Golden Globe winners!

01.14.2008

I just got done watching the "Golden Globes Winners Show", and I gotta say that it was easily one of the best (and shortest) award shows that I've ever seen!! It really gives you a great idea about how much f*ckin' FLUFF they generally add to the proceedings, not counting the winners' thank-yous, of course.

The whole thing would actually have been even shorter (it lasted an hour, as is), if they weren't going over to one of their reporters sitting with a dude from "Entertainment Weekly" magazine every now and again. Now while this was a valiant effort to bring a little more to the show, really...I'm not much into ass-kissing, and that's essentially all they were doing. Even Billy f*ckin' Bush had more swipes than these two people. PS: Nancy O'Dell is a doll! As a movie fan though, I would have loved to have seen a little more real analysis of every other win amongst a group of "pundits" from the movie industry (including the onliners, of course...we exist, man!!), but you can't have everything in life, right?

NOT SO COOL: Cate Blanchett wins (again!) for Best Supporting Actress over folks like Amy Adams (Thank God she didn't win for playing Elizabeth again....yawn!). The show put way too much emphasis on that fat chick from HAIRSPRAY, who thankfully, did not win (and who really pushes over a coffee table when hearing good news?). And how about this Julian Schnabel dude winning "Best Director" over the Coen brothers??? Pulllleazzzeee! No wins for JUNO was also a big surprise (it had 4 nominations).

COOLNESS: Johnny Depp finally gets a win for "Best Actor" in SWEENEY TODD and the film also wins for "Best Musical or Comedy". Even though I was a huge fan of Viggo in EASTERN PROMISES, I think we can all agree that Daniel Day Lewis deserved "Best Actor" for THERE WILL BE BLOOD. And even though NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN lost in the "Best Picture" category, it won for "Best Screenplay" and "Best Supporting Actor" for the great Javier Bardem.

You can see all of the movie-related winners below, or CLICK HERE to check out all of the winners on the official Golden Globes website. Incidentally, even though there were no red carpets this year (so we weren't able to post our favorite pics and captions -- click HERE to check out last year's shtuff), our horny bretheren over at MovieHotties.com were nice enough to slap together a list of BEST/WORST of the GOLDEN GLOBES past, including pictures, of which you can see a few below. And yes, Scarlett Johansson wins for the best ever "golden globes" at a Golden Globes ceremony.

But even more importantly (wink, wink), our very own GOLDEN SCHMOES nominations process will begin next Monday, January 18th and ending on February 1st. Remember that anyone with a free MyJoBlo.com account (register HERE) can start posting their own favorites right HERE, starting next week. This is where the real movie fans get the final word!!
