Hey Ethan----

I was supposed to be putting together syllabi for classes, so what did I do instead?  I watched the Golden Globes.  I have to admit that I didn't expect BBM to win.  I guess that I am a  bit skeptical of these awards.  I remember a number of years ago when the critics were discussing the Oscar Awards and they were stating their personal preferences.  They made a comment to the effect that they did not think the best picture would win because of its controversial subject matter or because it was not a politically good move.  My thoughts were, "If you can't give it to the best, then that negates the signifcance of the award itself."  After Heath Ledger lost (and he looked damn cute!) to the fellow who played in Capote I almost turned off the TV, but I must say that I am impressed that the Award committee had the gumption to give it to the best and not be intimidated by the subject matter.  I am just so happy.  Why it's almost as if I were celebrating the birth of my first child (which would be sort of an impossibility, by the way!)  It's a great night!

I am in the same boat. Classes start tomorrow. I wish I could just lead the discussion for Brokeback Mountain.

I have to admit that I didn't expect BBM to win.  I guess that I am a  bit skeptical of these awards.  I remember a number of years ago when the critics were discussing the Oscar Awards and they were stating their personal preferences.  They made a comment to the effect that they did not think the best picture would win because of its controversial subject matter or because it was not a politically good move.  My thoughts were, "If you can't give it to the best, then that negates the signifcance of the award itself."  After Heath Ledger lost (and he looked damn cute!) to the fellow who played in Capote I almost turned off the TV, but I must say that I am impressed that the Award committee had the gumption to give it to the best and not be intimidated by the subject matter.  I am just so happy.  Why it's almost as if I were celebrating the birth of my first child (which would be sort of an impossibility, by the way!)  It's a great night!

Heath did look very gute, even right after he lost, he was smiling to someone. I could understand your frastration. I am sure to many fans here - Heath already was a winner. I am also very happy that the movie got recognized - Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Director. (I was actually more surprised that BBM won Best Song).

It is a wonderful accomplishment. Everyone involved in this movie should be proud of the film and commended for the impact the film has on people. It is a joy enough to make me jump up and down.

As I said before, this is only a beginning. I am actually happier that now more people will have a chance to see this movie and experience it. And maybe more PBS too.  ;D

First off -I can't thank you  all enough for keeping up this "live " GG coverage. Now, I'm STOKED-think of the buzz that will be created by this evening. Even without the acting awards-BEST: Screen Play, Song, PIC & DIRECTOR-THE GOLDEN GLOBES think about it -Brokeback for the WORLD! Now fellow Brokeback Posse members-we have a date with ... Oscar

I second your thoughts of Jack.  Thanks, Ethan et al. for keeping us abreast regarding all the news about BBM.  And I agree with you.  He may not have received the actual award in his hands, but as far as I'm concerned, Heath won the Oscar in my estimation!

I watched the awards, so disapointed that Heath Ledger didn't win.  A role like this comes only once in a career.  Phillip Hoffman is an outstanding actor with many roles under his belt which could be the reason he got the award instead of Heath Ledger.  Glad it got best song.

Don't want to  shoot your planes out of the sky but the conventional wisdom has it that as goes the Golden Globes so go the Oscars.  Hope it is proved wrong.  Would like to see it win best actor. 

I still think a lot of credit goes to the casting director.  Can onyone see another actor playing Ennis or Jack?

Aww, I just got up and read this - so gutted that Heath didnt win!  Its great it won Best Picture and Ang Lee couldnt have been more deserving of this, he did such a beautiful job, but Heath was the one we were all rooting for - oh well, next stop the Oscars :) everyone cross something!

Post by: dirtbiker on Jan 17, 2006, 02:11 AM
Boo hoo  :-\ I so wanted Heath to get Best Actor.  I think he had much more going for him as far as all the facets of acting needed to play Ennis, such as perfecting an accent foreign to him and also be able to act through his body language which I don't think any other movie character had to focus as much on -- all these facets make the character so uniquely human, compassionate, and believable.

On the bright side, I'm sooooooooo glad they got the other awards.

Yes, it was rude, and the other crack that Will (from Will & Grace) made in the preGG segment where he said "Brokeback was HILARIOUS" didn't make sense.  Was that supposed to be wise crack?  I don't get it.

We should keep this "glass 3/4 full" - 4 awards is huge!

Yeah, I wanted Heath to win, too (he was amazing), but Best Actor Drama was argueably the most hotly contested award of the night, and Hoffman has been around a long time doing great work for which he hasn't gotten much recognition. At least Heath lost out to an actor who did a great job portraying an LGBT character. I would have given it to Heath, but I kinda get it.

Best Supporting Actress is another matter - Michelle Williams got robbed - Rachel Weisz? - no way, no rationale.

Hmmm...kinda wonder why Jake G wasn't there - Anne Hathaway was - did I miss something? Also, I kinda winced at Dennis Quaid's intro of the BBM film clip - that business of BBM falling into a category of films that rhymes with "chick flick" - sophomoric!

Regardless, though, winning 4 awards - more that any other film - is HUGE, and we should feel good about that. Still, I hope the soon-to-be Ledgers aren't too disappointed - they were both extraordinary, and they should both be proud of what they have done, awards or no awards.
Title: Re: Your Thought & Reaction from Golden Globe
Post by: Jackennis on Jan 17, 2006, 03:07 AM
I agree that BBM won most of the important awards and we should be happy. I was disappointed that it didn't win the score. Heath spokes to the press in numbers of time that he didn't care if he didn't win but I think deep down he wants to. Maybe they are granting his wish. I don't know.

As for the comments made by Dennis and Will, it's interesting that they both had play gay role in their careers and yet they would make comments like that. What is the logic, I don't get it.

hi everyone,

and the Golden Globe for best drama of 2005 goes to...........

and best director......

:) :)

would've loved to see Heath Ledger win. :(

Could have done without Dennis Quaid's lame-ass joke. He said this film rhymes with "chick flick". The audience gave such a stale response. Kinda uncomfortable. Just dummifies the publics perception of such a beautiful and important film. I believe its one of the most important films of our generation.

I will post again.... :)

I agree with you, a great night for BBM. I also think that Ledger should have won because he outdid himself in that character.

Also noticed that Jake G wasn't there. When you add to the fact that he was uneasy at Jay Leno's and that he continually takes his distances from Ledger and the movie, I wonder about him.....

Maybe Jake was filming somewhere? Hopefully, he'll be at the Oscars though.

I couldnt watch it as it was on too late (1 am GMT), also they dont show it on the free channels and I dont have cable :(

I was glad that Lost won something at least, I love that show! :)

Im not surprised PS Hoffman got the award really, I can imagine the voters loving yet another true life story and Capote is quite a figure. However, Hoffman is one actor Ive never warmed to at all, something about him I just dont take to. Ive also only seen him playing sleazy characters (as in Talented Mr Ripley), so I doubt I go to see Capote...

Sadly, Dennis Quaid was a little jealous..I mean, he put out Sky High and the remake of Yours, Mine and Ours this year...his brother was in BBM, Dennis loves westerns and great roles. He probably would have jumped at the chance to play one of these cowboys---had he been young enough to get a part in BBM...more sad than mean...too bad for him.
Title: Re: Your Thought & Reaction from Golden Globe
Post by: tpe on Jan 17, 2006, 08:27 AM
It was a good night overall. Although I was prepared for it, I still feel that Ledger was more deserving of Best Actor. His relative youth and his not being a Hollywood 'insider' may have worked against him.

I had watched Capote, and although I thought that Philip Seymour Hoffman was very good, the performance was neither as difficult nor as subtle as Ledger's.

Ledger and Gyllenhaal are still relatively young, and I can only hope for greater things in their futures. The same certainly applies to William's acting, as well as Anne Hathaway's.

I loved it when Diana Ossana called Heath, Jake, Michelle, and Anne practically her children. It shows how deep the collaboration was in this movie.

Lastly, when he saluted the cast on accepting best director, Ang Lee thanked Jake first, which I think was a wonderful and heartfelt touch, as I think Ang Lee wanted Gyllenhaal's contribution to be acknowledged in a ceremony where he was very much invisible.

I was a little confused on Dennis Quaid"s introduction of "Brokback Mountain"  What was this rhymes with "chick-flix" comment all about?  Just want to know.  Sounds like homophobia coming to the podium.  I know "frog" will know, let's ask him.

I was ecstatic that BBM won the awards it did and was literally jumping up and down. They definitely deserved the awards they got and I only wish that Heath's groundbreaking performance was reckognized with a Golden Globes. Well, there's always the Oscars and as one of my friends pointed out maybe the man that won for Capote got the award in part because he was getting on in his years and it was one of the last chances to earn an Oscar whereas Heath still has his whole career in front of him. Still, I share Toadily's sentiment of "which performace will be remembered in 10 years, hmm?"

Ang's speech was so touching, as was Diana's and I only wish Jake had been able to attend, I know he would have wanted to.

I was pretty much outraged by Dennis Quaid introduction, isn't the point of the 'for your consideration' person to illuminate the greatness of the movie, not to belittle it?

In other, non BBM related news, here are my picks and pans for GG Award Night fashion:

Fashion Queens of the Night: Charlize Theron, Kiera Knightely, Geena Davis (best dressed). Ziyi Zhang, Penelope Cruise, Renee Zelleweger, Evangeline Lily

Fashion Misses: Marcia Cross, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johannson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway (Worst Dressed- I'm sorry Anne!), Melanie Griffith (ouch)

More to come when I'm not in French class!

OMG, I'm just so happy....I didn't get the chance to watch the golden globes but my mom informed me about the winners while I was at school this morning ( text messages do wonders..:D )....actually, she just wrote "brokeback mountain got 4 awards" and after reading that, I screamed....during a period ( but our teacher's kinda whacked so she didn't notice, although my classmates did :P ). and then I asked which 4....so she told me. I was kinda disappointed Heath didn't win, but what the heck. best picture? best screenplay? best director? can't get any better than that!

Well it is, after all, the real world.  We did great.  Four awards is no small thing.  Still you would have thought that Heath would have won on charactor development alone. Anyway, you know, it's so ironic... this is just the kind of thing that would have happened to Ennis.

Hey froggy..hope you got some sleep last night. I feel the same way. I gotta run to a class and will follow up later when I get time. I saw the tape briefly this morning as I was getting ready to leave. Ang speech brought my tears again.

You could feel BBM was an emotional ride for the production. Dennis Quaid  >:( -- not cool.

I thought it is wonderful for Ang to get the Best Director from Clint Eastwood - one of the cowboy icons.

Funny, I did not notice Denzel; but I noticed that Eastwood had trouble saying Brokeback Mountain.  Makes you kind of wonder if Hollywood is really 'gay friendly.  There are many Gay people of power in Tinseltown; but it has taken so long to get anyting decent with gay characters.  You begin to wonder.  I'm still counting on BBM winning Oscars for Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay at least;  but I will be disappointed if the enthusiasm continues to be this dreary for it.

To the Dennis Q remark:

Someone please help me with how someone could come out on a stage in front of virtually millions of viewers and make a completely irresponsible, disrespectful, and offensive comment about a film in which his own brother was cast?  Even if you are thinking it, what possesses one to feel compelled to make some type of public remark like that?  The way he delivered the rude remark smacked of arrogance and "I'm so clever to come up with something that folks have to stop and think about".  One can only conjecture that perhaps he and his brother had a falling out over something and so wanted to use the awards forum to get back at his brother?  (Yes, I'm probably stretching for something here.)  Maybe he had too much liquor?  Hmmm....if memory serves me....Isn't it true that during his relationship with Ms. Ryan that there were regular issues with chemical dependence?  A sad testimony to have him stoop to such low extremes for the purposes of a cheap and desperate attempt at humor.  I hope the Academy gently whispers into Mr. DQ's ear that he'd be better off watching the Oscars from home rather than presenting them this year.

After watching the red carpet and GG awards, I didn't feel that BBM had 7 nominations, the one receiving the most.

I felt BBM was an underdog and finally climbed to the top to snap 4 wins. I don't think GG or the Red Carpet program did a justice for BBM.

Is it just me or everyone else feels the same way?

I have to say - the crew and cast from BBM are very humble and probably told to stay low key (did you see those from Desparate Wives?). The BBM wins last night was pretty much like Ennis's character - unattached most of time and only shined occasionally.

As soon as I heard "gay cowboys" from Dennis Q - I was already upset. He needs to be boooooooooooooooed. Also why did he say BBM as "controversial" movie? 

It may be controvisal but it is not for him to say as a presenter of the movie.

Yes after listening to Shamus comments at the post conference he said that the Golden Lion was a big deal cause they were worried they wouldn't even get noticed and taken seriously.  Can you imagine?  So this is big and they were mature about it, did you see Shamus head go down coyly when someone brought up Oscar?  They can smell it I am sure.

I totally agree...about the cast being low key, about stupid comments made, and so on!

I scanned the net for articles...and was very disappointed...now it's not a Gay Movie that sweeps awards, it's a Cowboy Romance...and in most articles, it felt like the writers were saying that BBM should be thankful they had won so many awards already.

I stopped reading articles...when I came across people leaving homophobic comments ...



NB: I also found this on www.oscarwatch.com :

Brokeback's Sweep a Globe Rarity

"For a film to win screenplay, director and picture at the globes is quite rare. It happens, just not very often. The last time was when American Beauty swept most of the awards leading up to the Globes and the Oscars in 1999 (SAG, WGA, DGA, etc). And before that, you have to go back to Schindler's List. And then Dances With Wolves. What do these three films have in common? They also were sweeping most every other award as well. That is some awards heft, folks. Weirdly enough, Born on the Fourth of July also swept but the Oscar went to Driving Miss Daisy. So there is precedent for the film to go on NOT to win the Oscar. It is more likely it will. "

Im 99 percent certain it will win an Oscar, I mean it's an epic for one thing.  Good Night and Good Luck and Walk and Line don't have the sweeping epic quality. And if they accept Jake as a supporting actor I think he is in, HEath is may be tight, but ah...like he doesn't have the damndest great career and life ahead of him regardless.  Ang will also win for sure, for the film and out of respect for his contribution to cinema in general.  Munich isn't that popular a movie and Clooney is a rookie in that. 

Those are my predictions.

Comments about Heath's not getting the GG:

Many critics felt that Best Actor Drama has not been so hotly contested in many years - to be NOMINATED in a year full of strong male performances was huge! Many also felt that the race came down to Hoffman and Ledger - that means, informally, Heath came in 2nd - f-ing great for a 26yo who never showed this kind of emotional range and intensity on the screen before.

Comment on Ossana's and Ang Lee's acceptance speeches:

DAMN, these people are classy, classy, classy - such admirable restraint and humility!

Comment on Eric McCormack and Dennis Quaid:

I hope you 2 grow up someday and learn to act like responsible adults instead of twittery goons!

Moving on to the Academy Awards:

Regardless of whether or not Heath wins Best Actor, his was an important, seminal performance that people will still be discussing long after I am fertilizer. YES, we should all keep the faith, but, remember that many of the great performances of film history did not win Oscars. Here's some examples:

Bette Davis for All About Eve

Gloria Swanson for Sunset Boulevard

Marlon Brando for Streetcar Named Desire

Audrey Hepburn for Breakfast at Tiffany's

Regardless of your age, I'm sure all of you know 2-3 of these, and these films are all at least 45 YEARS OLD!

The GGs and Oscars are very nice, indeed, but they don't necessarily build legends. Heath Ledger as Ennis IS film legend in the making, and we've all had the privilege to be here and see it.

Sorry if I sound like a film teacher, but I wanna see :) :) :) :) :) on those faces, people!

Yes that was really infuriating. I just can't figure out whether that joke was written by the show writers or made up by Quaid. I can't imagine the show greenlighting such a innappropriate comment but maybe I'm wrong. And even if it was written that way Quaid could have not said it. Very dissapointing.

Good question, was that pre-arranged?  I hope not for their sakes. I really do think he thought it was funny and he is in this satirical comedy coming up and wants to be associated with funny.  But ugh what a bomb!  And the thing is he appeared in "Far from Heaven" which was a beautiful movie that addressed homophobia.

Yeah it was really shocking, coming either from the Globe writers or from Quaid. I also agree its probably more likely to have been Quaid's doing but what on earth was he thinking  ???

Otherwise the program was good and I was happy about BBMs wins. However, today I'm feeling kind of let down about Heath and the way the clips/intros were handled. I'm really tired of the jokes already. I want BBM to be treated with respect. Hopefully this will be made up for at the Oscars.

Sadly, Dennis Quaid was a little jealous..I mean, he put out Sky High and the remake of Yours, Mine and Ours this year...his brother was in BBM, Dennis loves westerns and great roles. He probably would have jumped at the chance to play one of these cowboys---had he been young enough to get a part in BBM...more sad than mean...too bad for him.

I was great in Far from Heaven... playing a gay role. He was never that good since then. What did he had on his mind? ???

ethan, I cannot agree more.  They certainly LOOKED and FELT like the underdog.  The E channel irritated me a bit by showing more of everybody else, which is probably to be expected from Hollywood's factionalism.  Nevertheless, even with 'Walk the Line' taking a bit of the spotlight, 'Brokeback Mountain' is still the film to beat, come the Oscars.

I certainly got the feeling that they were not as glamourous as the rest.  And look at Ang Lee -- talk about humble!

Let's hope this unpretentious look would work in their favor.  A lot of people complain of all the supposed hype this movie is getting.  Whatever hype is generated, it certainly is not coming from this loveable cast and crew...

I quickly saw GG again last night - FFing non-BBM parts. A few reactions -

Did you notice that Heath was applauding for himself when his name was announced in the award of best actor?

After Hilary Swank announced "Heath Ledger" - Heath just applauded with everyone else for 2 seconds then realized he should not have. He turned to Michelle and said something like (from reading his lips) - Did I applaud myself?  Leno also mentioned this last night in his interview with Heath. Heath responded - it was kinda embarrassing to applaud yourself. He did it because the award lasted for about 6 hours and he just kept applauding throughout the show. When it came to his name, he just applauded.

Too bad that Michelle and Heath didn't win. I could feel their disappointment at the end when BBM won the Best Picture. For the movie like BBM who succeeded by the portrayals of characters, it is hard to imagine that it didn't get any acting award.

I hope BBM will follow the example of Million Dollar Baby last year at Oscar which won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor.

A lot of people have been wondering why Jake didn't show up for the Golden Globes.

Of course, he's been nominated in that category by the SAG awards, the BAFTA awards, and knocking on wood here for you know what. So, it's been great. But he came to our pre-Globes party. He's been a good sport."

Yes, this is what I had heard: that the HFPA decided to consder Gyllenhaal and Ledger as CO-LEAD ACTORS and invariably selected Ledger.  In my opinion, Ledger is fully deserving of the nomination for best actor in the GG (he also should have won), but Gyllenhaal FULLY deserved the nomination in the best SUPPORTING actor category.
