Things Are Looking Up For Ol' Liz Lemon

"Our competition is not so much other television shows as it is Guitar Hero."
—Classic Lorne Michael's quote in a NYT article today regarding Saturday Night Live's return to the airwaves this weekend after the writer's strike perhaps killed the season's momentum. Cinecultist will definitely be tuning in because the lovely Tina Fey will host and Carrie Underwood is the musical guest.

Blargh, An Hour with Billy Bush. Painful

Some of our favorite performances of the year are getting Golden Globes right now, but Cinecultist is sitting through an hour with Billy Bush and the crack reporting team from Access Hollywood to find out the results. Congrats to Tina Fey, Cate Blanchett, Longford, Jon Hamm and Mad Men, Glenn Close, Extras and La Vie En Rose's Marion Cotillard, who Billy astutely pointed out is more attractive in real life than she was as Edith Piaf. Thanks Billy boy for the freakin' newsflash. Gawd, Cinecultist loathes him. So. So. Much.

Full results are available on the Hollywood Foreign Press site. Read our previous coverage of Longford, Mad Men and Extras. Add them all to your Netflix queue.
