2013 Golden Globes

In case any of you missed it, the “biggest” party of the  year in Hollywood took place on Sunday evening at the Beverly Hilton.  That’s right, the night when Hollywood comes out to shine in a more  relaxed, fun environment. Ladies and gentlemen, this was the Golden  Globe Awards. As per usual, the red carpet is rolled out and the stars  are dressed in their finest with accessories to boot. On various channels,  fashion experts comment on how people are dressed and interviews are  candid and free. But the show must go on, and on it did, with a flourish  no less.

Like most Golden Globes, the show definitely didn’t disappoint. Missing  was British comedian Ricky Gervais. And though he was very funny over  the previous two shows, plus had plenty of “make the audience cringe”  moments, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) decided to go  with a pair of new presenters this time with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  Let’s take a moment to give a round of applause to the new hosts of  the Golden Globes because they were absolutely phenomenal. From their  opening monologues (poor James Cameron) to their drinking post-losing  for Best Actress in a TV Comedy, they absolutely controlled the stage  and the show. It goes to show that improvisation is invaluable as well  as having fun and not making the show about you only enhances the host’s  performance and the overall success of the show. Here’s to the two funny  women returning next year!

There were so many wonderful moments at this year’s Golden Globes.  The top had to be Jodi Foster being presented the Cecil B. Demille award.  Robert Downey Jr. had the honor of announcing her before her body of  work was shown to the captive audience. On accepting her award, she  officially “comes out,” saying she came out “about a  thousand years ago back in the stone age” and gives thanks to her  former partner with whom she shares two children. She also gave an utterly  emotional and heartfelt thanks to her mother, who suffers from dementia,  which left many wet eyes in the audience, mine included. A great speech  from a great actress. Probably the best presenters of the night were,  hands down, Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell, presenting for Best Actress  in Movie, Comedy or Musical. A great improvised scene in which neither  actor had actually “watched” the films ahead of time (as they  were supposed to)…. it’s one of those things you have to watch live.  Hilarious!

Now, all of that aside, what you all really want to know is who actually  won in each category. So, without further ado, your 2013 Golden Globe  winners!

It was a great night for film and television at  the Beverly Hilton, as it is each year. The sad part is we have to wait  a whole year until the next party. Until then, we’ll have plenty of  great entertainment to watch as these amazing actors, directors, producers  and all involved with production continue to create and entertain the  world each and every day.

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler nailed it and would loved to see them playing off each other! Brillant! There were some great and heartfelt speeches. Such a great show. Always the best! The fashion wasn’t too bad too!
