Movie awards shows always seem on the brink of extinction, at least as televised viewing. Non-comedian Millennial hosts, no hosts, format changes — nothing ever seems to make it that much different from previous years. Despite the forever ancient music, bored-as-hell hosts, and general sameness of it all, I always get pulled back in for a watch, though usually with less awe and more snark. Come with me as we re-live the 2020 Golden Globes via my random thoughts while tuning in…
Archie Yates is my baby Yoda
Ricky Gervais seems like someone’s tells-it-like-it-is uncle who’s forced to watch instead of napping in front of 24-hour news.
This transition music was old in the ’70s. They should bring in something newer, like Sugar Ray.
I should definitely be watching Ramy. This editor seems chill as hell.
Fashion trend I can get behind #1: killer lady suits. See: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Kate McKinnon, Ellen Degeneres, Portia de Rossi, Kae Alexander, Hildur Guðnadóttir, and Lulu Wang.
I wouldn’t mind if the rest of the telecast was Kate McKinnon telling anecdotes about Ellen’s wardrobe hand-me-downs. Sniffle.
Was that Jason Momoa in a formal tank top? It works.
I can’t believe “Miss Golden Globe” lasted until 2018(!). Google still hasn’t updated to Amabassador, though…
Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a “Thanks, Obama” meme.
Fashion trend I can get behind #2: huge ’80s puffy sleeves. See: Jodie Comer, Dakota Fanning, Olivia Colman, Lucy Boynton, Rachel Bilson, Janina Gavankar, Kaitlyn Dever, and Beyonce (wearing two huge Golden Globes!).
There’s no crying in Tom Hanks tributes! (Is this guy a YouTuber?)
Tom Hanks speaking TRUTH: “Showing up on time is one of the greatest liberating acts you can give yourself in a movie.” And in life, my friend.
Busy and Tiffany and Selma cheering on Michelle is a win.
Is it finally time to integrate dramas with comedy/musicals? They’ve never been so arbitrary. Actually, they always have been that arbitrary.
Hell yeah, Hildur Guðnadóttir is such a refreshing change of pace.
Brad Pitt pulling out the newest Titanic jokes from 1997.
Roman Griffin Davis and Archie Yates are my baby Yodas. Change my mind.
Awkwafina won every category?! Yes, yes she did. Oh, and she was also the first Asian-American to win Best Actress at the Golden Globes so that’s history right there.
And there’s Lulu Wang… who should have gotten a directing nod.
Alexa: was the 2020 Golden Globes vegan? Huh. Cool.
Did Joaquin just shoot his shot with Christian Bale? I ship it.
Loving Rooney’s Leia cosplay.
Oh hey, 1917… sure why not.
And it’s over. What have we learned for some Oscars improvement next month? Leave your deep thoughts in the comments.
