Golden Globe Ramblings

Those dames and fellas over at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did it mostly right this year.
Slumdog Millionaire took home best drama and best director for Mr. Danny Boyle. As well as trophies for score and script. It truly was the best movie out this year, and deserving of these accolades.
Somehow Kate Winslet walked away with both best lead and supporting actress awards. Good for her, she's come a long way since that horrendous pile of garbage known as Titanic.
Heath Ledger walked away with what is likely not his last award for the role that will go down in history to define him, and possibly help redefine the movie villain.
In a surprising dark horse victory, Colin Farrell grabbed best actor in a comedy for In Bruges, which may have been a shock to many just because it was far better than it should have been. Farrell finally proved that he can actually act. Who'd have thunk?
On the TV side, 30 Rock took every award they could qualify for and I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't.
The only vast disappointment of the evening was best comedy movie going to Vicky Christina Barcelona. What a dreadful waste of time that movie was.

But the night was an overall winner with most of the trophies going to people that actually deserve them.
