70th Annual Golden Globe Award Winners

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: April 2010

filmreel

It’s officially Spring! In another month the summer movie season kicks off but this month there are potential box office hits. Kicking off the month there is “Clash of the Titans” starring Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) and Liam Neeson (“Taken”). Looks like the vampire craze may be moving on, but the Greek Gods are in.

Steve Carrell and Tina Fey star in the comedy “Date Night”, where a simple evening turns into everything but. A possible sleeper hit is “Kick-Ass” where ordinary people become superheroes minus special superpowers. You may recognize Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka McLovin’ from “Superbad” as part of the cast as well as Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage.

Jennifer Lopez returns to the big screen after taking a maternity hiatus in the rom com “The Back-Up Plan”, which ironically has to do with having babies. The film also stars Alex O’Loughlin (“Moonlight”). Before Chris Evans straps on the Captain America costume, he stars in the action film “The Losers”, which is about a team of U.S. Special Ops agents set out on a mission and failure is not an option.

My spotlight pick of the month is “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” which stars Alyssa Milano (“Charmed”) and Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty”). It sounds a cross between “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and the ABC TV show “The Bachelor” but I am a fan of Christopher Gorham and I’ve always appreciated his work.

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