that joke never gets old (it's the Globe equivalent of the Oscar's infernal Sally Field mocking "you like me. you really like me" Poor Sally.) Ancient legends dragged on stage for our amusement --my favorite Globe moment ever? That'd be Liz Taylor's wobbly utter cluelessness presenting Best Picture to Gladiator with a crisis management assist from Dick Clark. Arms suddenly flailing to the sides with over-enthusiastic gleeful squeal "Glaaaaadeeator!"
my predictions again -so tempted to change them but whatevs. I'll let it be. I just wanna have fun tonight. Gabriel and Nick join me for the annual craziness. Or as Nick calls it "our SECOND favorite holiday of the year" the first being you-know-what...
Enjoy the show!
