Big Bang Love Scoop: 'Shamy' Is Heating Up!

Would you believe it if I told you that The Big Bang Theory bosses believe Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) have “the most stable relationship of anyone of the show”?!

‘Tis true! Turns out there’s lots of fun ahead for the gawky lovebirds (and their equally geektastic friends), and Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady gabbed about it all last night at the Golden Globes… READ MORE

It's the 2011 Golden Globes Live Blog!

The 2011 Golden Globes are upon us, which means it’s a big night for the always fashionable question, “Who are you wearing?”

That said, since this particular live blog is for unapologetic couch potatoes/pop-culture junkies/TV addicts, and since I’m typing this while wearing Old Navy sweats and an Allison Iraheta concert t-shirt, I think the more appropriate question is: “What are you eating?”

Me? I’ve got leftover sausage-and-mushroom pizza and a scary amount of Diet Coke to fuel my commentary. And now it’s your turn to head down to the comments to share your Golden Globes menu and talk about which nominees are your favorites. (I’m rooting for Julianna Margulies, The King’s Speech, Pillars of the Earth, and Sofia Vergara, to name a few.) Then, come back at 8 p.m., and we can dish the ceremony together! (Just keep hitting refresh to get my latest observations, and your fellow readers’ up-to-the-minute banter.) (And check out the full list of Golden Globes winners here!)

7:10 p.m. Poor Helena Bonham Carter, destined for the worst-dressed list. Her outfit reminds me of that line from AbFab where Eddy chastises Saffie for donating her clothes to charity: “Imagine my shock at seeing a homeless guy crawl out of a carboard box in my Vivienne Westwood catsuit!”

7:20 Okay, I’m not technically blogging the red carpet, but Christina Aguilera’s crazy bustline is really setting her up for a plethora of “Globes” punchlines in tomorrow morning’s fashion rundowns.
