The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards premiered live Sunday (yesterday), January 16, 2011 from 8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel hosted again by Ricky Gervais who was most certainly drunk last year.  You can catch the nominees and subsequent winners after the break.

BEST PICTURE: DRAMA
Black Swan
The Fighter
Inception
The King’s Speech
The Social Network – WINNER!

Well its entirely expected, not my pick — and certainly a very hard bunch to chose from. but really Inception is the deserving winner, but hey you don’t always get what you want!
BEST PICTURE: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Alice in Wonderland
Burlesque
The Kids Are All Right – WINNER!
RED
The Tourist
Not much to say, probably the best out of the bunch. I’m just glad to see Burlesque tumble and fall really — lets hope their winning streak starts at the Razzies!
BEST DIRECTOR
Darren Aronosfsky, Black Swan
David Fincher, The Social Network – WINNER!
Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David O. Russell, The Fighter
Once again I think Inception was sold short, and it seems the academy are favoring Fincher’s Social Network — but as we all predicted/expected, The Social Network is just starting with its Awards clean up.
BEST ACTOR: DRAMA
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech – WINNER!
James Franco, 127 Hours
Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter
Colin Firth is reaching a point where the string of excellent roles he choses are being recognized, not just by fans but by members of the academy. A very deserving win, Firth was masterful in King’s Speech.
BEST ACTRESS: DRAMA
Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman, Black Swan – WINNER!
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine
I was vouching for Portman the moment she appeared on screen in Black Swan, she put her all in this role. The emotion is intense, and she’s at a point in her career where everything she does she gets recognized for when awards season comes around. I look forward to seeing her win big at the Oscars!
BEST ACTRESS: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Anette Bening, The Kids Are All Right – WINNER!
Anne Hathaway, Love and Other Drugs
Angelina Jolie, The Tourist
Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right
Emma Stone, Easy A
Loved Annette Benning. She deserves a lot of credit for this movie and I’m glad she got recognized for her role in this fantastic film.
BEST ACTOR: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland
Johnny Depp, The Tourist
Paul Giamatti, Barney’s Version – WINNER!
Jake Gyllenhaal, Love and Other Drugs
Kevin Spacey, Casino Jack
To be honest I haven’t heard of or seen this film, but Giamatti is a good choice no matter.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amy Adams, The Fighter
Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech
Mila Kunis, Black Swan
Melissa Leo, The Fighter – WINNER!
Jackie Weaver, Animal Kingdom
The rightful winner, as the group are fairly rich in terms of winning potential. I would say that it was a close call, but Leo won in the end because of her ability to tie in with the audience.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christian Bale, The Fighter – WINNER!
Michael Douglas, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
Andrew Garfield, The Social Network
Jeremy Renner, The Town
Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech
A great guy, and a deserving win. Great film, emotion and intensity course through his veins in The Fighter — I’m not at all surprised.
BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Biutiful
The Concert
The Edge
I Am Love
In a Better World – WINNER!
BEST SCREENPLAY
Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, 127 Hours
Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg, The Kids Are All Right
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David Seidler, The King’s Speech
Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network – WINNER!

By now you know my view on The Social Network, and once again Inception gets over stepped this time…AGAIN. Utter bullshit.
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE
Alexandre Desplat, The King’s Speech
Danny Elfman, Alice in Wonderland
A.R. Rahman, 127 Hours
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, The Social Network – WINNER!
Hans Zimmer, Inception
I’m still a little baffled over how The Social Network seems to be dominating in every section, because frankly I’m going to be bias and say Hans Zimmer deserved the win. I found nothing of Social Network memorable, certainly not the score — and so the insanity of awards season starts.
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Despicable Me
How to Train Your Dragon
The Illusionist
Tangled
Toy Story 3 – WINNER!

Once again fan favorite Pixar win! It was clearly the winner from the moment we saw it on the ballet form, being the highest grossing Animated film of all time — it was half expected! My favorite film of last year, and a general superstar! 
BEST ORIGINAL SONG
“Bound To You” (Burlesque)
“Coming Home” (Country Strong)
“I See The Light” (Tangled)
“There’s a Place For Us” (The Chronicles of Narnia)
“You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me”  (Burlesque) – WINNER!

An odd choice as Burlesque seems to be lacking in every other column of the Awards show, but still I think the Razzies hold some faith in the film 😉

Zack Snyder Delivers Another Stunning Sucker Punch Poster, You Will Be Unprepared Alright!

Well it seems director Zack Snyder is coming through with continuing to deliver stunning posters/pics for his forthcoming film, Sucker Punch. With the release of another gut-busting promotional poster, you would think that Snyder has everything to gain! Already summing up to be a fantastic film – as this is my most anticipated film of this year – Punch looks to deliver a whole lot more than its title suggests.

This poster only reminds us that in March, dropping into theaters is the ride of your life! Dragons, samurai, guns, gals, robots, swords, planes and of course Nazi’s is only a short list of the things being thrown at us in high-flying 2-D! Sucker Punch is the movie I’m most looking forward to this year, and for a good reason!

Check out the poster below, and as always enjoy!

Our Very First Official Look At Andrew Garfield In Full Spidey Kit!…A More Organic Look To Say The Least

While I’ve been away it seems theres been a major leap in superdude news – with the release of two major costumes in upcoming super-hero flicks – with this latest being the very first image of Andrew Garfield in costume as Spider-Man released by Sony! And it looks pretty damn awesome!

Below we have the pic of what our new friendly neighborhood Spider-man is going to look like in Marc Webb‘s still untitled reboot of the web-slinger franchise. Judging by the pic a mask is still probably in the design phase, but of what we can see we have our finest yet Spidey guise — as you can see, theres been a few major changes to the classic look we know and identify with.

This is not our first pic of Garfield however, as several set-photos of the actor have appeared online, but still this is the first glimpse of Garfield in costume. On the other hand we’ve seen plenty of co-star and Spidey love interest, Gwen Stacy, played by actress Emma Stone.

So it’s out with spandex tights? It seems that not only is the film getting a reboot, but so too is the costume — as the Tobey Maguire suit we grew to know so well has gone under a reboot of its own. One question that will have to answered later is why the hell does Pete Parker looks so bruised and battered?

But what is evident is that they’re going for a mare organic looking costume, with a few modifications; such as the logo and the material. And the major rejig of design pattern of the overall suit, which caters for the change in body type underneath it — a more lankier/linear Garfield over a shorter, stockier Toby Maguire.

So oviously theres been a bit more thought gone into this itteration of the iconic Spidey digs, and its shaping up to be a force to be reckoned with. Check out the awesome pick below, and let us know what you think! As always, enjoy!

Paranormal Activity 3 Poster Revealed…Another PA…Oh Joy, And I Only Just Recovered From The Last One!

It seems that the formidable Paranormal Activity franchise is making isn’t going away anytime soon (sigh), and it looks like to our misfortune that a third (and lets hope final) Paranormal is on the way — and here to reinforce that fact is the first teaser poster for the film! A few months back (i.e last year) we passed on the news that Paramount, the company behind the last two films, would be releasing another film in the franchise.

Lucky for us there hasn’t been any mention of 3D…yet, but its most likely the third film will not be in 3D — which will break the recent trend of 3D sequelizations. Seeing as Paramount likes to impose reasonably low budgets on the Paranormal films, a 3D conversion seems unlikely — and to be honest a 3D sequel probably wouldn’t cater for the shaky camera effect in this case.

According to sources PA3 is due to hit cinemas in October (US), and sometime after for other countries. So check out the teaser poster below, and as always enjoy!

The Razzies Are Here At Last! And Not A Moment To Soon! And The Front Runner Is….Burlesque!!

Well it’s that time of year again, and It’s a sigh of relief to find that the shortlist of nominees for the 2011 Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced! For those a little less knowledgeable the Razzies are an anti-Oscar’s show of sorts, which celebrates the years worst films. And It looks like I’m not the only one that hated every dreaded second of Twilight : Eclipse and Sex And The City 2!


However, don’t get to excited because the full list of nominees are a little way of  and won’t be released until January 24. Thanks to the LA Times we have a the short list of nominees, and to be honest there’s no surprises amongst them — I mean Twilight is just asking for it…

Anyway, on to the nominees – leading the pack of rag-tag failures is Christina Aguliera‘s last-years bomb Burlesque, having already received a whopping five notches on the preliminary ballot. With several (soul-crushing) slightes against its name with nominations including Worst Screenplay, Worst Director, Worst Supporting Actor for Cam Gigandet, Worst Supporting Actress for both Kristen Bell and Cher and Worst Actress for Aguilera. Hmmm they might be on to something there…

Other actors potentially up for the panwagon of worst actor include Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Emily Blunt, George Lopez and Angelina Jolie, who ironically could be nominated for ‘The Tourist,’ in spite of her Golden Globe nomination for the same role. Which seems a bit odd, don’t you think?

Although (to there delight) Burlesque is not eligebable for worst picture, leaving it with it’s last a scrap of dignity — titles that are however up for the dishouners are;

Also this year ther Razzies have added a 3D section in honor of the 3D fad – which has spawned mostly crappy films…in 3D dimentions – that has hit the movie community the last year or so. This category has become neccasery because when movies added 3D in their name to justify a higher-priced ticket. A masterfull plan by the movie man! Nominees look to include Piranha 3D, Resident Evil: Afterlife, The Nutcracker in 3D and most likely even The Last Airbender and the box office success Clash of the Titans.

So that’s it from me for the moment, I will be on holiday for the coming week or so — and when I return the full list of nominees should be released. So catch ya later, and I hope to be getting back in the swing of things soon!

I Love It When A Post Comes Together! Mr. Bruce’s Top 10 Most Memorable Quotes Of 2010

Well it seemed almost unfair to miss out on a years full of amazing one liners and quips — so I thought I only fair to make a list of the Top 10 Quotes Of 2010. If your social life revolves around quoting movie dialogue to your friends around the clock — lats how it goes, in my circle there is a million and one situations where we’ve wanted to say something but instead yarned endlessly on the dialogue from our favorite films. Thankfully, 2010 was no exception and I think those few films deserve some recognition.

You’ll notice that the list is dominated mostly by Scott Pilgrim vs. The World quotes — because frankly every line in that film is pure gold. Don’t hate me for it, but really it’s either that or campy Clash quotes. So enjoy my list of Scott Pilgrim quotes plus one or two other one-liners!
