Behold, two young(ish) women wearing pretty (boring) dresses who are presenters because they are working (not notable) actresses. What’s the point, again? Why these two? Why BOTH of them? Is one of them not enough to hold our interests but two together makes them more than the sum of their parts? Bush’s Narciso Rodriguez dress is so boring and unimpeachable. Full Story

Of course there were props for her win. Like, actual edible props. She seemed like the Pied Piper of Cookies as she passed them around, and it did something amazing: It started half the speech FOR her. How ingenious is that? When you only have 29 seconds, why waste time introducing the character for those who don’t know? Cookie, of course, is the only topic here. Full Story

Are you watching My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? Unlike Mr. Robot, that one is still underground, even after last night’s win. It hasn’t taken over the conversation so you have time, and it is great. You want to be watching this show, to marvel that they can DO THAT on TV and have it be great and watchable and, as Rachel Bloom pointed out, actually seen by the world. Full Story

Seated together at the Globes. Losing together at the Globes. But smiling together at the Globes. There are some people who think that Alicia is leveraging her relationship with Michael for attention. For votes and profile. Which, I get it. I know that move. I love calling out that move. But that move only works if the person being exploited is actually a deal. Full Story

America Ferrera & Eva Longoria: Best Globes Joke

It was the best joke. Because people expect jokes from Aziz Ansari and Ricky Gervais and Will Ferrell. Even from Amy Schumer. But they don’t expect jokes from ‘straight’ actresses, and that’s why it was so great to hear Eva and America point out that they were neither Gina nor Eva (Mendes) nor Rosario, but that they were possibly either Salma or Charo. Full Story

I loved Maggie Gyllenhaal’s dress, which was not surprising to me because I usually love Maggie Gyllenhaal’s dress. She’s so good at choosing patterns and proportions that work for her. But – just gonna come out and say it – is she ever happy? It’s just all very serious all the time. Full Story

BALBOA!!! For months I've been hoping for this one. Sylvester Stallone is the sentimental favourite of this award season. He received the standing ovation to prove it. But up until last night, though it seems hard to believe now, he was not the frontrunner. Some experts didn't even have him on their predictions lists as late as last week. Full Story

Maura Tierney: Globes Double-Edged Sword

Last year, The Affair won the big prize. Best Drama. So people were surprised, this year, when there were no corresponding nominations, based on how much richer and deeper the show was in season two, and how beloved it had been by the HFPA in season 1. No nominations except one—for Maura Tierney playing Helen Solloway, a character who has been my favourite of the four leads all year, and who is marvelously layered. Full Story

Every time I watch something with Olivia Wilde in it, I’m reminded that I like her. I don’t understand why it’s hard for me to remember in between times. But there’s something about looks like this that give me an idea.   It’s just so slouchy. She seems slouchy, even though I think she probably has to stand up very straight to make that dress work right. Full Story

As expected, Matt Damon won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy last night. The entire room knew that Leo was going to take Best Actor Drama. So his goal was to use his speech to present himself as an alternative to the Academy. Hey, you put me up on stage, and this is what I can do. Remember, America loves me too. Full Story
