Golden Globe Awards 2015

The 72d Golden Globe Awards ceremony took place on Jan. 11, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Globe correspondent Maura Johnston and Globe critic Sarah Rodman commented on the night's big moments and wins. 
    Welcome to the Boston Globe's 2015 Golden Globes liveblog! My name's Maura Johnston, and I'm a writer for I'm starting slowly, watching E!'s pregame show, which has apparently turned into a RED CARPET CONTEST, judging by the chatter of Kelly Osbourne. America's Most Employed Man Ryan Seacrest is chatting about babies with Rosamund Pike. Also apparently bare midriffs are a trend!

    Ryan Seacrest has switched things up: He's wearing HIS OWN FASHION LINE instead of Burberry. Add that job to his list!

    It is kind of impressive how much content has grown to fill the Internet's infinite space. Did you ever foresee a manicure cam when you watched awards shows back in the single-screen viewing days?
    maura johnston 1/11/2015 11:07:52 PM
    There is a British Invasion happening on the red carpet... which provides a perfect bit of synergy for E! to re-air the commercial for its new show "The Royals," which looks super pulpy and soapy. Perhaps over the course of the night a line from the ad will emerge as this show's "His FATHER is the DISTRICT ATTORNEY"? We can hope!

    Bill Hader is talking to Giuliana Rancic and it marks the second time Richard Grieco has come up in my pop-culture stream this week. (Here's the first.)
    maura johnston 1/11/2015 11:16:22 PM
    Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts are now chatting with Seacrest. Blondes in yellow! A very good look!

    Lena Dunham is complaining about Twitter. 2015, everybody.
    maura johnston 1/11/2015 11:43:45 PM
    Also can someone tell Lena Dunham that Tweetbot is an excellent Twitter client with a host of very robust mute functions? Thanks.
    maura johnston 1/11/2015 11:44:40 PM
    Amy Poehler: POCKETS IN HER STELLA MCCARTNEY DRESS. This lady, she is my kind of lady.

    At some point during a red carpet show you become so attuned to the rhythms that you start noticing things like "nail trends." This is where I am headed right now, and let me tell you: There's lots of nude polish on the red carpet, on hands and on feet! Which is pretty smart because when it inevitably chips you're like, "Ha, YOU CAN'T EVEN TELL!" Well, I mean, you can, but the casual outside observer it's much less noticeable than, say, blue glitter polish that has chipped. (Cough.)
    maura johnston 1/11/2015 11:48:57 PM
    Jessica Chastain bucking the nude polish trend with a very dark nail shade. No fear!
    maura johnston 1/11/2015 11:51:00 PM
    Okay. Time to switch the channel to NBC for the real live action. Thanks Ryan, Giuliana, and all your cameras!

    Why does this McDonald's ad look like Snapchat's iconography.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 12:58:21 AM
    5... 4... 3... 2... !!!
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:00:13 AM
    Oh look, an awards show! Follow and tweet along with the #GoldenGlobes with myself @maura and the rest of the @BostonGlobe gang. Saddle up.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:00:57 AM
    Tina Fey opens the night calling the audience brats.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:01:16 AM
    Lots of mockery of "The Interview" to open the show.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:02:04 AM
    The show takes place in the ballroom where we hold the @OfficialTCA awards so I may've sat in the same seat once as Oprah! #GoldenGlobes
    (Burlington native) Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are off to the races goofing on the famous folks. #GoldenGlobes (It's their last time.)
    "'Boyhood' proves there are still great roles for women over 40 as long as they get those roles when they're under 40."

    "You are the only person in this room I would save in a fire." Poehler on the wonderful Frances McDormand of #OliveKittredge #GoldenGlobes
    Wes Anderson getting a nice ovation, maybe the loudest yet during the Poehler/Fey monologue slash roll call?

    And the Clooney-Amal joke, score. Essentially, she is amazing, so tonight... HE is receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award. #GoldenGlobes
    Now Amy and Tina, on "Who Would You Rather?" Too rich and racy. Who is better than these women? #GoldenGlobes
    Tyler Perry sequel to "Gone Girl," "Girl, I Thought You Were Gone!" #GoldenGlobes
    I can't figure out how to describe the reaction to the Fey-Poehler Bill Cosby joke. A staggered moan? A low roar?
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:10:49 AM
    Also probably worth noting that Tina Fey is no stranger to Cosby jokes:

    Aw. JK Simmons wins the Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in "Whiplash"! He's so gruff!
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:13:19 AM
    Simmons shouts out Miles Teller, in whose forthcoming movie about the RI boxer Vinny Paz I had the pleasure of serving as background:
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:14:32 AM
    Well, Dakota Johnson's blankness will make her a perfect fit for the role of the "50 Shades Of Grey" lady.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:15:32 AM
    A "Downton Abbey" acting win and a commercial break! What are you wearing? Now's your big chance to share!
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:18:25 AM
    "Here are the nominees for, uh, you know..."
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:22:22 AM
    "Fargo" wins Best TV Miniseries, a ridiculously stacked category. Judging by the paths the winners are taking to the stage it doesn't look expected.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:23:44 AM
    Best Mini/TV Movie: Fargo, FX. Good win in a tough category. Really enjoyed this show, Freeman, Thornton, Tolman so good. #GoldenGlobes
    Best Actor in a Mini/TV Movie: Billy Bob Thornton, "Fargo." #GoldenGlobes
    Best Mini/TV Movie Actor winner Billy Bob Thornton talks about saying controversial things, continuing tonight's retro theme.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:27:28 AM
    Fun fact: Billy Bob Thornton's group the Boxmasters signed a deal w/a Nashville label & will release a double album.…
    Can we talk about how the Cumberland Farms/Dunkin coffee rivalry is getting really real? So many attack ads!
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:31:34 AM
    Who was that hopping man trying to insert himself into the Michael Keaton-shot Meryl Streep/"Movies Wow" contributor shot?

    Ah, it was Cumberbatch! Thanks everybody. I blinked at the wrong moment.
    maura johnston 1/12/2015 1:36:28 AM
    Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson wins Best Original Score for "The Theory Of Everything." (I'm a "Birdman" partisan myself. More drums!)
