Anne Hathaway's Golden Globe Win Revealed?

Source: Anne Hathaway's Golden Globe Win Revealed? @ Yahoo!

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The Golden Globes are still days away, but Anne Hathaway may already be a winner.

A star indicating that she's won a Globe was found next to her name under the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama, on the award show's Web site on Thursday.

A rep for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association told Access, "In the process of preparing for Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association web team inadvertently marked a nominee as a winner. The mistake was immediately corrected."

Anne's competition in the category includes actresses Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Kristin Scott Thomas and Kate Winslet.

Shame on you, Groucho, to automatically assume that anyone who considers The Dark Knight to be one of the best pictures of the year is also a comic book fanboy with no sense of objectivity or perspective.

I have seen a majority of the nominated films, and am shocked that a movie as pedestrian as The Reader got both a best picture and best director nomination over The Dark Knight. And yes, I am also angry at the fact that The Wrestler didn't get a best picture nomination, nor Gran Torino.

All infinitely better films than the shit that is "Mamma Mia!"
Yeah, I agree. I would really push for the first three. Role Models was surprisingly hysterical. I guess the fact that it's Comedy or Musical means they feel like they have to have a musical. I mean, looking at the nominees:

a. BURN AFTER READING - good but not hilarious
b. HAPPY-GO-LUCKY - didn't see it
c. IN BRUGES - good but not hilarious
d. MAMMA MIA! - didn't see it because it's a joke
e. VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA -solid film but not that funny imo.

I haven't seen Happy-go-lucky, but I didn't think Vicky Cristina Barcelona was that funny. Mamma mia is the only musical, right? I don't know, these nominations for this category seem stupid imo.

Re: 2008 Golden Globes Nominations - Movie Edition

My ideal nominees out of the movies that had a legitimate chance would have been:

DRAMA:
Slumdog Millionaire
The Wrestler
Revolutionary Road
Milk
The Dark Knight

COMEDY:
Happy-Go-Lucky
In Bruges
Burn After Reading
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Vicky Cristina Barcelona

So, I'm 6/10. It's better than last year when I was about 3/12.

You weren't the only one.

Golden Globes gets smallest TV audience in years


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Golden Globes award ceremony reeled in the big stars, but not much of a television audience, viewership figures on Monday showed.

Sunday's awards ceremony on the NBC network, featuring teary acceptances speeches by Briton Kate Winslet and a rare posthumous honor for Heath Ledger, averaged 14.6 million viewers, the second-lowest TV audience since 1995, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Two years ago, the audience was 20 million and last year's ceremony was reduced to a star-free news conference because of the Hollywood screenwriters strike.

Sunday's show, seen as a run-up to the Oscar ceremony on February 22, had a full complement of red carpet stars, ranging from hot teens Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers to hot couples Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

"Slumdog Millionaire" ended the night as top dog with four Globes, but some TV reviewers took exception to producer Christian Colson's apparent use of an obscenity while music was cued in during his best movie acceptance speech.

Mickey Rourke, making a career comeback in "The Wrestler," accepted his best actor Globe with some salty language, while a joke by award presenter Sacha Baron Cohen about recession-hit Madonna laying off an assistant in the form of ex-husband Guy Ritchie was also declared a dud.

But the Hollywood Reporter said the slightly boozy celebrity love fest "delivered with heart, soul and even a little political incorrectitude, proving to be the rare kudofest that left viewers feeling almost satisfied."

The New York Times however disagreed, saying that "a ceremony usually known for high spirits (and lots of wine and spirits) had a brisk, workmanlike feel."

Looks like the Oscars are also going to have low ratings then.

Four plus hours of Hugh Jackman singing and dancing and political statements. I think I'll use that night to take my girlfriend to dinner and drinks.
