Golden Globes Classic Moment: Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig – A Little Friday Funny Golden Globes are this Sunday. I know I’ve been rough on award shows. We have one for everything now: Emmys, Oscars, tonys, ESPYs, Golden Globes, People’s Choice, Critic’s Choice, Image Awards, Independent Spirit Awards, SAG Awards, Kid’s Choice, VMAs, CMAs, and of course, the Christian version – The Dove Awards. It is no longer enough just to write a book, make a movie, star in a musical, write a play, or sing a song; you have to win a contest over everyone else, right? That’s the pinnacle in our society. It seems a bit lacking in artistic or poetic beauty doesn’t it? Seems to me the way we celebration imagination in our culture should involve a little more, I don’t know… imagination.

Typically I abstain from watching all award shows on principle. There are only a few with which I cannot help myself. I usually catch some of the Oscars, but my favorite is the Golden Globes – mostly because they are both film and television. I can get a crash course on pop culture, because I’m chronically late to that party. The Golden Globes are built around the Hollywood Foreign Press, so I feel like the show is a little smarter than most award shows. Finally, they have the good sense to let Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler host the show – two of the funniest people on the planet.

This is a clip from last year’s show, where two great sketch comedians – Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig – do their thing. Can’t figure out why Tommy Lee Jones was so cranky about it. Anyone?

Happy Friday, my people. I hope your work day is productive and short!
