pre golden globe jitters!

pre golden globe jitters!
January 15, 2006 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

oh my word! tomorrow night is finally here! the 63rd annual golden globes will take place in beverly hills at the hilton! this show also marks the beginning of awards season!

i always thought these globes to be kinda like the crappy version of the oscars but over the years i have truly come to love this often sassy show put on by the hollywood foreign press association – plus i really think the stars seem to seriously enjoy themselves since they can be seated at a roundtable with food & friends and more importantly drinks…which i am sure makes the time fly by faster than the boring drone the oscars have kinda come to represent – everyone overall seems to be just having fun and lavish gift baskets are always a blast too! the globes have also really become a fairly accurate litmus test for what films will indeed grab oscar gold! all my bets are still on brokeback mountain which i really do think will nab the oscar for best picture – it will for sure grab the globe tomorrow night – mark my words!

i also enjoy this awards show since they also honor TV which i tend to see a lot more of than films – although it is my new years resolution to watch more movies & finally catch-up with my netflix que (i caught the ring 2 last night – the first one was far superior…) anyways today was freezing in hollywood and quite windy – i was able to run a bunch of errands including a drop of shopping in santa monica and grabbing fresh oysters over in korea town – and now i am settling into a 2 hour extreme home makeover and trying to figure out what to post on my monday .mp3 tomorrow – which also happens to be my 30th birthday!

everyone keeps telling me your thirties are the best years of your life – so i am putting my best foot forward tomorrow and really looking forward to what lies ahead…looking back i can say my 20’s were a blast – especially during my wild & crazy NYC days – oh i do miss the east coast so much sometimes but i have settled in nicely to west coast living so i am looking to LA/california to bring on some kick-ass years and some rockin’ times for things here on popbytes – this boy is gonna work it! fuego i say! i’m outtie for now…much love to all as always – and oh yes i will be back tomorrow! xxoo
