In case you missed it, here’s a look at the 2014 Golden Globes opening monologue by hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. See who they lay into, watch the ‘dramatic’ Scandal (The Fixer) intro and see what they have to say about George Clooney. Hilarious, brilliant. Love these two.
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. Contrary to the SAG nominations yesterday, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom has scored a couple of Golden Globe nods. I’m shocked that Naomi Harris hasn’t been nominated for her role in the movie. She was outstanding, convincing and I’m quite disappointed actually. At least Idris Elba has been nominated for his role in the film 😉 Big up to Lupita Nyong’o, who has once again been nominated for her role in 12 Years A Slave.
On the TV front, firm favourites Big Bang Theory, Modern Family are up for awards in the comedy section. Best Performance by an Actress in TV Drama nominees include: Julianna Margulies, Tatiana Maslany, Taylor Schilling, Kerry Washington, & Robin Wright.

Katy Perry is one of the biggest names in the world of entertainment at the moment. Her new album, Teenage Dream has hit the top of the charts around the world; she’s happily engaged and well things just couldn’t be better for her. Last week however, was a little different for the star. TV execs pulled her appearance off the linear broadcast of 41st season of Sesame Street, after their web preview sparked a massive outrage from parents of the young viewers- some even went as far as to ‘rename’ the show to “sex-with-me Street” Urgh! The issue was regarding the “inappropriate” outfit she wore during the reworked version of her song ‘Hot N Cold’.
