Golden Globes Celebrate Bad Movies
This year's Golden Globes have turned out just a little bit like the Razzie awards.

Of the seven movies that went away with awards, only one of them, Capote, earned more than a 2-1/2 star rating from me. I know it was a weak year, but there were at least some good movies, for Pete's sake!

Here are a list of winners, followed by my personal star ratings. For TV winners or other details, check out the official Golden Globes website.

Best Dramatic Picture: Brokeback Mountain **

Actually, I loved Brokeback Mountain and I feel that it deserved the award. I think (in my opinion) its the best film of the year. I do agree, however, that The Constant Gardner was a really bad movie that did NOT deserve any of the praise it got. I should of listened to you Jeff about The Constant Gardner.
