The Golden Globes
The award for Best Picture (Drama) went to "The Social Network," a smartly-written and well-acted account of Facebook's creation. It deserved the honor.
I disagree with the award for Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) which went to "The Kids Are All Right." That film was a lightweight comedy of little significance. It was mildy amusing but certainly not award-caliber.
The award show itself was not as good as past ceremonies and host Ricky Gervais (the British comedian who created "The Office") was unusually and unattractively meanspirited. Even the crowd groaned at several of his attacks. I haven't found Gervais funny in the past and his material tonight was inappropriate and lame.
Your thoughts on the awards, the show or the outfits?
Here's what Ann Hathaway wore. Can you imagine wearing something like this?
