Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again when TV, movies, and alcohol come together to create a sweet symphony of tearful acceptance speeches, sumptuous couture, and hearty kudos for many of our favorite actors, writers, and directors. Yes, indeed, it’s time for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, and we’re live-blogging ’em!
What’s that, you say? I forgot to mention the statuettes that’ll land in the wrong hands, not to mention those winners who’ll punish us with lengthy lists of lawyers/agents/parents/accountants/fellow nominees/costars/everyone they’ve ever met that they couldn’t have done it without? Not to worry, we’ll be casting a side-eye at all those moments, too. But let’s all get a little further into our Sauvignon Blanc bottles before we begin that patented brand of kvetching.
In the midst of keeping one eye on the telecast (hosted for the second straight year by Ricky Gervais, pictured) and one on my computer (no one wants me to misspell M-a-d-e-l-e-i-n-e Stowe, after all), I’ll try to pull some of your best comments into our live stream. Just don’t take offense if your witty asides and bon mots don’t make the cut; I’m not part of the Secret Circle, just a regular guy with speed-reading limitations. And with those housekeeping notes out of the way, let’s all dive into the CoverItLive module below, and at 8/7c, we’ll let the live-blogging commence!
