2011 Golden Globes: Nikki's Non-Analysis
Here I am, only for informational purposes, posting the 2011 Golden Globes nominations held by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with the awards to be broadcast live on NBC on January 16th. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: it's a completely meaningless awards show by a scandal-riddled organization on a network desperate for ratings. That's why I opt out of analyzing the nominations every year: because the Golden Globes have zero integrity. Studios ...............

That's really cool, way to go, Inception! :grooving:
For me, any year that Christopher Nolan, Darren Aronofsky, and David Fincher are nominated for Best Director awards is a good year. :)

And the Golden Globes don't seem to have much less integrity than the Oscars. :noclue: I'm not saying that either awards ceremony is great, but what else is there?

Inception #1 on IMDb top 10 movie list for 2010:
http://www.imdb.com/list/dsiQRcUZMqo/
A mind-blowingly original thriller from the mind of Christopher Nolan, executed to near perfection on-screen to create the best in-cinema viewing experience for me in nearly 25 years. The last time I left a cinema feeling this good about a movie was for Aliens in 1986. This is intelligent film-making at its absolute best.

I can't say I'm too surprised by this, it was one of the only mainstream movies out there that was semi though-provoking... Then again, I am kind of an indie movie snob :laugh:
What if I wasn't Christian right now? That'd be awkward. ... Could you imagine if I was like, hm. I celebrate Ka-wanza.

It's so funny when people try to label me a cool, indie girl. No, I’m pretty sure I was in a movie called I Downloaded a Ghost.

Deeply saddened by the death of Pete Postlethwaite today. He was an amazing Fischer Sr. and was a tremendous actor overall.
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

Pete was a fantastic actor. I'm very sorry to hear of his tragic passing. He will be very sadly missed and will always be the man who "defeated the T-Rex" to me. :(

He'll always be Kobayashi to Spacey's Verbal Kint in my heart.

Bummer about his death. He was a good actor, and I wish his family all the best.

Never knew his name prior to Inception, but I'd seen him a few times before. Quite a talented actor.

:rip:

Pretty good list overall too, at least the top 5 or so. Same top 3 as me except I would've put The King's Speech in place of Black Swan and declared the top 3 a tie.

I hate to say it but I reckon The Social Network will nab this one, the amount of 'Best Picture' awards it's picked up is borderline ridiculous.

As much as I'd like it to win, I'm pretty sure Black Swan is gonna win. It's getting way too much hype to stop really.

The Social Network is pretty much sweeping the awards, and I'd say deservingly. Fantastic film, like I've said repeatedly it's among my top 3 along with Inception and The King's Speech (which I believe will sweep the best actor/actress awards, except for lead actress which Natalie Portman will get).

Any time Inception is up for People's Choice-style awards it usually wins so :D but the fact that Eclipse is hanging around is not good. :totallysick:

Yeah, but it saddens me to see Inception lumped in with crap movies like those... Toy Story 3 is fantastic but Iron Man 2, Alice in Wonderland, and Eclipse were garbage. I understand Inception has wide appeal but I'd like to see it win/get nominated for more critic-chosen awards. I have no doubt it'll win quite a few less important Oscars, perhaps best visual effects and best cinematography.

To see Robert Pattinson be put in a poll with fantastic actors like Johnny Depp, Leo, and RDJ is a bit disheartening as well... I sometimes question the tastes of the human race in general :laugh: .

I quite enjoyed Alice in Wonderland. :noclue: On the other hand I worked on Twilight: Eclipse and yet I still refuse to watch it. Or maybe I refuse to watch it because I worked on it? Hard to say, normally I want to see exactly how the things I saw in real life end up looking on film/video, but in this case I don't want to see the things I saw in real life on film because seeing them once was enough. :laugh:

Robert Pattinson should not be on any lists with actors like Johnny Depp, Leo and RDJ. Image
