The 74th Annual Golden Globes Round Up 2017

Quick RECAP of the Hollywood Foreign Press

 74th Golden Globe Awards

 By Tinsel & Tine Editor, Le Anne Lindsay

Man, was it noisy this year. Every year all the celebrities say this is the most fun awards show because of the eating, drinking and socializing, but this was the first year people didn't pipe down when the next presenter came on. Some presenters didn't seem to know how to handle it. Although, everyone got good and quiet during Meryl Streep's address to not only Hollywood, but to the country. I've heard the criticisms and unfortunately, her speech didn't cause as big a stir as I would have liked.  Still, I love that she was like, body of work, life time achievement, Cecile B. Demille, to heck with all that, I'm gonna use this time to say Trump (without using his name) you're appalling and then rally the battle cry for artists and journalist to be vigilant.

In past years, I've really bought a big spread for my RED CARPET PICNIC, but this year I kept it mainly to a cheese board.  The board itself, was a Christmas gift from my friend Heather. It's one of those cool blackboard kind where you can write the name of the cheese in chalk on the display.

Menu: Homemade Crostini, Roasted Garlic with Tomato & Basil Hard Cheese, Cranberry & Cinnamon Goat Cheese, Chicken Salad, Smoked Salmon, Deviled Eggs, Cheese Curls, homemade Almond Joy Cookies and a dry Bordeaux.

I think I was one of the very first people to tweet about Jenna Bush Hager interviewing Pharrell on the red carpet and accidentally calling his movie "Hidden Fences" instead of Hidden Figures.  But then I messed it up further by typing so quickly that I wrote lack cast instead of black cast.

I have to say, some of the #HiddenFences tweets combining popular black movies & shows into one title were pretty funny like: The Help Got Away With Murder | 12 Years A Butler and Straight Outta Selma
Jimmy Fallon should have just done the opening La La Land pre-recorded bit which was great, especially if you've seen the movie. Because his monologue didn't have much punch. Actually, a host is unnecessary. Having an announcer introduce the presenters is all that's needed.

I'm am happy La La Land got an unprecedented 7 Golden Globe Awards. Kudos to everyone involved in getting it to the big screen. Plus, my interview with Damien Chazelle had been getting very little traffic. I don't think people cared about the writer/director even though the movie musical had been getting buzz since summer; but now my interview is definitely picking up!  On the other hand, I have to admit, I kinda hope "La La Land" doesn't sweep the Oscars. I do love the cast, the originality, and the songs grow on you during the film; but I don't like the ending, so it's not my favorite movie of this Awards season.

But I'm all for Emma Stone who looked dazzling in her star studded Valentino gown, it was perfect for her. My pick for BEST DRESS of the night. Blake Lively in a dramatic black velour gown, couldn't be more different from Stone's, but definitely a close second for best dress for me.

More on ...


Yellows from near chartreuse to buttercup seemed to be trending:

 And also silvery gold-ish Metallic:

A number of plunging necklines or what I call "Show Off Your Sternum Gowns"  These two were my favorites:

And for WORSE DRESSED Carrie Underwood those pink ruffles looked like a cake that got turned over in the car. Octavia Spencer had a really ill-fitting pant suit, I understand she was looking to make a female empowerment statement by wearing a feminine tux, but I don’t know who tailored it for her. Felicity Jones' dress was not as ugly on stage, but look how horrible it photographed on the red carpet:

Not only were Sylvester Stallone's daughters the Miss Golden Globe statue presenters (Scarlet, 14, Sistine, 18, and Sophia, 20), he got to have a little reunion with his Rocky opponent/friend Carl Weathers:

Despicable Me 3 duo Kristen Wiig & Steve Carrell getting maudlin about made up sad childhood memories while presenting for best animated film, hit home on the funny meter. And Kristen's new short hair cut is perfect for her face:

I'm also glad Zootopia won, as that was my pick for best animated feature, in a year with a hole slew of animated movies.

Love that critics and movie-goers alike have been embracing MOONLIGHT. I remember Barry Jenkins Medicine for Melancholy was the only black film screened at the 17th Philadelphia Film Festival.  Look how far he's come.  For that matter, PFF has come a long way too, with much more diverse programming the past few festivals.

OSCAR NOMINATIONS are announced Tues January 24th | The Oscars are held Sunday, February 26th I think most of the same movies will be honored; although, I do hope Taraji P. Henson and Hidden Figures receive nominations. I also think Martin Scorsese Silence, which I've seen, but haven't yet written a post, will get nominated.

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST


The key to deciphering both the city it beautifully depicts and the man who eats it best - City of Gold

By Tinsel & Tine Contributor Denine Gorniak (The Bicycle-Chef)

What Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times food critic/writer, has done for food writing journalism and for the restaurants that he loves, the movie, City of Gold has done for Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles and its surrounding environs – it has planted taco covered kisses on them... READ POST

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

Food n Film: WAITRESS

Food n Film: WAITRESS
In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. 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?
