Mark and I watched a bit of the Golden Globes last night. I learned about how very many "journeys" all of these actors and directors are on. And they have travel partners who make their journeys possible. And they go all the way, on these journeys, from being an actor who hadn't yet performed that given role to being an actor who had. What a journey!
Neil Armstrong went on a journey. I am not entirely sure Django Unchained's Christopher Waltz did the same.
Anyway, the other thing actors and directors did was show bravery and courage. Mostly the evening was focused on hailing the anti-Sarah Palin movie Game Change. Yawn.
Director Jay Roach explained just how "brave" Julianne Moore was to mock Sarah Palin in her role. To which I'll offer up two tweets in response:
@MoRocca: Yes, so brave of Hollywood actress Julianne Moore to make fun of Sarah Palin.
@AndyLevy: Haven’t been able to tweet since learning how brave it was for Julianne Moore to play Sarah Palin cuz I’m afraid she’ll never work again
Making a movie, starring known stage and screen talents, based off of one of the most popular musicals of all time shows courage, said star Hugh Jackman:
“Les Miserables is a project of passion; it took a lot of courage to make it,” declared the handsome actor before thanking his cast mates and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness in a passionate and heart-felt speech.
Writing about your experiences to the acclaim of all elites shows courage:
9:30 p.m. Modern Family nominee Julie Bowen commends comedy actress winner Lena Dunham's courage and tells THR she lives HBO's Girls. "I wish I had her courage," she says. "I'm so glad that generation has someone to tell their stories."
Michael J. Fox’s son Sam Michael made his debut as Mr. Golden Globe, thereby showing ... courage:
Sam has never had any showbiz aspirations, so this was kind of out of the blue," his famous dad told Access Hollywood Sunday night. "I love that he's got the courage and the curiosity and the sense of adventure to do it."
Even the Hollywood Foreign Press Association showed courage, according to the San Francisco Chronicle:
It's humbling to be around so much courage. Maybe I can take a journey like theirs someday, where I will also learn about bravery.
