She won! The Golden Globe Results


Didn't Tina and Amy do a fantastic job in their last time out at the Globes? I wish they would get a regular gig together; they're the perfect couple. One of their best jokes of the night was Tina's zinger about the Golden Globe's Lifetime Achievement Winner George Clooney and his beautiful and uber-accomplished wife —
"George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer, who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award." 
I also really loved their "Who would you rather?" bit; especially the choice between Boyhood and Birdman directors, Richard Linklater or Alejandro Iñárritu?
Poehler: "Iñárritu. One take. Two hours straight, no stopping"
Fey:  "Linklater, five minutes once a year." 
And the winners were a fantastic bunch, as were the so-called losers. I really would have loved to see Desplat win for his beautiful score for The Imitation Game but beyond that, no complaints at all.
As far as the speeches went, it was the men who moved me. I thought the men made some lovely speeches tonight, particularly George Clooney who made it pretty clear how much Amal meant to him and how long he'd waited to fall in love — 53 years. Michael Keaton who won Best Actor acknowledgement of his best friend being his son got me all choked up. And I thought Common's acceptance speech on behalf of the Best Song 'Glory' from Selma struck a wonderful aspirational tone.
