Golden Globe Highlights

The Golden Globes once again took place over the weekend, and it was full of predictability. The usual suspects won (for a full list, click here) at the 69th iteration of this thing, and aside from Ricky Gervais's usual barbs--which, while toned down, were still quite funny--there wasn't too much to get excited about.

That being said, there were TWO things that are worth sharing, and one of them involves the above Gervais. His opening monologue had its share of insults and barbs, which is always welcome at these otherwise dry award shows. But the real winner may have been a little 10-second clip of Morgan Freeman, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for being awesome. Freeman is one of the best and most recognizable actors in the game, so plenty of his highlights, like Shawshank Redemption and Driving Miss Daisy made the montage of his work. The best of the bunch, though, was one from the PBS children's show Electric Company. Freeman portrays a vampire taking a bath in a casket, and, well...that's really all you need to know. Watch the original clip (from 37 years ago) of that scene below.
