Britt’s 2 cents.

First off…yay Heath Ledger! Yay Anna Paquin! Yay Tina Fey! and Yay Kate Winslet! This was a pretty unpredictable Globes in my opinion, I found myself being surprised more then being spot on when it came to the winners of each category. This was a very interesting telecast, and offered alot to blog about. Here are my hits and misses of the eveing. Whether it be someone’s speech, facial expression, wardrobe or how they acted on the red carpet, things definet stood out.

Hits:

Slumdog Millionare - This little indie that could took home 4 Globes last night including the coveted Best Picture. Danny Boyle has done some great films in the past (28 Days Later, Trainspotting) so it’s great to see him take home the best director trophy as well. Now, the last time the GG’s gave away Best Picture to a film that actually took home the Best Picture Oscar was in 2003 for Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. GG’s are known to show love to certain films that the Oscars like to turn a cold shoulder to, (see Atonement) But let’s hope this film continues it’s impressive streak right on to the Oscars. Extra points go to star Freida Pinto and her beautiful dress!

Kate Winslet - After being nominated 5 times before she FINALLY won….twice! Her speeches were so heartfelt and humble. Forgetting crabby Angelina Jolie’s name was pretty damn funny as well.

Heath Ledger - What a great way to honor the late Heath Ledger awarding him his much deserving Best Supporting Actor. Demi Moore looked like she was about to cry when she announced his name, and director Christopher Nolan gave a great speech when excepting his award. The Camera panned to fellow nominees Robert Downey Jr, Tom Cruise and Ralph Fiennes..and they didn’t look the least bit disappointed. They looked like they were proud after a clip of Heath’s Joker was shown. Great sportsmanship

Darren Aronofsky - The director of ‘The Wrestler’ flipping off his star Mickey Rourke when he mentioned him in his speech..not blowing him a kiss or waiving, but flipping him the freaking bird! Awesome.

Speaking of awesome, how about Tina Fey’s awesome acceptance speech for Best Actress in a TV comedy? Telling all her internet haters to “suck it”. She deserves an award just for saying that, and she’s probably the only person that could get away with it..and seriously, who hates Tina Fey? Really.

Misses

Miley Cyrus - Sticking your toungue out when the camera pans to you after announcing your nomination? That seemed a little immature. You should be proud that you were nominated, and show some respect..kudos to the eye rolling when the Jonas Brothers were on stage, at least that was some what amusing.

Speaking of which… The Jonas Brothers have got to be the most overrated band in history. They seemed so out of place at the Golden Globes with their tight pants and abstance of annoying, shrieking female tweens. I try to be understanding, I mean..I too was once a tweener who was obssessed with Hanson back in my day, but Hanson, Nsync, BSB…they never had two back to back tours, then a movie, then a tv show, then another movie..sorry girls, that’s a little to much Jonas for me. I’d rather them be off my television.

Zac Efron should stick to acting and singing instead of presenting. He looked like he was just staring at himself in the monitor rather than present his category. At least Hayden Panieterre looked lovely.

Dustin Hoffman - Way to look like an asshole while Emma Thompson is up there making jokes! His reaction to her “we come at a discounted rate” joke was just mean.

The crowd snearing at Sascha Baron Cohen for making a joke about Guy Ritchie. - Apparently I’m in the minority here, because I thought it was funny.

Renee Zellwegger’s Dress -wtf? That’s literally all I can say..

Kristin Scott Thomas - Maybe not everyone noticed this, but Joe Fatone interviewed her on the red carpet before the Globes and she could not have been more cold. She came off as so stuck up that I wasn’t too disappointed when neither she, nor her film “I’ve Loved You So Long” went home empty handed.
