Skip to comments.'Brokeback Mountain' Leads Globes With 4 Awards (No more movies for me)
Posted on 01/17/2006 5:12:11 AM PST by devane617
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. The "gay cowboy movie" "Brokeback Mountain" led the Golden Globes Monday night with four prizes, including best dramatic film and the directing honor for Ang Lee. As expected, it was a triumphant night for films dealing with homosexuality and transsexuality. Along with the victories for "Brokeback Mountain," acting honors went to Felicity Huffman in a gender-bending role as a man preparing for sex-change surgery in "Transamerica" and Philip Seymour Hoffman as gay author Truman Capote in "Capote." "I know as actors our job is usually to shed our skins, but I think as people our job is to become who we really are, and so I would like to salute the men and women who brave ostracism, alienation and a life lived on the margins to become who they really are," Huffman said.

He's talking about Conservative actors in Hollywood? Or men who boink sheep?
Remind me again why Box Office totals are down?????
I see several movies per week, but vow today that my movie viewing days are over. I refuse to give money to Hollywood after last night's mess. We control the money, it is now tome to show them...
Hollywood......the only team that pats itself on the back after a losing season....
Today? It's all about impressing your peers in the little pocket Hell called Hollywood. And they wonder why receipts are going down...down...down.
Why Endora, I would have never suspected it of you.
And suddenly we learn that Hollywood is overpopulated with sexual deviants? This just in....
"Remind me again why Box Office totals are down?????"
Brokedick Mountain, queers and steers / fags on horses.
The Palestinian film "Paradise Now," a dark tale of two Arab friends tapped to carry out a suicide bombing in Israel, won the prize for foreign-language film that glamourises and sympathizes with terrorists.
The awards are meaningless. I don't think Narnia got anything but has out-grossed Broke Back by $230,000,000 and both have been out 6 weeks.
Buy the dollar movies in the seconds bin.
Keep your teenagers from spending money at the boxoffice and you'll be more effective. Much of the Follywood slop is aimed at the youth market, though somehow I can't imagine too many straight eighteen-year-olds wanting to see "Homos on the Range."
Oddly patronizing, the Paradise movie. Would Hollowwood have ever come within a hundred miles of a story regarding a CHRISTIAN Paradise?
"When movies like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe make a killing and the crap like this are a bust, they will begin to correlate the two eventually. Support those who make decent films and boycott those who don't, it will get through to them eventually."
I think you are mistaken. Hollywood would rather push their warped agenda and reflect their corrupt values than make wholesome, family oriented movies. Even if they are profitable. Look at the stink they made about, "The Passion of the Christ".
Look at the success of FoxNews. They are the only cable news channel gaining viewers, yet instead of emulating their right of center viewpoint, all three networks and the other cable news channels continue with the liberal bias.
I agree with you. Look how HW has changed family-tv. Take a look at the crap that is on every night of the week. Think HW does not have an agenda? Even the commercials have pushed over the line.
Hollywoods sweet smell of success, smells more of rump wranglers and their stinky habits.
I will only go to movies that do not offend my sensibilities.
Wanna see a real cowboy movie, try "Open Range" or "Unforgiven"
So, no more watching on cable or renting DVDs either? They get a cut from all of that, of course.
"No. Im not funny when I try to be. Seems I get better results just trying to talk normal. Of course, there were a few times in court I had the judge with his head down and shoulders shaking. Now one that was a bit funny, was my tape statement about asking the pig f****r if he knew if the "Pig In Question" was a male or female. Of course, he got real offended that I might even suggest that he would have sex with a MALE pig. Didn't want anyone to think he was a perverted, homosexual pig porker! Oh heavens No...thought never crossed my mind.
They edit my tape statements now. Hmmmm .."
How could it have gotten the Golden Globes when it doesn't have any globes in it?
And Hollywood? FYI, shepherds/sheep herders are not cowboys.
The awards are meaningless. I don't think Narnia got anything but has out-grossed Broke Back by $230,000,000 and both have been out 6 weeks.>>>
Try HALF A BILLION DOLLARS!
They can stick those Golden Globes where the sun don't shine.
I certainly added to Narnia's total this weekend. :))
The 'decent ones' are the ones that are financing the agenda-driven ones.
Money the public pays to see Narnia helps offset the losses of Brokeback.
Hollywood is WAY out of touch with the rest of us. WHO listens to them and who cares, I wonder what the ratings were this year for this event. Did anyone watch it?
Hollywood = Homo on the Range
HoooooMoooo on the range,
Where the queer and the gerbil both play,
Where often is heard,
A "Fabulous" word,
And the sheepherders eat pudding all day.
Unconfriemd Hollywood report that Mel Brooks' new film is called "Broken Tuchus"
I realize it may be detox to some people, but not going to the movie theater is not a difficult thing. :]
I really see Hollywood for the bad acting and hype they are full of.
Think of the money one can save... Buying movie tickets supports liberal and socialist endeavors.
It is true. :]
They simply use the huge profits from those films that you do see to subsidize the ones that you can't stand.
And thats how it works. - You still pay for them to produce this crap.
HAHA isn't that the truth. These awards are all about praising themselves even if the people who go to the films hate their crap!
Absolutely true. So much more money could flow into Hollywood, if they just made the movies that most people want to see. But they don't. They have a "business model" which is not aimed at money. The Leftists and the Pink Mafia that run the studios care only for their agenda.
Uhh Hollywierd keeps changing everyday. Unfortunately it's for the worse. Brokedick mountain gets awards?
With a thought pattern like that, no wonder the Hollywierd type are against the war and America!
Excellent points, dad. Certainly food for thought, thanks.
There's nothing we ever want to see so why bother. I guess that makes us 'sticks-in-the-mud' but what the heck!
Don't suggest that for goodness sake, they will be doing it next year on the screen and that one will be winning Oscars.
GOLDEN GLOBE WATCH: NO CLASS
GEORGE CLOONEY: I want to thank Jack Abramoff, you know, just because. Im the first one out, lets get this thing rolling. I dont know why. Who would name their kid Jack with the last words off at the end of your last name? No wonder that guy is screwed up. Alright I just got bleeped.
When I first heard talk of the supposed "agenda", I thought it was just silly. I'm now convinced it exists.
How many time do we have to say it? IT'S NOT A COWBOY MOVIE, it's a buttboy movie!!!
More importantly, how many people watched 24 the last two nights?
As of Jan 13-16 weekend Narnia has grossed $263,441,000 and Brokeback Mountain has only grossed $32,088,000. Of course Brokeback has only been released to 683 theaters as compared to 3224 for Narnia. But that breaks down to $81712 per theater for Narnia compared to $46980 for Brokeback. With those numbers I know which one I would be showing in my theater if I owned one.
...and Geena Davis best actress. Give me a break!
Wasn't it John Kerry who said in the run up to the election that Hollywood reflected the values of America?? Someone help me with the quote...
My wife watched it while I watched Jack Bauer take on the bad guys.
Today, instead, it's a different story. I'd still feel the same if they'd 1) Keep their mouths shut; 2) Keep their immoralities to themselves; 3)Provided a product worth seeing. They don't follow any of these ethical or rational business practices, however, and the wife and I have been a 'no show' at theaters since 1990.
Oops, gotta run - need to crank up the DVD recorder and see what's on the Westerns Channel and TCM!
