The 65th Annual Golden Globes were announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to a room full of press, not a banquet hall of fashionable celebrities. The writers strike seems to loom overhead even with all the television hype surrounding what boils down to a list of names being called. It’s like roll call in an elementary school classroom, only no one is present to shout, “Here!”

Watching this show was painful. It was extreeeemely bad. No amount of flashy graphics could save that thing.

Amy Ryan was robbed of the Supporting Actress win by a performance where a woman basically played a man. Ratatouille and Javier Bardem got the awards though, as they definitely should have.

Julian Schnabel was probably my fourth choice (out of five) for best director. What a terrible decision and a great example of why the Globes are a total joke. Atonement for best picture? Over the other choices? Hmm, both choices are non-American talent… I guess that’s what you get from the association of FOREIGN PRESS.
