Monday musing

Congratulations are in order to the Sweeney Todd team for picking up the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, and for Johnny Depp for winning the award for Best Performance By An Actor In A Comedy Or Musical. Although the Globes have never been the best indicator for Oscar fortune, let's hope this helps build momentum for Sweeney's Oscar charge and for its wider release in the US and beyond. Congratulations too to the folk behind Longford which scooped three awards yesterday: for Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made For Television, as well as for its stars Jim Broadbent and Samantha Morton. If you haven't seen this Peter Morgan-scripted drama, it's well worth seeking out.

Delighted to see Sweeney got the awards ... shame Helena Bonham Carter missed out though. Still, any win's a good win!


Cheeky question: I've written a review of Sweeney, and am currently in the middle of seeing if I can get any (student) papers interested in it ... I know you're really busy, but wondered if, as the only proper journalist wot I know, you'd take a quick look at it?

Sure.
