Prepping For the Globes

The Golden Globes are 32 hours away as this post goes up, and I'm pretty excited.

What I'm excited about is seeing all the stars of this years season all in one place. Photo shoots that will have Jeff Bridges alongside Morgan Freeman and George Clooney.

I want to see Carey Mulligan and Gabby Sidibe walk the red carpet.

And I'm excited to see who actually wins in some of these races. The globes often chases different winners than the Academy so it could easily be new speeches by different stars.

Not to mention, the jovial and relaxed atmosphere (mixed with a little intoxication) can often make these speeches some of the best of the season.

So, needless to say, I'm excited for the Sunday night ceremony.

Do you have anything you do to prepare for the ceremony? Any movies your rushing out to see this weekend in preparation, or perhaps a DVD your going to be watching?

We'll be watching the Hurt Locker in our house tonight. How about you?

We watched Hurt Locker Tuesday night, Up in the Air Friday night, and Sherlock Holmes tonight.

I understand "The Hurt Locker" is a pretty intense movie. My b-in-law was wondering if those guys really act that way. When I described the EOD guys I knew as "crazy adrenaline junkies," he confirmed the movie was probably pretty accurate.

I love the Globes. I have heard good things about Hurt Locker, but haven't seen it yet.

I had a delicious double feature today: The White Ribbon and A Single Man. The former was a complex, but somewhat unsatisfying piece, but the latter completely blew me away.

@ anthony - i'm intrested to hear your thoughts on those films. Sounds like you an AK are doing a good catching the big shows...well, maybe not Sherlock, but as I recall AK has more knowledge on The Holmes then me, so I'm sure she has some unique thoughts.

@ Adam, we watched it last night as mentioned in the most, yes, it's probably pretty accurate then. It's intense.

@ Danny King - nice work...after watching Cache I think watching M.Haeneke's films in the theather might be an interesting experience, but I could imagine the potential for lack of satisfaction. Unless of course there was a discussion group in the lobby following the film.
