A Golden Globes Recap

Well, being the middle of January you know what time it is... Awards Season! *applause* I have to be honest, I didn't get to see most of the movies or even hear about them so I really didn't care who won other than Glee. I was really just watching it because Ricky Gervais was hosting and he is really funny. Although, he is supposedly not allowed to host anymore because of his jokes. I thought they were pretty funny.

Here's a list of the big winners from Sunday night.
  • Cecil B. DeMille Award-  Robert DeNiro
  • Best Movie, Drama- The Social Network
  • Best Movie, Comedy/Musical- The Kids Are Alright
  • Best Actress, Drama- Natalie Portman (Black Swan)
  • Best Actor, Drama- Colin Firth (The King's Speech)
  • Best Actress, Comedy/Musical- Annette Benning (The Kids Are Alright)
  • Best Actor, Comedy/Musical- Paul Giamatti (Barney's Version)

Lifetime Movies

Well maybe because this is a made-for-TV movie it counts as relevant to this blog. Last night I watched The Craigslist Killer on Lifetime. I didn't really know a whole lot about the event itself, but Jake McDorman (Greek, Aquamarine) was in it which was enough for me :) I didn't really think that the movie was that exciting per say, but it was interesting. This guy who had everything he could ever want and didn't feel like he deserved it so he killed some people so that he could be punished. The whole scene where his fiance went to go visit him in jail was the best part in my opinion. But then after she left and broke off their engagement the day after their wedding was supposed to take place he killed himself which was kind of sad. Not sad as in "Why would he do that? He had so much to live for." I felt bad for him though. Now, killing people isn't ever okay don't get me wrong. But I don't think that he completely did it on purpose. Did you watch this last night? If so, leave me a comment with what you thought.

December 20th- December 24th

I can't believe that there is basically nothing on TV right now. It's the only thing I hate about the holidays.

Tabitha's Salon Take-Over: I honestly forgot that this show had started but I love it! It helps that she's from the UK. Just like every reality show, there is drama, and it usually comes in the form of an unruly stylist or uncaring owner. It is on Bravo! at 10pm Monday nights.

16&Pregnant: As always, they have to have a girl who considers adoption for their child in every season. This season, Ashley struggles with the choice. She is hoping her aunt and uncle will adopt her baby but she doesn't know whether or not it's the right decision.

*Friday Night Lights will be be back January 5th on Direct TV's The 101 Network*

December 13-December 17

The only show on this week is 16&Pregnant. That doesnt give me a lot to write about.
*Megan has a hard time getting her gamer boyfriend to help her out with just about anything.

My other fave shows are returning...
  • House: January 17th
  • Glee: February 6th
  • OTH: January 25th
  • American Idol: January 19th-20th
  • Secret Life of the American Teenager: Sometime in January. (As much as I hate this show, I have to watch to see what happens. It's like a car crash!)

Kayla (16&Pregnant)

I think that this has been my favorite episode so far this season. Kayla is a Southern belle from Alabama who does pageants, loves horses and even hunts. Her boyfriend/fiance J.R. works as a mechanic and because he doesn't make much, they haven't moved into their own place yet or gotten married. Both of their parents feel really strongly about them getting married before their little boy, Rylan, is born. Because of her pregnancy, she is no longer able to participate in pageants or go to UAB with all her friends to get her degree in nursing.

As much as she loves J.R., she is worried about moving out of her parent's house and he doesn't really seem to understand that. His parents offer his grandparent's house old house for them to live in, but only if they get married. During  a photo shoot that her mom arranged, J.R. proposed and now they not only have  baby to pay for, but a wedding and fixing up the house. Not long after, she starts having contractions even though she is 5 weeks early. When they arrive at the hospital, they find out that she is already 7cm dilated and thus Rylan Jayce is born.

Kayla takes a month off of school because she is so afraid of leaving little Rylan alone with anyone but her because he was premature. When she finally returns, she realizes that her and her friends have grown apart. All they are preparing for is prom and all she wants to do is spend time with Rylan. J.R. moves in with Kayla and her parents because they haven't moved out yet. She is still very hesitant about moving out and getting married, but is taking things one step at a time and making sure that all of her decisions are what's best for Rylan.

A Very Glee Christmas

The only part of the storyline that wasn't addressed in this is the official end of Finnchel. While Finn and Rachel are on the hunt for a new tree after Sue chopped theirs to bits, Rachel tries yet again to apologize. Finn decides that time is what will heal their relationship and officially breaks up with her. My heart was breaking the whole time but at the very end of the episode, the way they were looking at each other was the glimmer of hope that all us Finnchel 'shippers needed to survive through the hiatus.

December 6 - December 10 Shows

*This week, we have a lot of "Last new episode for a while" happening. Shows in which this will be occurring will be BOLD

Glee: Finn tries to bring a little Christmas spirit and Sue tries to rig the secret Santa. Dramalicious!
