Quoting the Globes

Pergelaran The 67th Annual Golden Globe akhirnya selesai. Sebagai salah satu ajang yang dinilai dapat dijadikan parameter untuk melihat bagaimana susunan nominasi dan pemenang Academy Awards, tentu kemenangan Avatar akan dinilai sebagai salah satu poin yang dapat juga memperbesar peluang kemenangan Avatar di ajang film terbesar itu.

Terlepas dari seluruh pengaruh Golden Globe kepada susunan nominasi Academy Awards yang akan diumumkan pada 2 Februari 2010 mendatang, saya mengumpulkan beberapa quote yang datang dari para hadirin yang menghadiri The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Kutipan-kutipan kalimat yang beberapa terdengar menarik, lucu bahkan mungkin menyentuh dan romantis.

Berikut beberapa diantaranya:

“It’s nice to have a justifiable excuse for accessorizing.” — Dexter star Michael C. Hall, whose cancer is in remission, joking backstage about wearing a black headdress.


“If you want attention, just sit next to Paul McCartney. I’ve never had so many texts in my life.” — Julia Roberts, who presented the award for best drama.


“I just want to thank my mom, who supported my decision to become a director when she realized I wasn’t as smart as my two sisters.” — The Hangover director Todd Phillips, after accepting a best comedy award.


“This is for anybody and everybody who got a wedgie in high school.” — Glee creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy, accepting the Golden Globe for best series, musical or comedy.


“I make movies where people’s faces melt and their skin rots off, so I feel right at home in this.” — Actor-director Eli Roth on the chaotic, rain-soaked red carpet.


“People like how I write women. I could never write women if it wasn’t for my wife. You are the fuel to my creative fire, Michele. I love you, thank you.” — Writer and director Jason Reitman, accepting a screenplay award for his film, Up in the Air.


“I am really honestly conflicted about how to have my ‘happy movie self’ in the face of everything that I’m aware of in the real world. And I want to say that that’s when I have my mother’s voice coming to me, saying, ‘Partners in Health, shoot some money to Partners in Health, put the dress on, put on a smile and be damn grateful that you have the dollars to help.'” — Meryl Streep, accepting her award for best actress, musical or comedy, for Julie & Julia.


“First, let me say, `Thank you, God, for this amazing ride that you’re allowing me to go on.'” — Mo’Nique, accepting her award for best supporting actress in a motion picture, for Precious.


“Our inspiration was all around us: our grandparents, our parents, our wives, our kids, our talking dogs. You guys are not only the source of our greatest material, but you’re also the source of our joy and really give meaning to our lives.” — Writer and director Peter Doctor, accepting the award for best animated film for Up.


“I’ve had the most wonderful time creeping out the entire country for the last six months.” — John Lithgow, accepting his award for best supporting actor in a series, miniseries or movie, in Dexter.


“I like a drink as much as the next man – unless the next man is Mel Gibson.”  – Golden Globe host Ricky Gervais, referencing Gibson’s 2006 DUI arrest, before the actor took the stage to present a clip from Inglourious Basterds.


“Let’s get on with it, before NBC replaces me with Jay Leno.” — Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais, closing out his opening monologue.
