So, the reason why I love the Golden Globes more than any other award show is because it's the one time you get the television and motion picture stars together under one roof, which is always so much fun to see. The separation between the two is quite interesting; television stars in the back, film stars in the front - and the HUGE film stars dead and center. I did come away with a few interesting observations though:
1. LOVE LOVE LOVE Reese Witherspoon's new hair style. I'm so thrilled she finally cut bangs. She's needed them and she looks adorable.
2. Everyone looked so....old. Did you notice that? Tom Hanks looked bloated; the usually tan Dustin Hoffman looked pasty; Warren Beatty who looked young at the table shots up on stage looked almost elderly. Even Marty Scorsese looked older than usual. Maybe it's just that my perspective has changed since I'm getting older myself.
3. I loved seeing a few of the actors/actresses being overwhelmed with emotion and not really knowing what to say. The jaded, experienced actors accepting their speeches never really affect me as much as seeing the unexpected surprises and happiness from the ones who are truly taken aback with their success.
4. The actor from "House" is British?!?! Who knew?!?!?! Jeesh, I don't really care for him on the show - but have him speak in his native tongue and I'd watch him all night!
5. None of the female celebrities looked amazing, which surprised me. Some of them really didn't look all that great at all which really surprised me. Some of the dresses were gorgeous; but overall I thought I've seen most of them look better. Easy for me to criticize - who the heck am I? But then again - with all that money, who wouldn't always be looking their best??
Last night was American Idol's debut of Season 6 - and it proved to be as good as always. Minneapolis seemed to be a little thin on true talent, which surprised me - unless they've held off showing the best. But what I'm really looking forward to seeing is tonight's show in Seattle. Oh my. There's something sadistic about watching people make fools of themselves - and then be in awe when they're so angry because they think that they're really good.
It's so sad, and yet so hysterical at the same time.
