68th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2011: Live Blog
Gervais says: The only reason "The Tourist" was nominated was so that the Hollywood Foreign Press could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. Airbrushing Sex and the City 2 posters b/c they look old?
Up for nominations: "The Walking Dead," speaking of the walking dead, Hugh Hefner, Just don't look at it when you touch it. Haha! Ricky Gervais is the best.
5:06 p.m.: First announcer: Scarlett Johansson. Up for best supporting actor in film and the Golden Globe goes to Christian Bale, "The Fighter." Christian Bale gives a shoutout to Mark Wahlberg. Thanking everyone, thanks Dickie and Mickey and his lovely wife, plus his daughter, says something to Robert De Niro but the music plays over him.
5:10 p.m.: Best supporting actress in a TV series presented by LL Cool J.: winner is Katey Sagal, "Sons of Anarchy." So happy for her. She looks beautiful in her red dress. "Shocked, but prepared." Thanks a bunch of people. Thanks husband, also creator of "Sons of Anarchy." "so glad you're the boss of me."
5:16 p.m.: Julianne Moore and Kevin Spacey present best mini series or TV movie and the award goes to "Carlos."
"Carlos tracks the bloody career of Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, dubbed "Carlos the Jackal" by the media (though not by this movie). Where Mesrine was a gangster who came to fancy himself a revolutionary, Assayas' Carlos (deftly played by Edgar Ramirez) is a revolutionary who never quite admits to himself that he's become a gangster."
5:21 p.m.: Ricky Gervais welcomes "Ashton Kutcher's dad, Bruce Willis." Bruce Willis presents "Red." Also category of best motion picture in a comedy or musical. Golden Globe award for best supporting actor in a tv series goes to: Chris Colfer in "Glee." He looks stunned. "I think I just dropped my heart between Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore." Colfer's speech was short and sweet. His last words went something like, to all those kids who were told they couldn't get what they want based on who they are, "screw that kids."
5:30 p.m.: Michelle Pfeiffer introduced "Alice in Wonderland," nominated for three Golden Globes. Eva Longoria welcomes president of Hollywood Foreign Press: Philip Berk. "Ricky next time you want me to qualify your movies, go to another guy." Ouch.
5:33 p.m.: Kevin Bacon and Milla Jovovich present nominees for best actor in a TV drama: Golden Globe goes to Steve Buscemi in "Boardwalk Empire." YES!!!! Buscemi is truly brilliant in "Boardwalk Empire." Gonna try and talk fast before that sad music comes on. Thanks cast plus Kelly MacDonald, plus heart and soul of "Boardwalk Empire," Terri Winter. Thanks wife and Lucien.
5:37 p.m.: Five shows nominated for best TV series drama. Golden Globe goes to "Boardwalk Empire." Of course.
5:43 p.m.: Andrew Garfield (nominee for "The Social Network") tries to say "inspiringly" about three times, finally gets it right to applause. Ricky Gervais welcomes Alec Baldwin and Jennifer Lopez. Nominees for best original song. Golden Globe goes to "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," from "Burlesque," sung by Cher.
5:49 p.m.: Golden Globe for Best Original Score goes to Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross "The Social Network." Trent Reznor gives thanks. He looks so different from how he looked in the '90s. Much, much better looking.
