2009 Golden Globe Winners

So the much-maligned Golden Globes dished out some hardware over the weekend. What, you were too busy watching NFL playoffs to notice? For shame! The Globes was fantast– oh who am I kidding, I didn’t even know it took place over the weekend, and I actually do this thing for a living! Okay, calling this a “living” is a tad much, but you know, I’m actually supposed to follow this stuff, and even I couldn’t muster the energy to remember it was on last night. Anyways, here’s your full list of winners and losers from the 66th annual Golden Globe awards. Yes, they’ve actually done this 66th time, which means that for the 66th time, everyone in Hollywood took their turn pissing on what an awful and corrupt organization the Golden Globes is, even while they’re lobbying to win one behind the scenes. Oh, Hollywood, you’re so wonderfully two-face.

BTW, how chuckle worthy is it that an organization made up of foreign press people has a category in their awards show called “Best Foreign Language Film”?

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    Come on! The ending of slumdog millionaire sux up the entire drama of the film’s story. Simply this story sux because of the ending. What happened to breaking the so wrong moral principle of choosing money over family? Why did he go back to the damned show instead of breaking away from corrupt settings such as the institution making him choose for money or love, seems like Jamal preferred the cash over a lovely Latika and his brother, whom he clinged on his entire life just about up until the moment he actually wins, he had completely forgotten about him, except when it came to answering the 20million roepi cash money prize question. I almost believed in his potential to stand up for the things he believed in the most the majorit of the movie, to be with the people he cared for. This movie is about money and love, instead of family and love, and yeah it does seem likely to have a happy hero who gets eveything he ever could wish for, but it makes for a character that hasn’t learned a thing during the course of the story’s plot. Maybe he’s thinking it all which makes it for a numbing silent wisdom of the things he learns hidden behind the dead glare of his eyes.. If you ask me, this movie is almost perfect, though almost is the same as saying it didn’t complete suck ass!

    Mickey Rourke was great in The Wrestler, maybe too good… i guess that’s why he deserves the Golden Globe
