The Golden Globes have always been the alcoholic, red-headed stepchild of the award shows. In 2013, betchy hero Tina Fey confirmed this when she explained that the Globes were basically just “a bunch of people in a room who don’t eat much” getting fucked up and mispronouncing each other’s names. So like, every sorority pref night ever, but with famous/hotter people.
The reason for this? Moët & Chandon provide the awards ceremony with 7,500 glasses of champagne every year and like, my respect level for all these talented assholes just reached new heights. That’s a lot of fucking alcohol. Referring to the 2009 ceremony, Sandra Bullock said, “Probably the best thing about the long, long, long show was the free drinks.” Fucking obviously, Miss Congeniality. Fuck that dumb, arbitrary statuette. Long live free booze.
