Buscemi was good but IMO he wasn't even the best actor on his own show. (Pitt and Huston). I thought Cranston should have won, as good as Breaking Bad is, season 3 was stellar.

Very happy for Chris Colfer, his character Kurt on Glee always has such a meaningful storyline and is the heart of that show.

Boring. ZZZZZZZzzzzzz. Hey De Niro, how about acting as if you cared about getting the award?

The Golden Globes are a joke and the only reason I watched was to see Ricky Gervais yet they had him do nothing. Complete waste of time.

The Tourist was a musical or comedy? If it is, it sure wasn't marketed that way.

Agree about the show. Total snoozefest. The presenters were painful to watch. Matt Damon and Robert Downey's schticks were cringe-inducing.

Other than Leo and Bale, I wouldn't have picked any of those winners.

I have the growing sense that Rolling Stone and others assigned (way way) too much social importance to Social Network, and now everyone's afraid of looking like a know-nothing by questioning it. It's all a sham, IMO. Social Network was a good movie. But it was innaccurate and if it defined the last decade, apparently it was in a different reality I was not aware of. I found it interesting to see how someone interpreted those events, but in no way did I connect to it in a way that it defined me or my friends or my experiences.

Yeah, you would think that Zuckerberg invented the internet and not Al Gore :)

Honestly, everyone already communicated by e-mail before Facebook came along. Other than people finding you that you never wanted to, Facebook hasn't changed our society in any profound way.

Yep, just another time waster. And that nerdy dude winning another Golden Globe for the sitcom? Pul-leeze!

For all the hate the Oscars get, this is certainly worse than that.

It used to be one truly rowdy party. They talk, now, about everyone in the audience being ****** but the audience used to get really ******. And high. Then the broadcast went nation-wide and legit. It's a shadow of it's former self.

The first year it was broadcast live it was only beamed to L.A. ZsaZsa Gabor was drunk beyond belief and started talking about the men she'd known and named names. This is before the 5 second delay. Ricky Gervais' scripted hi-jinks couldn't begin to compete with that night.

I was pretty young but I learned a lot of slang names for body parts that night.

Colin Firth was the right choice as well.

Of those nominated, yes. But it's hard for me to believe there weren't better performances when compared to James Franco, Ryan Gosling, and Mark Wahlberg. That's a weak list of actors.

In hindsight, Bale seemed like the lead in The Fighter to me, but it might be because his performance was SO STRONG. I dunno.

I would love for Bale to have been nominated as the leading actor (though there is no way since the movie is about Mickey Ward, not Dicky) so Geoff Rush could win the supporting actor award. Those two were the best male actors this year and unfortunately they are in the same category.

Friday morning I'd never even heard of it. Since them (just watching regular ol' TV) I've seen the trailer three times. "All Good Things" got a major write up in the NY Times. All of a sudden it's all Ryan all the time. Blue Valentine is getting some major props within the industry. Mr. Gosling will be getting a lot of use from his tux.
