"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

There are quite a few In Bruges fan on the board and I'm one of them. Very happy to see this get nominated. I didn't find this the best film of the year, but it fits comfortably in my top 5.

Buddy & Julie Miller - Written in Chalk wow, first listen, but great great record! 9.3/10

M. Ward - Hold Time 8.0/10

Absense of Doubt & Milk for Best Picture is puzzling.... will this kill the Oscar buzz?

The Best Animated Film category pisses me off when it keeps a film like Wall-E from being nominated as Best Picture. I like a number of films in the Best Comedy/Musical category, but Wall-E towers above them. And it's on par with any of the Best Drama films. It's the 2nd best reviewed film of the year according to Metacritic, a huge worldwide box office success, and the Globes doesn't list it among the 10 best films. Ridiculous.

what do you mean?

I don't know what the Golden Globe rules are and really don't care, always seemed like a meaningless and wasteful ceremony to me, but if you're talking about the Academy Awards then you know that the category doesn't keep films from being nominated for Best Picture, right?

I saw the stage play Doubt which was very powerful...the trailers for the film look hokey and melodramatic, even with the presence of great actors.

he or she means that the voters consciously or subconsciously will tend to decide to relegate an animated film deserving of a best picture nom to the animated category, whereas if there was no animated category they might be more inclined to put it up for the big prize

that best actress in a TV comedy category is really shitty. no surprise there i guess

But as a comedy? I guess it could go either way, but
Spoiler
....I feel the same way about Burn After Reading.

Meanwhile--they're calling 24 a miniseries now? When did that happen?

As you can see, I've never watched the Golden Globes.

i guess In Bruges was somewhat of a dramedy. There certainly was a good deal of laughter in the film

24 was nominated for best miniseries or movie (on tv) 24: Redemption was a made for tv movie

I've seen a bunch of trailers--does that count? Also 5 of the films and 6 of the tv vehicles (thanks, HBO!). Skipped "Recount" due to anxiety about the prospect of another such election, maybe it's not too late to catch that.

The 66th annual Golden Globes are scheduled to air Sunday, Jan. 11 on NBC. The nominees are:

Best Supporting Actor
Heather Ledger, "The Dark Knight"


Adding insult to injury... :lol:
