My Thoughts

I am not even going to talk about the Television winners because not only was I disappointed in the nominees, but also the winners. I am happy for Boardwalk Empire, Katey Sagal, Claire Danes, and Al Pacino. Let’s just leave it at that.

As for the movies, I can’t say I am disappointed or surprised. I knew it was going to be VERY close between Inception and The Social Network all the way. While I was rooting for Inception in nearly every category, I can’t say that I am disappointed with The Social Network getting these awards. Both are simply fantastic films and deserve every bit of praise they have received – and I fully expect them both to pick up Best Screenplay (Original and Adapted) Oscars this coming month. I am disappointed that Inception was shut out, but I just have to keep in mind that this is only the Golden Globes.

The only category I was disappointed in was Best Actor in a Drama. I thought this would go to James Franco after hearing such praise for his work, but I personally wanted to see it go to Ryan Gosling for his unrecognizable performance in Blue Valentine. Because I haven’t seen The King’s Speech, I can’t say that Colin Firth didn’t deserve this award, he is a great actor.


Anyone have any reactions to the winners?
