Welcome to franklyHANK’s first live blog. For those of you new to this, it’s simple. Just keep refreshing the page to see my updated comments throughout the Golden Globe Awards telecast on NBC. Newest comments are posted on top. You can make comments to the blog, but they will not post until I approve them, so give me some time. It’ll be a busy, but fun night.
Be sure to tune in to Windy City LIVE tomorrow on ABC7 Chicago or windycitylive.com, both at 9AM. Paige Wiser and David Plummer will recap the winners and losers and stylists Eric Himel and Amy Tara Koch will talk all things fashion. Let the blogging begin.
ALL TIMES CENTRAL
9:56pm Thank God this show ended on time b/c if it had run long, I would have killed myself. It’s over. Amen and Good night. Hope you enjoyed the live blog.
9:54pm Harrison Ford has the big award… Best Motion Picture – Drama: THE DESCENDANTS. Are you kidding me? Really? Really? “The Help” will win the Oscar. The Golden Globes are not really the pre-cursor to the Oscars, so I will hope for better things.
9:47pm Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama: GEORGE CLOONEY for “The Descendants.” Yawn! Although the golf joke about Michael Fasbender’s penis was pretty good. LOL
9:39pm Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical: THE ARTIST
9:37pm Meryl curses when she can’t find her glasses!!! Brilliant. As the music plays her off, she screams, “Oh no, no!!!” And her best line… “And I love you, Viola. You’re my girl.” Gracious to a fault. But Viola should have won! She’ll get the Oscar.
Tuesday night NBC launched its latest reality-competition series called “The Voice.” I admit I was intreagued from the get go. I love me some Christina Aguilera. And I love me some Adam Levine. Cee Lo rocks and Blake Shelton has that sexy country thing going on. Still, no matter the star power, if the show concept isn’t there, it isn’t there. Fortunately for NBC, not only is the show concept there, it ROCKS!!!!
“The Voice” hooks you from the start. No wonder it was the top-rated series Tuesday night with more than 11 million viewers and more than 5 million of them in the coveted age 18-49 demo. The concept is simple… great voices show off their skills as vocalists and the judges compete to have them on their respective teams. The voices will be weeded out by competing against each other with their judges as their guides, until “The Voice” is crowned. Not only is the singing talent spectacular, but so are the judges and they are competitive as all get out. Adam and Christina have this flirtation thing going on. Cee Lo and Blake Shelton are so funny, but they all want to win. Adam Levine even tells one contestant in his hopes to whoo him, “I wanna win this f***er.
Check out episode one online at NBC.com and then make Tuesday nights on NBC a must for your DVR. It’s about time a new talent competition has come along that deserves you and your family’s time. “The Voice” very much does.
