The Golden Globes just tweeted through the pain — and it was unhinged and hilarious.

“The Golden Globes” was held last night, and I put “The Golden Globes” in scare quotes because there was neither a broadcast nor even a live feed from the event (which actually did take place at the Beverly Hills Hilton — just without a single famous face in attendance.) Instead, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chose to announce winners by clogging up Twitter with a bunch of unhinged tweets. (More on that in a sec.)

As for who actually won, here are the TV winners:

  • Best Television Series, Drama: “Succession”
  • Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy: “Hacks”
  • Best Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television: “The Underground Railroad”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama: Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, “Pose”
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama: Jeremy Strong, “Succession”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy: Jean Smart, “Hacks”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television: Kate Winslet, “Mare of Easttown”
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Supporting Role: Sarah Snook, “Succession”
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy: Jason Sudeikis, “Ted Lasso”
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television: Michael Keaton, “Dopesick”
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Supporting Role: O Yeong-su, “Squid Game”

The big winners in film were The Power of the Dog and West Side Story, which in itself is a funny story. So, as I mentioned, the HFPA announced the winners via tweet, and here’s how they announced West Side Story had won Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: “If laughter is the best medicine, [West Side Story] is the cure for what ails you.”

Now, anyone who is familiar with West Side Story knows, it’s hardly a laugh riot, as it is AN ADAPTATION OF ROMEO AND JULIET. So, HFPA pulled that tweet, and simply replaced “laughter” with “music” … which “music is the best medicine,” isn’t a thing that people say?

They also, for reasons that are unclear, added “Lean on Me” to a tweet announcing Ariana DeBose won Best Supporting Actress for her performance in West Side Story. “Lean on Me” is in no way associated with West Side Story. But at least West Side Story was mentioned in that tweet — there were several which forgot to include what project the person won for.

Anyway, you can see all the winners here.

Amy Schneider has become the first woman and only the fourth person to surpass $1 million on Jeopardy! Interestingly, since 2003, half of the contestants who have won 10 or more episodes have done so in the past five years. What gives? Is the show getting easier? Are contestants figuring out the system?


Good luck, Clay!

It looks like Mary Crosby has quit The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City after her fellow castmates insinuated that she is running a cult. She did not show up for the reunion show, essentially assuring that she will be fired.

And over on The Real Housewives of New York, The Countess’ ex-husband (and everyone’s ex) Tom got engaged, again, on the anniversary of his wedding to Luann. She claims that she wishes nothing but happiness for him, but come the fuck on.

If you needed more information about that 90 Day Fiancé star who was selling her own farts, boy, is it your lucky day.

Bob Saget, Comedian, star of Full House and Fuller House, host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, narrator of How I Met Your Mother. He was a comedian who played off his image as America’s Dad to sometimes be shockingly raunchy, but who had a reputation of being one of the nicest people in comedy. As you can see below, the outpouring of grief from the comedy community is profound. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
