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!!

Hurray to Sweeney and Johnny!

I found it kinda humorous that helena was kinda ignored in any talk about best actress. They're like "she's up against the talented Ellen Page and Amy Adams"

I wasn't happy with the best pic or directer. Coen Bros should have won best director or Tim Burton. There Will Be Blood or No Country should have won best pic drama. And james nesbitt should have won for best actor in a miniseries for Jekyll. That was a chilling and often hilarious performance of Dr.

TWBB

If anybody saw There Will Be Blood and still considered giving a Best Picture award to anything else they should have their head examined. Nice to see DDL get some recognition, although how PTA wasn't even nominated is beyond me.

Largely pleased

Glad to see SWEENEY TODD and Johnny Depp win, after the shunning they've received. A win for Day-Lewis is always great, and I was pleased to see NCFOM win Supporting Actor and Screenplay.

Have to say, Jo, that I cannot disagree more with your take on Blanchett's win. I thought her performance was amazing (and dead-on as Dylan). Amy Ryan was great in GBG, but she has other roles that might get her a win in the next few years--Eastwood's CHANGELING in 2008 and Greengrass' GREEN ZONE in 2009.

That was crap.

CNN & E! aired it for 35 minutes. You can't make a night out of 35 minutes. You can't hold a party for something 35 minutes long. Sports fans know this most of all (hello ppv boxing, looking at you).

Mostly bad

As usual, most of the winners were not my picks but I am glad to see that Javier Bardem, Ratatoille and Johnny Depp won in their categories.

By the way, Scarlett Johansson wins hands down in the best cleavage category
in any year!!!

Some good some bad

Happy that Sweeney Todd got its well-deserved props, but Amy Adams deserved better. Come on, the girl from La Vie En Rose?

Nikki Blonsky's nom was very deserved, and I wish she had her own category. "The fat chick"? Give me a frikkin break man.

Not bad, but...

Nice to see Depp winning something finally, but I wanted to see more wins for There Will Be Blood - can't believe it wasn't even NOMINATED for best director!! I really hope this turns out to be Paul Thomas Anderson's year at the Oscars.

wow, pretty much every movie that i liked lost. nice.

on a side note, i don't really get why people are so nutty about Juno. sure it's sweet and clever and all that, but the clever sort of went overboard, to the point where most of the characters seemed like they had a team of comedy writers slipping them one-liners and snappy comebacks in every scene.

i'm not knocking cleverness in films and i don't have a problem with witty dialogue. we definitely need more of both in today's cinema.

when practically every line is a knee-slapping, pop culture barb, characters that should be cute and likable turn into pretentious assholes.

that tends to make them a bit difficult to sympathize with - at least for me.

Please keep it like this

This was seriously one of the best award shows I've seen. I got home and saw it, then heard Larry King's panel tear into as boring. Don't they realize that four hours of [link] awards is boring.

Hopefully, future shows adopt part of this: just run through the lower awards, then have the big awards (picture, director, actors, screenplay) get the full deal with speeches and all.

JoBlo, I too worship the Coens, but Schnabel deserved it. "The Diving Bell And The Butterfly" was one hell of a movie.

The only ones I really agreed with were Johnny Depp, Dario Marianelli for Best Original Score for Atonement, and No Country for Old Men for its wins. Other than that...a whole lotta suckiness.

I MOSTLY DISAGREED WITH WHAT WON

I think it's a joke that Keira Knightley and Ellen Page lost. And Sweeney Todd over Juno?!?! Come on. I'm happy with Atonement's win for best motion picture drama, it was a fantastic movie, although I did like Eastern Promises better.

My 2 favorite female acting performances were snubbed for Golden Globe noms this year- Naomi Watts (Eastern Promises) & Sienna Miller (Interview). Both were EXCELLENT. I'm glad Keira & Ellen got noms though, because they were up there too on my best list.
