Our Fave New Way to Watch Awards Shows? Live Sketching.
In the last few years, Twitter has changed the way we connect, communicate, share ideas, follow the news, write jokes… and watch television. Who doesn’t love a good live-tweeting sesh? Especially during awards season, when we’re all reacting to red carpet looks and teleprompter gaffes. Last night’s Golden Globes were no different on the 140-character front, but we’ve gotta say, New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly upped the ante. She live-DREW Sunday’s biggest stars.
Lupita Nyong’o’s textured violet gown is perfectly drawn here… as is Colin Farrell’s impressive ‘stache.
Whoever decided to pair these two together was a GENIUS (did you see this photo booth picture?), and this doodle captures their charm wonderfully.
Donnelly NAILED Julianne Moore’s big smile as she accepted the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama.
The caption on this drawing says it all… PRINCE!! Although maybe the rush of live-sketching the show was starting to get to the artist, as she followed up with:
I forgot to give dear Prince his moustache and beard… oh dear. Hope he forgives me. #GoldenGlobes

And of course, the hostesses with the mostesses, the incomparable Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
We’re so impressed by how quickly and accurately she drew these actors. Want to give it a shot once the Oscars roll around? Learn the basics in our Sketching 101 E-Class!
