Tonight is the beginning of one of my favorite times of the year…Awards Season!
It all starts with The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards
And it is hosted by none other than Tina Fey and Amy Poehler; women I actually think are funny…
***Remember Baby Momma***
I am very excited and am looking forward to laughing a lot tonight with the two of them hosting.
Before I get to the nominee’s for tonight’s award show and who I want to win…there is the question of who is this year’s Miss Golden Globe?
Each year, a daughter of a celebrity is chosen to be Miss Golden Globe and assist with handing out the coveted statues. In 1975, Tippi Hedren‘s daughter Melanie Griffith was Miss Golden Globe and in 1982, Laura Dern, the daughter of Dianne Ladd had the honor bestowed upon her.
Below are the most recent Miss Golden Globes‘
Rumer Willis 2009- Daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore
Mavis Spencer 2010- Daughter of Octavia Spencer
(Octavia Spencer is one of 9 actresses to win the Critic’s Choice Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA, and Oscar in the same year for her role as “Minnie” in The Help)
Gia Mantegna 2011- Daughter of Joe Mantegna
Rainey Qualley 2012- Daughter of Andie MacDowell
Meet Miss Golden Globe 2013
She is the 19 year old daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fischer
Her half sister Kathryn, was Miss Golden Globe in 2005
(daughter of Clint Eastwood and flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves)
As excited as I am to see what the stars are wearing tonight on the red carpet, I’m also excited to see which celebrities will go home with a Globe.
(Don’t worry, tomorrow I am going pretend that I am apart of E!’s “Fashion Police and critique the best and worst dressed of the night)
2013 Golden Globes Nominees List
Best Motion Picture, Drama
Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical
Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical
It seems like every year, Meryl Streep’s name is on this list.
Sorry Meryl, but this award should go to Jennifer Lawrence for “Silver Linings Playbook”
Her role in this movie as a young widow is far from Katniss Everdreen but she and Bradley Cooper are supposed to be a hit in this dark comedy
Best Performance by an Actor — Comedy or Musical
If only the great comedians didn’t have to go up against the great musical performers, because there’s only one leading man in this category who’s both funny and sings: Jack Black for “Bernie.” –CNN.com
Hugh Jackman will win for his portrayal of Jean Valjean, but the most truly insane performance of the year belongs to Bradley Cooper.
Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture
Again, like Daniel Day Lewis, Anne Hathaway is a shoe-in to win this award. I don’t like musicals so I do not plan on seeing this movie but I heard that Anne’s performance is sub-par and Hugh Jackman basically “made” the movie
Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
I’ll admit, I do not know much about this category and the nominees…but according to CNN.com
Jones is the clear favorite for his portrayal of Thaddeus Stevens, with Hoffman not far behind as the charismatic leader of a cult.
WINNER- Christopher Waltz for “Django Unchained”
Best Director – Motion Picture
Hard catergory but my front runner is “Ben Affleck”, “Argo:”
I have been meaning to see “Argo” but it is a unique true story that I have heard many good things about and not only did Ben Affleck direct Argo but he starred in the movie too.
Apparently, Steven Speilberg is supposed to win for “Lincoln” but I’m rooting for the under-dog
Honorable mentions would be:
Kathryn Bigelow for “Zero Dark Thirty”; she was the first female to win the Best Director Award for “The Hurt Locker”
I am also a fan of Ang Lee’s work; he is a fellow award winner for directing “Brokeback Mountain”
Best original song
Taylor Swift (“Safe & Sound,” from “The Hunger Games”) and Adele (“Skyfall,” from “Skyfall”) are up against the “Les Miserables” juggernaut, which has a new original song in “Suddenly.”
“Skyfall” is my pick for best original song
But if Taylor Swift wins for ” Safe & Sound” from“The Hunger Games,” it won’t be a total disappointment
As for Television Shows and Mini-Series, nothing beats the Movies so I chose just to include them.
Airs Live Tonight at 8ET/5 PT
If you have a favorite best dressed actor or actress of the night, please comment and I will make sure they are included in my “Fashion At The Globes” post tomorrow.
