Live Blogging the 2012 Golden Globes!

13 01 2013

10:00 P.M.  For those of you keeping track at home, “Les Misérables” ruled the Golden Globes tonight with 3 wins!  “Django Unchained” and “Argo” also won two trophies.  “Amour,” “Brave,” “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Skyfall,” and “Zero Dark Thirty” each won a single award.

10:00 P.M.  HFPA awkwardly and unintentionally flips the bird to AMPAS tonight…

9:58 P.M.  BEST PICTURE – DRAMA: “ARGO

ARGO

9:52 P.M.  Unexpectedly humorous speech from Day-Lewis.  Although I laughed much harder at how most of the back of the room gave him a standing ovation … and NO ONE up front did.  Awkward…

9:50 P.M. BEST ACTOR – DRAMA: DANIEL DAY-LEWIS, “LINCOLN

Lincoln

9:50 P.M.  What a beautiful speech, Chastain looked truly humbled and honored.  To the Oscars we go, hopefully!  (Hey HFPA, didn’t appreciate your shot of the audience where we could see you all flashing “WRAP UP.”)

9:48 P.M. BEST ACTRESS – DRAMA: JESSICA CHASTAIN, “ZERO DARK THIRTY

Zero Dark Thirty

9:41 P.M.  Adorable Anne Hathaway stealing the microphone quickly to do a few more thanks and then tightly hugging Amanda Seyfried.

9:40 P.M. BEST PICTURE – MUSICAL/COMEDY: LES MISERABLES

Les Miserables (2)

9:39 P.M.  Jeremy Renner bleeped…

9:34 P.M.  What a charming acceptance speech, and so much love for his wife!  Maybe he can beat Daniel Day-Lewis?!

9:32 P.M.  BEST ACTOR – MUSICAL/COMEDY: HUGH JACKMAN, “LES MISERABLES

Les Miserables

9:22 P.M.  They talked about actors, and then the category was Best TV Series – Musical/Comedy?  At least it was “Girls!”

9:18 P.M.  Take that, Academy!  Standing ovation for snubbed Ben Affleck!

9:18 P.M. BEST DIRECTOR: BEN AFFLECK, “ARGO

Argo

9:11 P.M.  What on earth did Jodie Foster just say?  Seriously, my TV audio went out in what I assume was a bleep.

9:04 P.M.  OK, people, time for you to go watch “The Beaver.”  It has Mel Gibson, sure, but it also has Jennifer Lawrence!

The Beaver

8:59 P.M.  “Taylor Swift, stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son!” – Tina Fey, who needs to be on this telecast far more

8:53 P.M.  Lena Dunham may have won the Golden Globe, but Tina Fey got to wait with J.Lo and Amy Poehler got awfully close to George Clooney.  It’s debatable who the overall winner really was tonight.

8:51 P.M.  Hooray for Lena – NOT Lisa, Aziz – Dunham!  Go watch “Tiny Furniture!”

8:50 P.M.  Aziz Ansari being carried by Jason Bateman … fantastic.

8:47 P.M.  BEST ANIMATED FILM: “BRAVE

Brave

8:46 P.M.  What on earth did that introduction have to do with Best Animated Film?

8:45 P.M.  Goodness gracious, Sacha Baron Cohen is drunk…

8:39 P.M.  4 Golden Globes for Claire Danes in her career.  She’s halfway to Meryl Streep!

8:35 P.M.  BEST FOREIGN FILM: “AMOUR

Amour

8:27 P.M.  “Best Picture nominee ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen‘” just sounds so wrong.

8:25 P.M.  Really, Golden Globes?  Tarantino for screenplay?  Not OK with that. “Inglourious Basterds” blows “Django Unchained” out of the water.  And the speech was a total MESS.  Someone was overserved…

8:23 P.M. BEST SCREENPLAY: QUENTIN TARANTINO, “DJANGO UNCHAINED

Django

8:18 P.M.  Give us more time with Anne Hathaway’s acceptance speech – we love her!

8:15 P.M. BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: ANNE HATHAWAY, “LES MISERABLES

Anne Hathaway

8:07 P.M.  Yes, JLaw, to answer the question you were so desperately trying to ask during that speech, OF COURSE we can be best friends!

8:07 P.M.  “Does this say ‘I beat Meryl?'” – Jennifer Lawrence

8:06 P.M.  BEST ACTRESS – MUSICAL/COMEDY: JENNIFER LAWRENCE, “SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK

Jennifer Lawrence

8:04 P.M.  The sad thing is, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig are saying what a lot of Americans are to their television sets right now.  Wondering what this “Silver Linings Playbook” thing is and cursing them for not nominating “The Avengers.”

8:02 P.M.  Nice abs, Kristen Wiig.

7:59 P.M.  Clinton introducing “Lincoln.”  Oscar for Best Picture is now in the bag, in case it wasn’t already.

7:58 P.M.  Really, Bill Clinton?!  What?!

7:55 P.M.  Tina Fey and Amy Poehler going and impersonating the absent celebrities is PRICELESS.

7:49 P.M.  Looks like we need more Grammy-winners to come freshen up film awards.

7:48 P.M. BEST ORIGINAL SONG: SKYFALL, “SKYFALL

Skyfall

7:45 P.M. BEST ORIGINAL SCORE: MYCHAEL DANNA, “LIFE OF PI

Life of Pi

7:42 P.M.  Woah, real Tony Mendez!

Argo

7:36 P.M.  Awkward teleprompter flub with Salma Hayek and Paul Rudd … hooray for “Homeland!”  Don’t understand why they present Best TV Series – Drama before Best Actress in a TV Drama?!

7:33 P.M.  Wow, now “Homeland” is set to dominate the Golden Globes too after Emmys domination.  Weird not to hear Damian Lewis speak in his gruff American accent!

7:32 P.M.  Didn’t get to see much from the red carpet, but from what I can tell … Jessica Chastain wins.  Just as she did at the Oscars last year.  Ehh, didn’t really get to look closely enough.  She’s gorgeous, sure, but the dress wasn’t that great.

Jessica Chastain

7:30 P.M.  “Call Me Maybe” needs to be left in 2012, HFPA lady.

7:23 P.M.  Don’t sing again, Catherine Zeta-Jones, unless it’s “Chicago.”  Thanks.  That line of “Do You Hear The People Sing?” was awful.

7:21 P.M.  If “Game Change” had been released in theaters, Julianne Moore would be in contention for Best Actress.  Think about it…

7:18 P.M. Hooray for “Game Change!”   One of the better movies I saw this year in any format!

7:12 P.M.  C’mon, Professor McGonagall.  It’s one thing not to do press for yourself – but not showing up to receive the inevitable award?!

7:10 P.M.  Please, Academy, you’ve already awarded Christoph Waltz for literally the same performance.  And oh, here goes Waltz again with the poetic metaphors in his speeches.

7:10 P.M. BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: CHRISTOPH WALTZ, “DJANGO UNCHAINED

Django

7:08 P.M.  “This 70th anniversary celebration.”  OK.  Glad Tina and Amy mentioned that!

7:03 P.M.  “When it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent 3 years married to James Cameron.” – Amy Poehler, much to the amusement of Jessica Chastain (who was DYING laughing)

7:02 P.M.  Already loving the Tina and amy combo.  Same humor, just with less bite!

6:56 P.M.  About time to start … sad I missed so much of the red carpet though.  It just doesn’t feel the same.  Won’t be making this mistake for the Oscars.

6:45 P.M.  Wow, that was fast!  Here are the heavy-hitters!

Best Screenplay

Hard with the mixed adapted/original category, but I still say Kushner’s script for “Lincoln” prevails because it’s the most agreeable and unilaterally praised of the year.

DDL

Best Director

Golden Globes love older, respected directors, so Spielberg takes it.  Maybe an Ang Lee spoiler as a victory for world cinema, but I doubt that happens.

Spielberg

Best Picture – Musical/Comedy

The Golden Globes love a flashy musical, usually more than the Academy.  While the quirky comedy may do better at the Oscars, I think tonight is a night of “Les Misérables” domination.

Les Mis

Best Picture – Drama

Though the Critics Choice went “Argo,” I think the HFPA will go weak at the knees for baity “Lincoln.”  Maybe they choose “Life of Pi,” though, like they chose “Avatar” in 2009.

GG BP Drama

6:40 P.M.  Quickly, quickly, more predictions!

Best Supporting Actress

Duh.

Les Miserables

Best Supporting Actor

Can’t make a compelling case for Hoffman or Arkin, and vote splitting might take out the men of “Django Unchained.”  So I guess it’s Tommy Lee Jones.

TLJ

Best Actress – Musical/Comedy

Probably the biggest no-brainer of the night if for no other reason than Lawrence has zero competition.

Silver Linings Playbook

Best Actor – Musical/Comedy

I give the edge to the song-and-dance man Jackman because the musical men usually come out on top.

Les Miserables

Best Actress – Drama

  • Will win: Jessica Chastain, “Zero Dark Thirty
  • Could win: Naomi Watts, “The Impossible”

With no Riva, Wallis, or Lawrence, I think Chastain glides over the competition.

Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty

Best Actor – Drama

  • Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln
  • Could win: Joaquin Phoenix, “The Master

Again, duh.

Lincoln

6:30 P.M. Argh, was intending to update from my phone but that didn’t work.  Sorry.  Here are some predictions:

Best Score

Perennial favorite John Williams wins over a field with no one else established as a worthy winner.

Best Song

It’s Adele, and it’s a great Bond theme.  Unless they really love “Les Misérables,” this is the one category I think it won’t take.

Best Foreign Film

  • Will win: “Amour
  • Could win: “The Intouchables”

The Globes usually pick the artsiest of the bunch, but never count out the possibility of them picking a crowd-pleaser.

Best Animated Film

HFPA loves Pixar, and “Wreck-It Ralph” feels like the kind of movie that studio used to make regularly.  So I’m going out on a limb and guessing it wins.

4:30 P.M.  Hopefully we will be treated to this kind of fantastic chemistry and humor in just a few hours.

12:15 P.M.  Before I forget, let me plug “Parks & Recreation.”  Because Amy Poehler’s show is the funniest thing on (network) television, and it needs to be seen by more people.  It’s a brilliantly subversive, but never preachy or cloying, political commentary – and not to mention, it has great characters and lines.  I’d be willing to say it’s better than “The Office” in its prime.  Just check out this clip from a few weeks ago and try not to laugh, even if you don’t know Poehler’s character Leslie Knope.

12:00 P.M.  Keep checking back for more updates!

Taylor Swift looked pissed over the fact that Adele won. I bet she’ll write a song about it. Like those songs she wrote about every guy she’s been with. What a bitch.

Well, she can cry into Harry Styles’ shoulder. Oh wait, they are already done…
