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

    Isn't it past the Jonas Bros bedtime?

    OK. Fess up. How many of you just said "Wall.E" out loud in Wall.E's voice when it won? You know you did.

    Doubt was ok, Meryl & Philip have done better work alone; pairing them as the protagonist-antagonist may not have been the right thing to do.

    Can someone please explain why the Jonas Brothers are famous, they don't seem to have any real talent?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:41 pm |
  5. Donna from San Diego

    30 Rock is an amazing show. TIna Fey, Tracey Morgan and Alex Baldwin ROCK!

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

    If anyone throws anything at the Jonas Brothers from the audience it's probably Kathy Griffin. Ah, New Year's Eve memories...

    I am back to the show!!!!!

    Elaine Stritch is without a doubt the funniest woman on earth. Great ref Stacy NJ.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:40 pm |
  9. Beth - NY

    Ricky Gervais = Premium British Export.

    Happy go Lucky = Not. I didn't get that film at all.

    And i'm English.

  10. Jolene, St. Joseph, MI

    My favorite TV drama is Lou Dobbs Tonight. Is that nominated?

    Ha! I would have chosen Nancy Grace's show. It's probably a good thing cable news programs don't get nominated for Golden Globes. I could just imagine what the red carpet would look like! 😯

    January 11, 2009 at 8:40 pm |
  11. Lorie Ann, Buellton, California

    Overserved, with boxed wine, no doubt. But since I can't see it, I'll take your word Jack.

  12. Max, Dallas, TX

    The Jonas Brothers? I was hoping Kathy Griffin's flying debris would have impaled them.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:40 pm |
  13. Felicia

    Loved J-Lo's dress. Hated Drews hair.

    I hope Tariji wins!!!!

    Jonas brothers...excellent role models...great family! Well done boys!

  15. Dane - Houston

    GAG. Really? The Jonas Brothers?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:39 pm |
  16. Stacy from NJ

    Brad Pitt looks like he wants to tackle Gervais and get him off stage. Ricky's drink is almost empty, hope he doesn't have to wait backstage for long.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:39 pm |
  17. Jack Gray

    @ Stacy NJ - congrats on the Elaine Stritch reference. Have you seen her on 30 Rock playing Alec Baldwin's mother? She's outstanding. 30 Rock is of course the best comedy on television, hands down.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:39 pm |
  18. Bonnie

    Jack - Ricky is almost as funny as you!!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:38 pm |
  19. Gwen

    Ricky Gervais may be my new favorite person.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:38 pm |

    Where was your ring J-lo?

  21. Donna from San Diego

    Love Zachary Quinto, can't wait for Heroes IV

  22. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    Is the crowd drunk? LOL!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:38 pm |
  23. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Alex, I think you are right about "House," it is becoming a one note show.

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

    Ooooh, the night of the "shhhhushes" Now we have Ricky Gervais. God that men is hilarious! I love the Britons!!!!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm |
  25. Max, Dallas, TX

    Interesting pick for favorite TV drama, Jack. I personally feel the "Lou Dobbs" lead never experiences any character development.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm |
  26. ohactually

    finally. going off the script.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm |
  27. Larry

    Revolutionary Road is a good film, not great, but good.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm |
  28. Jack Gray

    wow, now Ricky Gervais is shushing the crowd. I think they've been "overserved."

    January 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm |
  29. lanbruiser

    Who is the rude british dude shushing everyone...rude

    January 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm |
  30. Beth - NY

    I'm looking forward to the bit in the evening where someone files for divorce during their acceptance speech.

    Gotta happen sooner or later eh?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:36 pm |
  31. Stacy from NJ

    Jack,

    Is Elaine Stritch presenting?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:36 pm |
  32. Jana, Indiana

    What Jack, you like Lou Dobbs over Anderson Cooper 360? Hope Anderson isn't reading tonight. ha

    January 11, 2009 at 8:36 pm |
  33. Anthony Allentown PA

    Jack , Have you ever been to PA?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:36 pm |
  34. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    Jack~ Is 360 or Anderson nominated for anything at all?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:36 pm |
  35. Pati Mc

    Nah, I am looking forward to when the dude's from Price Waterhouse come out and bore us to tears explaining how the voting process works. Toting their briefcases. Which are handcuffed to their wrists. I mean....what if they have to pee? (and yes, I am well aware that is The Oscars gang, just makin' a little joke).

    January 11, 2009 at 8:36 pm |
  36. Alex

    Isabel,

    I don't think House will win. It's a great show, i love it, my favourite. But the 4th season was the worse so far, imo.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:35 pm |
  37. Presley

    I liked "Burn After Reading", is there a count how many times John Malkovich says "F@#*!!"???

    January 11, 2009 at 8:35 pm |
  38. Jack Gray

    @Isabel: Thanks for joining us from Brazil. I've never been there but it's on my list. My favorite TV drama is Lou Dobbs Tonight. Is that nominated?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:35 pm |
  39. Gwen

    @Brandi – bottom of the boot: I totally agree re: January Jones's name.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:35 pm |
  40. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Jack, Yeah, that is always an exciting moment!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:34 pm |
  41. lee

    Is Melissa and Joan Rivers there? I guess they don't do the red carpet anymore, do they?

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

    Max I agree – Mad Men is fantastic.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:34 pm |
  43. Isabel, RJ, Brazil

    Jack,
    I'm Isabel, I'm in Brazil, watching GG and also here with you.
    Do you have a preference for Best TV series (Dexter, House, In Treatment, Mad Men and True Blood)?
    I prefer Dr. House.

  44. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    Jack~ Beware of 95 year old blurters.Take it from me. . .

  46. Beth - NY

    Boo. I wanted Sally fields to win. Love Brothers and Sisters!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:33 pm |
  47. Stacy

    I remember when Anna Paquin won the Oscar when she was just a little kid. She's a bit more articulate this time.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:33 pm |
  48. Jack Gray

    I'm looking forward to the portion of the evening when they bring out a 95-year-old Hollywood legend who will blurt out the winner before she reads the list of nominees.

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

    january jones is cool jack but I think I would just change my name to Isabella. No last name. Very cool~

    January 11, 2009 at 8:32 pm |
  50. Pati Mc

    Yes Jack, it is the best name ever. Especially if she was born in May.
