Golden Globes 2009

Did you watch the broadcast? If not, you can check here for the listing of winners. Kate Winslet, who has yet to win an Oscar, won two GG awards, for The Reader and Revolutionary Road. She beat a lot of serious talent, including Meryl Streep and Angelina Jolie. As expected, Heath Ledger won for his portrayal of the diabolical Joker in The Dark Knight.

Films which the GG's made me want to see:
  • Slumdog Millionaire
  • The Wrestler
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Recount
  • Gran Torino
  • John Adams (technically a mini-series)

UPDATED: Does Entertainment Weekly not know American history? The Florida recount drama occurred in 2000, not 2004.
