The Golden Globes 2013 – A Trip To Weirdsville
I turned on the Golden Globe Awards a few times last night, in between doing laundry still left over from our trip to Jamaica - seriously, how many t-shirts can one person wear in a week? – and trying to watch The Bachelor online. I missed the first episode. Anyway, it didn’t work. I live in Canada.
What I did see of the Golden Globes, I found very odd. From Matt Lauer standing with his arms crossed the entire time on the red carpet, to Tommy Lee Jones’ grumpy cat face during Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig’s spoof of the best actress in a musical or comedy segment, it all seemed so strange to me. It was like an episode of the Twilight Zone.
These are some of the things that really stood out…
Denzel Washington was a lot less cool in real life than I thought he’d be. His daughter says he’s a nerd, and now I believe it. There goes a few late night fantasies down the tubes.
Adele was just the opposite. I’d love to be friends with her. She seems like a really fun person. Plus, she’s not afraid to use the word “piss” on national television – I think that says a lot.
Now, Hugh Jackman seemed like a pretty normal guy until he laughed during his acceptance speech for best actor in a musical or comedy (at 3:20 in the following video) – HA, HA, HA, HA, HA – and then I thought he was an alien.
I thought wow, Daniel Day Lewis is probably really smart – but then, aren’t all people with English accents proper geniuses?
Last but not least, there was Jodie Foster and her Lifetime Achievement Award – bless her heart. This is what I got from that part of the show…
And you say Jodie officially “came out” as a lesbian to the world during the show? I missed that. She was blabbering on for so long that I just tuned her out.
