Golden Globes not so Golden

sweeneytodd.jpgWell, the Golden Globes weren’t so golden this year because of the writers’ strike. Alas, the awards weren’t televised because many stars stood in solidarity of the striking writers, and decided not to attend. Let’s hope the writers’ strike can be settled soon, so we can enjoy our Hollywood eye candy and see our favorite shows again. It is heartbreaking, but least there was a silver lining; we didn’t have to see yet another homemade Home Ec sewing reject outfit from the likes of Kim Basinger or Geena Davis.

Here are the winners of the Golden Globes:
Film Category
Best Motion Picture, Drama:
“Atonement” (See Keira Knightly perfect her gaping mouth look).
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama: Daniel Day-Lewis in “There Will Be Blood” (He really is a good actor. Nice to see him making movies again).
Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama: Julie Christie in “Away from Her” (And oldie, but goodie).
Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: “Sweeney Todd” (Definitely a cut above the rest).
Best Actor, Musical or Comedy: Johnny Depp in “Sweeney Todd” (Depp seems to get great kudos in movies where he gets to use sharp objects…savvy).
Best Actress, Musical or Comedy: Marion Cotillard in “La Vie en Rose” (Edith Piaf personified).
Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Cate Blanchett in “I’m Not There” (Wow, from playing an elfin queen to Bob Dylan, this actress has a mighty wide range)!
Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Javier Bardem in “No Country for Old Men” (Anybody but John Revolta and an Affleck is fine by me. With that said, though, Javier Bardem is an incredible actor. I hope we’ll see more of him in future mainstream Hollywood movies).
Best Director: Julian Schnabel for “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”
Best Foreign Language Film: “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” (France)
Best Screenplay – Motion Picture: Ethan Coen and Joel Coen for “No Country for Old Men”

Best Actress, Drama Series: Glenn Close in “Damages”
Best Series, Comedy or Musical: “Extras”

Best Performance by an Actress in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television: Queen Latifah in “Life Support”
Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television: Jim Broadbent in “Longford.” (Kudos to Broadbent. He’s an excellent actor. Who could forget him for his portrayal of Harold Zidler in “Moulin Rouge!”)

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television: Jeremy Piven in “Entourage”
