The Golden Globes is usually one of the most fun awards shows to watch. First off, no one (except the HFPA) seems to take it that seriously. Secondly, round tables and alcohol guarantee some memorable moments.
I have never really been a huge fan of Rickey Gervais, I simply don't usually find him that funny. That being said I thought he was brilliant last night. Now I know there is something sort of rotten about inviting guests to a party and then roasting them but Gervais really only said what most of us actually think.
Just a few observations:
Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans (above): Hottest (and most boring) presenting combo.
Jennifer Love Hewitt nominated in the same category as Judi Dench??? (I believe this was a sign in the book of Revelations).
I am glad he is healthy but am I alone in not really ever getting the appeal of Michael Douglass?
Any one else ever so briefly question their sexuality when Halle Berry walked on stage?
Angelina Joie has certainly perfected those dagger looks.
Kudos to Glee, I do love the show yet...when I see the cast at award shows for some reason they annoy me.
I love being introduced to new projects and actors when watching award shows and last nights Golden Globes introduced me to Édgar Ramírez from Carlos.

Thanks to WinterType for the incredible caps!
I have always been a fan of actor Jesse Eisenberg, thought he was cute and immensely talented and respected his choice of roles. I was not ever really attracted to him. Even though Jesse is 27, he always looked more like 15. Last night however, at the Golden Globes there was something about him that was so very attractive. Might be his role in The Social Network, might have been the tux, might have been he is now looking closer to his age. Whatever it was, he was looking mighty fine!

I recommend this flick in spite of my distaste for Kristin Stewart.
