I love the Golden Globes. They efficiently toss out statuettes for film and TV in one snappy show, ply celebrities with enough champagne to say silly things on camera, and insist on bringing back Ricky Gervais to host, knowing he’ll say something to tick off somebody important.
So, in the awards-show spirit, let’s get to who ought to win Sunday night.
Best Motion Picture – Drama: The King’s Speech
No question, The Social Network is the movie of the moment. It’s at the top of critics’ lists, and with an amazing script from Aaron Sorkin, kinetic directing from David Fincher, and terrific performances from all the actors, it should be. But call me fusty, I’m sticking with The King’s Speech.
