Globe Winners

Globe Winners

indieWIRE has them listed here.

I watched the NBC telecast for the first 20 minutes, horrified by Billy Bush’s unnecessary commentary (who gives a shit if you think Amy Ryan should have won? did you just call Damages a great movie?) and devastated by the full realization that this is what it had come to. Then switched to CNN, where I could watch the actual announcement (NBC did their “own”, which was truly garbage). While it wasn’t much better (couldn’t they get some actual celebs? Mary fucking Hart is the biggest one they had), it at least was done in order (fuck you, NBC, for making me find out Ellen Page lost on a website). I kept picturing speeches and moments as the lamecast whizzed by (Tina Fey‘s speech!). Anyway… whatever, its done. And theres nothing I or we or anyone can do.

The winners were not too shocking (though my predictions blew, especially in TV.. see two posts back). Atonement‘s best pic was a slight surprise, Diablo Cody losing to the Coens for screenplay and the Coens losing to Julian Schnabel for director were genuine surprises. But what is interesting, and I noted this on the main iW site:


Oddly, many predict that both of the Globes best picture winners (“Atonement” and “Sweeney Todd”) might not find themselves among the Academy Award nominees for best picture. If “Atonement” and “Sweeney” are overlooked by Oscar, it would be the first time since 1955, when “Guys and Dolls” and “East of Eden” won in the two categories, that this has happened.

The odds are pretty good.

Anyway… Im putting this behind me now. Packing parkas and boots for Sundance. Hoping for an actual Oscar night. Playing Scrabulous. Everything’s fine.
