Covering the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards: Daniela Thoughts
Tonight I am at work, eastern standard time, prepping the content for MTV’s flipbook on the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards. It’s not done yet so you can check out the “hot off the presses” pre showÂ red carpet action here, thanks to my lovely coworker sitting behind me.
I am lazily live blogging this, as the wire services have yet to post images of people actually walking away with their awards from the podiums so I am sort of killing time until then…
11:02pm – Before you fill your head with my incoherentÂ ramblings, check out this article on early awards coverage…
..America Ferrera just won for Best Actress inÂ a Musical or Comedy series, and as soon as she got off the stage, she was bombarded with weird inappropriate questions about what did it feel like to “not” be the first choice for her role on Ugly Betty. Talk about raining on someone’s parade! Thanks, Debbie Downers! SheÂ responds with,Â “uhhhh – I didn’t know that but I thank blah blah”, trying to smooth the moment over. Akward! Anyway, I like her on Ugly Betty a lot and feel she deserved to win…. Even if I do think the Golden Globes are the bootleg Oscars.
I’m annoyed that I didn’t write anything about Meryl Streep winning best performance by an actress in a Motion Picture, so here is the transcript from my ongoing chat session with a close friend (referred to as “X” so I don’t get my butt kicked:

I was about to complain that Warren Beatty, Cecil B. DeMille Award winner, won’t shut up, but he just made a very cute comment to his wife AnnetteÂ – “Thank you for always making me feel like a promising newcomer”…. aw.
Excerpts from Sasha Baron Cohen’s speech (winner for Borat)
“In the making of this film I saw an uglyÂ side of America not normally seen by the light of day – my costar’s anus and testicles… faced with a choice – death or to breathe in the air that had been trapped in a small pocket between his buttocks for 30 years… if it was not for that rancid bubble, i would not be here today.”
