We tuned in a little late to the E! pre-red carpet awards.

5:30pm the "Live" bug in the bottom corner is distracting, because the sun is blaring on Ted (ugh) Casablancas, but it's already set in real life. Live is a lie, we're on time delay here in California. In fact, we've already heard, via KPCC, that George Clooney has won Best Supporting Actor for Syriana. And Rachel Weisz has won Best Supporting Actress; winners are being posted on the Golden Globes website, which so far has been holding up. Beware, spoilers follow.

5:36pm The E! carpeteers are spending a while talking to two actors from Prison Break, which is on Fox.

5:38pm Wow, from boring to worse. Talking to fans in the stands.

5:40pm An E! correspondent talks to a pair of gay cowboys at the equestrian center. Which is actually kind of funny.

5:44pm The LA Times is posting photos from the red carpet. From which we have borrowed the image of winner Clooney, taken by the paper's Myung J. Chun. Please forgive us.

5:51pm An E! carpeteer tried to navigate the treacherous territory between comedy and drama while describing Desperate Housewives. Dramedy, she says. Not dromedary.

5:53 They talk to Jeff Daniels, who is nominated forBest Actor in The Squid and the Whale. The word "poignant" is used 7 times.

5:59pm Woah, we just checked the Golden Globes site again. Hugh Laurie wins best actor for House! Wow, we're not the only ones who watch House. Who thought playing a grumpy doctor could eclipse Keifer Sutherland and Matthew Fox?

6:07pm Did we catch Isaac Mizrahi trying to out Ryan Seacrest? Is Seacrest in? Someone -- was it Seacrest? -- said that Isaac is the only man "who can make me look butch." Mizrahi gave him shit about how trying to be butch was useless. At 6:09 Seacrest is now babbling about Teri Hatcher's tattoo. Maybe we misunderstood. Maybe we need a drink.

6:02pm More spoilers on that site, but we'll keep mum until we get closer. We'll be back for the broadcast red carpet version, and back again for the show. With something in hand.
