Fair enough, we guess. It must have been a tough and fun character to play, in any case.
She's talking about struggling to get her look right. Yeah right!
No, he didn't say that, but he did joke that Amy Poehler has a very bad drinking problem.
She's got a great shot at winning Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical; if you saw her acceptance speech at the Palm Springs Film Fest last week, know she'll give a great address if she does indeed win it.
She's talking about how lucky she was to be friends with Tate Taylor, the film's director.
Best friends Brad Pitt ("Moneyball") and George Clooney ("The Descendants") lead the pack vying for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama; Leonardo Di Caprio ("J. Edgar") is also nominated, to help make it an absolutely star-studded category. Meanwhile, a silent film ("The Artist") looks to fend off a Woody Allen hit ("Midnight in Paris") and a movie that features women passing their bowels in the street ("Bridesmaids") in the Best Motion Picture Comedy or Drama category.
The brilliant Octavia Spencer, who played an domestic servant, and the breakout darling Jessica Chastain, who played her generous employer, are both up for Best Supporting Actress for their work in "The Help." Meanwhile, their co-star Viola Davis hopes to pip Meryl Streep, who played controversial British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." And then there's the comedy category, where Michelle Williams hopes to win an award for her own iconic impersonation, having played Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn."
One of the usual suspects for Best TV Series Drama, "Mad Men" is out this year, opening up the opportunity for HBO to take back the throne, with either "Boardwalk Empire" or "Game of Thrones." And "Modern Family" hopes to defend its crown in the comedy category, though "Louie" is the underground choice.
He continued, "The Golden Globes are just like the Oscars, but without all that esteem. The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton....A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker. And more easily bought. Allegedly, nothing’s been proved."
"I was just standing there waiting to come up here," Hyland told E!'s Giuliana Rancic, "and I just felt an explosion in my back. And I felt my dress start to slip, and I grabbed it before it was too late. I’m now sewn in my dress."
"I can’t diet if I’m really working out seriously," Vergara laughed, showing off her hard-earned "guns."
As for how she chose her dress, she has a special place in her heart for Vera Wang, because the designer sends her gowns that "zip and close." Ha!
What do you think of Vergara's gown?
Film critic Grae Drake is putting her money on Clooney's "Descendants" walking away with the win in the best dramatic motion picture category, but notes there's stiff competition in that one.
Gitesh Pandya of BoxOfficeGuru.com agrees, saying that Clooney is his choice for best dramatic actor, while he thinks Meryl Streep will nab the best actress in a dramatic motion picture honor.

Here's what a few of the stars had to say: FULL POST
“The Artist” follows a silent film actor, George Valentin (Jean Dujardin), from the peak of his success in 1927 to his sudden fall to oblivion with the arrival of the talkies and the rise of his young co-star and eventual love interest, Miller.

"There were many pros and cons," he says of mulling over the job offer. "I loved [hosting], but I was worried that I couldn't improve on last year."
This isn't surprising, since we've been playing "will he or won't he return" more or less since January, when Gervais' barbed jokes had many asking if he'd gone too far.
The organization said in a statement in January that the "HFPA would never condone some of his personal remarks," although they did add, "We loved the show. It was a lot of fun and obviously has a lot of people talking. When you hire a comedian like Ricky Gervais, one expects in your face, sometimes outrageous material."
