Ah, awards season. It's a great time in Hollywood. With so many awards these days being handed out to doctors, scientists, and educators, it's about damn time they honour millionaire movie stars! But seriously, for movie fans like me, it's a chance to see some great films.
"So where was I?" That was how host Ricky Gervais opened Sunday's 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards, a nod to the controversy that followed his previous year's hosting gig. His inference: he was going to pick up exactly where he left it last year. He wasn't going to pull any punches. Once again, he was going to raise hell. Well, this time? He didn't.
Amongst a largely unexciting group of winners, Avatar stood as the only feature with multiple Golden Globe victories, winning for Best Picture (Drama) and Best Director (James Cameron).
This has been a strange year for television. The writers' strike threw a big wrench into 07-08 TV season, and even relegated last year's Golden Globes to a press conference rather than the booze-filled Party of the Stars it normally is.
The season is upon us... joy to the world! No, I'm not talking about the holiday season -- I'm talking about Hollywood awards season. The Emmys and Grammys always get things started in the fall, early every new year are the 2 big film awards: The Golden Globes and the Academy Awards.
In the most exciting press conference of the weekend -- perhaps even the whole week -- the Golden Globe award winners were announced Sunday night. Normally, the Globes are the "fun" awards show.
The awards season is upon us, and with that comes the list of Golden Globe nominees, announced Thursday morning.
The nominees for the 65th annual Golden Globes were announced on Thursday in Hollywood. In television, there were a few surprises. NBC's The Office, an awards show favourite since its second season, wasn't even nominated this year for "Best Musical or Comedy" -- in fact, only one network sitcom (30 Rock) was included in the five nominees.
