6 Random Globe Notes

1. Ricky Gervais had some decent jokes, others were dumb and distasteful (I never thought I would ever say that word.)

2. "Avatar" won best picture/drama and James Cameron best director. I confess I didn't see that coming. That better be one Orgasmic movie. It's weird because I thought they just made a movie called "Avatar:The Last Airbender" based on the cartoon show and directed by M. Night Shamalyan. (spelling doesn't count.)

3. "Dexter" won two globes, one going to my idol, Michael C. Hall, and one to the legend John Lithgow. This made my night. "Dexter" is so good, no joke.

4. "Mad Men" won another award or something, and I don't think anyone thought twice about it.

5. Lea Michele did not win for "Glee" as best actress in a comedy series, sad face, but Toni Collette won for "The United States of Tara!" I heard this show described as something nobody watches, but it's amazing. I have to see it.

6. As I predicted two months ago, Juliana Margulies won for "The Good Wife." There was never a second of doubt in my mind. (And I haven't even seen the damn show. That's how good she is.)

**And as an unnumbered note: Felicity Huffman was a Klutz when it came to public speaking. Great Actress, no mic skills. what's up?

QATFYG: Anybody notice anything weird with the ceremony?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
