Golden Globes 2019: A Golden Rhapsody

Sunday night was the Golden Globes, and I was a surprise of the winners.  Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, best-animated film; Roma for best foreign film, Regina King for If Streets Could Talk; Mahershala Ali for Green Book;  Christian Bale for Vice; Glenn Close The Wife (2017), while Bohemian Rhapsody won for best film and Rami Malek for best actor.

It was an incredible night for all the winners. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh were incredibly funny, they remind me of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, hosting the Golden Globes. Bob Hope did the same thing poking fun at the celebrities in a good way. These actors and writers study the greats of how to write comedy, and they were funny.

Carol Burnett

Speaking of comedy writing, we have to praise Carol Burnett, a legendary and pioneer of sketch comedy. She had the best comedy writing team and the ensemble of actors and singers to perform on her show in the 1970s. The show won multiple awards — Golden Globes and Emmys.

So they gave Carol Burnett a Lifetime Achievement Award in Television, the Carol Burnett Award. She deserved it.

Plus, the ratings for the show was up from last year.  Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh should host the Oscars in 2019.

Taylor Swift will be in Cats on Broadway this summer of 2019

Even though Lady Gaga did not win for a Golden Globe for Best actress, but she got an award for best song presented by my girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

The 67 Emmy Awards

The Emmy show ended right on time. No one went overboard on their expectant speeches, only a few. The Emmys did it again, snubbing the people who died this year and they were Alton “Ben” Powers, James Horner, Yvonne Craig, Christopher Lee and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper they made their contribution to television. When would they ever include all the people who died in the Television industry?

The Creative Arts Awards, which were the night before, they celebrate the technical awards for television. They should do this for the Oscars awards for next year in 2016. Have a Creative Awards for the Oscar, the technical awards, included the stunt performers and other technical stuff on one night and then acting, production and etc. the next night, the main event. Have it two-night celebration, that means the show would not go too long and include a two part In Memoriam of the people in the Entertainment Business.

The high light of the evenings was did Jimmy Kimble ate the winner and forgotten who won? Don’t eat the card. Only him and he accountants and his gastroenterologist know for sure.

Binge watch every episode on TV in an underground bunker for about a year or so, not a good idea. Is that pizza moving? Take a bath!

Ricky Gervais did not win an Emmy this year. Who won last year?

Andy Samberg and Seth Meyers team up and gave their boss a “World’s Greatest Boss” coffee mug.

Nominated actors Tatiana Maslany and Tony Hale, both wielding metal detectors and scavenging for valuables. Maslany found a can of beans and started eating them, only to have Hale fight her for the can.

Fred Savage, honoring all the TV shows that left the air this year. These included the farewells of David Letterman, Stephen Colbert, and Jon Stewart, but also the series finales of “Mad Men,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Parenthood,” “Justified,” “Sons of Anarchy” (earning probably its first mention on an Emmys show), “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Nurse Jackie,” and others. Unfortunately the clips chosen almost all consisted of major plot spoilers and very last scenes.

Jon Hamm became the first (and last) member of the Sterling Cooper team to win a dramatic acting Emmy. It was a weird moment, which began with the actor not striding gracefully to the stage but climbing onto the platform belly-first. (Hope that tux was a rental.) Then he proved what a great actor he is by being nothing like Don Draper, a character who was always smooth, polished, and glib. Hamm’s speech was brief, awkward, and cryptic, thanking his supporters by first name only. (Hamm fans will note that he thanked his dog, Cora, and “Jen,” presumably actress Jennifer Westfeldt, his girlfriend for 18 years until their split about two weeks ago.)

Viola Davis gave the most emotional speech of the night — itself a tough contest on an evening that included tearful gratitude from Jeffrey Tambor, Regina King, and Uzo Aduba. But then, Davis was making history — the “How to Get Away With Murder” star was the first black performer in Emmy’s 67 years to win Best Actress in a Drama — and she knew it. She began her speech by quoting Harriet Tubman and gave shout-outs to fellow nominee Taraji P. Henson and several other current black TV actresses (including Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, Nicole Beharie, Meghan Good, and Gabrielle Union) for opening doors. “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is simply opportunity,” Davis said. “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there. So here’s to all the writers, the awesome people — people who have redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be a leading woman, to be black.” Samberg had been making begrudging jokes earlier in the evening about how slow and incremental TV has been in embracing diversity, but Davis made her win feel like a major victory for both herself and the whole industry

Golden Globes: Speechless

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Everybody was shocked tonight when first time nominee were the winners, and they were speechless to what they were going to say. They could not say a simple two words like “Thank you” they were shock and surprise that they were recognize by their peers.

I wonder what they were thinking when they were invited to go to this prestige event, just have a free dinner and wine to drink. I am in!

Jacqueline Bisset, who was nominated five times for Golden Globes and did not win, She was invited to the Golden Globes and won for her performance for “Dancing on the Edge” and she was dancing around her acceptant speech, in which her acceptant speech was very awkward. She was happy and very emotional when she won.

I don’t know how many minutes the celebrities have to give for an acceptant speech when they win, they should have be prepared a short speech even though they do not win.  Maybe Jacqueline Bisset was drunk? And she cursed in the middle of her speech. It was bleep out.  

Jennifer Lawrence wins her second Golden Globe, for America Hustle for best supporting actress. She is a critical claim actress and the critics love her performances in any movies she performed, from the “The Burning Plane” to “Winter’s Bone”, she wasn’t recognize for the Hunger Games Franchises but one of these day she will.  Her acceptance speech sounds like working actress should say thanking her cast, director, her agent and her parents.

I need to be an extra in one of her movies. 

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were both gorgeous and funny for their second time and the most wanted hosts to host the show. One of these days, Tina Fey will have her own show, Amy Poehler wins an award for best actress in a TV series for “Parks and Recreation”, and she was speechless too and she made out with Bono, her boyfriend got jealous, it was all in good fun.

A comedy sketch with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler was funny Amy Poehler was Mr. Golden Globe and Tina Fey played the mother. It was hysterical they made Ms. Golden Globe laugh.

The one-liners jokes were:

She described the mini-series “Masters of Sex” as “the degree I got from Boston College.” Amy Poehler said.

“‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ is a big nominee tonight, and yes, I really love the film, but some of it was too graphic. If I want to see Jonah Hill masturbate at a pool party, I’d go to one of Jonah Hill’s pool parties.” Amy Poehler said.

Tina Fey quip a joke for a space drama:  “Gravity”: “It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”

I hope Tina Fey and Amy Poehler come back next year, they know how to entertain the crowd.
