Sorry if you missed last night's Golden Globes awards ceremony on NBC. Mostly because, well, this is probably your first look at Mad Men's Christina Hendricks and her digs from last night. (Daaaaaaaaaaamn!)

But also because you missed this: Fort Worth native T Bone Burnett walked with the Hollywood Foreign Press' prize in the Best Song category for his work with Austin's Ryan Bingham on the theme song from Crazy Heart, "The Weary Kind."

And that probably would have been the highlight of Burnett's night, too, had Meryl Streep, upon winning her award as the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, not announced to the world that she wanted to change her "name to T Bone. T Bone Streep."

Can't get much higher praise than that, I don't think.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
