The Hollywood Foreign Press Has Done It Again!

hollywood_foreign_press.jpgOK, just admit it, guys, you love movie stars and only nominate the people you would like to 'go to disco' with.

I mean, I sort of know where you're coming from - "The Tourist" sucked but, of course, I would rather sit at "The Tourist" table than the "Winter's Bone" table (if there is one of those it will probably be in an Annex room - in a different hotel).

"Burlesque" was unwatchable, sure, but you had to somehow recognize Cher - her music is the soundtrack of your lives.

The problem is, it's just way too obvious that you don't want any ugly people to be invited to The Golden Globes.  You just have a mental block.  If a hot chick or guy can sort of speak (and even that may not be a prerequisite), they have a chance to get nominated for a Golden Globe

scarlett_johansson_red_dress.jpgAnd, once again, not one film from Manka Bros. Studios gets a nod.  Ever since Khan Manka, Jr. vowed to destroy your organization, you have never been able to see past that and judge the work on its own merit. 

It's truly disgraceful.

But there is a slight positive here.  You did show some restraint.  After all, Cameron Diaz and Scarlett Johansson were both in movies this year, but you made the very difficult (I'm sure) decision not to nominate them (especially now that Scarlett is single and every one of you probably think you have a chance).  I'm sure there were fights and discussions to expand the categories when you couldn't squeeze them in.  (But that's why we have presenters, right?)

Deep down, I love you guys (I mean, who can resist all that hair and horrible perfume).  I just wish you didn't exceed your normal ineptitude this year. 

Hopefully, the Academy doesn't pay too much attention.

It was absolutely stunning. The Tourist? Burlesque? Now we know that Sony took the Hollywood foreign press to Las Vegas to see Cher, so we know what happened there. But The Tourist?

Like in the animation category, if there aren't five comedies or musicals - then either don't have the category or only nominate those that are worthy of some kind of nomination.

Tomorrow - the Producer's Guild Award Nominations - I can probably use the same picture.

I Freakin' Love the Golden Globe Awards...Look forward to it every year!

About Medea

Medea Medea was a real bitch from classical mythology - as most famously dramatized by Euripides.

She was a sorceress and wife of Jason, whom she assisted in obtaining the Golden Fleece. When Jason deserted her, she chopped up their children. One could say, Medea acted as rationally as a major media company.
