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

    Didn't Drew Barrymore crush all over Anderson like a school girl on R & K?

    Drew and Jessica are some adorable pair. They look like they could be mother and daughter. Cannot wait to see their new film. Gray Garden, I believe it is.

    Good luck with that, Jack. Me thinks Mr. Anchor will have something better to do. And define "well." You mean we can't have any drunken brawls?

    if tonight goes well maybe I can persuade Anderson to make a cameo during the Academy Awards Live Blog.

    Oh no....sounds like you will have more cars to wash, organutans to watch.... Good Luck!

    @ Renee-Tom Cruise is a complete nut. But he is talented and easy on the eyes.

    I wish I want live east coast, but just delay taped on west coast tonight!

    If Anderson makes a cameo appearance then i vote Erica Hill makes one too.

    So Jack,
    We can say that everything is going GREAT!
    Mr Cooper,
    Everything is going very well ... laughing!

    "Californication" will probably win thanks to the extra publicity supplied by David Duchovny's "addiction."

    Isabel,

    30 Rock

    Forget about Benjamin Button. How about the Curious Case of Brad Pitt's Moustache?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:52 pm |
  12. Pati Mc

    OMG Jack that would be so cool if Anderson would do that. Thanks!

  13. Presley

    @Carol B., Virginia, yes and his longtime partner is vanessa paradis, an ex-Chanel model and apparently a french recording artist as well.
    I know, how and why I know that stuff.....

    January 11, 2009 at 8:51 pm |
  14. Beth - NY

    Yes I saw Happy Go Lucky.

    She acted very well in it but it is a film with little plotline so difficult to follow. Funny in places but overall i felt it was disappointing. Depends on your taste.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:49 pm |
  15. Renee

    Wow! Just saw Tom Cruise twice this week. Once on 360 and now the GG. I know he is a nut but it makes me feel like high school again. Young and stupid.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:49 pm |
  16. Jack Gray

    to all of you who have asked: if tonight goes well maybe I can persuade Anderson to make a cameo during the Academy Awards Live Blog.

  17. Stacy from NJ

    I love Emma Thompson.

    And every time the camera finds her Marisa Tomai is smiling.

    Ok....Sally Hawkins...great movie, great performance...but ....lets practice the acceptance speech next time...

    January 11, 2009 at 8:48 pm |
  19. Pati Mc

    As they just went to break and showed Alec Baldwin, he totally just drooped an f-bomb. I can read lips. LMAO.

    Jack and bloggers,
    What is your bet for the TV series – Musical or Comedy (30 Rock, Californication, Entourage, The Office, Weeds)?
    Just don't tell me that is 'Californication'. Californication is incomprehensible to my mind.
    I love 'The Office'.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:48 pm |
  21. Beth - NY

    The Brits are storming it. Wahoo!

    Gotta love the homeland

    January 11, 2009 at 8:48 pm |
  22. Pati Mc

    Beth NY – Thanks! I knew I could not be the only one! LOL.

    @ Jo Ann: You were reading my mind. A cleaned up pirate I suppose.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:47 pm |
  24. Kristen-University Park, PA

    She is babbling too much for me.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:47 pm |
  25. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    BettyAnn!!
    me too!!! I love that movie Mama Mia!!! that is so good movie!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:47 pm |
  26. Carol B., Virginia

    Isn't Depp an ex-pat living in France and why should I know this?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:46 pm |
  27. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Alex, I am willing to give "House" a second chance, but I prefer dramas like CSI and "Law and Order SVU."

    January 11, 2009 at 8:46 pm |
  28. Donna from San Diego

    Has anyone seen Happy-Go-Lucky with Sally Hawkins? Just want to get some feedback on this since she just won.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:46 pm |

    @ Renee @8:44 PM: Plus, Jack manages his job on CNN during the second shift. He's phenomenal.

    First tears: the woman whose name I don't know from the movie I didn't see but hear is supposed to be excellent.

  35. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Johnny Depp looks better than usual tonight. He only looks a little bit like a bum.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:45 pm |
  36. Beth - NY

    @Pati Mc

    Not out loud, i'll leave that for the extra 'special' ones out there.
    but certainly in my head. haha

  37. Jolene, St. Joseph, MI

    I loved Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:44 pm |
  38. Pati Mc

    I want Johnny Depp to come to my house and record my voicemail message. heh heh.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:44 pm |
  39. Renee

    @ Jack: How do you have ALL this time for movies and TV?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:44 pm |
  40. Dorothy-CA

    Hi Jack – great you are doing this. I haven't read all comments yet, but is Anderson anywhere around the GG tonight?

    January 11, 2009 at 8:44 pm |
  41. Presley

    Johnny Depp, looks so, um, comfortable....

    January 11, 2009 at 8:44 pm |
  42. Michelle

    Johnny Depp , the best actor on the planet.

    OMG! I love Mama Mia!

    January 11, 2009 at 8:43 pm |
  44. Jack Gray

    I want Johnny Depp to record my outgoing voicemail message.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:43 pm |
  45. Alex

    Jo Ann,

    I think the 5th season is way better then the 4th season. I could see them get back to the early success. But i don't want to write spoilers so i'll leave it there. 🙂

  46. Stacy from NJ

    Jack I have a broadway soft spot so I have been a fan of hers for years. She should present all awards! And 30 Rock is a awesome show. She is perfect for his mom.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:42 pm |
  47. Carol B., Virginia

    Elaine Stritch is great. Hopefully, she'll continue on 30 Rock. It's a show with great wry humor.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:42 pm |
  48. Michelle

    Hey the Jonas bros are not that bad.

    January 11, 2009 at 8:42 pm |
  49. Brandi - bottom of the boot

    i love kathy for throwing stuff at the Jonas Brothers!

    Oh, that is why the audience is getting shushed, Kathy Griffin. That explains~
