It's the start of the big award season! Yay! I'm watching the Golden Globes right now and while there seem to be more commercials than usual, I'm enjoying the show very much.
This year's show is hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and their comic genius has permeated the entire show. This may be a big awards show but there's a close, friendly vibe. People were making jokes, when things went wrong people just laughed, and everyone seemed to have a great time. Jodie Foster's acceptance speech was brilliant and poked fun at media and reality shows and being gay and single and how much she values privacy. I don't know if she had planned it in advance or if she spoke off the cuff (Ian says she planned it) but her speech was wonderful.
The dresses women are wearing are lovely, for the most part. There are lots of beaded embellishments and lots of lace and lots of sheer fabrics. I'm looking forward to doing the red carpet post in the next few days
