Was that the George Clooney one? It was good but I wouldn't say it was best-picture good. Who were the other nominees?
I cant even recall the others, so I guess Clooneys was the best of the bunch.I am not a fan of his.
Poor Meryl , she's so class\y I love Helen Mirren as well
Fonda looks good, thought Angelina looked way too thin, her dress was way too tight and it was ugly fugly
I think Ricky had been told to tone it down, dang! it was a bit of a snorefest for me.I love how Madonna now has a quasi english accent, Madge as had some major work done blech
BTW, did anyone else notice that Piper Perabo's dress was see-thru? (The skirt, that is)
And like everyone else, I'd love to see more color, and I sometimes wonder just what some of the women were thinking. But I'm probably not the best judge...after all, I spend all day in either jeans or sweats ;-)
I was glad to read these posts about The Descendents. I had heard such great things about it but I wasn't impressed at all. Just sort of hum-drum to me. George was ok in it but it wasn't a difficult role to play. I've seen him do others where he's much more of a standout. Basically, I think George is just pretty and nice to see on the big screen but nothing great. Nor bad either.
Sometimes I think these actors/actresses win awards because it's their "time." I felt that way about Halle Berry also.
But then maybe I'm just cynical about these celebs.
Wish Ricky had really given to them like he did last time. I prefer him pointing out the obvious, which all the actors don't like anyone saying, even though we all think it.
I think Fassbender probably gave the best performance of the year, at least out of the men in that category. It's just not the type of role that gets votes. I think the voters often go for performances in movies that make them feel good OR to actors for a body of work. Hence, Sandra Bullock, Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman (let's be honest, he deserves an Oscar, but not for that movie), Paul Newman for The Color of Money and so many others. Heck, put Julia Roberts on that list too. I thought Annette Bening didn't deserve all the nominations for The Kids Are Alright last year. She was good, but Julianne Moore gave the performance in that movie. Bening didn't deserve the GG last year - hands down, it should have gone to Emma Stone.
Conclusion? It's all a popularity contest! It's like high school with more expensive clothes.
I was happy about Idris Elba, Peter Dinklage, Downton Abbey, Christopher Plummer and the wins for Homeland (although I was hoping it would take both lead acting categories and Game of Thrones would win for best drama). I'm also thrilled that Octavia Spencer is getting some success. I've been a fan for a while and I'm so happy she's been "discovered!" Kelsey Grammer was a head-scratcher, for sure.
ETA: You just know Kris Jenner is going to be all whiny in the media about Ricky Gervais picking on her daughter. :ohno
Charlize Theron looked stunning and gets the best dressed award from me.
I would love to know what Ricki and Meryl said during their several second censor. I loved what Meryl wore and I usually don't. She goes for modest and last night she did not look dumpy.
I "liked" every post that commented on Brad and Angie. Enough, they are just not all that! I am sick to death of them and her dress was terrible.
Ricki had very little airtime. His hosting job must have been the easiest in the history of award show hosts. Probably intentional.
It appeared that Natalie and Angie wore the same designer. The swipe of darker color at the top was the same.
Critical, loved your comment, 'dragged throught the hedge hair!' Hysterical. That is the look now and it is difficult for older actors to pull that off. They just look haggard.
Madonna. She was not prepared, arrogant as always and her dress was terrible.
Very few of them who presented or accepted were witty or interesting. George Clooney was the exception, as he always is. Loved his acceptance speech. I wish they would make a rule that no one is allowed to thank anyone. They are all had the best cast and crew EVER and are grateful for all who particiapted in the movie; make that a given. It makes the show drag and viewers don't know most of those mentioned anyway. Those in the audience know who worked on the movie and don't need to hear a list. :ohno
I like the Golden Globes better than the Oscars because of the table seating and the shots of the actors talking amongest themselves. It is more relaxed.
Love Jody Foster and her boys are adorable. They look just like her, as someone already noted. I also loved her hair!
Kelly Osborne's hair is unfortunate but her love of the edgy and odd drives her train. I don't expect her to have a normal color for a very long time. When she moves on from the blue/gray we may think it was the better choice!
