Despite my love of pop culture, I generally don't watch "awards" shows such as the Emmys or the Academy Awards, and since the last movie I saw in the theater was "The Return of the King," I was especially unmotivated to watch the Golden Globes last night. Apparently they are often a predictor of the Oscars, but this year there's no clear "big" winner.
Meanwhile, Prof. Althouse, who simul-blogged the whole thing, has this to say about William Shatner's win for Best Supporting Actor (on a drama series):
Shatner is bright red, as if he might have a heart attack and die while finally getting his recognition. "Wanna thank the wife ... Let's see ... Leslie, Liz, and Melanie ... Shelley, Kelly, and Donna ..." Chris says: "This is the most boring speech." But there was a moment there, when he first gripped his hand around the award and looked at it and said "William Shatner" that was kind of cool and touching.
I'm not sure if Prof. Althouse watches "Boston Legal" (I would guess not, but you never know), but I'm pretty sure that saying "William Shatner" is a riff on his call-sign from that show, where his character goes around saying his name ("Denny Crane") all the time.
