Golden Globes 2019: A Golden Rhapsody

Sunday night was the Golden Globes, and I was a surprise of the winners.  Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, best-animated film; Roma for best foreign film, Regina King for If Streets Could Talk; Mahershala Ali for Green Book;  Christian Bale for Vice; Glenn Close The Wife (2017), while Bohemian Rhapsody won for best film and Rami Malek for best actor.

It was an incredible night for all the winners. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh were incredibly funny, they remind me of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, hosting the Golden Globes. Bob Hope did the same thing poking fun at the celebrities in a good way. These actors and writers study the greats of how to write comedy, and they were funny.

Carol Burnett

Speaking of comedy writing, we have to praise Carol Burnett, a legendary and pioneer of sketch comedy. She had the best comedy writing team and the ensemble of actors and singers to perform on her show in the 1970s. The show won multiple awards — Golden Globes and Emmys.

So they gave Carol Burnett a Lifetime Achievement Award in Television, the Carol Burnett Award. She deserved it.

Plus, the ratings for the show was up from last year.  Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh should host the Oscars in 2019.

Taylor Swift will be in Cats on Broadway this summer of 2019

Even though Lady Gaga did not win for a Golden Globe for Best actress, but she got an award for best song presented by my girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

Breaking Dawn part 1: Bite the Bride

Breaking Dawn will become the biggest blockbuster movie since Titanic. It’s an epic love story between a Vampire and Werewolf, Edward and Jacob, who will get Bella Swan. In other words, who will keep her warm? Well, Vampires are dead and cold, while the werewolf is always warm. She can’t decide?

Bella and Edward, plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage, honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black.

With only four books in Stephenie Meyer’s chart-busting series (as opposed to the seven Harry Potters), the people behind the “Twilight” movies can be forgiven for stretching out the screen experience for as long as possible. The movie is two hours long and is much better than, two hours and 30 minutes. Is there an intermission I must pee?! The movie is approximately two hours.

(“Breaking Dawn” 2 hits next November.) And, after all, so much does happen in this movie, which takes the arc of human experience — birth and death and everything in between — and works it up into a rich, sudsy lather. In the past, Bella (played with increasing confidence by Kristen Stewart) has been almost eclipsed by Edward (Robert Pattinson),  his bloodsucking brood and their battles. Here, though, she returns as the emotional and psychological cornerstone in a series in which the center of gravity has shifted from frenzied action and reaction to love.

When part two comes out next November 2012 can vampire’s age? Something may be different. If you read Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga books, it’s like a mini-series franchise movie, maybe in the future deluxe DVD’s set of the movie. Don’t buy it now, just wait until it comes out in a set, buying it individual may be good, it’s up to you.

Did you know they had to re-edit some scenes? It was the love making scenes? It got pretty hot and someone dropped the boom mike on Kristen Steward’s head. Sorry. I got excited.

And I couldn’t find the Ellen DeGeneres in the movie. I know, it was a parody she spoofed on the show. However, there was a bathroom scene with Bella and Edward in it.

Be sure stay after the movie when the credit rolled, there’s a surprised at the end.

Overall it was a must go movie of the week. It was fantastic to watch. The visual and the cinematography of the movie are splendid to watch.
