Anything but Miserable!

I'm thrilled!  Les Miserables won the Golden Globe for Best Picture in the musical or comedy category with Hugh Jackman taking best performance by an actor and Anne Hathaway best performance by an actress in a supporting role. Anne Hathaway's shoutout to Sally Field was so sweet and heartfelt, one of my favorite moments of the show.  Silver Linings Playbook, another of my favorite films of the year, based on a book or otherwise, earned the very poised Jennifer Lawrence, a best actress statue. The Globes don't break down their screenplay award into 'adapted' and 'original' like the Academy Awards do; they gave the prize to Quentin Tarantino. I was rooting for Silver Linings Playbook for David O. Russell's superb adaptation. It was an extraordinary night with frankly, no one film completely cleaning up - although Les Miz came closest with 3. In the TV world it was a bit different with Homeland coming up again and again.



The other award in the book to movie category was Michael Danna's win for his gorgeous Life of Pi score.
The show itself was fantastic as entertainment; Tina Fey and Amy Poehler absolutely ruled, which we knew they would. Talk about fresh! Hilarious without being super bitchy. I had a blast watching and 'live tweeting from my couch' last night. I've never done that before. I lost power about halfway through - my last tweet was sent out at 6:53 PST when Lena Dunham won Best Actress in her HBO comedy series, Girls. Then the show went on to win Best Comedy!

While I had a good time tweeting, I was almost relieved when my electronics went kaput so I could kick back, sip some champagne and watch the show. I'm pretty good at multi-tasking but I did feel that every time I was busy typing and tweeting, I was missing something. Thank God I didn't miss that grumpy Gus look from Tommy Lee Jones when Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig were fooling around with the Best Actress/Comedy category! How about you? Does tweeting take you out of the experience or does the joy of the conversation make you take to twitter to express yourself?

Congrats Les Miz!
