What Do You Think?


The wonderful people over at NY Magazine had quite the little discover this morning when they went over to the website for The Golden Globes. They found this little addition to the list of nominees. Lucky there is the screenshot invention or we may have never have known in advance who was going to win Best Actress. Now, I'm sure the people over the Globes have an innocent explanation like they were just testing out the website to make sure it would work on Sunday night when the winners were announced. I mean there is nothing but integrity when it comes to their nomination process or who the winners are. Right?

Do they even have one of those independent accounting firms doing the tabulation? Somehow I don't think they do. I think the members of the organization just sit around and wonder who they would like to meet and make sure they win. I mean is a winner really going to say no to an exclusive interview with one of the "journalists" if they win? I think not.

I would actually be willing to buy the whole working on the website theory. I just think they are going to be in one world of hurt though if Anne Hathaway does turn out to be the winner because then everyone will think the whole thing is rigged somehow. It probably isn't, but if she wins there will not be enough things they can say or do to ever change that perception.

If she does win, don't look for Angelina Jolie to ever attend again. Angelina looked seriously ticked off last night when Anne beat her out at the Critic's Choice awards. I mean like ticked off enough that Anne should definitely go to the bathroom with several friends.

So, what do you think? Is the fix in? Are the people over at the Globes wondering if they should change the winner if it is Anne? Did they goof or is it just an innocent little mistake? Does Anne even deserve the award if she does win?

HHmmm...if she does win, I will be mightily suspicious. Anne is really "hot" right now - by god, she's everywhere I look! Seems highly weird to me.

Ror said...

color me clueless...but I thought everyone knew they were rigged.


But Angelina doing a smack down on that cow eyed hack?!?

That would get MY vote!!

Harriet Hellfire said...

I haven't seen the movie so I don't know if she deserves an award for it. And I always suspected these award ceremonies were rigged to some extent. But who knows...

Sylvia said...

I've only heard that Angelina and Anne were good in the movies they came out on. Doubt, I saw it and Meryl Streep was very good in that movie.

I've always felt they were rigged. I always wonder why Fishstick got an Oscar never considered her a good actress. I always thought she was kind of boring in her acting.

juicy said...

Well, IMO if they were rigging it to get the exclusive interview or whatever, don't you think they'd want Angelina?
Not to say these award shows aren't rigged, I'm sure they are one way or another.

KellyLynn said...

I can buy the idea that they were doing some testing, simply for the fact that Anne Hathaway comes first alphabetically, and they picked the first person in the list as test winner. Hey, it could happen...

Elaine said...

Was Best Actress the only category which "indicated" a winner? If it was, then I'm more inclined to believe it was just a test and since Anne's name was first on the list, like KellyLynn said, it was probably an accident.

sham = The Golden Globes and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Remember when Pia Zadora won?

Their 'members' are a joke. Very few are really working journalists.

This is good article in the LA Times.

Do people really take this stuff seriously? Changeling was HIDEOUS, anyway, Angie included, so it would be even funnier if AJ did end up winning for that.

kimmypie1 said...

even if they already know the winner, how does that mean it is fixed? Is it possible that they already have tallied the votes and that they know who the winner is?

Sexecution said...

I thought Jolie did a fabulous job in The Changeling, but seriously Angie threw the best bitch face I have ever seen last night. If I was Anne I would have made a break for the door or certainly never used the ladies. Just in case.

Ms. said...

There's only 82 people 'voting', so I'm sure the votes tallied. Just as I'm sure the entire thing is sham.

jax said...

well after Anne's speech last night...wow. she really put her giant fucking foot in her enormous mouth. several times.

nancer said...

i hate all these awards. these people make all that money, but that's not enough. they have to get all dolled up and pat themselves on the back in front of each other several times a year to boot.
angelina jolie is a beautiful woman but a great actress, she is not. 'changeling' sucked and she sucked in it. that might have been a better movie with someone less glamorous and fewer lingering close-ups. it was really just a showcase for how beautiful she is. i've yet to see her in anything where she wowed me---i don't think it's in her.

tomoe said...

Kate Winslet is the clear choice.

twunty mcslore said...

If it was a mistake and Anne did not actually win, someone from the Golden Globes is on the phone to Angie's people right now to tell her.
The only reason the Globes are any fun is that everybody has a bottle or ten at their table and they're completely shit-faced.

JS said...

They already have a statement on the site:
HOLLYWOOD, CA, January 8, 2009 – In the process of preparing for Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association web team inadvertently marked a nominee as a winner. The mistake was immediately corrected.

Elizabeth said...

haha, the jolie bitch face was fantastic. i didn't watch the awards, but after seeing Enty's reference I had to go find it.

The created persona of AJ is just so distasteful to me. I love it that she hasn't been able to fool all the people all the time.

palealebrew10 said...

Yeah it was really funny-I'm glad I'm not the only one who took notice of how pissed off AJ looked. And Anne's speech rambled on-it got pretty uncomfortable.

Whatever she's still Angelina frickin' Jolie.

Molly said...

i'd be stunned if anne hathaway beat out any of the others. i don't think she'll win. this was a test or a goof or anne's wishful thinking.

Mooshki said...

"The only reason the Globes are any fun is that everybody has a bottle or ten at their table and they're completely shit-faced."

YES!

Mooshki said...

Also, that is why Renee Zellweger should always be nominated for a GG. Girl cannot hold her liquor.

Gams said...

Has to be a mistake. If you'll notice, the names are listed in alphabetical order.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Oh my fucking god. I just went and found the clip of Anne Hathaway's speech, including AJ's bitchface. Holy crap. For an award winning actress, you don't hide your emotions well, Angelina.

Thist just confirms what I already knew, and what I have already said on here multiple times. Angelina Jolie is smug.

Mika said...

I kinda think the opposite.

Angelina's looks as the most beautiful are overrated... she is odd looking, unique BUT ODD looking, but I think she's a fabulous actress and a very interesting non boring person. She needs better meatier roles.

I don't think that was a bitch face. that's just her face.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I actually DID see Rachel Getting Married, and I thought Anne Hathaway was amazing in it. I'm not normally a fan of hers, I went to the movie to see Rosemarie DeWitt (I'm a Mad Men, she was in it first season) and Debra Winger. Having not seen all five performances, I can't render an opinion as to who was best, but Hathaway's performance was certainly award-worthy.

Ms. said...

@ Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors

I'm a fan of Mad Men too and I'm having trouble placing Rosemarie DeWitt. Is she the pregnant neighbour?

not on my dollar said...

I hope that they don't try to cover up the mistake by changing the winner to someone else like, AJ.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Ms. - She was Don Draper's mistress Midge from season one, the bohemian artist who lived in the Village.

Molly said...

and trivia - she's the granddaughter of the real life cinderella man.

Ms. said...

Little smoke
Thanks. She sure can change her look. Wow.

jib said...

Angie jo's little temper tantrum look made me freaking howl. Sore loser anyone? Beaten by princess mia...LOL

Majik said...

I think the bitch-face was in direct response to what Anne was about to say, not because it was Anne, specifically.

Anne was gushing about Meryl Streep, and how high she had "raised the bar"...I think she was ABOUT to say something to the effect of that the bar was pretty low, no offense to the other actresses...but she caught herself and immediately started gushing about how wonderful everyone was, blah blah blah.

I think Angie was just being 100% a real person, pissed off at almost being called a hack. I would have looked the same way...only not quite so pretty. With crappier clothes. Oh, and a good 60 lbs.

NYC2008 said...

I watched the video twice, and she does not look pissed off. Are we watching the same video?

jax said...

well she sure as f*ck don't look happy!

Sis said...

I saw the tape and agree with Majik, Anne just barely caught herself from inserting a huge foot, now we can watch for a huge ego in Anne!!

I have thought there was some rigging when Fishsticks won an Oscar for the Shakespeare movie against Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth which was an awesome movie, imo.

bionic bunny! said...

don't like AJ and am tired of her automatically being nominated for everything!
yes, i know her people put her name in the hat and all of that (heh, i'm dr. suess!), but it still sickens me. i've never seen the attraction.

nikki said...

I saw the critics choice awards last night and was stunned when I saw AJ's scowl while Anne H was accepting her speech. If looks could kill, Anne would have died right on the stage.

I was not planning on seeing Anne's
movie, but now that's she won, I'll definitely check it out.

KKWS said...

UGH, Rachel Getting Married is the worst movie I've ever seen. Anne was only the shining star of the movie because every other element was horrid.
