As I don't necessarily agree with a lot of the picks, I do always have to remind myself that this is the olden Globes and really doesn't reflect the truth. But I am glad to see that the evil Twentieth Century Fox Network only received two awards, even if one of those awards was the BIG prize.
I am happy to see Mo'Nique take the Best Supporting Actress award as she undoubtedly deserved it, as well as Meryl Streep in her superb interpretation of Julia Styles. However, I don't agree with the decision of giving Sandra Bullock an award when the other nominated actresses were superbly better with exception of Gabourey Sidibe.
All in all, the Golden Globes are more for the people who feel the Academy awards are wrong 90% of the time. The Golden Globes are fun, but geez, they really aren't worth much except to hand out awards to those who probably wont win anything in the academy awards. The Golden Globes only focus one the obvious like music, acting, and the actual film. No awards go out to the film editors, art directors, and other talents that are hidden behind the screen. The exceptions are the truly phenomenal ones like Mo'Nique, Up!, and other great films and performances.
