The Golden Globes: a Not-So-Beautiful ‘Mess’

Well, Tina was right about one thing: it was messy. The things we’ll remember from last night’s Golden Globes, ranked from least to most surprising:

  • Everyone was drunk (and everyone who wasn’t was pregnant)
  • Breaking Bad won best show, obvs
  • 12 Years a Slave won best drama, obvs
  • Jennifer Lawrence won best supporting actress (obvs again, but someone should have nominated Amy Adamswardrobe malfunction-free V-necks)
  • Bono is NOT the biggest Diddy fan:

Amy Poehler Didn’t Seem to Enjoy Her Hollywood Reporter Interview

shutterstock_123075118Disclaimer: we love Amy Poehler. Love her.

We also understand why celebrities generally don’t care to answer certain questions that we might call “leading”, which is the Old Media word for “trolling.”

That said, she seemed a little uncomfortable during this Hollywood Reporter interview about Sunday’s Golden Globes, leaving most of the heavy lifting to Tina Fey.

Some of her less amused responses to writer Marisa Guthrie after the jump:

Taylor Swift Shows the World How Not to Take a Joke

Note to Taylor Swift: if you’re looking to improve/maintain your reputation or get more sympathy from the public regarding your perpetual boy troubles, engaging in bitchy spats is probably not the best way to go about it.

Responding to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler‘s (completely appropriate) Golden Globes joke warning her to “stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son” lest he turn up in thinly-veiled caricature on her next album, Swift dropped this bomb on her Vanity Fair interviewer:

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”

Yes, those two are such Regina Georges, aren’t they? Oh, and that quote was from former secretary of state Madeline Albright, who doles out wisdom in between her free jazz drumming sessions.

Poehler and Fey’s responses displayed their superior media relations savvy.

5 Tips for Social Media Event Planning and Activation

Today we bring you a guest post courtesy of Cara Kleinhaut, founder of award-winning event creative, production and design agency Caravents. In the last few weeks alone, Caravents has organized and promoted events ranging from the Essence Black Women of Hollywood pre-Oscar week luncheon to InStyle‘s annual Golden Globes beauty lounge, the Playboy Superbowl party in New Orleans and a D.C. inauguration event sponsored by Target.

Here Cara presents 5 best practices and two case studies in effective social media event promotion and “activation.”

5 Best Practices for Social Media Activation at Big Events

  • Create a short, easy event hashtag. Be fun, relevant and clever when coming up with the hashtag. (Example: #MLKDay2013)
  • Showcase @handles and #hashtags prominently throughout the event on all printed materials, signage, screens, etc. This will make it easy for people to talk about your event on social media.

Target’s Golden Globes Ads: Hip or Misogynistic?

Today we came across a post on the AdRants blog that poses an intriguing question: Was Target‘s most recent “Everyday Collection” ad campaign–which ran during the top-rated Golden Globes broadcast–a hip appeal to modern women or a condescending, retrograde series relying on outdated “gender roles” to remind the ladies of all the things they should do and the things they can’t do?

While we must commend whoever chose the music for these spots, we think it’s a legitimate question. Here’s what we take from the six clips:

Women have trouble climbing ladders (physically and metaphorically) and screwing in light bulbs:

Women have trouble opening things (and must take prenatal multivitamins, lest they get all crazy on us men):

Thoughts on Jodie Foster’s Golden Globes Speech

Confession: we kinda missed the Golden Globes last night on account of our unwillingness to put up with the hosts on the free PopSugar stream. But we are aware that everybody is talking about Jodie Foster‘s very personal “coming out” speech and that many fellow actresses (and Mel Gibson) were predictably moved to tears, so we figured we’d examine it from a PR perspective. Here’s the full clip in case you didn’t catch it:

Well, she certainly did it with style, didn’t she? We love how she danced around “the question” while letting everyone know the answer.

Next issue:
