...Golden Globes live blog with updates

How I enjoy watching the Golden Globe Awards! TV and movie stars get dressed up, party it up, and the hosts and presenters seem much more relaxed than at the Oscars. Of course the awards mean nothing, and mostly it's about the fashion. I live for this stuff.

The awards 'ceremony' just started and I've already spent most of the late afternoon and evening in front of the tv watching the red carpet fashion and Ryan Seacrest.

Tonight's carpet is full of ruffles, nude tones, reds and pinks, dark green, and black. My vote for Best Dressed goes to the lovely Emma Stone.

In a night full of ruffles, Emma Stone is best dressed in this simple peach Calvin Klein collection gown. Love this!

Brother-Kissing Homewrecker, along with actresses I actually like, chose to wear gowns of emerald green (a colour I hate). Sorry Peggy Olson.
8:05: Lovin' Ricky Gervais so far. He's already cracked jokes about Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Hugh Hefner and the gay Scientologists, and 'The Tourist'. Ha!

8:10: Scarlett Johannson, who is one of the hottest women on earth for sure is not showing off her assets tonight, but she chose to draw attention to herself with her 'Bride of Frankenstein' hairdo.

8:20: Leighton Meester is presenting something, I don't know, because I'm distracted by her horrible dress. Clearly Leighton shares a stylist with Scarlett Johansson, and they thought they were attending the Country Music Awards. How else to explain their Reba McEntire dresses? 

Beauties, you're not Reba!

8:25: Bruce Willis! Totally bald now but somehow still sexy. Looks like he's ready to kill Ricky Gervais for the Ashton Kutcher joke.

8:30: How old is Michelle Pfeiffer? Still gorgeous and so thin.

8:32: Eva Longoria nearly tripped on her stunning black dress. Unfortunately she gets to introduce someone really boring.

I love this dress on Eva Longoria!

8:35: Best Actor Drama. Jon Hamm looks humble and adorable and his hair looks beautiful tonight. Unfortunately they don't award for looks (or for best acting and charisma either), because Steve Buscemi just won. Major bummer.

8:38: Boardwalk Empire wins over Mad Men and The Good Wife for Best TV Drama. I'm still bitter that Lost, the best show ever, wasn't even nominated. What a joke.

8:40: Close up to Angelina Brother-kissing Homewrecker fixing Pitt's tie. I HATE this show.

8:44: Andrew Garfield, love that charming Brit accent even if he's blowing his bit introducing 'The Social Network'. Love this movie, even with JT. There's Jesse Eisenberg, looking like he'd rather be home watching in his pjs. Cute bits from Gervais about Heather Mills.

8:46 Alec Baldwin and JLo, who looks radiant, presenting Best Song. Cue the cheesy clips. Some song from Burlesque wins. Time to get heat up some pesto pizza and get a glass of red wine to wash it down. What the heck happened to Christina Aguilera's face?!

8:50: Best Score nominees and clips, including Inception. Facebook movie wins, deservedly.

8:56: Justin Beiber (and his stupid hair) and the extremely talented Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), as the young ones, present Best Animated pic, which predictably goes to Toy Story 3. First glimpse of Colin Firth! And Brangelina PDA. Please STOP.

9:00: Gervais can't resist the Robert Downey Jr rehab jokes.Downey is presenting Best Actress, Comedy and he's the best presenter of the night so far. There's Annette Bening (love her black glasses) and Warren Beatty! Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams (who always brings her Dawson's Creek costar, Busy Phillips)! And Annette wins! She's beautiful and classy, and naturally gives a gracious speech, thanking Julianne Moore and the '1962 winner for most promising actor', Warren Beatty! Love her deep voice. And there's Mark Ruffalo, who always looks rumpled but still with that sexy vibe, you know?

9:12: Geoffrey Rush and Tilda Swinton presenting a tv award to Al Pacino. Al just kissed someone who looks really young enough to be his granddaughter. Well maybe she was. And first standing ovation of the night. For some reason, they're showing Robert De Niro during Pacino's speech. Time for more drinks. No, the chick is Pacino's girlfriend.

9:16: Best Actress, Tv movie or mini series goes to Claire Danes. Thank god, because I was afraid it would go to Jennifer Love Hewitt, whew. Danes looks lovely in her bright pink Calvin Klein (who is now my favorite designer tonight), but she really really needs to eat.

Claire Danes in Calvin Klein

9:20: I admire Helena Bonham Carter's one of a kind style. Tonight she chose to wear non-matching shoes and something by Vivienne Westwood, as usual. Gotta love that.

9:25: Tina Fey and Steve Carrell presenting Best Screenplay. So funny! And the Globe goes to...Aaron Sorkin. Is it too early to predict a 'Social Network' sweep? There's Armie Hamer, who is really handsome, and will hopefully have a great career. Sorkin kisses up to Zuckerberg, and says 'smart girls have more fun', to make up for the fact the 'TSN' was demeaning to women. So he's not as much of a dick he appears to be.

9:30: Chris Evans and some tall Brit guy I don't recognize presents tv Best Supporting Actress to Jane Lynch. I'm tired of Glee, but Lynch is charmingly witty. There's Sandra Bullock, with thick bangs! Mila Kunis and James Franco! Michelle Wiliams and Jake Gyllenhaal (sob).  Time for a slice of red velvet.

9:37: I don't get the swooning for Robert Pattinson, too skinny, too pale. He's presenting Foreign Film.  'I Am Love' looks good in this 1 second clip, but it doesn't win. 

9:40: Helen Mirren looking hot, presents 'The King's Speech', which I almost watched this weekend, but instead chose 'The Dilemma'. And there's my Colin.

9:47: OMG Jane Fonda looks about the same age as Annette Bening. Too bad she's presenting 'Burlesque'.

Jane Fonda, born in 1937 (just like my mom!) is 21 years older than Annette Bening. And yet...

9:49: TV Best Actor Comedy goes to Jim Parsons for 'Big Bang Theory', which to this day I've never watched and never will.

9:51: Jeremy Irons over enunciates in his crisp Brit accent, and it's annoying. I want Hugh Grant back, and I want him to show Irons how this is done. Anyway, Melissa Leo wins Best Supporting Actress for 'The Fighter'. I used to watch her on 'Homicide' and she was amazing on 'Frozen River'. so good for her. It's great when these gifted character actors get recognized. Leo's 'co-nominees', Helena Bonham Carter and Mila Kunis, look like as if they want Melissa off the stage, now.

9:59: Matt Damon (not sure why) is presenting Cecil B Demille Award to Robert De Niro. Couldn't they get Joe Pesci, or even Ben Stiller? Damon gives Fredo's speech from Godfather2'; does he realize that Deniro didn't say those lines? Has he not seen Godfather2? Cue to clips from Godfather2, and um New York New York, and Raging Bull, and Goodfellas, and Midnight Run, and Cape Fear, and  now the good stuff, The Untouchables, Casino, Taxi Driver! Curiously, not 'Meet the Parents'. Standing ovation for Deniro! Did you know he's 67? He's aged well, I think. Please stop with the Brangelina sightings! And there's a teary Tom Hanks! Deniro is reading his speech from the teleprompter, and insults the waiters and the Foreign Press Awards. He's surprisingly funny.

10:14: Megan Fox (who could stand to gain 10-15 pounds) is presenting 'The Tourist', ugh. Bathroom break.

10:15: Annette Bening again, presenting Best Director. And the Globe goes to...David Fincher for 'The Social Network'. hmmm. But another win for 'TSN' means they'll show Armie Hamer. Fincher is directing the American version of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'. The Swedish version was so well done; I don't understand the need for a remake even if Daniel Craig plays Blomkvist in this version. Why mess it up?

10:18: Jimmy Fallon and January Jones (who I hate somewhat irrationally) presents Best TV Comedy to...Glee. This is not a good night for my favorite shows. Oh well. Lea Michele is wearing a pale pink Oscar de la Renta with lots of ruffles. How tall is Finn? He's towering over everyone on stage. Johnny Depp looks crazy, as usual.

10:24: Why is Alicia Keys presenting 'Black Swan'? And sounding like a New Orleans voodoo priestess when she speaks?

10:25: Halle Berry has an unbelievably stunning body! And the Globe for Best Actor Comedy goes to Paul Giamatti for 'Barney's Version', who can't stop swooning over "Halle Berry, jesus". I would have liked to see Jakey win, but clearly the Foreign Press people don't award actors for looks. At least Depp didn't win. Giamatti gives a shout out to Scott Speedman and Canada! yay!

10:33: Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who should've received a nomination for Inception) is presenting the movie for Best Picture Drama. Love him, but I guess they couldn't get Leo.

10:34: Jeff Bridges presents Best Actress, Drama to... Natalie Portman, who gives a soulful kiss to her fiance before she walks onstage. She is EXQUISITE. She spends a lot of time talking about her fiance, gets kind geeky and gushy about him, which is endearing.

10:39: Funny bit from Gervais about Tom Hanks and Tim Allen (ha!) who are presenting Best Movie, Comedy to.... 'The Kids Are Alright". Meh, it's overrated if you ask me. But I suppose it is superior to the other nominees, especially 'The Tourist'. And Mark Ruffalo gets to go onstage.

10:43: Ryan Gosling! and Sandra Bullock! not together of course, but I think it's a perfect time to reunite.

10:47: Sandra Bullock is presenting Best Actor, Drama. I want Ryan to win. But the award goes to Colin Firth, who I also want to win! I'm psyched for a charming speech in a sexy accent. Lucky Mrs Firth.

10:52: It's past my bedtime and I am sleepy. I hope this ends soon.

10:55: Michael Douglas is onstage to present the final award of the evening (and not a moment too soon) and gets a standing ovation. The Best Drama goes to 'The Social Network'. What did I tell ya? Armie Hamer goes onstage (gosh he's tall), but Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield do not. So they too, are asked to go onstage. Hey, Justin Timberlake isn't there. Why not, I wonder?

10:59: And it ends on schedule. Goodnight.
