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.

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.
Piper from Orange is the New Black was nominated –
but she didn’t win – probably because no one recognized her in red
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
Olivia Pope a/k/a Kerry Washington…
happy to be in Hollywood away from Fritz and Jake
Prince presented music GG to Selma
But, of course the winner is…
he said when he opened the envelope
Selma Hayek also presented – and quite nicely
Kate Hudson was a presenter, too
Her mom Goldie Hawn used to present, too
George Clooney and his new wife were in the audience
It was a Big ‘Ol Audience, too
George Clooney won the Super Nice Guy Award
Ruth Wilson won Best Actress for The Affair
(Slow and Pretty think she won it for Luther)
Meryl Streep didn’t win a Globe,
but she is ALWAYS a winner to Pretty and Slow
Get me outta here, Percy…Meryl is a good note to end on…
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.
I was watching them also . They were good
We always enjoy the Awards Shows – almost as well as the football games!! 🙂
My humans were so excited when Mrs. Anna Bates received her Golden Globe. They love Downton Abbey, but they’re not quite sure whether or not it’s a good thing that they’ve reached a point in their lives where they are the PBS demographic.
Oh Miss Harper Lee, please tell your humans that ALL ages love Downton Abbey so not to worry!! PBS…NPR…ESPN – they’re just initials so wtf?? 🙂
🙂 🙂 🙂 You crack me up!

That red chair has a lot of history and is well-traveled, Luanne! It may write a story one day…:)

Hi, did you see my predictions for the Golden Globes post? I enjoyed the after-party where you summed up the highlights of the show. I also liked how Tina and Amy pointed out how smart and what a humanitarian George’s new wife is! It made me also crack up when they would mention someone who was not prepared to be mentioned and then the camera would land on them.
I am a fan of all of the ones you mentioned, but also enjoyed Helen Mirren’s movie, along with the funny comment about Jennifer Lopez’s “Golden Globes.”
By the way, I like all the big stacks of books in your home and Jill is right, that red print chair is really artistic and cool!
Yes indeed, I had read your Golden Globes/Bucks post and thoroughly enjoyed it – I don’t always comment, but I did think it was a good one! I’m so sorry to miss the Helen Mirren movie – I am one of her biggest fans, too. I adore Helen and Meryl and Judi Dench in anything they do so I want them to win every time they’re nominated for anything. I liked how Tina and Amy joked with George and his wife. George is a lucky guy, I think.
As for the books in the house, credit Pretty. She once owned a feminist bookstore in the 90s and is an avid collector still. Our cup runneth over with books. 🙂
