Best and worst of the 2014 Golden Globes
Amy Adams, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Bryan Cranston all had a good night
Best - Emma Thompson
Emma Thompson presenting Best Screenplay What makes the Golden Globes watchable isn't the often nutty choices made by the Hollywood Foreign Press, but the loose, sometimes loopy behavior you get from Hollywood's A-list when they gather together with a lot of free booze and a nice dinner. Loopy was exactly what we got from Emma Thompson when she presented the award for Best Screenplay to Spike Jones ("Her"). As she went tromping toward the stage with a drink and shoes in hand, she may have been putting on for the audience, but who cares? When she explained that the red soles of her Louboutins were "my blood," then tossed them aside to rip into the envelope, it felt like a carefree, improvised moment befitting the silliest awards show in town -- and a priceless comedic turn by an actress who has never seemed to give a damn about creating a false Hollywood image.
