Yeahhhhhhhhhhh hope you really like it!
Inception getting shot down is just sad...I was expecting it not to win Best Picture.. but no Best Director or Best Screenplay? The Social Network is a great movie, I'm a huge Sorkin fan from all his TV Series (yes, that includes Studio 60, and I won't apologize for it) but Inception was the only movie last year that made me keep talking about it weeks after I saw it, and tell anyone who ask, "Yes, that is a movie, you NEED to see." I think its downfall is going to be a result of the negative backlash consequence of the initial positive overhype. :(
Molds, Social Network's not bad. I actually just saw it last night and enjoyed it. But Inception was better.
Inception was amazing, but I always knew it wasn't going to win because of the "blockbuster" concept. It seems like movies that the general public LOVE the critics/press/academy members seem to vote against. Another issue was the summer release. It would have had a better shot if it was released in October-December.
[QUOTE=tatertots;232258]That was such a joke category. What about Get Him to the Greek, Easy A, Kick-***, Scott Pilgrim? Those were all much better than the others nominated.[/QUOTE] Scott Pilgrim definitely deserved a win. That movie, visually alone, was one of the best that I saw all year and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is going to be around for a long time. I wish Michael Cera would go away, though. Also, Robert Downey Jr. stole it when he presented. I high fived him from my livingroom. I love that Peg Bundy won a Golden Globe and the shy girl from My So Called Life did, too. That and the guy who died third in the original Nightmare on Elm Street is doing really well for himself these days. Don't get me started on Trent Reznor, though. No way can he pull off another Nine Inch Nails album after that acceptance speech.
[QUOTE=molds13;232249]Have you seen The King's Speech? I've heard that Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter were absolutely fantastic in it.[/QUOTE] Yes, it was really really great and both Carter and Firth were absolutely amazing in it . That's why I had no problem with Firth beating out Mark Wahlberg ( He deserved it a lot too though, no lie) and winning tonight for his performance in it.
What did everyone think of Ricky Gervais? I thought his jokes were great but the crowd didnt seem as receptive as last year.
Also, what was said between Christian Bale and Robert De niro ? I didn't get to see it. And what was with De Niro's acceptance speech ? Did anyone hear it ? Edit : Nevermind on the De niro/Bale thing, I already found out.

[QUOTE=Insider;232282]Share. I missed it.[/QUOTE] Bale just told De niro how much he respects him and that he was very honored to be in the same room as him. The acceptance speech from De niro was just kind of weird and I would imagine awkward... here it is [url]http://blog.moviefone.com/2011/01/16/robert-de-niro-golden-globes-speech/[/url]
[QUOTE=molds13;232141]How in the hell is Alice in Wonderland nominated for a Golden Globe? I thought it was awful.[/QUOTE] I liked it...which I guess makes me the only one. [QUOTE=molds13;232151]Did anyone else cry out loud when they realized Bieber cut his hair? Because I did.[/QUOTE] I think he actually looked 13 this time and not 12. [QUOTE=Buck05;232193]Glee winning Best Comedy/Musical was the first award I disagree with so far. Only because I'm a huge fan of Big Bang Theory and Modern Family...and think both shows are better. But that's just me.[/QUOTE] I thought for sure Modern Family was going to win after it won at the Emmy's. Although I really do love Glee so I wasn't disappointed. I would have preferred Big Bang to win. [QUOTE=producer88;232223]I hope Social Network wins Best Picture...that was literally the best movie of 2010[/QUOTE] I've yet to see it, so I really didn't want it to win. I've heard so many great things about it, but it's definitely not something I really want to see. I'm kind of hoping it doesn't win the Oscar...
OK, so The Social Network wasn't bad, but I'd hardly consider it the best film of 2010.
Really Molds? For some reason I thought you would have loved it. Well to each their own I guess. I just loved the message of going after what you want no matter the cost (with the exception of betraying your friend). I believe the movie was just overall perfect great acting, directing, screenplay (every word used perfectly & had a purpose), the drama mixed with comedy "you gave chicken chicken?" lol it's amazing
I was happy to see Boardwalk Empire win best drama (along with Buscemi taking best actor in a drama.) It is an amazing series, although not for everyone. I'm personally looking forward to season 2.
Oh, and [URL="http://cdn01.cdn.thesuperficial.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/0117-golden-globes-16-480x720.jpg"]January Jones[/URL] gets my vote for best dressed (if my vote counts for anything, heh.)

[QUOTE=llcooljonas;232318]Robert DeNiro can say anything he wants in an acceptance speech, because he's Robert ******* DeNiro.[/QUOTE] I kinda agree with you but the speech itself just made Robert De niro look like he was trying too hard to be funny. Robert De niro should probably have some words with whoever it was that came up with that speech.

[QUOTE]"Ricky will not be invited back to host the show next year, for sure," a member of the HFPA tells me, adding that Gervais' relentlessly mean shtick could have even larger consequences. "For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated. He humiliated the organization last night and went too far with several celebrities whose representatives have already called to complain."[/QUOTE] [[URL="http://***.********.***/2011/01/17/ricky-gervais-banned-golden-globes/"]via[/URL]]
I'm sure Ricky Gervais [I]really[/I] cares about not being nominated for a Golden Globe. He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight.

I'm pretty sure Ricky Gervais wasn't in danger of a nomination anyway.
People need to learn how to take a joke.
[QUOTE=RMD1;232373]People need to learn how to take a joke.[/QUOTE] What was it that Ricky Gervais said that got everybody so ticked ? Edit : Nevermind, just followed that link on last page and I read it.
[QUOTE=RMD1;232373]People need to learn how to take a joke.[/QUOTE] My thoughts exactly. I didn't find anything he said outrageously inappropriate. He was just poking fun at Hollywood and the Hollywood Foreign Press. He said it to get people to laugh and add some pizazz to a rather dull evening. That's why he was hired in the first place, to add some comic relief.
This is ridiculous...Inception was a way better competitor, ehm, I mean movie than The Social Network. But seriously, I loved both movies and would not be able to decide which one is better, especially because they are so different. I'm also sad that Mila Kunis did not win, but have still hopes for her at the Oscars.

I've searched the depths of twitter and have finally found the tweet that sums it all up. Yup, we have a winner! [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=8815][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/14d35a0ef81c47.jpg[/img][/url] Ok, ok, I found it on reddit...
