    Mr. Wow, I just came out of my heated pool in Florida and I am ready to watch. I have my pjs on can’t wait to see Ricky let’em have it. Like he says, they are the riches, most spoiled people on earth. Let the games begin.

      Nothing happening yet, of course.  I haven’t shaved in two days, but finally showered.  (My hideous cold returned yesterday, and I wasn’t feeling up to jumping into a shower. We have very little hot water, too.)

      But I put back on my grungy white wife-beater (I know it is  a politically incorrect term. I’m just preparing you all for Mr. Gervais) and my even grungier sweat pants.  Hardly any point in showering, really.

      I’m rooting for “The Ides of March” or “The Descendents”….Meryl (just give her a damn Oscar again and maybe she’ll go away and stop being nominated)…Ryan Gosling (because he’s hot)…   In the Comedy/Musical catagory: “Midnight in Paris”…Charlize Theron (terrible movie, but she was terrif)…Joseph Gordon Levitt (he’s hot too, and quite versatile)…

      Then we get into Best Supporting and my patience wears thin.     My hopes for TV include Maggie Smith (Donwton Abby)  and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones)     Nothing from HBO’s boring “Mildred Pierce,” I pray. (One of Miss Winslet’s rare mistakes)

      The day started well with the news that Jesus finally had enough to Tim Tebow’s  histrionics and busied himself elsewhere.  Perhaps now Tim will read his Bible and learn what JC said about praying in public.

      The other fun item was Mitt Romney handing a jobless woman waiting on line to see him, $50.00.  Whew!  And Obama is supposed to be all royal and elite?  Imagine if Obama handed somebody money?   And wait a minute, Mitt–weren’t you “entitling” this woman?   Shouldn’t you have told her to save her gas money and her time and go find a job without bothering rich people?

      Okay…the red carpet silliness begins soon.   I have only one complaint, stemming from my all-night chore here–why can’t we make the font bigger?!  

  2. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    Ryan Seacrest and Guilian Rancic of E! begin.  Because of her recent health issues I will not dish her tonight.   I’m tempted, however.

    Ricky Gervais being interviewed.   Ugly suit, bad color. 

    George Clooney has arrived.  Has never looked lovelier, as Louella used to say.

    Guiliana has changed her dress.  Please, please, let me be nice!

  3. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Kelly Osborne–why the gray hair?

    I don’t know the name of the queen she’s sitting with.  I should, but he repels me, always, to the point of always forgetting his name.

  4. avatar Reggie says:

    Oh, you don’t like Guiliana?  Maybe cuz I relate to her recent surgery, she looks awesome to me.  The first dress was nice, the second dress horrid — the color, yuck.

    • avatar Mr. Wow says:

      Look, I don’t know Guiliana. Probably a very nice woman.  Never cared much for her capabilities as a host or her fashion choices, but…she has suffered quite an ordeal recently, so…

      I can be good.  I can. 

  5. avatar Reggie says:

    Stacy brought her grandpa with her.

  6. avatar Reggie says:

    Lots of boobage tonight.  Clair Danes.

  7. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    More Clooney…

    doesn’t expect to won, will end the evening “face down drunk.”  Gotta love him.

    Octivia Spencer from “The Help” arrived.  Looks great.  I did love her in that movie, tho I didn’t like the movie, much.

    Guilana is interviewing a child from “Modern Family.”  Sweet thing in Dolce and Gabbanna.  Looks appropriate for her age.

  8. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Adam Levine in Tom Ford.  He looks better without a shirt. 

    Melissa Mcarthy.  Could have done more with her hair.  Gown simple and safe.  Fine

    Wow–Sarah Michele Gellar.  Like that a lot!   The girl should work more.

  9. avatar J G says:

    Ok, I’m here now..we can begin.

  10. avatar J G says:

  11. avatar J G says:

    Greasy, Josh..Not a good look

  12. avatar J G says:

  13. avatar Tee Zee says:

    I’ve already started drinking in anticipation…

  14. avatar J G says:

    Help? Yes, she was the tacky girl in the help..

  15. avatar J G says:

    Why are we watching Nicole Richie? Oh, she’s promoting her show….she’s a mentor??

  16. avatar J G says:

    Wait, what?
    Who is in the grey hair? NO..What’s her name with the Ozzie Ozbourne father. (SP)

  17. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Jessica Chastain loves Guiliana.  Jessica as Princess Diana, really?

    Paula Patton?  Don’t know her.  Gown was great tho.

    Nicole Richie…smiling for a change.  Has had some excellent work!  

  18. avatar Reggie says:

    Ross the intern is kinda annoying.

  19. avatar J G says:

    Oh, I loved The Descendents. (sp)

    I love that girl, she was awesomeness in that movie.

  20. avatar J G says:

    Ross is VERY annoying. So is Ryan

    Oh, I love that guy from modern family. He’s so funny.

  21. avatar J G says:

    Mr. Wow, I can’t do this by myself, sweetie. Please come back…..

  22. avatar J G says:

    Pills? Where are the pills they are discussing?

  23. avatar J G says:

    Rooney Mara…My first glance of Rooney Mara..

  24. avatar Reggie says:

    I like Sarah Michelle Gellar’s tie-dyed dress.  It’s so different and she rocks it.

  25. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Sarah Michelle…love the dress.  Needs more ear bling.  More sparkle.

  26. avatar Reggie says:

    Josh Brolin looks like Rick Perry!

  27. avatar J G says:

    Diane Lane looks beautiful.

  28. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Josh and Diane…

    Not a good night for either!    Her hair. 

  29. avatar J G says:

    I didn’t like Sarah Michelle’s dress, but I love her..

  30. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Sofia Vegara from “Modern Family”–looks great but thinner than usual. 

  31. avatar J G says:

    I liked her hair, Josh’s not so much..

  32. avatar J G says:

    twice a day at the gym. She is Gorgeous.

  33. avatar J G says:

    I’m going to channel my inner Mr. Wow and let it rip..

  34. avatar J G says:

    Octavia Spencer…beautiful face..cut to sofia, not fair

  35. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Octavia Spencer…charming.

  36. avatar J G says:

    Jessica Chastain looks great. What’s wrong with Octavia’s tooth. Someone needs to tell her something is on her tooth.

  37. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Octavia’s shoes!!!!!  

    Love her more now.

  38. avatar J G says:

    Freida PInto, I don’t know…she’s so beautiful, not sure if I love her dress.

  39. avatar Reggie says:

    Jessica Chastain — what an ill-fitting dress.  Maybe it’s just my tv .

    Frida Pinto — love the gold necklace and the color of the dress, but don’t really like the bouffant-ness of it.

  40. avatar J G says:

    I know. I loved her shoes too.
    Rooney mara..I’m intrigued by Rooney…

  41. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Rooney Mara…scary.

    Sofia…she is much thinner.  I advise cutting down the gym visits.

  42. avatar J G says:

    I loved Jessica’s dress. I wish miss gorgeous mermaid Sophia would go away. I’m spiteful and I know it.

  43. avatar Reggie says:

    Sofia Vergara — awesome dress, awersome hair, awesome personality

  44. avatar J G says:

    Julie Bowen is my kind of girl. She’s hysterical. “where’s your team of men to carry you” to Sophia. Too funny.

  45. avatar J G says:

    Awesomeness needs to stop hogging the camera and making every other female insecure.

  46. avatar J G says:

    Just kidding. sort of. Julie’s dress is too Disney.

  47. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Julie Bowen… drab.  Odd little shoulder things.  Nice hair. 

  48. avatar J G says:

    Yay..Rooney. She speaks…

  49. avatar J G says:

    uh oh..her smile gives her away. There is a sweet girl hiding under all that eyeliner

  50. avatar Reggie says:

    Rooney Mara — borrrrring

  51. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Rooney Mara..

    Smart, nice–the new Tilda Swinton.

  52. avatar J G says:

    I agree with Mr. W. re: Rooney.

  53. avatar J G says:

    We need some Kardashians to keep this show afloat..

  54. avatar J G says:

    Who will Ricky G. rip into?

  55. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    In minutes I start jumping from this to the NBC red carpet and back…

  56. avatar Reggie says:

    I love Jane Lynch (and her book is a hoot), but she’s got a bit of bedhead

  57. avatar Reggie says:

    Matthew Morrison — delish!

  58. avatar J G says:

    Bed head…You’re right!! Off to NBC

  59. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Viola Davis…hot.

    Jane Lynch…never great in a gown.  But love her.

  60. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Zooey…so glad she’s bringing back Ann Margaret’s hair.

  61. avatar Reggie says:

    Zooey Deschanel — great dress, great nails, cute

  62. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Ricky Gervais on NBC red-carpet…an asshole.

  63. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Brad and Angie NBC—

    Not exactly Liz n’ Dick but both look pretty good.  Tho I prefer him clean shaven.  Her arms look a bit healthier than usual.

  64. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    lose the headband.  And the thing on the hip.

  65. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    E! is showing Ashton primping.  Please, no more of that.  From anyone.

  66. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Gosh, Laura Dern is looking more like her mother every day…what’s with the hair?

  67. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Michelle Williams…

    overrated performance. An insult. 

    And another wretched headband.

  68. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    Not much after Sofia. 

  69. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    I think I saw David  Bowie. Or a mummy. Or Tilda Swinton.

  70. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Julianne Moore!   I think for once she has finally nailed it at an awards show.

  71. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Elton John and wife…

    God, I wish I was rich and famous enough to just wear a full wig, like Elton does.

  72. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Checking out Angie again.  Love the touch of red at the collarbone w the matching clutch.

  73. avatar J G says:

    Reggie, You made me laugh out loud.

    All of you did. I’m just going to watch and read for now. You are all better then the best…

  74. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Mary J. Blige look delicious!

  75. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Rob Lowe and his lovely wife…both looking a bit rough.

    Mary J. Blige.  Transexuals approve.

  76. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Madonna has arrived.

    I. Am. Braced.

  77. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    Arms less threatening..nice boobs…face good.  Hair too long and messy.

  78. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Madonna, what’s up with the glove…?

  79. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    Okay, girl.  Red.  Nice uplift. Nice mermaid look.  More long, messy hair tho.

  80. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Leo diCaprio…

    Comfortable, doughy middle-age.  Great character actor now.

  81. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    After Carson Daly shook Leonardo’s hand, Leo started rubbing his hands together furiously, like he couldn’t wait to get to the Purell.

  82. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Emma Stone… just hideous cut and color.

  83. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Okay…M’s gown.  Pretty nice, actually. LOTS of bling on those wrists. I want to comb that hair!

    Oherwise, this M fan is pleased.

  84. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Glenn Close.

    HD is not kind. 

    Beautiful earrings.  Great gown–Armani.

  85. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Reese already looks like she is having a hell of an evening.  That dress is clearly goosing up her mood.

  86. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Helen Mirren…wears the HD more comfortably.

  87. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    the show


    Great shot of Jodie.  Looks terrif.

    Elton is not amused.  He doesn’t appear to be alone.

  88. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Ricky Gervais…bad tux…what an ass…

  89. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Johnny Depp…

    Filthy hair.

    Tina Fey doesn’t look amused.

  90. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Mila Kunis…should be a much bigger star.

  91. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Nice speech from Plummer.

    Ashton.  Well, he looks much better cleaned up.

  92. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Diane Ladd looks very happy for her child.

  93. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    I was right.  Julianne looks terrif.  Must have  a good stylist, finally.

  94. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Anything but “Mildred Pierce.”

    Yay!   And I do love “Downton Abbey” which makes it sweeter.

  95. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Anybody but Kate Winslet.

    Shit.  And ugh, she just embraced Kris Jenner.

  96. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    But…I admit Miss Winslet is a beautiful woman and usually a talented actress.

    But “MP” belongs to Miss Crawford.  And JC didn’t have six hours to “explore” the  character.

  97. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Agree… all that talent and Kate Winslet gets the globe…time for a refill.

  98. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Oh, Jake! 

    You are so cute.  Why must you be introducing this horrible film? 

  99. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Kelsey Grammer…a joke.  Got to be a joke.

    I’m stunned.  Who did pay?!!!!!!!!   Come on, he doesn’t need that much sympathy for spending seven years with Camille.

  100. avatar Tee Zee says:

    I toast to you Mr. Wow and B… 

    Ricky Gervais is just not funny and Kelsey Grammar… you gotta be kidding… 


  101. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Hmmm…”Homeland.”    Liked it at the beginning.  Then the shark  jumped the shark.

  102. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    There’s nothing more enjoyable than watching a group of white millionaires giving each other awards.

  103. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Fingers crossed for M. 

    Oh, well. 

    She’ll survive.  On to the Super Bowl.

  104. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Fingers crossed for M.


    Long sleeves, darling.   Otherwise, quite lovely. Accent is still a bit posh.  Thought she ditched that with Guy Ritchie.

  105. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Idris…now thats the way to fill out a tux! 

  106. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Michelle Williams.

    This is a crime.

    I know, I know—I feel this too personally.  Can’t help it.

  107. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Michelle, carved out of cream cheese…

  108. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Hoping for Peter Dinklage. 

    Okay…this is soothing my irritation over Michelle Williams.

  109. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Clooney…charming…funny… oh, I’ll stop before I embarass myself

  110. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    WOW!!  Channing Tatum.  Thank you so much, young man.

  111. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    “The Adventures of Tintin”  was charming.

    But “War Horse?”  Agony.   Go see it on Broadway.

  112. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Nicole Kidman

    Oh, my…much better than usual!  

  113. avatar Tee Zee says:

    William and Felicity…what a fun couple…

  114. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Jessica Lange…what a real woman…refreshing

  115. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Couldn’t Owen Wilson have accepted for Woody? 

    Jessica Lange!  Glad about this. She’s divine.  And she was the only actress who might have gotten away with playing MM back in the day.  She had that odd vulnerable quality, and it was real, too.

  116. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Well, since Madonna now speaks as if English was a second language, I guess this  presenting gig is appropriate.

  117. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Claire Danes…elegant and the right shade of red.  Charming

  118. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    I just realized the old cliche is really true: it doesn’t matter if you’re nominated, it’s just an honor to win.

  119. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Claire Danes.   Liked her “Homeland” performance at first.  But by the end of the season it was so over-the-top. Utterly unrealistic.  You can suspend disbelief only so much. Really.

  120. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Emily Blunt.  Was the best thing in “The Devil Wears Prada.”   Robbed of an Oscar nod for that one and for “Young Victoria.”

  121. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Enough with the “poop”…  some of us are beyond the preteen bathroom attempt at humor.

  122. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Matt LeBlanc…was the booze cut off to early
    …who are the Foreign Press?

    • avatar Mr. Wow says:

      Ah…be nice.  I think this is the first award he has ever won.  “Episodes” is really very funny. And his last line, about wanting to be the Matt LeBlanc of the series, was sweet, and  self-deprecating. 

  123. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Octavia Spencer.

    Finally, something real. 

  124. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Reese, Reese, Reese!   Honey, never get out of that dress. 

  125. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Sidney Poitier..

    And finally a real star.

  126. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Helen Mirren…

    Another real star.  And  a real woman!

  127. avatar Tee Zee says:

    ah Helen, gracefull

  128. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    I love Morgan Freeman. Especially as God.  He could make me re-think my issues on faith.

  129. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    My, my…Brad certainly looked happy to see his lady onstage.  I think we can discount  the unending fighting/separating stories in UsWeekly.

  130. avatar Tee Zee says:

    They need to bleep Ricky Gervais for the rest of the broadcast, he’s added nothing.

  131. avatar Tee Zee says:

    I miss Hollywood behaving badly…

  132. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Michelle Pfieffer…

    Well, she kept back those hands of time as long as she could.

  133. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Great performances aside, “The Help” is awful.  Sorry, I know very few agree.

    Latifah looked fab.

  134. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Meryl  WANTS it. 

    Meryl gets it. 

    Nice bit, looking shocked.

  135. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Meryl, darling whats up with your costume?

  136. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Nicely toasted, our Miss Streep. 

  137. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Seriously Meryl, great laugh and sense of humor. I need to grow one.

  138. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Jane Fonda …biggest appreciative roar of the night.

  139. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Uggie, the adorable Jack Russell Terrier from “The Artist.” Both Bella and I can’t contain our excitement!

  140. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Natalie Portman…last year’s unworthy Oscar-winner.   Gorgeous, however.

  141. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Harrison Ford.  Bangs at 70?  Only Claudette  Colbert could  pull that off.  And Mamie Eisenhower.

  142. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    Who was Uggie wearing?

  143. avatar Mr. Wow says:


    That’s three hours I’ll never get back.  Still, fun to be here with…several of you.

    Now I have to eat.  B.’s Sunday dinner awaits. 

    Mr. W.

  144. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Thanks for a special evening… no Ryan Gosling…so sad.

  145. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    Thank you!

  146. avatar lincer says:

    I fell asleep in the middle of show. Got tired of waiting for Ricky  to be funny.  Much better last year.

  147. avatar Baby Snooks says:

    I normally don’t watch but was bored and went in and changed the channel to watch. After it had begun of course. I have no sense of time. Even with notes attached to the computer keyboard so I don’t forget.  I don’t forget, really, I just forget to look at the clock. Even the one on the bottom of the computer screen.  Caught two blondes who I have no idea who were they were, one looked like Twiggy, and then the phone rang.  Someone I haven’t talked to in ten years. So that was the end of the Golden Globes for me.  There was also a pan of the audience before the phone rang. There were actually a lot of women who looked lke Twiggy. Boobs apparently are no longer in? And the lighting was too harsh. I would have excused myself and not come back. But the evening was not totally lost. Lots of things to catch up on. Lots of gossip. Some of it about me. I love to hear what people really have said. Sometimes. Live by the sword, die by the sword as they say.

    Since I didn’t watch I can’t comment on the comments although judging from the comments it must not have been that bad.  As for Meryl Streep, well, maybe they should just create a Meryl Streep Award and give it to her each year at all the awards show. Open up the competition for the other awards a little.  You must admit she has never won an award she didn’t deserve. And hasn’t gotten an award for many roles she deserved one for.  So, well, the Meryl Streep Award would solve both problems, wouldn’t it?
