Geeks rule at Golden Globe Awards

Talk about revenge of the nerds.

The Golden Globes was indeed golden for the geeks as they swept the awards. “The Social Network” racked up four awards (we wonder if Zuckerberg mentioned that in his Facebook status) for best dramatic motion picture, best screenplay, best director and best original score.

The gleeks also had something to sing about as “Glee” won for best television series – comedy or musical, while cast member Jane Lynch snagged best actress in a supporting role in a series, miniseries or made for television motion picture, and co-star Chris Colfer was named best actor in a supporting role.

Colfer gave a major shout out to the nerd herd: "Most importantly, to all the amazing kids that watch our show and the kids that our show celebrates, who are constantly told 'no' by the people in their environments, by bullies at school that they can't be who they are or have what they want because of who they are. Well, screw that, kids."

And while his character on “Boardwalk Empire” isn’t exactly geekish, Steve Buscemi has long been claimed by that crew for his several off beat and smarmy performances, often in productions by the Coen brothers. Buscemi took home the best performance by an actor in a dramatic television series award.

But the biggest geek globe went to the poster boy for the tribe, Jim Parsons, who won best performance by an actor in a television series – comedy or musical for his performance as Sheldon Cooper in “The Big Bang Theory.”

Parsons plays the part of a socially inept, completely self-absorbed physicist so well that he almost completely disappears into the role. Those watching the awards even had the opportunity to see a bit of the scene-stealing Sheldon when Parsons accidentally referred to the show’s writers as “my writers.”

"THE writers,” Parsons quickly corrected himself. "'My writers' - how crass."

Go geeks!

    Всем привет! В общем, наверное, люди не зря создают такие темы, даже если просто хотят узнать, в чем смысл жизни для каждого. Как и многие, я зарабатываю с помощью интернета. Пожалуй, немного о себе. Я студент, мне 20 лет. Сначала я закончил колледж (после 9-го 4 года отучился), теперь поступил в универ, сейчас на 1 курсе. Особо универ не посещаю, учусь на тройки, в основном "ухожу" в себя, сижу дома, что-то "придумываю" с интернетом) миллионы не зарабатываю, сео – как хобби=))). Проблема в том, что ни в колледже, ни в университете, я не учусь на ту специальность, которая оч. нравиться. Я – инженер. Вроде более-менее престижно, но – это не мое. И самое интересное, что на КСС-е или програмировании я бы тоже не хотел учиться. Всегда хотел быть врачом. С детства нравиться биология, медицина и т.д. Вот благодаря Интернету, как бы так выразиться, немного успокаиваюсь. Создаю сайты на биологическую тематику, или про медицину, когда вылаживаю материал, сам его "взахлеб" читаю – не могу оторваться. Прихожу в универ – все нудно, все не то. Хотел на зимней сессии бросить, но... не бросил) Живу без отца – только с мамой, которая постоянно твердит, что необходимо иметь хотя бы "корочку". Знаете – ненавижу получать что-то для того, лишь бы оно было. В общем – учусь для родителя)

    Я понимаю, что многие здесь взрослые люди, которые, возможно, в штыки воспримут и напишут "будь мужиком", "ты наверное забыл свои яички в детском садике" (люблю сериал "клиника"=)), но я тоже так думал. Почему-то депрессия, началась больше полугода назад и никак не проходит. Вечно пытаюсь себя чем-то заинтересовать, но в конечном итоге все оказывается не то... Каждый месяц я возвращаюсь в себя и думаю "а все ли я делаю правильно". Ведь в глубине души, каждый хочет делать именно то, о чем он всегда мечтал, но получает то, что нужно. Понимаю, что заниматься любимым делом в наше то время – это что-то на грани фантастики. Но все-равно, люди же находят для себя "нишу" и живут благодаря ней всю жизнь.
    Сопли, сопли... но тем не менее – в чем смысл жизни для каждого, кто прочитает это? К чему Вы по-настоящему стремитесь? Что бы Вы хотели сделать именно в свое удовольствие?

    Maybe it’s a generational thing, but I thought he was disgraceful. There’s no need to rub everyone’s faces in their shortcomings.That’s not humor, it’s insult. It was not appreciated by the live audience either

      I thought some of it was funny,but I agree with you I think he took some of it too far and shouldn't have been said. Spoiling people's night to acheive award for their work isn't good...Maybe that's why he was the host because he isn't doing anything to be awarded for and it shows.

      If by friends you mean people who tell you what you wanna hear, then you're in the wrong place. If you're hear for the truth, Knievel will dole it out for you.
