The Golden Globes: No Longer Just Respectable, They Now Have Taste | Variety


A lot of people still like to talk about the Golden Globes as if they were the less-serious, more-fun, loose-cannon, everyone-in-the-room-is-relaxed-because-they’ve-had-a-few-drinks alternative to the Academy Awards. Okay, that is what they are, and on some level always will be. At this point, however, consigning the Globes to that description may also be a neat way of staying in denial over just how much, in the last 10 years, the once tatty…

    Great article, Sarah. Thanks very much for sharing it, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen it. Rock on Meryl!
    Keep getting well, my friend. Mega hugs.

  2. First Night Design

    My pleasure, Teagan!

    I suppose actors relate to politicians because they are so much alike. They all stand up in front of a large group of people and spout words written by someone else while trying to pretend they are someone they’re not.

    Despite Affleck’s (who I like as an actor) ‘Man-Bun’ (something I detest), I have just realised that it is high time I followed this blog.
    So here I am!
    Best wishes, Pete. xx (One extra for V&B)

  5. beetleypete

    You got that right, GP. Sometimes, they blur the boundaries, as in Reagan and Schwarzenegger. Then, God help us!
    Regards, Pete.

  6. beetleypete

    Sorry, that should be ‘one extra for R & B’. (Typo)
    But that extra will be constant, dear Sarah. xx

  7. GP Cox

    Ya gotta laugh, Pete. We elected an actor as President whose movie co-star was a chimpanzee name Bozo – and we loved him!

  8. beetleypete

    You might have loved him, GP. We may not have felt quite the same across the Atlantic…!
    Regards, Pete.

  9. GP Cox

    Sorry about that.

  10. beetleypete

    Not your fault at all, GP. It was that Reagan/Thatcher combination. Just awful, for some of us.

  11. GP Cox

    Ah-ha, I think it’s all coming back to me now.

  12. First Night Design

    I must confess that I found it slightly odd that you weren’t following! Lovely to have you on board.

  13. First Night Design

    Or do you mean R&V? If not, I’m missing something!

  14. beetleypete

    A second typo in the same thread! My fingers must be putting on weight. Or I was thinking of Rhythm and Blues…xx

  15. First Night Design

    And to add to the confusion, I’ve just realised that I read ‘man-bun’ as ‘man-bum’ yesterday and thought it was another expression for ‘builder’s bum”. Today I understand!

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
