"Argo," "Les Miserables" Top 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards!  


Tina Fey and Amy Poehler rocked it hosting the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC. Ben Affleck's "Argo" took home the Best Picture Drama while Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" won Best Picture, Comedy/Musical. Much like the Critics' Choice Movie Awards before it, Affleck's picture led the winners of the Hollywood Foreign Press' Golden Globe Movie Awards!

(Follow me on facebook.com/MannyTheMovieGuy for my minute by minute look at the Globes!)

Mychael Danna, who was just recently awarded the Frederick Loewe award for film composing at the 24th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival wins Best Original Score for LIFE OF PI! President Bill Clinton received a standing ovation as he introduced Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."

Jodie Foster accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award with a sorta yes, sorta no coming out speech which really culminated into something like protecting her privacy. And then she proceeded to say she's quitting from acting! She would dedicate her next phase in Hollywood writing!

And Ben Affleck, famously snubbed by the Oscars for not nominating the actor/helmer in the Best Director category, won Best Director for ARGO! So Oscar, ARGO f...yourself!!!!!

For Best Supporting Actor, Christoph Waltz surprised everyone by winning the trophy for his splendid performance in "Django Unchained." Hugh Jackman won Best Actor Comedy/Musical for "Les Miserables," stealing the award from the highly-praised Bradley Cooper from "Silver Linings Playbook."

Jessica Chastain won the Best Actress, Drama for "Zero Dark Thirty," while Jennifer Lawrence took home the Best Actress, Comedy/Musical trophy for "Silver Linings Playbook." The daughter of Frances Fisher and Clint Eastwood, Frances is Miss Golden Globe, while Michael J. Fox's son, Sam Fox, is Mr. Golden Globes.

Movie Reviews: "Gangster Squad" and "Promised Land" 


Two movies to choose from this weekend, we have “Gangster Squad” and “Promised Land.” In “Gangster Squad,” Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, and Sean Penn star in the action drama about Mickey Cohen (Penn) and the LAPD cops determined to take him down.

In “Promised Land,” Matt Damon and John Krasinski star and co-wrote the screenplay about fracking with Damon and Frances McDormand as sales people for a gas company that wants to tap into the natural resources of a small town. Damon returns to the loving arms of his “Good Will Hunting” director, Gus Van Sant, for this film.

So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:

Take That Academy! "Argo" Tops Critics' Choice Movie Awards! Oscar-snubbed Ben Affleck Wins Best Director 


"Argo" F...yourself! Ben Affleck's "Argo" was the big winner at the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. The film won Best Picture with Affleck, infamously snubbed by the Academy, took home the Best Director award. I say...YAY!

Voted by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, of which I'm a proud member, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards have been regarded as a better Oscar predictor than the Golden Globes. Heck, we even give talented directors their well-deserved praise! HA!

Affleck received the loudest standing ovation after winning the Best Director award for "Argo." Also receiving standing ovation was Daniel Day-Lewis for his Best Actor win for "Lincoln." Jessica Chastain won Best Actress for "Zero Dark Thirty," while Philip Seymour Hoffman took home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for "The Master" and Anne Hathaway (another hurray!) received the Best Supporting Actress Award for "Les Miserables."

"Lincoln," which received a record-breaking 13 nominations, ended up with 3 including Day-Lewis, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Original Score.

The ceremony took place at Barker Hanager in Santa Monica and aired live on the CW. Oh, fans also got their chance to vote for Best Film Franchise. And the winner was...."Twilight" because apparently, it's better than "The Lord of the Rings," "Harry Potter," and "Star Wars."

Denzel Washington, "Flight" Screenwriter Talk About Their Oscar Nominations 


Robert Zemeckis' "Flight" received a total of 2 Oscar nominations including Denzel Washington for "Flight" and Best Original Screenplay for John Gatins. Here's what the nominees say about their nods (to see complete 2013 Oscar nominations, click here)

Denzel Washington - FLIGHT

“ ‘Flight’ was one of the most challenging roles I’ve ever had in my career, and it was an honor to be directed by Robert Zemeckis. It’s always nice to be asked back to the show, and it will be fun to share the evening with our nominated screenwriter John Gatins."

John Gatins - FLIGHT

I’m truly humbled. This nomination represents the 12 years I spent writing the script married with the most amazing performance by Denzel Washington, and capped by the genius vision of Robert Zemeckis. Words cannot explain the honor I feel to have my name on the same poster as Bob, Denzel, John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, Melisa Leo, James Badge Dale and Kelly Reilly.
