The Golden Globes Tonight

The Golden Globes are on tonight on NBC at 8pm! One more step for Jennifer Hudson to Oscar Gold? Another notch for Forest Whitaker and Helen Mirren as they just buy their time before Oscar night? Or will there be some big shockers tonight?

We can count on the Hollywood Foreign Press to throw a few curveballs and to honour some newbies.

Update: So, apparently you win something tonight at the Golden Globes if you're British (Helen Mirren, Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy, Jeremy Irons, Sacha Baron Cohen, Hugh Laurie, Helen Mirren again) or on the ABC Thursday night lineup (Ugly Betty, America Ferrera, Grey's Anatomy) or could have been in movies 20 years ago (Martin Scorcese, Eddie Murphy, Forest Whitaker, Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin (for 30 Rock) , Clint Eastwood via Letters from Iwo Jima). Only Jennifer Hudson doesn't fit into any of those categories. And Babel. Where did THAT come from? Really? Haven't seen it yet but heard its okay but not great.

Still, nothing too shocking (though Babel and Eddie Murphy suprised me a little) but nothing offensive at least (Tony Shalhoub and Patricia Arquette did not win. Thank goodness). Some good speeches (Meryl Streep is ALWAYS funny, Sacha Baron Cohen (good performance, overated movie) was HILARIOUS), and some heartwarming and cute moments (America Ferrera winning! The entire CAST of Ugly Betty winning!)

Still, nothing offensive at least. Though still a little annoyed at the supporting acting categories for TV being huge lumps from TV movies, Series and mini-series.

Also, I only just noticed that Beyonce and Meryl Streep were in the same category. That's just weird isn't it?
