The Golden Globes are getting predictable, eh? I didn't watch the ceremony, but I was happy to hear that Bill Murray won the best comedic actor award. I was also happy to read that The Office won the awards for best TV comedy series and best TV comedy actor. I wish Showcase or CBC would pick that series up...I still haven't seen the second season.

I'm going to risk the ire of many in suggesting that LOTR:TROTK didn't deserve the best picture award. I loved the film, and actually enjoyed the multiple prologues, but I am a huge Tolkien fan. I can't see someone who isn't familiar with Tolkien sitting through the various endings without squirming in their seats a little. I would've put my vote in for either Cold Mountain or Mystic River.

One little question, though: Was Lost in Translation a comedy? I would call it a drama. Just because the lead character was a funny guy doesn't mean the film was a comedy.

Geeks rejoice!!! Bodes well for the Oscars.

I'm happy ROTK won, even though it's only the truncated theatrical cut (the real ROTK won't be out till the extended DVD arrives). 'Course, I haven't seen any of the other nominated films, so what do I know?

I imagine award-show voters are rewarding ROTK not just on its own merits but in honour of the trilogy as a whole.

There was an Op-Ed today that said the charactures of the Japanese in the movie was racist.

It's not out over here yet so I haven't seen it.

You mean Lost in Translation. And you mean [SPOILER ALERT! Don't follow this link if you hope to see and enjoy this movie] this opinion piece by Lysiane Gagnon.

Sadly, the movie only works for people who have a sense of humour. Even though it's more drama then comedy.

The GG's are an interesting variation on the theme of the televised award show. The awards are voted on by only about 90 people. Unlike the People's Choice thingy which is hundreds of thousands of people from all across the trailer parks, the GG voters are almost all entertainment journalists. And unlike the Oscars, where each award category is voted on by hundreds of industry peers who work in similar jobs.

The GGs have no axe to grind and no favours to request.

It's little known, but the Golden Globes are actually an industry joke, and golden publicity. With few exceptions, the voting "journalists" are bottom feeding celebrity hounds working part-time who no one's ever heard of, writing for mainly obscure journals. They get interview time with celebrities and free junkets to prestigious festivals. They have no credibility as professional journalists or critics.

Maybe some caught the tongue-in-cheek CBC expose, aired on Newsworld prior to the ceremony.
