Usually almost everything ends up on Youtube... so lets hope! I was honestly a bit shocked to find out they were showing it here, even if it's a few days later. But I can live with that!

Yes parts of it, but I want to see the whole show.

Re: Golden Globes 2015

It really would! I remember watching the Oscars live last year... oh gosh! And he wasn't even nominated. 
What wasn't fun though was having to be at the jobcenter all day with 30 minutes of sleep and hopped up on energy drinks! 
(to find out I didn't have to show up that day...)

I actually just went shopping for watching this on Tuesday... got myself some nice snacks and pink lemonade to have in a neat glass. 
Ah, the life of a fangirl!

Re: Golden Globes 2015

Well I used to recorded it (so I could watch it fast forward mode for the boring parts http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
) but since it is not any longer on FreeTV in Germany.

Re: Golden Globes 2015

I'm watching the NBC Golden Globes preview show, and although they had an interview with Benedict they never got to ask him about Sophie or the Cumberbaby or even what he was wearing--Matt Lauer asked him about Turing and Benedict used up his whole segment and then some. Ha!

Re: Golden Globes 2015

Ah, well. Benedict did not win, nor did the film pick up any other awards (unless I missed something, which is always possible). But Sophie looked lovely, and Benedict had one of the funniest moments of the night: See the video at Time Magazine.

Re: Golden Globes 2015

Also loved presenter Colin Firth's comment about Benedict.

 And (although staged) the end of the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler opening monologue,   where they ask
for a volunteer  from the audience via a show of hands to co-present the first award of the evening
with Jennifer Anisten-,   they point to the Ben/Sophie/Imitation Game table and call out 'Cumberbatch!'

Also good to see the 'Fargo' wins for best series and BB Thornton,  though too bad nominee Martin wasn't with that group to celebrate.

He lost against Eddie Redmayne, I can live with that. (Although he was also a brilliant Stephen Hawking!)

Re: Golden Globes 2015

Well, I cannot http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png
.
I mean, of course ER is a brilliant actor and he is very good as Hawking, but the film itself is just bleh. The only thing critics are able to gush about is how well R. imitates the real Hawking. But I am also very disappointing for the score and the screenplay - TIG definitely deserved those. But then they also awarded AA for the second year in row - and for Big Eyes which is the most flat and boring film Tim Burton ever made.

Re: Golden Globes 2015

It is a pity that Benedict hadn't won, but the Globe for Eddie Redmayne is very deserved as he did a stunning performance in Theory of Everything (though the film itself was a bit boring IMO).
I haven't seen Boyhood yet but the critics were almost exceptionless positive and it is a fascinating project, so I suppose the Globes are very well earned as well.
I am happy that Billy Bob Thornton won. I loved his performance in Fargo. Pity that he and Martin were both nominated in the same categorie.

By the way, did you noticed how shy Benedict looked when Gwyneth Paltrow read the nominees and his name was mentioned? That was rather cute

Re: Golden Globes 2015

Tbh, I am a bit disappointed. Five nominations and not a single award. I do not want to lessen Eddie Redmayne's performance but they went for the more obvious choice and a film about someone who is well-known and firmly established in people's minds. Someone who is still alive and can be observed and maybe even interviewed by the actor while Benedict had only hearsay and pictures to go and yet managed to make Turing come to life. 
It is always difficult to compare performances but if you set Benedict's Turing off against, say, Colin Firth's King George which won him no less than seven major awards … well. 

And congrats to BB Thornton, I was stunned by his performance in "Fargo". Sorry, Martin. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Btw - Martin was not there, was he?

Oh yes, Susi, I feel the same. Seems to me that they only honoured the more physical performance. Eddie Redmayne certainly did a very good job, but ...
Compared to the performance of Colin Firth ... I can't see what made him better than Benedict this time.

Re: Golden Globes 2015

Well, I definitely agree with what was said about the score and the screenplay. Especially when it comes to the score... when I watched "The Theory of Everything" and then later listened to the score again, I was just bored out of my mind. I think it's a very conventional score and you could use that music for almost every other period drama like "Sense & Sensibility" and the like. Really not very inventive, if you ask me. But then Desplat wasn't even nominated for a BAFTA recently, so that really makes you think anyway...
Can't say anything about the screenplay really, because I haven't seen "Birdman" yet. But I suspect it might be deserved. Although I agree that TIG's screenplay is quite a masterpiece. How those three different times of Alan's life are interwoven is just brilliant.

As for Benedict and Eddie... let's just hope that Benedict knows exactly what such awards actually mean and how much they are worth and how much they're saying about the quality of your work. Next to nothing, if you ask me. Of course I would have been thrilled for him if he'd won, and it's always fun to watch award shows and to have someone to root for. But I have to admit that I almost anticipated Eddie and Michael Keaton to get a GG. Eddie, because his performance is very physical and very in-your-face (and I don't mean this in a negative way, believe me) and just hard to ignore. You'd have to be blind to miss how good he is - and yes, I really think he is good. And that makes him the obvious choice, at least in the Hollywood universe. And Michael Keaton is someone the audience and the critics just have to love, especially in the US, I think. Because this role is a huge comeback for him, and from what I've seen he seems to be fantastic in that role - a role which also seems to be more spectacular than Benedict's Alan. You have to look a bit closer to realise what Benedict has achieved in TIG... and I think for some people that's just too much effort.

Re: Golden Globes 2015

I think Ben is genuinely for Eddie, when you watch interviews with them they always praise each other.

But of course it's sad that TIG won nothing. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

This Thursday the Oscar nominations will be announced. We will see.

@Solar: I agree, Michael Keaton is one of these comeback actors (nothing against him or Birdman) like Jeff Bridges some years ago.

Aw, lovely pics of him with the champagne. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png


Isn't usually a thing that the winners of Golden Globe will usually win Oscars? So if TIG won nothing at GG, they probably won't win anything at Oscar's either?
