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

    Xtina, the Globes are filmed at 5pm in Cali, but air at 8pm for them. It's pretty stupid, but I guess they get to see it at 8pm same as the east coasters. When I lived in LA, it always annoyed me to know that the show was going on live 2 miles from where I lived, and my mom back in GA was watching it, but I had to wait 3 hours to watch it myself! No sense at all!

    @Jo Ann – I know she's been nominated many times – really hope she WINS an Oscar this time! 🙂

    Jack–

    You need to check out Mad Men. It's great - forgot how much everyone smoked and drank in the 50's and 60's until I started watching it. Sammy would love it.

    Don't tell her, but I finally saw Marley and Me and I really liked it. I had read the book a long time ago and was a little hesitant about seeing the movie - as they don't usually live up to the book - but this one was pretty good.

    Jack needs to ween poor Sammy off of those cigarettes...get her one of those nicotine patches instead...

    Things must be tough.. Moet bottles on the tables..guess the Cristal

    Grey Goose.

    Mickey Rourke has smoked a lot of cigarettes and drunk a lot liquor in his life. just a thought

    January 11, 2009 at 10:53 pm |
  17. Jack Gray

    The Wrestler is a tremendous film. Intense and very sad, but extremely compelling.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:53 pm |
  18. Stacy

    @Vanessa: Are you placing bets? You could make some cash off of this situation. Haha.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:53 pm |
  19. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    I am not surprised to see Mickey win, but someone should have given him a comb!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:52 pm |
  20. Mary

    Jack...get Anderson to let you go to LA for the Oscar's...then you can Live Blog from there and make it up to all of us out here!

    I still picture Mickey Rourke in "Spun" every time I see him, and can't get that outta my head. Good roll for him though in his latest.

  22. Max, Dallas, TX

    I loved "Milk." I hope it's up for more accolades in the next awards show.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:51 pm |
  30. Emma

    Wow, Susan Sarandon didn't waste any time announcing the winner.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:51 pm |
  31. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Kitty, Kate has been nominated for the Oscar five times.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:51 pm |
  32. Stacy from NJ

    OMG Mickey Rourke won Best Actor! I was thinking he would probably be the most interesting speech!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:51 pm |
  33. Kitty, Canada

    Wow, Mickey Rourke is looking rough.

    January 11, 2009 at 10:51 pm |

  37. xtina, chicago IL

    January 11, 2009 at 10:50 pm |
  38. Pati Mc

    Ok, I may have to watch Mad Men just because of that gray haired guy that looked like and older Anderson. Heh!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:50 pm |
  39. Amanda Walton-Algonquin Park

    Missed the Awards, but congrats to all those who won, and those who didn't you know it's an honor to be nominated–right!

    To bad Heath Ledger passed, he was great in The Dark Knight, a personal favorite of mine...but who doesn't like anything Batman!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:50 pm |
  40. Emma

    @Vanessa, I second that. I normally don't watch the Oscars; however, I will watch it for the live blog.

  41. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    Vanessa,
    Only I am living west coast will catch up soon so After that East coast will finish GG this time, we taped delay west coast.......

    January 11, 2009 at 10:49 pm |
  42. Fay - CA

    Yay! Mad Men won? That's a great show, when the heck is it coming back on?

    January 11, 2009 at 10:49 pm |
  43. Maureen T

    I've heard alot about Mad Men but have not had the opportunity to catch it. Maybe I should try to catch it!

    January 11, 2009 at 10:49 pm |
  44. Max, Dallas, TX

    Jack- I don't think i can look at even your tiny, tiny picture. You haven't seen a single episode of Mad Men? You're totally missing out. It's the most amazing show, hands down. AMC is amazing lately- Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Misogyny and meth production, respectively- what could be better viewing?

    January 11, 2009 at 10:49 pm |
  45. xtina, chicago IL

    Im confused; so the show is the same for EST + CST but mountain and pacific are just starting?

    January 11, 2009 at 10:49 pm |
  46. Jack Gray

    Sorry to those of you in other time zones. I'll be signing off once the awards finish airing here on the east coast, which is around 11pm or so. I mean, I have to take my dog for a walk...she's been very patient. She hasn't had a cigarette in like three hours.

  47. Roweena D'Souza, Mangalore

    aw... Mad Men, okay expected!

  48. Vanessa, El Paso,TX
