Did you forget to watch the 2011 Golden Globes this evening? Well, aside from missing out on Ricky Gervais committing career hara kiri in front of an audience filled with Hollywood’s biggest power players, you missed a whole bunch of acceptance speeches with varying levels of grace and aplomb.
Before we get into the tonight’s full list of winners, we would be remiss if we didn’t call attention to Natalie Portman’s bizarre laugh. As TheFABLife buddy Molly Lambert over at This Recording noted on Twitter, Portman’s guttural guffaw sounded a lot like Charlene Yi in Knocked Up. Practice your laugh game before the Oscars, girl!
As the show closed, we made our way back to the Press Tent in hopes of catching another up close glimpse of Natalie Portman (who utterly transfixed us on the red carpet earlier, to the point where it wasn’t until after she left that we realized we were standing in a shallow pool of drool). As we waited around, we quickly realized that we were actually standing in the exact same place where every celebrity who attended stayed until the end of the show was getting picked up by their limos/Escalades/4-wheelers*. That’s when we saw…
The drop dead gorgeous Mila Kunis standing all by her lonesome, politely thumbing away on her BlackSwanBerry. Was she texting Macauley Culkin? Was she rearranging a reunion with Fez? Was she trying to send your @unclegrambo a DM? Sadly, we’ll never know, as we were far too nervous to actually talk to her and far too respectful of her personal space to peer over her shoulder.
As she was wrapping up her missive — yes, we were probably staring — our ears recognized a familiar, deep timbred voice. We broke our gaze, turned our head and thought to ourself, “Man, that guy looks a lot like Jon Hamm.” And guess what? It was! He and Kunis embraced on the carpet and we immediately began envisioning the future of what almost certainly would be the Best Looking Couple In The Universe™. Sadly, their conversation was interrupted by…
Adam Levine, the dashing frontman of Maroon 5, set the internets on fire last week when pictures of him posing totally nude (!) to raise awareness for prostate cancer were released. Well, our saucy VH1 News correspondent Janell Snowden caught up with Adam and Maroon 5 keyboardist Jesse Carmichael yesterday afternoon at the Hollywood Palladium, the site of tonight’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. And while we were chatting with tonight’s CCMA house band after rehearsals yesterday, Levine’s exhibitionist streak washed over him once again, as he spontaneously ripped off his clothes and landed nearly naked in Janell’s arms! Fortunately, we had cameras rolling and we’ve got video of this hilarious (and sexy) moment above.
As a reminder, the CCMAs are airing LIVE tonight on VH1 at 9/8c. There will also be a red carpet pre-show, which will also feature the sultry sounds of Maroon 5 and is hosted by MTV’s Tim Kash and our own LaLa Vasquez, starting at 8pm. We’ll also be giving you an insider’s view of today’s show rehearsals, all the red carpet festivities and what’s going on backstage at tonight’s 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards on Twitter, so be sure to follow @TheFABLife, @VH1 and @unclegrambo (that’s me!).
If you weren’t following our Twitter feeds yesterday, here’s a small sampling of some of the pics we snapped during yesterday’s rehearsals. More to follow all day today. Enjoy!
