it has started; the hollywood award season, that is.
i watched all i could last night, which means once i had eaten my "post-solo slip and slide late afternoon early evening bike ride" meal, and the steamed veggies and ramen noodle concoction took hold on my consciousness, i fell asleep, missing what proved to be for many the highlight of the show: sacha baron cohen's acceptance speech.
until such time that i can steal it from youtube, the text will have to do. sorry.
Funnyman SACHA BARON COHEN provided the comic highlight of last night's Golden Globe Awards when he paid tribute to BORAT co-star KEN DAVITIAN's "rancid" gas. The BORAT star, who claimed one of the event's Best Actor awards, had stars like WILL SMITH, MARK WAHLBERG and JACK NICHOLSON rolling in the aisles at the Beverly Hilton hotel with his hilarious acceptance speech. The Brit quipped, "This movie was a life-changing experience. I saw some amazing, beautiful, invigourating parts of America but I saw some dark parts of America, an ugly side of America, a side of America that rarely sees the light of day. "I refer of course to the anus and testicles of my co-star Ken Davitian. "Ken, when I was in that scene and I stared down and saw your two wrinkled golden globes on my chin, I thought to myself, `I'd better win a bloody award for this.' "And then, when my 300 pound co-star decided to sit on my face and squeeze the oxygen from my lungs, I was faced with a choice: death or to breathe in the air that had been trapped in a small pocket between his buttocks for 30 years. "Kenneth, if it was not for that rancid bubble, I would not be here today."
