A NIGHT AMONG THE STARS

The stars were out in full force on Sunday night, and the Golden Globes were nothing short of epic. Were you able to catch them? If not, I’ve got a full recap and everything you need to below!

Although the Golden Globes have always been my favorite award show to watch, this year I suddenly realized that I didn’t quite know what a ‘Golden Globe’ was, or what exactly it meant for an actor to win one. I have now made it my mission this season, to be fully versed in all of the award show specifics: the rules, who votes, eligibility, etc…I’m hoping my pre-filled-out ballots will soon reap the rewards.

Here’s what you need to know:

The Foreign Hollywood Press Association was founded in 1943. It is made up of a group of foreign journalists that live in southern California, but serve as entertainments correspondents for their home countries through various publications. The FHPA was created to help these journalists gain access to celebrities and events, as well as to create a rapport with the Hollywood studios. Only allowing to add a maximum of 5 members per year, the FHPA currently has about 90 members. A great article that breaks this down more thoroughly was written by the Los Angeles Times. The show is held every year at the iconic Beverly Hilton Hotel.

In case you missed all the excitement of Sunday night, here are the list of nominees and winners (at the bottom). Now you’ll know what movies/shows to give your time to! I’ve added a ton to my must-see list. (Winners posted in red).

 

5 Things I Remembered From The Night:

5) When Amy Poehler was a boy…

excuse-my-blog-a-night-with-the-stars-2

 Amy made an appearance as Mr. Golden Globe, Tina Fey’s stubborn and ungrateful son. She then proceeded to bombard the male audience members by trying to figure out who her father was.

4) The laborious journeys the winners had to endure to finally make it to that stage…

It was cringe-worthy watching these winners try and get to the stage in a reasonable amount of time. By the time the actors made it to the microphone, half of their time was gone and they were being cued off stage. There had to be a better way to get these logistics in order ahead of time.

3) Jacqueline Bisset’s um…speech?

excuse-my-blog-a-night-with-the-stars-4

There are no words to describe this one-of-a-kind moment. Her jumbled, incohesive ramblings sent the internet in a frenzy. It was later reported that Jaqueline was originally told that her award category wasn’t meant to be called until much later, so she was a little caught off guard. That being said, I’m not sure I’m buying that there wasn’t a possible substance involved. Click here to watch her moment.

2) Amy Adams’ acceptance speech.

I just LOVED everything about this moment. You could tell Amy was genuinely grateful and shocked to be up there! In her speech she explained that she had moved to L.A. fifteen years ago in hopes of landing a commercial. She luckily was picked up by her manager due to an intuition her manager had. The story brought tears to my eyes! Click here to watch her speech.

1)  Amy Poehler’s win!

In my opinion, this was LONG overdue and I’m extremely happy to see Amy recognized for her work. And Parks and Recreation has only gotten better throughout the years! This was a great moment for her and she got to celebrate by jokingly making out with Bono when her name was announced! Love her.

…and NOW for my Top 10 Best Dressed List (Disclaimer: Many of my top picks aren’t actresses, but television correspondents. Hey, if you’re on the red carpet, I feel you are fair game.)
