71st Annual Golden Globes Red Carpet Picnic - Social Media Party!

Sunday, January 5, 2014

Post Update 1/13/2014 -

Thank you to those who joined me on facebook, twitter, google+, pinterest and the newly discovered zeebox last night!

Here's some highlights from my running commentary:

 ORIGINAL POST - Party Invite

What should I fill this basket with Jan 12th?

I'm thinking a virtual party may be the best way to throw a party!  No invites, no noshows, no cleaning up, no wondering if you're going to run out of liqueur or food, no need to put a new LBD (little black dress) on your already overloaded credit card bill.

Tinsel & Tine will be having an online social media party during the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Sun. January 12, 2014. Follow me on facbook, twitter, pinterest or google+ and chime in on my comments during the red carpet and awards show.

As Tinsel & Tine (Reel & Dine) is about Film & Food - I like to feature the meal I'm having while posting, twitting and remarking on the red carpet and broadcast.

Last year, this was my 70th Golden Globe spread from Trader Joe's - My carpet was blue, but you get the picture.

Would love it if a Philly Restaurant was willing to provide Tinsel & Tine a Golden Globe Food & Film Social Media Party Picnic (for 1) - in exchange for being prominently featured on T&T and all our social media platforms the days leading up to and during the festivities!

The executive chefs of the Beverly Hilton, the Golden Globes' home for the past four decades, recently unveiled the "golden" menu enjoyed by the year's best in television and film...

Two Golden Globe Nominees- Matthew McConaughey & Jared Leto

Dallas Buyers Club: I know I hate to see the 30th loom up on the calendar, because it's time to pay rent and a host of other misc and sundry bills, but can you imagine looking at the calendar in terms of the end of your time here on earth? Of course, at least debt would be the last thing on your mind at that point. I'd expect somebody like Ron Woodruff, a rather sordid kinda guy, to just let the illness or his destructive life choices, whichever got to him first, just take him out; and he does contemplate suicide, but then he decides to fight. You see Woodruff at the library doing AIDS treatment research; he's got a little cash set aside, so he bribes a hospital worker to get him the latest clinical AIDS trial drug; when that goes south, he goes south of the border to Mexico to look for drugs there...

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE


...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST


With a film like this, food plays a main character in the story and I was lucky enough to get an interview with the film's Food Stylist, Janine Kalesis.READ POST


Those of us in attendance were not only given the opportunity to see Babette's Feast, the Oscar winning, Danish film, considered one of the all-time great "food films"; we also got to taste Babette's menu! READ POST

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
