They also won big ones at the American Film Critic's (I think that's what they're called) Awards a few weeks ago and they've predicted the winner of Best Picture 8 times in the lats 10 years, a similar number for the director as well. I think Walk The Line will pick up at least one acting gong, Philip Seymour Hoffman seems almost a shoe-in for 'Capote' and Kong will get the technical awards.

Yes, yes it did but the 'Drama' category is usually a more accurate predictor of Best Picture (crosses fingers and hopes she's right) that combined with 'Best Director' and I think they've got it in the bag.

You could be right. Actually, who am I kidding, you're definitely right. I haven't seen either but I've heard both are good - I just don't want "Brokeback Mountain" to end up trumping "WTL" simply because of the controversy involved. Not that I'm saying it will I'd just like it to be fair.

But by the same token it would be a shame if Brokeback lost out due to the controversy in favour of the 'safer' film. They're both good but either way people will blame the 'controversy' for the results rather than the merits of teh two films. I'm still not writing off Munich though.

Call me a movie doofus, but who runs the Golden Globes and why do we need them as well as the Oscars?

Golden Globes are for TV as well as film and winners are chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press, rather than the members of the Academy who vote for the Oscars. They are a lesser award but they are fairly important for indicating Oscar victory and are the most important awards for TV. I think.

The Golden Globes are run by 'The Hollywood Foreign Press Association'. The awards are voted for by foreign journalists (including British ones). They work for the biggest magazines and newspapers in the world (apart from the States) and spend their lives reporting on the film industry, interviewing artists and watching films.

You could quite easly argue they are a better group to judge than the sprawling academy, but the Oscars have more prestige.

I'd agree on that, I rarely agree with anything that the Academy chooses to win (Chicago. Chi-fucking-cago!?) but they have slightly more impressive and heavier statues.

Ah, that explains the distinctly indie-leaning shortlist.

Cloony and Weisz are a bit more of a shock, as I haven't heard much buzz about either of their performances

Seriously? Huh. Clooney, definitely, but the buzz on Weisz has been pretty much nonstop over here, far more for her performance than the film itself. I wasn't surprised at all by her win.

It should be noted that the evening's two best speeches by far were from TV winners. (Hugh Laurie and Steve Carell, respectively.)

"If America isn’t watching these films, why are they winning the awards?”"

Maybe because the awards aren't suppossed to be a popularity contest but about good filmmaking?

I haven't read anything that out of the ordinary about her performance in the British press, this is why I try and buy 'Premiere' every month as well as 'Empire' and 'Total Film'. It's nice to get the American perspective on things, plus it's generally a more intelligent read (ours are more fun though).
