All I can wish for in this life is to see a slaughter when I turn on the television. More even when I encounter an awards show. It is common knowledge that the Globes winners are picked by the Hollywood Foreign Press Asscoation (HFPA). With the complacency and acceptance of the mediocre that we have come to accept from the mainstream critical press, the winners will always be boring.
This year is no exception, but when one tuned in they didn't get the violence they would hope for. No, they only received horrors like The Kids Are Alright torturing us with a nomination and then murdering us with winning the award for Best Comedy or Musical. The competent film Social Network won best picture and the competent director David Fincher won best director. This though and everything else just added to lethargy, the so-so made-for-awards film The Fighter won and actor who goes crazy equals award was Natalie Portman. Such was so mind-numbing it was a tragedy for humanity to deal with the fact this not only was happening somewhere on the planet, but that such energy was put into something like it in course of human history. So, like me, you turned it off and hoped for the deaths of the HFPA, who obviously get paid off by studios to make their blockbusters or films that are 1/3 blockbusters (anything 'indie' studios put out) get a couple more ticket sales because the viewership doesn't know the sham got caught.
We now have grounds for tribunals and an organized front is in order to enact such hearings. Who amongst the readers of this blog will be the spark that leads to such a beautiful bloody spectacle?
