Eva Longoria and Don Cheadle introduce Ms Golden Globe, Francesca Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s daughter,) and Mr Golden Globe, Sam Fox (Michael J. Fox’s son.) They then present best Miniseries or TV Movie. And the winner is… Game Change! Here’s my favorite thing about this movie. It was written by Danny Strong, AKA Doyle in Gilmore Girls and Jonathan on Buffy, and I love that he went from being a silly character actor to a serious force in TV writing. Eva and Don then present Best actress in a Miniseries or TV movie. The winner is… Julianne Moore!
“Why didn’t I win?”
The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (henceforth I will call it the HFPA), who has an unpronounceable name, says goodbye, because she is retiring, I think. She is relieved to know she will be remembered; Jeffery Katzenberg will never forget her name, because he never knew it in the first place. Ha! And then she hits on Bradley Cooper. Work it, old lady!
Salma Hayek and Paul Rudd present the nominees for Best Actor, TV Drama. They have some awkward scripted banter. Sigh. And the winner is… Damien Lewis! Very deserving, but a bit of a surprise to me that he won. I thought for sure it would be Bryan Cranston. I love listening to his English accent. It’s also fun to see that he does the small-mouth-talky thing even when he isn’t doing his fake American accent. He dedicates his award to his mum. Aaawww…
Oops! We’ve got some technical difficulties and there’s an awkward pause for Salma and Paul. Looks like they’re supposed to be presenting Best TV Series- Drama. And the winner is… Homeland! The acceptance speech is really cute, because Claire Danes is holding Morena Baccarin’s hand, and that’s sweet, and the guy who plays Mike is doing his best Blue Steel. And he looks good doing it.
John Goodman takes the stage with the guy Argo was about to present highlights from the movie. And he’s so incredibly awkward and stiff, it’s a good lesson as to why people don’t play themselves in movies.
Jennifer Lopez and Jason Statham present to us the nominees for Best Score. And the winner is… Mychael Danna for Life of Pi! That was clearly unexpected, because he has to hoof it from all the way in the back of the audience. Plus, randomly, there’s some international music star who brings the award to the stage? What just happened? His speech is incredibly heartfelt. Yawn. Jen and Jason then present Best Song. And the winner is… Adele for “Skyfall!” Love it! I am a huge Adele fan, and this song really was perfect. Adele takes the stage, and she looks so beautiful, and I can’t believe she’s a mom now! She’s screaming “Oh my God!,” and she seemingly genuinely didn’t expect to win, and says she’s been pissing herself laughing all night! Ack! So cute!
