Are you watching the Golden Globes tonight? I'm so excited for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts. Parks and Rec is my current favorite show.
Maybe you can translate it for me...I thought it was nearly incomprehensible. I'll have to listen to it again.crebel said:What an eloquent acceptance speech from Jodie Foster for the Lifetime Achievement Award. Very moving.
Jennifer Lawrence said "all joking aside" after she said the Meryl Streep comment. I knew what she meant, but I think her delivery was a bit lacking. Basically if you're up against Streep you usually lose because she wins so much -- she was making a joke about that.
Well, I did get the thanks to her mother, and thought it was very nice. And I thought she came out (like that was a surprise) but I wasn't really sure... I really have to go listen to it again because it's all anyone is talking about on TV today. My overall impression was that it was rambling and disjointed with some moments of clarity. But I guess I'm going to have to listen to it again.Cuechick said:Basically, she came out ... and gave a lovely thanks to her Mother...
Heck, if I was up against Meryl Streep in an acting category and won, I'd brag on it too... Another speech I'll have to go listen to, because I'm not seeing the problem....Sandpiper said:Category was Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical. Jennifer Lawrence won for Silver Linings Playbook. Meryl was also nominated for Hope Springs.
This was a poster's take on it on another message board:
So apparently, there were two of us...I really have to find her speech and watch it again. Too bad I deleted the GGs from my recordings...The best and oddest part of Sunday night's show came more than two hours in, when a radiant but extremely nervous Jodie Foster came out of the closet. And announced her retirement from show buisness. Or something like that.
Foster, accepting a Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the ripe old age of 50, gave a rambling but heartfelt acceptance speech about everything under the sun: being in show business all her life, guarding her privacy, being a mother, being a daughter. It was very moving--and utterly baffling. It will take many days for a full exegesis of the text, so everyone get to work on that.
I told hubby that Hugh raised the bar for acceptance speech nods to one's spouse. Anybody can thank their spouse for their support and tell them they love them; it's something else indeed to proclaim for all the world to hear and on the record that their spouse is always right.kindlequeen said:Hugh wasn't so bad either.... his open affection for his gorgeous wife is so darling!
