Not-so-deep thoughts by Valerie

I'm watching the Golden Globes and what's on my mind this second is "The Affair"?! Really? Over "The Good Wife?" Over "Downton Abbey"? I don't think so.

Anyway, I'll carry on.

I did a double header today (with lunch in between)...and saw Big Eyes and then Into the Woods. I enjoyed both, but am confused as to why Big Eyes is in the "Comedy or Musical" category for the Golden Globes. (Into the Woods is where it belongs...) I laughed out loud once during that movie and it was in the last 15 minutes.

In other news, I watched the pilot episode of "Empire" and am intrigued. Some of the acting leaves a little to be desired, but I love Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. And the music has been great so far. If you don't know, the show is about a music mogul (Terrence) who's about to go public with his company when his ex-wife gets out of jail and comes back wanting to claim half. On top of that, Terrence has been diagnosed with ALS....no one else knows that, but he is looking for one of his three sons to take over the company. The main thing that bothered me about this show though, is that Terrence & Taraji are MY age and they're playing parents of kids who are well into their twenties. I'm having a hard time with that. I'm sure I'll get over it.

Watching George Clooney's speech now. Swoon. He's a fantastic human being.

First, Tina and Amy were HILARIOUS. Second, loved, loved George's speech. Third, I wish Empire was only about Terrence and Taraji. The sons drive me crazy.
