I only saw the opening, uh, whatever that was, from Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh...seriously, who the hell thinks it’s a good idea to have two strangers with no chemistry host a show together? Franco and Hathaway at the Oscars several years ago wasn’t enough of a cautionary tale?

Oh, and I did flip back in time to see The Dude do his thing, that was alright.
I thrive best hermit-style.

The Dude and Batman gave the only really fun speeches.

Movies
3 Green Book
2 Roma
1 Bohemian Rhapsody
1 The Favorite
1 First Man
1 If Beale Street Could Talk
1 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
1 A Star Is Born
1 Vice
1 The Wife

TV
2 American Crime Story
2 The Kominsky Method
1 The Americans
1 Bodyguard
1 Escape at Dannemora
1 Killing Eve
1 The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
1 Sharp Objects
1 A Very English Scandal

At the end A Star Is Born, If Beale Street Could Talk and Bohemian Rhapsody can stand with 2.
BlacKkKlansman and Black Panther can get their first one.
But overall, no big winners so none the wiser towards the other award shows.

Absolutely surreal finish to the show with surprise wins for Best Actress and Best Picture Drama. This is why I love the Globes so much; always far less predictable than the end-of-awards-season Oscars.

Second official list for Green Book. Bohemian Rhapsody already have gained 6.

(But 4 of Bohemian lists are temporary always-changing lists, so the score is 2-2 in the "everlasting" ones)

This is true, though to be fair the GGs have an impact in sorting out the Oscar nominees. Maybe. Hard for me to imagine Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody being the big winners from the Academy but stranger things have happened. I've also seen less than usual of the GG noms/winners, and likely Oscar noms so my own predictive powers are probably even weaker than usual.

so, what's the over/under on amount paid by Fox in hush money to get Bohemian Rhapsody released sans scandal? b-b-b-but they fired Bryan Singer towards the end of production! mea maxima culpa


besides that, I didn't think I could love Olivia Coleman any more than I already did but she proved me wrong.

I don't think I would call Glenn Close's win a surprise, tbh. She's been the frontrunner for almost the entire season. It's slightly surprising they didn't go gaga for Gaga, but they do like to be predictors of the Oscars if they can, and the "she's due" narrative for Close is building a lot of steam right now. Plus I hear the performance itself is pretty great. And they gave Gaga a Globe for the song.

I didn't know Close's film existed until like a week ago when I saw someone online poking fun at how awful the poster/dvd box art was.

Bradley Cooper is a really good actor tho. Not a work spoken, just sitting there, clapping, and I could read so clearly in his expression "THEY'VE BEEN SAYING FOR THE LAST FIVE MONTHS, A STAR IS BORN WILL WIN EVERY AWARD EVER WHY GOD WHY".

i read the book glenn close's movie is based on and it is fucking awful. surely a case where the adaptation trumps the source material. at least one hopes.

I'm not that surprised Green Book won Best Comedy/Musical, but winning best screenplay is just an insult to all the other writers nominated for that category...this is the kind of script we want to celebrate in 2018???

Fuck, even Peter Farrelly's speeches had a 90s feel to them. The only thing that made me cringe harder than the opening dialogues was listening to him talk about how progressive and enlightening his film is in his second speech. I imagine it's probably the exact same speech Spike Lee would have given had he won anything for BlackKklansman, but hey, at least when Spike couldn't figure out how to write the message he wants to send into the narrative, he had the sense to shameless exploit a recent tragedy to manipulate gullible viewers into thinking the film actually had something to say.
