Monster Blog Wednesday – Our Favorite Golden Globe Moments

The Golden Globes took place Sunday, and there was a lot to love about them. Ricky Gervais was naturally hysterical, and I will burn my own home to the ground before I dislike any awards show host who drinks a beer all night. The speeches were good, as were the presenters, and Denzel even won a makeshift lifetime achievement award. What were our favorite moments? Well, that’s what we’re hear for.

Sly Stallone Wins Best Supporting Actor

Sly Stallone has been in movies for 5 decades now, and while you’ll never hear him mentioned in the ‘greatest actors of our generation’ conversation, the characters he’s created will last forever. In that vain, it was pretty awesome to see him get recognized for his role in ‘Creed’, as the aging, wise and still emotionally fragile Rocky Balboa. Rocky is hands down one of the most iconic characters in movie history, and Stallone has found a way to breath life back into a character that we thought had thrown his final punch. ‘Creed’ was a very good movie, and the combination of Stallone and Michael B. Jordan was a fun one to watch. His speech was unjustly criticized, as he forgot to mention his fellow actors and director, but that’s just the society we live in now. We refuse to let anyone enjoy the moment, and even though this is Stallone’s first Golden Globe nomination in THIRTY EIGHT years, it’s much more accepted now to criticize his speech than congratulate the man who’s making it. My favorite part of his acceptance speech was when he proclaimed “I am the sum total of everyone I’ve ever met.” I really like that line, and I hope he has another chance to speak come Oscar night.

Jonah Hill puts a bear head on and Channing Tatum laughs like a school girl

The bartender at the Globes was over pouring and I LOVED it. It seemed like everyone who went to the mic was hammered off their ass. When Channing went up and introduced the Bear from The Revenant I knew exactly who would be lumbering on stage, Jonah “fluctuating weight” Hill. He did a hilarious little bit from the perspective of a bear on a big Hollywood set. The banter was funny, but was was even funnier was Channing laughing hysterically behind him. Its like he slipped a little bit of the drug from 21 Jump Street before going on stage.

I love that Jonah and Channing are best friends. If Ryan and I had the opportunity to get on stage during the Golden Globes I feel this is exactly what would happen. Moments later Ryan would be singing ‘Fast Car” and I would be screaming into the mic looking for Bill Paxton. That’s when we get banned from every hollywood event for the rest of our lives. Until that moment comes we will have to live vicariously through Jonah and Channing.

Channing Tatum’s Daughters Poop Face Reminds Him Of Marlon Brando’s Death In ‘The Godfather’

I was thinking about adding a spoiler alert to this post just in case people haven’t seen The Godfather, but the movie came out 43 years ago and if you haven’t seen it that’s your problem. Now, onto the poop discussion. Weirdly enough this is the second post that we’ve had today that deals with poop, but luckily this one doesn’t include an Instagram commenter telling an 18 year old he wants her to use his face as a toilet. I don’t think people realize how lucky our generation is as far as late night TV hosts. Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Letterman, Conan; you can turn on four or five different channels after 1130 and get some quality late night TV. While Kimmel isn’t my favorite late night host (Conan, always and forever) he is usually pretty great with his guests. Enter professional charmer Channing Tatum, who has a little one on one talk with Kimmel about his daughters poop face, which just so happens to look like Marlon Brando dying in The Godfather. Late night TV at it’s finest.
