I’ve seen maybe 1/3 of the movies nominated (not including the foreign and shorts) and another 1/3 I’ve heard so much about I might as well have seen it and whatever is left I have no clue about. There are a few things I’m kinda surprised about. No Paul Giamatti nom (he won the Globe) and Eisenberg getting a lead actor nom. Ok, maybe more the latter… I’ve watched a few of his movies (Zombieland and Adventureland come to mind. Funny how they both have ‘land’ in it) and Jesse Eisenberg is good at playing himself… The Social Network wasn’t an exception. Well, perhaps he played a more douche-y version, but still. I’m also surprised that Scott Pilgrim didn’t make it for special effects. That shit was some yummy eye candy. I guess the Academy is full of old farts. But I am happy that Canada made it into Foreign Language with Incendies. 😛
Now that the Globes are over and we look towards the Oscars I thought I’d share a movie mashup I came across a few weeks ago. The music is from one of my favourite bands, Metric (even if it is from a Twilight soundtrack :P) and is an awesome summary of good and bad films that were released in 2010. ^^
It’s Golden Globes day! Fun fact: Keep saying ‘golden’ and ‘globes’ for a few minutes and it loses all meaning. It even starts to sound rather ridiculous. 😛 I’m excited to see what’s going to go down tonight. I suppose that was the purpose for those network execs (or whoever it was) for bringing Ricky Gervais back to host. He turned the whole event into a reality show. Testing waters and pushing buttons. The media on their toes to capture the reactions. Sure it was kinda mean (like that shot at Mel Gibson lol), but for the rest of us down right entertaining. XD I was with Ricky and thought there was no way they’d ask him back, yet here he is! lol I love it. Here’s some highlights from last year in case you missed it. I mean, I don’t want to hype it up too much, but you probably don’t want to miss it this year either. You never know what will happen. 😛
I guess I should mention something about the nominees… Hm, I honestly don’t care that much who wins. I guess I’ll humour myself (let’s face it, I’m the only one reading this lol) and go through some of the categories.
