Are you sad today? Even though it is a holiday? Apparently you are not alone:
I enjoyed watching the Golden Globe Awards last night. Here is the listing of the best quotes of the night:
My favorite was from Octavia Spencer, best supporting actress for The Help. "Dr. King said it best: all labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance."
Following is the list of the winners:
Here is my take on the telecast. My favorite winner was the aforementioned Octavia Spencer. She brought humbleness to the award show. I also liked Morgan Freeman receiving the lifetime achievement award. His presenter, Sidney Poitier, brought class to the show. Matt Lablanc's acceptance speech was really charming. Christopher Plummer was a class act. I really didn't like the host, Ricky Gervais. He is an obnoxious, classless, no talent human being best left in the background never to appear in public again. I didn't really like any of the TV awards because they were from shows I've never watched. Why can't Covert Affairs or White Collar win an award once in a while.
I have seen some of the winning movies. The Descendants was a very good movie about end of life decisions. I liked The Help for its acting, period costumes, humor and history.
I plan on seeing The Artist as our friend Shirley has given it some thumbs up. Right now it is playing only in downtown Portland and I am adverse to the cost of parking and the trip down there. I am waiting for it to expand to the burbs. I plan on seeing Hugo, My Week With Marilyn, Beginners, and The Iron Lady.
That is it for the day. Enjoy the holiday, after you Comment Away.
