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

    Could they have seated that poor Tom Wilkinson any further back in the room? Apparently the seating chart chcik did not know he was gonna win. LOL.

    Have not seen Jon Adams, but heard it was phenomenal.

    Wow, that Simon Baker is a real knock out!! I remember him from "L.A. Confidential" and "The Guardian."

    January 11, 2009 at 8:16 pm |
  14. Polly, OH

    NPH! He was great on SNl last night. And a fan of Anderson's, I hear, so we all ought to root for him to win.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:15 pm |
  16. Stewie G. - Rhode Island

    I think Gran Torino should've been nominated for best film. Best movie I've seen in a while...

    January 11, 2009 at 8:15 pm |
  17. Jolene, St. Joseph, MI

    Jack, is Slumdog Millionaire good? Seems like it won a lot at the Critic Choice Awards.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:15 pm |
  18. Jack Gray

    Rumer Willis...with the cutaway shot to her stepdad Ashton Kutcher. There are no words.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:15 pm |
  19. Stacy from NJ

    Interesting fade to black. Ashton looks like such a proud papa! LOL

    January 11, 2009 at 8:15 pm |
  20. Bonnie

    Love Simon Baker

    January 11, 2009 at 8:14 pm |
  21. Larry

    Too bad RocknRolla isn't up for an award; fantastic film. Guy Ritchie is a great director.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:14 pm |
  22. Pati Mc

    Stacy – Johnny Depp, I know that is right! Mmm...

    January 11, 2009 at 8:14 pm |
  23. Donna from San Diego

    Go Slumdog Millionaire and Danny Boyle

    January 11, 2009 at 8:14 pm |
  24. Beth - NY

    Hey Jack are you having to moderate these comments by yourself or have you got some friendly CNNer to help?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  25. Jack Gray

    @ Stacy: I've seen most but not all. Revolutionary Road, Slumdog Millionaire, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, The Wrestler, Vicky Cristina Barcelona are some of my favorites.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  26. Pati Mc

    Thanks Jack, I can relax now that I know you and Sammy are comfy on the couch and not sitting alone at CNN. Ask Sammy if I may bum a smoke?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  27. Stacy

    @Panima: Have you seen him dance? Check out YouTube. Seriously.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  28. Presley

    I hope Frost/Nixon gets something tonight and Dexter.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  29. lee

    Jack, are you moderating the comments too?

    Does Sammy realize how cold it is outside up here? Like, there is an alternative to her sleeping cozy warm inside with you, outside for example.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  30. Jana, Indiana

    So Jack, has Sammi lite up yet and started drinking?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm |
  31. Larry

    Brad's Benjamin Button was pretty good, but kinda long:)

    January 11, 2009 at 8:12 pm |
  32. Lorie Ann, Buellton, California

    Jolene, I guess they think they'll never hit the prize again, so they thank the moon while bending the ear of us earthlings.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:12 pm |
  33. Jolene, St. Joseph, MI

    Well, if David Gergen wanted my iPod, I'd give it to him, no questions asked. He's the best!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:12 pm |
  34. Marcia, Warren MI

    Well, Jack Sammy is #1 in the 360 viewers hearts

    January 11, 2009 at 8:12 pm |
  35. Larry

    Marisa Tomei was great in The Wrestler; she's always great:)

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  36. Beth - NY

    Haha did you see that air kiss by anne hathaway! True hollywood!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  37. Pati Mc

    Now Jack, let's not call out The Gerg. Remember he has a lot of friends here. Oh, but so do you. OK, I digress.

    Love the Boss. His last CD was amazing. Check it out if you have not already.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  38. Stacy

    Johnny Depp. Now we're talking.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  39. Pamina

    It's good to know David Gergen has good taste in music.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  40. Carol B., Virginia

    Hi Jack! Are you and Sammy wearing L.L. Bean tonight? Even though there's the Razzies, I still think there should be a G. Globe prize for the male or female over-acting award. You know, the actor who stretches out a vowel too long or develops an overly quizzical look. Take care.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  41. Jack Gray

    @Patt Mc and Lee: I'm watching from home. Sammy is here on the couch with me but she's in a bad mood. Something about "that overrated dog from Marley & Me."

    January 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm |
  42. Stacy

    Jack have you seen every single one of these movies?

    Also, I live on a cul-de-sac. It's not so bad. Heh.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:10 pm |
  43. Stewie

    Is that slumcat movie any good?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:10 pm |
  44. Marcy

    My brother loves bruce, to the point where he painted a flag on his wall in his frat room and went as him to a halloween party. It's amazing that his work continues to get better and better rahter than the other way around as it is for some artist.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:10 pm |
  45. Pamina

    I'm glad Bruce Springsteen won- he is a total classic!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:10 pm |
  46. Presley

    Thanks Miley for sticking your tongue out. Lovely.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:10 pm |
  47. Beth - NY

    My two favourites won both so far. good times.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:10 pm |
  48. lee

    The Gerg stole your iPod, Jack? How sad.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:09 pm |
  49. Michelle

    Does anyone know how many awards Bruce has won
    for movie scores.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:09 pm |
  50. Joji
