Award Season.

It’s that season again. The Golden Globes were on last night, and unfortunately, it was relatively upset free. I think I was the only one who wanted to see Ben Affleck win (just to shock the cinematic world). I called the double Helen Mirren win. And the Babel win. Warren Beatty tried far too hard to be funny. In fact, actors usually bore me when they’re stuck speaking their own words. Of course, Meryl Streep and Sacha Baron Cohen were entertaining (I called those two wins as well), but it was Hugh Laurie who stole the show. I swear Brits are just way cooler than the rest of us.

"People are falling all over themselves to send you free shoes and free cuff links and colonic irrigations for two. Nobody ever offers you a free acceptance speech. There just seems to be a gap in the market. I would love to be able to pull out a speech by Dolce & Gabbana."

''I know everyone says they have a wonderful crew and logically that can't be the case and they can't all be wonderful. Somebody, somewhere, is working with a crew of drunken thieves.''

Hugh Laurie, winner for House

More thoughts on the season will follow in the weeks to come. Here's hoping for an Oscar nod for Ryan Gosling...
