"I am also a big fan of this show, because of Fincher and the detective work, even if the show skirts very close sometimes to murderer fetish..." - Jono

"I love this show. I binged 7 of the 9 episodes and could have finished but I wanted to savor it a little longer. It's such an engrossing show and beautifully filmed" -Raul

Best Celebrity Tweets on Globe Night

I ♥ celebrities. Always have. Always will. Even when I find them insufferable I have to stargaze. Having met so many of them now I'm fully aware that they are only people just like you and me that but for one lucky break or important connection or family wealth or extraordinary quirk of DNA or once-in-a-lifetime talent or deals with Beelzebub or being in the right place at the right time or any number of reasons, they'd be on this side of the 'net obsessing on celebrities just like you and I. Well, actually in the age of twitter, the lines are ever blurring and who is on what side anyway. Everyone loves celebrity. Even celebrities. Here's a sampling of some celebrity or celebrity-adjacent tweets I enjoyed from this year's very memorable Golden Globes. 




Wiig and Ferrell did really have the crowd roaring. Wiig is dependably hilarious but they worked so well as a team riffing on one single joke across five nominees. (P.S. After Tangled, shouldn't Hollywood be asking Levi to work in musicals?)

MATT OSWALT (Puddin' strip)



Tommy Lee jones was enormously grumpy. It's true, internet. It's true. 


more after the jump...

JULIETTE LEWIS (Rockstar of an Actress)


That wasn't isn't funny but I love that she's just shamelessly shillin' her product. I think she'll be great in that particular August: Osage County role.


HUGH JACKMAN (Hugh Jackman)


At the pre-Christmas Les Miz luncheon I attended, Hugh also made it all about his wife. He's very into making it about his wife. 

THOMAS LENNON (Member of the State)



If Jodie Foster's speech hadn't been so incredibly fascinating in its Jodie-ness, those rubber-band weasels or hamsters or whatever they were might have made a bigger impact in the post Globe meme hangovers





Everyone's a critic.


CAZWELL (Rapper)



lol. Write a song about it Cazwell. I know you can do it.


LESLYE HEADLAND (Bachelorette)



Hee. I loooooooved that torture joke that Tina & Amy lobbed Kathryn Bigelow's way. God bless Suzy Amis (wife #5) that she's put up with James Cameron this long! In four more years The Amis/Cameron marriage will have lasted longer than all his other marriages combined. 


SOFIA VERGARA (Celebrity Spokesperson)




She can't spell but it's cute that Modern Family is okay with losing.


CHAD LOWE (The Former Mr. Hilary Swank)



Despite my complicated relationship with Beelzebub (my "affectionate" nickname for Hilary Swank in the Aughts) I LOVE that her amnesia about her husband during her Oscar win (I forget which! And I hate that there's two options!!!!) is still inspiring celebrity banter


ADELE (Superstar)



This combined with Adele's "I feel like Meryl Fucking Streep" tweet on the morning of the Oscar Nominations officially makes Adele the Coolest Person in the World. Not that she hadn't already earned the title 22 million times over.

Plus high fives from James Bond!




 I don't know either! Best Globe hosts ever. Their only fail was all those times that they weren't on camera.

Such a good show. These are pure joy.

OK Hugh, we get it. You love your beard. Sheesh.

My favorite part of this is the internet's jokes about Leonardo DiCaprio's luck with awards.

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip

One of the few times when I actually wanted more hosts jokes and less awards.

"And the salmon comes out...and you're in yemen"
"youuuu get out of herrrrrrreee!"


January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSad man

I think Adele's bad language is a let down as was Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln.

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermark

I love this woman!

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

I actually wouldn't mind to see Streep playing a sassy, bold sheriff, as in Wiig and Ferrell's re-imagining of 'Hope Springs' lol

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos

My favorites--
"It's Hillary Clinton's husband!"
and "Bill Rodham Clinton"

I agree with Ellen Degeneres--more Fey and Poehler!

FYI--Meryl probably loved Lawrence's reference/joke.

I assume Lee-Furness is just morbidly depressed about her failed Hollywood career and Jackman just has to make all of his career successes about her to compensate...
Yeah, look, I got nothing. But Jackman does get a bit exhausting with all this world's-nicest-most-generous-most-ripped-Miss-Congeniality-who-is-a-great-dad-great-husband-and-also-sings! shtick. I swear I never feel bitter except when he's on TV.
(All that said, yes, he really does seem like a genuinely nice kind and freakishly talented person.)

Also, Fey and Poehler need to host every TV show ever - irrespective of whether or not it features awards.

Anyone else think the jokes about Tommy Lee Jones being a stick in the mud will cost him a few of the voters he earned for being the life of the Lincoln party?

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTB

Pam-I think the same thing. I would imagine had she been in the room, she would have laughed hysterically and any "controversy" would have been erased.

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJohn T

Adele's pure joy at winning was just amazing to watch. And, of course, Kristen and Will just killed that intro...I can't believe people complained it went too long!

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBia

Oh, great. Now Jackman is not an underdog anymore and became successful enough for people to start hating on him. About time, I guess. Didn't expect to see it here, though...

January 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAlison

Love the gif that shows Jessica Chastain's hilarious reaction to the Cameron/Bigelow joke, along with Amy Pascal and Mark Boal. Can't believe they didn't get DiCaprio's reaction to that. The Internet would have exploded. I also loved the gag of Amy and Tina putting themselves in the categories for Dog President.
