There Will Be BloodIf you haven't heard yet, The Golden Globe awards were handed out last night at - due to the writer's strike - a quickly done press conference that any TV station was free to broadcast. I watched some of it on CNN which meant I got to hear all of Larry King's unintentional hilarious commentary when awards were announced ("a great movie everyone needs to see", etc). I felt tense when they were about to announce best picture. Would it be "There Will Be Blood" or "No Country For Old Men"? They were the only two I saw in that category, and the two I was misled into believing had to win. I was about to feel bad for the one that didn't win, when it was announced that neither won. "Atonement" took it instead. I need to see that - and "The Great Debaters" that Sharon Jones is in, and "American Gangster" that inspired the new Jay-Z album.

Daniel Day Lewis did win best actor though, and Javier Bardem won best supporting actor, so both NCFOM and TWBB were well-represented. "Ratatouille" starring future Plug Awards host Patton Oswalt won best cartoon, "Sweeney Todd" beat "Juno" for best musical or comedy, and Eddie Vedder won best song. Jonny Greenwood didn't win anything, which could be because they don't even seem to have a soundtrack category.

Also happened this weekend: Bjork flipped out again

Atonement was a great film! Glad to see it win.

DD Lewis was amazingly mesmorizing in TWBB!

If Javier Bardem didn't win best supporting actor, it would've been a sham(e)!

Bjork needs to go to prison. You just can't keep on attacking people. Maybe then she will learn.

They have a best original score category, but strangely, greenwood wasnt even nominated. Marianelli's score for Atonement won the award, which i must say was probably my second favorite score of the just have to love that typewriter.

Bjork is a psycho freak. I love her though . . .

The media keep referring to this New Zealand attack as the second time Bjork has attacked a reporter. Its at least the third. There were an incident in Paris in August of this year:

Atonement was not good at all. It's a snooze fest. And therefore I expected it to win, cuz the right film never wins. Hopefully I'll be proved wrong at the Oscars. I was very happy to see Sweeney Todd win though. That film ruled!

And Duchovny winning over Alec Baldwin? Come on!

atonement sucks. the golden globes are an even bigger joke than the oscars. babel won last year, for crying out loud.

The Iranian vessel prank is actually more important news then anything on this blog, but don't worry everyone...Useless RSS feeds from other music sites that BV posts will be sure to continue, and you're little brains will remain completely un-aware of the world around you. Nice to see we didn't nuke that country after all.

Is Eddie Vedder in Daft Punk?

Sweeney Todd>>TWBB&NC4OM.

Though Daniel Day-Lewis deserves every Oscar they've got.

Daft Punk wouldn't nuke Iran, they'd surrender 'cuz they're French.

There Will Be Blood was the best film of 2007/2008 for sure.

atonement sucked, i am completely baffled by the number of accolades/nominations it is receiving.

but who cares about the golden globes anyways? it's a three hour circle jerk.

i thought atonement and no country were both amazing...haven't seen there will be blood yet (not out where i live)...i thought sweeney todd was pretty many better comedies for that category that should have been nominated/won: juno, superbad, knocked up

Another week, another major guild win for "No Country For Old Men."

The Coen Brothers' thriller took home the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award at Saturday (Feb. 2) night's annual Producers Guild Awards gala.

The Groundhog Day celebration was appropriate given "No Country" seems to be taking home a different pre-Oscars award every time you look up.

The PGA prize, which was presented to the Joel and Ethan Coen plus Scott Rudin, can now be added to top honors from the Screen Actors Guild and Directors Guild. The Brothers Coen are also up for a Writers Guild Award, with results to be announced next Saturday.

Then again, the Zanuck Award isn't necessary a harbinger of Oscar gold. The past three PGA feature honorees have been "The Aviator," "Brokeback Mountain" and "Little Miss Sunshine," a trio without a best picture win between them.

Also taking home feature film PGA prizes on Saturday were "Ratatouille," the animated winner, and "Sicko," named as best theatrical documentary.
