2011 Golden Globes


Recommended Posts

Last night was the 68th annual Golden Globes


Host: Ricky Gervais. Some people say he was too harsh, some people loved that he popped some elite bubbles. I think he was OK. He's not part of the Hollywood game and he let it be shown. I chuckled at most of his comments.


Red Carpet: I don't always agree with Best & Worst lists...my picks for best were Sandra Bullock, Eva Longoria (although she almost ate it walking to the podium), Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, Tina Fey, Scarlett Johannson, Michelle Williams, & Natalie Portman. Worst was Helena Bonham-Carter. We get it...you are artistic -- but? Also on the blech list was Gabourey Sidibe, Tilda Swinton & Julianne Moore.

Yeah, I was surprised how it was almost a sweep like that.


I would've thought that either Alice in Wonderland or Inception would get it for film score


I am used to movies that I didn't see winning all the awards, but it did boggle me. Apparently its a really good movie... :blink:

i hope so too...it was so weird seeing him accept an award, but definitely deserved.


the social network was a very well-crafted and engrossing movie, though i still think inception was a better movie overall.


i think the most overdue award went to christian bale. it's about damn time!
