Entertained by this year's Golden Globes
As I watched E!'s red carpet I became enthralled like a young boy watching the first playoff game of the NFL. Awards season has always been one of my favorite things since I was a young child. Watching all of Hollywood return to its glamorous roots, and celebrate its best performances and films of the year always makes me smile. So far this year's Golden Globes has not disappointed. Always having been my favorite awards show for its huge star power, plethora of awards and champagne which always fuels entertaining moments, and often the only awards show that rewards both drama and comedy this year its back with a bang. Having been a scaled down, pitiful version last year due to the writer's strike the first hour of this year has given us some great moments. Ricky Gervais' hilarious presentation that quickly turned into a five minute stand up bit with a pint in hand on stage, to Kate Winslet fabulous and well deserved win and acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress for The Reader. Stay tuned...I know I will.
