    The Golden Globe Awards 2011

     

    And the winners are…

    Very predictable and will tell us to have no surprise about who is going to take the Oscars home. We all know that Christian Bale will win best supporting actor; Natalie Portman will win best actress; Colin Firth will win best actor, and "The Social Network" will win best picture. In fact, the biggest surprise of the night was the Globes’s best foreign film: Denmark’s “In A Better World”. For me “Biutiful” was the winner without a doubt. Let’s see if the Oscars can correct that hole in the space-time continuum left in Hollywood.

    Let’s continue now with the host of the golden night, Mr. Ricky Gervais. That strange and sad little man has a dark and twisted sense of humor that depends on a very unstable crutch, the one that takes people’s weakness and puts the finger inside it and twist it very hard to satirize them in a crude way without any niceness and sympathy. He just launches any dirty comment he can think of without caring of any consequences. In short, Ricky Gervais is a rude man but very honest, the kind that hurts but its disguise in cynicism and humor. At the end of the day he is just telling the truths that everyone is afraid of. Something that today we need to expose all the hypocrisy of the plastic world of Hollywood.

    So I admit I enjoy a lot his comedy, even if sometimes he goes too deep and out of content. He is just rude and that is part of who he is. I think he was like a wake-up call for Hollywood about the award-giving institutions. His hilariously aggressive jokes seemed to acknowledge that the Golden Globes in fact lack of the legitimacy as an awards-giving institution. And now with all the bribery scandals surrounding this year’s awards, it really makes you think if these winners really deserved it and were the best in their respective categories.

    For example, I do not agree with a few of the winners of the Television category. I was very surprise that Hugh Laurie did not win Best Actor Drama. I have to admit that I always found Steve Buscemi a little creepy, he looks like a vampire and he is always involve with some of Adam Sandler’s silly comedy. I know that his new HBO show is a hit but Hugh Laurie is just a great actor who deserves the recognition of his amazing character on “House”. After that, I cannot believe that Sofia Vergara did not take home the crown and it was stolen again from her by Jane Lynch. I admit I love ‘Sue Silvester’ in “Glee” but that character is one-dimensional in comparison to ‘Gloria’ in “Modern Family”, who is so amazing and so funny, with different facets about her. Something that brings me to the winner of the Best Comedy/Musical: “Glee”. Definitely I’m not happy that “Modern Family”, the Best Comedy on Television right now, was not awarded. I like “Glee” but it is not as good as “Modern Family”. Period.

    The rest is just history. Nothing so surprising or shocking to talk about ( I don’t want to talk about Christian Bale’s real accent; or Robert Downey Jr. and his amazing ability to assess a situation and sum it up pointedly telling Gervais to just run out of town; or about Natalie Portman’s creepy and crazy laugh; or the girl presenting the Best Animation with Justine Bieber because that girl is going down if any Bieber fan sees her on the street) . So, here is the list of winners, in case you have forgotten who did win what; because let’s face it I even have to look up for them because I don’t know what the half of them are about or who they are.
