Despite Ricky Gervais delivering offensive line after offensive line, I was sad to see that the show wasn't able to deliver. I think Steve Buscemi summed up my problem with the show.. it's way too fast in places where it shouldn't be and it drags painfully where it shouldn't. It's too bad, because I thought this year had some great movies.
One frustrating thing about the Golden Globes is the nominations. The Foreign Press is terrible at choosing nominations.. both True Grit and Breaking Bad were shut out of the show and Sons of Anarchy, as always, refuses to get any nomination. However, Katey Segal's win was a pleasant surprise.
Besides that, there wasn't much of a surprise. There were some funny presentations though.. Gervais was great, as was Robert Downey Jr. presenting the Best Actress award and Robert DeNiro's ridiculous acceptance speech for the Cecil B. Demille award. I also liked Buscemi describing the music as "sad."
I've seen plenty of award ceremonies but this was just disappointing.moreless
