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

    Renee may be a beautiful woman–but who picked out that awful dress???

    I thought her dress was OK, for the most part.

    I've seen Renee before and she usually looks beautiful but tonight.....as Nana Gray would say: For the love of Pete!

    @Jack Gray, I know! My roommates and I noticed the hair first, but the dress is equally awful. She also seems to have no real interest in being there. WTH, indeed.

    Eeeck gads, can she not do something with her hair and can she not read the screen.

    @Jack: Looks like she might have been smoking something just before going on there. Weird.

    @Renee~ celebrities may not feel the recession but you just wait until the depression. 😉

    Have any big celeb's got drunk and read bad poetry at the podium yet?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:28 pm |
  17. Jack Gray

    YIKES! Renee Zellwegger!!! What the heck??!!!

  18. Fay - CA

    I messed up my tape of 30 Rock and missed most of the show, but that ONE scene of Liz Lemon mistaking a little boy for Peter Dinklage's character made my night. Hilarious.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:28 pm |
  19. Stacy from NJ

    Jack, with a baby in it...right? ;o)

    January 11, 2009 at 9:28 pm |
  20. Stacy

    @Fay: Well, he's already got the green light for the Oscars. I can't remember the last time I've watched an award show without live chatting (or a SOTU for that matter).

    January 11, 2009 at 9:28 pm |
  21. Pati Mc

    Wow. Movies being filmed and Amy Poehler? OK Jack, I am officially jealous of your neighborhood.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:27 pm |
  22. Renee

    Boy, the celebriities are not feeling the recession.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:27 pm |
  23. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    Congrats Laura Linney and Alec Baldwin!!!!! That is so great for them!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:26 pm |
  24. Jack Gray

    @ Kristen: 30 Rock is the funniest show on television.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:26 pm |
  25. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Jack, "Sin City" was the last time I even remember Mickey being in a movie! He is an excellent actor, when he wants to be.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:25 pm |
  26. Fay - CA

    @Stacy – maybe Jack should do this for ALL the awards shows – they can certainly use a little help!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:25 pm |
  27. Kristen-University Park, PA

    Rumor Willis is getting quite a few shout outs tonight.

    I might have to watch 30 Rock. Never seen it, can someone vouch for it being funny enough to watch?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:25 pm |
  28. Jack Gray

    @ Stacy and Bonnie: Amy does look great. She lives in my neighborhood and you would never know she just had a baby. Aside from the stroller she pushes around.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:25 pm |
  29. Carol B., Virginia

    Just curious if A.C. & E.H. are really gonna blog or if it's a ghost writer or ghosting, if you will.

    Alec Baldwin (Best Actor) in 30 Rock is deserved.
    I think this is the role of his life. He is very funny!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:25 pm |
  31. Pati Mc

    Come on Jack, I wam waiting for you to make a comment about Patrick Dempsey's huge head of hair! We all know how you are.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:24 pm |
  32. Bonnie

    Yea Slumdog Millionaire and Alec Baldwin!! Boy, Amy sure looks good for just having a baby!!!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  33. Jennifer - Michigan

    Alec Baldwin still hasn't straightened out his tie?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  34. Fay - CA

    It will be an amazing comeback for Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei if they win an Oscar this year – Marisa's first Oscar has always been viewed as a joke and Mickey Rourke had basically become a joke over the years.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  35. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    In this case # 2 is good for Alec!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  36. Stacy

    Alec Baldwin is really good, but I have a soft spot for Steve Carell.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  37. Pati Mc

    Isn't Duchovny really "fighting demons" in real life? That was messed up.

    Yes, a win for 30 Rock! Love it!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  38. Alex

    There you go, Alec Baldwin.

  41. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Sometimes I wonder if these people even bother glancing at a mirror before they leave the house.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:22 pm |
  42. Stacy from NJ

    Amy Poehler and Patrick Dempsey = oddest pair of the night

    Amy post baby looks awesome tho!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:22 pm |

  45. Kristen-University Park, PA

    Jack I have never had Coco Krispies before. I'm a Frosted Flakes gal, but enjoy.

    How cool is that Julia said hi to your dog. Did you get a hi also?
    Haven't seen the trailer but love Julia so know it will be a good film.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:21 pm |
  46. Jack Gray

    MUCH DESERVED win for Slumdog Millionaire in the screenplay category.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:20 pm |
  47. Stacy from NJ

    Laura Linney did win for John Adams. Sorry you guys can't watch it live.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:20 pm |
  48. Stacy

    @Fay: The show is live here and I'm still barely paying attention. The blog is much more interesting.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:20 pm |
  49. Max, Dallas, TX

    GET IT, Slumdog! OH YES!
