I'm really excited to see so many nods for 'Brokeback Mountain' and Woody Allen's latest. The Globes are usually a pretty good Oscar predictor and 'Brokeback Mountain' is expected to clean up (which I may alse have to do after watching it).

There's a film called "The Squid and the Whale"? Man, how did I miss that one?

It comes out in limited release in the US on 26 December; in wide release in the US on 6 January; and in the UK on 27 January.

Haven't seen it, or Brokeback Mountain, yet, but The Constant Gardener was not terrible... Rachel Weisz probably won't win, but she certainly deserves the nod.

It has elements of comedy but it's hardly an all out laugh riot. Very curious.

A lot I haven't seen yet, very interested to see "Brokeback Mountain", "Match Point"... and a few others...

I want Depp to get something for CatCF though. Great performance.

No great surprises here and the big awards are pretty much as predicted. It looks good for Ang Lee come Oscar time with his heartbreaking masterpiece picking up 3 of 'The Big Five'. Cloony and Weisz are a bit more of a shock, as I haven't heard much buzz about either of their performances and I thought Michelle Williams was a shoe-in.

The big boys are suffering though with no joy for Jackson, Speilberg or Allen.

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.

Then again there's no explaining 'Chicago'.
maian
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.

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?
maian
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.
Zoe
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.

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.)

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).

People say the religious right in America are bad, but there's been a gap in the English language which the verb :To homosexualise ( I homosexualise, you homosexualise, he/she/it homsexualises) has just filled.

And I have to say that when I went to see "Brokeback Mountain" a lot of men in the audience walked in there all hetero and walked out with another man's semen on their chins.

Religious groups also pointed to the alleged political agenda of winners including George Clooney, who won for his supporting role in Syriana, a film about the ethical pitfalls of the oil business; and Mary Louise Parker, who was rewarded for her performance in Weeds, a television comedy about a suburban mother turned marijuana dealer.


The agenda of the HFPA is not just to try and turn us all gay - it's to turn us all into a bunch of gay, pot-smoking/dealing, corrupt oil barons!

Hmm I did a Google image search for "gay pot-smoking oil baron" and for "gay pot-smoking oil tycoon" and came up with nothing. Those bastards at the HFPA have obviously got them all hidden away somewhere secret mad.gif

Though I haven't seen either, what I've read suggests that the Drama awards may end up being split between/dominated by There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men.

I'd like to see Viggo Mortenson win for Eastern Promises but Daniel Day-Lewis seems to be the one to beat at the moment so he may miss out.

Ratatouille should fairly comfortably win the animated film category since, even putting aside my love of it, it's still a good deal better than The Simpsons Movie and Bee Movie. Persepolis would probably be the only movie that would have really put up a challenge to it but that seems to have been shunted to the Foreign Language Awards.

I didn't doubt you in the first. I was just surprised that there were so many.

And, yeah, I'd like to see Viggo win, and Javier Bardem was absolutely riveting in NCFOM, so he ought to have a good chance of the supporting actor award...
