The most meaningless awards ceremony was back last night for some dumb reason.

Chickens purr. And now you know.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The Golden Globes happened last night. There was a brief moment there when Hollywood woke up to the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a racist, sexist, corrupt organization and its awards ceremony was a meaningless sham that was hosted as a means to pressure Hollywood actors and actresses into schmoozing with a bunch of journalists who would otherwise have little access to them. IT’S ALL NONSENSE AND IT MEANS NOTHING.

But because the entire industry is based on ego-stroking, once the HFPA “cleaned up” its act — by hiring a bunch of crisis managers and public relations teams — and after putting the Golden Globes in a television time out for one (1) year, the Golden Globes were back on NBC last night, and everyone in Hollywood (with a few notable exceptions) were willing to play along.

I’m not going to spend a whole lot of time on last night’s ceremony because I still think it’s a bullshit event hosted by a bullshit organization that doesn’t actually mean anything and its only purpose is to inflate already stratospheric egos and YES, IT’S “FUN” but my feelings about the three-hour ceremony is:

But because it’s the biggest TV story of the day, I suppose I have to at least mention it in passing.

Here is your list of winners.

Here’s Jerrod Carmichael’s monologue, which, to his credit, dragged the HFPA. And just listen to how uncomfortable the audience is.

And he went THERE:

I can also give credit to a few speeches:

Ke Huy Quan’s acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor for a Motion Picture in Everything Everywhere All at Once was terribly sweet:

And please note the googly eye:

Jennifer Coolidge’s speech thanking the people who kept her career going was similar to Ke Huy Quan’s but with a lot more bleeping and Mike White sobbing:

Eddie Murphy’s advice in the business:

And Ryan Murphy acknowledged MJ Rodriquez who made history last year as the first trans actress to win a Golden Globe — last year. When there was no televised ceremony and she didn’t get to have her moment.

Oh, and yes, Milly Alcock was very drunk when House of the Dragon won for best drama series …

… but I think it’s even funnier that only three House of the Dragon people — two actors and a FORMER showrunner — even attended the ceremony because they didn’t expect it to win. Hilarious. And congrats on the win, kids. I guess.

We’re just getting started with Awards Season:

The SAG Awards (which will broadcast on Netflix’s YouTube channel this year and stream on Netflix in 2024) have announced their nominees. I’m not mad at them.

And the DAG has announceditsr nominees for television and I’m pleased to see that my beloved FBoy Island received a nod. No, I’m not kidding.

Pssst … for those of you who haven’t read the accounts of the Dance of the Dragons in George R.R. Martin’s other books, this scene in Game of Thrones spoils the ending. Or at least a part of it.

Do … do the fans of Warrior Nun understand that Kelly Clarkson doesn’t run Netflix? Can someone please explain to me why this is happening?

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City‘s Jen Shah is going to prison for 6.5 years, and people are still asking Andy Cohen if she’s going to be on the show. Do y’all know what prison is?

Yes, there are talks for an Interview with a Vampire and Mayfair Witches crossover.

Obviously, Harry watches The Crown. You know the entire Royal family does, right?

Please make Lady Gaga on Wednesday happen.

I am simultaneously not surprised the Krewe of Endymion invited Mel Gibson to be the king of this year’s Mardi Gras parade and that they had to rescind the invitation. Both parts of this story — an organization that is predominately made up of rich middle-aged white folks invites a notorious racist antisemite to party with them only to have the rest of the city, which is 58% Black, say, “OH HELL NO” — is peak New Orleans.


I mean … can he even fit in that car?

Recover quickly, Rick Leventhal.

  1. How could you not include Michelle Yeoh’s acceptance speech? She spoke about the opportunities for aging women in entertainment and, when the band tried to cut her off, told the band to “… shut up, please. I can beat you up.”
    She could so they did.

  2. I really enjoyed the Golden Globes and watched it on Peacock App on my iPad.
    I had seen a few of the movies and a big fan of Abbott Elementary.
    The Golden Globes are more enjoyable to me than the Oscars.
