The Golden Globes Show Was Very Moving

I really enjoyed watching the Golden Globes last night on NBC. The actors and actresses were all very glamorous. I have no quarrel with their fashions. They looked great.

Ricky Gervais was a great MC and very funny, though perhaps considered caustic by delicate sensibilities.

The Social Network was the big winner. It won best drama and top prizes for both David Fincher, great director of (among others) Seven, Fight Club and Zodiac, and Aaron Sorkin, the wonderful showrunner/writer emeritus of the West Wing, which dealt with matters of politics and power very deftly.

I was moved by his acceptance speech. He praised the founder of Facebook and also gave a ringing shoutout to all the mothers, sisters and daughters out there that it was cool to be smart. That's the code I live by. Good to hear it on such a platform.
