Quotes

Robert De Niro: These movies, all of them, are like my children, except that my children are more expensive and you can't remake them in 3D to push up the grosses. You do the best you can with your children, you do the best you can making movies and at a certain point you have to let both of them go and hope for the best. It's up to the audiences to decide if it's entertainment, the critics to decide if it's good, and ultimately posterity to decide if it's art. And for the children you just hope the movies do ...

Predictable, sometimes disappointing, but pretty funny
16 January 2011 | by yonigpieSee all my reviews

This years Golden Globes didn't have all the winners that me and probably the majority of you wanted, but thanks to Ricky Gervais and all of the presenters (especially Robert Downey Jr., and Matt Damon) proved very enjoyable and funny.

Biggest Disappointments Glee won three golden globes. To add insult to injury, their version of Don't Stop Believing was played three times, and they beat out candidates like Modern Family, and 30 Rock, which are much better than Glee. No offense, this is my personal opinion. Hans Zimmer Didn't Win Best Score For Inception. In fact Inception didn't win a single thing and the score for the social network, which was OK at best, won. Also, it was too predictable. Social Network won best drama, director, screenplay and score, Colin Firth of course won for the kings speech (he definitely deserved it, but he is going to win for the Oscars and i was hoping James Franco would win, because he was brilliant).

The Kids Are All Right Won (Again, Im not saying it didn't deserve, but i really wanted Red to win. Also, for that category, why was there Burlesque, The Tourist, and Alice in Wonderland? It should have been Other Guys, Scott Pilgrim, Kick Ass, Red and The Kids Are all Right). Also, 127 Hours didn't win a single thing and it was a great movie.

Good things that happened= Jim Parsons, (the nerd from Big bang Theory) won, which was a pleasant surprise. Robert De Niro won the Cecil B. Demille Award, and was presented by Matt Damon, who was very funny(he talked about his movies, then quoted other characters in the movies. His best line was,"And who could forget 'Taxi Driver' where he was literally unrecognizable as a blonde 13 year old hooker?" Christian Bale won for best supporting actor, for his excellent performance in The Fighter (Melissa Leo also won for the Fighter). Toy Story 3 won best animated picture (surprise!). Natalie Portman got her well deserved Golden Globe for her excellent performance in Black Swan. Robert Downey Jr., for the minute that he was on the stage. Quote:"I don't think an actress can say she's done her best work... until she's slept with me." As much as it was predictable, most of the awards handed to the social network were deserved. I think Fincher did a better job with fight club personally, but he did a great job here too Overall, this was better than last year in the fact that they gave it to Avatar last year, and this year was good for movies.
