Golden Globes 2014: 12 Years, Hustle, Blanchett Among Top Winners (LA Times / Movies Now)
12 Years A Slave went into the 71st Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night with seven nominations but was passed over again and again. That is, until the last award of the evening, and arguably the best of them all. The harrowing portrayal of slavery in America took home the prize for best drama of 2013. The film’s director, Steve McQueen, seemed surprised by the win. “Little bit in shock,” said the British filmmaker, clutching the award. “I wasn’t expecting it.” But the evening’s biggest victor was David O. Russell’s Abscam-inspired comedy, American Hustle. NYT The two female stars of American Hustle, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, both picked up acting awards. Lawrence beat out Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years A Slave, who was viewed as the leading contender, in the supporting actress category. USA Today Leonardo DiCaprio won for best actor in a musical/comedy for his hedonistic stockbroker in The Wolf of Wall Street. When accepting his award, DiCaprio took the time to honor the greats, including fellow nominee Bruce Dern of Nebraska. The Guardian / TV & Radio Blog One of the few genuinely shocking wins at the 2014 Golden Globes was the triumph of cop sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine in the best comedy series category. Having only last week aired its twelfth episode on Fox, the win — alongside a Globe for its lead actor, Andy Samberg — may have almost single-handedly saved the show from cancellation. Variety What might go down in history as the pregnant-pause, followed-by-being-played-off Golden Globe Awards proved a curiously awkward affair, even by the standards of an awards showcase with a reputation for looseness and unpredictability. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reprised their role as hosts, but the duo failed to produce more than sporadic moments of mirth, in a show where honorary-award recipient Woody Allen looked prescient, in hindsight, by staying home. NYT It was a gender-bending Golden Globes, or at least, the hosts made an effort to celebrate gender equality. Fey and Poehler tried hard, and sometimes too hard, to top their first hosting job last year. It didn’t work so well when they aimed to be like the guys and go blue — their jokes about prosthetic penises fell flat. Deadline Hollywood First Mia Farrow tweeted she was turning off the Golden Globes on NBC when they went to the Allen tribute. Then her son and upcoming MSNBC host Ronan Farrow lashed out against his mother’s former longtime companion, also on Twitter: “Missed the Woody Allen tribute — did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” THR / Golden Globes E!’s pre-Golden Globes show was under fire Sunday evening after the network put up a questionable “fun fact” for nominee Michael J. Fox as stars made their way down the red carpet. The “fun fact” that was displayed said: “Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991.”

Bulk of THR Questions Anything But Golden to Amy Poehler

Shutterstock_PoehlerFeyIt’s funny (and rare) to behold a Q&A during which one half of the group being interviewed expresses repeated and vocal dismay about the questions being asked. Such is the case with Marisa Guthrie‘s Hollywood Reporter conversation with returning Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The first sign of Poehler trouble follows a request from Guthrie to relay some of the worst awards show joke suggestions heard by this talented duo:

“You think I’m going to tell you a bad idea for a joke? You’re f—ing crazy. No! Honestly you’re just trying to figure out a fresh take on something…”

Live, from Everywhere: It’s Lorne Michaels

TIMECover_SethMeyersIs it too early to consider Lorne Michaels for Time‘s 2014 “Person of the Year”? At the very least, he would seem to have New York’s “Person of the Winter” pretty much locked up.

Michaels is largely responsible for the ascension of Seth Meyers, on the cover of Time currently. And of course, he helped Jimmy Fallon wrangle The Tonight Show back to New York City for what will, if not ratings-wise, at least vibe-wise be a complete re-invigoration of the Burbank, CA talk staple.

And let’s not forget Sunday January 12, when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – stars of NBC sitcoms past and present – return to the Beverly Hilton to host another Golden Globes ceremony.

At This Awards Show, Presenters Routinely Tell the Audience to ‘Shut the F— Up’

Here are a couple of early 2013 film awards season ways to highlight the differences between the two coasts.

The first is Nellie Andreeva‘s recent report that Woody Allen will not make the trek to the Beverly Hilton on January 12, 2014 to accept a Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. As previous Oscar shows have demonstrated, the Woodman is never ready for a facile, self-congratulatory close-up. Be it AMPAS or HFPA.

Shutterstock_JaredLetoThen there’s last night’s Gotham Awards, held at Cipriani Wall Street. Hollywood Reporter awards columnist Scott Feinberg reminds that the group of voters who picked the major category winners is minuscule. He also touches on a room vibe that is more raucous than the TV-film-booze mix of the Golden Globes:

The thankless job of hosting the festivities was carried out with good cheer by The League‘s Nick Kroll, who, like many hosts before him, struggled to retain the attention of much of the audience in the huge room with the high ceilings, even though he was pretty funny.

While Kroll never chided the loud talkers, actor Jared Leto, while accepting on behalf of his Dallas Buyers Club co-star Matthew McConaughey (who was on a movie set but listening in via Leto’s cell phone), and director Lee Daniels, while presenting to his The Butler lead actor Forest Whitaker, both told them directly to “Shut the f–k up.”

Ricky Gervais Says Goodbye to the Golden Globes

Comedian Ricky Gervais is calling it quits from the Golden Globes.

No, seriously. For real this time.

Gervais wrote on his blog that he wouldn’t be persuaded to host the award show for a fourth time:

“It was by far my favourite of the three hosting stints. I’ve told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It’s like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realize you didn’t die and it was quite an amazing thing to do.

The crowd were great this year too. I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all. Or they were just drunker. Either way, it was fun but I’m glad to say I’m off to New York to chill out a bit.”

Thanks for all the laughs and awkward moments, Ricky.

Ricky Gervais Returning as Golden Globes Host

Despite saying he shouldn’t do a second encore, English comedian Ricky Gervais will host the 69th Golden Globes Awards on Jan. 15, 2012.

Gervais was voted as host for a third consecutive year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association after meeting with NBC senior vice president Doug Vaughn.

“Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars,” Gervais tweeted Wednesday afternoon.

Ricky Gervais: Do You Really Think Johnny Depp Cares That I Didn’t Like The Tourist?

Speaking with Piers Morgan on CNN Thursday night, Ricky Gervais made it clear he doesn’t see anything wrong with his performance at the Golden Globes. “Like I’m going to go out there and not talk about the issues in their industry!” he exclaimed.

Gervais also expressed confidence that the celebrity attendees of the ceremony have a sense of humor about his jabs. On mega-star Johnny Depp, Gervais mused:

Do you really think he hasn’t seen the press about The Tourist? Do you really think he’s hurt that I didn’t like The Tourist?

Gervais went on to say that he’s sorry if anyone was offended… but he’s not sorry for anything he said.

Ricky Gervais Gets Plenty of Hollywood Love in Twittersphere

Robert Downey Jr. may not have appreciated the caustic humor of Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais, but Twitter tells us that he’s got a plethora of defenders in the industry.

TONIGHT: Nikki Finke Live-Blogging the Golden Globes

Or as Finke herself puts it, “Live-Snarking.” Starting at 5 pm, she’ll be verbally bitch-slapping the Golden Globes in real time on her Deadline Hollywood blog.

Finke isn’t exactly a fan of the Globes, as she notes on her blog:

This is a completely meaningless awards show from a scandal-riddled organization on a network desperate for ratings. Not only have journalists like myself for years been attacking the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its exclusionary membership policies and too-cosy relationship with studios and networks, but an Oscar-winning documentary director (Vikram Jayanti in his 2004 film The Golden Globes: Hollywood’s Dirty Little Secret) has called the group a bunch of “freeloaders” who know more about hors d’oeuvres than auteurs and select winners based on “who kisses butt best”.

This oughta be good…

SAG members won’t cross picket lines for the Golden Globes, no matter how big the goodie bags.

Why don’t the Gawker writers join the WGA? Then they can all threaten to go fi-core.

RIP, Ed LaDou. Too bad his obit didn’t mention how he got screwed over by California Pizza Kitchen. Pizza Therapy has an interview.
