It’s here, it’s here, it’s here! Sometimes when something I’ve been waiting for (the Golden Globes telecast) for such a long time (since the 2012 Golden Globes telecast) is just about to happen, I wish I could slow time down a little bit just so I can keep the Golden Globes in my future rather than hurry it into my past. I’m sure you can all relate. But of course we cannot slow time down, just as we cannot pause time right when the Golden Globes begin in order to live in that moment forever, right before we get into the “third-rate awards ceremony in an over-crowded field of awards ceremonies, doled out by the ever-mysterious and seemingly-illegitimate foreign press association, convened in a sad-looking hotel ballroom where even the nominees are force-fed liquor in order to endure the whole thing” (you think I’m going to try to re-write the same sentiment when it has already been written perfectly?) (NOT ON GOLDEN GLOBES NIGHT!) so we have to press on. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting! It’s incredible how much better that is than Ricky Gervais! Just look at how much real fun they’re having in this completely natural press photo. Ha-ha-ha, oh how they are friends! (But really, I am looking forward to their hosting more than I thought I could ever look forward to anyone’s hosting of an awards ceremony.) (Should be good!) So please hang out with us here and chat, chat, chat the night away about all the beautiful winners and garbage-y losers, and also please hang out with us on Twitter. Let’s do this dumb thing!

  2. Anne Hathaway looks like she is wearing a fashion chest bandage

  3. Aw c’mon Anne, you don’t care about this!

  4. ALSO: I keep thinking Les Mis is directed by Tobe Hooper instead of Tom Hooper. That is weird.

  5. Anne Hathaway just gave a killer audition for her Oscar speech.

  6. I am not sending a fake duck a get well card.

  7. Is QT drunk? I am assuming QT is very very drunk.

  8. Surprisingly, I find this less annoying than Anne Hathaway’s speech.

  9. Anagram for Jeremy Irons: Jeremys Iron

  10. QUentin Tarantino is boring, but I want to say – I am roasting a chicken, and my apartment smells amazing.

  11. Lucy Liu looks fantastic.

  12. LUCY LIU! She is wearing a sofa from an English manor. I approve in an over the top hilarious way.

  13. It looks like none of them wants to win this.

  14. Wow, House of Pies, no one saw this coming. at all.

  15. SO is Salmon Fishing in the Yemen about the Danger of introducing invasive species into a unprepared ecosystem?

    • Did you ever see the Cane Toads documentary about that very subject? If not, get your hands on it now because it’s amazing.

    • everyone seems confused about how this movie was classified as a comedy and how, dear god, how is it possible that something funnier from 2012 wasn’t nominated instead.

  16. I just looked at red carpet pictures, and Lena Dunham…sorry girl. That dress is wearing you.

  17. I might have had to much margarita and not enough pizza. It’s getting dizzy up in here.

  36. Hey all, I’m a little late. Got some fun life advice for all of you — don’t ever ever EVER try to start a fire in your fireplace with a Walgreens flyer. Just trust me.

    • And don’t ever try to cook bacon in the oven while giving your cat a bath. Trust me on that.

    • Oh dear! What do your curtains smell like now?

      • It actually happened to my best friend. All I got was a screaming phone call about how the fire department was coming over and her mom had yelled at her about having a messy apartment. But it’s a life lesson I hold dear. Her apartment smells fine now.

      • Hopefully okay?? I shut it down quickly, but I had to switch clothes (into my backup ballgown, obviously) after I had 2 industrial fans move new air in and crap air out. If it gets above freezing tomorrow, I’m going to air everything out AGAIN. But I got a good fire going and I think that undoes some of the bad?? I hope so. Eeek.
