2010 Golden Globe winners & recap

Movie News | By on Jan 18th, 2010

The Golden Globes aired on NBC (Nothing But Crap) last night, and the award show was hosted by Ricky Gervais. He was very funny, as usual, and glad he finally hosted an awards show! I’ve been saying that for years that he needed to host one of those award shows. Since Golden Globes doesn’t really have a host, he was very under-used. His jokes about Paul McCartney and Mel Gibson were particularly great! Avatar was the big winner of the night, winning Best Picture and Best Director. That shocked me because I didn’t think people would vote for that. I thought Hurt Locker or Up in the Air were going to clean up last night.

Christoph Waltz of Inglourious Basterds won for Best Supporting Actor and deservedly so. Jeff Bridges won for Best Actor and that win makes me want to see the movie now. Up won for Best Animated Feature and Score, which I agree with. I loved that movie and definitely thought it was one of the best movies of the year. Which I can’t say the same for The Hangover, which won for Best Comedy or Musical. It’s a clear sign that you can’t take the Golden Globes seriously. Yes, I’ll say it again, it’s a generic over-rated comedy that for some reason, everybody loves except me. Glee won for Best Comedy, which was a head scratcher. Glee over Modern Family or even 30 Rock!? I know i’m sick of 30 Rock winning but Modern Family deserved that award! Mad Men won again, which wasn’t a shock at all since it always wins. Michael C. Hall and John Lithgow won for Dexter, which was cool but I need to see Dexter before making judgment. All in All, some surprises, some not. One thing is for certain, I didn’t think it was a good year for movies. But I’m glad Avatar won some big awards!
