Golden Globes 2013: Tina Fey's Magic, Amy Poehler's Glamor, and the Inward Outing of Jodie Foster

It's only January 14, but I guarantee that the 2013 Golden Globes will be the best awards show of the entire year. Why? Because the Golden Globes are gloriously useless, and its attendees are aware of that fact. That's why everyone onscreen appears to be having a great, fun time filled with unrehearsed moments. The Golden Globes combine the gaudiness of "Night of 100 Stars" with the hilarious posturing of a student council election. Frankly, we should call them the Pia Zadora's Choice Awards. Respect. Or don't! Both options are completely acceptable and fun.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were your ravishing emcees, and I'd hate to regurgitate what everyone has said (and has been saying) about these deeply, heroically funny women, but whatever: They were flawless. Sharp, gentle, biting, and irreverent, and always at surprising moments. I slapped the wall during the opening monologue (duologue?) when Tina said that Ricky Gervais

The 25 Most Random Celebrities At The Same Party Ever

Norby Walters is not necessarily someone I would want to be friends with. For starters, he’s a sports agent. Despite my raging “Plantar fasciitis,” I am no athlete. Back in 1988, Norby was convicted of fraud and racketeering after he signed college players to professional sports teams before it was legally allowed. Despite my penchant for Scorcese crime flicks and a dude I once made out with who just got out of Rikers, I don’t often associate with criminals. He also kind of looks like my cousin Edith who passed away years ago. I loved Edith but there’s only room for one in my heart. And yet, taking allll of these things into consideration, my mind is made up: I want to be friends with Norby Walters. Why, you ask? Simple. Judging by the characters who attended his 22nd Annual Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Viewing Party, he

Mondays tend to suck. Let’s see what I can do to make yours a bit better with a flurry of scoops, teases and sound bites from some of TV’s hottest shows and stars.

A Kiss Is Just a Kiss…? | Apparently there is no such thing as a run-of-the-mill episode of CBS’ The Good Wife, because this Tuesday’s hour raised my eyebrow at least twice. For the case of the week, you have Ken Leung delivering a nicely understated performance that’s a far cry from Lost’s Miles, plus there’s a nifty callback to a previous episode.

MacGraw's Ego Took A Huge Hit At Charity Gala

MacGraw's Ego Took A Huge Hit At Charity Gala
One-time Hollywood 'It Girl' Ali MacGraw realised she was no longer considered a Tinseltown beauty when she was handed a hideous gown and placed at the back of a line for a TV gala.

The Love Story star's ego took a hit when she showed up for a 1980s The Night of 100 Stars gala and realised she was no longer in the same category as the actresses of the day.

She recalls, "Everybody you ever heard of (was there). They featured people we know and love - Linda Evans, Joan Collins, Angie Dickinson... and we were given dresses to wear and we were given ways of walking out.

"At the point I was given the worst dress and I was, like, number 299 walking across Radio City (Music Hall) I got it... I felt like a loser."

And MacGraw admits she started to think she was less than she had been when she was one of Hollywood's most in-demand stars a decade before.

She adds, "The ego is such a trick, I just lost myself in that moment of 'What do they think...?' Nobody was counting off the people. It was very self-centred.

"So I got really loaded that night and woke up next to somebody I hadn't planned to spend the night with... It was total ego."

Shortly after that moment, the actress retreated from Hollywood and set up home in New Mexico.

Did Academy Actors' Branch Rage Against the Avatar Machine?

Did Academy Actors' Branch Rage Against the Avatar Machine?
Yes, another Oscar story, but you'll like this one! I promise. Guru-ish awards reporter Pete Hammond viewed Sunday's Oscarcast at the "Night of 100 Stars" Party -- which usually turns out more like the "Night of 12 Stars, 58 Character Actors, 17 Has-Beens, 12 People You Secretly Expected to See in the 'In Memoriam' Montage, and Pete Hammond" Party, except this year there was news. And it may be the Rosetta Stone to help decode where Avatar went wrong on its march to Best Picture.
