2015 Golden Globe Awards (LIVE UPDATE)

golden-globes-logo

It’s that time of the year again! It’s Golden Globes time! But instead of live-blogging this yearly event, I think I’m going to mix it up a bit and post the best tweets that I can find throughout the night. Hopefully this produces one epic Tweetle Dumb post, but we’ll see. Cheers to seeing film and television actors drinking and being merry (and hopefully stumbling around a little).

Amen sister! Except I’m all out of wine, so I’ll be sipping on some Bulleit Rye Whiskey on the rocks.

7:55 p.m.

Loved Whiplash and thought Simmons was incredible. Well deserved.

A great win for Billy Bob Thornton for his role in Fargo, but this guy’s right. And then Thornton gives the best, short speech ever!

I’m glad Fargo (my favorite TV show of 2014) got recognition from the HFPA.

8:31 p.m.

Clearly Eli is one of Meryl Streep’s biggest fans.

8:38 p.m.

globe15-twt13

I was just saying this to someone lol. I haven’t seen Jane the Virgin, but have heard very good things about it. Anyway, her speech was really heart felt and it’s great to see Gina Rodriguez so legitimately happy to receive the award.

And that’s why these awards show do matter. I was surprised that the Amazon show won as well, but I have heard good things about Transparent. Let’s see if the rest of the Globes are going to be as unpredictable…

Way to throw your family under the bus like that! I wonder how many of them follow Vikram. By the way, Vikram is a great name.

8:49 p.m.

That would truly be an upset to Linklater and Inarritu, the two favorites. But hey, it can happen right?

9:03 p.m.

globe15-twt18

Imagine how the celebrities feel when he’s on stage.

globe15-twt19

Agree to disagree I guess?

9:15 p.m.

globe15-twt20

How to Train Your Dragon 2 upsets The Lego Movie at the Globes, and people are mad!

9:28 p.m.

globe15-twt21

Yeah I have to agree with these tweets, some of the jokes here are just not working, though it is fun to watch how these actors/presenters are sticking with it even when they know it’s not working.

9:37 p.m.

globe15-twt22

9:54 p.m.

The Affair wins for Best Television Drama…

globe15-twt23

… and people are mad.

10:23 p.m.

Richard Linklater wins for Best Director at the Globes. There weren’t any funny tweets about it, so I just want to comment that Boyhood was my favorite film of 2014 and I’m hoping it takes home all of the awards it deserves.

10:27 p.m.

globe15-twt24

I think Stanley is confused, or does he actually believe the most popular shows should be winning? Does that mean he believes The Guardians of the Galaxy was the best film of the year?

10:35 p.m.

Michael Keeton wins for Best Actor – Drama…

globe15-twt25

… and everyone is happy! Great win for Keeton. Let’s see if he can keep up the momentum through awards season on his way to the Oscars.

10:45 p.m.

The Grand Budapest Hotel wins for Best Comedy or Musical! I bet Birdman wishes it were in the Drama category now.

globe15-twt26

And to my surprise, people are happy for the upset! Mike’s right, Wes Anderson did deserve this. Always a man with movies that fly under the radar and that studios don’t give enough respect to.

10:55 p.m.

Julianne Moore wins Best Actress – Drama and Eddie Redmayne wins Best Actor – Drama. I haven’t seen Still Alice, but Redmayne was great in The Theory of Everything. That’s one hell of a category though and it’ll only be tougher when Michael Keeton gets thrown into the mix for the Oscars. And I still don’t think you can completely rule out Benedict Cumberbatch for The Imitation Game. As for Moore, it’s also a competitive category with great performances from Witherspoon (Wild) and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), but it looks like she’s almost a lock to winning so early in the game.

11:01 p.m.

And the Best Drama Film goes to Boyhood. No surprise there. It was a nice telecast with a great opening monologue from the funny women and some really heart-warming speeches. Maybe I’ll throw in a few more reactions to finish this post, or maybe not. Anyway, that’s a wrap!
