    My Memorable Moments:

    Best Win (Film): Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln)
    Best Win (TV): Lena Dunham (Girls)
    Worst Win (Film): Jessica Chastain (it deserved to go to Watts or Cottilard)
    Worst Win (TV): Don Cheadle (couldn’t they use the star-writer-director-producer cred they gave to Dunham for Louis C.K. as well who deserved it more)

    Best Presenter(s): Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell – one of the funniest presenting duos I’ve ever seen. Ferrell’s facial hair makes it even funnier. But they need to become hosts of something or the other in the future.
    Worst Presenter(s): Jennifer Lopez and Jason Statham. Lopez seems to be a staple at the Golden Globes, and usually she is paired up with someone funny to deliver the one-liners. However, Statham looked uncomfortable and it was clear we wanted to be anywhere but there at that moment.

    Best Host Quote/Line: “I haven’t really been following ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ but when it comes to
    torture, I trust a woman who was married to James Cameron for three
    years
    Best Presenter Quote/Line: “Judi Dench! I mean, where did she come from? A former police officer,
    and here, in her first movie, she’s just terrific.”

    Best Winner Quote/Line: “Oh, what does this say? I beat Meryl!”

    The optics of Jodie Foster sitting beside Mel Gibson, dead center in the audience.

    Thus, having Foster make her 1st “public” declaration of her fabulous gayness with what appeared to be her date for the evening whistle encouragement. That date being Mel, a man who I’m told has made homophobic and misogynist comments, who is a traditionalist Catholic who has a Holocaust denying father who he hasn’t distanced himself from it would seem. 

    Which has got me curious. Is Mel really a nice, liberal, peace loving guy at heart but a man who can’t hold his liquor? What did Mel do to “save” Jodie and earn from her some serious loyalty? Of does Jodie just like her ying and yang?

    Other thing I was wondering was whether Foster was able to upload her speech into the teleprompter in advance, given that this award was known in advance. It sorta looked like she might have been reading parts of it.

    Unless on can’t read a speech, knowing that one has to give one in advance, would be hard to screw up unless nerves or a desire to be spontaneous caused things to go array. Watching it again this am, it seemed to make more sense to me. While watching it, it seemed a tetch manic particularly at the beginning with her 50 declaration, suggesting that such an age might require a walker (altho this is the age Swanson played the crazy Norma Desmond mid last millenium), etc. I’m assuming if you knew for certain that you were speaking at the Globes you could / would upload your talking points. What I’m getting at is many are saying she seemed to ramble and not make sense at times, yet it’s likely the speech was well thought out in advance, practiced and written and delivered my an obviously intelligent individual.

    Best Win (Film): Ben Affleck – Best Director
    Best Win (TV): Julianne Moore – Game Change
    Worst Win (Film): Les Miserables – Best Picture Musical/Comedy
    Worst Win (TV): Homeland – Best Drama (never seen House of Lies so can’t judge Cheadle)

    Best Presenter(s): Robert Downey, Jr.
    Worst Presenter(s): Wiig/Ferrell (went on too long and reminded me of that skit she did with Armisen on SNL) and Statham/Lopez (if that’s the kind of chemistry they’ll have in their blockbuster JANUARY release, then Taylor Hackford should be worried, well more worried, that he has a flop on his hands)

    I think Jodie Foster gave the best, most-moving, and memorable Lifetime Achievement Award speech that I have ever seen. Usually, I get bored about 1 or 2 minutes into their speech, but I was hooked on this speech all the way until the end. And she was able to get that entire room to be silent. Even when Daniel Day-Lewis was accepting his award, you could hear people talking. But that entire room was SILENT when Foster was speaking. It was simply an amazing speech.

    Jodie Foster’s speech is one of the most amazing speeches I’ve ever seen.  So well-put, moving, and mesmorizing.  I don’t understand why so many people “didn’t understand it.”
