Six Buzzy Moments From Last Night’s Golden Globes

So the 2014 Golden Globe awards are over, but as per usual, the evening had its share of WTF/holy shit/GIF-able moments because booze. If you missed the show but want to pretend you didn’t, here’s what your friends are probably talking about today.

1. Jennifer Lawrence Videobombed Taylor Swift


Then she joked about pushing her down the stairs, during which Taylor gave a rare shoutout to her haters.


But then we found out JLaw and Taylor are actually pals who text on the regular, and suddenly the whole world made no sense at all.

2. One Network Got a Crash Course in ‘Fun Facts’

During the red carpet show, someone at E! lost their damned minds and flashed this when Michael J. Fox was on camera:

Uhhhh that's not fun. That's not fun at all.
Uhhhh that’s not fun. That’s not fun at all.

The gaffe quickly became a meme — and E! later issued a mea culpa, saying in a statement, “We regret the insensitive classification of Michael J Fox’s Parkinson’s diagnosis during our Eonline live stream. We understand the serious nature of the disease and sincerely apologize.”

(Still no apology for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” though.)

3. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Were Great. (Derp.)

Their second of at least three Globes hosting stints proved their brilliance last year wasn’t a fluke. (But really, anyone familiar with either of them shouldn’t be surprised.) Here are their best bits, courtesy of Vulture.

But if you can’t watch that, this joke is the only one you need:

4. Jacqueline Bisset Seemed Like She’d Be Fun to Party With

Jacqueline Bisset‘s win for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series, Miniseries, or Movie for “Dancing on the Edge” was a stunner, but no one was more shocked than she was.

And after a trek to the stage that required GPS, a zip line and at least four Sherpas (srsly, Golden Globes, how’s about next year we put the nominees up front instead of in a trailer in the parking lot), she gave a loopy, rambling speech that immediately made her a trending topic on Twitter.

5. Emma Thompson Became Everyone’s Lord and Savior

Midway through the show, the typically very regal Emma Thompson took the stage to hand out a Globe. But with a martini glass in one hand and her Louboutins in the other, she gave off the air of someone who’d been forced to take a business call in the middle of a party. The number of effs she did not give was beyond measure.

I love her so.

6. Mia and Ronan Farrow Threw Shade at Woody Allen

None of them were even there, but when Woody Allen got a lifetime achievement award (accepted by Diane Keaton because Woody never shows up for these things), his ex Mia Farrow and her son Ronan (who’s also legally Woody’s son but everyone knows he’s actually Frank Sinatra’s kid) had a little something to say about it on Twitter.

Mia took the high road:

But Ronan? Mmmmmnot so much.


And there you have it. (For a total wrap-up of all the night’s events, this is a good place to start.)

Jennifer Lawrence Beats Miley Cyrus for AP Entertainer of the Year — By One Vote

Even David Letterman wants to pet her

Human kitten calendar Jennifer Lawrence just gave us all one more reason to love her — she bested pop culture rerun Miley Cyrus by one vote to become the Associated Press Entertainer of the Year, thus sparing us the endlessly self-congratulatory string of tweets with which Cyrus would’ve otherwise honored herself.

The AP asked 70 US editors and news directors to choose the person or entity that had the “most influence” on entertainment and culture in 2013, and once the ballots were tallied, JLaw’s 15 votes gave her first place, Cyrus was the runner-up with 14 votes, and Netflix took third with 13 votes (for “altering the TV landscape with its on-demand format and hit original series”).

Lawrence — who started the year with an Academy Award for best actress, fueled a box-office franchise as “The Hunger Games” heroine Katniss Everdeen, and wrapped 2013 with a critically acclaimed performance in “American Hustle” that just earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations — charmed fans everywhere with her candid sincerity.

She was also a fashion darling — a muse for Dior — who made headlines with her pixie haircut.

Kristi Runyan of The Derrick and The News-Herald Newspapers in Oil City, Pa. wrote, “It’s refreshing to see a young woman not squandering her talent and success by succumbing to the temptations many do in Hollywood and who actively speaks about the ridiculous behavior of some of her peers.”

And speaking of such, Miley’s counting down the days until her new video comes out and retweeting fans like this who hope to artificially inflate the viewer numbers to give her a new record. Because playing fair is for loooozers.

Here’s Jennifer Lawrence Being Awesome. Again.

Newly-shorn Jennifer Lawrence was recently doing the red carpet thang at the London premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” when she caught sight of a young female fan in a wheelchair crying. And because Jennifer Lawrence is made of class and compassion and peanut butter cups, she had security bust through the barriers so she could comfort the girl.

Look, you may be sick of hearing what a glittering gem Lawrence is, but it’s shit like this that makes everyone love her. And the best part is that she’s not doing it for show. She’s kind and gorgeous and goofy and a dork all at once, with no pretension about her. Notice her or don’t — she has few effs to give. She’ll still be fabulous either way.

Jennifer Lawrence Boards the Pixie Cut Bandwagon


It’s been pixie cut mania lately. First Pam Anderson lopped off her locks (and looked great), then Kristin Chenoweth followed suit — and now “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence has gotten the same treatment.

J-Law posted the above to her official Facebook page with the caption:

Headed up north for #GLOBALFANDAY with The Hunger Games Catching Fire cast. Follow this page all day for updates!

As to be expected, she looks amazing — and not just because I’ve been enamored with pixie cuts since first seeing Dolores O’riordan in all those Cranberries videos in the early ’90s.

Of course, this being Facebook and all, the peanut gallery erupted in fury, with bitchy 13-year-old girls saying things like “I prefer long hair Jen” and “your hair? NOOOO,” but there’s a reason those proletariats aren’t cavorting around on Jen’s magical pixie cut plane.

Keep doing what you’re doing Jen. You have our full support.


Jennifer Lawrence Is Going to Eat Whether You Like It or Not

For the uninitiated, Jennifer Lawrence became everyone’s fantasy BFF after proving how human she is during much of last year’s awards season. At the Oscars alone, she spent part of her red carpet interview telling Ryan Seacrest she was hungry and asking where the food was. Then she won Best Actress and promptly face-planted on her way up the steps. And later, she gave a charmingly drunk interview to the press corps and launched a thousand GIFs after being visibly starstruck by Jack Nicholson.

The end result was that even the bitchiest of cynics (hi!) wanted to hug her and squeeze her and call her George.

She’s been busy working lately so we haven’t heard much from her, but some quotes from her new Harper’s Bazaar UK interview (via Fishwrapper) are making the rounds and reminding us why we fell in love with her in the first place. Specifically this, about being called “fat” early in her career:

“I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that.

“[Someone who brought it up recently] thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get.

“I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.’”

Man. This girl.
