Well Amigos  the Glamour Awards Season began at Casa de Canterbury with the 72nd. Annual Golden Globes Awards on Sunday night…and yes, yes I’m sure the season really began last week with The People’s Choice Awards but the old woman Slow and Pretty care more about what the Hollywood Foreign Press Association think than what The People do.  Sad, but true.

The bleacher seats at our casa show our typical support for Slow and Pretty’s enthusiasm for the movies.

Squirrel Chaser Spike on pins and needles

So we’re off and running on the Big Night with the Red Carpet interviews before the actual show.  We didn’t miss a thing…or two…

Jennifer Lopez was a presenter

JLow wasn’t even nominated for anything, but she made a swell presenter.

026

Piper from Orange is the New Black was nominated –

but she didn’t win – probably because no one recognized her in red

003

The Good Wife Julianna Margulies on the Red Carpet

(hm…she must have known she wasn’t going to win)

The British are coming, The British are coming

Mrs. Anna Bates on Downton Abbey won a GG

Editor’s Note: The Red Man continued his tradition of Golden Globes coverage again in 2015 but he did so with a heart full of sorrow for his followers across the Pond in France who lost many of their countrymen and women last week.  This post is dedicated to the memories of those who died in senseless acts of contrived terror.  We stand with the millions who marched in Paris yesterday – we will not be terrified.
