The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards (outcome and thoughts)

The Golden Globe Awards has passed us by and it was ALOT to take in. I kinda wanted to wait a little before posting this blog because I wanted to have everything together.

Blog topics: “Up In The Air was in EVERY category possible, when Tobey Maguire looked pissed the F**k off he didn’t when “Best Actor of the Year” award and most the actors/actoress talked over the limit where they played “the music”.


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
Mo'Nique, Precious

This was the opener for the show with the comedian Mo’Nique winning the award for supporting actress in the movie Precious. Mo’Nique delivered a heartwarming speech telling people that it’s possible reaching this level (award show speaking) and how she told her friend’s years ago it would have eventually happened. This was an emotionally beginning to another wise long night of emotional speeches. I have a feeling that Mo’Nique will be ego tripping for the next few months


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds

To tell you the truth I ended up distracted during parts of the show soooooo I did not catch the whole speech but Inglorious Basterds was a pretty good movie


BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Up
Their really wasn’t much to talk about with this one other then the fact “UP” c.g.i looked amazing and probably was a good light movie to see. But, since I didn’t feel like it or have the money I passed it up…it will be on T.V. in the next year or so anyway.


BEST MOTION PICTURE, COMEDY OR MUSICAL
The Hangover

This was probably one of the biggest surprises to win a G.G. especially with the most talked about musical movie Nine in the category. The whole pack (minus the bigger guy who walked around naked in the movie in every scene) was their including Mike Tyson. I was at first like wtf than really thought about it and I felt it was a pretty good call. The Hangover was a funny movie and it helped the new upcoming actors like Bradley Cooper and Ken Jeong. It was also nice to see Tyson get back on his feet with his kid and career. Let’s see what he does with an award under his belt.


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR AND ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE, COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Robert Downey Jr., Sherlock Holme
Meryl Streep, Julie and Julia

I think I mentioned this back in my last post but I will restate it, Robert Downey Jr. is doing a good job coming back from the drugs and drinking problems. He said this was his 12th career reboot and it looks like its going good. But you never know. Meryl Streep took the best actress which doesn’t surprise me because she’s considered a dinosaur in the movie’s..make the jokes


BEST MOTION PICTURE, DRAMA
Avatar

This was not at all a surprise due to the amount of hype Avatar got within the last month and a half. James Cameron accepted the award and began to talk about how the last 4 years was spent making the film and I have yet still seen it. If it’s like Titanic I hope to god it’s not a 3 movie with about 40 minutes of action cause in 3D.
Finally.. Dada dada dada it’s the BEST PERFORMACE IN A MOVIE or drama OF THE YEAR. WOOOOOOOO yea I’m so hyped….I’m joking

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR/ ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE, DRAMA
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart


Sandra Bullock in my opinion deserved the best actress award due to the fact of how inspirational The Blind Side was. She actually had a nice year especially with The Proposal coming out earlier this year. Jeff Bridges won the best Actor in a movie my reaction? I was like what the? But the one person who look more lost was Tobey McGuire aka Spiderman. He had the look like “ill see you in the parking lot after this” l which I thought was funny as I don’t know what. But I barely remember Crazy Heart which I thought came out like last March…I mean really…REALLY? Jeff Bridges. Ok well let him get this one but I don’t see him getting the Oscar.

Well that about Raps up the Golden Globes I couldn’t cover all the areas let alone T.V. due to the fact it’s just too much in one post. I mean I’m on page 3 of this post right NOW. Out of 5 ill give the awards a 3, it felt a little dry and not hyped up which I guess can be a good thing every once and awhile. So that about does it for this entry for Movies On Deck. By next week ill have a full read out of my thoughts on Avatar (a month after it came out). So go read a book or something.

ahhhhhhhhhhh PEACE

Wow, Earl. I don't really remember the Golden Globes being as big of a deal as it was this year. Award shows are running rampant.

Lots to take in here. Impressive! And very nice organization. Make sure to proofread, though. I think you'll find at least some missing words or punctuation.

Precious (note that movie titles are italicized) is supposed to be a good movie. Sometime when I have a moment (June?) I'll have to check it out.

I like your humor a lot, but it will be stronger when we work on some of the grammatical stuff. Great opinions otherwise.

This years award show had a pretty good selection of movies. I think The Hangover just as anyone else would say was fucking hilarious. It definantly deserved the award for best comedy. UP was a funny one but more of a kids movie. It was porlly the best animated film this year though in my opinoin. I thought some of the movies that won this year werent good at all and others should have won over them. However I cant wait to get started on 2010s movies.
