Winners of "12 Years A Slave", "Dallas Buyers Club", "American Hustle"

Just 10 minutes into last night’s (okay, 3 hours ago) Golden Globes,  I tweeted #TamyFoehler ( they are a couple aren’t they 😉 ) are already killing with the laughs at the #GoldenGlobes.

I wasn’t drinking. Had no fancy dinner. Was sitting in my ‘schooshy pants’ in my Italian recliner, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made me feel like I was right there with them at the boozey Golden Globe® Ceremony.

The Academy Award® extravaganza is the Grand Daddy of all the award shows, but I relish presenters and nominees half in the bag on live broadcasts. Sometimes a little sloppy – – but always fun.

There’s an English saying, “Start as you mean to go on”, and that’s exactly what Fey and Poehler did. Their almost 10 minute opening monologue was hilarious.

The Intro:

“Good evening, I’m Amy Poehler and I’m Tina Fey. Welcome to the 71st Annual Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler Golden Globe Awards.”

Poking fun at the Industry:

We are so happy to be back. We are hosting the Golden Globes for our 2nd time because this is Hollywood and if something ‘kinda works’ they’ll just keep doing it until everybody hates it.

Poking fun at the Actors and Actresses:

Poehler correctly pronounces somewhat difficult nominee names of Chiwetel Ejiofor and  Lupita Nyong’o both up for 12 Years a Slave but then admonishes herself for flubbing the American treasure “Tam Honks”  – – Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips. They spritz about the mega watt stars in front if them and then Poehler says:

“Matt Damon is here from Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night in any other room you’d be a big deal, but tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, but your basically a garbage person.”

They both poked fun at their ex-SNL Alumn Julia Louis-Dreyfus who was a double nominee for  her TV series “Veep” and for her turn with the late James Gandolphini for Enough Said. It was a sight gag, where they spotted Louis-Dreyfus sitting in the ‘movie section’, smoking an electronic cigarette wearing sunglasses with her new film buddy Reese Witherspoon. Louis-Dreyfus had no time for a ‘selfie’ with Witherspoon or acknowledgment of knowing Fey or Poehler.

Poehler: “Helloooo, you know us from TV…?” She’s really changed. Fey: “She’s gross.”

Their joke about Woody Allen, was uncontroversial and extremely safe. But their shot at George Clooney was a home-run.

“Gravity is nominated for best film: It’s the story about how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”

The jokes continued down the line from Jonah Hill’s pool party, to Andy Samberg’s music video “I’m on a Boat” being adapted to the become the film, “Captain Phillips” to Fey inviting Somali pirates up to her hotel room. Fey also promised: “We’re going to get this show done in 3 hours, or as Martin Scorsese calls it: “Act 1”.

The first win of the night was Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle. The next award went to Jacqueline Bisset for “Dancing on the Edge”. Sadly, her acceptance speech was a shambles if not depressing to watch. She’s been nominated 13 times in her career, mostly for off the radar awards. If anything, she should’ve laid off the booze and stiffened herself with a little pride knowing this may be her last chance to be remembered fondly by her peers for something other than “Bullitt” (1968). You can view the speech Here. To compare her lucidity on the Red carpet, click Here.

The most delicious upsets of the night for me, was the win for Andy Samberg for his role on the little known TV comedy series “Brooklyn Nine Nine”. This was Samberg’s first Golden Globe nomination and his first win. Does that officially now make him more powerful than Lorne Michaels…?. Brooklyn Nine Nine also won for Best Television Series, Comedy. In my earlier post on the “2014 Golden Globes :: Snubs ‘n’ Picks” I had said:

I’d fall out of my chair if this won. This really is My Pick! Such a *wildcard* This show is REALLY Good. The casting of Andre Braugher is so out of the box. It all works! I can’t even look at series regular  anymore without busting out laughing.

The awards were bookended by the two most complex guys working in Hollywood. Interestingly, they are only 2 years apart in age and I wonder if this age group is the mean in Hollywood right now making all the decisions.

Robert Downey Jr., 48, hit the stage to present the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. His patter as always was über hip and super cool.

Johnny Depp, 50, forever aloof, always hot, presented the final award of the evening for Best Motion Picture – Drama which (spoiler alert maybe still at this hour) went to “12 Years a Slave”.

As far as “My Pick” list was concerned, I wasn’t batting very well in the TV category, until the win for “Behind the Candelabra” (2013) for Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
