So many things about the Golden Globes made me go hmmm…

Dear John,

Thanks for your comment.  I’m sure you know the saying, “if the shoe fits…” and if in your case it doesn’t, then you shouldn’t feel resentful at my post at all.  If you read all my posts relating to gun violence you’ll see there is a common thread, people who are committing these crimes are mentally unsound, this is a major issue with the screening process, which you seem to agree with.  So yay us, on one same page.  If you’ve got your shit together, and don’t plan on losing it any time soon, then continue on using your gun responsibly.  In the mean time I will continue to have the opinion that nobody needs a gun.  But that’s my opinion, which I’m entitled to.  Thanks for reading, and thanks also for the comment.

Moving on, Golden Globes “hmmms…”

Jenna Bush Hager on the red carpet?  I was shocked.  I thought for sure, with Hollywood being so liberal that she would get snubbed on the carpet, but to my surprise she did not.  Stars actually stopped and answered her questions while she grabbed their shoulders and petted them.  WTAF??

I loved Kerry Washington’s subtle, yet clear schooling of her on the carpet.  Making it incredibly clear which side of the political fence she stands on.  This was GOLD.  If you haven’t seen it, google it, try to find it, it’s worth the time it will more than likely take you to locate.

Something that made me go “hmmm” many times during the night.  The cut out shoulder trend.  WTAF?  I don’t understand what that look is trying to say…does anybody know what’s up with that?  If you do know why so many dresses had sleeves but no shoulders, please let me know.  Thanks.

Ryan Reynolds really bad spray tan.

Sofia Vergara’s equally bad spray tan.

Jimmy Fallon’s bit…I have to say, I love him, and was truly looking forward to him hosting.  After watching him host, I must now say, if he never does it again, I’ll be just fine with that.  You know who I think should host next year, Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell.  Their two minutes on stage together was reminiscent of the incredible Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  It makes me wonder if the producers are already speaking to their people to lock them down???

I’m not a yellow fan, so I didn’t really get the trend of there being so many yellow dresses…

What the fuck was Billy Bob Thornton yammering about??

Also, what was Tom Hiddleston going on about???  Was he in a round about way patting himself on the back?

And in closing, is it just me, or has Brad Pitt not looked that good in many, many, years???

Those are my top things that made me go “hmmm” from last the 74th Golden Globes.  What were yours???

This is not something that made me go “hmmm” but how bad-ass is Meryl Streep?!?!  Just sayin.  Brilliant.  Elegant.  Passionate.  Strong.  Bold.  Love.  Love.  Love.

  1. I must say I only saw part of the show, I usually watch the pre show for the interviews but I was not too impressed by some of the interviewers. Best part was seeing Brad Pitt looking so good, best in years I think. XX

  2. I too am so proud of Merle Streep! She stated what 60% of the population feel and she said it such grace and class! I’ve always loved her both on and off the stage. She’s a class act, that’s for sure!

  3. There’s not enough room on the internet for me to go off on how fan-f*cking-tabulous Meryl Streep is! I sat on my couch, chanting “Go! Go!” with each new sentence she uttered. Simply exquisite.

    I love Jimmy and therefore was also very disappointed. Oh well – let’s home Kristen and Steve are in line for that gig because that would be *sweet*!

    I may be biased here because of my adoration, but while I too though Hiddleston’s speech was “odd”, he *did* apologize on his website:

    “I just wanted to say… I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed. In truth, I was very nervous, and my words just came out wrong. Sincerely, my only intention was to salute the incredible bravery and courage of the men and women who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, who continue to find hope and joy in the most difficult conditions. I apologise that my nerves got the better of me.”

    Some folks on other websites are claiming this to be a non-apology, but I don’t know. He says he agrees with why he was called out, he explained what he was trying to say, and he said he was sorry. Others may disagree with me, but from all accounts of people that I know who have worked with him, he’s a pretty lovely man. I’m going to cut him some slack.

    Let me close with “Meryl Streep for President!”
