    Here’s an excellent analysis of Jodie Foster’s speech as a rhetorical piece. http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/movies/the-genius-of-jodie-fosters-golden-globes-speech-20130115-2cqnn.html

  2. Huge fan of Anne Hathaway’s performance but goodness, how irritating is her “omg did I really win?” act? Lady, you have won everything under the sun. Just please stop with the fake modesty. You earned the award so act like it.

    heh-heh, alan of montreal — that’s the very same analysis I found at the Guardian UK, I linked in the comments 45 minutes ago in Sasha’s “Tragic and Sublime” post. That’s ok. Worth linking twice from two pages.

    [I need to quote it again following my another recent comment because I love it.] = Amy Poehler: “Meryl Streep is not here tonight. She has a flu. And I hear she’s amaaazing in it!”

    ^Word.

    I’ll go with my instinct and praise Ben Affleck upon stage for seemingly sincerely going out of his way to recognize some talented peer group members including PTA, who was not nominated, et al. I am Hoping the GG BD trophy gives him some solace following the so-called BP snub in the other race. (As we know he’s very likeable a la Ang Lee more or less in the industry, so I don’t believe in the snubbing-in-intent conspiracy.)

    Jessica Chastain is incredibly talented. Looking forward to more from her.

    And congrats to Jennifer Lawrence; hoping the “I beat Meryl” joke wouldn’t do her any damage nigh the Oscar [They gasped….].

    Amazing performances by Anne Hathaway in Les Mis; loved those painful facial expressions at close-up.

    Etc.

  5. Luke, to be fair, Anne Hathaway is not a lock to win. Keep in mind, people love Sally Field, and she can come from behind and win the Oscar. Amy Adams has been nominated many times with no win, and she could easily win. In this case, I will give Hathaway the benefit of the doubt.

  6. @Japanese Viewer: Lawrence’s “I beat Meryl is what it says” joke is a line from The First Wives Club. In the movie Bette Midler’s character tells Goldie Hawn’s character, “Once you were a terrific actress. You even got an Oscar to prove it.” Midler points to the trophy and says to Goldie Hawn, ‘I beat Meryl.’ That’s what it says.” It’s funny that most of the Hollywood crowd who claim to watch all these movies didn’t pick up on the famous reference. Lawrence also reference lines from Mean Girls from time to time. Meryl Streep is the goddess of acting we all bow to her.

    >>>>@Ryan, my sister emailed me the Guardian piece analyzing Jodie Foster’s speech this morning it was so genius and completely unrehearsed. Makes you want to hug her tight. That’s how you give a spontaneous but heartfelt speech that moves people. Anne Hathaway doesn’t understand that we can tell right away her speeches are rehearsed and calculated to the bone. Sally Field wasn’t buying her faux modesty and neither are we.

    >>>Watching the Jessica Chastain speech again I’m starting to really believe she had some traumatic times in Hollywood (maybe not as tough as Naomi Watts but not easy as her breakthrough makes it seem). She still refers to herself as a struggling actress in some video interviews. I like the shout-out to Bigelow about improving gender roles. You can tell she still feels uncomfortable having her gender awknowledged but trying to pretend that her gender is not significant is kind of silly in it’s own way.

    Jerry,

    Thank you for the mild reminder.

    Now that you’ve mentioned it, I recall that moment (I watched the movie as well). To be honest [not giving you some sort of challenge], […] still not sure if Lawrence literally took it from that flick, or in the nick of time commendably from her own spontaneity – her timing was nigh perfect [kudos] and she sort of did it well in her own (not really) awkward way.

    She’s so natural when it comes to making a joke out of the blue; another quote: “*Critics are not that bad”: made while receiving one of the two Critics Choice awards she’s garnered. […] need to see it to appreciate *the otherwise bland simple sentence. Perfect timing….

    Side note: Love Bette Midler; For the Boy, one of my favs. : )

  8. It doesn’t matter what Anne Hathaway says or do, people will always find reasons to say crap things about her lol

    @The Japanese Viewer (myself)

    “Side note: Love Bette Midler; For the Boy, one of my favs. : )”

    Shame on you, The Japanese Viewer, you’ve said For the Boy [sic] is one of your favs, but you couldn’t even remember its title correctly…………? [For the Boys] : )

    Terry, I agree. Poor Hathaway will always be bashed, because this lady is young, successful, too smart, immensely talented, very well-spoken, and keeps out of trouble. Whenever she is articulate, she is labeled a show-off and full of herself. When she is complimentary, Hathaway is perceived as a fake. Whenever Anne is humble, she is not genuine. If you notice, only young celebrity females have to deal with this madness. Not the Chris Brown’ and Mel Gibson’s of the world.

  11. I want Sally Field to win, but I love Hathaway…have ever since the Princess movies..I think her shout-out to Sally was sincere. Loved her Norma Rae reference…because there may be an entire generation who think Sally Gield is that old lady in the Boniva commercials… And it was a great reminder Norma Rae’s iconic status. But I
    just can’t see a one-song appearance winning the big prize.
    This is not her year. But if she ever gets around to that Judy Garland pic….
    I’ll probably be rooting for her.
    But not thus year.

  12. Come on, leave Anne Hathaway alone!
    I don’t think she deserves the Oscar and I blame Hooper’s ridiculous choices. And yes, I don’t think Field is deserving either.

    But no matter what – she’s simply not your speech giver. If she wants to act surprised, so be it. And Sally Field should be grateful for the way Hathaway mentioned her in her speech, because other than Streep who actually really pays attention to her major competition in such a way? No, they say they’re honored to be in their company and avoid mentioning anything else. They want Oscars!

    But anyway, I believe Hathaway is a lock. She’s young, she has the part, the momentum kept for a YEAR! Critics actually love her. She has the Globe and BFCA and will get SAG. Field won twice before and we all know that her second win isn’t really something the Academy is proud of.

    But in the end it doesn’t even matter.

  13. I love all 10 actresses nominated this year. But I’m also thinking that it is very possible, on Feb 24th, to see my two favorite American actresses going home with the Academy Award… WOW!

    Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway are so talented and smart they make good and brave choices and then translate these choices in unforgettable performances.

    The Tree of Life – The Help – Zero Dark Thirty – Take Shelter.

    Brokeback Mountain (the phone call with Ennis is an acting masterwork) – Rachel getting Married – The Dark knight Rises – Les Miserables.

    The two lady hosts, Tina & Amy, were spectacular. Perfect comic timing.

  15. JLaw said backstage at the press conference that her “I beat Meryl” line was a direct quote from the First Wives Club. I picked up on it right away seeing as it would be something I were to say if I ever win an award over Meryl Streep. HA!

  16. Honestly, it doesn’t matter what Anne Hathaway says or do. People will continuously say she sounds calculated, desperate, rehearsed, etc. If she were to get up there and act pretentious like, “Yea I totally deserved this” people would bitch and moan. It’s not Anne Hathaway’s fault that she’s an influential speaker!

  17. Anyways, I’m really excited that Anne Hathaway’s next project is to star in a new adaptation of “Taming Of The Shrew.” Hopefully, she’ll be nominated and win another Globe!
