I've mentioned before that I'm not a huge fan of awards shows. I think I need to amend that statement because I love the Golden Globes! I'm not sure if it's because everyone is having a great time drinking, eating, hanging out with friends and generally looking aMAZing, or maybe it's because it covers both movies and television - the best of both worlds if you ask me. Whatever the reason, I really enjoyed this year's broadcast. Ricky Gervais cracks my shit up even with his outrageously inappropriate comments. In case you missed it, here's a little sampling.
I will admit I didn't watch the live broadcast - not only would Mr. Latchkey have a complete meltdown if I made him sit through three hours of not being able to channel surf, but I still find bits of these types of shows a tad tedious and I must have the ability to fast forward through the crap I deem, well, crap. I definitely don't need to see the Hollywood Foreign Press president who looks like he needs two handlers to walk him out onto the stage, ala Weekend at Bernie's. And although I do love Robert DeNiro, I didn't have the 874 hours available to watch the whole Cecil B. DeMille Award presentation/acceptance.
This year's Golden Globes made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me drool on myself... hello Johnny Depp [who, btw, was nominated twice in one category and couldn't get it done! tsk tsk JD, no blowjob for you] and of course, the Preh-tay... but we'll get to him a little later, I promise. But to tide you over, here you go... don't say I never gave you anything.
So where was I? He makes my brain void of any intelligent thought. My highlights of the night were definitely Katey Sagal winning for Sons of Anarchy - such a great show that doesn't get enough attention. Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch winning for Glee and Glee winning also for Best TV Musical or Comedy. I love that show like a fat kid loves cake and I have to say it made me weepy that it did so well against some pretty heavy-hitting competition. Although I haven't seen Toy Story 3 yet, I was excited to see it kick ass in the animated film category - sometimes sequels don't do so well. The dude who accepted the award (I can't remember his name for the life of me) said this about Toy Story which was so spot on - "it's an animated movie that beats with a human heart." Awwww.... *sniff sniff*
Watching the GGs also made me realize there are a LOT of fucking movies out there that I need to see! The Fighter, The King's Speech, Social Network, Black Swan (although this one scares me just a bit), The Kids are Alright, Love and Other Drugs, Blue Valentine... when will I find the time?! And did anyone notice who won the award for Original Score in a Motion Picture? Motherfucking Trent Reznor scored the Social Network, I had no idea... one more reason I need to see this film, and give my tired copy of Eclipse a much needed rest. (Sorry, I've always had a soft spot for NIN.)
And so I waited, and waited for that one award. You know the one? The one you wouldn't have given two shits about any other year. The one where you'll normally get up to pee or get a snack when they announce it. The award for Best Foreign Language Film... fucking yawn. They made me wait exactly 1 hour and 35 minutes to ogle the Preh-tay and it was so worth it. I think.
And ah ma GAWD he's so beautiful I had to pause and stare. It was over so fucking quick I wanted to tit-punch someone. There was no witty banter, no joking around, just wham bam thank you ma'am... here are the nominees, and the winner is... ya, I have no idea who the winner was. Or the nominees for that matter. I was just focused on the jaw and the suit and the eyes and fuck, was there even someone else on the stage with him?
I guess I've made you wait long enough for the pictures and videos. So without further ado, I present your reward for sitting through my rambling Golden Globe jibber jabber. Sit back, grab your favorite battery-powered buddy and enjoy an extremely handsome, Gucci-clad RPattz in a navy blue suit that will make your panties disintegrate. No captions needed. Just pure, unadulterated, smoldering hotness.
Aaaaand the after party. Because you know Rob wouldn't go to an awards show without attending some post show soirees. I love that he spent most of the time hanging with his on-screen dad, PFach. If you ask me, KStew probably told Peter to keep an eye on him, and by that she meant, don't let him leave your side or else. Whatever... if I ran into that dynamic duo at a party, I'd totally have a stroke and die right in front of them, probably pooping my pants in the process. I bet they'd never forget me after that though, right?
And last but certainly not least, the videos. I generally, as you may know, get annoyed with the asinine questions asked of the Precious so I tend to try and find interviewers that I don't want to shank. I really enjoy both the chick from Access Hollywood and Josh Horowitz from MTV and it obviously appears that Rob is comfortable talking to them. Can I just add that the mouth breathing waste of oxygen that interviewed him on the NBC portion of the red carpet was a complete moron? And her dress was fugly too. Enjoy... we get bits of news for Water for Elephants, Bel Ami, Cosmopolis and Breaking Dawn... I love his laugh. I want to make his laugh my ringtone or text alert or something. It makes me smile.
So did you watch the show? Other than the obvious Rob sightings and such, what were your favorite parts of the Golden Globes?
All pictures and videos of Rob from Robsessed where you can go to find loads and loads of other awesome footage and photos! It's a virtual Rob-a-palooza over there. Holy motherfucking yum!
