  1. I’m 8/8 so far.

    Adele’s Skyfall was easy to guess, but I need Adele to lose at the Oscars just to see everyone outraged.

  2. You’re awesome. I didn’t predict TV and I’m only 1-3. I got the easy one.

  3. Thanks for posting this thread, Craig.

  4. 8/9 now. Thanks, Costner. To be fair, I forgot he won at the Emmys last year.

    Loved seeing Bill Clinton on tv. Would have enjoyed it a lot more if it wasn’t for the fact that I didn’t feel 50/50 about Lincoln.

  5. Thanks for joining Alison!

    Did you see the crowd go crazy for Clinton?

  6. Oh yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The highlight of the night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. “Judi Dench! Where did SHE come from?” Hahaha, excellent presenting.

  8. Waltz was a great win. Danna deserved the musical score for THE LIFE OF PI, and Jennifer Lawrence really had no competition in that category. For the Oscar she’ll have a much tougher time.

  9. Max Greenfield and Mandy Patinkin were robbed. Glad Eric Stonestreet lost, though.

    Also, lol @ Jennifer Lawrence: “Harvey, thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to put me in this movie.”

  10. How about Tommy Lee Jones? Not amused by Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig

  11. Did you see the crowd go crazy for Clinton?

    Yep. It was really something.

    Yay, Anne Hathaway. Her speech is lovely.

  12. Jennifer Lawrence was hilarious.

    And lol, yeah Tommy Lee Jones just looked like “WTF are you people doing up there?”

  13. Yes it is!!!!!!!!!!

    Her testament to Sally Field is touching!!!

    Hathaway deserved this award as she deserves the Oscar!!!

    GO LES MIZ!!!!!!!!!!

  14. And yes Rodrigo, loved Jennifer Lawrence “kill” comment as it is so true!!! Ha!

  15. In case there was any doubt, Hathaway sealed her Oscar with the sweet shout out to Sally Field

  16. Wow. I liked Django as much as the next guy, but how did he beat Tony friggin Kushner?

  17. How indeed Craig. How indeed!!!!!!!!!!

    But I loved Tarantino’s work as well, and it’s clear the Foreign Press isn’t as smitten with LINCOLN as we are stateside!

    Will ARGO win now in the drama category?

  18. I’m glad Kushner lost, if anything.

  19. Haha Rodigo. Hater!

    Sam this is why I predicted Life of Pi!

  20. As far as Lincoln goes, if Tommy Lee Jones won Supporting, I would have been fine with it. Costume and Production design are worthy to root for in Lincoln.

    Also, anyone noticed DiCaprio giving Cheadle an angry look? Dude’s in character, I guess.

  21. AMOUR was a given of course. Nice little speech by Haneke, acknowledging the Austrian Schwartzeneffer. Ha!

  22. DiCaprio just can’t believe he lost…. AGAIN.

  23. Giving it to Tarantino over Kushner just illustrates how big of a joke these awards are.

  24. Well Craig, you had BRAVE called. Nice!

    I liked the film for sure, but I preferred FRANKENWEENIE.

  25. Kushner deserved to win for sure, and he will win the Oscar.

    But the foreign press doesn’t love LINCOLN like we do.

  26. Lena Dunham wins. I called it, but still… fuck this show, lol. Hell, I’d even take a Zooey victory over Dunham.

  27. I really enjoyed Brave. Didn’t see Frankenweenie so I can’t make a call as to whether it was more deserving (I’ve heard it’s great though). But when he got up and acknowledged Tim and said, “I’ve been watching your films forever” I kind of lol’d a little.

    RDJ is next everybody…

  28. I preferred Frankenweenie too, but I figured HFPA would go for Brave for some reason.

    Yeah Joel, even taking Kushner out there are other better screenplays

  29. @Rodrigo, you’re on the wrong side of everything this year, but it’s OK, we can disagree.

    @Sam: Tarantino is a great screenwriter, but I personally thought this was one of his weaker scripts. Regardless, Kushner did an amazing piece of writing. The HFPA simply loves to play favorites.

  30. Alison, what’s RDJ showing up for?

    Oh come on Rodrigo! Girls is great!

  31. They are one; the awards and the Dark Lord Harvey Weinstein.

  32. I think he’s just announcing something. But the voice over said ‘RDJ next’ before the commercial break so…


  33. Whatever one thinks of the winners, can we agree that Fey and Poehler rocked it this year?

  34. Girls is a 50/50 show. I can’t stand Dunham’s character, but the supporting cast is pretty good, especially Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet.

    I’m probably one of the very few people who didn’t love Lincoln, right?

    As far as Brave winning, I’m fine with it winning. Would have preffered to see Wreck-It Ralph winning. Wonder if Brave will keep the momentum going into the Oscars when it faces ParaNorman.

  35. Fey and Poehler are great together.

    Definitely a breath of fresh air after however-many-years of Gervais.

  36. Fey and Poehler were enjoyable.

  37. Jodie Foster was quite moving.

  38. Wow, Twitter just lost its shit over Jodie Foster’s speech. I thought it made complete sense.

  39. “I’m probably one of the very few people who didn’t love Lincoln, right?”

    You are the ONLY person, Rodrigo!!!


  40. Geez, what’s Twitter’s problem?

  41. Her speech made sense to me. I’m not on Twitter but from your comment, people thought she rambled or something?

  42. So Affleck wins! A laugh at the Academy.

  43. Half the people loved it, the other half didn’t get it or were annoyed by it.

  44. Fey and Poehler have been splendid, Craig, no question about that. They had me laughing many, many times tonight. Can’t remember the last time that was the case for any major awards show, honestly.

    …And here comes Hugh Jackman’s (figurative) day in the sun…

  45. Seriously Alexander. Though I have to admit the Seth McFarlane/Emma Stone Oscar announcement was pretty good too… and I generally hate McFarlane.

  46. @ Rodrigo: 100% agree on Wreck it Ralph over Brave. Brave certainly wasn’t bad, but I felt like Wreck It Ralph was a more interesting, more entertaining, more complete film. But I would commend Brave for a strong female protagonist and a complex mother/daughter relationship, so I’m OK with it.

  47. Can Harvey get Bradley Cooper the win?!


  48. HUGH JACKMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    GO LES MIZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Nope, he can’t.

    btw, it’s nice to see you around these parts again, Alexander. It’s been a long time.

  50. I just realized the Globes didn’t recognize a single network TV show this year, even in the comedy categories. Wow.

  51. Joel, the Globes usually favors cable shows in both Comedy and Drama. Odds are better if they’re freshman shows [see: Cheadle, Girls].

  52. LES MIZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  53. Thank god I got Comedy/Musical wrong

  54. lol

  55. Thank you, Alison. :-)

  56. HFPA has vindicated Sam, it would appear. Hahaha.

  57. The Cloonster!

  58. Jessica Chastain in the winner’s circle.

    Well, great performance, that’s for sure.

  59. Indeed Alexander!!!!

    LES MIZ will be the night’s BIGGEST WEINNER with 3!!!!

  60. DDL!

  61. Day-Lewis rules

  62. and Day-Lewis winning on cue with the year’s most spectacular performance in any acting category.

  63. yep he rules!!!!!

  64. Seriously, this guy must have gone to speech-writing school. His speeches are always so elegant.

  65. Argo it is.

  66. So Weinstein can’t weave his political magic with the Hollywood Foreign Press as ARGO cops the big prize!!!

  67. I hope Harvey comes up short with Oscar too.

  68. I hope Harvey comes up short with Oscar too.

    Me too. I’m kind of sick of him.

  69. LES MIZ is the night’s BIG winner!!!!!

    And one must wonder if the wins by LES MIZ and ARGO will tighten the Oscar race, what with the ballots still out there for a while.

    But LINCOLN is far more formidable with Americans, so this may add up to little.

  70. I doubt SILVER LININGS goes anywhere with Oscar, and tonight’s losses would seem to indicate the nominations won’t translate to wins.

  71. Can’t help but see Argo as one of those films that is perfectly all right unto itself, but can’t survive the inevitable backlash should it win Best Picture at the Oscars. Which is admittedly incredibly unlikely considering the Affleck “snub.”

  72. Yeah, I agree, Alexander. Most likely the Best Picture winner will be one of the films that also got a director nod.

  73. I don’t read too much into the Globe picks. I still say it’s Lincoln for the win.

  74. LINCOLN does indeed remain the solid favorite with Oscar, and frankly, I’d say that director snubs included it’s biggest threats are in this order:

    The Life of Pi
    Les Miserables
    Silver Linings Playbook

  75. I don’t think Les Mis has a chance without a Director nomination, but this is feeling like an odd year, so who knows?

  76. This does feel like an odd year.

    At this point I see Anne Hathaway as the only sure thing from Les Mis, but like you said, who knows?

  77. Yes and as I said above I think Hathaway sealed an already pretty sure thing with her speech, though she lost some style points for butting in to the producer’s speech to thank more people.

  78. Yeah, that was pretty strange. I understand that she felt bad that she forgot to thank some people in her speech but that wasn’t the time to make up for it. The winners are always interviewed after the awards and she could have done it then.

  79. It’s definitely an unpredictable year but it doesn’t feel like the Globes are going to unduly influence much this year.

    On the TV note: I checked, and as I suspected this is indeed the first year the broadcast networks have ever been shut out of every single category. Until this year, they’ve always won at least one (if not all) in comedy. 2011 was the first year the networks were completely shut out of drama. Maybe they should just start casting more Brits on network television?

  80. “Argo” is kid’s stuff next to “Zero Dark Thirty”. But awards tend to like children’s films….
