1. The Brits are (really) taking over. We are in the middle of another British invasion; did you know? If you’re like me, you noted just how much the Brits are dominating American television, movies, and music, sometimes without us even being really aware (the buggers can do great American accents). From 2013 Golden Globe winners Damien Lewis of Homeland (a show that has a number of British actors playing American) to Daniel Day-Lewis (who is known to take on American historical figures a time or two), they are proving to be a force in Hollywood (and I’m loving it). Let’s not forget GG winner Adele (for the Bond song “Skyfall”) and nominees Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Judi Dench, Clive Owen, Maggie Smith, and others.
2. The duo of Wiig and Ferrell would make awesome 2014 award show hosts. Oh, yeah, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a great job hosting the Golden Globes but they weren’t the best duo on stage. That prize went to Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell who showed up to present the award to the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy (asking as though they had never been anywhere fancy before). They were determined to prove they had seen all of the nominated performances (they had not) by recapping what the movies were about. You can only imagine what can next. Hopefully the organizers noted this award show standout moment: Wiig and Ferrell ‘14.
