Okay, the 71st Golden Globes award show is in the books. I for one feel I wasted 3 hours of my life last night. Let's start off with the red carpet. These actors and actresses dressed in their gowns and outfits walking along the red carpet are nothing more than an hour of commercials and commercialism. The gowns for most of the actresses really looked like a bunch of chiffon crap. Jennifer Lawrence in her Dior probably had the nicest gown. All of the acceptance speeches were going over their time limit. It wasn't because of the length of speech but rather that it took so long for the people to get to the stage. Whoever designed the lay out of the room needs to be lined up and shot.
Now let's move on to some of the antics of the evening. One highlight has to be when Amy Poehler was caught making out with Bono right before she went to pick up her award for 'Parks and Recreation'. Kind of cheesy when one of your hosts picks up an award for a so-so show, but hey just saying.
George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Matt Damon were the butt of many jokes which became lame after the first round. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting seems to be lacking in actual good humor or even taste. Come on Hollywood Foreign Press if this the best you can do then please don't come back for #72.
The acceptance speeches were the same thank my manager, family, cast, and crew. Though one of the better acceptance speeches occurred when U2 accepted for their best original song "Ordinary Love" from the film 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'. You see the boys knew the man and had become friends with him over the years. Their story was personal and from the heart especially with it being only over a month or so since he died.
In conclusion, I found the night to truly be a waste of effort. This show might had been effective back in the day but I think it has lost it's appeal. I felt as if I was eating at McDonald's and had wanted prime rib. The show just lacked in so many ways. Hopefully, if they do make it back for #72 they will work on the presentation of the show. Just Saying.
