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.

Sarah Palin A Star is Born

I see why John McCain and Sarah Palin would not watch the movie. It was their relationship throughout the whole campaign and the making of a vice president. Who knew we can pick a vice president of the United States on YouTube, who picked O’Biden, I meant vice president Joe Biden?  I did not know he was Irish. Sarah Palin was coached to be vice president; she has to remember facts and figure, and even history. Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), the senior adviser was preparing her with notes and flashcards about the common questions of what the press would ask. Even though she was a spit-fire when debating and putting some of herself out there, and she was great with people.

Senator McCain (Ed Harris) wanted a charismatic vice president to be on his team, and he picked Sarah Palin and the turmoil continued with her. She was missing her family, the press and the media was after her like a swimmer in the middle of the ocean infested sharks. What she did? She poked them in the eye.  She was a fighter. She had nervous breakdowns. The campaign manager was pressuring her to get it right say the right words and key words when debating. It would be nice to read the teleprompter once in a while verbatim. Ad-libbing was great for her and her campaign manager like it when she personalized the speech. She has to stick with the topic of discussion.

People are still saying today she wanted to be president, she writes books about her life and her family, and she likes doing book tours of her books.  How many times, would the press and media would ask the same question: “Are you going to run for  president?” She said “No” many times, it means no. She knows the pressure and the humiliation of the media.

Julianne Moore as Gov. Sarah Palin in “Game Change” on HBO did an excellent job portraying the governor. Julianne Moore got the mannerism and the voice of the former Governor Palin.  I could not tell, was it the real Sarah Palin or Tina Fey?

Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), the senior adviser, is the war hero, and Senator McCain (Ed Harris) comes off as a crusty old soldier who follows orders but can’t help grousing. These guys did a great job, including Woody Harrelson trying to keep Governor Palin straight as possible.

Danny strong, wrote the acclaimed HBO film “Recount” about the 2000 presidential election an Al Gore film political picture, and now he wrote, “Game Change” adapted from the bestseller book about the 2008 presidential race.  The film is focused almost entirely on Sarah Palin and her national rise as John McCain’s running mate.

Danny Strong is a native ofManhattan Beach,California, and a graduate of the University of Southern California; he’s also an actor, and has appeared in episodes of Mad Men, Gilmore Girls, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, among other shows. Acting, though, has taken a backseat to his writing, and that’s not likely to change. He just signed on to write the screen adaptation of The Lost Symbol, the third installment of the Dan Brown thrillers, the movie versions of which feature Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon. Tom Hanks is also the producer of Game Change.

Would Danny Strong get nominated for an Emmy for his writing on Game Change? The movie is exciting to watch.
