Golden Globes

I've been enjoying a brief respite from work this weekend....we had no school on Friday and have no school on Monday. I've gotten some much-needed erranding done, including spending some of my sweet gift cards from the holidays. I'll share my major sale score later this week! I'm quite proud of myself.

My big excitement for today? Golden Globe Awards tonight.

Yes, I know what you're thinking.....that's your big excitement for the day....or even the weekend? That's right, I have potential to be a big looooos-ah. I know this event does not even land on the radar of many people.

Here are the reasons I am excited to watch....

1) I enjoy the red carpet and the fashion of all of the women. The good.....

And the......interesting?

Even the men. Like.....I truly hope that Ryan Gosling is in attendance tonight.

I like him in a tux.....or workout clothes.

One celebrity I can't stand? Lea Michele. Sorry, gleeks. She looks so self-absorbed all the time. I wonder if she'll be able to find work once her character graduates from Glee. 

2) Unlike the Oscars--which can be so highbrow and pretentious--the Golden Globes features movies and TV. And the actors from the best TV shows are there. Some of my favorites?

via  I also think Jon Stewart is kind of hot.

3) Ricky Gervais. 

He is hosting the ceremony this year, returning from last year. If you did not watch last year, he seriously pissed celebrities off with his jokes. It was awesome!! It was said that he would never host again, but then they must have realized what a ratings boon it would be if he hosted. I think he is just hilarious....the accent, the jokes. He was recently quoted (not exactly) as saying that he was not there for the millionaires in the audience, he was there for all of the people watching at home and his jokes are what they want to see. Amen! Seriously....he was drinking a beer in the opening of last year's show, as shown above.

You know what my DVR will be set to record tonight......

Gervais is hilarious. I like how he gets all the celebrities undies in a bunch. They need that every now and then.

Ryan Gosling? Really? He's named after a baby goose, for crissakes. At least my ancestors made roofs.
