Earlier this morning, the nominees for the 79th Annual Golden Globe Awards were announced in Los Angeles, and to much astonishment, Hollywood Foreign Press President Helen Hoehner gave way to one of the illustrious Southern Californians to read the first half of the nominations, saying, ” And now to help me announce the 79th Annual Golden Globes nominees, please welcome a special guest… Snoop Dogg.”
The skinny six-foot-four-inch rapper stepped out with a red beanie on his head, an asymmetrical paisley-button shirt, a medium-sized gold medal, and, of course, Locs sunglasses. First, big screams for Snoop Dogg for getting up in time to show up in front of the screen by 6 a.m. He’s a father of four out there, folks.

Of course there were moments of fun, like the way he said it pointing to Actress’s last name is Michaela J. Tag, put… Boom! As if the punctuation marks for a lyrical song.
