Golden Globes 2013:
Confessions, Glamour
and Fey&Poehler

Golden Globe 2013 winners, Adele’s speech and Jodie Foster’s coming out

The 70th edition of the annual Golden Globes sure was one to remember; it was all about confessions, the dresses, funny femmes and scores.

It’s awards season again and the Golden Globes kicked the New Year off in style. Familiar faces were paired with surprise appearances but all were supportive and respectful of each other’s career… with the exception of Adele who, when giving her award acceptance speech, informed the Hollywood world that she was sat her table pissing herself with laughter. I suppose it’s not everyday that the superstar-come-new-mother shares an audience with some of the cinema world’s most respected actors. I guess one would feel rather out of their comfort zone and nervous laughter might prevail. Either way, Adele was looking lovely and her speech seemed to be a crowd pleaser.

The real winner of the show was Jodie Foster, who collected the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award for her 47year strong career and gave an acceptance speech to remember. Clearly nervous, she sped through the thanks that she wanted to honour those she has worked with, taking a moment to address her sexuality for the first time, head on. Though her sexuality has never been a secret, it has never been confirmed to the masses, something that Foster highlighted stating ironically that:

‘Now I'm told, apparently that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show.’

Commenting on privacy, she said:

‘If you had been a public figure since the time you were a toddler, if you had to fight for a life that felt real and honest and normal against all odds, then maybe you too would value privacy above all else.’

Well said, Jodie Foster.


Other highlights were the winners, of course (which you can see in full after the jump), which saw Ben Affleck picking up two for his film, Argo. Les Miserables picked up 3 gongs, including Hugh Jackman picking one up for Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy. The hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, were spot on, bringing their real life friendship to the awards, letting their witty and natural banter entertain those that looked on. If you’ve got 8-minutes to spare, check out their monologue below:


You have to admit that these ladies really showed to those who have done this gig before just how it is done and that how comedy can still be dealt with class.
