The Golden Globes happened last night and, while I stayed up and watched the entire fucking thing, it was all boring as fuck and I’m pretty sure Sandra Bullock in Bird Box gave out half the awards since half of the winners made no fucking sense.
Just a heads up: I’m not going to go through a list of the winners, because a) you can find them somewhere else online pretty easily, and b) I don’t want to bore anyone to death.
Basically a bunch of shit won that I haven’t seen or don’t even want to see anyway.
Sure, a lot of cool films were nominated for a ton of stuff: Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, A Star is Born, Destroyer, yadda yadda yadda, but the movie that really took home the two of the biggest prizes (best picture drama and best actor drama) was mother fucking Bohemian Rhapsody. A movie that critics and audiences both found incredibly underwhelming and kind of lame.
Seriously, it has like 53% on Rotten Tomatoes and I’ve yet to meet one person who said it was really good. Yet, her it is, beating out four of the most critically acclaimed movies of the year. Not even just critically acclaimed! Movies that were BELOVED by audiences, too! People fucking LOVE Black Panther, A Star is Born, and BlacKkKlansman, but here’s fucking BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY winning best picture. What is this shit even?
Green Book won best picture comedy/musical as well as best supporting actor and best screenplay. I haven’t seen that movie, but apparently a lot of people are pissed about that, too.
Here’s the thing, Bohemian Rhapsody is a movie about Freddie Mercury, and apparently gay people think it’s a shit movie. Green Book is a movie about racism, and apparently black people think it’s a shit movie.
I know a lot of people say Hollywood is kind of out of touch, but last night they seemed out of touch, sight, taste, sound, and smell. How I watched the whole thing is fucking beyond me.
