    …and considering the fact that you are a FILM website…might you have an opinion on any of these awards? You might as well of direct sourced an AP article on the awards. The Golden Globes is one of the top 2 or 3 awards ceremonies for the field that your website is involved in and you submit this article 2 days later, almost as an afterthought.
    It would be nice to see more articles written by people who seem to care about the topic rather than just listing details of occurences. Perhaps you’re short on writers, money, or time, but the website has gotten increasingly dull recently. Aside from the fllm reviews, it’s hard to find an interesting voice or opinionated view on most topics. Might as well just post links to other websites who care to write more than 2 paragraphs per story.
    p.s. sorry for the debby downer-ism. Been a long-time fan of the website and hope that it’s not losing it’s edge.

      Well I do in fact have some opinions on these awards, as well as the Oscars, and I have written a number of articles expressing my dissatisfaction with things such as the Best Picture Oscar nominations and Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck being snubbed. Perhaps you should check those out.This was a more utilitarian article, and I wanted to get out all the information rather than spend the whole article telling how I felt about it. Sorry my voice wasn’t interesting enough for you.

        Sassy…that’s more like it.

        To clarify, I never said that your voice wasn’t interesting. What I said was that a number of recent articles have lacked one all together. My point was that. as you say this was a “utilitarian article”, that came out two days after the fact. Just curious why an article with no creative thought behind it took so long and why someone couldn’t give their take on it after a few days.

        ps. I’ve seen alot of reaction to the Oscars snubbing of Leo, Affleck, and Bigelow, but next to noone is questioning Tarentino not being nominated. Haven’t seen Beast’s or Amour, but Silver Lining’s Playbook seems like a “sweetheart” flick that’s getting just a bit more love than it may deserve. Thoughts anyone?
