Recapping the Golden Globes

Did you watch the Golden Globes on Sunday night? My favorite part of the night (other than this Benedict Cumberbatch photobomb) was the photo booth set up behind the scenes to capture stars, fresh off the stage. Each photo was live ‘grammed—and I loved it! I’m now using this Instagram account as a virtual reminder of all the films and TV shows I still need to watch…and the ones I want to watch again.

Boyhood won big! Best drama, best director and best supporting actress. So well-deserved! This film was my favorite of the year (St. Vincent and Birdman were a very close second). I still can’t get over the effortless way that director Richard Linklater captured time. And I loved Patricia Arquette’s acceptance speech.

Jane the Virgin and Downton Abbey: Two shows I have to play catch-up on. I’ve heard such amazing reviews from friends about Gina Rodriguez and Jane, but I haven’t started the series yet. And between The Comeback, Homeland, and Transparent, I’m just plain behind on Downton. No excuse!

I saw the lovely Amy Adams (and, for that matter, Christophe Waltz) knock it out of the park in Big Eyes. And Birdman—what a creative film! Plus, it doesn’t get any better than Michael Keaton’s acceptance speech!

Last: I was happy to see the cast of The Affair take home the award for best drama. The show filmed all summer in front of my apartment—and I watched every episode in real time (no DVR!) this fall. The show is that good.
