Well, now that I've actually caught up a bit on films, I can give an honest reaction to last night's Golden Globes.
BEST PICTURE - DRAMA
REACTION: No argument here. I just saw Slumdog, and it's everything people are saying it is. Uplifting, inspiring, romantic, incredible. Guessed right, I did.
BEST PICTURE - COMEDY/MUSICAL
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
REACTION: Let the joyous news at last be spread: Woody's career's no longer dead! I predicted Happy-Go-Lucky incorrectly, but I am VERY happy with this choice. ECSTATIC.
BEST ACTOR - DRAMA
Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler
REACTION: Rourke, Penn, Langella, DiCaprio and Pitt all turned in some career-best performances. I really would have been happy no matter who won. I predicted Sean Penn for Milk, but Rourke will do just fine, thank you.
BEST ACTOR - COMEDY/MUSICAL
Colin Farrell, In Bruges
REACTION: Called it. Deserved it. Let's move on.
BEST ACTRESS - DRAMA
Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road
REACTION: I dunno. She was good, but this performance just didn't ring true for me. Still, it was great to see her win something, and awesome to see her win everything. I'd give it to her over Jolie, too.
BEST ACTRESS - COMEDY/MUSICAL
Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky
REACTION: Called it. Loved it. Let's move on.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight
REACTION: See above.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Kate Winslet, The Reader
REACTION: Hoo-ah! This is a shock! Two awards in one ceremony? If only she had done a musical this year, too. I'm surprised neither Cruz nor Davis got it, but oh well. Still need to see this one.
Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire
REACTION: I predicted Fincher, but I can't complain. Boyle's the fucking man, man.
Simon Beaufoy, Slumdog Millionaire
REACTION: And I still need to read this one. It sounded great, though! Hurrah!
