GOLDEN GLOBES ARE LAME

By / 01.14.08

The Golden Globe Awards Celebration 30-minute press conference announced its winners yesterday, and besides Juno not winning anything, Atonement took home best drama.

Not since EW named Jerry Bruckheimer one of its 50 smartest people in Hollywood has one decision so vividly illustrated an organization’s complete irrelevance.  I could’ve gotten blown while I was watching it and it still would’ve been the least enjoyable movie going experience I had all year. 

So who votes on these?  The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  Yup, foreigners, it figures.  You just know this is some French plot to prove how bad English-language movies are, in order to promote a French film about a woman who never leaves her bedroom but smokes a lot and shows her beaver.  And in doing so shows us the true meaning of passion.

Full list of winners after the jump.
