My Top 10 Thoughts about the 2013 Golden Globes

I've been live-snarking the Golden Globes all night long. You can catch up on Twitter or see my Top 10 thoughts on the Globes here:

1.  Anne Hathaway:  I've said it all season long and I am a supporter of her performance in Les Mis, but I think she's trying too hard.  She's acting like this big underdog and she's not.  Anne is a young, talented A-List actress who is on her way to winning her first Academy Award.  I wish her acceptance speeches came from an authentic place....instead of jumping up to the mic to give another shout out during the Les Mis win.  Sorry, your moment already happened.  UGH.  Don't make me change my SAG Awards vote for you.  Rant over. (Although her Sally Field tribute was nice....and sincere.)

By the way, I am hearing baby bump rumors about Anne.  Could she be pregnant?

2. Ryan Seacrest:  This photo made me realize he is dying his hair hard core.  He looks really old next to Julianne Hough because of the bad dye job....and while Ryan isn't 25, he certainly isn't old.  He makes $15 million a year from American Idol alone, stop dying your hair from the box.

3. Claire Danes:  I've tried so hard to like Homeland, but I can't get into it.  I'm in the minority on that show, so let's talk about how amazing you look.  You had a baby less than 30 days ago.  Wow! Dress by Versace.

4.  Taylor Swift:  I'm over her songs about ex-boyfriends, but THIS look is good for her.  She usually dresses like a fluffy kitten in pastels.  This is fierce.  It looks like she's laying down the law, no more ex-boyfriends like John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal or Harry Styles.  Dress by Donna Karan Atelier.

5.  Halle Berry:  She's beautiful, but she has rocked this look for years.  I think it's time for a red carpet style.  It's so boring now.  It's pretty, but it's boring.

6.  Jodie Foster:  I'm pretty sure she officially came out during her Cecil B. DeMille speech.  This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.  She did it in her own way.  I also have to say that 50 looks fabulous.  Wow!

7. Ben Affleck:  I've been talking all week about your Oscar snub.  The voting members of The Academy made a big mistake.  Last night proved it.  I think your film is way more interesting than Steven Spielberg's Lincoln.

8.  Lena Dunham:  She's exactly what Hollywood needs right now.  She sends a great message to young girls everywhere:  Be who you are, be unique, and let your talents shine through.

9.  Amy Poehler and Tina Fey:  They were very funny, but I wanted to see more of them.  Just sending that thought out to Hollywood Foreign Press and Dick Clark Productions.

10. Bill Clinton:  I've met him twice.  I don't care what your politics are.....he's still the most popular man in the room.  Yep, he even trumps George Clooney.  No one has more charisma.  No one.

Okay, do you agree or disagree with me?  Chime in below!


  1. Nice write up, I do wish there was more Tina and Amy but less is more as they say. Which Anne should have done when Les Mis won it all, but I do think she was genuinely excited. I'm glad Argo won it was in my opinion the best film of the year (and yes best directed and possibly written via adapted) also happy Hugh Jackman won he's come a long way from playing Wolverine, a character I love but glad he wont be type cast from now on.

  2. Taylor Swift's dress is so much better than her usual flouncy style; that's a great color. I have yet to see a movie I'm completely happy with the direction* of (although I have not seen all the nominees) and I think Argo would have been a better movie if Affleck hadn't been directing himself, but it was certainly a very solid effort.

    *Non animated. I have no qualms about the direction of ParaNorman, very well done, or Rise of The Guardians, also well done, with some gorgeous visuals, which should have taken one of the other Animated slots. #endminorrant

  3. Anne is super excited. I loved her performance. She just needs to calm down and believe...the self-deprecating act doesn't work. I am such a fan of Ben Affleck as a director. I can't wait to see his next film.

  4. I need to catch up on my animated category. I am way behind. I actually loved "Argo" and most of the movies this year. I think it was a tough year to compete. Last, not so much.
