Rose:Did you just get back from a funeral?

Dorothy: No Rose, we were singing back-up for Johnny Cash.


Wha? Golden Globes?! Oh, my bad...

Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrell as one of the best moments of the show? That was one of the worst bits I've ever seen between presenters on an award show. They go on and on and on in a vain attempt to be funny. Failing miserably. Yet later recipients are cut off during their acceptance speeches.

The orchestra should have played them off.

That 'article' only made me more glad I didn't waste my time watching it. Regarding Jodie Foster, how can you 'Come out' as a lesbian when you've been living in the open as a lesbian your entire adult life?

/would still like to try to 'cure' her.
//I wouldn't, but I'd like to try
 
2013-01-14 08:57:51 AM  
Fey and Poehler were the best part of the show. As for oddest, I would have to go with Jodi Foster's rambling. Acting and public speaking are related skills, but not the same. Can be good at one, but not the other, as she demonstrated last night (and Clint Eastwood did a few months back).

Judie Foster came out ?

Dang, there goes my chances.

And am I the only one to think that Anne Hathaway has a very "meh" face, when she's not on a big screen ? (the body is quite an other matter)

There were some mentions in a previous thread along the lines of how her face looks like it's melting and how her skull is too big (or too small) for her face or some ridiculousness like that.

Seemed like a typical SNL bit, should have lasted 30 seconds, went on for 2 minutes.

Exactly, which is why she said that this wasn't a "coming out" speech, because she's been out to everyone that's mattered to her. What it was was her first really public acknowledgement of her sexuality. She had previously acknowleged her then-partner Cydney at a 2007 Hollywood function, but it didn't get a lot of press because it wasn't televised and was still pretty ambiguous ("My sweet Cydney").

Of course, even after last night, the press is still trying to parse Foster's words because she didn't say absolutely, unambiguously, "I'm gay" or "I'm a lesbian" or "I'm bisexual" (which might be the case). Which is pretty funny, considering Foster herself addressed that directly in her speech - the press and public's need for absolutisms (a press conference and reality show and fragrance heralding a "coming out") - and that she wants none of it. Just because someone is LGBT doesn't mean they should feel compelled to announce it to the world, and just because someone isn't compelled to announce it to the world doesn't mean they are closeted. And being a public figure should not obligate one to divulge every intimate detail of one's life, especially when they've never done anything but live honestly.

I think that given the occasion and the award she was receiving, Foster wanted very much to publicly acknowledge the role that Cydney has played in her personal and professional life. And to do that meant lowering her guard a bit, and so she did, albeit grudgingly and on her own terms. Privacy means everything to this woman, and can you blame her? She's been in the public spotlight since she was 3, and a guy once tried to kill the President in a crazed attempt to win her love. I commend her for the way she's chosen to live her life and protect her privacy, and I wish her well as she enters her next 50 years.

Looking at the list, all I missed was an episode of SNL, which means I missed nothing.

I heard he is a total dork though. But he does have a rather cool hoverboard he acquired and a self-drying jacket so there are some pluses.

I don't think I've watched an entire awards show since Michael Jackson swept the Grammys so I'm probably late on this, but two things stood out for me:

1) At one point they showed a reverse angle when someone was giving a thank-you speech. They actually have giant TV's in the back that say "WRAP UP"

2) The microphone height was controlled remotely. Why even bother with that sign? Just lower the mic into the floor--slowly, so they awkwardly try to follow it down while talking.

Tina and Amy need to do the Globes every year. The only problem is there wasn't enough of them. They'd be gone for the longest stretches of time.

No need to watch the show when I can watch these clips and giggle.

It seems to me that society in general has no problem with her and her private life, and keeping it private. If she's feeling any pressure at all it's probably from the LBGT community wanting her to be their standard bearer.

I had the same idea for political debates.

Why are so many that concerned about the how and when of Ms. Foster's sexual orientation exposure. It is like a bunch of sharks swimming around a lone dolphin. Instead they should be congratulating and appreciating her brilliant career and overcoming the horrors and tragedies of her personal life for so long, yet still remaining one of top persons in her field with two occupations as well. As for her personal life and choices, those are hers and she has a right to them for whatever reasons she chooses. Whether or not people agree with them is irrelevant.

We're still not entirely out of those woods. There's still work to do. You've still got tabloid covers blaring 'GUESS WHO'S GAY!' every once in a while. Anderson Cooper spent years not saying he was for fear it would color people's perception of him and that it's not what people wanted their first impression of him to be; he finally came out only under pressure from people who thought his remaining in the closet was sending the wrong message, and sure enough, it's gay jokes all the time about him now, exactly like he feared. Coming out is still not a painless thing to do.

I think his name is one of those things that I've only read and not heard. Or heard so infrequently that I'm not sure what the pronunciation should be.

I would have pronounced his name exactly as its spelled- loo iss see kay. How are you supposed to say it?

Also, "hyperbole". Is the "e" a long e or silent. I.e. is it a 3 or 4 syllable word?

I know it's cutting edge to make Adele fat jokes, but as someone who's going to be having a baby in a few months, I was much happier to see her post-baby look than Claire Danes' and Megan Fox's post-baby looks. It's comforting to know not every new mom in showbiz is down to a size 0 by the time they leave the hospital.

My only beef was that she was given his award at all. The clips of her movies pretty much made clear how thin her resume is even after being in the business  that long. A big meh.

Concur 100%. Forced funny is rarely actually funny. This was a solid example of that being true.

That makes sense actually but it definitely does not explain how she can get on television in front of millions of people and share multiple components of her personal,private life: her single status, her ex-lesbian lover's name, her mom's apparent serious illness, her kids names and faces and yet SHE WHINED ON AND ON ABOUT LACKING PRIVACY.

Just shut up really.

Oh don't think I'm a skinny guy. I think she's good lookin to be honest. I saw it and said 'Well, I'm going to try to photoshop something funny in her hands.' And it so happen to be a sandwich. At least it's a healthy looking sandwich and not some big meatball sub.

The difference is between HAVING to share and WANTING to share. Nobody should be forced into saying something publicly that they don't want to. People should be able to choose when, where, and to whom they divulge anything.
