I don’t often watch the pre-show red carpet specials, and I remember why now.. I had watched the E! one in the past and got so irritated by the correspondents, and then watching NBC’s coverage last night, the audio wasn’t very well mixed so there was more bleacher-people-screaming than actual interview questions being heard.
I’ve been very much looking forward to this year’s Golden Globes awards. While Ricky Gervais for the last few years has been shockingly funny, Tina & Amy were spectacular in their opening segment. So many actual laugh-out-loud moments! I started to point out the stand-out moments during the opener but it was pretty flawless.. just click the link and watch for yourself! There definitely wasn’t enough of these two but when they were onscreen, even for the split second moment of fake nominees, it was amazing.
Twitter was certainly entertaining (and polarizing) throughout the entire awards. I’m sure within minutes of it happening, there’s a series of “not-impressed” faces meme that would include Taylor Swift & Tommy Lee Jones. Also, pointed out by Ardo, that there was a whole lot of superheroes on the awards show last night!
Tonight was filled with superheroes: wolverine, storm, batman, iron man, Electra, daredevil. Missing anyone?

(Catwoman, Hawkeye & Sabretooth were added after this, as was another iteration of Batman)
There were quite a few gorgeous gowns at the awards last night… some of my fave included ones worn by Halle Berry, Tina Fey’s teal show opener (actually, both her dresses were really nice), Jessica Alba, Zooey Deschanel, Anne Hathaway.. lots!
Overall, it was pretty entertaining! My only complaint would be that there wasn’t enough Tina & Amy… 🙁
