Was Jeff Bridges high AF at the Golden Globes, or was he just being himself?

76th Golden Globe Awards Press Room

In 2017 and 2018, the winners of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement were Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey. Both women used their moments to make timely political statements in well-thought-out, coherent arguments. The winner of the 2019 DeMille Award did not follow the same pattern. Jeff Bridges got on stage and he just… I mean, The Big Lebowski is a great movie. It’s a cult classic, or simply a classic. Jeff Bridges is brilliant in it. OR IS HE? Maybe Jeff Bridges really IS The Dude.

The question is… how high was Jeff? Or was he drunk? Or was he buzzed on weed AND white Russians? Did Jeff and Chris “Sexual Napalm” Pine smoke a joint in the bathroom or nah? The trim-tab conversation is… something. “Tag, you’re it” is some kind of Golden Globes speech.

    Jeff Bridges is Jeff Bridges, long may he reign.

    Married to the same woman for 41 years and I’ve never heard a bad thing about him. He can come to the Golden Globes as stoned or buzzed as he wants! 😁

    I didn’t think he was high, but maybe? I loved his speech and reference to Buckminster Fuller, although he threw me off at first by saying “Bucky,” But, yes, I’m hoping we’re all trim tabs. It was a bit goofy, but also touching and joyous imo.

    I don’t know what it is, but he gets hotter and hotter. I think he’s always been The Dude and it was goofy and sexy. Count me in on that joint, Jeff.

    He may have been high, but what the viewers saw was just Jeff being Jeff. A happy moment called for some happy talk, as he clearly saw it, so he talked. And talked. Laughed and grinned and reminisced, as if we were all on his front porch shooting the shit with him, barefoot and a beer in hand.

      I loved that about it! It was a sweet and truly, genuinely, earnest thank you! Sometimes it’s just nice to look back at all you’ve accomplished and be happy about it all.

  5. Canber says:

    I think Jeff Bridges’ natural self is perma-high. I love this man.

  6. Tiffany says:

    I made a comment that I was looking forward to Bridges speech for the DeMille…and that I was going to have the munchies afterwards.

    I was not expecting a thought provoking speech from him. He was just gonna be…him.

    This is 100% Jeff Bridges on a Sunday, or a Tuesday, or a Thursday… this guy actually seems like he’s at this level of Zen all the time. I know it seems a little idiosyncratic, but I thought his speech was full of the kind of thinking that geniuses do–kind of out of the box, applying one frame of reference (seemingly unrelated) to another–and instead of just talking about the actors who went before him, thinking about the big picture. And he was completely clear. If he was high, I want some of what he was smoking.

    In other words, the Dude abides.

    Any time I watch the Big Lebowski, I always want a White Russian. And last night, watching him give his speech, I wanted a White Russian.

    His wife is gorgeous.

    I crashed into Jeff Bridges in a restaurant a few years ago (night before my brother’s wedding & I was on the phone with him while he was having a panic attack) I was not looking where I was going and it was clearly my fault. Jeff was charming and delightful and lovely, put me (and my brother) at ease. He really is like that. One of his daughters was with him and she was nice too.

  11. KidV says:

    When Chris came out I thought he looked stoned. Then when Jeff started talking I figured they must have lit one up backstage. They are both fine looking gentlemen.

  12. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Long may he reign.

    I could watch this multiple times and feel just as happy each time that I do. His joy is infectious.

    We’re ALL trim tabs! You, yes YOU!

    Jeff Bridges is just being Jeff Bridges.
    I’d love to spend a day with him; not in a sexy way but just for fun.

    I love that he owns who he is and who he is is NOT AN ASS and why all the Big Lebowski all the time?
    I’m not saying it sucked but that’s all we ever hear about but what about True Grit or Hell or High Water?
    Those are fairly recent and shows J. Bridges being J. Bridges.
    He’s a man’s man!

    I adore him and he’s such a handsome man regardless of his age. I loved him in Crazy Heart.
