Helen Mirren is inspiring.
I love Tina and Amy.
What Joanne Froggatt!? From Robin Hood to Downton Abby to a Golden Globe! She seemed genuinely surprised and very grateful. I cried during her speech.
This could be a weepy night.
J.Lo's dress and body? Are stunning. So is her face. And Jeremy Renner? My second favorite archer. :) He seems .... drunk, maybe?
Not a fan of neon yellow dresses. (Naomi Watts.)
Says she who shops at Costco for clothes twice a year.
What is Fargo? Is it something I should consider PVRing?
I saw Birdman. I was looking for a rom com that night, so I was a bit disappointed and probably didn't fully appreciate its apparent brilliance.
Oh Colin Firth. You'll always be Mr. Darcy to me.
Julia Dreyfuss. Wow, she looks good. Are we really the same age? I need to stop eating.
Gina Rodriguez sure was seated a long way away from the stage. Jane The Virgin. Her speech got me in the feels. Crying.
Am I PMSing?
I better get a box of Kleenex if this first half hour is any indication of how the rest of the night is going to go.
Transparent? I know NOTHING about TV shows. I'm never home to watch. BUT I HAVE A PVR. I'm going to start recording like a fiend.
I adore Melissa McCarthy. She has the friendliest face and the best smile.
And I totally enjoyed St. Vincent.
Bill Murray has 6 sons? (I just googled him, to see how old he is.)
I guess I should go see Selma. Seems important.
Katie Holmes did a fab job in her little bit.
Matt Bohmer? The Normal Heart? Sigh. I just am so out of the loop.
Amy Adams is having a fabulous career. That color looks good on her. (Pffft. Like I know the difference between a good and bad color.) She was right. She was unprepared. Heartfelt. But disjointed.
WHOA. That was quick. HBO just aired a commercial congratulating Matt Bohmer on his Golden Globe win.
Selma Hayek DOES look stunning. I like that white dress.
I haven't seen How to Train Your Dragon 1 or 2. I need a grandson I think.
Kate Hudson. Lady? THAT is quite the dress.
I TRIED seeing Boyhood a number of times this fall. Every time the 'date' fell through, though. Patricia Arquette could've used Danica's magic on her hair.
Kristen Wiig and the guy with the very white skin. They have totally opposing skin tones. Spray on tan FOR THE WIN. And her dress reminds me of a nightie I had in the 70's.
Jane Fonda is 77.
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
If I stop eating now and do 10,000 sit ups a day, I may have a fighting chance to look like her in 35 years.
"If there's one thing I've learnt about writing The Affair, is how sacred and valuable our marriages are..."
The air conditioning is on the fritz. Everyone is melting. Faces are shiny. Makeup is dripping. A real Hollywood tragedy.
Oh George Clooney:
"If you're in this room, you've caught the brass ring."
"It's a humbling thing to find someone to love..."
"Je Suis Charlie"
What is with Harrison Ford's nose? Does it look weird to you too?
Haha. Ethan Hawke's shirt. He had too much dinner... his tummy was peeking through. Gloriously.
Chris Patt tho.
He and his wife are too cute.
Love hearing all the British accents this evening.
Michael Keaton: Whoa. What amazing things to say about your son. Heartwarming, Tears. Again.
And then I stopped blogging.
Seeing I'm amazing at multi-tasking, I found some things on the internet you might find interesting:
This article by a young man writing to other young men:
(Want to know what they are?
1. Not providing the basics for the family.
3. Withholding physical affection.
4. Putting other things first.
5. Not speaking her language.)
Oh come on. Just click the link and read the article.
I was talking with a friend recently (in response to that blog post I wrote awhile ago about beauty/feeling ugly) and she said she'd always wanted to be considered magnificent. She wished for Hollywood-type fame. She, an extrovert x 1,000 wanted to get an Oscar or some such award.
I on the other hand, wanted to be beautiful to just one person. (And not stand out in a crowd re: appearance either positive or negatively.) And my dream, since childhood was to be happily married.
We were noticing that neither of us got what we'd hoped for. Although I said to her, "you still have a shot at getting your award. At this point, it's a matter of hard work and prioritizing your time and energy. I on the other hand, am going to have to let go of the dream, because statistically the chances that I'll get married again are very low. Less than 10%. It just doesn't happen for women in my demographic. Besides, I can't make someone fall in love with me by working hard or prioritizing my time.
AND THEN I saw this link on Facebook! Apparently it IS easy to get someone to fall in love with you. Just find someone who wants to play this 90 minute game... then play it with integrity and honesty and BOOM. True love blossoms.
Grab a partner and together answer each of these 36 questions and complete the final 4 minute exercise.Hahaha. You can play 'the game' from your laptop or download it onto your phone as an app. I can imagine someone playing it, say, in Disneyland. In the lineup. Like this:
And then? By the time you get on your ride, you're in love.
Hahaha.What the heck.
Good questions tho. Would be a great date night conversation starter if having conversations on dates is not your strong suit.
Have you been keeping up with Brenda's journal?
Her most recent post is so good:
