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

    My Mom wanted Mamma Mia for Chirstmas and I obliged. I am so glad I did, or I may have never seen it. It was amazing! And I must admit, I remembered the words to ALL of the songs. LOL.

    For you Abba fans, and I know that you are out there – the DVD comes with a Karoake sing along with all of the lyrics. It is fun.

    I thought Pierce Brosnan's performance in Mama Mia was laughable. A singer he's not!!

    I heard Momma Mia was awful. Anyone care to give me another opinion?

    Johnny Depp is so gosh darned handsome.

    Am I the only one who didn't know that Meryl Streep was a singer? I mean, she's arguably the greatest living actress, but who knew she was so good at covering ABBA songs?

    @ Megan: Renee Z is a remarkable woman! She has done some wonderful work and has dedicated her life to raising $$$ for breast cancer. She also works on education projects with Bette Midler. I saw her crushing on Anderson too. Renee Z said she watches 360 each and every night.

    Chianne, I think you could probably count them on one hand. Those are the ones driving!

    ok, an nbc show about an nbc show paying tribute to the head of nbc JZ!

    @Fay: The problem with the Oscars is that they're soooooo long. I still remember the year they lined up every living prior winner. Took forever.

  12. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    isn't this fun? I love ABBA!

    I went to see Gran Torino today – Boy, what a good movie. Clint Eastwood did a great job. And it was shot in Michigan – Great shot of Jefferson Ave. with the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club in the background.

  14. Kristen

    What award did Depp present (I'm a huge fan!)?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:42 pm |
  15. Pati Mc

    Jo Ann – I second your comment about the historical dramas. I feel the same way about Documentaries.

  16. Carol B., Virginia

    Wow. 30 Rock is raking it in tonight. Feel sorry for the other shows, which are also very well written.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:42 pm |
  17. Dulcie - Denver

    Wow, I don't know who any of these young people are. Except for the Jonas Bros, because of Kathy Gifford. Ha!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:41 pm |
  18. Chianne-Minnesota

    A better question is, how many celebs are sober?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:41 pm |
  19. Laura, Boston

    re: Tracy Morgan... I don't know but who cares! That was the best moment of the night so far

    January 11, 2009 at 9:40 pm |
  20. Stacy

    @Ann: I wonder how many votes her dead-on parody swayed. I know a few people who switched from McCain to Obama because of Palin.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:40 pm |
  21. Don, WA

    Oh, 30 Rock...I was thinking 3rd Rock from the Sun, what the heck? ..stupid me.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:40 pm |
  22. Ken

    Who was that idiot from 30 Rock...is he drunk. Tina Fey must be embarrased and what was the rude comment regarding Kate Blanchett?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:40 pm |
  23. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    I am always glad to see historical dramas win awards, it gives me hope that quality programming will continue to exist.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:39 pm |
  24. Michelle

    Is Tracy Morgan sober?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:38 pm |
  25. Fay, CA

    @Stacy – thank goodness we'll have this live blog for the Oscars – they are generally sleep-inducing.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:38 pm |
  26. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    I love Renee Z..... I knew that she crushed Anderson Cooper!!!!! you guys remember that show....... Poor Anderson!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:38 pm |
  27. Stacy from NJ

    LOL at Tracy Morgon! And Alec!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:37 pm |
  28. Betty Ann, Nacogdoches,TX

    Tina Fey is soooo talented!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:37 pm |
  29. Stacy

    @Kristen: Yeah, he presented already. Sorry.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:37 pm |
  30. Gwen

    @Liz GF – I said the same thing, re: calling Virginia a Commonwealth. But, I'll take these great shout outs however they want to hand them out!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:37 pm |
  31. Ann

    Thank you Tina! Not only for 30 Rock, but for saving our country, too!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:36 pm |
  32. Pati Mc

    Whoo Hoo! My show won! My show won! Go 30 Rock! Funniest show on TV.

  33. Isabel, RJ, Brazil

    Besides the horrible dress, Renee Zellwegger seemed half angry. I think she also did not like the clothes. (Laughing. ..)

    January 11, 2009 at 9:36 pm |
  34. Brandi - bottom of the boot

    @Kristen,

    yes, you missed that gorgeous specimen of a man!

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

    Well deserved. 30 Rock is hilarious.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:36 pm |
  36. Jack Gray

    whooohoooo, 30 Rock!!!!!!!! Go Tina!!!!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:36 pm |
  37. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    I think "The Office" is overrated.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:35 pm |
  38. Kristen

    Did Depp already come on?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:35 pm |
  39. Liz GF

    Can someone remind Paul and the others that Virginia is a Commonwealth!!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:35 pm |
  40. Brandi - bottom of the boot

    jack, you are so hilarious!! adorable, just adorable.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:35 pm |
  41. Gwen

    Jack-how have you missed John Adams? Get the DVDs ASAP!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:34 pm |
  42. Pati Mc

    Thanks Renee. The devil made me do it. And he made her wear that dress. Heck, it looks like HE designed it! LOL.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:34 pm |
  43. Michelle

    Wow HBO is having a big night. I know the suits are
    thrilled.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:33 pm |
  44. Renee

    @ Pati Mc: Too funny on the Renee comment.

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

    Of course, I know absolutely nothing about fashion. So my opinion holds little weight.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:33 pm |
  46. Jack Gray

    I didn't see John Adams but I must give a shout out: Massachusetts represent!!

    January 11, 2009 at 9:32 pm |
  47. Stacy from NJ

    Is John Adams on track for a sweep?

    January 11, 2009 at 9:32 pm |
  48. Jen

    @ Renee Remember that the designers lend celebrities clothes and jewelry for free for these events.

    January 11, 2009 at 9:32 pm |
  49. Jana, Indiana

    Boy "John Adams" is cleaning up the awards tonight

    January 11, 2009 at 9:32 pm |
  50. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    You can bet that dress cost plenty! It just goes to show you that expense doesn't always equal taste.
