70th Annual Golden Globe Award Winners

Source: Hollywood Foreign Press

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place on January 13, 2013. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the event. Their opening monologue was quite funny and started off the night well. Stars of the small and big screen gathered and even former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, made an appearance in order to introduce one of the Golden Globe nominated movies, “Lincoln”. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone presented the award for Best Foreign Language Film, but before it was presented they bantered on which of them was the worst actor. The film that won was “Amour”, which hails from Austria and Schwarzenegger was able to present the award to a fellow countryman.

Robert Downey Jr. presented the Cecil B. DeMille award to this year’s recipient, two-time Golden Globe and Academy Award winner, Jodie Foster (“The Accused”, “Silence of the Lambs”). Foster’s career has spanned five decades and her speech was very heart-felt as she spoke about her personal life and professional career. She started off her speech quoting a line from a SNL skit, which was made famous by former SNL star Molly Shannon. Foster ended her speech with, “Here’s to the next 50 years”.

As for the awards in the Motion Pictures category, “Les Miserables”, walked away with the most awards including Best Supporting Actress – Anne Hathaway, Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy – Hugh Jackman, and Best Musical/Comedy. In the category of Motion Picture – Drama, “Argo” nabbed the honor of Best Picture – Drama and Ben Affleck won Best Director. Affleck’s Oscar snub is now even more intriguing since the film won a Critics’ Choice Award and now a Golden Globe and he has won the directing award at both of these award ceremonies. More Critics’ Choices went on to win tonight including, Jennifer Lawrence – Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for “Silveer Linings Playbook”, Jessica Chastain – Best Actress in a Drama for “Zero Dark Thirty”, and Daniel Day-Lewis – Best Actor in a Drama for “Lincoln”. Day-Lewis is also nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, could this be the role that gives him his third Oscar?

In the Television Category, “Homeland”, earned the most awards including Best Actress in a TV Drama – Claire Danes, Best Actor in a TV Drama – Damian Lewis, and Best TV Drama. HBO series, “Girls”, won two awards including Best Actress in a TV Comedy – Lena Dunham, and Best TV Comedy or Musical. In the Miniseries/TV Movie category, “Game Change”, won three awards amongst which was Best Miniseries or TV Movie.

Winter Movie Season: December 2010

filmreel

Winter is almost upon us and the holiday season approaches. So what films will light up the holiday season? The month kicks off with Natalie Portman starring in Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan”, where dance can take a dark turn.

Mid-month is when some of the bigger movie releases are going to emerge. The third installment of the “Chronicles of Narnia” franchise, “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” takes flight. Academy Award winner, Helen Mirren, stars in an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” while Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie star in the thriller “The Tourist”.

Getting a head start over the Christmas Day movie releases we have Disney’s “Tron: Legacy” (in 3D) which is sure to be a big hit, the movie adaptation of the popular cartoon Yogi Bear, and the rom com “How Do You Know” starring Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line”) and funny men, Owen Wilson (“Wedding Crashers”) and Paul Rudd (“I Love You, Man”). As for the Christmas releases we have the latest film with the Fockers, “Little Fockers”, the new adaptation of “Gulliver’s Travels” starring Jack Black (“School of Rock”), and the Coen Brothers’s “True Grit”. Also Academy Award winner Gwyneth Paltrow stars in “Country Strong”, which opens as a limited release but will expand in January 2011. The film has also been generating some Oscar buzz.

My spotlight picks of the month are “The Company Men” and “The Fighter”. Mark Wahlberg (“The Italian Job”) and Christian Bale (“Batman Begins”) star in “The Fighter” which is gaining some Oscar buzz as well as “The Company Men”. Although both films have similar themes as other Oscar nominated films being “Rocky” and “Up in the Air”, they both seem to have a special quality that may be worth checking out.

Well that’s my December overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for more Winter Movie Season picks.
