Bob Costas Co-Chairs The Dan Patrick Show

Post-Sochi, Bob Costas spent nearly two full hours this morning hanging out with Dan Patrick in the Man Cave. The NBC Sports colleagues began of course by revisiting the Winter Olympics eye mess, followed by a series of high-profile phone-in guests.

LupitaNyongo12YearsSlaveMatt Lauer reacted to Patrick’s joking revelation that DP had faked sickness in Sochi once it became obvious that Lauer and then Vieira were getting the prized opportunity to replace the sidelined Costas. Race car driver Jeff Gordon compared notes with Costas on some of the celebrities who live in their shared New York City high rise (Sting, Denzel Washington). And Chicago Sun-Times film critic Richard Roeper jumped in to talk Oscars.

Although Patrick hasn’t seen most of this year’s nominated movies, he ran through some confident predictions for the major categories. While Roeper agreed that Lupita Nyong’o will likely take Best Supporting Actress from Jennifer Lawrence, he wasn’t so sure about Patrick’s Best Picture lock. Roeper thinks Gravity may well pull off the “upset” over 12 Years a Slave.

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.”

Celebrities Aplenty on September Covers

The September issues for magazines are a big deal, and so they typically try and land a big name for the covers. But seeing as movie stars haven’t helped move magazines lately, who will we see when the September glossies hit the newsstand? Let’s review some of the big players, via WWD’s thorough report on the subject:

  • T: The New York Times Style MagazineRooney Mara
  • VogueJennifer Lawrence
  • ElleKate Upton
  • GlamourJennifer Aniston

Time Goes with Five Covers for Annual ‘Time 100′ Issue

If you ask us, Time only needed one cover for its annual Time 100 issue, which lists the 100 most influential people in the world. Instead, the glossy published five U.S. covers, along with two international ones. The one person we would’ve picked? Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani girl who stood up for women’s rights, despite being hunted by the Taliban. This is just a hunch, but we think she might be more influential than Jennifer Lawrence.

Some highlights from the Time 100:

Tom Brokaw on TIME 100 Influencer Steven Spielberg

Although this year’s print version of the TIME 100 features, for the first time, a total of five different domestic (Elon Musk, Jennifer Lawrence (pictured), Rand Paul, Jay Z, Malala Yousafzai) and two international covers (Li Na, Aamir Kahn), FishbowlLA’s favorite aspect of this must-read annual compilation remains the bylines.

This year for example, the ode to Justin Timberlake was composed by one Stevie Wonder; Timberlake returns the favor by praising Jimmy Fallon. And, for the bow-down to Steven Spielberg, the magazine enlisted Tom Brokaw:

However different their subjects, Spielberg’s productions have a common thematic DNA of humanity, so we are enlightened as well as entertained. His work on Lincoln alone was worthy of enduring acclaim, for it brought to life as no other film has this quintessential American President struggling with the greatest moral dilemma of our history.

Vanity Fair Admits It Made Oscar Season Article Disappear

Sometime between Friday, January 25 and Saturday, January 26, Vanity Fair made a decision that it is today deeply regretting. Perhaps the magazine’s brass figured that by making deputy editor Bruce Handy’s online op-ed about Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain quickly disappear over a weekend, the move would not be noticed.

But in what has to rank as a major embarrassment for editor Graydon Carter, Nikki Finke has caught up to the subterfuge. Hollywood initially played dumb when the journalist inquired, before New York finally fessed up:

Publicists for Sony Pictures and Chastain’s BNC flackery told me it was “not true” that VF deleted the article. But, to its credit, Vanity Fair owned up to it. Explained VF spokeswoman Beth Kseniak: “We took it down because it ran counter to what a number of people at the magazine believed.”

Zach Galifianakis Taps Another Deadpan Silver Lining

In the first episode of Zach Galifianakis‘ “Oscar Buzz” edition of Between Two Ferns, it was Jennifer Lawrence who stole the show. She zinged the host with a great Hunger Games gag and to his “that’s off-putting” retort, suggested that he in fact is the one who should be “off pudding.”

Now it’s the turn of her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper. He’s the final guest for Galifianakis’ second set of 2012 Oscar nominee sit-downs, foolishly agreeing to read an acceptance speech drafted by the talk show host.

Diablo Cody is Really Looking Forward to Getting Out of the House

There’s something hilarious about the idea of the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Juno being housebound due to the care of a newborn. But such has been the case in recent months for Diablo Cody (pictured), albeit from the relative comfort of her well-appointed Hollywood Hills abode.

As any parent who has gone through that drill knows, the first real trip out of the house is one to both look forward to and savor. In Cody’s case, it will be when she heads to the east coast at the beginning of February to attend the third annual edition at Barnard College of the female-centric Athena Film Festival (February 7-10), for which she is one of the co-chairs.

“I have a toddler and an infant right now,” Cody tells FishbowlLA via telephone. “I don’t get out to the movies, I don’t get out to have dinner, I don’t get out to my friend’s Live Reads [Jason Reitman, LACMA]. I am so home-bound right now. That’s why I’m so excited about the Athena Film Festival and getting to go to New York for a couple of days. I’m going alone, so I don’t know what I’m going to do with all that “thinking” time.”

Cody will also have the opportunity to finally meet a fellow female Hollywood trailblazer, Gale Anne Hurd, who is receiving the event’s Laura Ziskin Lifetime Achievement Award. “I’m really excited about that,” Cody confirms. “I think it’s so cool that she’s getting this award. I’m really interested to hear the Q&A with her and hear about the experiences that she’s had. Especially making these films that I think a lot of people would consider not to be in a woman’s wheelhouse. She’s probably got a lot to say.”

Aussie Personality Maude Garrett Relocating to LA

Every Sunday, Hollywood-based Australian syndicated radio show The Hot Hits counts down LA’s top 35 songs and features interviews with various celebrities. Starting February 3, the program will have a new host.

Maude Garrett (pictured), who broke through Down Under in 2005 via the national talent search Fresh Meat and has hosted various programs on Nickelodeon Australia as well as the Channel 9 reality TV program The Pursuit, is moving to LA for the new gig. Per the Optus MCM Media Group announcement:

The self-confessed pop-culture brainiac and video game fanatic will be moving to Los Angeles and she couldn’t be more excited about it. “It’s my dream job!” Maude says. “‘I’m able to completely indulge in my love of pop culture, from music to movies and gossip! Moving to LA to attend premieres, interview the biggest celebrities and talk about my obsession with video games…. somebody pinch me!”
