Golden Globes 2012: The Liveblog
10:14: We take that back! Martin Scorsese wins instead and we can't stop smiling. Just wish the amount of people giving him a standing ovation didn't outnumber the amount that actually saw the film.
10:15: That's Marty for you... never misses an opportunity to mention film preservation (or the fact that his daughter encouraged him to make Hugo).
10:16: That's the first big hit The Artist has taken this awards season. A harebinger of things to come?
10:17: Whatever Ricky just said got bleeped big time. We're guessing it related to Salma Hayek and her enormous... uh, talents.
10:18: The HFPA: the only organization that still remember Glee exists and nominates it for Best Television Series -- Comedy Or Musical.
10:18: Modern Family denies New Girl the token "New TV Show On the Block" victory.
10:19: Following up on the glower-off between Poitier and Freeman earlier, we know of a cleavage-off between Vergara and Hayek. The winner? All of us.
10:20: And with that, the Globes run out of TV awards. It's movies from here on out, folks. All you television people can get an earlier start on getting your cars from the valets.
10:25: Mark Wahlberg complements Jessica Biel on her pronunciation of "Jean Dujardin" while reading the nominee list for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture -- Comedy Or Musical. Condescension or is he genuinely impressed?
10:26: The Artist recovers with a victory for its title character. And he wins the crowd over with his little pantomime routine at the end of his speech. Next stop: an Oscar victory!
10:29: Wow, only four awards left by our count. Hollywood's Biggest Party is calling it early tonight.
10:33: Ricky isn't even trying anymore at this point. He's obviously realized the best way not to be invited back is by being as boring as possible.
10:34: To no one's surprise, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture -- Drama goes to Meryl Streep.
10:38: We're more interested in seeing whether someone gets her glasses to the stage than in listening to Streep talk. David Fincher had them last. Security had better frisk him before he leaves.
