Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a short Palin skit tonight as they talked about the Golden Globe nominations for “Game Change.” Fey said, “I bet if the Governor were here she would say ‘You betcha!’”
Is there anything sadder than two aging hipsters trying desperately to cling to relevancy?
But wait! There’s more:
If there was a major award to be won for her role as Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change” — about Palin’s role in the 2008 presidential election — Julianne Moore has now officially won them all.
Moore won the Best Actress Golden Globe for Best Performance in a Miniseries or Television Film Sunday night, adding to a round-up of statues that includes the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie Emmy, and Best Movie/Miniseries Actress honors at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, as well as a Best Miniseries or Television Film Golden Globe and Outstanding Miniseries or Movie Emmy for the film.
“This was one of my favorite jobs ever,” Moore said in her acceptance speech. “And I’d like to give a shout out to two people who I think made a significant difference in the 2008 election, Tina Fey and Katie Couric.”
In fact, “Game Change” — which debuted on HBO on March 10, 2012 — has been one of the biggest awards show success stories of the last year, winning a total of five Emmys and three Golden Globes for a movie that was based on a book of the same name by political journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.
Funny, but I don’t see a People’s Choice Award on that list. As a matter of fact I don’t recall seeing the DVD for sale or rent anywhere. That’s probably because it didn’t do well in the Neilsen ratings. In other words, unlike Sarah Palin’s Alaska on NatGeo the movie was a commercial flop.
Sarah Palin ran for vice president in 2008. In 2009 she resigned. It’s now 2013.
Some people need to get a grip and get over themselves. Hollywood and the Lamestream Media are seriously out of touch with the rest of us.
