Ah, live television. From awkward cutaways and moments of silence when the mics cut off, "The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards" certainly had plenty of strange and memorable moments. Some of the presenters' jokes fell flat, like Sacha Baron Cohen saying he wasn't referring to an Anne Hathaway upskirt shot when he was "pulling back the curtains of Hollywood." Other moments just didn't make any sense at all.
Was Glenn Close in on the bit where Tina Fey said, "Look how drunk Glenn Close is?" and then the camera cut to her? She's a consummate actress, and she was dancing and convulsing strangely. Aziz Ansari got Lena Dunham's name wrong, though he was pretending to be high as a kite at the time, so it may have been on purpose -- but it was still awkward. And then there was Claire Danes saying she hoped she wouldn't leak during the night -- she just had a baby a month ago and is still breast-feeding.
But the weirdest moment of the night came during the presentation of the Cecil B. DeMille award to Jodie Foster -- and we're not referring to Foster's rambling, yet heartfelt speech. While introducing her, Robert Downey Jr. started talking about hamsters as a lifelong goal that he and Foster shared. He then said that he and Mel Gibson both got theirs, and they wanted to offer her the "pick of the litter."
Gibson then opened a silver covered plate to reveal two stuffed hamsters and Foster mimed biting one of them. The room seemed just as confused, and there was an awkward silence. Luckily, Downey quickly segued into a montage of Foster's cinematic career.
