So, did you all get a chance to check out the Golden Globes last night? This is the first year that I watched in a while and I was pleasantly suprised. The last time I watched the show was so boring, unfunny, and slow that it couldn’t hold my attention. This year however, the host (Ricky Gervais) was hilarious and the presenters were even funnier! The highlights for me were when Robert Downey Jr. presented best actress and made a very inuendo filled presentation to all the nominees ending with a truly inappropiate, but funny, pass at Emma Stone. The next high point was when Gervais introduced Tina Fey and the “ungrateful” Steve Carrell, thanking Carrell for killing a cash cow for him by leaving The Office. Overall, the winners were not a shock, though it was nice to see Katy Sagal and Jim Parsons win as each was well deserved. Below is a list of winners, but let us know if you felt this was on of the funniest years.
