I think I'm going to get sick of the Modern Family theme before this night is done.

That whole presentation for lead actress in a comedy was hilarious. Love Amy Poehler.

Charlie Sheen looked fucked up. And that was a weird and phoney best wishes to the "Two and a Half Men".

I'm actually fine with that since there's no supporting category at the Golden Globes, so that's probably all the love she'll get for giving the best comedic performance in a movie this year. And it's kind of like a little love for the Gilmore Girls as well.

MM is actually really talented. It's not her fault that people love shows like Two and Half Men and Mike & Molly.

Colbert (and staff) has been deserving to win that award for several years now.

For goodness sake it is time to stopping having some hack read off some inane comment, (I'm not going to call them quips because they are not or funny cleaver) as the winner walks to the stage.

It didn't work the two years the Oscars had the guy from the Apple commercials and it is not working tonight.

Hell yes! Congrats to Jason Katims for Friday Night Lights. Now let's get one for Kyle Chandler or Connie Britton.

I love FNL, but "The Suitcase" was fantastic

Good for Margo
