My Late Night Golden Globes Rodeo

Jack?
Warning:  I have been building up some bitchiness and here, I unleash it on "Argo," "Lincoln" and "The Life of Pi."

Hi all. I've been in a creative slump lately, so forgive me for my silence. I may have broken my brain. However, the Golden Globes have become my favorite awards show over the years....so I can't NOT post about them. Plus, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting them in 2013. That must be in the Bible, somewhere.

So here are the nominations that just came out and my profound, half-awake thoughts on them:


- I like how "The Dark Knight" was snubbed from nearly everything. I read this might have something to do with the Aurora shooting. That's horrible, but could be the case.

- I like how Anne Hathaway is still existing. You go girl!

- Who gives a shit about "Argo?" Or "Lincoln?" Why are you people all acting like "Lincoln" is groundbreaking WE ALL KNOW HOW IT ENDS

- Who is Jessica Chastain? I keep forgetting who she is.

- What a year for Jennifer Lawrence! Perhaps "Silver Linings Playbook" is only bearable for her. Thanks, Bret Easton Ellis! 

- "Rust and Bone" got nominated for foreign selection and Marion also received a nod. I don't actually think she'll win the award, but it's obvious "Rust and Bone" WILL win something.

- ahaha poor "Anna Karenina." "Hi! We got snubbed in every category BUT score. Someone call Keira!" 

- seriously:  why is Ben Affleck still relevant?

- Ben, don't take that the wrong way. I love you and Jennifer Garner.

- Is it just me or are the nominees soooooooooooo boring this year? Gosh, maybe Maggie Smith will have a wardrobe malfunction or something.

- Christoph Waltz got nominated again. Surprise, surprise! 

- "Life of Pi" and "Hobbit." Two books I hated adapted into movies this year. To quote "Heathers" on these films in general:  "fuck me gently with a chainsaw, do I look like Mother Teresa to you?"

- in the New York Times piece I link to, there's a big old typo. FYI. We're human. It happens. Unless the New York Times is staffed by microwaves with souls...

Okay I'm done. I hereby declare the TV winners of the Golden Globes ahead of time, because no one cares:

"Girls"
Zooey Deschanel
Anything on AMC
the last season of "30 Rock."
Think about it! 


p.s. this was a lot longer, but blogger ate my post. see the nominees here

  2. Cloud Atlas got snubbed. That movie was primo. Skyfall, for all it's a James Bond film, was also fantastic.

    AND WHERE IS MICHAEL SHEEN'S NOMINATION?

"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.

"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

"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:
