Golden Globes Live Play-By-Play

The first major awards show for film of the season is tonight. I’ll be covering the 73rd Golden Globes with running play-by-play (so keep refreshing the page). A few hours after the event, I’ll be recording a podcast recapping the entire show. I’ll start my play-by-play at 8PM.

That’s it for the show. I will have plenty to say on the recap podcast which I’ll be recording momentarily and uploading within the next few hours.

11:03 – BEST PICTURE (DRAMA) – The Revenant

An upset as it was supposed to be a showoff between Mad Max and Spotlight. This could be one of those reasons why people criticize the Golden Globes.

10:59 – One award left…and we’re in commercials.

10:55 – BEST ACTOR (DRAMA) – Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)

I’m not a fan of this one. DiCaprio was great in this movie but Eddie Redmayne was on another level in The Danish Girl.

10:53 – BEST ACTRESS (DRAMA) – Brie Larson (Room)

The one film in this category that I didn’t get a chance to see. I really liked Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl but I’ve heard so many great things about Larson in this film. I hope I get a chance to see it sooner than later.

10:47 – The show is long enough. They need to cut of the microphone off of a person who acknowledges the music playing but flat out says they’ll keep going no matter what.

10:44 – BEST PICTURE (COMEDY) – The Martian

One of my favourite movies of the year but it shouldn’t have won because it’s not a comedy. They even acknowledge this during the acceptance speech.

10:41 – Jim Carrey looks homeless and he’s talking about how he needs sleep.

10:37 – Before anyone gets the wrong idea; I di enjoy Jennifer Lawrence in Joy. However, she won in a weak category. The Best Actress (Drama) category is much more competitive and I don’t think she was came close to the work of Rooney Mara or Alicia Vikander this year.

10:33 – BEST ACTRESS (COMEDY) – Jennifer Lawrence (Joy)

Even though Lawrence had the better performance, I thought Amy Schumer should have won because she was actually in a comedy. There is no chance that Lawrence will win the Oscar for Best Actress this year.

Since when is Kentucky a town?

10:25 – BEST TELEVISION ACTRESS (DRAMA) – Taraji P. Henson (Empire – Fox)

She yells at someone helping up the stairs and then the prompter for telling her to wrap it up despite her being on for way too long.

10:23 – BEST DIRECTOR – Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (The Revenant)

Whille I did predict this win (but not my choice), it wasn’t the favourite and it does worry me that The Revenant might win more awards. It was good but not that good.

10:18 – Expect the show to go a lot faster as we still have eight awards left (six for film and two for television).

10:04 – This should be good; the lifetime achievement award for Denzel Washington. He’s one of the best actors ever. Tom Hanks is doing the introduction (another one of the best ever).

10:00 – A good chunk of film awards are coming up this hour so I’ll finally have something to talk about soon.


9:55 – Ricky Gervais and Mel Gibson. If Gervais ever hosts again, I’d be surprised. Hopefully, I’ll be surprised.

9:51 – BEST ORIGINAL SONG – Writing’s on the Wall – Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes (Spectre)

9:43 – BEST TELEVISION ACTRESS (LIMITED SERIES) – Lady Gaga (American Horror Story: Hotel – FX)


9:32 – BEST TELEVISION ACTOR (COMEDY/MUSICAL) – Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle – Amazon)

9:29 – BEST SCREENPLAY – Aaron Sorkin (Steve Jobs)

That’s a big upset. I can’t comment because I didn’t see the movie but I don’t know if this movie has a chance to win the Oscar.

9:27 – When the show isn’t on an ad breaks, it’s really funny.

9:20 – BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR – Sylvester Stallone (Creed)

9:18 – Ryan Gosling needs corrective lenses. His squinting at the teleprompter was super obvious and kind of weird.

9:16 – BEST ANIMATED FILM – Inside Out

There are going to be some film snobs really upset about that one. They shouldn’t be because both film critics and the general public absolutely loved this fim.

9:10 – And another commercial break. This show is starting to lose it’s momentum.

9:08 – BEST ACTOR (COMEDY) – Matt Damon (The Martian)

Ricky Gervais is going to lose it over this win. So should the other nominees as The Martian was not a comedy.

9:07 – No awards in ten minutes. Just ads and trailers.

8:57 – BEST TELEVISION ACTOR (DRAMA) – Jon Hamm (Mad Men – AMC)

8:54 – Tarantino put his foot in his mouth with that acceptance speech. Jamie Foxx did not look too happy with the ghetto comment.

8:51 – BEST ORIGINAL SCORE – Ennio Morricone (The Hateful Eight)

Other than the cinematography, I thought that the best thing about The Hateful Eight was the music.

8:48 – BEST TELEVISION SUPPORTING ACTOR – Christian Slater (Mr. Robot – USA)

8:46 – I did not enjoy Spy but I did think Jason Statham was hilarious in it.

8:40 – BEST TELEVISION ACTOR (LIMITED SERIES) – Oscar Issac (Show Me a Hero – HBO)

8:39 – You’re a presenter…not a nominee. No cussing. I don’t even know who you are.


8:35 – You know, if they had played the Benny Hill soundtrack throughout the film, The Martian, it would have been a hilarious comedy.

8:32 – The awards have been dumb but the show has so far been extremely funny.

8:25 – BEST TELEVISION SERIES (COMEDY/MUSICAL) – Mozart in the Jungle (Amazon)

8:22 – BEST TELEVISION ACTRESS (COMEDY/MUSICAL) – Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – The CW)

8:16 – People still watch television? That’s a thing?

8:15 – BEST TELEVISION SUPPORTING ACTRESS – Maura Tierney (The Affair)

8:11 – BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS – Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs)

A bit of upset here. I thought Leigh would get it. I didn’t see her movie so maybe she was amazing in it. I found that it was the weakest category of the evening.

8:10PM – Okay, Jonah Hill was actually pretty funny.

8:08PM – Now we have Jonah Hill with a bear hat on. That was a quick jump off a cliff from Gervais to Hill.

8:07PM – Gervais should just be given all tje awards of everything.

8:04PM – Gervais just called the Golden Globes a sham. He’s right. Just look at the Best Comedy category.

8:02PM – Nothing against Trevor Noah but Ricky Gervais should have been host of The Daily Show.
