LIVE BLOGGING the 2013 Golden Globes!

12 01 2014

11:00 P.M.  I’m fine with any awards show where “American Hustle” leads the awards tally with 3 trophies.  2 for “Dallas Buyers Club.”  Every other movie just had one.

10:58 P.M.  So “12 Years a Slave” wins Best Picture and nothing else?  Huh?  Surely it will add Best Adapted Screenplay and a technical award or two at the Oscars (if it can fend off “American Hustle”).  Glad Steve McQueen got to give the speech!

10:57 P.M.  BEST PICTURE (DRAMA): “12 YEARS A SLAVE”

10:51 P.M.  Kicking myself for not having seen “Dallas Buyers Club.”  McConaughey’s acceptance speeches are good.  Definitely going to be this year’s entertainment on the circuit.

10:49 P.M.  BEST ACTOR (DRAMA): MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY, “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB”

10:47 P.M.  That’s right, a standing ovation.  Here’s to Cate Blanchett.

10:46 P.M.  BEST ACTRESS (DRAMA): CATE BLANCHETT, BLUE JASMINE

10:45 P.M.  My gosh, Leo.  How many acceptance speeches do you want?

10:40 P.M.  I’m so much more interested in what Megan Ellison, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper are whispering than the producer … but SO elated about this win!

10:38 P.M.  BEST PICTURE (MUSICAL/COMEDY): “AMERICAN HUSTLE”

10:35 P.M.  Niki Lauda, the Bill Clinton cameo of the year.

10:28 P.M.  Nice tribute to all the “comedians” in the category by DiCaprio.  Glad this isn’t my Oscar ballot because it would be in shambles…

10:27 P.M.  BEST ACTOR (MUSICAL/COMEDY): LEONARDO DICAPRIO, “THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

10:22 P.M. Fantastic Michael Bay dig, Tina! Also, looks like I need to start watching “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

10:19 P.M. How is “12 Years a Slave” 0/5 so far?!

10:17 P.M. BEST DIRECTOR: ALFONSO CUARÓN, “GRAVITY”

10:10 P.M. Hearing Diane Keaton sing was magical. Her bleep, not so much…

10:06 P.M. This is an epic montage. I want it – no, I need it.

10:03 P.M. Go Woody Allen!

9:56 P.M. What was Amy Poehler’s bigger win of the night, the Golden Globe or the kiss from Bono? So glad to see her take home the trophy! Another great TV pick for the HFPA.

9:52 P.M. BEST ANIMATED FEATURE – “FROZEN

9:43 P.M. Loving all the Julia Louis-Dreyfus attention tonight.

9:41 P.M. BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM – “THE GREAT BEAUTY”

9:37 P.M. “Muppets Most Wanted” – bravo. Best commercial I’ve seen in a long time.

9:35 P.M. Best Actor Andy Samberg, who woulda thunk it?

9:30 P.M. Must. See. “Her.” And Spike Jonze is adorable. “Hold on, I just started!”

9:29 P.M. BEST SCREENPLAY – “HER”

9:28 P.M. Digging the shoes-off and martini-in-hand for Emma Thompson.

9:22 P.M. So I guess now I need to see “Dallas Buyers Club,” but all this waxing talk is … interesting. Although, hey, I finally got one of my picks right!

9:21 P.M. BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR – JARED LETO, “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB”

9:18 P.M. Between Bryan Cranston and Robin Wright, really digging the HFPA’s television selections this year.

9:16 P.M. Amy Poehler is probably the only person in the world that can get that close to Harvey Weinstein…

9:09 P.M. Loving all the “American Hustle” love, HFPA! What a beautiful speech by Amy Adams. I’m now 0/4 but really happy about at least 2 of those.

Amy Adams

9:08 P.M. BEST ACTRESS (MUSICAL/COMEDY) – AMY ADAMS, “AMERICAN HUSTLE”

9:04 P.M. What is with all these awkward pauses before the speeches start?

8:55 P.M. Diddy Dirty Money is druuuuuuunk. I really shouldn’t have been surprised to see U2 win. I’m now 0/3 tonight, whoops.

8:53 P.M. BEST ORIGINAL SONG – ORDINARY LOVE, “MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM”

8:52 P.M. Alex Ebert’s hair tonight tops Joaquin Phoenix’s. Definitely didn’t see this win coming.

8:50 P.M. BEST ORIGINAL SCORE – “ALL IS LOST”

8:48 P.M. Proud to have once walked a red carpet and attended a screening with the real Philomena Lee!

IMG_1043

8:43 P.M. Aww, Aaron Paul crying in the background!

8:39 P.M. Finally, Bryan Cranston wins for “Breaking Bad!”

8:36 P.M. Teleprompter fail. Would have been great if Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie had pretended to be Aaron Eckhart and Paula Patton.

8:27 P.M. Go Peggy! Also, with the win for “Behind the Candelabra,” one has to wonder how it would have fared in the Oscar race had it been released in theaters.

8:18 P.M. Jacqueline Bisset totally dominates the play-off music, even after a Melissa Leo-esque bleep out.

8:13 P.M. So will Jennifer Lawrence make it back-to-back Oscar wins? SAG will tell us soon enough.

1526737_407398732727973_2007959304_n

8:11 P.M. Two in a row for J.Law. She is unstoppable.

JLaw AH

8:10 P.M. BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS – JENNIFER LAWRENCE, “AMERICAN HUSTLE”

8:08 P.M. I can’t even keep up with all the brilliant Tina Fey and Amy Poehler jokes. I’m dying.

8:05 P.M. Julia Louis-Dreyfus turning down Reese Witherspoon’s selfie just made my day.

8:03 P.M. Matt Damon = “basically a garbage person.”

Elysium

8:01 P.M. Awkward reference to the non-nominated “The Butler.”

7:53 P.M. Final predictions, ahh!

Best Picture – Drama

Will win: “12 Years a Slave”
Could win: “Gravity”
Should win: “Philomena”

Again, thinking “12 Years a Slave” runs the board. But it could go to “Gravity.”

Best Picture – Musical/Comedy

Will win: “American Hustle”
Could win: “Nebraska”
Should win: “American Hustle”

I feel fairly certain that nomination leader “American Hustle” will win this one easily. But in what might be the most competitive year in this category ever, it’s anyone’s game.

7:49 P.M. Getting close to showtime, folks!

Best Director

Will win: Steve McQueen, “12 Years a Slave”
Could win: Alfonso Cuarón, “Gravity”
Should win: David O. Russell, “American Hustle”

Could go either way between McQueen and Cuarón. Globes went James Cameron in 2009 for “Avatar,” so perhaps they’ll show a similar proclivity for sci-fi. But I stick with the more traditional pick.

Best Screenplay

Will win: “American Hustle”
Could win: “Her”
Should win: “American Hustle”

No clue here. I think “American Hustle,” “Her,” and “12 Years a Slave” are all possible. Opting for the first of the three just on a hunch.

7:43 P.M. Now, their dramatic counterparts.

Best Actor – Drama

Will win: Matthew McConaughey, “Dallas Buyers Club”
Could win: Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave”
Should win: Robert Redford, “All Is Lost”

Have a gut feeling the Globes are loving the McConaughey redemption vibe. But Ejiofor is in the more beloved film, so who really knows what will happen?

Best Actress – Drama

Will win: Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine
Could win: Sandra Bullock, “Gravity”
Should win: Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine

Probably the only no-brainer of the evening. Blanchett runs away with it.

7:38 P.M. Comedy predictions time!

Best Actor – Comedy

Will win: Christian Bale, “American Hustle”
Could win: Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Wolf of Wall Street
Should win: Oscar Isaac, “Inside Llewyn Davis”

5 leading men from 5 Best Picture nominees – honestly, all have their claim. I’m sticking with Bale for the likely Best Picture champion, but DiCaprio could easily take this. The Globes love him.

Best Actress – Comedy

Will win: Meryl Streep, “August: Osage County”
Could win: Amy Adams, “American Hustle”
Should win: Amy Adams, “American Hustle”

Maybe Adams takes it for the more beloved film, but Meryl has eight Golden Globes. They’re kind of into her.

7:33 P.M. Jessica Chastain channeling “Black Swan” tonight … picture to come later.

7:31 P.M. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler rock! Now you might actually care about these predictions…

Best Supporting Actor

Will win: Jared Leto, “Dallas Buyers Club”
Could win: Michael Fassbender, “12 Years a Slave”
Should win: Michael Fassbender, “12 Years a Slave”

Haven’t seen “Dallas Buyers Club” (I know, that’s bad) but Leto has been collecting nearly every prize so far. Can’t imagine he’s better than the demented Fassbender, though.

Best Supporting Actress

Will win: Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years a Slave”
Could win: Jennifer Lawrence, “American Hustle”
Should win: Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years a Slave”

While she might lack the name recognition, I think Nyong’o’s incredible performance will speak for itself.

7:26 P.M. And some more predictions! Cate Blanchett has just arrived, and I thought she looked great … then they panned down on her dress.

Cate

Best Original Song

Will win: Let It Go, “Frozen
Could win: Please Mr. Kennedy, “Inside Llewyn Davis”
Should win: Please Mr. Kennedy, “Inside Llewyn Davis”

A typical Disney tune should eke out a victory over some lesser-known contenders.

Best Original Score

Will win: “12 Years a Slave”
Could win: “Gravity”
Should win: “12 Years a Slave”

Giving the edge to better-known composer Zimmer in a race likely between the two dramatic Best Picture heavyweights.

7:21 P.M. Ok, first predictions.

Best Foreign Film

Will win: “Blue is the Warmest Color”
Could win: “The Hunt
Should win: “The Past”

Only chance for this film to shine. So I’m thinking it will.

Best Animated Film

Will win: Frozen
Could win: Monsters UniversityDespicable Me 2
Should win: Monsters University n/a

One of the weaker years for this category, but box office smash “Frozen” probably has the upper hand here. [UPDATED: So “Monsters University” wasn’t even nominated…]

7:15 P.M. JENNIFER LAWRENCE SIGHTING!

JLAW

7:12 P.M. Team “American Hustle” tonight. Go, fight, win!

Nail polish

7:11 P.M. Time to start the annual live blog!
