10 Things I thought about the 2014 Golden Globe Awards

2014 Golden Globes Breaking Bad castA lot to discuss on last night’s Golden Globes. Let’s get into it!

10. Anyone catch “Inside Llewyn Davis” star Oscar Isaac pouring water for one of his table mates? Starting to look like George Clooney and Hugh Jackman may have some company for the coveted “Nicest Guy in Hollywood” award.

2014 Golden Globes - Jennifer Lawrence and Colton Haynes9. I know we all love Jennifer Lawrence and all, but on this night, “Arrow’s” Colton Haynes wore it best.

 

2014 Golden Globes - Jacqueline Bisset8. Isn’t it awesome that we can count on at least one “were they drunk????” acceptance speech every year? Thank you Jacqueline Bisset! And whoever was working the seven-second delay must have been Tweeting at the absolute worse time.

2014 Golden Globes Sofia Vergara

7. Sofia Vergara. Yep. Nuff said.

2014 Golden Globes - Paula Patton6. I know celebrities are pretty self-absorbed and all, but did anyone else find it odd that no one bothered to help out poor Paula Patton after those swans attacked her?

    Lupita Nyong’o was also very nice. I have to wonder 12 years a slave not win more, but at least it won. I didnt man up to see it in the theater but It will be a purchase on dvd right away.

    While I’m pleased that “12 Years a Slave” won Best Picture in the Drama category, it’s very strange that it didn’t win in any of the other 6 categories it was nominated. I don’t expect to see this kind of discrepancy with the film again during this awards season.

  • Yeah, I found that very odd. Maybe it’s because the HPA didn’t want to make the Golden Globe Awards a somber affair and went with the lighthearted, feel-good stories/films.

    I am with Fred. I was extremely happy that “12 YEARS AS A SLAVE” won in the Best Picture in the Drama category. However, I was not concerned that it did not win in another category. I have always thought that “best picture in drama” was the top one. I am anxious about the OSCARS now. For some reason I feel the Golden Globe Awards are less commercial and more about the actual art of filming. I won if “12 YEARS” has enough commercial appeal for the ACADEMY.

  • Fred

    You have a point about if commercial appeal will play into “12 Years” chances of winning for Best Picture at the Oscars, but than again it could very well end up being today’s “Schindler’s List”, which would bode great for it. It’s around 40 million domestic and I heard they’re expanding it’s theaters, that combined with the impact some Oscar wins could have for it should definitely help it’s box office numbers down the road. While it won’t be a blockbuster hit, the content just doesn’t allow for that, I could see it ending up around 75-85 million domestic in the end.

    Oh I am glad to hear that Brother. I will have me fingers crossed.

    Indeed my friend.
