My ridiculous and frivolous review of the Golden Globes that is completely unneccessary.

Let me just say that I told you so. Whatever I have said, the big money reviewers and writers will say the same thing. If you even bother to read them.

So I’ve had several vodka tonics,  I can’t be responsible for content:

What was with Madonna? Can she thaw just a little bit please? Since when is the Material Girl so freakin’ serious? When she went up to accept her award for best song for W/E, a movie which she also directed, she was stoic, silent and calculating in her words. I thought someone died. Or she was going to dedicate her award to something important. No, she was just pontificating in her fake British accent. How I wish she would lighten up. Or remove the stick up her ass.

Best line of the evening:

When Seth Rogan comes out with Kate Beckinsale and says, “I’m Seth Rogan, and I am hiding an enormous erection.” To the commencing of giggles from Kate Beckinsale and she couldn’t read the teleprompter. I will confess, James would probably concur. He wouldn’t say so though on TV for millions to hear.

Best presenting duo-

Tina Fey and Jane Lynch. Carry on…

Hottest presenting duo

Channing Tatum and Jessica Alba

Movies I haven’t seen, but need to-

The Artiste

The Descendants

  • Congrats to Octavia Spencer for winning for her portrayal in The Help. That movie was so many things. And I think she feels the same way too. Way to go and she had a wonderful quote from Dr. King in her speech.
  • Shame on NBC for putting a short leash on Ricky Gervais. What are you afraid of? He only says what we all think.

Favorite Anglophile Thespian:

Kate Winslet. Beautiful, poised, talented and always real.

Old fella still Rockin it:

Sydney Poitier. Damn he’s distinguished.

Older woman still Rockin it:

Helen Mirren (second favorite Anglophile Thespian)

  • I love me a video montage of an actor’s career. Morgan Freeman is a stud. From Electric Company to Invictus. God love him.

Skinniest woman that I want to hate but hey, if it’s her metabolism that makes her so thin after three children then okay:

Angelina Jolie

  • Kudos for Modern Family and Sofia Vergara’s acceptance speech.

Worst dress on a hot woman:

Jessica Biel decided to wear her wedding dress to Justin Timerlake with her Spanx briefs showing.

Actress who always acts like she’s not expecting it, but deserves it every year:

Meryl Streep

Actress who still does her Jazzercize DVD’s even though she’s like 90 years old:

Jane Fonda. Can’t deny that she’s still hot from the neck down.

  • okay so The Artiste won instead of Bridesmaids. Whatever. I guess it’s cinematic or something. Nothing beats Melissa McCarthy in the bridal shop. Period.
  • Apparently I have to see Shame. Michael Fassbender can play golf without a club according to George Clooney.
  • Dear Harrison Ford: Please remove your earring. You are not in college or in a garage band. Thanks.

I guess before the Oscars I will be seeing the Descendants. I think it’s going to win Best Picture. I said it here first.

Mahalo.

Raindrops on Roses

Whiskers on kittens…

I’m not Oprah. I won’t do a list of Favorite Things. And you won’t get anything for free.  But here’s some things that make me happy.

And since I complain all the time, I like balance. So I am giving you the yang to last week’s yin.

Sprout watches

"put a bird on it"

They’re made from corn resin, are mercury free, have recycled parts and smart packaging. AND they are very affordable. Super cute. I want one in every color. I have white and off-white. Their leather straps are made from fish skin. FISH SKIN! It’s already harvested and put to use. (Available at Nordstrom, Macys, and Sproutwatches.com)

Whitney

As in Cummings the comedienne not, Houston, Bobby Brown’s ex. She’s hilarious, cute, raunchy and still kind of sweet. I love the show and the characters’ dynamics. Her boyfriend is kind of lovable in a scruffy way. (NBC, Wednesday nights)

Alex and Whitney from "Whitney"

Neville Longbottom

HELLO? I’ve been saying all year that he’s the most under-rated Harry Potter character. The only reason Gryffindor won the house cup in the first book/movie is because of him, and they over came Lord Voldemort in the last one because of him too. Way to go Neville. And Matthew Lewis is super dashing with his straight teeth.

From awkward fella, to handsome young man.

Twice baked chocolate croissants

Bakery Nouveau has the corner-market on this. Enough can’t be said. Come to these parts and find out.

Thousand Island dressing

I still enjoy it even though it’s a little gross. A seafood louis salad with tomatoes and Thousand Island is a summer staple.

Eco tools make up brushes

These little babies are super affordable, planet friendly (I like ‘green’ things) and are some of my favorite make up tools. The bristles are soft, hold up to washing and apply makeup beautifully. They are very affordable and found at Target. Love them.

You can pretty much buy these anywhere.

Bridesmaids – the movie

Do I need to say more? BEST CHICK MOVIE EVER. I’m a huge Kristen Wiig fan, and now I’m a huge Melissa McCarthy fan. Gotta love smart, talented funny women.

Hilarious.

UPS

Duh? That little brown truck brings me all my goodies. Love it!
