The Shattered Lens Live Tweets The Golden Globes


It turns out that Patrick had the right idea.  Jeff, Leonard, Case, and I watched the Golden Globes tonight and it was seriously the most depressing awards show that I can remember.  The tables were largely empty and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s attempts at humor felt forced and awkward.  The constant bragging about the amount of money that the show was raising for charity felt like an attempt to deflect from all of the negative publicity that the HFPA has received over the past few weeks.  Nothing about the show felt right.

The winners accepted from home.  I enjoyed seeing Eugene Levy’s house.  It’s a very nice house.  But it still felt, to use that familiar term again, forced and awkward.  Even the surprise winners — and there were more than a few — could do little to alleviate the gloomy feel of the show.  At a time when we could use a little glamour, the Golden Globes were subdued and painful.  One can only imaging how painful the Oscars are going to be.

Here’s a few tweets from tonight:

Artwork of the Day: Gold (by Charles Wood)


by Charles Wood

Unless this is a reprint, this is from 1931.  Gold was written by Clarence Budington Kelland, who was a very popular writer of the time.  His most popular novel was Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, which has been filmed at least twice.  Gold was a novel about international finance.  It told the story of Anneke Van Horn, who knew how to make money but not how to land a man and have the family that she desired.  Remember, it was written in 1931.

The artwork was done by Charles Wood, who also did a lot of covers for western pulp magazines.  The red dress is exquisite and worth however much gold it cost.

Music Video Of The Day: Every 1’s A Winner by Hot Chocolate (1977, directed by ????)


I’ve been told that the Golden Globes are tonight so this seemed like a good song to go with.  Everyone’s a winner, though not really.

This was Hot Chocolate’s 2nd biggest hit, right after You Sexy Thing.  The music video, or “promotional video” as they were called back in the 70s, is a performance clip but what a performance!  How can you not be jealous of that super keyboard?

Good luck to all of the Golden Globe nominees and enjoy!
