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.
ZACHARY LEVI (Chuck)
I wanna be the illegitimate offspring of Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell in my next life.— Zachary Levi (@ZacharyLevi) January 14, 2013
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)
Golden Globes isn't over until Tommy Lee Jones is ziplocked and put back in the freezer between Mickey Rourke and some venison— Matt Oswalt (@Puddinstrip) January 14, 2013
Tommy Lee jones was enormously grumpy. It's true, internet. It's true.
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)
My beautiful wife at the golden globes. A night to remember! twitter.com/RealHughJackma…— Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) January 14, 2013
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)
I just optioned the movie rights to Mel Gibson's plate of rubber-band weasels.— Thomas Lennon (@thomaslennon) January 14, 2013
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
MARTINA MCBRIDE (Singer)
I wanna see all these movies!! Except maybe the salmon one.— Martina McBride (@martinamcbride) January 14, 2013
Everyone's a critic.
Kate Hudson reminds me of a white Jennifer Lopez.— CAZWELL (@CAZWELLnyc) January 14, 2013
lol. Write a song about it Cazwell. I know you can do it.
LESLYE HEADLAND (Bachelorette)
Kathryn Bigelow is my dream. I want to be 60. Still working. Stunning. Possibly an Oscar. Definitely a crazy ex husband.— Leslye Headland (@molotovcocktail) January 14, 2013
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)
Yeah we loose this timesay.ly/NWA4XiY— Sofia Vergara (@SofiaVergara) January 14, 2013
She can't spell but it's cute that Modern Family is okay with losing.
CHAD LOWE (The Former Mr. Hilary Swank)
Congrats to @lenadunham on your Golden Globe win. But, seriously? You forget to thank me?! After all we've been through? I'm shocked.— Chad Lowe (@ichadlowe) January 14, 2013
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
I just met Daniel fucking Day Lewis!!!— Adele (@OfficialAdele) January 14, 2013
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!
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hilarious. I don't know why someone didn't think of this sooner. #GoldenGlobes— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) January 14, 2013
I don't know either! Best Globe hosts ever. Their only fail was all those times that they weren't on camera.
