It’s the happiest time of my year. Gowns, lights, upsets, heinous acceptance speeches – I am just jubilant!

Things I loved about tonight’s Golden Globes: Tina & Amy – duh. Jennifer Aniston’s legs – kill me. Bill Cosby roasting. J’lo’s globes. Prince. Kevin Spacey – I’m not single, but I might love you? Every time the camera panned to John Krasinski. George Clooney – what smooth planet did you come from?

Things I did not love: Jane the Virgin winning – what are you & where did you come from? Amy Adams – you’re so overrated it physically hurts me sometimes. Every time the camera panned to Claire Danes. Not seeing Leo.
