Recap of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assoc Awards 76th Golden Globes
Tinsel & Tine's

RECAP of the Hollywood Foreign Press


by Le Anne Lindsay, Editor

It was nice to return to the revelry of lighter spirits at the Golden Globes, after last year's all black red carpet, women's movement take over; not that I didn't approve, but the seriousness of what was happening didn't exactly make for a party. This year the emphasis was back on the free flowing champagne, where it ought to be.  Hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra Oh, the pair delivered a cute opening bit consisting of supposedly dissing on the celebrities, with effusive praise.  There was a lot of congratulations on the diversity in the room, on stage and nominated. And a number of gorgeous gowns, so let's get to our red carpet picks...

Golden Globe Red Carpet Tinsel & Tine Best Dress Patricia Clarkson

The red carpet for me is ageless, if you are slaying, you are slaying! I absolutely fell in love with Patricia Clarkson in this tangerine confection by Georges Chakra Couture. It's not only a spectacular dress, but it's perfect for her spirit and figure.  Congrats Patty on your Golden Globe for Sharp Objects.

On first look at both of these choices I said not feeling it. Then looked again and was like, ya know what? these do work for each of the actresses and the designs themselves.  Good job Julia Roberts in Stella McCartney and Constance Wu in Vera Wang

Lady Gaga Valentino homage to Judy Garland

No one is going to deny Lady Gaga won the red carpet hands down. It's just too easy to give her best dressed, but yes, Gaga wearing that larger-than-life periwinkle Valentino dress will not soon be forgotten.  And I like that she did not forget one of her Star is Born, predecessors by wearing a gown inspired by one Judy Garland wore to the Oscars in 1954.

Glenn Close and Melissa McCarthy both went magical on the red carpet
I guess we'll never know what spell of magical whimsy got into Glenn Close (Armani Privé) and Melissa McCarthy (Reem Acra) to inspire these choices on the red carpet, but any way, Congrats Glenn on the Golden Globe for Best Actress - Drama for The Wife

Golden Globes Anne Hathaway, Judy Greer, Elisabeth Moss, Elsie Fisher
Anne Hathaway (Elie Saab) usually comes correct on the red carpet, so I don't mind chastising her on this trailer park trash comes to Hollywood look, which I'm sure she regrets. I do feel bad about putting Elisabeth Moss (Christian Dior Haute Couture) on this list 1) because I love her and 2) because all the designers who dressed her gave a donation to a charity called RAD, however, she looks damn awkward in this dress, it's just not flattering. I know it's wrong to make fun of a kid on her first red carpet outing, but who decided Elsie Fisher (Kenzo/Lonchamp) would look good as one of Santa's Elves out on Epiphany. I have no sympathy for Judy Greer, this was not a fun risk, this was made for ridicule.

76th Golden Globes Regina King, Kiki Layne, Danai Gurira, Halle Berry

It goes without saying these women of color only know how to bring it on the red carpet Regina King In Alberta Ferretti - Congrats on Supporting Actress win for If Beale Street Could Talk, Kiki Layne In Dior Haute Couture, Danai Gurira In Rodarte, Halle Berry Zuhair Murad

Tinsel & Tine's Annual Red Carpet Picnic

Those who have followed my annual Golden Globe recaps (see below for links) know that I normally put out a crazy spread for awards night. But this year, I didn't invite over any friends for a watching party. Plus, I'd been out to brunch earlier, so I kept it to a reasonable size picnic this year:


I can't say honoree Jeff Bridges speech had people chanting Bridges for 2020, like Oprah's last year. Still, in his own way, it was very inspiring and zen like, but what else would you expect from "The Dude"?


I thought the Flu Shot bit was a bit lame, and it turns out it was fake anyway, they weren't really giving out celebrity flu shots. A guy in my office said they should have made it Botox, then everyone would have been excited about a needle coming at them - LOL


Of course, Carol Burnett's ground breaking variety show already did that, but now to have an Annual Best in TV Award named after her, in her lifetime, no wonder she was "Gobsmacked", it's quite an honor, and one she truly deserves.

And the Golden Globe Goes To...

Once again, my track record for predictions was pretty shoddy. I got a few of the easy ones right, was pleasantly wrong on some, and irately wrong on others:

Got this one right! Congrats Olivia Coleman who seems not very far from her character in The Favourite" 😆

Great speech by Glenn Close, but come on, all signs were in favor of Lady Gaga, she was robbed 😞

Rami Malek did put his heart and soul into playing Freddie Mercury - so, although I really wanted to see Bradley Cooper win, I was almost equally happy to see Malek get the gold.

I got Christian Bale right in my predictions, but his winning was a no brainer. Loved when he said, "I'd like to thank Satan for the inspiration to play the role" 😆

Totally understand ROMA winning best Foreign Film, but Bradley Cooper was robbed out of Best Director. Alfonso Cuaron's film is a bit self-indulgent and a little too personal in my opinion.
However, this is wonderful... So happy for this school teacher turned actress getting to kick up her heels and find a bit of glamour. Isn't this what we all want - just at least a little piece of the Hollywood experience? I know I do!!!
And to wrap it up, I'm still upset, by this upset - technically, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, A STAR IS BORN and BLACK PANTHER should have been in the Motion Picture Comedy or Musical category, as none of them are truly dramas, but A Star is Born, would be the closest, and therefore, should have won. But how the devil did Bohemian Rhapsody beat out the cinematic excellence that is Black Panther!?!

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
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
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
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

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?
