We are one week away from the Golden Globe Awards, one of the most important award shows in Hollywood, second only to the Academy Awards and I feel it only appropriate to take a look at past awards shows in order to prepare you for this year’s. I always find the show at least somewhat enjoyable and like to see how the Golden Globe winners compare to the Oscar winners.
The Golden Globes should be taken with a grain of salt though since they tend to nominate some less than stellar films, for example “Dreamgirls” won the award for Best Picture – Comedy or Musical in 2006. Actors also tend to be nominated in pretty mediocre films, this year Sandra Bullock is nominated for the poorly reviewed “The Proposal” and Julia Roberts is nominated for “Duplicity.” The Golden Globes also do not have categories for the technical aspects of film like the Academy Awards do. For example the Golden Globes don’t have categories like “Best Cinematography” that I like so much. Anyway this year the Golden Globes will be hosted by Ricky Gervais so you know it should be a fun show. Here are a few of my favorite Golden Globe speeches from years past.
