We’ll be watching the show and updating this blog in real time, so be sure to refresh the page every minute or two for a play-by-play of the night and some insightful (or at least entertaining) commentary. Check out our GOLDEN GLOBES LIVE BLOG below!
10:58 p.m. The show ends two minutes early – how about that for a change of pace? How’d you all fare with your ballots? Cheers!
10:55 p.m. “The Social Network” wins Best Motion Picture, Drama. The movie is a uniquely-American tale, and it deserves every award and accolade it gets. A cinematic opus to our generation. Fabulosity on film, folks.
10:54 p.m. Michael Douglas, fresh from a bout of beating cancer, presents the final award of the evening – Best Motion Picture, Drama. Says, “There’s got to be an easier way to get a standing ovation.” Tear.
10:49 p.m. Thanks to Colin Firth, I’m going to find a way to incorporate “triangle of man love” into my everyday vocabulary.
10:47 p.m. Colin Firth wins for “The King’s Speech.” Not at all surprising – he’s brilliant and he’s been around longer than the rest of the nominees. I found the movie overrated but can’t argue that Firth was excellent.
10:46 p.m. Ricky Gervais comes out of hiding to insult Sandra Bullock, presenting Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama…with bangs!
10:39 p.m. The Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical winner is…”The Kids Are All Right.” The only even remotely worthy choice in a wholly dismal category, if you ask me.
10:36 p.m. Natalie gives her fiancee a “best actor” credit for saying he didn’t want to sleep with her while acting in “Black Swan.” Calls Mila “sweet lips” Kunis. Thanks Aronofsky for his “now do this one for yourself” inspiration. Yes, NP…he IS “the most wonderful.” (But I’m biased…he’s my favorite director.)
10:34 p.m. Natalie Portman wins for “Black Swan” – she was a lock. Best movie of the year, in my opinion. Her performance was gold. And have I mentioned that she looks phenomenal in that dress? Well-spoken and genuine ’til the bitter end. Nicely done, Nat.
10:33 p.m. Jeff Bridges in the house!!! The dude abides over Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama.
10:32 p.m. Joseph Gordon-Levitt: the man who had the most fun during “Inception” introduces the movie, and looks pretty suave while doing it.
10:27 p.m. Apparently a sugar high makes you the most bleeped out person of the night…so far. Giamatti, FTW!
10:26 p.m. Giamatti says he’s hopped up on Godiva chocolates. New spokesman alert!
10:25 p.m. Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical goes to Paul Giamatti for “Barney’s Version.” Johnny Depp totally cancelled himself out.
10:23 p.m. A post-preggo Alicia Keys introduces “Black Swan,” which stars a now-preggo Natalie Portman. I’m having a full-circle moment.
10:19 p.m. “Glee” takes it for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy. Don’t hate…I see the show’s appeal, but I can’t get behind it. I’ll give it to all you ecstatic fans, though. Enjoy.
10:18 p.m. Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy? Who cares, I’m just looking at January Jones in that dress. You. Go. Girl.
10:16 p.m. “Thank you to the real people upon which this movie is based.” – Fincher. Hear that, Zuckerberg?
10:15 p.m. Here’s a big one, folks – the Best Director of a Motion Picture goes to…David Fincher for “The Social Network.” He had it in the bag – man’s a genius. This is the movie to watch during awards season, folks.
10:13 p.m. Megan Fox, looking fly while introducing “The Tourist.” Probably the most interesting thing about that movie.
10:08 p.m. “These movies are all like my children. Except…my children are more expensive and you can’t make them in 3D to push up the grosses.” Well played, De Niro. Well played.
10:06 p.m. Perhaps I spoke too soon. Some very uncomfortable (albeit timely) jokes about deportation. Involving Javier Bardem, no less.
10:05 p.m. “We all have our jobs to do,” he says of “Little Fockers,” after joking that he saw the reviews. It’s all up from here, buddy.
10:04 p.m. BOBBY D, REPRESENT! “…and I loved you in ’The Fighter,'” notes De Niro to Damon. Touché, Sir.
10:01 p.m. Anyone else getting goosebumps during this De Niro retrospective? “Raging Bull” is one of my all-time favorites. The man has had QUITE the career, no doubt.
9:59 p.m. Damon doing De Niro impersonations. “What am I, funny? …do I amuse you?” Priceless.
9:58 p.m. Aww yeah, Matt Damon. Presenting the Cecil B. DeMille award to Robert De Niro. Did you catch Damon in “True Grit,” perchance? Fantastic turn.
9:53 p.m. Have I mentioned that Christian Bale looks like he’s auditioning for a hipster Pantene commercial? That beard! Those luscious long locks! Cutaway shots can be very entertaining.
9:52 p.m. Those “few hours in the Maritime hotel,” huh Leo? Do tell…
9:51 p.m. Big surprise! Melissa Leo takes it for “The Fighter.” I have to admit, I thought Amy Adams eclipsed her in the flick. Though if we consider this a “body of work” award, Leo deserves it for sure.
9:50 p.m. Alright. Here we go. On to the big stuff. Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.
9:49 p.m. Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical goes to…Jim Parsons for “The Big Bang Theory.”
9:46 p.m. Jane Fonda says she’s here to support her friend Cher by introducing “Burlesque.” Someone has to…
9:41 p.m. Best Actress in a Television Musical or Comedy goes to Laura Linney for “The Big C.” Wonder why she couldn’t be at the show to accept?
9:38 p.m. Oh Helen Mirren. You are timeless. She’s up to present “The King’s Speech,” calling it “Inseminated in Australia and gestated in Britain.” Hmm…kinda pervy, HM.
9:37 p.m. “In a Better World” wins a Globe for Best Foreign Language Picture. I was torn between “Biutiful” and “I Am Love,” frankly.
9:36 p.m. “Young and thin…with the hair…and the teeth…” is how Gervais introduced Olivia Wilde and Robert Pattinson. That’s about right.
9:35 p.m. For those asking, word is that Christian Bale was censored at the end of his acceptance speech for calling Robert De Niro “the s-it.” Network television may disagree with him, but I don’t!
9:30 p.m. Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television goes to Jane Lynch for “Glee.” No need to be – as you say – “falsely humble,” Jane – you earned it!
9:28 p.m. Sorkin calls “Social Network” director David Fincher a “national treasure.” Says to his young daughter, “Elite is not a bad word, it’s an aspirational one.”
9:26 p.m. No surprise here – Aaron Sorkin wins for “The Social Network.” Year’s best script, hands down.
9:25 p.m. Steve Carell and Tina Fey joke through the introduction of Best Screenplay. Fey claims they would’ve written all of them if they had time. No doubt.
9:23 p.m. Oh, Zac Efron. Sportin’ a crew cut. Talkin’ about “The Kids Are All Right. ” I believe. I BELIEVE!
9:18 p.m. Not to take anything away from Claire, but all I can think of when I look at her is Latisse. Actors gotta pay their bills, ya’ll.
9:15 p.m. Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television goes to…Claire Danes for her turn in “Temple Grandin.” Her second win after “My So-Called Life” – ahh…those were the days.
9:14 p.m. What do you think of Pacino’s turn as Jack Kevorkian? I found it enlightening, refreshing, surprisingly poignant.
9:12 p.m. Al Pacino brings it home for “You Don’t Know Jack” – his fourth win and fifteenth nomination. And the audience gives him a standing ovation! Go, Al! Go, Al!
9:11 p.m. Geoffrey Rush and Tilda Swinton (looking…starched) are up to introduce Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
9:10 p.m. Sly Stallone on stage! Introducing nominee “The Fighter.” Apropos, Rocky.
9:03 p.m. Annette Bening wins Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for her turn in “The Kids Are All Right.” This one’s been a long time comin’ for her.
9:01 p.m. Is Robert announcing Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical or is he propositioning the five actresses? Man, he’s charming.
9:00 p.m. And Downey Jr. continues Gervais’ vibe by saying he can’t tell when an actress has done her best work until he’s slept with her. Clutch comedic timing, this guy!
8:59 p.m. Gervais announces Robert Downey Jr.’s movie repertoire by asking, “Are these porn films?”
8:57 p.m. “Toy Story 3” wins it! I really loved “How to Train Your Dragon,” though…gotta admit. Catch it if you haven’t!
8:55 p.m. Bieber’s up to announce Best Animated Film…and all the little girls (and their moms) are a-swoonin’. What’s all the to-do about his new ’do, anyway? Maybe I’m out of touch but I don’t see a difference…
8:51 p.m. The Nine Inch Nails-worshipping teenager within is grateful to have a commercial break to recover from that last award. Big ups, Trent!
8:50 p.m. And Best Original Score in a Motion Picture goes…Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for “The Social Network.” YES. YESSSSSS.
8:48 p.m. “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” wins for “Burlesque.” Coincidentally, an audience member’s comment was bleeped out when it was announced. My thoughts exactly.
8:46 p.m. Alec Baldwin almost wore Jennifer Lopez’ dress, apparently. They’re presenting Best Original Song.
8:44 p.m. Gervais calls “The Social Network” his favorite film of the year…makes a Heather Mills joke, saying Facebook founder Zuckerberg is her “one that got away.”
8:43 p.m. Rawwr, Andrew Garfield introducing nominee “The Social Network.” Adored him in “Never Let Me Go,” too. He’s definitely one to watch!
8:38 p.m. The Best Television Series Drama winner is…”Boardwalk Empire.” Quite the surprise – I thought “The Walking Dead” had it in the bag! Love me some Darabont.
8:34 p.m. The Globe for Best Actor in a Television Drama goes to Steve Buscemi for “Boardwalk Empire.” Well-deserved…the man is positively menacing in that show.
8:30 p.m. Michelle Pfeiffer is lookin’ GORGE to introduce nominee “Alice in Wonderland.”
8:25 p.m. Ah – Chris Colfer wins for “Glee” – says he dropped his heart between Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore. So young, such excellent taste in women.
8:23 p.m. Leighton Meester balances on her sky-high heels to introduce Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. My money’s on Stonestreet for “Modern Family.”
8:21 p.m. Presenter Bruce Willis is introduced as “Ashton Kutcher’s dad” by Gervais. Klassy.
8:19 p.m. “Carlos” nabs Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
8:17 p.m. Julianne Moore and Kevin Spacey are on stage to present Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
8:11 p.m. Katey Sagal wins it for her role in “Sons of Anarchy.” Props, Peggy Bundy!
8:09 p.m. LL Cool J lookin’ swank presenting Best Actress in a Television Drama.
8:08 p.m. “You can only give a loud performance like the one I gave when you have a quiet anchor…” Bale says of his co-actor Mark Wahlberg. Truth.
8:07 p.m. And the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture goes to…Christian Bale for “The Fighter.” He was my top pick – the night’s off to a great start!
8:00 p.m Host Ricky Gervais is on stage…already with the Charlie Sheen jokes!
7:59 p.m. One minute until go-time, people!
