Press read more for a full list of winners and highlights of last night’s 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards brought to you by Cinema Sharks movie blog >>

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 😉

The Good Wife
Mad Men
The Walking Dead

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!
