The Golden Globes 2011
I’m going to take a break from writing about remakes, though there will be another one tomorrow, and instead I’m going to talk about the Golden Globes.
It’s no surprise that Natalie Portman won Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture for her portrayal of Nina in Black Swan. The movie was so well received that it would have been a complete shock, to me, had she not one. The male version of this award, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, went to, Mr. Darcy himself, Colin Firth for his movie The Kings Speech.
Toy Story 3 won Best Animated Feature Film. It’s not that I wasn’t expecting it to win; it’s just that everyone I know who saw it didn’t like it. They said it was good but way too sad, some even said they wished it wasn’t made. I was hoping something more fun loving would win, but maybe next time. Best Motion Picture Comedy/Musical went to The Kids Are All Right, which is about two lesbians, in a relationship, that each used the same sperm donor to have kids and now those kids, who have reached teenage years, find their biological dad.
Glee got the award for Best Comedy/Musical TV Series. It actually beat the Big Bang Theory in this category, which I wasn’t sure it would due to Glee’s decline in popularity. The Big Bang Theory didn’t completely miss out as Jim Parson, Sheldon, walked away with the award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical TV Series. Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer, of Glee, didn’t leave empty handed as they won Best Supporting Actress/Actor awards respectively. Isn’t it strange that comedy and musical are paired together in the Golden Globes?
Are you happy with the winners? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
