Brokeback Mountain Wins Best Picture at Golden Globes [PUKE Aert]

Posted on 01/16/2006 10:59:33 PM PST by goonie4life9

I just thought I'd let my fellow freepers know that their favorite movie, Brokeback Mountain, just won Best Picture at the Golden Globes. My gf tells me when they accepted the award, they were "stunned!"

Any movie that is protested by Conservatives gets moved to the head of the list by the anti-family values folks in Hollywierd.

Actually, I thought you misspelled "stunned" and really meant the word "stoned." It makes more sense that way! ;-)

Not surprised. This is the kind of politically correct stuff that gets them all tingly and excited. Don't care what else it wins, even watching the previews made me sick.

Hell, this is no surprise - After all, according to our 'Historians' every important person in History was Gay so why not two sheep herders? Watching Lincoln on the History Channel right now and I've just been informed by no less an authority on the lives of great people than Gore Vidal that Lincoln was Gay as well. /sarc

Wow. That's a surprise. Totally out of the blue.

Gosh, you think it will win the Oscar as well?

Well, of course they won. They'll sweep the Oscars too. Just like The Passion of the Christ DIDN'T! Nothing unexpected here. The only question is: will liberal institutions like Hollyweird EVER become a TEENSE more honest about their obvious liberalism? I guess no, but you never know; it's so blatant already.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED!

Hollyweird choose a bad movie (according to a co-worker) simply because it doesn't represent conservative values and pushes the homosexual agenda.

Maybe it's a different kind of film (I really know nothing about this stuff) but it wasn't even in the top 10 in the box office the past two weeks according to my USA Today. Is the movie selling well?

Good question - especially when in my time zone a special two hour "24" was on at the same time.

What a surprize, Hollywood got to give another big FU to the rest of America, by nominating and awarding this movie. Not that those awards matter anyway.

I watched it. Curiosity I guess! Clooney was trying to make it political right from the start. Chris Rock and some other black person went on and on about MLK day. Other than that it wasn't very political at all. And none of the winners were a surprise and the program was boring. Geena Davis won of course. From the clip from her program she isn't much of an actress, certainly not convincing as a world leader. It's all about Hillary to have that female Prez program and then to award it of course.

The obsession with Brokeback is tiresome when there are other "pokes in the eye" among the Golden Globe winners. Here are three:

Felicity Hoffman won for "TransAmerica" about a male-to-female transgender.
Geena Davis won (softening us up for Hillary) for "Commander in Chief"
George "I coulda won it for Kerry" Clooney won for the anti-oil Syriana

It appears to be an actual pulp fiction magazine cover (with "Brokeback Mtn" text added).

I didn't watch the Golden Globes; they were long over before they begin on the West Coast. I watched the second hour of '24' with the sound off. That show is silly.

If 'Brokeback' is was finely a crafted film as the buzz has been saying perhaps it deserved to win regardless of the subject matter. I think many folks are still carrying a grudge because The Passion, a film essentially done outside the system, was ignored by the insiders of Hollywood.

it doesn't matter how many awards bm wins, straight guys will never go see it, so it is doomed to lose money at the box office. (hint: dvd rentals won't be so hot except here in sf).

Let's wait for the "People's Choice" awards. Maybe that'll burst the gay agenda bubble. I'm sick of queer crap being forced onto the public. I think gays are just hetero-phobic.

I saw Broke Back Mountain. It was a good film but I can't see it being best picture. Maybe that's just me. I liked Crash a lot.

You are so right...

Please note that this award is connected and set up by the Hollywood FOREIGN press members. That's 'foreigners' folks and media, to boot! Do you think they represent the mainstream audience in the USA?
@#$% NO!
This is another jokey award show like the hundreds of others. Maybe one of the oldest but to win you only have to have the majority out of 100 or so votes possible.
Does this sound like a mouse or lion size public award vote?
Mostly mousey or more like it foreign rat.

I'd say that any award show for a movie is lame. Even the Academy Awards was originally just a publicity stunt to garner anti-union sentiment against SAG (or whatever it was called back then).

My advice: You think a movie is going to be decent, go see it. If you think it's not going to suit you, then don't see it.

I've made mistakes using this method, but it generally works.

Hollywood in its self-centered arrogance is making itself irrelevant to the lives of mainstream America. They will continue like mindless lemmings in their suicidal march to financial collapse. Brokeback Mountain has as much value to those who provide the backbone of America's social order as a diamond ring in a sow's nose. Those who toiled to put the movie together could have better spent their time collectively puking their guts out in the toilet.

No no no you miss the point. Who cares how good a picture it was. What matters is that it pushed the already humongous envelope of public gay offensiveness.

A critic I greatly respect, Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal, (hardly a sucker for PC) picked Brokeback Mountain as the best film of the year. Which leads me to believe, remembering other critics of a more conservative bent (like Michael Medved) who did NOT dump on the movie
the way some on this forum have, that there is more to this movie than just a vehicle for the gay political agenda, regardless of what the actors themselves have said about it.

C'mon, the whole thing was predestined. Just like Tom Hanks for winning the Oscar for "Philadelphia". This comes as no shock to regulars on this forum, but there is a tremendous liberal pro-homosexuality clique that runs things in Whollyweird. I guarantee it that if Mel Gibson had made "Passion of the Christ" with some sort of pro-gay theme, his flick would have won Oscars too.
