I’m a senior in my spring semester of college — which means in lamens terms… I choose binge drinking over a lot of other activities such as watching the Golden Globe’s for instance. I did, however, check feverishly through the red carpet dress line up as well as the nominations and winners on the official website. I will say, some of the winners I am not surprised about, others very much so. I thought I would go through some of the awards and share my thoughts on the thumbs up or the thumbs down.
BEST MOTION PICTURE — MUSICAL OR COMEDY:
THE HANGOVER??? I get it, it was funny. I have seen it time and time again but that shouldn’t have won a GOLDEN GLOBE for god sake. I think 500 Days of Summer should have won, clearly I’m biased — a long time child hood friend directed it, but still!
BEST TELEVISION SERIES — DRAMA:
MAD MEN: While I do like M.M. and I think it is brilliantly written I think the other nominees were just as amazing and to be honest, I think this season of Big Love should’ve won this instead. All of the nominees were solid candidates so I won’t say this one is a total disappointment, however, I love Big Love and feel a bit let down.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL OR COMEDY:
TONI COLLETTE: UNITED STATES OF TARA: Here’s the thing, Lea Michele on Glee should have won this with her eyes closed I am NOT a happy camper about this — I wanted her to have a breakthrough Golden Globe award to take home at the end of the night. She was unbelievable on Glee and really was the glue to the whole show, so in my eyes, this was a disappointing loss for Lea.
PREDICTABLE WINNERS/ AWARDS I’M HAPPY ABOUT:
BEST PERFORMANCE BY ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES
CHLOE SEVIGNY FOR BIG LOVE: I loved her character’s development this season: she was bitter, controlling, and independent — loved her and her portrayal of the frustrated 3rd wife. I also love how her character cheats on Bill Paxton, he’s boring and is beginning to have erectile issues — I’d be out of there too!
BEST PERFORMANCE BY ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES
JOHN LITHGOW FOR DEXTER: yes yes yesss! He was SO creepy and added so much intrigue and depth to Dexter this season. Who knew Lithgow could be so scary?
BEST TELEVISION SERIES — MUSICAL OR COMEDY:
GLEE: BEST AWARD OF THE EVENING in my opinion. What amazing breakout show — it’s refreshing, and brilliant. I love the fact that it doesn’t conform to the “blood sucking trend” and goes for the feel good plot line.
