Until this year, the only big time film industry awards show I had ever been to was the Independent Spirit Awards and it’s been almost 10 years since the last time – and who can forget Elvis Costello’s “surprise” opening of the show with (“What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding?”). I had never [...]
Here’s a small Marquee Blog post I wrote, over at CNN.com, also, here is the full list of BAFTA nominations, followed by the press release. Enjoy!
2011 NOMINATIONS (presented in 2012) BEST FILM THE ARTIST Thomas Langmann THE DESCENDANTS Jim Burke, Alexander Payne, Jim Taylor DRIVE Marc Platt, Adam Siegel THE HELP Brunson Green, [...]
So I did reasonably well. 18-7. Woody tripped me up, my only wrong guess on the film side, going 13-1 but I went 5-6 on the TV side.
Tilda Swinton and David Bowie, time shifted by 29 years. Thanks for the Photoshopping to John Bernstein!

5:53 – My 1st hour scorecard? 5-3. That’s pretty piss poor.
5:52 – Yay! Even Madonna gets played off!
5:48 – Am I wrong in thinking that playing off a non-English speaker because it takes him longer to get the words out in his second language is in bad taste?

Tonight I’ll be blogging the Globes live and splitting my posts into 3 1 hour blocks. Check back often!
