Who else watched the Golden Globes last night? I thought it was much more entertaining than it's been in quite some time. Between Ricky Gervais' outlandish jokes, Robert Downey Jr.'s hilarious acceptance speech, and the porcupines growing out of Drew Barrymore's shoulder and hip, I definitely enjoyed watching it. I was shocked that neither Anna Kendrick or Vera Farmiga won Best Supporting Actress for "Up in the Air," and I could not BELIEVE that George Clooney lost out to Jeff Bridges in his category. (Hopefully George will get the last laugh with an Oscar, though.)
What were your favorite (or least favorite) moments from last night?

This late-night battle is getting ridiculous. NBC is screwing both Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien over. Personally, I'm a Dave Letterman fan, and if I had to choose between Conan and Jay, Conan would lose. However, Conan is the one getting screwed over royally by this new deal, and I don't blame him at all for coming out today and saying that he'll quit "The Tonight Show" if NBC bumps his time slot. Frankly, the only thing Conan is guilty of is not seeing something like this coming. Has he forgotten what NBC did to Dave Letterman when Johnny Carson left "The Tonight Show" in the 1990's? Screwing over comedic talent is what NBC does best!

It's official: Rod Blagojevich is going to be a contestant on the upcoming season of Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice." My guess is that The Donald will fire Blago just for the ego-inflated "thrill" of doing so, or maybe just on general principle. (Then again, Donald is allowing this man to be on his show, so what does that say about his principles?)
I must admit, I tune into Blago's madman radio show every once in a while for a few good laughs. I'll probably check out "Celebrity Apprentice" for the exact same reasons.

...Jacob Black is back on the market!
"Twilight" heartthrob Taylor Lautner broke up with his girlfriend, music superstar Taylor Swift. The two supposedly decided their relationship was going nowhere fast, and just decided to be friends. Now girls ages 8 to 97 can rejoice!

Actress Brittany Murphy of "Clueless" and "Sin City" fame died this morning after suffering cardiac arrest. She was only 32 years old.
I must admit, I've never been a huge fan of Brittany's work, but whenever anyone dies this young, it's a tragedy. Of course numerous tabloids are already speculating that her death was a result of a drug overdose, but no one knows anything for sure at this point, and honestly, who cares? People who are healthy and in their thirties do die of heart attacks sometimes, and it's terrible. My thoughts go out to Brittany's family.

...and George Clooney's film "Up in the Air" is the front-runner, with six nominations. I was also pleased that both Michael C. Hall and John Lithgow received well-deserved nominations for "Dexter." You can check out the complete list of nominations here. The Golden Globes will be held on January 17.

Who else watches "Dexter?" It's one of my favorite shows and I was completely blown away by the final moments of last night's season finale. Did anyone see that coming?! I think I can safely say that in my 30 years of life, that was the best season finale of any TV show I have ever seen, EVER!
What did you think of the ending? Let's discuss in the comments (which will likely be spoiler-heavy, so be warned if you haven't seen the show yet!).

It's all about the neck tattoos.

I realize that people's private lives really shouldn't be the public's business, but it must be said that Tiger Woods is an asshat. Every day, there's more and more drama about him and his army of skanks, I mean mistresses, in the media. It's sickening to watch. I feel so bad for his wife, Elin. It's bad enough when marriages collapse in private, but imagine having to go through all this pain and suffering with the whole world watching. At least Tiger's children are too young to understand exactly what's going on, but I'm sure the tension in their household is incredibly tough on them, too. And what will they think of their father when they're old enough to understand what he did?
