I love award shows....I especially enjoy the "pre" shows because I want to "check out" the attire of all the attendees who walk the RED CARPET. Tonight the Golden Globes are on TV. These awards are given by the Foreign Press (about 90 journalists who write for various newspapers and magazines all around the world) for films and television. This show has often been the indicator for which movies will be nominated and may win an Academy Award.
Ricky Gervais will be the host, Alfre Woodards daughter is Miss Golden Globe. There is a fabulous list of presenters, including Paul McCartney, Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry.
The Golden Globe lounge will have black and white draperies valued at $25, 000.00 and art work valued at more than a million buckeroos - I want to be there!
And I have no school tomorrow, so, I can stay up late and see the WHOLE show - - hold my calls, please.
Favorite beverage - check
Snack dishes - check
Plenty of snacks - check
Black Tie attire for the Beverly Hilton Hotel (call me a rebel) - check
And just to share a few of my opinions:
Meryl Streep should win for Julie and Julia
Sandra Bullock must win for at least one of her nominated movies (Blind Side or Proposal)
Grey Gardens for HBO movie - and Drew Barrymore for HBO actress
On with the show......
UPDATE: One hour pre-show: WHO dressed Tina Fey?? BIG MISTAKE! She looks like Mary Poppins (umbrella and all) Sandra Bullock, Jane Krakowski and Drew Barrymore look lovely!
