Golden Globe Awards Live Blog

Jack Gray
AC360 Associate Producer 

Welcome to our 1st Annual Golden Globes Live Blog.  I'm your host and, in case you're wondering, my qualifications include once riding on the same elevator as Sarah Jessica Parker and working for several years in a video store/tanning parlor.  

I'll be with you from 8pm – 11pm Eastern Time.  Now, to be clear, we’re not advocating changing your channel from CNN. But if you’re going to watch the Golden Globes anyway, you might as well watch them with us as your running commentary. And frankly, you don’t even need to be watching the Golden Globes to enjoy the live blog.

Disclaimer:  I'm sure some of these movies/TV shows are connected to CNN through our parent companies Turner Broadcasting and Time Warner.  HBO, Warner Brothers and New Line Cinemas are just a few of our high-profile sister companies.  But seeing as how I've not gotten so much as a free hat or poster, I'm not in the tank for anyone.

If you want to take part in our Live Blog (and we hope you do) please follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (we don't like screaming)
3) Use your real name

    Im a late entry on the blog, checkin' in from the crappy weather capital of the world. There's nothing better than watching celebrities talk about how much they love other celebrities

    Spielberg's movies can be watched again and again and you just never get tired of them – I just watched Close Encounters and Jaws again recently.

    I was think the site is a little slow as well. I guess Jack is
    being overwhelmed. Help IT.

    @Stacy, I also think Tina was joking. I prefer the traditional thanks, more sweets! 😉

    alright, now that Spielberg is done we can go back to making fun of people.

    In 50-90y we could call Spielberg – a "modern prophet" ,whoknows...

    Jack,
    I agree with you...... Steve Spielberg is my favorite director all my life!!!! I watch Star Wars and ET...... That is my favorite movie...... 🙂

    @ Jolene: $100 on teleprompter!

    @ Jack: No comments on Marty's glasses. I had a client that wore the same pair just like Marty's until he died.

    Mr. Spielberg – you so "get away with it". Keep worrying about it though, and never stop making your insighful and imaginative films.

    I want his brain for a day. Just saying...

    Jurassic Park was a great flick as well. When I was a kid we rarely ever went to the show, but the whole family went to see that movie.

    On Spielberg:
    "He can't catch me on the grade!"
    "You're gonna need a bigger boat"
    "What's the poll at now? I'm an english teacher and coach baseball in the spring."
    And..."Phone Home!"

    What a classy guy.

    Yes, Spielberg is incredibly well versed and a class act for sure!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:05 pm |
  16. Jolene, St. Joseph, MI

    Is it me or is Spielberg reading a teleprompter speech?

    Awww, ET always brings a tear to my eye. My great-grandmother kind of looked like him.

    Haha. The dichotomy between these two sentences is something.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:04 pm |
  20. Jennifer - Michigan

    ET was half the reason for loving reeses pieces so much.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:03 pm |

    @Linda in Boulder

    Poor us in the middle hell of Colorado!

    Oh well, it's not like I know who most of these people are anyway 🙂

  22. Jack Gray

    Spielberg is such a class act. And a genius.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:02 pm |
  23. Chianne-Minnesota

    wow...how inspirational Spielberg is! What he's accomplished!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:02 pm |
  24. Renee

    @ Ann: You are SO truthful. When I see those Ciroc commercials I have to flip! I wonder if Trump is selling more vodka.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:02 pm |
  25. Stacy

    That was cool. Spielberg is awesome.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:02 pm |
  26. Jennifer - Michigan

    ET was a great movie – I really enjoyed it when it came out.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:02 pm |
  27. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    Ohhhh Jack!!!

    For all of you who, like myself, have not seen half of these shows, we now know what to watch. That is why I watch the GG

  29. Pati Mc

    OMG Jack, that was mean! (But I still cracked up!).

    Good to See A.R.Rahman winning award for Slumdog Millionaire. An amazing Indian background music director. Hats off!!!!!!!!!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:01 pm |
  31. Jennifer - Michigan

    Your Great-Grandmother looked like ET? That's funny – very weird, but funny.

    Jack,
    To me, the site is slow. But after 503 post the Golden Globe goes to: 'Jack Gray'

    Schindler's List is one of the most difficult films I have ever watched and that music makes me cry every time I hear it. But it was also one of the most rewarding films I have ever watched. Every person needs to see that film.

    Almost every film I love was done by Spielberg. Amazing!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:00 pm |
  34. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    I had a kitten that looked like ET once~

    January 11, 2009 at 10:00 pm |
  35. Stacy from NJ

    Isabel,

    Tina was joking. I doubt that she was using real screen names that have written about her.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:00 pm |
  36. Linda from Boulder

    Dulcie; I just had the same revelation.

    I thought it was live, too.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:59 pm |
  37. Renee

    Saving Private Ryan and ET IMHO were my favorites.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:59 pm |
  38. Dulcie - Denver

    Ooooh, I think Dark Knight was the only movie I've seen this year!

    Yay! That was an awesome film. I think I also need to rent Tropic Thunder. I think the premise sounds funny

    Awww, ET always brings a tear to my eye. My great-grandmother kind of looked like him.

  40. Ann

    And a big UGH to P Diddy. Don't we see enough of him on those awful Ciroc commercials?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:59 pm |
  41. Don, WA

    Yes, Spielberg sees through the theatre curtains.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:58 pm |

    Streep always will be amazing

  43. Roweena D'Souza, Mangalore

    We have a winner, first Indian to win a golden globe – A.R Rehman for Slumdog... sorry... could not help myself!

    Have you been to India Jack?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:58 pm |
  44. Stacy

    ET! Aw, childhood nostalgia.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:58 pm |
  45. Ann

    @Stacy, I think a bunch of people who aren't into politics and watch Tina's skits got that Palin was a joke. Thankfully!

    @Jack, I'm eating my daughter's Fruit Loops! Hows that for an old school snack!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:57 pm |
  46. Chianne-Minnesota

    those eyebrows are killer!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:57 pm |

    Listen to Jack name drop. Haha. I'm jealous.

    Steven Spielberg has had a amazing career. Such a wide range of movies he has brought the world.

    I must spend too much time watching AC360 – I don’t know a lot of these shows

    Dulcie in Denver.....
    I agree with you..... I always watch many time everyday on AC 360 as Live Blog!!!!! 🙂
