golden globes 09

First, was flipping between the Globes and 24 so obviously missed some stuff. For fellow 24 fans -- did they explain how you-know-who is still around? That last scene, with the foot chase on the boat? HOT. Kiefer in the blue button-down shirt. HOT. I'm really liking that the show moved location. A change was definitely needed. Where's Chloe?

Golden Globes. OMG YAY for Slumdog. The film hasn't been released in India yet? There's going to be celebrations galore. And OMG DOUBLE YAY for Kate Winslet!!! I just freaking love her. Kate and Cate Blanchett are my 2 major celebrity girl-crushes. Her "oh my god, who's the other one? ... Angelina!" was classic. I never knew how close she is with Leo until I read the EW interview with those two. Their friendship and genuine affection for each other is just heartwarming. Spielberg is, well, Spielberg but the montage with all his movies was an eye-opener. It's easy to forget just how many, not just films but great films, he directed/produced. Colin Farrell. His cold/cocaine line was funny and damn, he's looking good sober! Have always preferred him with short hair and that Irish accent gets me everytime. Tina Fey's speech and internet shoutout was awesome. But it was made even more awesome when I discovered (thanks to TWOP) that the people she called out actually exist!! The TV portion was pretty boring as I don't watch any of the shows. Well, I've d/l'd all the 30 Rock eps but other than that, nada.

I need to get caught up in the movie-watching as so many movies that were nominated tonight are just sitting on the harddrive -- Benjamin Button, In Bruges, Happy-Go-Lucky, Revolutionary Road, Burn After Reading & Tropic Thunder.

Whoa, Colin Farrell is sober? This could be interesting.

Also, yes, big props to Winslet.

Hmmmmm, OK, I may be wrong on the sober part but definitely clean for now.

I do hope Winslet finally gets the Oscar she rightfully deserves.

Wow, your flipping was much more productive than mine! I'm in post-work/Malbec coma. Kiefer diving off that crate to tackle Tony was awesome. I caught Mickey Rourke's speech and it cracked me up, though I'm not sure what he won for. I saw Kate nearly crying twice but didn't see her speeches.

You haven't seen In Bruges yet? It's so odd, yet I liked it. It brought back hilarious Bruges memories for me. I didn't go with a contract killer, but close ;) Last year I hadn't seen most of the Oscar nominees (strange for me) yet I think the same will be true this year.

Loved the Kiefer dive!

I missed her first speech and was in the kitchen when I heard all the screaming/applauding, was all "WTH?" until I realized she just won her 2nd award. I've also visited Bruges and I'm pretty sure my visit was nothing like the movie or yours :) I don't think I saw a single Oscar movie last year (exception: Juno) as I'm just not interested in all that dramatic stuff. I need happy endings and humour and feel-good movies, damn it!

As for the 'splanation for that guy who should be dead (but totally isn't), they...didn't really. There was a cast-off line given by the FBI agent claiming that you-know-who was rushed off by EMT's after his "death" in Jack's arms. The general idea being that Jack was so distracted by the rest of the day's events he couldn't follow-up until you-know-who'd been secreted away. There's another line about the FBI exhuming the grave and not finding the right body that is supposed to make the audience believe that whoever "saved" him, did so off-the-books and without permission.

So in other words, business as usual at CTU.

I totally spaced on the Golden Globes - I was so 24-focused I forgot they were on tonight. Oops.

Thanks for the explanation. The old "he wasn't really dead, psych!" move.

I forgot about the Globes too but I was flipping stations before 24 started and saw the red carpet stuff.

How you-know-who is still alive won't be totally explained until the next few episodes. At the moment we just know what ravenrants just wrote.

I cracked and downloaded episode 3 tonight =( I feel so bad!! But I'm glad I watched it! Don't miss the first hour tomorrow, it rocks!!
Jan. 12th, 2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
OMG!!! I can't believe you actually caved!! What happened to the 4th hour?? Did you cave on that one too???
Jan. 12th, 2009 05:33 pm (UTC)
Yes, I did cave and I'm deeply ashamed! I just heard so much about Epi 3 and had to see it! And yes, it was worth it. BTW, get ready for some major Jack & Tony HoYay!

I did have Epi 4 but was a good girl and managed to show some retraint. I wanted to watch so badly but I stopped myself. I wanted something to look forward to today!

What was Kiefer's reaction when he found out about his BFF?

I can't believe you d/l'd the pre-air episodes. I'm SHOCKED.

Irish Accent. YES.
Jan. 12th, 2009 04:57 pm (UTC)
SO GOOD. Irish/Scottish/English, love all of them!
Jan. 12th, 2009 04:13 pm (UTC)
In Bruges was AWESOME! So WRONG and so funny, you know?? I LOVE Colin Farrell with the short hair too. That accent kills me.

So, Kate won both her categories?? YAY!!! I caught the last speech, I think. I love her. So freaking much.

I missed the Tina Fey acceptance speech (the show won, right?). I love her too. That show is awesome. But I think it works best if you watch it on DVD. Which I think I'll continue to do.

Ah, 24. You know how I love thee?? That ending fight with you know who was awesome!!
Jan. 12th, 2009 05:16 pm (UTC)
So I guess this means I need watch In Bruges asap!

She did and when she got her 2nd one, the place went crazy! So so deserving. Yea, 30 Rock seems like a DVD show. I've got all the eps so far. Man, I've got too much

The ending fight between the guys was soooooo good.

In her acceptance for Revolutionary Road, she said that she's loved Leo for 13 years and how she's so proud of him, etc. Then she gushed about her husband :)

OK, I really need see In Bruges, LOL! Heath winning is so bittersweet.
