Whether it’s the alcohol, the hosts who relish taboo jokes, or simply the fact that it’s too early in the awards season for anyone to really care, the Golden Globes are usually a spectacular mess. We checked out the Twittersphere to see what some of Chicago’s most prolific tweeters had to say during the ceremony. From native Chicagoans Pat Sajak and Shonda Rhimes admitting they had better things to do than hit the red carpet to Red Eye's film critic asking how Rush got a nomination, these tweets just might be speaking your mind.
You weren’t the only person rolling your eyes at Ryan Seacrest’s red-carpet questions.
I hate when people ask how much your dress/jewelry costs. If I were one of these celebs I'd just respond "more than your life" #ERedCarpet

Not everyone who worked on a nominated show was sad to miss the event.
Love that I am watching arrivals in sweatpants and no Spanx surrounded by babies! Popcorn and wine come next! — shonda rhimes (@shondarhimes) January 13, 2014
You might have noticed that none of the winners sat close to the stage.

Name one thing that’s better than an awards show.
Hope I'm not nominated for Golden Globe. At Arby's and can't possibly make it on time.

Seeing some of the elderly winners brought back fond memories.
Worked as a restaurant hostess in LA years ago. Jon Voight made me slow dance with him when I seated him at his table. Odd. #GG2014

Others were more impressed by the shows that got snubbed.
I hope Emilia Clarke announces the winner in Dothraki. #GoldenGlobes — Lori Rackl (@lorirackl) January 13, 2014
There were new theories on how an actor can secure a statue.
Fear is that Cranston win will just encourage other actors to sell meth #GoldenGlobes — Steve Cochran (@CochranShow) January 13, 2014
Raise your hand if you saw and loved "Rush." Didn't think so. #goldenglobes

Are the “surprised” winners done with their speeches yet?
You guys, I’m so nervous, I never expected this awards show to end, I haven’t prepared anything #GoldenGIobes
