Golden Globes

So, the Golden Globs (typo but I'm leaving it) were last night, and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were the first ever all-female hosting duo. Maybe it was just me, but it felt like when Ricky Gervais hosted, he was all over the place, whereas Poehler and Fey seemed to disappear a bit after the opening. Anyway.

The highpoint of the evening for me was Anne Hathaway's acceptance speech, particularly this bit, where she addressed fellow nominee Sally Field: "Sally, I have to thank you so much for being a vanguard against typecasting, because as the girl who started out as the princess of Genovia, I can't tell you how encouraging it was to know that the Flying Nun grew up to be Norma Rae." Amazing.

There is lots more to discuss—Girls! Jodie Foster's odd speech! Lucy Liu's amazing dress! Hugh Jackman!—so I will turn it over to you. Have at it in comments!
