God is George Clooney hot...i wish i could really see him up close..
adele, proof that money cant buy happiness but pints of Ben and Jerry's sure can.
IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THAT ONE 9 YEAR OLD
Well the music world is offically over. Adele somehow won a golden globe. The only redeeming factor for the song is that it's related to James Bond. How was this possible?!
i don't get it...where is Batman, Avengers, the Hobbit, etc.!!! All of these movies racked in billion plus dollars and are very good!!! Like most people i've never seen any of the movies on this list. More importantly I don't want to see any of them except for Django Unchained...really people, just because a movie has special effects it should not be looked at as a good movie. This is exactly why I do not watch any of these shows (especially the Oscars)
How Ironic, you complain about special effects, yet the movies you wanted to win, are all based on special effects. Plus the money a movie makes, does not reflect how good it is. Look at twilight for example.
A good movie is a movie that makes you think and learn about real life. That is something you can relate to. Movies that you mentioned didn't make me think. and I agree with the earlier comment. What are you really saying about special effects? Sounds very confusing!
He was saying that all the nominated movies were only good because of special effects. And then suggested super hero movies and the hobbit. All three movies heavily use special effects. Hence the irony
Am I the only one that finds the Girls a horrible show.....do not understand it winning anything !
"Girls" is not horrible, just vapid and meaningless, which is why it's hipster-cool. Hey, if you had no commitments and no meaningful work to do, what could be better than watching "Girls?"
I have not seen "Girls", but I do watch Modern Family quite a bit and I LOVE it!! I assumed it would have won.
Right,Good to see these useful info here..Thanks a lot for sharing them with us….
Important Harvard Guy can't spell: How ironic!
glad she won...
And the award for best fantasy movies goes to Argo.
No, that would be "Zero."
I'm so sorry Frankenweenie got passed over. I saw it this weekend. It's a very cute film.
Totally agree! I believe it would have been in the animated category (does stop-motion go in that category? I'm not sure), and I thought it was much better than Brave.
Congratulations to Christopher and Quentin for "Django Unchained".
It didn't win anything. Too many cuss words in it and too violent. Violence and guns and lesbeans are bad.
It won a few awards last night. The movie was very good, imo. Routing for Tarrantino to win an Oscar.
totally routed you sooooo right.
Tony Kushner's "LINCOLN" was a writing masterpiece. Tarantino is interesting and bizarre. Art is difficult to compare. But, Kushner and Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis will be the work that will live forever. I am sad the foreign press did not appreciate Spielberg's most important work at a critical time in American political history. While art shouldn't really be compared, there is no comparison to the significance of Spielberg, Kushner and Day-Lewis. The parallels between LINCOLN and Obama are thought-provoking and inspiring. Thanks to these three giants and everyone responsible for this masterpiece.
Spot on! What better way to spend one's time than being a willing witness of QT's libidinal fantasies?
Odd post on here last night. I was already in bed getting good rest. That psychiatrist guy types too much. Plus he isn't funny. Doest even reference d ooooody.
failed..university has not made such statements
comments...but we'll confirm....great job ben
with marquee blog..you know him right J?
great night –
AMEN...Ben Afflect, I just want you to know that this pineapple princess, who lives out here in the blue pacific...HAWAII, is darn proud of you. You not only won the BEST PICTURE but also the BEST DIRECTOR. I want to wish you the best life has to offer and God Bless You and your Family. Aloha pumehana from Hawaii. Aunty Johanna Keona Fergie
Wooh that's my grandma!!!!! It's great knowing out there across the great pond Gramma loves you!!!
I fully agree with you, Ben did a fantastic job and was sooo happy to hear he won Best Movie and Best Director. Bless him and his family, he is the greatest.
Argo and Afflect win Best Picture and Best Director in both Critics Awards and Golden Globe and yet do not even rate a nomination by the Academy -- that makes the Oscars look stupid and irrelevant this year -
Perhaps the academy fears that most American movie goers will take this movie as gospel instead of realizing that it's based 'loosely' on fact. It downplays Canada's role so much that I am yet to find a Canadian even wanting to see it. Sadly, it's going to rewrite the history of what actually happened in the minds of those who believe a movie is real life.
Look again, Argo is nominated by the Acamedy. And Ben Affleck as best director, that is a joke. and by the way you're irrelevant.
So true! P Scott
...it's good to remind everyone that the Critics Choice Award is voted on by film critics (not filmmakers) and the Golden Globe Award is voted on by 70-some-odd journalists comprising the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (not filmmakers)...the Oscar is voted on by members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (all filmmakers)...as such, the Oscar alone is the award bestowed by professional filmmakers upon their peers...whether or not the Critics Choice, Golden Globes and Oscar nominations and recipients are similar in any way is, mostly, irrelevant...it's nice that the Critics Choice and the Golden Globes favor Mr. Affleck, but his peers seem to think otherwise and there's nothing wrong with that...
Sorry to disagree. LINCOLN is a scholarly masterpiece of writing, acting, producing and directing. And is much more significant, especially at this critical moment in American political history. ARGO is an average, entertaining movie that only resembles an event. While art really shouldn't be compared, there is no comparison between LINCOLN and ARGO. LINCOLN will live forever with important lessons for America's and the world's future.
Actually Afflack winning anything is a gift! Awful actor!
haven't you noticed what a joke the Golden Globes has been! The TV categories were basically, "Game Changes", "Homeland" & "Girls" winning best series & best acting(s)... might as well call it what it is, the HPA members forgot to watch the rest of the other shows!
As for the Film categories, it is as predictable as crap! All the acting nods went to actors/actresses that everyone has been hyping about...
Why even bother putting up a show & fancy dresses, just send the damn awards in the mail & call it a night!
My comments are..awaiting moderation. Lmao. That's Marquee for you
Lmao! What was that all about?
Don't you just love it when you come on and see that. It makes me laugh really.
Beautiful Vixen- don't want to enter into the fray here, but as a favor to you wanted to let you know that to anyone in the mental health field, your psychiatric disorder is blazingly obvious. Embarrassingly so, given what it is. Won't post it up here, but just know that you might be revealing more than you want beyond the pithy, transgressive and provocative posts.
Okay hacker. Keep talking to your demented self. You already proved what a f up you are. So sorry. Go ahead and attacked me if it would make you feel better. Regardless ...you still be here craving attention, if not from me, but from the voices in your head. Go kiss your mommies good night now. I'm sure they would tuck you in all nice and snug in between them. Nite nite sweet cakes.lol
Hacker? Not really sure what you're talking about, actually. Maybe you have me confused with someone else? But it's interesting to hear you talk about someone "craving attention" or your ideas of mental illness. I'm teaching a seminar on psychopathology and mass media after J term ends. We play a sort of "guess that psychiatric disorder" game- more fun for the doctoral students if we gather information from the real world, and more than just typical case presentations. Lately we've been using mixed media and other sources of clinical data, and I stumbled upon your posts. I was actually trying to do you a favor, but since the posts aren't protected by HIPAA or other confidentiality laws, we're allowed to use them. We distribute most of the strings and have a conversation about what you can glean, psychiatrically, from what you read online (knowing the limitations). It's useful if, in the future, clinicians have contact with their patients online via email, etc. But we talk a lot about construction of the self, unintended clinical exposure, etc. But carry on- do your thing.
Okay. Send me the details. I won't mind being in your study. Most likely I will come out saner than your wife or your male l0ver. Thank you for your thoughts and care.
Actually, just a clinical course, not a study- though there have been a number of interesting, reasonably well constructed scholarly studies. So we just use the data online, present it blind. Would be curious to compare the student's conclusions to the "real" person, but I suspect that would be complicated ethically to have you come in person. Thanks for the offer. But interestingly, one of the things we look at is the idea of the Internet and other parties as a sort of projective technique- that is, with little or ambiguous information about others, what kinds of assumptions do they make. The idea is that the assumption obviously tells us something about what the other party has posted, but also tells us quite a bit about the person doing the projecting because of the way they "fill in the blank," so to speak. In your case, you seem to have decided I'm male. Really interesting because I didn't clarify one way or another. Just to give you a sense of some of the things we do, look at. It's a fun class, actually.
Sorry, thought you were someone else. Seen you on here before and you should know that this site is messed up. I'm just a troll having fun with another troll on here. Don't want any trouble with you. I was just having fun. Good night
your mom called you for dinner
harvard has your blogs - harvard doesn't care about comments we we were concerned.
thanks you....time to go to "work"
i love ann's marriage, i love her career and she is a perfect example to all women. most of these women today look so much older nowadays i can't figure it out.
when you have a good marriage like anne does you always look beautiful.
Anne Hathaway is no perfect example of anything - her acting is way overrated, she makes the oddest, exaggerated expressions, and has teeth like a horse. And as to a successful marriage, you can claim this after the marriage hasn't even reached four months? I'm lucky - better Shulman than me.
there or not there...haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
i fell soooo sorry for you.
and a class act her husband must be so proud of her.
GIVE UP ALREADY...3 HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
wonderful marriage and wonderful girl.
how was the game?
the woman is just perfect and the marriage is awsome...i am so happy for her.
in all the blogs BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
GIVE UP ALREADY YOUR THE LAUGHING STOCK OF ALL THE BLOGGERS...
loose? not as loose as you are... macho man
your boyfriend get home?
Yea ..your mother
she's a butch with long hair and unattractive.
That explains your madness. Mine, we're still trying to figure it out. Nite
