I've noted this a few times now, but of all the jokes that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler told during their killer Golden Globes performance, the one that resonated most with me was their jab at Avatar director James Cameron: "I haven't been following the controversy surrounding Zero Dark Thirty," Poehler said name-checking director Kathryn Bigelow. "But when it comes to torture, I trust the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron." more »
Jennifer Lawrence hasn't had many opportunities to show off her comedic chops onscreen — she only burst onto the scene three years ago in Winter's Bone, then quickly filled up her dance card with action blockbusters like X-Men: First Class and The Hunger Games before taking on the awards season contender Silver Linings Playbook — but the Best Actress front-runner has been delighting awards-watchers left and right on the Oscar circuit these past few months. The girl is funny — sardonic, whip-smart, witty, self-deprecating, and she knows what's what as she plays the Hollywood game, which is why her post-Golden Globes hosting gig on Saturday Night Live will be one to watch.
Aspiring awards-show hosts, do I have a training video for you. Here, in one sweet video-clip compilation, is a highlight reel of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's pitch-perfect performance at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Included are Poehler's lines about the "beautiful people of film rubbing shoulders with the rat-faced people of television," Les Miserables actress Anne Hathaway not being cut out for porn, and Fey's warning to singer/songwriter Taylor Swift to "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son," Sam. more »
Last night’s Golden Globes cemented Argo as the People’s Film from an awards season stand-point, setting the scrappy underdog to stand toe-to-toe with the monolithic Lincoln. Theoretically, the “People’s Film” would be The Hunger Games, which won Favorite Movie at the People’s Choice Awards, but in the context of the Oscars, the populism is relative to the awards — and none of the elite awards are more populist than the Golden Globes.
The Clinton on-stage appearance was kept very hushed to maintain the surprise. Also in Monday's round-up of news, Zero Dark Thirty tops the weekend's box office as it headed into wide release; the Golden Globes had their best ratings in years; the Berlin International Film Festival sets its co-production market; and Robert DeNiro will receive honors at an Italian festival ahead of the Oscars.
While the rest of the world dissects the coming-out portion of Jodie Foster's Golden Globes speech, I'd like to focus on another potential bombshell the 50-year-old filmmaker appeared to have dropped while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement: The suggestion that she was somehow retiring from the business. more »
"I'm... single," teased Jodie Foster Sunday night as she accepted the Golden Globes' Cecil B. Demille award, before launching into the most riveting, daring, and yes, often random speeches of the night. What seemed to begin as a coming out speech touched on celebrity culture, privacy, Honey Boo Boo, Mel Gibson, her ex-partner Cydney Bernard and their children, and had some speculating she was talking retirement (a suggestion she refuted backstage).
Argo won the Best Motion Picture, Drama, while Les Misérables took Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical Sunday night at the 70th Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton. Looking surprise when his name was called, Ben Affleck took Best Director for Argo. He was snubbed for an Oscar nomination last week, but Affleck, who also stars in the film, took Best Director at the recent Critics Choice Awards.
The 2013 Golden Globes have given us so many magical gifts, like that five minutes of Kristen Wiig-Will Ferrell wackiness and the surprise appearance by Lincoln-stumping former President Bill Clinton and that coming out/not coming out maybe-drunk, still amazing speech by Jodie Foster. So let's celebrate the added wonderment of watching the Globes in the internet age: Reliving the best, most random moments of sloshed-celebrity shenanigans as immortalized in animated GIF form! First, let Best Song winner Adele and her impromptu Skyfall high-five with James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, delight you all over again.
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.
Based on the incredible volume of Ryan Seacrest's hair, it must be Golden Globes time! And for the next hour, Movieline will be bringing you our highly subjective play-by-play of the festivities. And at 8, join us as we live-blog the awards. See you after the jump. more »
The Oscar Index’s head is spinning. What critics organization didn’t announce their nominees or award-winners this week? On Thursday it was the Golden Globes, on Wednesday the SAGs, and Monday the AFI and BFCA. The Boston, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, St. Louis and Washington critics associations also weighed in with their picks.
But critics don’t vote for the Academy Awards, so much of this will have little bearing on who will be nominated for an Academy Award; not Lincoln’s seven Golden Globe nominations, not Dwight Henry’s Best Supporting Actor win from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for Beasts of the Southern Wild, and not the Washington D.C. Film Critics Association’s pick of Zero Dark Thirty as the year’s best film.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are not only co-hosts of the 70th Golden Globes this year, they're also competitors. Both were nominated for Best Actress in a Television Musical or Comedy, with Fey duking it out with her counterpart for 30 Rock, while Poehler is up for the award for Park and Recreation.

But while the co-hosts won't conceivably know the results until the envelope opens at the ceremony on January 13th, the pair are busy working together in the lead-up to the big event, and no doubt re-calling those good ol' Saturday Night Live days.
In this promo for the Globes, the duo are dressed in matching golden sparkly dresses and they both dish out cheesy Brit(ish) accents (until they don't). Maybe they're commenting on the resurgence of British-speak in Hollywood films reminiscent of the very early "golden days" of Hollywood? Who knows, but here's a funny look at what may bode well for the Globes telecast after the New Year.

Happy Golden Globes Nomination Day everyone! While you mull over this year's crop of obvious picks ("Argo f*** yourself," Academy) and not so obvious surprises (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Hope Springs, Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi? Are we really doing this, HFPA?) let's delight in the reactions of the chosen few who'll vie for Golden Globes glory on Sunday, January 13. (Updated as nominee reactions roll in...)
Early Thursday morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its Golden Globe nominees, and, as you might expect, there were some surprises. Thanks to the Academy's decision to unveil its Oscar nominations on Jan. 10, three days before Globe winners are revealed on Jan. 13, today's nominations will have less bearing than usual on Oscar jockeying. But don't let anyone kid you. Academy voters may have nothing in common with HFPA members, but they aren't impervious to the media's perception of who's hot, cold or no longer in the running. more »
