"American Hustle," "12 Years a Slave" top the Golden Globes
It was a stellar night for the Globes, with “12 Years a Slave” taking the top drama award, “American Hustle” being honored for its acting and a much-deserved send-off for “Breaking Bad.”
With the Globes being the Globes, there were plenty of bizarre moments (Jacqueline Bisset, we’re looking your way) to accompany the plentiful booze.
And of course, photobombs:

This Throwback Thursday, we’re taking you back in time at the happiest place on earth. Yes, we’ve dug into our archives and found some old Disneyland photos, including some of Walt Disney himself (seen in the middle photo inspecting plastic heads for a “Pirates of the Caribbean” addition to the park) and then-Vice President Richard Nixon (shaking hands with a man in a spacesuit in the bottom photo).
But perhaps the sweetest and most surprising story is behind the top photo. It’s of 14-year-old Jong Sook Kim visiting Disneyland in 1964. She was from South Korea and was in America to get surgery on her eyes — doctors once thought she’d never see again. After the operation in San Francisco, she went to see Disneyland with her newly restored sight.

Shirley Temple Black has died at age 85.

The beloved child star of films like “Bright Eyes,” “Curly Top” and “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm,” she was Hollywood’s reigning box-office champion from 1935 to 1938.

After she retired from acting, she went on to a career in diplomacy, with posts that included ambassadorships to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.

She died at her home in Northern California.

If you’ve ever been to the TCL Chinese Theatre (formerly Mann’s, originally Grauman’s), you’ve probably walked over the handprints and footprints of Hollywood stars imprinted in the concrete. They’re a big tourist draw — you can see the stars’ signatures and compare your hands with the hands of the people on the big screen.
But the very first one was an accident.
The tradition was born after actress Norma Talmadge accompanied Sid Grauman — the theater magnate who was opening what is now a famous landmark — and other Hollywood stars to the site of the theater in 1927. At the construction site, Talmadge accidentally stepped in wet cement.
"When Grauman saw this, it gave him the idea of creating his own special hall of fame," a Feb. 3, 1958, Times story on a $400,000 renovation of the theater recounted.
That makes the handprint tradition older than the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That idea came about in the 1950s, with the first star set into the sidewalk in 1960.

"When I open a refrigerator door and the light goes on, I want to perform."

Mickey Rooney, one of the top Hollywood stars of the 1930s and ’40s, has died at 93. 

Rooney’s career as a performer began when he was just a toddler; high points included 15 appearances as the title character in the popular “Andy Hardy” films, a series of movie musicals with Judy Garland and a costarring role alongside a young Elizabeth Taylor in “National Velvet.” Into his 80s, he was touring in a 2-person show with his wife, Jan Chamberlin. At age 90, he testified before Congress on the issue of elder abuse, which he said he had experienced personally.

“Tennessee Williams, who knew more about actors than anybody in our time … said, ‘There’s only one great actor in the United States and that is Mickey Rooney…. He can do anything. He sings, he dances, he can make you weep. He can play tragedy, he can play comedy,’” author Gore Vidal once said.

He’s shown here watching Judy Garland put her handprints in the cement at the theater then known as Grauman’s in 1939. This photo was published in the L.A. TImes on Oct. 25, 1939.
