(on the  Golden Globe Award Ceremony 2013)

I usually  judge the award ceremonies by the time elapsed  before I  want to leave the room or go to sleep.   In this case  I  wanted to leave the room several times until I heard that it was the 70th award and I decided to let it slide; they did their best for  such  age. But boy, was it boring. Come to think of it; it was quite understandable- there  were no real topics or real stories to pursue. CIA, CIA, HS,  Police,  old people,  the Hugo's novel transformed into opera with no professional singers and some scenes smelling of Oliver with  Alec Guinnes. This was a funny presentation where men resembled women and women resembled men: the two harpies on the scene could even tie themselves into knots if they wanted to; they still looked  in such a way that you could get an erectile dysfunction by just looking  at them;  but Hell, the other presenters  and/or winners were no better except maybe for Jody Foster.  When Sasha B. came out   I found myself preferring Nathan Fillion; that one at least is big.  And those boobs. Ladies, I understand that  it is easier to spend time in that dreary hall with no bra but please, have mercy.  If there is nothing to show, don't show it. The camera is merciless and  it reveals how gravity takes its toll.   It is good you don't show your navels anymore, so make the next step- dress appropriately for  your age. In  the movies you can do anything, even catch a Nazi doctor with your vagina, like dear Jessica C. did once, but  when we see you live- be good to us and don't make the  inconvenient truth (yes, we know that  most of you are rather ugly)  ruin the fun.  OK, there was no fun anyway, that's true.
Tina did not know what to say about torture, so she croaked a corny joke  about  marriage. It was her  usual style. The most ironic piece  of the show was that  the  award was given to the movie about no movie, which is symptomatic because what other fantastic stories you can get from CIA? At least Harrison Ford  just played Jack Ryan; Ben Affleck went further and  decided to t disseminate the illusion around the Globe (got a golden one, right?). Hey, we also had that Homeland thing which justifies the existence of the Homeland Security as soon as it employes the Claire Danes- kind of chicks who see everything even if there is nothing there. Or   we can follow the career of the vagina lady  Jessica with those vehement eyes and tough language,  a red- haired Valkyrie hunting ...  well we all know  that nothing like that really happened but  the effects...the effects. Nobody notices  cruelty and stupidity  as soon as Tina Fey takes care of it and champagne  sparkles in the glasses and on the floor.  There was only  one  really truthful phrase said on the that show:

-Y2012 was a great year for  animated movies.

Eat your checkers, folks.  I quote from Cyrano De Bergerac:

-They don't share our  fate but they surely can eat our share.

PS. I apologize to all who do  not agree with me. No malice, just sometimes  I can't stand it anymore. Too much of a bad taste. Too much. I felt myself becoming a Le Miserable.
