Time writer Rebecca Winters Keegan kept a diary of her experience covering the Golden Globes press conference last night, asking, "If an awards show happens in Hollywood but nobody famous attends, does it really happen at all?" Her funny chronicle of what actually did happen includes entries such as, "5:15 p.m.: A lone fat guy is swimming laps in the pool area where HBO normally holds its gala," and, "6:23 p.m.: Presenter Mary Hart thanks her agent and hails Viggo Mortensen's 'scary naked fight scene' in 'Eastern Promises.' This news conference is becoming the best proof of the need for writers the WGA could hope for."
