Like last year, I thought the Golden Globes were a big snnnoooozzzeee. Ricky Gervais didn't add much. Surprised by the double Avatar victory. And Best Picture Oscar front runner The Hurt Locker got 0 wins. Only four times in Golden Globes history has the eventual winner of the Oscar for Best Picture won zero Globes: Casablanca (1943), The Sting (1973), The Godfather Part II (1974), and Crash (2005).
Jeff Bridges made up for his BFCA blunder in which he accidentally called writer-director Scott Cooper, Chris Cooper! I liked Bridges' speech, bringing his parents into it. I also liked his joke about the standing ovation cramping his reputation for being under appreciated... funny! I think the best speech of the night was Scorsese's for the Cecil B. DeMille Award (if a bit long). But really the show was "moment"-less. Quentin got screwed; I hope he gets at least the Oscar for Screenplay.
The biggest surprise, betting-wise was Chloe Sevigny's win over Jane Lynch for Supporting TV Actor; followed by Downey Jr.'s win (for Sherlock Holmes) over Matt Damon and Michael Stuhlbarg in Comedy/Musical Actor.
Usually there is one upset in the acting for the Oscar but I can't see where it would happen this year: Bridges, Streep, Waltz, Mo'nique. Who'd get bumped?
