Five reasons to watch the Golden Globes

As I’ve said repeatedly on this blog, the Golden Globes are very silly (and, contrary to popular belief, mean nothing whatsoever in terms of Oscar buzz). But I always watch them anyway, because silly can be a lot of fun. Here are five reasons why:
— Because it was at the Golden Globes that Emma Thompson gave a speech in which she pretended to be Jane Austen, and it was heavenly, particularly the problems Emma kept having with her hair.

— Because, even though Meryl Streep isn’t nominated this year, somebody might give a speech as good as hers in 2007. Note how she turns into Miranda Priestly at the end.

— Because someone might follow Hugh Laurie’s example and decide who to thank in his acceptance speech by drawing random names from his pocket (in Laurie’s case: the script supervisor, the hairdresser, and his agent).

— Because somebody, like Drew Barrymore last year, might decide to wear a gown with a sequined hedgehog on the shoulder. (And the hip, too.)

— And because I’ll be here at the office, live-blogging the red carpet and the ceremony, and it might get a little lonely without at least a few of you chiming in. Join me online here, starting at around 4pm Sunday, and we’ll have some fun.
