Globes Trotting

Some sundry thoughts on the 63rd annual Golden Globes, which I, being a complete movie geek, actually watched:

The acceptance speech award of the night went to "The Office"'s Steve Carrel. What can you say? The guy is dang funny.

The Atta-Boy! award of the night went to Philip Seymour Hoffman, who deservedly won the Best Actor Globe for Capote. The odds-on favorite had been Heath Ledger for Brokeback Mountain. Ledger was excellent, but Hoffman really gave a timeless performance.

Do you think Anthony Hopkins feels like puking up fava beans and a nice Chianti every time he is forced to watch that clip from Silence of the Lambs? I mean, the guy has made some other movies, hasn't he?

Oh, and best of all ...

Scarlett Johannson won special recognition for her Golden Globes.

Riddle me this, sports fans: When does it pay to be an obnoxious gay fashion designer? When it means being able to freely grope celebrities on the red carpet, of course (hat tip to Voxefx).

Mr. Isaac Mizrahi, soon to be seen in Ang Lee's next film, "Grope That Mountain."

Scarlett Johannson is built? I just thought she was a great actress. It's about time someone pointed this out to me.
