And the winner is…

January 18th, 2006

I am happy to announce that the winner is Brokeback Mountain. It swept the Golden Globes, winning four awards. I saw this movie and loved it. I highly recommend it to everyone. Yes, I admit the combination of gays and cowboys does seem to be a set up for a skit on Mad TV. However, this movie is quite the opposite. This is a love story in every sense of the meaning. I am not going to say that the fact that the two male characters in love isn't an issue, it is. That's what makes this love story so compelling. Congratulations to the director, Ang Lee, and actors, Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, for portraying a homosexual love story as real love with real feelings. I only hope with the success of this film, we, as a society will be one step closer to accepting same sex relationships and marriage. Alright, I will now step off my soap box. I just had to let that off my chest.

As for the television side of the awards, no one show dominated the stage. I must say I was elated when Canadian girl, Sandra Oh won for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Grey's Anatomy. I wanted her to win for three reasons: 1) She's talented and deserves to be recognized; 2) As I mentioned earlier, she's a Canuck; 3) I wanted to see her dress. Ok, at least 1 out of the 3 reasons is legit enough for wanting a person to win an award.
