1. Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it) - “So then they go to this planet full of brown muppets, oh what are they called? Ewoks? Oh right…”
The annual Golden Globe Awards were held last night in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Golden Globes are usually worth watching, mainly because they’re a good predictor of the Oscars, and they’re the only awards show with an open bar. Alcohol + actors = unpredictable speeches! If you missed the Globes or live on the West Coast and watched a censored version, here are this year’s 5 top Golden Globe moments!

1. SNL Digital Short - “J*** In My Pants” - Watch out for the Justin Timberlake cameo!
Movie awards season continues this morning with the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations. The 5 nominees for Best Picture Drama are: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost / Nixon, The Reader, Revolutionary Road and Slumdog Millionaire. Slumdog Millionaire was directed by Danny Boyle and is the only nominee without any recognizable movie stars. Boyle made the film for only $15M and also received a Best Director nomination. The Globes are generally a good predictor of the Oscars and it’s looking like this word-of-mouth movie will continue to do well. Boyle has long made uniquely creative movies with small budgets–let’s take a look back at his top 5 films before I see Slumdog Millionaire tonight!

Guys and girls alike love the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show! It’s fun to catch up with all of the supermodels–Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, Karolina Kurkova, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio–and see these glamour giraffes sashaying down the runway. My only complaint is that Victoria’s Secret should put the free full episode online and show pop-ups on the video giving viewers the option to buy. If you missed last night’s show, here are some highlights after the jump…
