The Globes

I watched most of the Golden Globe Awards last night. I started falling asleep towards the end but I caught most of it. Here are a few of my thoughts.

First of all, what were Lara Flynn Boyle and Sharon Stone thinking when they got dressed? Sharon always looks amazing... and she did from the waist up... but what was she thinking with the stilletto cowboy boots. That was nothing but wrong! And I can't even pick apart Lara Flynn Boyle's outfit.... it looked like she was trying to be Bjork when she had the swan outfit on. But there's a difference, Bjork can pull that stuff off... Lara can't! She looked like an anorexic in a really bad four year old's ballet outfit.... with boobs. Very strange.

Secondly, did you hear Dick Clark talking to Leonardo DiCaprio on the red carpet? He said... and I quote, "I'm standing here with one of the stars from Gangs of New York and I have one question for you Leonard". Leonard? I almost peed my pants... that was so funny.

Thirdly, when Brendon Frasier asked everyone to salute HIM. Oooops, that was a slip, yet totally loosened up the very dry audience.

Ok- for those of you who saw Chicago.... I am not going to knock Renee's performance because I thought she did a good job, especially for never having done a singing or dancing role. For that matter, she has never taken lessons for either of them! So, in that respect, she was great. However, I don't think she should have one the Globe. I feel the Globe should have gone to Catherine Zeta Jones. She was flawless AND was so out of her skin. Renee plays the same card in every movies she's in. I was dissappointed that Catherine didn't win, but, I really enjoyed Renee's speech. I thought it was heartful. In fact, I enjoyed everyone's speech.... especially when Richard Gere thanked Kander and Eb. I think "film" people tend to forget the original composers, writers, and choreographers.

All in all, I thought it was a pretty good show.... though the audience seemed like they were all on downers.

Hey...Everyone's talking about Lara Fkynn Boyle today; maybe she's not so stupid?? I agree with you about Catherinee Zeta Jones; I thought she was wonderful. Maybe Renee got it because it WAS such a stretch for her with the singing and dancing. I was disappointed that ....oh, what's his name....didn't get it for "Far From Heaven". He was remarkable! Dennis...??? Help!

I totally feel the same way! Catherine should have won that award. That woman gave one powerful skin-crawling performance right after another. I really hope she gets an Oscar for it, I don't care if she's done performances like that for years. She deserves it for this movie.
