The Academy Awards (and Golden Globes)
« on: January 27, 2004, 02:33 AM »
So what'd you guys think of the Golden Globe awards last night?  You into that kind of stuff, or are award shows not your thing?  Oscar nominations are due out tomorrow morning as well.  What are your predictions?  Who do you want to see win?

Here's some of the Golden Globe winners from last night:

Cold Mountain

Director:

Anthony Minghella for Cold Mountain
Peter Weir for Master and Commander

Original Score:
Big Fish Composed by Danny Elfman
Cold Mountain Composed by Gabriel Yared
Girl With a Pearl Earring Composed by Alexandre Desplat
The Last Samurai Composed by Hans Zimmer
The Lord Of the Rings: ROTK Composed by Howard Shore - WINNER

Original Song:
"The Heart Of Every Girl" From Mona Lisa Smile Music by Elton John Lyric by Bernie Taupin
"Into the West" From The Lord Of the Rings: The Return Of the King Music and Lyric by Annie Lennox, Howard Shore, Frances Walsh - WINNER
"Man Of the Hour" From Big Fish Music and Lyric by Eddie Vedder
"Time Enough For Tears" From In America Music and Lyric by Bono, Gavin Friday, Maurice Seezer
"You Will Be My Ain True Love" From Cold Mountain Music and Lyric by Sting



I was excited to see LOTR take home best movie (drama), director, and the score and song awards.  The more hardware for this flick, the better.  Well deserved, and hopefully it'll repeat, along with Jackson as Director, at the Oscars.

I was also glad to see Charlize and Renee win their actress awards.  Charlize was amazing in that Monster role!  Good to see Sofia Coppola get the Screenplay too (not listed here).

My only disappointment last night was Johnny Depp not winning best actor for a Comedy film (comedy?).  Hopefully Johnny will get another shot when the Oscar nods roll out tomorrow.  But Bill Murray has always been insanely funny throughout his career, so I was excited to see him recognized with a GG award.

Should be interesting to see what surprises and disappointments the always interesting Oscar nominations have in store for us tomorrow morning!

Finally, a bunch of award show results I can't argue with!!

I caught a bit of this show on VH1 tonight called 'Best Week Ever', and the had a spot about ROTK. One comedian mentioned something along these lines: " If Return of the King doesn't win the Best Picture Oscar, it's going to make the LA Riots look like kindergarten."

I'm definitely disappointed to not see the brilliant technical acting achievement that is Gollum/Andy Sedakis, not get nominated for Best Supporting Actor.  I thought if a CG character ever had a shot at an acting nomination, it would be him...  Oh well.   :-\

Also shunned:  Cold Mountain, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, and Tom Cruise.   ::)

Since I'm more interested in the entertainment aspect of movies, moreso than the dramatic elements and all that nonsense, I'm pulling for ROTK and Pirates to do well.  If ROTK doesn't at least win best picture and director, I'll be very pissed.  I'd love to see Depp take home the best actor award too, since I loved Pirates, and thought he did an incredible job as Jack Sparrow.  Guess we'll find out in about a month!

As for the Golden Globes awarded the other night - couldn't argue with too many of them really.  Bill Murray's acceptance speech was pretty funny.  Nice to see him win, since comedic performances usually don't get much recognition, and I've loved him ever since his old SNL and Stripes days...   8)

Hope George Lucas is paying attention to Peter Jackson and ROTK's nominations and wins, to see how it should be done.   ::)

Whoops!  Sorry about that!  Thanks for taking care of that JediMAC, as I was just looking for my old thread here to bump it up for the Oscars this weekend.  So what races have you guys interested?  I'm really hoping that LOTR cleans house.  That's just been such an amazing trilogy that I think they need to go out with the ultimate bang, and all the credit in the world, especially Peter Jackson.

I'm with JediMAC and am really hoping for an upset win by Johnny Depp too, for Pirates.  Loved him in that movie!

So what's everyone's picks?  My girlfriend is actually talking about throwing a little Oscar party over at her parent house with a bunch of our friends.  Why do girls always have such a need to "entertain"?   :P

Dang, this reminds me that I need to watch Lost in Translation and I wish I could have seen Mystic River before this weekend.  I think ROTK is a lock for best picture and original song now that Pearl Jam isn't there to play spoiler...its a shame Sean Astin didn't get nominated

My picks:

Best Picture: ROTK
Best Actor: Penn
Best Actress: Theron
Supporting Actor: Robbins
Supporting Actress: Zellweger
Director: Jackson

I watched Lost in Translation last night, great movie, definitely like the way Sofia has progressed as a film maker...agreed that Scarlett Johansson is a definite hotty, Bill Murray is an absolute genius and I would love for him to win but I don't think its going to happen.  My pick stays with Penn as he's been a long time nominee.  The only thing I would say is that he's a huge outsider and that may translate into a mini upset for Murray

As long as ROTK wins a bunch of awards I'll be happy tonight, I enjoy watching the show as long as Whoopi isn't hosting, for some reason I despise her

Murray should and will win tonight.

I like Sean Penn, and he was good in Mystic River--but not nearly as good as

Mr. Bob Hallis!!!!

My favorite thing about Murray is you know he's making stuff up on the fly half the time which makes the people he's acting with smile and laugh at him.

My favorite thing about Murray is you know he's making stuff up on the fly half the time which makes the people he's acting with smile and laugh at him.

Yeah, I hear you.  I've always gotten the feeling with him that he'd just be a cool, down-to-earth, regular guy, that wouldn't be above having a beer and shooting-the-sh1t with you if you ran to him at the local bar.

(And I guess he's my favorite actor now, since Harrison Ford's gone to sh!t over the last decade or so.  That's what my Guzzlefish stats tell me, at least.)

Funny, too--the the two main guys duking it out for the Oscar tonight got their movie careers started in much the same way, by playing dumbasses in some (relatively) low-brow comedies in the early eighties. . .  (one a perpetually-stoned surfer dude, the other, a perpetually-retarded groundskeeper. . .)

And, did anyone besides me see House of Sand and Fog?  What a great (if not horribly sad) movie--with some absolutely terrific performances by Kingsley and. . .  that woman, playing his wife.  Shohreh Aghdashloo.  She might not win tonight, but I hope she does.  

It's a shame that more people didn't see that movie.  It'll probably do better on cable and DVD than it did in the theatres. . .

And, funny, too, with Lost in Translation:  I love it--I've seen it at least three or four times in the month that I've had the DVD.

My mom and dad watched it (separately--they're divorced), and they both hated it, for two different reasons:

Mom hated it because she didn't like the way that the movie made it seem okay for two married people to even think about going outside of their respective marriages (no matter for what reason).

Dad kept asking "what's the point?" and "where is this going?", (along with a few "I don't get it"s) and the only time he laughed was when Bob was having difficulties with the excersize machine.  I think he was expecting more of a standard fish-out-of-water comedy, with Bill trying to get along in Tokyo, and not the drama between two wayward people that it really was.

Regarding the Razzies:

“WINNERS” WILL BE ANNOUNCED SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28

So, what film was the big "winner" last night?

Or rather,

How many did Gigli get, exactly?
