66th Annual Golden Globe Awards – 2009 Golden Globe Winners

I’m not going to be doing any live blogging during the Golden Globe Awards since so many other people are, plus I already know the winners (see below). But I am going to jot down some random thoughts while watching the Golden Globe Red Carpet Special.

7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
1. Why did they start off with the Jonas Brothers – couldn’t they find someone classier?
2. Why is Tiki Barber hosting the Red Carpet?
3. Why did they talk to Aaron Eckhart twice?
4. What the hell is up with all of Sting’s hair?
5. Robert Downey Jr. is the coolest dude ever.
6. Ooops, Nancy O’Dell…Sting isn’t nominated, he’s presenting.
7. Seriously, Nancy O’Dell needs to have a script to follow.
8. Lighter colored dresses seem to be in this year.
9. Is Salma Hayek’s accent ever going to go away?
10. Brooke Burke’s hair good, Nancy O’Dell’s hair bad.
