Welcome to our 3rd annual Golden Globes Live Blog. I'm your host and, in case you're wondering, my qualifications include once meeting Ricky Gervais at the Chateau Marmont and working for several years in a video store/tanning parlor.

I'll be with you from 8pm Eastern Time until the conclusion of the East Coast telecast. 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 another year has gone by and I've not gotten so much as a free hat or poster, I'm not in the tank for anyone. Except for Betty White. Not that she's even nominated. I'm just in the tank for her in general.

If you want to take part in our Live Blog (and we hope you do) keep in mind that you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst – and that includes $#&*)

    I honesty cannot believe Inception didnt win anything! What is going on, The Social Network was an ok movie, it was not the best movie this past year!

    I predicted most of the winners. Wish there was more of Ricky Grevais on the show though. Thank you for your commentary Jack Gray and fellow critics! Goodnight.

    WOW – they are bleeping "J.C." and "I got laid..." by Paul Giamatti. (and let "buster their asses" go through. Go figure.

    Usually the Golden Globes are more laid back, informal and funny. Is it just me or does it seem like this telecast is feeling too uptight? Sure, there were a few funny speechs but for some reason, I feel let down. Someone pass the wine!

    Michael – this is class in the first degree

    January 16, 2011 at 10:54 pm |
  15. Brandon

    Michael Douglas was the "Surprise guest"? he's been in the front row the entire show. or is he going to bring out his dad?

    Paul Reubens needs to come onstage and hit Ricky Gervais with a chair while asking him "how he likes that punchline" (Anderson Cooper plug)

    January 16, 2011 at 10:53 pm |
  18. jojo

    Copious applause for prompt superior moderating on this blog!

    Geoffrey Rush, Jimmy Durante– separated at birth?

    Only movie represented this year I saw was at my sister's house – "Alice In Wonderland" – which was great, Depp is a De-Near-Oh (Yo-Ho), in the great way – And then there's DeNiro.

    Sandra: beauty, grace, and class, personified.
    David – you're funny.

    I'm starting to wonder if Helena Bonham Carter had a great hair, makeup and costume department for the movie Fight Club or just showed up to the set in whatever the hell she felt like presenting that day of shooting

    January 16, 2011 at 10:49 pm |
  25. Amy

    Seems like the HFP doesn't want to offend their golden tickets and muzzled Ricky. Too bad television audience will be falling asleep...yawn.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:49 pm |
  26. jojo

    What happened, Sandra? Unnecessary.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:48 pm |
  27. Lily

    Movie so-so but love Colin.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:48 pm |
  28. Hayley

    WOOHOO!!!!!! Colin!!!!! You are amazing 🙂 He portrayed stuttering phenomenally

    January 16, 2011 at 10:48 pm |
  29. Mechelle

    Sandy looked miserable!

    January 16, 2011 at 10:48 pm |
  30. Mary Jane

    Hey, they asked for Ricky. He's the best part of this show and the most interesting. These people take themselve so seriously. I didn't realize Hanks was so full of himself.

    YEAH for COLIN!

    January 16, 2011 at 10:48 pm |
  31. Margo

    OMG!! Sandra looks like a Cher!!!

    January 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm |
  32. lilly

    Ricky is no longer funny, his 5th grade jokes suck now:(

    January 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm |
  33. Brandon

    They need to go drag Charlie Sheen out of a hotel room to present. That would rescue this boring broadcast pretty solidly.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm |
  34. Ne

    Look – Sandra is channeling Morticia

    January 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm |
  35. Cher

    Hate Sandra in heavy bangs

    January 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm |
  36. Brandon

    Amazing how much audience noise there is coming out of the break

    January 16, 2011 at 10:46 pm |
  37. David

    Sandra: beauty, grace, and class, personified.

    "Cheers!" to our host for such a pleasant blog.
    Thanks...please pass me some roasted pecans. My wine needs a snack.

    Gervais is no "Steve Martin" in the sense he can dig at the ribs and still have the audience laugh alone. Production probably decided the loud groans and borderline jokes weren't worth the additional time they were able to offer the winners. Doesn't seem to be a reaction to something awful he said, just forcing him to keep it simple and stop making it about himself. He's already said this will be his last time and after having his time reduced, he's probably happy about that.

    Alicia keyes just had a baby. Imguessing that's why she looks heavier.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:45 pm |
  41. Diva CS

    At least Ricky got paid upfront. I'm sure the voice announcer job thought he wouldn't have to work as much as he did tonight. Needs more HAPPY Ricky.

  42. jojo

    Loved the Kids are All Right!

    January 16, 2011 at 10:44 pm |
  43. Margo

    from that last commercial, it sold me on making Thursday nights my all NBC night for the comedies.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:44 pm |
  44. Anne

    So do you think that's what Tom Hanks was talking about so animatedly at his table earlier in the night? That he didn't like Ricky's jokes?

    January 16, 2011 at 10:43 pm |
  45. Dave

    DeNiro's bleep -> "Christ, I made nothing but hits?" that's what they bleeped???

    January 16, 2011 at 10:42 pm |
  46. jojo

    Yes, noticing the cards Gervais is holding prominently in front of him, reading. : )

    January 16, 2011 at 10:42 pm |
  47. Jack Gray

    The Kids Are All Right is a wonderful film. Charming, moving and funny.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:42 pm |
  48. Brandon

    STILL no speeches cut-off by music.

    January 16, 2011 at 10:42 pm |
  49. BettyAnn, Nacogdoches,TX

    with you Margo~ Natalie needed to leave the glitz neclace off. Too much glitz. The gown stood alone!

    If Ricky was pulled? it's because celebreties were upset over being told the truth.
