KJ's Take:  I am glad to see Scorsese win anything for Departed, he deserves it, that movie rocked.  Forest Whitaker for Best Actor was the biggest lock in as long as I can remember.    I think I agree with Grey's Anatomy for best drama, it's just an amazing show.  Best Picture, Babel?  Don't get me started.

Grey's Anatomy. I am NOT a fan of this at all. Not a good choice. Hugh Laurie winning Best Actor. That makes me smile, he is just amazing as House. Cars over Happy Feet! That is a crime!

Wow Babel? It is a great film, but I am very surprised. Helen Mirren Isn't a surprise. I also am very happy for Martin Scorsese. The Departed was an amazing film. For some reason Pan's Labyrinth really stands out as an excellent movie. I hope the Academy considers it for Best Foreign Film..

Well, I am very happy for Scorsese. I really hope the Academy finally recognizes him for Best Director and for Best Picture. It is about damn time. I haven`t seen Last King of Scotland but I hear Whitaker is really good in it. I also hear Babel is a really good flick. 21 grams was really good, so I like the director. I`ll have to check it out.

I'm not a huge fan of the Golden Globes, but it's impossible to ignore them as a predictor of the Oscars. I think this may finally be Scorsese's year for Best Director at the Oscars. He won a Golden Globe before (for Gangs of New York), but I don't think that film was quite strong enough to carry him for the Oscar win. I think with The Departed, all the elements have fallen into place for Scorsese to win finally win the Oscar this year, and deservedly so. However, as much as I'd like to see The Departed take Best Picture, the race for Best Picture is wide open - we may very likely get a split between Director/Best Picture. The Departed is no doubt a strong contender, but as the Golden Globes just demonstrated, The Departed isn't a shoo-in. OTOH, I don't think Babel will win the Best Picture at the Oscars. While I haven't seen it, I've heard that it uses similar narrative structure of interwoven stories like last year's Crash - and it may be a bit too similar to Crash in that respect to win. Since last year's Golden Globe went to Brokeback Mountain, the Globe voters didn't face that dilemma. With this win, I'd say Helen Mirren has a lock on Best Actress. It's quite a year for Mirren - two wins portraying two different British queens! I hadn't even heard of the Elizabeth I miniseries before the Globe nominations came out. This also positions Forest Whitaker as the lead contender for Best Actor - I don't think he has a lock like Mirren does, but it would be an upset if somebody else wins, given that he's also won the SAG award and nearly every major critic's awards. I haven't seen King of Scotland yet, but I know I always enjoy seeing Whitaker in any role, whether movie or TV.

I'm severely pissed Michael C. Hall didn't win for Dexter. As much as I love Hugh Laurie in House, Hall is just amazing in Dexter. His character is so much more complex than House and he plays it with just the right touch. I was so happy when I saw he was nominated. He deserved to win.

I'm not sure how the foriegn critics opinions got started as a major awards show, but they've nonetheless become the watched forerunner for the Oscars. I happened to watch it last night and you've got to see Sascha Baron Cohen's acceptance speech. It's hilarious and disgusting at the same time. It'll probably pop up on the web somewhere soon. I guess it's just me but there is something very sexy about Helen Mirren I can't put my finger on. I guess if I could put my finger on it I'd find out.

"I'm severely pissed Michael C. Hall didn't win for Dexter." Me too! House is the same House he has been, but Dexter is something completely different and never seen before.

But he was really good at being House whether or not the character changed. So Laurie is not underserving of praise.

BORING! I'd rather watch the People's Choice Award again.
