Marion Cotillard - La Vie En Rose One of the most astonishing performances by any actor I've ever seen.

And personally I think that the dresses and who came with who is the only reason why anyone cares about Golden Globes. It doesn't really have the prestige of Oscars or even SAG awards.

When that category came up I thought to myself, if the Globes have any shred of integrity whatsoever, the award must go to Cotillard although I personally think it was in the totally wrong category. It should have been best actress in a drama. It wasn't a frigging comedy or a musical!

Can someone please stuff a sock in Mary Hart's mouth already?

Anyway, I think that all awards ceremonies from here on out ought to be handled this way. Short and sweet.

Not only was it not a musical, but Cotillard was lip-synching to Piaf's recordings. It's nice that she was able to get recognized, because I'm not entirely sure she would have beat Christie in the dramatic category.

Believe me, you didn't miss much. I got home and turned it on about halfway through. I could only watch for 3 or 4 minutes before i said "fuck this shit" and looked up the winners online.

Eddie Vedder winning was great! I'm bummed i didn't get to see him give a speech. Love him!

they really need to put this writer's strike to bed before the oscars.

I think it's difficult to compare these two performances, because they're different types of acting, imo. Christie's performance in 'Away From Her' is a much more subtle and understated performance for the most part, whereas Cotillard's performance in 'La Vie En Rose' was a more typical tons-of-emotion flex-your-acting-muscles type of role. I think both styles were exactly what was needed/required of their respective roles, and I think both actresses were superb, but I think the contrast in styles there makes them hard to compare.

However, just going by the gut instincts I had after each film, Cotillard wow-ed me more.

I can't make a good argument why any winner in any category is a bad choice.

It does seem that there are often Oscar winners that I think win for the wrong reasons.


So these Globes look pretty good to me.

I especially like how the T V winners came out.

Mad Men is outstanding,
and most likely will be overlooked in the other Award shows.


Marion Cotillard - La Vie En Rose

it will be interesting to see what the Academy does here.

It'd be nice if the strike were to end soon, but if the two sides aren't even talking I don't see that happening before Oscar time.
