Some things happened at the Golden Globes last night. None of them merit their own article, or even a dedicated paragraph, so I’ll give the goings-on bullet points, some of which might even be complete sentences. Ok. I’ll give every bullet point it’s own complete, borderline run-on, sentence.

  • Jennifer Lawrence photobombed Taylor Swift on the red carpet. (Side note: Awards shows HATE Taylor Swift.)
  • Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were incredibly funny.
  • 12 Years a Slave won Best Drama, which wasn’t a surprise, and American Hustle won Best Comedy, which kind of was.
  • Jacqueline Bisset was drunk.
  • Alfonso Cuaron got Best Director for Gravity.
  • Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence both got Golden Globes for their work in American Hustle, baffling audiences as to why Jennifer Lawrence would walk away with only one award for the night, seeing as how they give out more than a dozen.
  • Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey both got Globes for their Dallas Buyers Club work, which might mean that Jared Leto maybe would consider giving up that godforesaken 30 Seconds to Mars crap and sticking with acting.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio got his Globe for Wolf of Wall Street, which marks the first time someone’s been given an award for doing tons of blow, fucking hookers, and cursing. That I know of.
  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine won Best TV Comedy, which surprised people.
  • Meryl Streep got her 28th nomination, which I am told is pretty impressive.
  • Amy Poehler won for Parks and Recreation, which surprised people only in as much as it meant people still watched Parks and Recreation.
  • The Red Carpet apparently smelled terrible because sprinklers got the carpet all wet, and wet carpet smell is apparently the worst thing that can happen to celebrities and entertainment journalists.
  • E! listed Michael J. Fox‘s 1991 diagnosis of Parkinsons as a “Fun Fact,” which is completely hilarious, only because I see the editorial team at E! believing that every fact in the world is “fun” until proven otherwise. They apologized, but you can’t make something unfun after it happens.
  • After the ceremony, many celebrities went to parties, where they put on big smiles with their awards, drank champagne like the world was going to end, and a few probably probably kept sneaking back to hospitality suites at the Beverly Hilton to do monster rails to blow.
  • All in all, it was a magical night, and a grateful nation thanks celebrities for being so damn awesome all the time.

Welp, the Golden Globes nominations happened this morning. 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle lead the pack with seven nominations each with nods for best picture, best director as well as acting nominations for everyone except Jeremy Renner. He’s like the Hawkeye of the Golden Globes. Behind the Candelabra lead the nominations on the television side of things complete with a much deserved nod to Rob Lowe for his zany portrayal of the Janice Dickinson-faced plastic surgeon. If Rob Lowe doesn’t win, we riot. Or at least ineffectually try to flip a plate over on my coffee table with my stockinged foot.

In rare news, a hosting selection made by an awards show was both funny and likable enough to come back and do it all again next year. And the year after. I guess they don’t want to encumber the awards process past 2015 with the expectation that Miley Cyrus will become REALLY respectable and will be a no-brainer choice.

A close second in the running was simply abandoning the “awards” aspect of the Golden Globes, and having studio execs line up to stab Seth McFarlane and Ricky Gervais with letter openers while Billy Crystal runs around pretending to be an old Jewish man, which he now is.

Good choice by the Globes, and we look forward to them not only not sucking, but being actually, genuinely funny.

The post A Look Back At The Golden Globes’ Craziest Moments appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
While the Golden Globes might be the second most prestigious film awards out there, they’ve always existed in the shadow of the Oscars. However, what the Golden Globes may lack in terms of respect, they more than make up for in spontenaity, having embraced a culture of improvisation and spontaneity that their older brother continues to condemn.

With the news of the nominees today, let’s look back at some of the most controversial and entertaining moments during the Golden Globe ceremonies over the years.

1982 – Richard Attenborough

I would like to start off the list with Richard Attenborough’s now-infamous “Ghandi sucks” speech. Upon winning the award for Best Director for the epic biopic of the Indian icon, Richard Attenborough held his award to the sky in triumph, then, smiling, said, “I guess this means I can finally stop talking about fucking Ghandi 24 hours a day.”

He then broke into an offensive Indian accent which is now believed to have been the inspiration for Apu on The Simpsons, during which the cameras cut to Sir Ben Kingsley in the audience, who appeared to be laughing uproariously throughout the insensitive rant.

1990 – Ted Danson

Ted Danson receives his second Golden Globe award for his performance as Sam in Cheers. He gives a gracious and thoughtful acceptance speech, only to have it overshadowed by popping an enormous “fear boner” halfway through his acceptance. Mortified, Danson stalls and stammers onstage until Clint Eastwood emerges from the audience to escort him off stage. According to a stagehand they passed walking offstage, Clint Eastwood whispered to Danson, “One way or another, you’re going to have to get rid of that thing.”

Both actors disappear from the public eye for six weeks, reappearing together in a little-seen “Tour Nova Scotia!” television commercial.

(Note: Following this incident, the Awards producers worked to buck the notion that the Golden Globes were the “Deadwood of awards ceremonies” by sedating all nominees in attendance. It is for this reason that there was little excitement in the awards until the Department of Justice put an end to the practice in 2003.)

The Golden Globe nominations are hot off the presses. As they should be, the film nominees seem to be a little less highbrow than the Oscar-worthy names that have been bandied about. See you in hell, Tree of Life and The Artist!

I’m appreciating the love for 50/50, a film that, in my opinion, struck just the right balance of funny and touching. Your impression of the film nominations may vary.

TV is historically more of a mixed-bag, and the nominations for Boss and American Horror Story for best drama, to the exclusion of Breaking Bad (seriously? No Breaking Bad?), and the inclusion of Zooey Deschanel as “best actress” seem pretty dubious. Oh well. It’s the foreign press. That’s probably why The Borgias made the cut. Lousy Borigas.

The post They Like A Little Abuse: Ricky Gervais Back To Host Golden Globes appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
After Ricky Gervais’s last stint as host of The Golden Globes, the media made it seem like he was to be tarred and feathered outside of The Ivy. Last year, Gervais used the show as his opportunity to roast trainwrecks like Mel Gibson and Robert Downey, Jr.. This caused monocles to pop out of eyes and pearls to be clutched throughout Hollywood. In fact, a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association told the press, “Ricky will not be invited back to host the show next year, for sure. For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated. He humiliated the organization last night and went too far with several celebrities whose representatives have already called to complain.” Oooooh no, an anonymous source. Who could it have been who said these things? All the HFPA has to do is find the member who overuses the phrase “for sure.” Open and shut.

At any rate, bad news for Brett Ratner because he’s about to get roasted. Gervais is indeed back to host The Golden Globes for a third year. The comedian announced the news via Twitter with the post: “Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true).”Let’s all look forward to more uproar. Unless, of course, he shares some controversial opinions about rehearsals. (Deadline)

Despite the outrage caused by Ricky Gervais's roasting of the Golden Globes attendees, they've asked him to host a third time.

Hey, Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Looks like you like a little tough talk, don’t ya? Yeah, you do. You’re a dirty little Association.

I’m sure you recall the OUTRAGE caused by Ricky Gervais lazily acknowledging that Charlie Sheen is a drug addict, Kim Cattrall is wrinkly, and Hugh Hefner’s penis looks like a nine day-old 7-Eleven hot dog. Immediately after the show, the HFPA spoke out to declare he had ‘crossed the line’ and won’t be invited back to host. Then the ratings came in.

Lo and behold, Gervais has been invited back to host. The comedian tells UK‘s Heat magazine, “The ratings were up again and the organizers asked me to consider a third year. I don’t think I should. I don’t know what I could do better. I certainly couldn’t get more press for them, that’s for sure. You know me. Two seasons is enough.”

That’s not to say he can’t come back a third time but refer to it as a Christmas special. Sheen always acts up around the holidays. (via Vulture)

BAFTA Noms Not Surprisingly Favor The British http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bafta-noms-not-surprisingly-favor-the-british/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bafta-noms-not-surprisingly-favor-the-british/#comments Tue, 18 Jan 2011 22:19:38 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17724 The BAFTA nominations were announced today with little fanfare, which actually happens every year.

The BAFTA nominations were announced today (via Entertainment Weekly), with little fanfare, probably because everyone was recovering their dropped monocles from their champagne flutes after Ricky Gervais‘ hosting detail at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Well, the human spirit will not relent in the cause of providing overpaid, overexposed actors with more arbitrary congratulations.

Another reason the BAFTA nominations didn’t make much noise is the fact that they never really do. They have an (understandable) tendency to pile on the praise for native Brits, so much so that they even have a two categories strictly for Brits. I mean, the Oscars are certainly ethnocentric to America, but we don’t explicitly say it. That’s just tacky.

A third reason that the BAFTA noms aren’t shaking the earth today is that they’re not very interesting. It hasn’t exactly been an awards season rife with surprises. In fact, the only snub on this list that’s immediately apparent is the exclusion of The Fighter for True Grit. So as much as the Brits like to praise their own, they clearly HATE CHRISTIAN BALE. (Except that the nominated him for Best Supporting Actor. So perhaps they are CONFLICTED ABOUT CHRISTIAN BALE.)

Here’s a full list of the nominees. It’s no big departure from any other list you’ve seen in the past few months, but enjoy the last category, where, for reasons indeterminate, they try to sneak in an award for teeny-boppers. Very droll, Britain. Very droll, indeed. Cheerio.

The 9 Biggest ‘WTF’ Moments In Golden Globe History http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-9-biggest-wtf-moments-in-golden-globe-history/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-9-biggest-wtf-moments-in-golden-globe-history/#comments Fri, 14 Jan 2011 20:42:38 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=16802 A lot of people hate the Golden Globes, but I accept the show for what it truly is: masturbation. And you know what? Masturbation can be fun. Watch these 9 clips and see for yourself.

The Golden Globes are a joke, and everyone knows it. A lot of people like to get worked up about this fact. I used to be one of those people. But now, thanks in part to Wellbutrin, I no longer care, and I accept the show for what it truly is: masturbation.

But you know what? Masturbation can be fun, and the Golden Globes are no exception. Throughout the years, they have made for some pretty entertaining moments, which is probably due, in no small part, to the fact that the attendees are allowed to drink. So rather than bitching and moaning about how the whole thing is pointless (as compared to what, life?), lets just sit back and enjoy these nine ‘WTF’ moments from Golden Globes past.

Scarlett Johansson Groped
Back in 2006, Isaac Mizrahi had the pleasure of interviewing Scarlett Johansson as she walked the red carpet. Mizahi, who is openly gay, took the liberty of groping her left breast as he complimented her dress. If I touched Johansson’s tits, they’d lock me away. But just because this guy loves boners he can fondle her with impunity. What a crock of sh*t! Johansson later said the incident was in bad taste. I’m assuming she was talking about the award show in general, not just the boob grab.

You know, thirty years ago, people would have hated Isaac Mizrahi for being openly gay. Today, people only hate him because he works for E! That’s what I call progress.

Christine Lahti Is Too Busy Taking a Dump
In 1998, Christine Lahti was honored with a Golden Globe Award for her work on the medical drama, “Chicago Hope,” which is better known as the ugly cousin of “ER.” But when it came time to accept the statue, she was no where to be found. As it turns out, she was in the bathroom dropping a deuce (that means pooping), which is a fitting metaphor for the Golden Globes. But at least the gaffe allowed the irrepressible Robin Williams to make an inbreeding joke at the expense of the South. He was between that and a joke about Asians, but ultimate went with the Southern joke, probably cause Asians know kung-fu and shit. Am I right? Am I right? Stereotyping is fun!

Ving Rhames Gives Away His Award
It’s rare to see a genuine heartfelt moment at an awards show, especially a show as contrived as the Golden Globes. But in 1998, Ving Rhames was overcome with emotion after winning an award for his performance in the HBO movie, Don King: Only In America. Rhames thanked his fellow nominees, and singled out actor Jack Lemmon in particular. After calling Lemmon to the stage, Rhames insisted he take the award instead, and after much coaxing, Lemmon obliged. It was a memorable moment, sullied only by the fact that the award is meaningless.

The Rat Pack Storms the Stage
In 1958, Frank Sinatra and company were at the Golden Globe awards, drinking heavily. Apparently, they weren’t to thrilled with whoever was hosting the event. Maybe it was the alcohol, or the fact that Frank Sinatra was allowed to do whatever the hell he wanted, but the group decided to storm the stage and act as MCs for the rest of the show. It went over so well, that the group was asked to return the following year, or at least that’s what Moviefone tells me. Sorry there’s no clip, but the Golden Globes weren’t televised until 1964.

Tom Arnold Acts Like a Coked Up Asshole
In this classic clip from the 1996 show, Tom Arnold made a complete ass of himself while trying to mock his ex-wife, comedian Rosanne (I’m not sure if she has a last name at this point). The actor’s first joke to actress Teri Hatcher (want to be in a movie?) came off as creepy, and the rest of his act went over about as well as a Jew joke at an AIPAC convention. Watch for yourself, if you have the stomach. It’s amazing that Ricky Gervais can pull off this type of humor.

Isaiah Washington Drops the F-Bomb (No, The Other F-Bomb)
When being questioned about behind-the-scenes tension on the set of “Grey’s Anatomy,” actor Isaiah Washington decided to set the record straight once and for all, and inject a little levity into the situation at the same time. Unfortunately, his use of the word “fag” went over about as well as a gay joke at Elton John‘s house. Wow, I’m on a real simile kick. At any rate, Washington was booted from the show shortly after. Blame it on the Gay Mafia.

Ricky Gervais Mocks Mel Gibson
At the time, Ricky Gervais’ joke about Mel Gibson’s drinking was hilarious. Just one year later, it seems even more profound. While I doubt Mel will be attending this year’s ceremony, I’m 100% certain Gervais will have something good in store for him. Blow jobs, domestic violence, racial slurs; the possibilities are endless.

Bette Midler Talks About Her Breasts, Mimics Fellatio
Some guys think Bette Midler is sexy. We call them gay guys. I’m not saying she isn’t talented, but Bathhouse Betty has all the sex appeal of Kevin James, and smaller tits to boot. That’s what makes this clip from 1980 so disturbing.

Pia Zadora’s Husband Buys Her An Award
In what is widely considered the biggest WTF moment in Golden Globe history, Pia Zadora took home the “Newcomer-of-the-Year” award in 1981. While that might not seem like a big deal, the film she won for, Butterfly, had not yet been released, meaning she wasn’t even eligible for the award.

As it turns out, Zadora’s husband, multimillionaire Meshulam Riklis, had basically bought off the judges with expensive trips to Vegas and lavish meals at his home. Since then, the Golden Globes have had about as much credibility as the AVN awards. But in all fairness, the Golden Globes have bigger whores.

That's it. Play with it...nice and slow.

Everyone knows that the Golden Globes are a joke, so why not have some joke quotes to go with them? Here are ten truthful celebrity reactions we’d like to have seen.


While I’m honored to be nominated for best actress in a comedy, there’s nothing funny about a film with a $100 million budget taking in only $16.5 million in its opening weekend.
-Angelina Jolie, The Tourist


I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for recognizing the importance of a film that allows hipsters to experience the plot of “How I Met Your Mother” without having to subject themselves to network TV.
-Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine


Who thinks I’m Michael Cera now, bitch? Scott Pilgrim vs. my dick!
-Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network


I’m nominated for Alice too? Quit yankin’ my c*ck, buddy. Nobody would pay for that nomination.
-Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland


I’m honored, but I’m no hero. I’m just a guy who got Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis to go at it on film. Wait a minute…come to think of it I am a goddamn hero!
-Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan


I’d like to thank my talented writing staff. Without them, none of this would have ever been possible. Ha, just kidding!

-Frank Darabont, “The Walking Dead”


Who’d I have to sleep with to get a nomination? No, seriously. My agent told me I’d have to sleep with someone.

-Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice


Oh, good for meeeeeeee!

-Christian Bale, The Fighter


Don’t tell me not to fly, I’ve simply got to! If someone takes a spill it’s me and– (line “disconnected”)
-Chris Colfer, “Glee”


It’s an honor just to be nominated. We weren’t nominated? Screw this, let’s go score some coke. Yo drive. Cause I said so, you fat f#$%!
-Charlie Sheen, “Two and a Half Men

Deep breath before his Mel Gibson material.

When Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes earlier this year, he kept saying he’d never be invited back. He let loose with celebrity roasting, but now he is coming back to host again on January 16. Gervais told a conference call full of reporters that he plans to be even bolder with his jokes this time.

“I just think I can really go out and really throw away the shackles of worry,” Gervais said. “I don’t mean I’m going to go get drunk and have no planning or input, but I think I can certainly have more fun with it and I can have more fun with the room.”

Whoever is tapped to present at the show will likely be the prime targets for Gervais. “My favorite things I said were probably the introductions, the one liners about the people. The Mel Gibson gag, the Paul McCartney gag, the Colin Farrell gag, the Jennifer Aniston gag. If I can get more of that type of thing that’s cheeky, a little bit naughty and risqué but not nasty, then I’ll be happy but I think I can take it a bit further. I think people know where I’m coming from now. I’ve done enough of these award things like the Emmys and the Globes where they know what I’m doing. Hopefully I won’t blow that either way saying something that’s so horrendous I’ll never work again. Even worse, doing something that’s so anodyne I’ll never work again.”

For all his fearless ribbing of his Hollywood cohorts, Gervais actually felt he held back last year. He won’t make that mistake again. “I also gave myself this weird restriction. I wrote it a few days before in about an hour, all the lines. If you noticed, all the lines are about the people that are about to come out. I realized I can reference anyone in the room. I probably made it harder than myself so I’m going to have even more fun with it, go a bit further, push the boundaries a bit more. I think you always should. What’s the worst that could happen? I didn’t expect to be invited back a second time and I won’t do it a third, so I’m going to go for it.”

Gervais is equally happy with a shocking remark as he is with a round of applause. So not everything he says will have to be funny, as long as it makes a point. “Yeah, because I think comedy and drama are different branches of the same tree. It doesn’t matter whether you’re watching a horror film or hearing a joke. It’s the surprise that’s the good bit, the thing you didn’t expect. Comedy is a release. Let’s not forget that. That’s why we do it because it’s the industry that’s built out of humor obviously. The reason we have humor is to get through. The reason we have humor in our evolution is to get us through adversity.”

If he hurts anyone’s feelings, Gervais does want them to know he’s coming from a place of love. Like any good roast, he teases out of affection. Still, sometimes he shocks himself.

“Oh, well, you have these dark thoughts and you go why did that come into my brain? As I said before, there is a constant fight in my head with what’ll go down well and what won’t. It comes from a good or a bad place. If people know where you’re coming from and what the target really is, you can get away with murder. Cue O.J. Simpson joke. I don’t use it as a platform to get political or get my own back on the world. I’m hosting a party. It’s a televised industry party so you’ve got to keep it light, but as I say, that’s not to say you can go out and do awfully flat broad anodyne homogenized reworked material. I think you can be original, push the boundaries a little bit and still come in lined with taste and decency. But you can’t win. Everyone’s got their own little cause. Everything has got what they find offensive.”

As the star on the American remake of Gervais’ baby, The Office, Steve Carell always has to ready himself for Gervais’ public appearances. On this call, Gervais admitted he only has kind thoughts towards Carell.

“Steve Carell is like a goose that lays golden eggs. Now we need some other schmuck to get up at 6 in the morning for seven years.”

The Golden Globes airs Jan. 16 on NBC.
