And spoilers, so if for whatever reason you haven’t watched it yet and don’t want to know winners – you’re probably screwed, since it’ll likely pop up in your feedreader, on your TV, in your newspaper, etc. But at least I warned you, so there. Golden Globe spoilers after the jump.
Tag: Golden Globes
Okay, I guess the awards themselves aren’t fake, but announced with staccato quickness, reaaaaaally short or nonexistent clips, and no fanfare by Access Hollywood-type hosts, they sure felt fake. In fact, I think I’m going to just pretend that No Country for Old Men and Juno won everything. Except Best Director, which I expected to go to the Coens, but I’m perfectly happy for Julian Schnabel to get it, because The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was perfection. Speaking of which, they didn’t even announce the Best Foreign Film winner! Which was Diving Bell, as it should be. Or Best Screenplay (Coens), or Best Score (Atonement), or Best Song (the one from Into the Wild), IIRC. Color me not a fan of the pared-down broadcast, though I am still glad the actors supported the WGA. But guys, seriously. Settle this thing before the Oscars. I need my overlong, oversappy, overdressed, overhyped, underaccurate award shows!
Oh, and I was also hoping for a Pushing Daisies win for Best Comedy Series, but I’m not surprised it didn’t make it. It would’ve been nice for the hosts to give it some cred, though, instead of fawning all over 30 Rock in EVERY CATEGORY. Not that 30 Rock doesn’t deserve it, I’m just saying. Spread the love. Did anyone see Mad Men on AMC? I didn’t even know AMC was doing series now (I guess this is the first one?). They gave up on doing classic movies properly a long time ago, so I guess they had to do something…
Full list of winners here, among other places, I’m sure.
