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.

Spring Movie Season: March 2012

filmreel

How time does fly! It’s already the Spring Movie Season. Certainly there are films this month that are potential movie blockbusters. Films such as “The Matrix” and Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” brought record box office numbers recorded for the month of March. A lot of hype is behind some of the films being released this month…curious to see if they live up to the hype or if they fall short. Opening the month is Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax”, which features the voice talents of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, and Danny DeVito. Eddie Murphy becomes a silent film star in “A Thousand Words”. Murphy’s character has to keep quiet or face the consequences.

Disney presents “John Carter”, which looks like Gladiator meets Planet of the Apes on the planet Mars. There have been pretty good reviews on the film so it may be worth checking out. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill star in “21 Jump Street”, which is an adaptation of the popular late 80’s to early 90’s TV series, which starred Johnny Depp.

Toward the end of the month, the sequel to Clash of the Titans, titled “Wrath of the Titans” is released. Most of cast including Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson return as well as some new cast members. Julia Roberts stars as the evil queen in “Mirror Mirror”, which is one of films this year that is based on Snow White. This summer, Snow White and the Huntsman, promises to be a twist on the classic fairytale.

My spotlight picks of the month are the much anticipated screen adaptation of “The Hunger Games” and from the Academy Award winning writer of Slumdog Millionaire, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”, starring Ewan McGregor (“Moulin Rouge!”) and Emily Blunt (“The Young Victoria”). Both films look intriguing in their own ways.

Well that’s my March 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 Spring Movie Season picks and if you’ve seen any of the films from this month…leave some feedback/suggestions in the Comments section on what to see.

Winter Movie Season: February 2010

filmreel

The big movie hits in February can be found the weekend of Valentine’s Day. In terms of the month, the themes of the month are action/thriller, romance, and fantasy.

Opening the first weekend of the month is “Dear John” which is the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Amanda Segfried (“Mamma Mia”) and Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra”). Two words: Tear Jerker. “From Paris with Love” stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and John Travolta in what looks to be a hit or miss movie.

In my opinion the big hits of the month will be released during Valentine’s Day weekend. Those releases include “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” based on the best-selling series by Rick Riordan, “The Wolfman”, and “Valentine’s Day” which I like to call the Gary Marshall and ABC all-star cast.

Later in the month “Shutter Island” starring Leonardo DiCaprio will be released. The psychological thriller was directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese. For a bit of comedic relief, Kevin Smith’s latest film “Cop Out” will be released at the end of the month.
