SPECIAL ROUND-UP OF GOLDEN GLOBES NEWS
WE PUBLISHED A SPECIAL ROUND-UP OF NEWS FROM TWITTER ON THE GOLDEN GLOBES:
QPORIT GG SPECIAL -
See also our round-up of nominees and winners. (There's also a link here to an older round-up of news about the GG. )
QPORIT: GOLDEN GLOBES 2011
Ricky Gervais was funny, but very nasty -- almost evil in some remarks. Nasty can be funny, but that doesn't make it less nasty.
DeNiro was very funny. (Too bad some of what he said was not just bleeped off the air, but totally silenced.)
Robert Downey Jr. almost had a good routine about sleeping (or not) with the female actress nominees. But Natalie Portman totally nailed the story about who wanted to sleep with whom. (And he did, and she's expecting.)
Michael Douglas wished there were an easier way to get a standing ovation.
I'm glad Aaron Sorkin & Social Network won. They were terrific. Jesse Eisenberg should have won also. That was an amazing acting job.
Black Swan, Barney's Version, and The King's Speech, GG winners all, were all shown -- in fact, featured -- last year at the Hamptons International Film Festival. (http://qporit.blogspot.com/2010/09/first-preview-2010-hamptons.html)
