Golden Globes Movie Giveaway

Confession time! One of my absolute biggest guilty-pleasures is award show season. I’m a sucker for the red-carpet arrivals… and I almost always manage to stay up until the last award is given, even if I haven’t seen any of the movies that are up for that, usually biggest award of the evening. I don’t exactly know why, I can DVR it, I can see the winner’s list online as soon as I wake up in the morning, but for some reason, it’s just a traditional guilty-pleasure I can’t let go of… even though I have way more important things to do in my life, like sleep so I have enough energy to deal with a 6 & 2 year old hours later. It’s not like I need this information to hit up the water-cooler at “work” in the morning. My 6 & 2 year old “bosses” barely know who Johnny Depp & Angelina Jolie are. I do say barely, because my 6 year old does enjoy Captain Jack Sparrow. Loving Johnny Depp is indeed ageless.

One of my favorite award-shows is the Golden Globe Awards. It’s kind of silly when I start to think about it. Who are the Hollywood Foreign Press anyhow?! And how do they pick the winners that I usually end up scoffing at?! Yes, I usually root for the underdog, and I’m biased toward my favorites, even if I haven’t seen any of the other nominees’ work. Sue me.

One of the fun aspects about the Golden Globes is that it’s very laid-back. Every table has a few bottles of champagne and you can just tell that some celebs get a little more trashed at the open bar than others… but the speeches do tend to get more livelier as the night goes on!! And guess what? I’m right there with them, usually starting with champagne and ending with a beer, making my own slurred acceptance speech. 
Celebration Cinema

Something I find challenging is getting a chance to see a few of the nominated films before the Oscars are handed out. Well, I have a very special treat for you… I am giving away a $40 GIFT CARD to Celebration! Cinema! That’s right, friends! My fantastic, local-chain of movie theaters here in Grand Rapids (with IMAX & other locations throughout Michigan) have hooked me up to do TWO big giveaways, and this is the first one… the next one? Well, you’ll have to wait and see. Let’s just say the Golden Globes are usually seen as the warm-up to the Oscars. My Celebration! Cinema giveaway will work the same way… so you may want to follow, subscribe via email or RSS feed to stay in the loop! 

Check out the list of nominees here. Comment below with your favorite category (i.e. Best Motion Picture, Drama, Best Motion Picture Actress in a Comedy or Musical, etc) and who you think (or hope!) will win, and include your email address with your entry. Every comment is an entry! Limit one entry per email address. I will also grant you ONE bonus entry if you follow me on twitter. But, you need to post 2 separate comments to gain 2 entries.

    Oops, I definitely didn’t mean to delete that comment.

    Well first lets choose best picture. I will have to go with what I hope wins and that would be the #1 film on my top 10 list ( The Kings Speech

    I didn’t see “Black Swan” yet because I thought it would be the kind of film I walk out of and wonder what just happened but my sister saw it and said it was spectacular. I wouldn’t be disappointed if Natalie Portman won as she is a great actress. Really get tired of people winning awards for roles they play all the time or that aren’t out of there comfort zones!

    Christian Bale absolutely must win best supporting actor. Way to show off your acting chops again!

  7. Posted January 12, 2011 at 8:13 pm | Permalink

    best movie should go to “Kings Speech”. I know some one who works everyday on controlling his stuttering and this movie highlights the struggles and eventual triumph over stuttering. Great movie!

    Blue Valentine should have been up for Best Picture or at least Ryan Gosling or Michelle Williams for best actor & actress.

    Well being a mother of two boys I definitely dont get to the movies enough to see most of these movies. So I will comment on the category I know something about BEST ANIMATED.
    Now if my kids had choice there pick would be Toy Story 3. Which was great! Im glad they made it my kids watch it constantly!!And it even made me cry 🙁 But my pick for the best animated would have to be How To Train Your Dragon!! FOR WIN!!! It looked great,was funny, appield to those young and old, male and female!!! Great cast! and they are looking to do another!! I saw it 5 times in theaters and always found something new that I liked about it!!
