I don’t make it a habit to watch the Golden Globes. Yeah, “La La Land” may be destined to win the best picture Oscar. But as they unloaded all their love on various Brits last night (“The Crown”? Ahem.) for TV shows, well, I remembered why they don’t matter and that I’m weaning myself of NBC programming altogether, as a matter of principle.
Still, any time Hugh Laurie does something worth honoring, they honor it. Remember when he went through one of his “House” acceptance speeches by pulling names out of assorted pockets, one pocket per win? He’d thank the makeup/wardrobe/screenwriter, etc. whose name was on what came out of that pocket?
He did something equally witty with his “Night Manager” villain win last night.
