The Golden Globes suck troll balls

Good lord, I never thought I’d see the Golden Globes reduced to a lame press conference—and on CNN! Sheesh. I’m not complaining about the lost of its giant production (who cares about that crap?) but the lost of the circus-like pre-show and funny antics from drunken actors. Also, I would have loved to see Daniel Day-Lewis, Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem accept their awards. Talk about parade of beautiful men... *dreamy sigh* yummily wearing tux! Oh, be still my heart!

Damn the Writers’ Strike! I understand, truly I do, the strike is necessary yada yada but it deprived me of eye candy! *grrr* cancelled every fucking thing I watch on TV. And even now darling Jon and The Daily Show is back, it still doesn’t feel the same thing. Why why why do they do this to me?!? *wails* I’m not sure if it will help to have Raoul kiss every inch of my body but my golly, we’ve got to try something!!!

Oh. And I might as well add, on the -98% chance House writers are reading TBB: Please. I. Want. The. Ducklings. Back. Make Taub meet The Carver, kill Thirteen with Addison’s disease, give Kumar his own Taj Mahal Badalandabad show or chlamydia—I don’t care how just GET RID OF THE BORING NEWBIES.

Got it? Goody. Now, here’s the list of winners of the sucky 2008 Golden Globes:

Glad Johnny Depp won. He was great in Sweeney Todd.

The Writers Strike is a pain. Executives should just give the cut writers deserve.

Loved Kiera's movie Atonement.

...Completely forgot the GGs were on.

I think, if I were to damn anyone, it would be the AMPTP.

Speaking of House, did you know Doris Egan (writer) has a livejournal? http://tightropegirl.livejournal.com/

Have you seen Daniel Day-Lewis' Let There Be Blood? (I *think* that's the title.) I've heard it's pretty good, though violent.

I love Glenn Close in Damages. She's fantastic. I can't believe Tina Fey won as Best Actress and for 30 ROCK. She's annoying while 30 ROCK is a stupid show.

Want to see ATONEMENT but they have yet to show it here. Have never even heard of MAD MEN. Wanted Hugh Laurie to win. Also nothing for PUSHING DAISIES. :/

Nope. Haven't seen Daniel's movie. Want to see that one too! I read about it and the only thing i know is it's about oil, heh. But they say it's really good. Also NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.

Thing is during late week of December to early January, there's a film fest here where they only show local films. I haven't even seen AMERICAN GANGSTER. :/

(My computer is so slow it takes two minutes to load a page and this comment box!)

Oh, and thanks for the link Dance. Will check it out!

I thought they totally canceled the Golden Globes. I hear writers and big stars alike would also boycott the Oscars.

I was expecting Atonement to win and am really happy it did. It was awesome.

And Johnny won!! Now if he can only win an Oscar the world will be set right.
I can't wait to see Sweeney Todd. I saw the trailer the other day and it looked amazing.

The writers' strike is ruining my TV life. Seriously. And you'd think I'd actually go out and try to find a life of my own. But no... it's more like I find more time for grading. Yech.

Love that Johnny won! I hope he wins the Oscars but I don't think he'll win over Daniel Day-Lewis, not that that's a bad thing since Daniel is a fabulous actor.

Oh, writers' strike. I miss my precious TV shows, too. Those stupid producers suck!

I was crossing my fingers for Johnny! I'm glad he won!

I want to see The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. I wasn't even aware of this movie until last night. Love the title.

The writers strike is affecting everyone. Writers, actors, producers, consumers. The new season of American Idol is premiering this week, that's good (at least for me). But frankly I'm not looking forward to a TV full of reality shows.

Oh, and it's "*A* Daily Show" now. I don't know why they changed the name this week. I assume it has something to do with the strike.

Olly

Oh god, I miss The Office and Heroes so bad. I've been rewatching all the past episodes from previous seasons. The writers strike is killing me! I have to see what happens in the newer episodes!

I hope the strike ends before the audience for my favorite shows disappears. I'd hate to see them come back and not be popular enough to survive.

Hopefully the WGA members get what they want, they deserve it.

I don't have much to say except the writer strike sucks.

I haven't watched any of the nominated movies/tv shows this season. I have no idea what I've been doing with my time.
