The Rotten Globes

Blerp, looks like “Benjamin” and his Argonauts have finally succeeded in their quest of the Golden Fleece, or at least in pulling it over our eyes. Argo fleecing both Best Motion Picture – Drama AND Best Director – Motion Picture served as the biggest the surprise(s) of the Golden Globes last night, aside from the LEGENwait for itDARY! appearance of Bill Clinton or Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig doing this…

Homeland and Girls raking in their respective ‘Television’ categories is justifiable, Argo dominating the major ‘Movies’ categories is not. It’s like finishing your coffee and getting all the grounds in your last sip; it leaves you with a bitter aftertaste. Sure it tasted good, even occasionally great, while you drank it, but in the end you are left unsatisfied.

Now, more than ever, I am looking forward to the Oscars. I hope the Academy thoroughly recognizes the great films of 2012, like Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and Django Unchained, while the good-not-quite-great films like Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and Life of Pi remain satisfied by the nominations themselves. Perhaps the outcomes will be the same and Alan Arkin tells me to…

…but I sure hope not. Argo and a few other winners aside, the Golden Globes were great fun to watch since there were incredible presenters, memorable speeches (I’m looking at you, Jodie Foster), and, of course, the hilarious hosts in Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, both of whom deserved waaaaaaaay more screen time, but at least you can watch their highlights right now!!!

Anyway, scroll down to see the full list of nominees and the “COLORED in winners, from last night’s Golden Globes. If you are wondering what the *asterisks are all about, they represent who I think should have won. Bitter bitter bitter yes but as Anne Hathaway said while accepting her award, “BLERP!
