'Argo' Is Surprise Best Dramatic Picture Winner At Golden Globe Awards
Welcome to Movieline's live coverage of the 70th Annual Golden Globes Awards. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler should be out any minute now, and we'll keep you updated on the good, the bad and the ugly after the jump.
Well, that wraps up our Golden Globes live-blogging for the night. Thanks for reading. More to come on Movieline.
Haha, QED is my middle name.
Great speech, I should make it clear.
I can't argue with you there.
Which shouldn't be interpreted as me criticizing her, just mulling over the larger issues, which are very interesting (and sometimes very saddening).
No heterosexual actor has had to zealously guard their privacy to the point of not even acknowledging they have a significant other, mainly because they would never be punished for it. Keeping your private life private to that extent has to be seen in that context. Which is to say, I'm glad she' acknowledged it, and I'm glad we're at a point at which being gay is really not even a thing anymore. But it took the courage of people willing to risk their careers by coming out to get us to that point.
I'm torn on it. Her speech was fascinating and very eloquent and heartfelt, but I can't help but view her appeal to privacy in context of the ingrained and brutal homophobia that dominated hollywood and the country at large until very recently.
I wish we'd had more Amy & Tina and more Jodie. Could have listened to another 10 minutes of her speech. I suspect her appeal for privacy will fall on deaf ears, but it needed to be said.
Truth, though I could have stood a lot more of them tonight.
This year's Globes were super fun... compared to most years. Amy & Tina were great hosts. Can we have them host everything now?
So, any final thoughts guys?
Clooney and Affleck are much better looking than Spielberg and Day-Lewis.
Wow, an Argo win is kind of unexpected.
OK, please be Django.
Granting DDL the award feels a lot like giving the Beatles a grammy. Yes yes, he's awesome, but go for the more obscure choice guys!
That's just his eyebrows, Frank.
Tommy Lee Jones looking miserable again.
Joaquin Phoenix looks more squirrelly in person than he did in The Master.
I can't wait to read about the insane research and preparation DDL put into the crafting of his acceptance speech.
Jessica Chastain compares Kathryn Bigelow to Maya again. Tonight's Globes are about being on message.
Ben Clooney is half of handsomeness Voltron.
George Clooney, that is. Better lay off the wine.
Ben Clooney zings Ben Affleck. Nice.
Random, yes. I wish it was more breathless and frenetic. Too much of it has felt like the Shavasana pose of a yoga workout.
To answer your question, they are wrapping this up fast it seems. And speaking of, Poehler and Fey have been absent for a long time. You'd think they just made a bunch of scientology and atheism jokes.
Meeeeow. "I haven't forgotten to thank anyone because I haven't started yet."
This has been a most breathless and frenetic and random Golden Globes.
Wow, Hoffman has been driiiinking.
Will this be done in time for East Coast 11 o'clock news?
Oh I'm laughing Ross
BTW, I got invited to one of the after parties tonight. If anyone can figure out which one, go for it...
I was making an obviously brilliant pun on HPV. Clearly it was genius because everyone laughed.
Oh, the big G?
Thanking Deborra-Lee Furness is the theme of Hugh Jackman's awards-season campaign. Similar speech at the Museum of the Moving Image tribute to him.
A vaccine for....?
Brian, they have a vaccine for that now, don't they? ZING.
It's Cherry Pie part 2!
Wow, is anyone else seeing this super suggestive Target commercial?
What do you have to do to be a member of HFPA?
Hugh Jackman is spreading the flu at the Golden Globes.
Denied! The curse of birdwatching strikes again!
Jack Black was robbed for The Big Year so I hope he pulls it through this time.
Ben Affleck forgot to thank George Clooney. Hoo-boy.
Is that Bale, or his Madame Tussaud's likeness? He looks quite waxy.
Christian Bale introing SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK = hilarious.
OH it's Christian Bale and his ridiculously put-on accent.
I still can't get over the sad piano version of Nothing Else Matters.
God helped Maya find bin Laden. (Cue angelic singing.)
I love how the new 'Zero Dark Thirty' ad makes it seem like a religious movie.
Now she's going to divorce him too!
Lena Dunham thanks Chad Lowe.
HAHAHAH nice Chad Lowe joke.
No, a glass of...Casamigos, brought to you by George Clooney.
It's just going to be a picture of the HBO logo with a diamond grill and a glass of Patron.
Man, HBO is going to be bragging like crazy during tonight's Girls premier.
Too soon, guys. #teamcoco
I believe that Jimmy Fallon is the only member of the new generation of late-night talk-show hosts who does not hate Jay Leno.
Jiminy Cricket, "Moonrise Kingdom" got under my skin.
Presenting: Masculinity, a new fragrance by Josh Brolin.
I seem to recall her saying she would no longer be acting a while back.
Sounds like she means she's not going to be in front of the camera anymore?
Is she... retiring?
Yeah, loved it.
This is a fascinating speech.
I am not Honey Boo Boo! Best line of the night.
Aw dang it.
Lots of dumbfounded reaction shots that don't match the speech.
OH wait is she going to come out?
She looks fab.
Hurray for 50.
Wait, what the hell is P. Diddy doing there?
Hahaha, Sommersby! I always forget that movie really exists.
Does Jodie ever attend Mel's pre-Vatican II Catholic Church from the Middle Ages?
I'm glad Contact is getting some love. Dig that movie.
I can't believe Downey apologized in advance for that.
This is kind of failing.
Fey & Poehler on Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift, RJD. Gold.
Robert Downey Jr. is going to roast Jodie Foster. Cool.
No reaction shot from Taylor Swift. Wonder why?
And there's the first mention of Taylor Swift's dating life.
Drunk Amy and Tina. Yes!
I know fun annoys everyone now, but I saw them at the Mercury Lounge in NYC before they hit it big. They were fantastic.
I love the show and guys are dumb. I'm gay, and believe me, I know guys.
Agree to disagree about Fun, but yes, she's awesome, as is the show.
I love Lena Dunham. I love Girls. And it's cool to see that Lena is still with Jack Antonoff from fun.
Lena (or "Lisa") Dunham! Accepting to the sounds of Robyn!
Why do they keep pronouncing Lena Dunham's name like she's a brand of jeans?
There are going to be a lot of angry dudes on the Internet tomorrow. People really hate this show because they're stupid and wrong.
Wow, Lena. Damn. Look at her wing tatts
Poehler on Clooney's lap is the highlight of my day.
Jason Bateman has the best horrified look in show business.
and that *something
I'll say this: if you spend half a movie making it clear how great someone is at something, and then that someone has no bearing on how things end up, my time = wasted.
I can't wait to see Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury.
I haven't seen it and I agree with you.
I'm going to out myself as among the people who think Brave is a significantly overrated movie.
"Russell Crowe had 4 months of singing lessons - that was money well spent" -- OH SNAP, Sacha Baron Cohen
I sat right by Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton at the LA Film Critics last night. She had some FIERCE heels!
OH Sacha Baron Cohen, please never mine your schtick to exhaustion. too late.
Yay, drink in hand! Finally!
We also need more appearances by that Ernst & Young crew. I'd love to see them do a song from "Les Miserables"
Awards telecasts have become so even-keeled. We need more Tommy Lee Jones moments!
We do need some more Tina and Amy.
Claire Danes looks ready to come back to movies.
wow, my So-Called eye liner...
WHERE ARE TINAMY FEYLER?!
I will never stop fighting the Alliance.
OH my god there is so much botox and steroids on the stage right now.
There must be a bar rush during the commercial breaks. Do you think they're all good tippers?
OK, here's the Movie update. With a grand total of 2 wins, Django Unchained is ahead of Life of Pi, Skyfall, Silver Linings Playbook and Les Mis with one win each (unless I'm counting challenged).
Louis CK got robbed!
What do Lucy Liu and Debra Messing have in common? They both look like they can kill a man.
I'm mostly kidding, just perpetuating the lack of geographical awareness American style.
Speaking of salmon, Jeremy Irons looked like was he was very tired from spawning upstream.
Funny you ask. There are no permanent rivers. But there are seasonal ones, apparently.
Maybe the producers should have someone shout out a question about movie violence
I admit I haven't seen the movie, but are there rivers in Yemen?
I wonder who you're talking about?
I have to wonder what it's like to have one's insanely outsized ego so constantly validated by actual results.
So now we begin to wonder in earnest how much the GGs predict the Oscars.
I am so very lukewarm about OZ Great and Powerful. I would give anything for a proper OZ series adaptation, done as a TV series.
Obviously, I'm still a little tipsy from the proceedings.
I want to go to whatever party Adele is at.
Sounds like a better party than you're letting on.
Meant last year.
Jonah Hill really is a chick magnet. I watched him operate at the Vanity Fair Oscar party last night.
That was sweet.
Anne Hathaway is absolutely wearing the best outfit of the night.
He looks like Gov Christie's younger hotter brother
Robby The Robot
The Lost in Space robot
Love the GE Ad. Is that new?
Jennifer Lawrence's thanking Harvey Weinstein for "killing whoever you had to kill" to get her the Globe was pretty genius.
Agree, that was class all the way.
In the traditional Shakespearian sense, yes.
J. Law with the best acceptance speech of the night!
Silver Linings is a comedy?
Can someone explain why Bill Murray has a Flashman beard?
Yeah, it's the expression, not the intent I mean to focus on.
Taylor Swift had something akin to love in her eyes while applauding JLa.
Poor girl was SO nervous last night at LA Film Critics.
Taylor Swift needs to cut out the bitchface.
And he will not tolerate any of this tomfoolery.
He is an Ac-tor!
Tommy Lee Jones' reaction shot to Wiig & Ferrell: PRICELESS
Tommy Lee Jones is not happy.
Second that emotion, Ross.
Jennifer Lawrence is now JLa
jesus christ, Kristin Wiig is looking damn fine
This is how I discuss movies with my parents.
That's his Anchorman 2 mustache!
Is that a wig mustache?
Hey Will Ferrell, Mo-vember is over.
This is amazing. Thank you, Ferrell and Wiig.
What did Anjelica Huston do to her lips?
Whoah, was that Anjelica Huston?
LOL, Bill Rodham Clinton
Tommy Lee Jones looks like he's plotting a murder (perhaps because he's not at the same table with Spielberg and Day-Lewis).
Obama is coming out for Zero Dark 30.
They got Clinton for Lincoln because Obama wasn't available.
NOOO NOW WE'LL BE ENDURING LIBERAL HOLLYWOOD COMPLAINTS oh wait we already do.
BILL CLINTON WHAAAAAT???
Wait, what the what?!?! BIll Clinton?
Bill Clinton, movie star.
HIs speech feels like a eulogy.
Kevin Costner's hair has a purplish hue.
These faux Fey/Poehler nominations are so fake-great, I'd rather see them than a LOT of nominated programs/films.
He apparently drinks enough to be the thin WC Fields
Tina Fey doing Johnny Depp
Benedict Cumberbatch is a drinking game that needs to be invented.
I love Kiefer Sutherland, but he's beginning to look like a thin W.C. Fields
The first time I heard it I was blown away by how it reminded me of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLOTAJQF0Fo
Nerd out all you want and do a shot in between.
If I can nerd out for a second, Skyfall really is the most incredible song. It's not only a great bond song - the first good one since The Living Daylights, IMO, but it's just a really solid, amazingly put together MOR track of the sort we haven't seen since Scott Walker in the late 60s.
Her next song will be One Direction to Heartbreak.
Taylor Swift is looking at Adele like, "I'm going write a song about you, bee-yotch."
Also, YAY Skyfall!
True story: several years back there was a presentation of An Inconvenient Truth in Downtown LA, in this outdoor area. Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora performed, and it was obvious that Mayor Villaraigosa had never heard of them. He came out after their performance and thanked 'Rickie Santora".
You Go Grrl!
Statham looks like he's in character for Lincoln: Civil War Transporter
STAND-UP GUYS actually came out? And it's nominated for BEST SONG??
JLo is not the warmest person in the world. First-hand experience there.
Wow, does that rank up there with the Green Dress?
Jason Statham and J. Lo have the chemistry of two strangers who've never met, let alone made an entire movie together.
Statham looks like he could barely stand to be next to her.
Jennifer Lopez looks stunning.
So, we got Mendez. Can we see Maya next?
Tony Mendez's spiel sounds exactly like the one he read at the National Board of Review awards.
Jennifer Lawrence has donned a sportcoat over her red dress with the dual cup holders.
My mother just said she never of the show... It hasn't hit the Whittier, CA zeitgeist yet.
Robert Downey Jr. kissing Mel Gibson. The redemption is almost complete.
Ross, you're so right about the Homeland hating.
2 for Homeland, 2 for Game Change. Trend? (I kid, sorta)
All these Homeland wins makes up for the way people really hate the last 3 episodes.
Paul Rudd is a damn funny man, too.
And how well Mrs. Lewis' son is doing in imitating American accents.
Not in my apartment.
People still look sober.
Major Winters wins!
Add Bryan Cranston to the manly beard trend.
Paul Rudd is a damn handsome man.
Yes! She zings Jeffrey Katzenberg and Macks on Bradley Cooper.
Pastels. I am seeing a lot of them. Or maybe it's just the wine I'm drinking.
Wow. HFPA presidential speech was one for the ages!
I think JJ Abrams needs to make Aida Takla O'Reilly the name of a future Star Trek character.
So is it too early to notice any trends besides the fact that Jackman & Affleck are rocking some manly beards.
Yes she did. She articulated those romance language words like a newscaster describing a new Italian bistro.
WHOA Catherine Zeta-Jones really wanted that Les Mis gig...
Catherine Zeta-Jones is looking quite busty tonight.
Can we all agree that Julianne Moore is just perfect? It's almost difficult to look at her.
Jay Roach sure had a lot to say.
Yeah, Jodie Foster is aces in my book, too.
er, the era before it wasn't a potential career killer, I mean.
Poehler's line about Kathryn Bigelow understanding torture because she was “married to James Cameron for three years" gets my vote for the sharpest line of the night so far.
I admire her loyalty, and given how she's navigated her private life in the era before being out was still a potential career killer, especially his friendship for her despite his noxious personal inclincations, I get it. But it's still very uncomfortable.
Jodie Foster's allegiance to Mel Gibson still strong. They're sitting next to each other.
What's funny is that Maggie Smith actually won this award last fall, but they weren't allowed to tell Americans until tonight.
And the first award goes to the person who undeniably deserved it, congrats Christoph Waltz.
Speaking of herbal jazz cigarettes, Bradley Cooper everyone!
I think that's something all of America has in common.
"Quentin Tarantino is here, the star of my sexual nightmares..."
Fey and Poehler start strong. "When you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host the show two more times."
