Golden Globes 2013 Who Won and Best Moments

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards show was everything we hoped it would be – entertaining, funny, shocking and punctual! The show ran smoothly with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were golden as co-hosts. You just know they will be co-hosting again next year.

Some of their best lines:

“It’s the only night when the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television.”

“I haven’t really been following the controversy over Zero Dark Thirty but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

“You know what Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.”

“That was Hilary Clinton’s husband.” – after Bill Clinton’s appearance.

“Please welcome middle-aged George Clooney.”

“Anne Hathaway, you gave a stunning performance in Les Mis.I have not seen someone so alone and abandoned like that. Since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.”
Here is a video of their opening monologue (or dialogue in this case):

 

Fellow Saturday Night Live alumni Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell also presented — together as well and they too were brilliantly funny.

Another highlight of the evening was Jodie Foster’s speech where she surprisingly talked about her personal life (she has always been so private) and “came out” publicly by thanking her partner of 14 years, Cyndney Bernanrd,  “who sticks with me through all the rotten and the bliss”.

Tina Fey’s “Prayer For A Daughter”: Hilarious!

Tina Fey’s “prayer for a daughter” is reason enough to make you want to go out and buy her new book Bossypants.

Whether you have a daughter or not, any parent can surely relate to this hilarious “prayer”.

“First, Lord: No tattoos. May neither Chinese symbol for truth nor Winnie-the-Pooh holding the FSU logo stain her tender haunches.

May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the Beauty.

When the Crystal Meth is offered, may she remember the parents who cut her grapes in half And stick with Beer.

Guide her, protect her when crossing the street, stepping onto boats, swimming in the ocean, swimming in pools, walking near pools, standing on the subway platform, crossing 86th Street, stepping off of boats, using mall restrooms, getting on and off escalators, driving on country roads while arguing, leaning on large windows, walking in parking lots, riding Ferris wheels, roller-coasters, log flumes, or anything called “Hell Drop,” “Tower of Torture,” or “The Death Spiral Rock ‘N Zero G Roll featuring Aerosmith,” and standing on any kind of balcony ever, anywhere, at any age.

Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance. Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes And not have to wear high heels. What would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I’m asking You, because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit.

May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers.

Grant her a Rough Patch from twelve to seventeen.Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long, For childhood is short – a Tiger Flower blooming Magenta for one day – And adulthood is long and dry-humping in cars will wait.

O Lord, break the Internet forever, that she may be spared the misspelled invective of her peers And the online marketing campaign for Rape Hostel V: Girls Just Wanna Get Stabbed.

And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister, Give me the strength, Lord, to yank her directly into a cab in front of her friends, For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it.

And should she choose to be a Mother one day, be my eyes, Lord, that I may see her, lying on a blanket on the floor at 4:50 A.M., all-at-once exhausted, bored, and in love with the little creature whose poop is leaking up its back. “My mother did this for me once,” she will realize as she cleans feces off her baby’s neck. “My mother did this for me.” And the delayed gratitude will wash over her as it does each generation and she will make a Mental Note to call me. And she will forget. But I’ll know, because I peeped it with Your God eyes.

Amen.”

Celeb Baby News: Tina Fey is Pregnant and Mariska Hargitay Adopts!

tina fey, tina fey pregnantThere is tons of baby news this week in Hollywood!

First up, Tina Fey is preggers again.  She announced her exciting news during the taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The funny mummy and 30 Rock star is five months along. She and hubby, composer Jeff Richmond, also have 5½-year-old daughter Alice.

Fey is promoting her new book, Bossypants, and will be appearing in an upcoming Saturday Night Live reunion.

Oprah’s interview with Fey is scheduled to air on April 12th.

Mariska Hargitay is a mom again!  She and husband Peter Hermann adopted a baby, Amaya Josephine, about a week ago.  Their daughter joins their 4-year-old son August.

“I’m deliriously happy,” Mariska tells People magazine of the adoption. “From the minute she was born, she was just surprisingly alert and so full of love.”

Mariska and Peter faced the decision of adopting a child born in the United States or opting for an International adoption. Amaya was born in the USA.

“We were considering both international and domestic adoption and we’re thrilled that this is the way our prayers were answered,” she adds.

“We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We’re just so happy she’s here.”

natalie portmanNatalie Portman is pregnant for the very first time, but did you know that she is superstitious about her pregnancy?

The Black Swan star admitted to Access Hollywood that she’s not shopping for her baby quite yet.

“I think it’s a Jewish thing to be kind of superstitious,” she told.

“You don’t do any of the baby stuff before the baby arrives.”

This superstition is familiar to me because in Greek culture, some are afraid to share news of a pregnancy or prepare for baby’s arrival for fear of something going wrong.

How is her pregnancy so far?  “My back is not feeling great right now. But everything’s really great otherwise.”
