Shush

Friends, I love awards shows. I can't explain why, I just do. Maybe I like watching people get nervous and make speeches. Whatever the case, yesterday's Golden Globes were particularly good because there are a lot of quality shows out there right now. I was particularly happy that Slumdog Millionaire and 30 Rock did so well; the only disappointing bit was that Milk wasn't nominated for more awards.

Here is a favorite moment featuring Ricky Gervais. Might I add that the movie that he refers to, Ghost Town, is totally worth watching. It won't blow your mind or anything, but it is a perfect little story that will entertain you the way a movie should.

I LOVED Ricky Gervais. I wish he were the host of the Oscars this year instead of Hugh Jackman (still can't figure that one out). I also thought Sascha Baron Cohen was really funny and was kind of surprised by how shocked everyone was by his Madonna joke.

I thought "Milk" would have more noms, too. Hopefully for the Oscars we'll see a "Milk" and "The Wrestler" sweep. That would be my dream. Oh, and Kate Winslet 'cos I love her.

Oh, Erin! I realised that you would probably be interested to know that "The Wrestler" was written by an ex-Onion staff member. That's pretty cool, I think.

Thanks for the Onion trivia, Brie. Oh, and I love Kate Winslet too.

You're like the third person to recommend this bit, and I'll watch it as soon as I'm somewhere with fast internet. I watched most of the show, but missed this part. The Madonna joke was quite good, and I liked Tracy Morgan's speech too (Deal with it, Cate Blanchett!)

I saw Ghost Town on the plane, it was a nice surprise! Watched Eagle Eye on the same flight, and it too was surprisingly enjoyable.

We ate cupcakes while watching the GG. It was a real party with Michael, Ananda and Amr. You know I loved them buddy!
