JT’s Golden Globe weekend

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel at the W Magazine pre-Golden Globe party last night. JT is a Globe nominee for the Worst Song of the YearCan’t Stop The Feeling. And he might win. Because it’s the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. And they’re always good for some f-cksh-t. And also because his best friend Jimmy Fallon is hosting. So prepare yourself for a clever-clever acceptance speech. Justin Timberlake thinks he’s good at comedy.

Anyway, as you know, while the Globes are fine, the big prize for everyone this weekend is getting to the Oscars. I can’t imagine JT being left off the Oscar ballot. Will he win though? Will he cockblock Lin-Manuel Miranda’s EGOT? Moana was more successful than Trolls. But that f-cking song, Can’t Stop The Feeling, was inescapable. And if JT wins at the Globes, and gets up on stage, what he does there is almost like an audition for the Academy. If you pick me, if you give it to me, this is what I can bring you, this is what I can deliver. Hamilton might be popular, but for mass awareness and ratings? I’m not sure that there are enough people who love Hamilton who equal the mainstream popularity of Justin Timberlake.

Please think of Duana on Oscar night. And me too. Because we are sharing a room. And if both Natalie Portman and Justin Timberlake win Oscars, she might never recover.
