My circle of queens is really torn. Anne Hathaway was undeniably brilliant in ‘Les Miserables’. Point. Taylor Swift dated Jake Gyllenhaal. Point. Anne looked like a shining, professional star while hosting the Academy Awards, but couldn’t anyone next to dum-dum James Franco? Half point. Tay-Tay got interrupted by Kanya West and I reeeeeally hate Kanye West. Half point.
However, the way Anne acted at the Golden Globes was completely insane. What an obnoxious, phony-bologna, princess. She reminded me of every self-important girl in high school theater that just HAD to have ONE MORE THING to say at the microphone. After receiving her award and making her speech, she elbowed herself in front of the ‘Les Miserables’ producers when they won Best Film to continue thanking everyone she didn’t have time to thank in her first speech. The nerve! Even when she’s being genuine, I feel like it’s an act. Sure, she has a gay brother and she really really really loves the gay community and she’ll make sure to talk about it over and over again as long as she’s on camera. I don’t doubt she’s genuinely supportive, but criminy! I bet Lea Michele wishes SHE had a gay brother! (don’t even get me started on that one – ok one thing – Lea Michele was doing shampoo commercials during the Golden Globes while Anne was collecting her prize. I bet that makes Lea crazy!)
I first heard of Taylor Swift when she won some award and Kanye West interrupted her to talk about how she didn’t deserve it. I felt so bad for her! But how long ago was that and have I listened to a full song of hers since? Over three years and no. She threw an icy death eye at Adele at the Golden Globes and then left early after she didn’t win. Word on the street is that since she was passed over for the role of Eponine in “Les Miserables” she didn’t want to hang out. Oh gee. Poor Tay-Tay had to suffer through a slightly awkward awards show that she had the great honor of being nominated at for creating music. It must be really tough to make money doing something that you love and have people praise you for it. Speaking of her music – IT SUCKS!! And she’s, like, best friends with Justin Bieber. Lametown. And how many celebrity boyfriends has she had and how long were those relationships? Pull yourself together, gurl, before your huge fans in middle America realize you’re not country music.
Now that I’ve thought about it, I have my answer. Anne Hathaway may be super annoying, but she’s had genuine moments of art that I have appreciated. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, barf. Its not that Anne Hathaway wins, but that Tay-Tay loses. Who do you think?
