Golden GlobesPosted: December 17, 2011
Nominations have been announced this week. And it turns out Ricky Gervais is hosting the ceremony again. He’s tweeted that it’s going to be “biblical” (i.e. no one will believe a word he says.) I think we can guess the formula:
“Hi, I’m Ricky Gervais. [insert The Office pat-on-the-back reference] *drink some beer* [mention a 3D film and joke how the acting in it was one-dimensional]…”
I don’t even know why I’m blogging this news. No one cares about the Golden Globes. In terms of prestige, it’s just below a “World’s Greatest Granddad” coffee mug.
One pleasant surprise, however, is the nomination of Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Best Actor: Comedy in ’50/50.’ It was certainly a praiseworthy performance. Then again, he’s up against the formidable Cannes Best Actor winner, Jean Dujardin for ‘The Artist.’ I would make a “probably has less than a 50/50 chance of winning now” joke, but I’m clearly above that.
