    I'm surprised no one has started a thread. Just a few observations:

    Natalie Portman, apparently still growing back her hair after V for Vendetta, was channeling Audrey Hepburn more than usual.

    Drew Barrymore needs to visit the foundation store.

    I've always liked the more casual atmosphere of the GGs and the inevitable moment when a winner can't find the way to the stage.

    Hugh Laurie's acceptance bit was awesome!

    Why the **** wasn't it in HD?! [​IMG]

    My favorite part of the night wasn't a part of the ceremony, but rather the Scrubs commercial that aired after Steve Carell won Best Actor in a Comedy. [​IMG]

    Yes, this was a surprise. Maybe all the gear is in Torino? [​IMG]

    Does anyone feel like Geena Davis earned her Golden Globe?... it felt like a 'gimme' award. Her acting on Commander in Chief is the very definition of pedestrian. Kyra Sedgwick, Glenn Close and Patricia Arquette (I didn't understand all the hate for her Emmy win) are more deserving of the award.

    Other than that one award, everything else seemed to move pretty much as predicted.. I thought perhaps Phillip Seymour Hoffman would be upset by Heath Ledger but it was not to be.

    I was fantastically happy that the mega-talented Hugh Laurie finally managed to win this year... He really deserved to win for his bravura turn in last season's episode, "Three Stories".

    There were an awful lot of cutaways to Anne Hathaway as she was sitting next to Ang Lee. I imagine one of our members was quite pleased. [​IMG]

    So were people mucking up David Straithairn's name or is that how his last name is pronounced? I've always heard it as "straight-hair-n."

    Geena Davis had the best speech, though[​IMG]





    and she's WAY better than Patricia Arquette!

    I believe the correct pronunciation is 'strah-thayrn' (like the vowel sound in Cairn). One of those difficult to pronounce Scottish names. [​IMG]

    In the paper, they reported a funny exchange between GG winners, Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis. Hugh and Geena made light of making sure they called Stuart with the good news (Stuart being Stuart Little from the movies where Hugh and Geena played Mr. and Mrs. Little).

    I chase-played the show and just watched the parts of interest.

    I was thrilled to see Jonathan Rhys-Meyers win -- really didn't expect him to. And I'm so glad Philip Seymour Hoffman won -- certainly hope the Oscars follow suit.

    Felicity Huffman's win for Transamerica was a treat. Maybe now the Weinsteins and IFC will be willing to show it in more than 9 theaters.

    The film's a tough sell, and I doubt she has much chance for the Oscars. But the performance is as jaw-droppingly impressive as Phillip Seymour Hoffman's in Capote.

    Did anyone else find Gwyneth Paltrow as annoying as me with the way she kept pronouncing Anthony Hopkins name as "Antony".

    My entire life I have heard his name pronounced by countless people (announcers, talk show hosts, whomever) as....Anthony Hopkins

    I was okay with it as long as she wasn't speaking with a British accent.

    Did anyone else cringe when Dennis Quaid told that "rhymes with chick-flick" joke regarding Brokeback Mountain?

    Ditto... Nothing like a racy joke to wake the audience up, which it did from the reactions they showed. Who knows? It could become the next sub-genre. [​IMG]

    George Clooney regarding Jack Abramoff's unfortunate name.

    Mandy Moore looked a little heavier than usual, but of course that's still well within in the normal weight range.
