    What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house.

    The Examiner ^ | 01/15/2014
    The presence of e-cigarettes and "vaping" have led to multiple conversations on whether they're really safer than the real thing, and a group of U.S. senators are none too pleased with the use of one in a skit during Sunday's Golden Globes. One of the gags during the broadcast involved co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler talking about Julia Louis-Dreyfus being nominated for her roles in both the film Enough Said and the TV show Veep. After mentioning her decision to sit in the film section of the room, the camera cut away to Louis-Dreyfus, who snobbishly puffed on an...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Following a primetime broadcast of the Golden Globes that featured prominent images of celebrities smoking e-cigarettes, U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Edward J. Markey (D-MA) today asked NBC Universal and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to take action to ensure that future broadcasts avoid the glamorization of smoking and protect the health of young fans. Electronic cigarettes – or “e-cigs” – have more than doubled in use among high school students in just one year from 2011 to 2012. A report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...

    "12 Years a Slave" went into the 71st Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night with seven nominations but was passed over again and again. That is, until the last award of the evening, and arguably the best of them all. The harrowing portrayal of slavery in America took home the prize for best drama of 2013. But the evening's biggest victor was David O. Russell's Abscam-inspired comedy, "American Hustle." It won three trophies during the three-hour ceremony that aired on NBC from the Beverly Hilton, including for best musical or comedy, best actress for Amy Adams and best supporting actress...

    Mia Farrow and Ronan Farrow didn't hold back their disdain for Woody Allen on Twitter Sunday evening. The mother and son tweeted out against the tribute to the director at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. "Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS," Mia tweeted when Allen's tribute began to start. Diane Keaton accepted the Cecil. B. DeMille Award on behalf of the Hollywood heavyweight—extolling the director's work with actresses, dropping a few curse words and even singing during her monologue. But Ronan's tweet made it clear that he wouldn't be offering any tributes at his house....

    "Argo" was the best drama winner at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, beating out the Civil War epic "Lincoln," which had emerged as an awards-season favorite. The Iran hostage thriller also claimed the directing prize for Ben Affleck, a prize that normally bodes well for an Academy Award win -- except he missed out on an Oscar nomination this time. Affleck is now in an unusual position during Hollywood's long awards season, taking home the top filmmaking trophy at the second-highest film honors knowing he does not have a shot at an Oscar. 48 PHOTOS Golden Globes 2013 show highlights And...

    "I warned them." Returning Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais did indeed let it be known that he wasn't going to hold back in skewering Hollywood's most famous celebrities. And, in what will undoubtedly be his last hosting gig for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (and, who knows, maybe any Stateside awards) he didn't disappoint. But in the process of making searingly funny jokes at more than just the obvious targets (Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, the HFPA itself), the heat he put into the punch lines might have made him more of the story than the actual winners. And yet, it...

    Mel Gibson says he has been made stronger by the "public humiliation" of his drink-drive arrest in 2006. Gibson's arrest sparked outrage after a leaked police report quoted him making anti-Semitic comments to the arresting officer in California, who was Jewish. "You ask anybody what their number one fear is and it's public humiliation," he told the UK's Mirror newspaper. "Multiply that on a global scale and that's what I've been through. It changes you," he added. But the Lethal Weapon star was philosophical about his troubles, saying: "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. It's really that simple." "You...

    After receiving multiple complaints about NBC's Sunday telecast of the Golden Globes, the FCC said Wednesday that it is reviewing the program for possible violations of indecency rules. Toward the end of the program, director Darren Aronofsky was caught on camera jokingly making an obscene gesture -- "flipping the bird," as it's commonly called -- at actor Mickey Rourke, who was onstage accepting an acting award for Aronofsky's film "The Wrestler." Rourke and other attendees also salted their speeches with occasional off-color language, some of which was bleeped by NBC censors. Now the FCC, which regulates decency issues on the...

    PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- Actor George Clooney's off-color joke at the Golden Globes about Jack Abramoff's name reduced the disgraced lobbyist's 12-year-old daughter to tears. That's according to Abramoff's father, Frank Abramoff, who scolded the actor in an open letter on Palm Spring's Desert Sun newspaper Web site. Clooney won a Best Supporting Actor Globe for "Syriana," a multilayered political thriller about corruption in the global oil industry. During his speech, he poked fun at Abramoff's first name, and part of his last name -- which drew laughter from the crowd. The lobbyist's father wrote on the Desert Sun's site...

    Gayety at the Golden Globes James Hirsen, NewsMax.com Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2006 In contrast with the Academy Awards, where approximately 6,000 voters pick the winners, about 80 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association determine the outcome of the Golden Globes. The Globes are thought to be fairly reliable predictors of the Oscars. We'll have to wait until March 5 to see if the pattern holds true. The 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards show proved to be a politically charged affair. The first award set the tone for the evening. It went to George Clooney for Best Supporting Actor in...

     The Golden Globe Awards, Hollywood’s latest orgy of self-congratulation, demonstrated how utterly out of touch with mainstream America Hollywood has become. Far from the days when Hollywood celebrated traditional values, moral fiber and American heroes, modern films celebrate deviancy, moral relativism, and America’s enemies.  This year’s nominees and winners for the Golden Globes were a case in point.Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives fame took on yet another brush with degeneracy by playing the part of a man about to undergo a sex change in the not-so-subtly titled, Transamerica.  It seems all an actor has to do these days is to gain...

    CHRISTIAN groups led a furious campaign against Hollywood yesterday, accusing the Golden Globe Awards of promoting films with gay or “leftist” themes to serve a political agenda. The criticism was made after Brokeback Mountain, a film about the forbidden love between gay Wyoming cowboys, won four awards. Other winners included Philip Seymour Hoffman, named Best Actor for his portrayal of the homosexual writer Truman Capote; and Felicity Huffman, the Desperate Housewives actress who played a transsexual with a gay prostitute son in Transamerica. “Once again, the media elites are proving that their pet projects are more important than profit,” Janice...

    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!"

    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...

    Brokeback Mountain Claims Big Four At The Golden Globes Critically-acclaimed western Brokeback Mountain cleaned up at the Golden Globe Awards last night by claiming four top honors. The controversial film, which has been banned from some cinemas for its gay themes, took home Best Movie (Drama), Best Screenplay and Best Song prizes at the 63rd annual Golden Globe Awards, while Ang Lee picked up the night's Best Director honor from his hero Clint Eastwood. And there were triple celebrations for Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line when Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix claimed the acting honors in the Comedy/Musical movie...

    The Golden Globes saw fit to honor "Paradise Now" last night as "Best Foreign Language Film." Among the night's other honorees were "Brokeback Mountain" and "TransAmerica", both with gay related themes. I have a question: What do you think the protagonists in "Paradise Now" (a couple of Muslim suicide bombers) would have thought of "Brokeback Mountain" and "TransAmerica?" How do you think they would have felt about showing these films to Palestinian children? What do you think they would have done if a theater in their neighborhood dared show these films? Does Hollywood really think that by making films that...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Brokeback Mountain," once ridiculed as "the gay cowboy movie" but now the front-runner in Hollywood's Oscar race, gets its first major awards show test on Monday night -- in prime time with millions watching. The gay romance goes into the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Monday with the most nominations -- seven -- of any film and with a favorite status that many in the industry think could be unshakable in the buildup to the March 5 Oscars. The Golden Globe Awards are an only-in-Hollywood tradition. They are given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,...

    Dr. Ted Baehr, founder of the Christian Film & Television Commission™, one of the top advocacy groups in Hollywood, predicts that Americans moviegoers will reject the top movie choices for the 63rd annual Golden Globes Awards. "They've already rejected three of the five choices for Best Drama," Dr. Baehr said about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's choices, which include BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN; THE CONSTANT GARDENER; GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK; A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE; and MATCH POINT. "These movies aren't that good," said Dr. Baehr, who noted that the Commission's flagship, MOVIEGUIDE®, at its Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala, has...

    In one of the most deadly phenomena of our time – or any time – Hollywood has produced a film called "Brokeback Mountain," which glorifies and glamorizes that male sodomy which remains the cause of so many thousands of deaths by AIDS – and now by syphilis. The Washington Post's Style section reports (with more than apparent approval) that this latest sodomy-acceptance propaganda has lead the year's films with seven Golden Globe nominations. And in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco (those three leading AIDS-distribution points) this new movie "opened in five sold-out theaters." But the Post also reports:...
