COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
FOXCATCHER & GONE GIRL teasers...

Foxcatcher: Carrell's fake schnoz and affected speaking voice could be VERY problematic over the course of a feature film, but this is a terrific teaser and Tatum in a singlet assuages many other concerns. This is a big yes too.❞ - Roark

 I love that the Gone Girl trailer purposely keeps Amy a mysterious figure throughout -- we just get glimpses. Casting someone like Rosamund was really genius because the character is supposed to feel unfamiliar.❞ -Bia

Golden Globe Winners 

refresh your screen for updates


I shall recap the Globes afterwards. I can't even with the live-blogging. I miss so much every time. So here is the winners list as they are announced and the general timeline of events.  

SUPPORTING ACTRESS Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle
'don't ever do this again. It's so scary' - the first part!
SUPPORTING ACTRESS TV Jacqueline Bissett, Dancing on the Edge
clearly overwhelmed after such a long career. Remember when she slept with Rob Lowe in Class (1984)?
MINISERIES Behind the Candelabra
ACTRESS MINISERIES Elisabeth Moss, Top of the Lake
so deserving but i was not expecting her.

Captain Phillips & The Wolf of Wall Street intros...

ACTOR, DRAMA TV Bryan Cranson, Breaking Bad 
DRAMA TV Breaking Bad 

Philomena intro...

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE Alex Ebert, All is Lost
I'm so happy for this win and the guy has a cute moment with P Diddy. (Is that what we call him now? I seriously don't know/care)  "thanks for letting me try all over your movie"
BEST ORIGINAL SONG "Ordinary Love" U2 for Mandela
I should've predicted this. This was a 'duh' moment even though Frozen totally shoulda... 
SUPPORTING ACTOR, DRAMA TV Jon Voight, Ray Donovan
Damn, I was hoping for Rob Lowe who was so hilariously creepy  in Behind the Candelabra

Her intro... it occurs to me that these intros are so much more important to people who don't see all the movies. But no clips of the 

BEST ACTRESS IN A COMEDY, MUSICAL Amy Adams, American Hustle
Yep, she's getting the nomination over Streep. This woulda shocked us so hard a few months ago. (Like Julianne Moore she just waited so long to win anything major!)

Miss Golden Globe! It's the spawn of Kevin & Kyra.

BEST ACTRESS, DRAMA TV Robin Wright, House of Cards
SUPPORTING ACTOR, MOVIES Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club
SCREENPLAY Spike Jonze, Her
(our "stealth entertainer of the year") 

Nebraska intro...

BEST ACTOR, MINISERIES/MOVIE  Michael Douglas, Behind the Candelabra
BEST ACTRESS, COMEDY TV Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation

BEST DIRECTOR Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity
Makes a herpes joke to Sandra Bullock. LOL.
BEST ACTOR, COMEDY Leonardo DiCaprio, Wolf of Wall Street

Incredibly awkward 12 Years a Slave intro  but then a relevant to the movie Rush intro. What is going on?

BEST MOVIE, COMEDY OR MUSICAL American Hustle 
BEST ACTRESS, DRAMA Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine
BEST ACTOR, DRAMA Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club
BEST MOVIE, DRAMA 12 Years a Slave
Huge surprise given that it lost every other nomination ! Shocked acceptance speech with Sarah Paulson, McQueen dubbed "The Bette Davis of America" (???), acting as teleprompter for the frazzled director.

So Lawrence is taking the Oscar, I presume. Depressing.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLuke

I like Lawrence but this is just too much for such a young career

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDrew

So Adams wins.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermark

Awwww how cute @ jacqueline bissett!!!!!..... Someone give her a part on American horror story!!!

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdavid

Jennifer - the first part

What does Nat mean by the "first part"

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMe

the winners are so old and so young.

and so off?

corey stoll... :(

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

I am happy for Amy Adams... she deserved to be the bride for once!

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBia

Kudos to Amy if she pulls off the nomination this Thursday. It's kind of crazy how easy she's accumulating all these nominations though, isn't it? I keep thinking she'll fizzle out but it seems the industry really really likes her.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMitch

I think Adams now becomes Blanchetts main competeition with the added hook of having never won or she wins next year for Tim Burton's Big Eyes..

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermark

Damn - looks like Adams will get the nom over the much much much better Streep.

I don't think I can look if American Hustle wins Best Picture. Totally overrated.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBette Streep

It will actually be bad for Lawrence if she wins a 2nd Oscar so soon. She'll immediately become overrated. She might not head completely downhill like Swank's career but still, it would be better for her if she didn't win.

So glad Adams and Moss won, irrespective if they're actually worthy. They've been nominated so many times without ever winning so it's nice to see them have their moment.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

If this makes Adams a serious threat to WIN the Oscar....I just don't think I can.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAaron

Wardrobe malfunction, take 2.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

Bette Streep , I love Amy , but she didn't deserve to win . It is one of her worst performances to date . I could feel and see her struggle with her performance . It was very distracting to me . Actually , none of the performances from American Hustle deserve wins . Plus, how could any voter get past Jennifer Lawrence's very shoddy Long Island accent , and her junior high school performances in her films ? These award shows are hysterical .

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentertina p.

Spike Jonze and Chris Martin are the hottest.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

Lawrence has more range than Swank ever did. People want to know why Swank never went further aside from her naturally unfortunate physical appearance is her lack of range.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Best Actress Comedy/Musical is usually only good for an Oscar nod, but kiss of death for the win. (Note: I said usually.)

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

Bisset slept with Andrew McCarthy in Class! Rob Lowe was her son.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTyler

It's funny, I've never ever liked Amy Adams, but I felt super happy for her for finally winning something. It must feel really good after being a bridesmaid for so long.

I'm not gonna lie, having the first award go to Jennifer Lawrence over Lupita really made me pretty angry and I can't really enjoy the show at all. She JUST won last year, was completely miscast, and in no way was even close to Lupita's performance. It's sad. Back to back winner at 23? That's ridiculously insane. I'm praying Lupita still somehow pulls it off.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip H.

3rtfull, heck no . Jennifer Lawrence wishes she had Hilary Swank's talent . Trust me , she couldn't pull-off Swank's performances in Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby .

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentertina p.

@3rtful - totally agree about Lawrence's range, and she has the young, blonde, 'f---ability' factor that Hollywood will drool all over that Swank didn't have.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

Did anyone else notice the fake smile on Sandra Bullock's face when she read Jennifer Lawrence's name ? Sandy didn't want JLaw to win .


Wow ! Bradley Cooper is always kissing up to people.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentertina p.

emma thompson is awesome today! (or always)

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

Brooklyn 99 will prob be canceled soon watch lol

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdavid

Finally a truly deserving acting winner in DiCaprio!

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLuke

Yes, Peggy Sue!!! Spike Jonze, good looking AND talented

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLars

Leonardo, could he take Ejiofor down and finally when the overdue Oscar? Hopefully.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterkatie

I'm always looking forward to watch these ceremonies but in the end I always feel like it wasn't worth it... lol

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

so "12 years a slave" is getting nothing probably? I can already hear some corners of the internet exploding!

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

When McConaughey was announced I changed the channel. Fuck him. Hollywood Foreign Press weren't even trying to fake this year.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

well, it won the big one!

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

I actually really liked Lawrence in American Hustle. I don't even mind the accent (I can't throw stones when I sound trained American Neutral until I get mad or really anxious and then I sound like an extra from Goodfellas; it really is a Jersey+area thing). Since my own winner (Emma Watson in The Bling Ring) and runner-up (Carey Mulligan, Inside Llewyn Davis) are DOA for awards attention, I can live with Lawrence winning another Oscar. Let's call it the make-up for Winter's Bone. It's about framing the narrative.

Amy Adams is really sensation in American Hustle and I'll be glad if she gets in for the Oscars. She has so much more to do than anyone else in the film and gets--what--two scenes that even come close to the more bombastic moments for Lawrence, Cooper, and Bale get the whole way through the film.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRobert G

I'm not sure if I'm the only one rooting for Julie Delpy and Julia Dreyfuss here...I love Amy Adams but I don't think she was up to par in American Hustle and even if she does get nominated for an Oscar, she will not be a threat to Queen Blanchett, her number of winless nominations notwithstanding. Poor Streep...she's getting snubbed big time. Maybe I'm the minority but I think her performance in AOC was really good.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJans

Biggest disappointment of the night for me was Helena Bonham Carter losing Best TV Movie actress. She's well on her way to becoming the Angela Lansbury of the Globes. :/

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMike M.

Every time I watch Meryl in one of these types of roles (Bridges of Madison County, A Cry in the Dark, August Osage County) I always feel like I'm being literally steamrolled by her chops. It just leaves a little bit of a taste of phoniness, as much as I love her in other roles (Sophie's Choice is the best performance by any actor, male or female, ever). Also, it was much more a dramatic than a comedic role, that couldn't have helped.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

People seemed to love McConaughey's speech in other corners of the internet, but I thought it was awful, really disjointed (could he not pronounce Ejiofor's last name?) to the point that I wondered if he were drunk. Plus, we've all heard those Dazed and Confused lines before. I'm no fan of Leo's, to put it mildly, but his acceptance speech was far more gracious and impressive - if this is step one to the Oscars, I can't help but think Leo got a head start.

Cate's speech was terrific, and I have to agree with Jans - Adams won't be any competition for her. Her performance was just too strong, and she's become such a respected actress that there's a desire to reward her with a lead Oscar.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

also don't think cate is in trouble (at all). "blue jasmine" wasn't that great but it was her show, amy adams is not winning over her.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

I agree with Suzanne, I thought McConaughey's speech was terrible. Not sure if that has any effect on the race or not?
So thrilled that Amy Poehler finally won an award for Parks and Rec! She is so brilliant on the show.
I haven't seen 12 years a slave yet, so I didn't know what she looked like, but Lupita is absolutely stunning.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdaisy

Sometimes there's a Globe winner that doesn't make it to the Oscars (Richard Gere, Sally Hawkins, Colin Farrell) and I think this year it will be Amy Adams.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSad man

My main takeaway from tonight is that my Spike Jonze crush is now running at an all time high. What an handsome adorable dork of a man.

January 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRoark

I'm split down the middle in terms of what I think of the results:

FANTASTIC CHOICES
Motion Picture - Drama (12 Years a Slave)
Actor - Comedy/Musical (Leonardo DiCaprio)
Actress - Drama (Cate Blanchett)
Screenplay (Her)

PRETTY GREAT CHOICES
Actor - Drama (Matthew McConaughey) however would have given it to Chiwetel Ejiofor
Director (Alfonso Cuaron) however would have given it to Steve McQueen

TERRIBLE CHOICES
Supp. Actor (Jared Leto) anyone else bar Bradley Cooper
Actress - Comedy/Musical (Amy Adams) anyone else
Supp. Actress (Jennifer Lawrence) anyone else

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLuke

Say what you will about Kate Beckinsale, she is one of the most beautiful women on the planet.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

I thought Actor and Actress were locked, but with DiCaprio winning over Dern and Adams winning over Streep, what does this mean for Oscar?

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLucky

Great stars Bissett and Voight starred in End of the Game in 1976. Nearly 40 years later they win Globes in like categories. Fucking cool.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

The really interesting thing this year will be to see what the awkward timing of the season does to campaigns/perceptions/ultimate outcomes. Less than a week from now we'll also have the BFCA AND SAG wins to chew over for basically a whole month until BAFTA, with another couple weeks until Oscar after that. We'll rush through the meat of the season before the Olympics, and then sit for a long enough period of time that we'll see all kinds of crazy theories and propositions take hold to stave off the boredom. But with that much time to mull them over, some of it can actually take hold.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRJ

YAYs!!!!

Tina and Amy

12YAS

Amy Adams

Cranston/Breaking Bad

DiCaprio

Elisabeth Flippin' Moss

Spike Jonze's speech. Not yet seeing Her and cannot judge the script, I thought he gave the nicest, sincerest speech that I would have never expected from him.

NAYs

Lawrence and Leto. Just not getting either's front-runner status, but JLaw at least had a speech that was not as recycled.

McConaughey's speech. He was soooooooooo wasted. Not the type of speech to win over the room. I don't think he came off as his best at all.

Voight. REALLY? That category and you pick him?

Showing Mia Farrow in those Woody Allen tribute clips. A well put together clip that could've taken from so many movies but you show Purple Rose of Cairo. If you're not going to act like something happened, avoid letting some visual cues slip as reminders.

Emma Thompson in her own world, as if to try and outdo Fey and Poehler. No dear, do not try that. It's overcompensating. Then again, she and Jennifer Lawrence are doing the same exact things, aren't they?

Bono's speech. It's not a bad song but the moment they were announced, my eyes rolled and boy that speech succeeded expectations of self-importance. TEAM PLEASE, MR. KENNEDY.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCMG

Tina and Amy were amazing, and just like last year, I wish there was more of them. Julia Louis-Dreyfus also gets a huge thumbs up for being so game -- loved that Tina and Amy incorporated her into their little bits, because JLD is comedy gold. Well, just gold period.

Other than that, the movie section of the Globes was a combination of quelle surprise and baffling to me apart from 12YAS winning best picture. The TV section had its share of headscratchers, but I found those easier to understand at least.

I sense the Hathaway-ing of Jennifer Lawrence to begin in earnest tomorrow. There are already vicious sections frothing today. It's almost a statistical impossibility at this point, but I truly wish that she gets "snubbed" at the Oscars later on this week. I like you, JLaw, I really do! I just don't want to read more bile and hate about a really cool actress all over again.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFlickah

Cate Blanchett "Thank you for plying me with vodka the in the way that Judy Garland was probably plied with barbiturates" How booze loosens the tongue!

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjoel6

@CMG I understand that showing Mia Farrow could be pretty awkward considering the shit he must have put her through, but at the same time the Mia Farrow era is such an amazing and important section of his filmography and she plays major roles in those films. It seems to be almost an impossibility to have a Woody Allen clip show and not include her in it. Also, The Purple Rose of Cairo is one of my favorite films (my favorite of Allen's films) and I was delighted to catch a glimpse of her in it again.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJoey D

Is it the first time that The best Picture Comedy, Best Picture Drama, Best Director and Best Screenplay went to 4 different films in GG history?
