2014 Golden Globes - Spoilerific Live Blogging - All Invited
on Jan 13, 2014 at 12:24:35 am

It's 7:15 EST - I'm locked in a hotel room in Wyoming, MI, watching the Golden Globes, commercials and all, to the end.

Ok, I'll start, chime in if you want.

Note to readers - we will be discussing the winners as they win - do not read if you DVR the show.


Red Carpet - nice to see Matt Lauer and the Savamnah Guthrie decked out for Hollywood.

Michael Douglas in Behind the Candelabra was quite a performance, and Matt Damon made a very brave choice to be in that movie.

Lena Dunham should be an inspiration to women everywhere proving you can be successful even if you don't look like a model.

DiCaprio - he has really grown up.

I have not seen Wolf of Wall Street yet but I like it for best picture Comedy of Musical (why those two are paired up I don't know).

Jimmy Fallon "Chris Christie is directing traffic." - nice!

Let me back up - just before the Red Carpet show, the local news here in Western MI went to a live shot with probably a pool reporter for local NBC stations. I kid you not the reporter said "and here comes what looks like an actor from Captain Phillips" - she later identified the actor by name - pretty funny. But hey it's local news.

Ok back to the stars.

Kevin Bacon - how is his new show?

Ok, commercial break.

question to Robert Redford "is it true you have only attended this award show twice? Why?" Redford "you'll have to ask them." Nice.

...ho hum...dresses, hair, la dee da...

BTW Matt Lauer + beard + shades = not any Today Show host that I've ever seen.

Tom Hanks is cool.

Julia Roberts - still looking good (she has approximately 50% more teeth than most people).

Commercial - 20 minutes and counting.

Ok we're back...

Matt just told us about the exotic menu for this evening - oh how the stars suffer for their work.

Matt Damon. Just saw him in Promised Land. Co-written by Damon and John Krasinski and directed by Gus van Zant. Not quite Good Will Hunting, but kinda ok if you like that whole frakking is bad conspiracy theory idea.

Save the Cheerleader...Save the World. Anyone know how Heroes ended?

Hmm, kind of a boring segment - I guess most of the interesting people are inside opening their gift bags.

Here are the free gifts everyone gets:

Women’s
Dooney & Bourke Blair bag
It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe powder brush
Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina eau de parfum
Fekkai Classic Brush & Brilliant Glossing Cream
Rituals Skin Care Touch of Happiness body cream
SK-II facial treatment essence
L’Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara & Colour Riche Nail Collection Privée

Men’s
Travelpro garment bag
Ferragamo Acqua Essenziale fragrance
Le Creuset champagne bottle opener
Goldtoe boot socks
Bee Bald shave cream
Martial Vivot shampoo
Rituals Skin Care shower gel
Zirh face wash
DeVita eye crème
Braven speakers
Lug USA nap sack, blanket and toiletry bag
L’Oréal aftershave and anti-wrinkle cream

Yep, these folks really have a rough time of it.

By the way, the picture quality on the red carpet show is really nice. They must be shooting it in 4K (according to CES 4K is all that matters).

Cate Blanchett - Blue Jasmine was very good. Cate did a great job playing looney tunes. Woody Allen's movies sans-Woody Allen can be hit or miss but this was a good one.

Michael J Fox - he really is quite short. Looking well MJ

Ok the show starts now. If you haven't watched yet, stop reading.

I mean it.

Close your web browser.

Last warning.

....

caught you looking.

This is a great idea. It will limit my annoying tweeting to people who don't care.

I missed most of the red carpet but Matt Lauer is an old snooze so eh, oh well.

If you guys didn't know, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are my sisters and we have sleepovers all the time.

I don't really know who is nominated tonight, so I'll be yelling my picks at the TV.

1:30 and counting.

cue host banter

shut up Matt, take your seat

New Theme Song - better than the 80's theme they used to use - this sounds like early 90's.

Tina and Amy take the stage

Hey where's Ricky Gervais? Has it really been 2 years?

Tina Fey is channeling Sarah Palin.

Hey look, it's Bono!

Do they rehearse the jokes with the stars' reactions, or are these folks just really good?

Woody Allen attends an awards show..? I don't see him. He hates awards shows. I don't blame him.

Ok, George Clooney joke was good. First one.

Matthew McConaghay - I guess they wouldn't let him in the room without a shirt on!

Netflix get props - however they will surely be deleting more streaming movies as they get recognition for original shows. Orange is the New Black is quite good.

Ok - gotta have a yogurt. Someone else take over.

I've been eating food while watching the first chunk of the show, but here's my thoughts on what I remember.

"This is Hollywood, so we will keep doing the same things over and over again until everyone hates it." -great line.

Not sure the Captain Phillips dude fully understood the jokes about him and/or English.

Jennifer Lawrence was good, so was the girl from 12 Years a Slave, and June Squibb. Kinda wish it was Squibb with the win, though.

I have NO idea what the second award was for or who that person was.

Also, does Bono actually enjoy seeing the world every day through purple sunglasses?

If you are just joining us, the awards have started and we give away the winners.



Or maybe not. Actually the awards are kind of the boring part.

Ok. Jennifer Lawrence. Good job. You get a trophy. Yay!

Next, supporting actress TV movie? Jacqueline Bissett is looking upset, probably because she has to walk 3.4 miles to get to the stage.
No, ok she's happy crying.

If this were the Oscars they would have cut her off already. Hope the Globes allow everyone to give their entire speeches. Oh here we go with the music. Ooh, a swear. Cripes, a kid could hear this.
That was weird.

Who is directing this trainwreck?

Behind the Candelabra - I think it just won but I was too busy reading the other posts. My first trip to NAB in 1994 I went a cocktail party put on by either AVID or SGI held at Liberace's house. That was weird.

Ok what's this next one? Top of the Lake? I just looked on IMDB and this movie is completely made up for the sake of the Golden Globes.

Ooh another swear word. Yay. Oh, it's the girl from Mad Men. Good thing she is branching out because Mad Men is on the way out.

Speaking of on the way out, did anyone notice Homeland got ZERO nominations? Did anyone else happen to notice that Homeland had a stupid ending? Oh here's the "shut up we need to get Matt Damon on the stage music."

Nothing about clean water? He has pledged to not use the bathroom until everyone has access to clean water. He's going to be hopping up and down on one leg for the rest of his life I'm afraid.

So the Hollywood Foreign Press is like 40 people, right?

Ooh there's Pepper Potts opening a bottle of water. TV does not get better.

Someone fire the teleprompter guy.

ok let's see if they get the prompter right - yes.

Best actor in a tv series drama - Bryan Cranston...will he win...?

Yes, of course!!

Hey the whole cast is there. Well deserved.

Don't cut him off...who's the musical director of this multi-car pileup?

Best tv series - Drama - Breaking Bad / Downton Abbey / Good Wife / House of Cards / Masters of Sex

Only one show on Network TV - has to make the tv networks scared. Long Live AMC - Breaking Bad for. the. win!

Hey is that JLaw with a glass of wine? Is she 21 yet?

TV Commercial for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Why add the sub-title? Jack Ryan was a perfectly good title, kind of like Rocky Balboa. Are they afraid not enough young people would know who Jack Ryan is without the mysterious subtitle?

Philomena - is this movie even out yet?

Kate Beckinsale - is she wearing aluminum foil?

Best Score - they give a 3 second sample - really not very useful, as they all sort of sound similar in short bursts.

Alex Ebert, All is Lost - no idea on this one, will have to look it up.

http://music-mix.ew.com/2013/09/12/alexander-ebert-amen/

I think I saw this guy at the Detroit airport today.

Best song - U2 presumably will win...

Inside Llewyn Davis looks really good.

Yeah of course U2 wins. You could nominate U2 for a bowl of chicken noodle soup and they'd win.

But seriously they are very involved in human rights around the world.

Bono has a nice head of hair for someone in his early 50's

I can't believe Julia Louise Dreyfuss is smoking an electronic cigarette on tv. Classy.

Hey Jon Voigt. Has anyone watched Ray Donovan? I have not seen it yet.

Amy Adams - note in her red carpet interview nobody mentioned Man of Steel - just saying.

Remember after 9/11 when we were told to buy duct tape? I think Amy Adams bought most of it to keep that dress on correctly!

Oh really, you're cutting off Amy's lovely speech with music? I invite Tim Wilson to regale us with a tale of the concept behind cutting off speeches with music.

We could be setting a record with the most rapid-fire thread these boards have seen. Keep it up.

It is actually exhausting.

House of Cards - I have seen one episode. I do recall Robin Wright does a great job pulling Kevin Spacey's strings.

I love you Jenny.

I love you Forrest.

Good for Netflix.

Jim Carrey makes fun of Shia Labeauf - someone had to do it.

American Hustle - have to see this one before it goes away.

Cristoph Waltz - isn't he the creator of Breaking Bad? Very similar looking.

Best Supporting Actor in a movie - Jared Leto in Dallas Buyer's Club.
This was supposed to be a very good movie. Is it on RedBox yet?

[Scott Roberts] "Something seems *off* about Laura Dern's face..."

I was seriously under the impression that Laura Dern was created with CGI just for the Jurassic Park movies, so I assumed maybe they didn't render her completely for this show.

Ok just kidding, she's a great actress, especially when running from dinosaurs. She's actually been in 63 movies (only 14 of them were Jurassic Park sequels).

We love you Laura Dern - just joking.

Best Foreign Language Film

Shouldn't the Foreign Press refer to these as simply "films"?

Oh, Amy and Tina are still hosting the show?

Actor in a TV Movie - obviously Michael Douglas is going to win

But it was an amazing performance.

And here comes the music...no I guess Douglas has clout.

I just let out a sizable yawn. This is really a boring show.

Ok here are my nominees for best music video since 1985:

Money for Nothing - Dire Straits
November Rain - Guns-n-Roses
Thriller - Michael Jackson
Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel
Here it Goes Again - OK Go

Voting begins now.

Emma Thompson comes to the podium martini in hand.

Best screenplay...oh she doesn't have the envelope - classic!

Spike Jonze has a great body of work. Good job fighting the music.

Actor, comedy or musical

Is House of Lies a comedy?

Likewise, is Big Bang Theory a comedy? Ouch.

Red Carpet moment - Andy Samberg said "I didn't know I was an actor." Neither did we.

I think someone mentioned Brooklyn 99 on this forum - I'll have to check it out another night.

Ok Kylee, how much longer do we have to keep this up. The show is actually kind of boring. What else can we talk about?

Ok here's one, if they gave Golden Globes for TV commercials or music videos, who should win. Since I have no idea what music videos came out this year, let's go back to 1985.

I bet it is like high school graduation - they give you a plastic one for the award, then ship you the real one later. You're right, it looks pretty cheap.

Oh, Emma Watson is on stage. Anyone see Perks of being a...oh yeah we talked about that one already. Weird ending.

Frozen. Yeah, whatever.

Inside Llewyn Davis. This looks really good. Is it going to be in any movie theaters or direct to DVD.

Next

Emilia Clark from Game of Thrones and some guy presenting best actress in a comedy.

I guess Lena Dunham.

And the golden globe goes to not Lena Dunham. Not Lena Dunham made out with Bono, which I'm not sure Bono was expecting.

Is Parks and Rec funny? Isn't it the Office in another setting? I take that back, I'll have to watch it on Netflix.

Parks and Rec is such a great show. It hasn't been so great this season, but Leslie Knope is just such a great character. I love what the show does with a female lead, I just hope they take it up a notch by the end of this season. Seems like it's going that way.

So glad Amy Poehler is recognized for her work.

I need to see Lena Dunham's dress. I dig yellow.

No Woody Allen films?

Start with "What's Up, Tiger Lilly?"

This is the most commercials I have watched since the invention of the DVR. I hate it. Hate. It.

The Golden Globe award featured in the Chrysler commercial looks nicer than the ones they give out on the show.

My vote would be Thriller for best music video ever. It frightened me when it first came out, but that dance has become one of the most influential choreography works ever.






Ok, back to the boringest ever awards show.

Emma Stone - oh I thought she was British.

Woody Allen award - does not look like he is in attendance.

Since Christmas, I have watched Annie Hall, Manhattan, Stardust Memories, Bananas, Love and Death, Small time Crooks, Scenes from a Mall, Crimes and Misdemeanors, To Rome with Love, Zelig, and Sleeper. I have about 20 more I want to see, but I'm off to a good start. Having seen very few of them previously, I realize why some people don't like his films, but I feel as if I have been channeling him for years without knowing it. In movies that Woody stars in, he plays a similar persona. Movies not containing Woody Allen, especially newer ones tend to be the best ones of all. Ones in which Woody is not the star but which he is in tend to be ok but he should perhaps not have been in them, but I see how over time he has been gradually removing himself from his own movies. But to write, star and direct so many movies year after year does indeed deserve an award.

Ok, so Diane Keaton is accepting the award. She's doing a good job. For many years they were almost one and the same. Here's to you Woody.

Yeah, I'm really enjoying the COW live blogging, but I wonder how much less painful this awards show would have been had I just watched True Detective on HBO live and DVR'd the Globes... Regrets! I guess I'll keep toughing it out, though honestly, this is one of the more boring, uneventful, unfunny awards broadcasts I've seen, and I watch these things every year (for some reason).

Is it over yet? Oh I just learned we have transitioned to the 2016 awards. Star Wars Episode VI: Revenge of the Return of the Empire has won best supporting actor for Harrison Ford whose Han Solo dies in the opening crawl.

Ok, back to 2014. Liam Neeson has somehow become a big action star, oddly after playing a Jedi (not segue, eh)

Gravity - really wish I'd seen that in 3D.

Ben Affleck - did you hear he is playing Batman? Was not sure if that has been in the news at all.

Best director - Cuaron / Greengrass / McQueen / Paine / Russell

Cuaron I say

Yes I was right.

This is interesting:

Here's Tina by herself. That was weird.

I had not seen that Michael Bay clip - wow! Just, wow!

Was he freaking out because the prompter wasn't working or did he not really think a curved tv was anything special?

Here's Bay's explanation:
http://michaelbay.com/2014/01/06/ces/

I guess he's no good speaking in public, yet somehow he can direct actors. Although based upon transformers 3, I'm not so sure he can direct actors either.

Michael Bay "IM-Ploding" for a change. What I don't get about that is that ANY director can easily talk off the top of their head about their creative 'Vision", and after a career full of pitch meetings, you're telling me this director can't ad-lib ONE comment about how a new, epic-sized TV can more fully realize the vision he has in his epic-scale films?

There must have been more going wrong behind the scenes than just a blown prompter cue.

I still don't know why Girls is considered a comedy. Is that because 30 minute shows HAVE TO BE comedies? Because many episodes of Girls make you really take pity on the characters. And not in a funny way.

Ok, Girls did not win. I missed who did, but I don't watch most of the nominees.

Bullying Commercial - good concept but it looks like a minivan commercial. And I may be mistaken but kids that young should not be in the front seat of a car with airbags - or am I mistaken?

Bullying is bad, and seems to be an epidemic. I was bullied until I took matters into my own hands and fought back. I guess you can't do that anymore.

Cheerios commercial - wow that is saccharine.

Live blogging commercials - say it ain't so but the commercials are now more interesting than the awards show.

JLaw back again to present best actor in a comedy (Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle are comedies? They are not advertised as such.

DiCaprio for the win. Surprise. Not really.

OMG I'm tired. Kylee - text me when it's over.

They definitely are.


And ok, seriously, I'm looking at the Golden Globe trophy again, and it's so weird that they just slap the globe on top of one of those generic tan plastic rectangle blocks you can pick out of the catalogue at the trophy store. Who thought that looked prestigious?

BTW, we say Danny Boyle's Trance on DVD over the weekend. After pretty high profile movies 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire, this movie slipped under the radar, but it is really work watching. Without giving too much away, it involves art thieves and hypnotism and keeps you guessing until, the end.

I nominate that for best animated musical or comedy foreign original song.

ok post commercial, we come back mid-patter to introduce Rush.

Here it is, best picture, musical or comedy - I hope Breaking Bad wins...oh forget it...

You'll have to look this one up yourselves.

Yeah! They won!!

Hmm, I think they made the stage too small for a while cast.

can't believe they play music over a best movie speech. Looking forward to Tim's diatribe on this.

More emotional heart-string-tugging commercials

Olympics

Did you see the one where a kid tells his mom that eating Cheerios is like eating breakfast with grandma who is dead. Wow. Tears.

_________

Tina and Amy - wow was that a technical glitch - the whole picture and sound went out for a second

My money's on Cate Blanchett or Sandra, or Emma - tough call

Score.

A win for Cate is a win for Woody. Anyone know how many actors in Woody's films have won acting awards? A lot I bet.

Jessica Chastain - good sign, almost done (she bought some duct tape as well!)

And the Dollar Store Trophy goes to Bongo Boy!

Yeah, it's just an excuse to include more awards worthy films (though, to be fair, Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle are both very funny). But if this were a true comedy category you have to wonder where the This is the End type films are? ya know, like REAL comedies... I guess The Hangover won a few years ago, but still...

Many movies are aubmitted to both categories if they can even barely be considered a comedy so they don't compete with a straight up hard drama like 12 Years a Slave. But damn, these are a bit of a stretch. I think I laughed once during Her. And it wasn't at a joke so much as an awkward thing.

We had a nice thread about 1970's cinema. Well I have to say 1970's rock music was something special too. We'll do a 70's rock music thread later.

Awesome Sony commercial. Interesting showing a cinema camera in a consumer oriented tv commercial.

Final award

Johny Depp - have you seen the Transcendence trailer - looks great:






Look it up yourself, just in case you come to this post first.

Ok is that it?

Can we give out awards for boring awards shows? This has to be at the top of the list.

[Kylee Wall] "1970s rock thread? I dunno, I don't think anyone here is very interested in that.

(Jokes.)"


Back in 2002, long before I started working at the COW, I got Ronald to start a forum called Desert Island Disks. Nothing but music, all the time. Awesome right? Died on the vine.

The thing that finally killed deader than dead was the iPod. It was released in 2001, but didn't really REALLY catch on until 20004...but as early as 2003, people in the forum were saying, "Ten disks to take to a desert island? I've got 1000 of 'em on my iPod."

So then I suggested we morph that forum to one that also included movies and TV, and call it Now Playing. Which died. It eventually became a place for people to post reels....which died when we created a reels section of the COW.

This particular forum was indeed my third try to create a forum built around media consumption rather than production, and I want to thank the dozen of you here for making my 13 year old dream come true. LOL

So yeah, I could do a 70s music thread, which Tom Sefton nearly fired me up to on the 70s Cinema thread.

(For the record, Tom, 1969 only comes in at #6 on my best years ever for rock and roll!)

(Unrelated, but the ELO track in the American Hustle promos? From 1971.)

Anyway....

---I had high hopes for this show, but other than the George Clooney joke and JLaw, I don't know that we laughed on purpose the whole night.

---I don't know that anyone actually tried walking from the middle of the room to the stage during rehearsal. If they did, they'd have realized that they were going to lose 15 minutes of the broadcast to people just walking. God bless Robin Wright for running.

---The only award I'd have been willing to be money on, and I'd have bet BIG money on, was Leo DiCaprio. Actually, I'd have bet a freaking fortune. An absolute lock.

---The money that I made on that would maybe have covered how much I lost when Cate B won over Sandy B.

Cuarón was a lock, though. I'd have bet huge on him, so I might have come out a little ahead on the night.


>>>>>>>Here's the Oscar wild card, though. Last year, I just assumed that the Golden Globe comedy/drama split was opening up some air for Silver Linings Playbook, until the all-drama-all-the-time Oscars would put it back in the box for Zero Dark Thirty to run the table.

It turns out that the opposite was true of course. ZDT/JCas were getting their turn in the spotlight before SLP/JLaw shut them down.

Of course the other wild card is trying to parse the distance between the about 90 (they don't actually say how many of them there are!!!), apparently easily corruptible, members of the HFPA and the 6000 sterling characters in the Academy.

What I'm saying is, did Cuarón or McQueen benefit more from the split? What happens when these two movies go head to head in the same category?

I actually got a hint while watching the festivities at my (for now) home town Palm Springs International Film Festival -- that thing was fulllllll of 12 Years A Slave love, even with a resplendent Sandra in attendence, and the PSIFF having named Cuaron "Director To Watch" after the world premiere of his first feature at the PSIFF, "Love In The Time of Hysteria" in 1991.

I'm still in the momentum tracking phase before I'd place a bet, but I'm liking how 12 Years / McQueen is looking.

And gotta give credit to the HFPA. Greengrass, Russell, McQueen, Payne, Cuarón -- that's a pretty nice list.

...BUT...does Scorsese get shut out of an American list? Really? REALLY? What happens when you have Marty, McQueen, Cuarón...and maybe Russell and Payne? Because I could see this MAYBE being a year where Captain Phillips is one of, say, 9 best pic noms that doesn't make the 5 best directors cut.

Mike Cohen: Oh really, you're cutting off Amy's lovely speech with music? I invite Tim Wilson to regale us with a tale of the concept behind cutting off speeches with music.

Most jaw-dropping example: playing off FRANK SINATRA when he was receiving a LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD at the fkking GRAMMYS.

Oh em gee, it was a trainwreck. Not only do they start playing him off , but they're going to commercial, so the stage fades to black, but FRANK IS STILL STANDING THERE, gesticulating, IN THE DARK. A bunch of logos are going up on screen -- tonight's Grammy Awards is brought to you by, etc -- but WE CAN STILL SEE HIM, backlit, waving his arms in disbelief.

He wasn't raging like Zeus or anything. It was more, you brought me here to give me this, and then CUT ME OFF? He hadn't even been on long, but even if he had.....duuuude. Sinatra, lifetime achievement, Grammy, played off: one of these things is not like the fkking others.

The director of that telecast is lucky that the rumors of Frank's ties to the mob were overstated, or to this day, nobody would have found his body.


Best ever response to PMPO (Premature Playoff), the 2007 Oscars hosted by Jon Stewart. The Irish indie upstart Once comes out of nowhere, and Glenn Hansard and Marketa Irglova win for that amazing song "Falling Slowly," but right after Glenn's speech, they shut Marketa down. Shut her down HARD. It was brutal.

So brutal that, after the commercial break JON BROUGHT HER OUT TO GIVE HER SPEECH. Awesomest part: it was the best speech of the night.(In fact, Glenn's own speech was so sincere and clearly heartfelt that Jon had to tease him a little about it.)

People keep putting this clip up and Oscar keeps taking it down...rather than, say, putting it up at their own site...so watch this one quick. The whole clip is fun, but Marketa gets played off at 1:25, and Jon brings her back around 2:00.





[Mike Cohen] " Danny Boyle's Trance...I nominate that for best animated musical or comedy foreign original song."

I know you're kidding, and I'm laughing, but please tell me you've seen Danny Boyle's Trainspotting recently. If not, watch it NOW. Underworld's single "Born Slippy" playing under Renton's final speech is one of the great bits of movie music of ALL TIME. That one clip is how Danny Boyle and Underworld became responsible for the opening ceremonies at the London Olympics.

(Danny was the artistic director, Underworld were the musical directors.)

Boyle did use another Underworld track in Trainspotting -- "Dark & Long (Dark Train)" -- but the way he used Born Slippy changed the course of British musical history, and I'd argue of the course of music history everywhere. It was so overwhelmingly emotional, so deeply evocative, with the kind of majesty befitting the nation for whom "majesty" carries more weight than any other on earth, that it's impossible that the UK olympic committee debated for a single second. Save that Beatles and Stones shite for the closing ceremony. To open, it can ONLY be Danny Boyle and Underworld.

We'll save Trainspotting's whole heroin addiction, soiling oneself, hallucinatory dead baby, eyebrow-singeing profanity, violent drunks, underage promiscuity thing for another thread. Besides, it's a comedy!

Trainspotting, man. No kidding. Watch watch watch watch. And listen. This is what it sounds like when the old world splits open and the new one bursts out breathing fire.

++++++++

Jeez louise, as much as I live my life off-topic, the fact that I can't remember anything AT ALL else from this show worth talking about, and I LOVE AWARDS SHOWS....welp, there you go. That's my review.


Mike Cohen: We could be setting a record with the most rapid-fire thread these boards have seen.

If by "these boards" you mean THIS forum, yes. If you mean the COW as a whole, not even close. I'll just say "live blogging the 2011 Supermeet" and leave it at that.

@Tim - Trainspotting is one of our faves - we saw it two or three times at the theater and own 2 or 3 versions on VHS and DVD, and both soundtracks. It was really a visually and dramatic yet funny masterpiece. And yes the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony was the most incredible thing I think I have ever seen on live TV (I missed the Moon Landing by a few years).

Thanks for contributing Tim

Mike
