The Golden Globes usually like to reward the new and shiny. This year, they went back to some of their favorites but did crown current TV “It” girl Lena Dunham. (Read Rob’s review of film awards here.)
Showtime continued its incredible run of late with a clean sweep of the drama categories, as “Homeland” and leading lady Claire Danes repeated from last year while co-star Damian Lewis won for the first time. They are all reigning Emmy champs.
Indeed, tonight seemed like an Emmys replay. Maggie Smith for “Downton Abbey,” again. “Game Change,” again. That telefilm’s star Julianne Moore, again. Kevin Costner for the miniseries “Hatfields and McCoys,” again.
Salma Hayek and Paul Rudd presenting the Best Drama Series category – sloppy, awkward and strange.
And I’ll have whatever Aziz Ansari is. Were his all-over-the-place ramblings when announcing the Best TV Comedy Actress category part of his act, or was he just having a really, really good time?
