Golden Globe Awards Live Blog

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/09/live.blog.golden.globe.jpg]

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

    Mickey Rourke has kind of a "Jack Nicholson "thing going. Maybe he'll start doing relationship/comedy movies.

    Yay Slumdog!

    Jack is Anderson really a Slumdog fan. They are booting
    people from the stage.

  24. Kitty, Canada

    Jo Ann, I hope Kate and Leo win as well. I loved Titantic and can't believe they are together again (well, kind of lol). This was a great night of awards.

    Yay for Slumdog!

    January 11, 2009 at 11:01 pm |

    Good for Slumdog. guess I know what I will go see tomorrow.

    Oh, and thank Anderson for letting you borrow the blog.

    Good night everyone, fun talking to you about something besides the "news!"

    January 11, 2009 at 11:00 pm |
  27. Jack Gray

    Big win for Slumdog Millionaire!!!! It's a terrific movie and I have to give credit to Anderson for being one of the first people to realize how great it was.

  28. Stacy from NJ

    Tom wanted the Reader to win. Did you notice he clapped different lengths of times for the films he was most likely to like?

  29. Jacqueline, NY

    Hi Jack,
    Just dropping in to say goodnight.

    Are they running out of time? It seems like they're racing through the remaining awards.

    SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE!!

    Best-dressed actress @the Globes – Penelope Cruz. So classy and beautiful!

    Scariest looking people at the Globes - Renee Zelwegger (really, what was she thinking) and Mickey Rourke (actually, he just looked sad. Is he that old or is it drugs or both). Amazing actor though.

    Great live blog, you are as awesome as always Jack. Give me a
    holler when you decide to take a trip to India 🙂

    Goodnight all, while I go deal with the Monday morning blues!

  34. Caren in Boston

    Jack, you're blogging from NYC about the Globes in LA? Why didn't they fly you there? It'd be cool to Twitter from the red carpet or something. Hope they let you do that for the Oscars. Night all!

  35. xtina, chicago IL

    this is bizarre. Isnt the GG venue IN Hollywood?! But it's tape delayed?

    I love Mickey's dog thank you! Tail wags! And cigs for Sammy!

  37. Vanessa, El Paso,TX

    im starting to place bets for mickey's win since you guys just posted he won. Hey the economy is pretty bad why not make some money right? maybe anderson can report on that, "live bloggers betting?" how the economy can get jumpstarted! lol

    January 11, 2009 at 10:58 pm |
  38. Jill

    The replay in other times will surely bleep out Rourke's swearing, and the finger his buddy gave him during his speech. I take it there was no 3-second delay here.....

    Slumdog is next, it is a celebration, a sort of coming out for the Indian film industry. Even though it was a Brit who made it, just the whole feel is beautiful. A complete film. By the way I loved in Bruges, some of the best lines and and a life time of a performance by Colin Farrell.

    @Vanessa: You'll be sharing your winnings, right? ;P

  41. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Kitty, I hope Kate wins the Oscar as well. I would like to see her and Leonardo win the Oscars, but I wouldn't mind seeing Mickey Rourke win this year.

  42. Ann

    Just saw a commercial with Venus/Serena and Eli/Peyton. Can we have a moment of silence for my NY Giants? So sad...

  43. Jeff

    Did Mickey just thank his dogs, then Bruce Springsteen?

    January 11, 2009 at 10:57 pm |
  44. Fay - CA

    Who would've thought Mickey Rourke would ever make a comeback – it will be interesting to see how he does at the Oscars.

    Here in the Mountain zone, the show was one hour behind real time. In Pacific, I believe, it's three hours.

    A.R. Rehman becomes the first Indian to win the Golden Globe Award.
    A proud moment for every Indian.
