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

    Although I prefer his dramatic roles, I am always surprised at how well Brad Pitt handles comedy. He was great in "Snatch!"

    I was hoping for a Dexter win. I've recently become obsessed with that show.

    Hi Jack!

    Could you tell me when they will hand out the best tv series award? Is it close to the end or it will come soon.

    Thanks.

    The Coen Brothers are great. I think I'm one of the few people who liked Burn After Reading. but wait, is Beverly Hills Chihuahua NOT nominated for Best Picture?

  25. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Longoria looked pretty good, but she was no match for Simon Baker!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:26 pm |

    Back to the Red Carpet, Megan Fox looked HOT!
    A lot of bad hair and too many accessories for many though.

  32. Anthony Allentown PA

    I love True blood. I was surprised that the two lead actors had such a strong Aussie accent.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:23 pm |
  33. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    full disclosure: I think CNN's Jeff Toobin had something to do with the movie Recount. I think it was based partly on an article he wrote. Yay Jeff!
