Chat Room Review of the 2002 Golden Globe Awards
Inventing a Golden Globes Drinking Game
[Stine] Do they get tired of having to sit with people that they worked with 2 years ago?
[LaMoll] Nice dress, Halle Berry.
[Coolia] Jennifer Connelly wins. Does this foreshadow a Dreamworks sweep for A Beautiful Mind?
[Stine] Everybody drink whenever Dreamworks is thanked.
[Coolia] Sarah Jessica Parker, we dont like the hair.
[Jamonit] That dress makes her boobs sag. but it's a very Korean style...only Koreans cover up the top half. i think Sarah looks shiny too.
[Coolia] Sela Ward - how would you describe that dress?
[Stine] Butt ugly. Bad prom dress.
[GeeSo] How inappropriate for a 45 year-old. But at least it had color. Everyone's wearing black tonight .
[Coolia] Charlie Sheen wins - good comeback for him.
[LaMoll] Hugh Jackman..he's all man.
[Coolia] Sex and the City wins best comedy show! Kim Catrall - cool dress...it's orange.
[Coolia] Band of Brothers wins best mini series...Dreamworks..everybody drink.
[LaMoll] Keifer Sutherland! lets hear it for the brat pack.
[Jamonit] Kiefer looks tan - nice that he won though. hasn't he been ignored for awhile?
[Coolia] Ithink Kiefer has been using fake tan.
[GeeSo] Could be. He's naturally pasty so any color is suspicious on him.
[Stine] Judy Davis..she looks like she bought that dress at Casual Corner or Ann Taylor. Her hair looks like she cut it herself.
[Coolia] The Judy Garland movie looks good though.
[Stine] They've all got on silver ties.
[Coolia] Harrison Ford is doing a lot of schmoozing. He must be drunk.
[Stine] Renee Zelwegger has slits for eyes.
[Coolia] Gene Hackman! yes!
[LaMoll] Looks like Nicole Kidman has bangs issues.
[Stine] She's keeping her head up so we don't see her goody barette.
[Coolia] Akiva Goldman wins best screenplay for A Beautiful Mind and thanks Spielberg...everybody drink!
[LaMoll] Nice speech, Jennifer Garner...self-deprecation goes a long way..."I know i was good in Dude, Where's My Car."
[Kath] Buffy should have won. Jennifer Garner strikes good poses in outfits. I'm not sure that qualifies as acting.
[Coolia] That guy is talking too much for just winning best score
[Coolia] Rachel Griffiths - is that a wind chime or a dress?
[Jamonit] She looks like a poodle.
[Stine] Big night for the aussies.
[Coolia] Young Ryan Philippe...he held his own in Gosford Park.
[Coolia] Cameron Diaz..ugh...I think it's safe to say we hate this dress, collectively.
[Kath] Yes, it looks like a beach towel or polyester blanket.
[LaMoll] We like Sting.
[Kath] Sting's cute.
[GeeSo] Is Jessica Alba trying to be all Angelina Jolie from last year with the white suit thing?
[GeeSo] If you're on HBO or an Australian - you win!
[Coolia] Iguess now that i have HBO i should really be watching The Sopranos and Six Feet Under.
[Jamonit] And Sex in the Citay.
[Kath] Would you consider that homework?
[Jamonit] I thought Julia Louis looked very nice (oh my..did i just say something KIND?).
[Stine] Alan Ball's eyes are so far apart they might as well be ears and his nose is mad crooked.
[Kath] GeeSo and I are not sure who the Hollywood Foreign Press actually are.
[Jamonit] Yeah - was wondering the same thing. H - foreign ?? press?? do they report overseas? are they all foreigners?
[Coolia] They are foreign movie critics...but they are mysterious.
[Jamonit] Do they report about foreigners?
[Kath] Are they overseas reporters?
[Coolia] Like the movie critic for The London Times would be a member.
[Jamonit] So if you're not American, you're foreign.
[Jamonit] What if you live in LA, write a story for The London Times, but are French?
[Coolia] I think anyone outside of America who reviews movies in print or on TV.
[GeeSo] You're either with us or against us.
[Coolia] Is it polically correct to call people foreign?
[Jamonit] I don't think so akchually.
[Coolia] Whoever they are, they throw a good party...i mean, look at all that schmoozing.
[Stine] I've been reduced to enough boredom to pick up Cosmo.
[Jamonit] I'm bored too and it's only the first hour of the show here on the west coast. Why do we continue to torture ourselves?
[Jamonit] If it's only the foreign press that puts on the show, that explains all the Limeys.
[Kath] Does the show need more Americans we can be properly be catty about? I'm not sure we really want to be catty about Rachel Griffiths--whereas with Meg Ryan it's easy.
[Coolia] I have nothing catty to say about Rachel Griffiths except that her dress looked like a wind chime.
[LaMoll] Poor Ben Kingsley. He didn't win either of the awards he was nominated for.
[Coolia] Well, at least Ben can be secure in the knowledge that he's still a sexy beast in your eyes.
[GeeSo] Ben Affleck is replacing Harrison Ford in the Jack Ryan movies? Huh? Whose bad decision was that?
[Coolia] Ireally dont like those Tom Clancy movies...Ben can have them..I mark them as the start of Harrison's downward spiral.
[Kath] Will we be watching Tom Cruise accept that award in twenty years?
[Coolia] Look at HF's earring.
[Stine] He's got an earring because he's got cool friends like Ed Bradley. He's so stoic sitting there.
[Kath] What good movies has HF been in besides Witness? I can't think of them.
[GeeSo] Working Girl!
[Coolia] Mosquito Coast, Frantic
[Kath] Oh, I guess if I were watching instead of typing I'd know.
[Coolia] The Fugitive..that was a good one.
[GeeSo] Yeah, he so outshone Tommy Lee Jones. Can i throw in something about Tommy's ugliness even if he's not part of the awards show?
[Kath] Look, it's Celestia.
[Coolia] Six Days, Seven Nights is so bad it shouldn't even be part of this montage.
[Kath] Highest grossing film star...oh so it's all about money, Ben.
[Coolia] Blade Runner..that was a great movie.
[Stine] Get a haircut, Brad.
[Jamonit] Does anyone know...is Jennifer Aniston preggers?
[GeeSo] Idon't think so. I subscribe to People and that little bit of news would be in there.
[Coolia] You're brave to admit that..if you like, i can edit it out of this transcript.
[GeeSo] No way! Iwant the world to know.
[Jamonit] Hey, gotta keep up on that stuff. I usually watch ET (sister makes me) and they hadn't said anything...
[Kath] Harrison's really dull.
[Coolia] He's trying to be humble.
[Kath] He's still dull.
[Kath] The nominated directors all look ancient.
[Coolia] Not Baz.
[GeeSo] OK, i predict Ron Howard.
[Coolia] Robert Altman! ooooh cool!
[Stine] That Lord of the Rings director looks like Bruce Villanch.
[Coolia] Does the foreign press vote on a best foreign film? because it wouldnt be foreign to them.
[Kath] It would be to most of them.
[GeeSo] Iwas telling Kath that Kevin Spacey was going to get on a soapbox about Ted Demme. He did the same thing on the red carpet.
[Coolia] Yeah, Stine is not so proud of her celebrity obsession at the moment, especially after the two crap films he put out this year...The Shipping News and K-Pax.
[Kath] Shrek...I have a hard time watching movies filled with clay things.
[GeeSo] Reese Witherspoon is so cool. i loved Legally Blond.
[Jamonit] Reese is cool. Her hubby was being kind of a
dorkus at the arrival thingy...
[GeeSo] Dick Clark sucks at red carpet stuff. He's no Joan. He's not even Melissa.
[Jamonit] Dick wasn't making any sense. He did suck indeed.
[GeeSo] Here comes the sanctimony...
[Coolia] Every time Tom Hanks come on we have to see an adoring gaze from his wife.
[Coolia] Hmm, Sissy Spacek wins best actress...I thought Halle Berry would win.
[Stine] She looks like she's been gardening all day.
[GeeSo] Give it up for the coal miner's daughter.
[Coolia] And Carrie...she's wearing that jacket so nobody can see her dirty pillows.
[Coolia] There's Angelina's pantsuit again...on Annette Bening this time.
[GeeSo] And for once she's not pregnant.
[Coolia] the beret on Billy Bob...never a good fashion choice
[Coolia] Is that Russell Crowe's Australian bimbo girlfriend?
[Kath] Doesn't he have a lot of female buddies?
[Coolia] Russell starts his acceptance speech with "g'day"...see, he doesn't want people to forget he's just a regular bloke.
[LaMoll] He said Dreamworks...everybody drink.
[GeeSo] At least he's wearing a real tie this year - no little string thingy.
[Kath] He can still cut the hair and lose the saggy man breasts.
[Coolia] Denzel never gets any love from these award shows.
[Kath] Didn't Hollywood already honor him for Glory?
[Coolia] Yeah, but that was just supporting actor.
[Kath] Hollywood isn't as PC as it wants to be?
[Kath] A Beautiful Mind, best picture. That's what I figured.
[Coolia] Me too, but i thought maybe Lord of the Rings. Mel Gibson's losing his hair.
[GeeSo] And his beauty.
[Coolia] Imagine that..an awards show that ended early. now we get a minute of Dick Clark freestylin'.
[GeeSo] This show is NOT the biggest hollywood party of the year. I wish they would stop saying that.
[Coolia] That show could have used a few production numbers.
[GeeSo] Yeah. Everyone always complains about them, but they do give respite. Could have been cool to see Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor sing.
[Coolia] It breaks up the dullness with a different kind of dullness.
