Monday musing

Okay, so only four of my Globe picks came up trumps, but at least James Cameron had the good grace to reflect that his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow should have won Best Director for The Hurt Locker.

The Globes always make my blood boil and this year was no exception: Streep over Mulligan, and The Hangover over (500) Days Of Summer. Arrgghh!!

Anyway, too much work today to dwell on the idiotic nature of those who vote.

Here's the full list of winners.

At least Ricky Gervais was funny as hell and not afraid to go after every one, esp. Mel Gibson and Hollywood Foreign Press themselves. hah.

It's a shame that the most popular films won in most of the major categories. Not surprising, but disappointing. That being said, Robert Downey Jr. delivered the funniest, most entertaining acceptance speech of the night.

Gibson and the HFPA deserve everything they get.

I actually haven't seen a single frame of the Globes. Should get myself over to youtube I suppose.
