Cecil B. De Mille Award for Lifetime Achievement – Woody Allen
Ok we’re off to the races people. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are on stage and being funny. Hooray!
This is amusing but am I the only one that misses Rickey Gervais taking the piss out of everyone and everything?
“Cecil B DeMille award goes toWoody Allen tonight just a few years after Martin Scorcese. I assume it’s the award for littlest man with the biggest glasses”
“For his role in Dallas Buyers Club Matthew McConaughey lost 45 pounds, or what actresses call ‘being in a movie'”. Sad but true.
Oooh first award time. Hooray!
Best Supporting Actress in a movie. hooray!
Seriously don’t know who to root for.
Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle. That’s… actually not surprising, she was amazing.
Jennifer Lawrence is kind of awesome not only because she’s a great actor but because she seems legit surprised when she wins.
Wait, Hayden Panniteiere is up for an award?
Jacqueline Bisset wins for Dancing on the Edge. I don’t know what that is but apparently I should check it out.
Wow, they’re playing Jacqueline Bisset off. I mean, she’s been up there a while, but damn.
so we just raced through those first two awards and now there’s a shit load of commercials.
Naomi Watts and Mark Ruffalo on stage. Maybe Mark Ruffalo will turn into the hulk?
“Mini series have given us countless hours of entertainment.” Unless you count the hours.
I haven’t seen all these but here’s pulling for Behind the Candelabra.
Woo! Behind the Candelabra wins!! I like it when things I like win. Let’s keep that up Hollywood Foreign Press!
And we’re jumping right to best actress mini series/movie.
I have not seen any of these performances.
But Elizabeth Moss wins for Top of the Lake
Oh hey it’s the girl from Mad Men. I knew I recognized her from somewhere.
And they are playing her off as well. Man they’re really going to try to finish this in 3 hours this year.
Introducing one of the best picture nominees, Captain Phillips. A fantastic film. I wonder if it has a chance in the face of 12 Years a Slave and Gravity. I don’t think Philomena really has a shot. I kind of hope Rush does.
I am kind of loving how there are a lot of great films to choose from this year. Those years where it seems like a forgone conclusion are annoying.
The President of the Hollywood Foreign Press.
Heh, at least he has a sense of humour. Or something close to it anyway.
And kept it short and sweet.
Jonah Hill and Margot robbie from Wolf of Wall Street. This “wrong teleprompter thing is amusing.
Wolf of Wall Street needs to win best picture in it’s category.
Aaron Eckhart and Paula Patton presenting best actor on tv. Bryan Cranston right?
Oh wait, Kevin Spacey
Kevin Spacey, right guys?
It’d be amazing if it were James Spader though.
Bryan Cranston. Fifth win, 4th consecutive nomination, ok so that makes sense that he won.
He seems like such a nice guy, too.
Best TV Series – Drama. Difficult choice here. House of Cards?
Breaking Bad. Unsurprising. Not in a bad way, I was just really hoping for House of Cards.
Vince Gilligan: “Aaron Paul, you want to tell them how we feel?”
Aaron Paul: “YEAH BITCH!”
The look on his face was kinda priceless.
I don’t have cable so something I jsut noticed: American Hustle is being marketed as a comedy? Is that just since it got nominated on the “musical or comedy” side of the Globes?
Ok, commercials so let’s do a quick recap. Jennifer Lawrence is a solid win. Behind the Candelabra also great. Bryan Cranston/Breaking Bad are great and well deserving wins however I was pulling for House of Cards. Haven’t seen the other things that won so far because again, I don’t have cable.
Philomena is up for best picture. And the real Philomena is on stage. That’s actually pretty cool.
Best Score in an original motion picture. I am not sure if I can who wins here.
Alex Ebert for All is Lost. Amazing. The music is fantastic.
Alex Ebert: “Thanks for letting me try, all over your movie.”
They’re really serious about the time limit on speeches.
Best Original Song is going to be Let it Go, right? It kind of has to be.
Taylor Swift is nominated?
Bono/Edge/U2 win for Mandela. I don’t know how I feel about that.
Then again I kind of stopped loving U2 a long time ago.
But seriously I expected Disney to sweep the stuff they were nominated for.
Best Supporting Actor in a drama series. Corey Stoll, right?
John Voight? Really?
In a year with Corey Stoll AND Aaron Paul?
And they play off Jon Voight too.
Olivia Wilde is on stage to introduce Her. Awwww.
Side note: Scarlett Johansson not being eligible for acting nominations as Samantha in Her is fucking stupid.
I love Robert Downey. He gets to be an asshole and everyone loves him for it.
Best Actress in a Comedy movie. Amy Adams in American Hustle. So they are going to sweep, right?
I’m actually fine with them taking the acting awards as long as they don’t take best picture itself.
Remember the year that Titanic won best picture and director but As Good As It Gets won all the acting awards? I’m fine with that happening with Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle
Ok it’s been like 20 minutes and the one I’m still fuming about is U2 winning for best song. The most I think about it the more I remember that every U2 song sounds THE FUCKING SAME.
What the fuck is going on right now.
Amy Poehler as Tina Fey’s son is… weird.
Best Actor in a Drama Series now. I doubt I’ve seen much of this but how cool would it be for the girl whose name I can’t spell to win for Orphan Black?
But Robin Wright wins and that’s just fine.
AS YOU WISH
She’s amazing in House of Cards
And Simon is here, apparently.
Hello! Temporarily, I think. Miss anything?
HAHA. Oh, Shia. What a grade-A arsehole.
You missed a few good wins and some utter bullshit. Business as usual.
Jim Carrey makes fun of Shia The Beef. Amazing.
Let me just reiterate: if American Hustle wins best picture over The Wolf of Wall Street? That’ll be the imitator winning over the original.
Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture.
Will American Hustle win or will they give it to one of the other, better choices?
JARED LETO HOLY SHIT.
Michael Fassbender not winning anything is automatically the incorrect descision.
So then. How does this line up the Oscars? Michael Fassbender is who I would have guessed. Then again he’s not playing a transgendered hooker with a heart of gold who happens to be dying of aids soooooooo……
That’s certainly ticking most of the Oscar boxes.
U2 won best song? Who were the competition, Crazy Frog?
It’ll be interesting to see how the 10 best actor nominees at the globes get paired down to 5 for the Oscars.
Yeah, U2 won best song. For the same song they always write.
Emma Thompson is holding a Martini and has her shoes off. This is the reason why I love the Globes.
Best Screenplay, eh?
Emma Thompson is either drunk as fuck or the best actress ever. Or both.
Yay! Haven’t seen Her but I’m pretty sure it’s the most deserving winner.
Wooooooo SPIKE JONZE. I finally watched Her today. This was the right choice.
So the Globes have one screenplay award and the Oscars ahve two. So Her can win that and 12 Years a Slave or Wolf of Wall Street can win best adapted. It’s a good thing.
It’s amazing how much I think of the Globes just as Oscar precursors.
I still need to see Nebraska.
You saw Her? Grr. Jealous.
“you can do stuff to us, we can do stuff to you, or we can do stuff to each other and you can watch.”
you never get people saying that kind of stuff at the Oscars.
WTF Andy Samberg won a golden globe just now. Or is that the LSD kicking in?
Wait, did Andy Samburg just win a Golden Globe???
Andy Samberg. Won out over Jason Bateman. Who was the clear choice.
I haven’t seen any of the foreign films. This is a problem.
But there s a Myazaki film nominated sooooo OH WAIT IT DIDN’T WIN.
We’re just going to pretend that Miyazaki won.
Melissa McCarthy is kind of hilarious, even when doing annoying bland comedy like this “she thinks she’s Matt Damon” bit.
So then, Michael Douglas or Matt Damon for Behind the Candelabra?
Michael Douglas. You know why? Because that film should be up for Oscars, and if it was up for Oscars he’d be the odds on favourite.
Wait why isn’t Steven Soderbergh up for something?
“The only reason [Matt Damon] isn’t up here is that I had more sequins.” — Michael Douglas.
The best animated film is Frozen. Disney is the Disney of animated movies again. Hooray!
I hate to admit that Ive yet to see Inside Llewyn Davis
Best Actress in the Comedy Series. Lena Dunham. Let it be Lena Dunham.
Or Amy Poehler. Is this the last time she’s gonna be eligible? Worth it to see her making out with Bono.
Oh look an ad for Robocop. One day I’d like to see a remake of a Verhoven movie that, you know, gets the fucking point.
Oh look! Emma Stone! Presenting the de Mille award. To Woody Allen. Amazing.
Maybe I should watch all 49 Woody Allen movies, one a night for 49 days. That’d be an undertaking.
49 as a writer/director, 74 written. Damn.
I do love how Diane Keaton rocks the suits.
I can’t tell if she’s talking nonsense or genius or both.
And now I want to watch every Woody Allen movie. That montage really showed how much he loves women. Genius? Yep.
You can tell they are getting close to the best picture awards because there’s been about 14 minutes of commercials in the last 20 minutes.
Oh, God. Gravity is an outstanding movie. Please win.
Gravity for Best Picture. I don’t think it’ll win, but it’d be terrible if it weren’t at least nominated.
Best Director. So many great choices. But please let it be Scorcese or McQueen.
Alfonso Cuarian. COme on.
HOLY FUCK ALFONSO CUARON ACTUALLY WON.
Scorcese will win at the Oscars, I think.
mIND STILL BLOWN THAT CUARON WON
So please let Girls win best comedy series
as long as fucking Big Bang Theory loses.
Wait, so is Brooklyn 99 actually good? Am I missing out?
“This is way better than saving a human life.” Ha!
Promo for I, Frankenstein. That’s clearly going to be so bad it’s good, right? Right guys?
It looks like it’s this year’s Underworld/Hansel and Gretel prerequisite. Which could be no bad thing if it’s done right.
Every time I sit down and watch cable TV I remember why I cancelled my cable.
Commercial sidenote: at one point today my three-year-old boy was naked, shaking his manhood in the face of our dog, singing “YOU GOT THE TOUCH! YOU GOT THE POWER!” from Transformers.
I’m such a proud daddy.
Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical. Leonardo Di-Fucking-Caprio, right?
it’s about fucking time.
YESYESYES! So glad Leo won. Totally deserved.
I love that Leo finally won, I also love that he’s being so totally classy about it.
How does Reece eat a yoghurt?
With her spoon?
12 Years a Slave should win the best drama picture category. The rest of the movies are great, however few are so important.
This is outdoing the Superbowl for commercial to event ratio. Yawn.
SSo. Many. Fucking. Commercials.
Thor should totally be played as a stereotypical Australian. Much more entertaining.
“G;day mate, Oim the god a thunda!”
Best picture, Musical or Comedy. The Wolf of Wall Street. Or Her.
Or throw us all a curve and give it to Nebraska.
WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK
So. They gave the award to the pretender instead of the master. American Hustle.
I actually really like American Hustle. However it’s just not as good a film.
So basically this is proof that the awards go to the feel good film over the culturally relevant one.
I haven’t seen it, but would be amazingly surprised if it’s better than Wolf Of Wall Street.
There have been more commercials in the last 40 minutes than there were int he first 120 minutes of the show.
How many commercials is too many commercials? THIS MANY COMMERCIALS. Just a total disconnect, there’s no way to enjoy the event itself. Stupid.
I really want to see American Hustle now so I can be legitimately angry about Wolf Of Wall Street not winning.
Come on, Sandy.
“And now like a supermodel’s vagina let’s all bid a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.” Almost worth the commercials to hear that line from Tina Fey.
Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine. Another film I missed this year. Woody Allen too, making it doubly annoying I haven’t seen it.
Does Woody Allen ever *not* make movies? Not that I’m complaining, obviously. He must be the most prolific director by a long shot.
I’m not sure that I knew what Cate Blanchett’s real accent was. Interesting.
And Cue the music. Jebus guys just cut some of the commercials and let the people speak.
Best actor. Idris Elba for playing Mandela, or Chiwetel Ejiofor for Northup?
Or Matthew McConaughey. Holy shit. Did not expect that.
Chiwetel Ejiofor looks.. maybe not angry but not happy anyway.
Jebus H Christmas. 5 minutes of commercials between each of the last awards it seems.
Call it Matt.
It’s 4 minutes to 8. That means they have 4 minutes to introduce a presenter, announce the nominees, give the award, have a speech, and show 20 more minutes of commercials.
Winner, that is.
12 year a slave
Oh Look, it was 12 Years a Slave. The only choice.
I think you probably did!
Seriously. It’s the only choice. I didn’t put it my personal top 10 but I honestly can’t remember why.
I’ve worked with Chitwel, you know. Not that I’m taking any credit for his win, you understand. But there’s no such thing as coincidence.
Of course Simon, of Course.
Any parting thoughts?
I really hated the saturation of the last hour. Hope the Oscars doesn’t pull the same shit.
Also, I really need to catch up on many of last year’s movies.
Interesting though that 12 Years a Slave is the best picture of the year without having the best actors or directors or writers.
Happy with the winners?
I guess that’s all I have for now. We’ll likely be discussing this on the next podcast so keep an eye out. Thanks for reading along with us!
