Notes on the Golden Globes
Sofia Coppola, in her Golden Globe screenplay acceptance speech: "I'll thank everyone later because I have to get off the stage." Spoken like a true Hollywood daughter...
(J.'s advice, told to the TV during almost every awards ceremony when some starlet is going on and on and on about her win and the audience is applauding increasingly less-enthusiastically and the orchestra's trying to decide if her rank on the Hollywood totem pole allows them to start the music: "Thank your parents, get off the stage.")
Wow, the Golden Globes ended spang on time. The 11 o'clock news started, by the lower-right-corner clock, at 11:00. I think this is unprecedented in the history of televised awards shows.
