The Golden Globes were, as usual, far more entertaining than the Oscars. I also had no idea they are a humanitarian org. I thought they were just starfuckers (with accents) like me!
It's hard to take the likes of Kelly Osbourne seriously in the realm of fashion of beauty, but Madonna looked amazing—loved the dress and the looser hair. Her shots with Ryan Seacrest were a bit puffier than lately but nonetheless, she remains relaxed and seems genuinely thrilled to be promoting her movie.
Why did fucking Nicole Richie name-check her hairstylist? Can't we leave anything to the imagination?
When the show began, I had to gasp at seeing Madonna and Meryl Streep at the same table. It makes perfect (Weinstein) sense, yet seeing the two living legends (and former feuders) seated together was a big thrill.
Ricky Gervais—who I love—was very funny in his intro. Even funnier was watching the petrified audience cautiously waiting for the blade to drop. The joke about Jodie Foster's Beaver, which he'd never seen and which "a lot of others had never seen," was daring; they cut away rather than linger on Jodie's reaction. She was a great sport.
Poor Gerald Butler...shaking with nerves and as off with his timing as he was on with his beauty. Kudos for rewarding Christopher Plummer for supporting actor! Beginners is a terrific movie and he deserves it for his performance as well as for his career.
Laura Dern is not funnier or better than Amy Poehler, let alone the others in the category of actress in a comedy. They, like the Emmys, always go with people known for their movies in TV categories. Cool seeing Laura brought her mommy Dianne Ladd, who looks the same after all these years.
Rob Lowe's hair is like Priscilla Presley's face: It was perfect for an unnaturally long time, then it just WENT. He and the always gorgeous Julianne Moore handed the trophy to Downton Abbey, which I promise to watch. Poor Elizabeth McGovern taking a spill.
Kate Winslet certainly deserved to win for Mildred Pierce, which I feel was not appreciated as much as it should have been. It's hard remaking perfection, but I think they succeeded by rethinking it from the ground up. She looked spectacular.
As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.
Of whom are you more jealous?
Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.

PASSING BY (2008): Mourning the loss of a person I only met once.
After Marlene Dietrich's death in 1992, the contents of her tiny apartment were splashed across several European magazines, including Paris-Match. This was a tear sheet of Meryl Streep—at her prettiest, mind you—with Dietrich's acidic, hand-scrawled observation: "How ugly can you get?'
An interesting document illustrating the tension between Old and New Hollywood, and between an old woman and old age.
First-ever Best Picture Oscar winner Wings
Wow, The Hurt Locker wins it all...and it wasn't even the most successful film ever made, nor did it rake in over $100 million in its opening weekend (or ever)!
The show was...slow. And uninspiring. But as always, unmissable.
"The time has come..."
Barbra Streisand is rocking the schoolmarm look and seems ultrapleased to be handing the first-ever Best Director Oscar to a woman...even if it's not to Barbra Streisand. (TERRIBLE CAMERA WORK is keeping us from seeing the money shots when these people win at times...and playing her off to "I Am Woman" = lame!)
First Best Actress Oscar winner Janet Gaynor
After Oprah's speech, it almost seemed like Gabourey might sneak up on the front-runners and win the thing! Meryl Streep's intro by Stanley Tucci is hilarious.
But—as expected—Sandra Bullock takes the prize and gives a speech as cute and as eventually heart-tugging as any ever given. Plus she gives a shout-out to not discriminating against people based on sexual orientation.
Sandra Bullock sure looks pretty...and pretty nervous! She seems like such a good person. This would be what gives her the Oscar if she wins it, 'cuz even if she was amazing in The Blind Side, Meryl Streep is amazing in everything. (Even Prime!)
First Best Actor winner Emil Jannings
Loved the actors' remembrances before each of the Best Actors' names were announced, though they ran a bit long and how embarrassing that they couldn't get anyone better for Renner than Colin Farrell due to their co-starring stint in S.W.A.T. No one could top Pfeiffer's tribute to Jeff Bridges (please remind me all the amazing films he's made?), but I sure wish this one had gone to Colin Firth!
Ah, to be handed an Oscar by Kate Winslet...imagine?
Oh, that's right...The Last Picture Show (but I refuse to count Starman)
