Kate and Leo…together again!
KATE WON TWO GOLDEN GLOBES!!
Winslet, who has previously been nominated five times without winning at both the Globes and Oscars, won for her role as a woman in a crumbling marriage in “Revolutionary Road” and as a former Nazi concentration camp guard in “The Reader.”
I was really rooting for Mickey on this one. He’s an oddball, I know. Remember “9 1/2 Weeks”? How ’bout “Diner”? Yeah. It’s the same dude, only 25 years later and 25 plastic surgeries ago. (WHY, Mickey? WHY??) Stop and think about it though. He’s a good actor. “Barfly” with Faye Dunaway? Genius. Even in “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” he was awesome. Just remember…HE’S NOT A MONSTER! He’s a HUMAN BEING. But I still expect all this acclaim to go to his head and he’ll crash and burn this summer. Just sayin’.
“Rourke won for a role as a former wrestling star who gets a last chance at glory in the ring, a theme that mirrors the actor’s life after he derailed his career with bad-boy behavior.
“It’s been a very long road back for me,” said Rourke, who poured out his thanks to “The Wrestler” director Darren Aronofsky. ”
“As expected, the late Heath Ledger earned the supporting-actor Globe for his diabolical turn as the Joker in the Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The Globe win boosts Ledger’s prospects for the supporting-actor honor at the Oscars, whose nominations come out Jan. 22, the one-year anniversary of the actor’s death from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
And now the Beauty Contest:
Wow. Hold on to your hats. Brad looked great. I’m sure he was wearing Tom Ford again. Angelina? What the hell? Did anyone notice that when the camera panned over to their table they NEVER showed her? Did she ask to be completely avoided by the camera once she saw how tremendous the other ladies looked? I can’t imagine NBC would deliberately not show Saint Angelina. Brad was always shown smiling, clapping, chatting…never Angie. Weird. Anyway, she looked dreadful. AND crabby when she lost. Hmmph.
Apparently low-budget movies from India and strapless gowns are all the rage! Again, I’m calling “Slumdog…” to sweep the Oscars.
Among TV categories, “30 Rock” won best comedy series, with stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin (who had a hilarious winning speech) earning the acting Globes in a musical or comedy. “Mad Men” won best TV drama.
