The only part I saw was when James and Anne were saying their farely-well to the audience. Did I miss anything good?

Glad Trent Reznor won, and The Social Network didn't. Was Milla Kunis lookin hott, or what?

Chopsaki 2/27/2011 10:39:42 PM

My favorite moments were Melissa Leo's acceptance speech, Sandra Bullock teasing The Dude (Jeff Bridges) for already winning & Jude Law teasing RDJ for getting busted with a hooker. Nice to see Natalie Portman & Christian Bale get some love. Grats Inception especially for cinemetography, Christopher Nolan really should of been nominated for director I mean wtf...

P.S Nice to see something good come from a rather lackluster The Wolfman, grats Rick Baker!

Mila Kunis was smoking up the red carpet.. DAMN!!!

InnerSanctum 2/27/2011 11:20:13 PM

 Didn't watch it.  I think people forget how much of a bore it really is.  I love movies, but we have half a cozen award shows for actors and only one Nobel Peace Prize.  Kind of puts it in perspective.

I think Fincher's directing snub for The Social Network was an ungodly travesty. Tom Hooper's directing just isn't that good. Thank god The Kids Are All Right got shut out of every category.

I couldn't care less about the Golden Globe awards considering they always give the awards to movies that blow

ponyboy76 2/28/2011 4:14:47 AM

You do realize that this wasn't The Golden Globe awards. That was weeks ago. Oscars are totally different.

I haven't seen the King's Speech but heard that it was good. Its good to watch film outside of genre flicks. This movie was going to win no matter what. It has everything the fuktards at the Academy get wet for, Great Brit cast - check, true story that hasn't been told - check, peroid piece - check, good with the geriatric demographic - double check

It was good see Chraitian Bale and Natalie Portman win. Also cool to see Renner nominated for tThe Town, which I thought should have been at least nominated for Adapted Screenplay, even best picture.

I figured Inception would win all the technical awards as the great genre flicks usually do. They continue to be passed over in the more prestigious catergories.

How does Toy Story 3 win over How to train your dragon???

I'll never understand Hollywood.

From all the winers, this is the only one I feared would happen and unfortunatelly, it has happened.

Happy for Christian Bale and Nathalie Portman.

Hobbs 2/28/2011 5:35:17 AM

Because Toy Story 3 was better than Dragon jedi.  Though that's not a knock against Dragon, I enjoyed it but Toy Story was much better.

and that's not fair rock, the awards don't always go to the movies that blow.  See Return Of The King...though Fellowship and Two Towers should have won as well but oh well.
