Idris Golden Globes

Congrats to Idris Elba and Octavia Spencer for their Golden Globe wins last night, as I'm sure everyone's heard by now.

I should've announced yesterday that I was going to live-tweet the event, which I did, so those who weren't on Twitter last night, or who were and don't follow S&A, you missed me. Sorry; maybe next year; the Oscars are coming up, which I do plan to live-tweet as well, so mark your calendars now :)

You can always go look at the S&A Twitter stream HERE to see the 80 or so tweets I posted during the live event.

One other highight of the night was Meryl Streep giving a shout to Adepero Oduye during her Best Actress Motion Picture Drama acceptance speech, which she actually seemed to be surprised by, like she didn't expect to win (after Octavia Spencer's win for Best Supporting Actress Motion Picture Drama, I figured Viola Davis was a shoe-in for Best Actress; didn't happen); Meryl gave props to both Viola and Adepero, although she messed up her last name; but it was still an unexpected suprise, and a welcomed one!

Also, of course the Morgan Freeman Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Sidney Poitier and Helen Mirren, which was nice. As I noted on Twitter, I was surprised to find out that Poitier and Freeman have never appeared in a movie together before.

And I gotta say, I don't know if anyone else noticed, but when Idris was announced as winner of the Best Performance By An Actor In A Mini-Series Or Motion Picture Made For Television, when the camera panned the others in the room, many of them looked as if they didn't know who the hell he was; they had this empty gazes on their faces.

I'd also say that a large chunk of America probably heard his name and saw his face for the very first time last night.

Regardless, congrats Mr Elba! Let's hope this win helps boost his Stateside profile.

Also congrats to Octavia Spencer.

And congrats to all the other winners of the night; now we look towards the most significant of them all, the Oscars, next month. I believe the nominees will be announced this week.

I'll say this as well, given that Viola didn't win for Best Actress, it makes for an interesting Oscar race in that category. I think she's pretty much been the favorite, but with Meryl winning last night, it shakes things up a bit.
