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!

Is This Action Figure The New Megatron Design In Transformers: Dark Of The Moon?? I Think So…..

It’s always nifty having the large amount of action figures being pumped out by Hasbro – who happen to own the rights to the Transformer franchise – the way they do, because usually it’s a unreliable way of getting a early glimpse at the movie’s characters. Still it may not show much insight, as the toys never seem to be THAT accurate to the actual characters anyway — as most toys don’t.

But hey, Hasbro do a fair job if it. So catch a glimpse at the new design for Decepticon baddy Megatron in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, out summer next year.

Below you can check out the pic’s received by JoBlo of the robot nasty in pre and post transformation — and also a set pic of what appeared to be an anonymous tanker spotted on various shooting sets. Which now appears to be Megatron himself, before the CGI obviously! 
We haven’t been provided with a look at the fairly ruffled up Megatron in the recent teaser trailer, but as the release in July 2011 gets nearer I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of him soon enough; check out the pics below from JoBlo.

Megan Fox Will Still Be Seeing Transformers 3, But May Get A Little Jealous ‘When I See Somebody Kissing My Shia’

Well isn’t this just rich, Ms Megan Fox may still have a soft spot for Bay’s Transformers, at least just one aspect in particular. The much sort after place of “babe” in the films, a role which made Fox’s career — which only this year saw Victoria’s Secrets model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley take over as lead actress for Bay’s Transformers 3.

After leaving the film earlier this year actress Fox, 24, revealed this week that she has plans to see upcoming Transformers 3 on release. But also revealed that she may still have a few sentimental attachments, as well as some jealousy on her part. Talking to MTV, the Jonah Hex actress said “I will see it. I’m gonna see it.

“I might be a little jealous when I see somebody kissing my Shia [LaBeouf], wearing my jeans that I… already had been fit for. It’s kind of weird, actually.” Ooh La La! And she went on to comment on how “different” herself and replacement for the films Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, adding “She’s six feet tall also, so maybe they’re not the exact same jeans. But it will be strange”

Just to note, Huntington-Whiteley is not replacing Fox’s character in the last to films Mikeala Banes, but will play a entirely new character to the film series — Carly who featured in early episodes of the animated TF series as Spike’s (a.k.a Sam’s) wife.

So the way I see it, is Fox was not entirely ready to leave the films — although TF director Michael Bay saw it differently, and if you would like to believe that she was dropped from the film simply because her ‘contract wasn’t renewed’ then good on you. But for whatever reason it must be good — because to be honest Im liking the way new TF babe Huntington-Whiteley is filling those jeans…..don’t you? Stay tuned for more from production of TF 3, and on actress Megan Fox!

X-Men 2 Director Brian Singer Gives Details On X-Men: First Class

Its one of those things that fuel the movie news/gossip business and thats not rumors – its spoilers – and thanks to producer and X-Men 2 director Brian Singer we have some details to share on the upcoming X-Men film — First Class.

So WARNING contains spoilers. There has been allot of casting news lately, and I’m afraid to say that I can’t quite keep up with all the cast news — so I will hopefully get the news to you soon in a joint post later one when the full cast is posted. But for now we have some plot details from producer Brian Singer.

Although Singer isn’t directing, he’s still very much involved with production of X-Men: First Class — and he caught up with AICN to give them the low-down on what they’re up to. Singer is in fact serving as producer for the Mattew Vaugh directed superdude film. Singer had the following to say;

  • The film is a allotment piece and is set during the 1960’s, with J.F Kennedy still acting as president
  • It will cover the meeting of Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Leshner (Magneto) in around there early 20’s
  • James McAvoy is playing a young Professor X, but won’t be in his wheel-chair to begin with so we’ll get to see how and why he got into his wheelchair bound state for the rest of the films – also well be seeing a Charles Xavier with a full crop of hair.
  • Singer also said that First Class won’t be your conventional comic-to-movie transfer, its a whole new beginning for the X-Men.
  • He said that because it’s set in the 60’s a lot of the technology is inspired by James Bond in that era, so expect some pretty retro gadgets involved.
  • The costumes for the film will be even more extravagant and more comic-bookish than before
  • We won’t be seeing Scott and Jean we will although be seeing cyclops’ brother Alex Summers aka Havoc, as played by Lucas Till
  • The Hellfire club will be present in the film, with Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw and January Jones as Emma Frost as members. Also the costumes will be similar to the ones in the comics, and Bacon may sport a ponytail with a ribbon in it!?!?
  • The films will feel more comprehensive with filming spreading from the U.S to England, with Charles Xavier attending Oxford and there will be some Russian elements because of being in the 60’s

First Captain America Set Pics, Actually Not That Exciting

Here we have the first set of images (not including the above) straight from the set of Captain America: The First Avenger which began production this June — for a July 22nd, 2011 release in the US. CA: The First Avenger has its work cut out for it, with director Joe Johnston (The Wolfman 2010, Jumanji) heading a cast of Chris EvansHayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Dominic Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones and Stanley Tucci.

The film will of course eventually lead into the Marvel mega-team-up of The Avengers, but the most of the film will focus on the early days and the beginnings of Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) involvement in a government experiment that would turn him into the super soldier Captain America we all know and love. So check out the less than exciting pics below!

Will Rooney Mara Be Getting A Dragon Tattoo? Rooney Mara Cast As Computer Bad-Ass Lisbeth Salander

Its been ages since I heard any news for the English adaption of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium Trilogy, starting off with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo but now we have news that Sony has found there computer hacking bad-ass/goth chick Lisbeth Salander — in  24 year-old actress Rooney Mara.

Sony, after one of the most talked about casting choices in recent history,has announced that actress Rooney Mara will play detective Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher‘s english adaption of the popular book series. Mara, who recently appeared in the Platinum Dunes Nightmare On Elm Street remake (which rocked) and with Fincher’s The Social Network. So if you loved her in either roles, then it should only be an indication of what to expect.

Casting for the role has ranged from Natalie Portman (who reportedly screened for the role last week), Mara, Ellen Page, Carey Milligan and Scarlett Johansson. With the majority of young actress in hollywood gunning for the role. Rooney will star alongside Daniel Craig for the three films, including The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. We don’t know for sure, but the first film will start filming next month  — with a December 2011 release in mind. So stay tuned for more as it comes!
