Golden Globes 2013: Girls Rule

Posted by David Schmader on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 9:45 AM

Last night! Golden Globes! Full list of winners here! Of particular interest:

*The triumph of Lena Dunham, who won Best Actress in a TV Comedy and Best Comedy Series for her brilliant Girls. Here's her speech after winning Best Actress (beating both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, while wearing shoes that seemingly render her unable to walk normally).

*The beguiling speech given by Jodie Foster, who won the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and addressed her lifetime of previously unaddressed lesbianism with a sly speech that was perfectly in-tune with her aggressively private self (if too opaque for some).

Jodie Foster has given a couple of cinema performances that rank with the all-time greats—but she seems like a real weird lady. Still, good for her, and a million props for her exemplary handling of her ex.

(As for what last night portends for the upcoming Oscars: Jessica Chastain won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama while Jennifer Lawrence won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical, so either it'll be one or the other, or they'll split the vote and Amour's Emmanuelle Riva will triumph.)
