I don’t know what I was most excited to see during the 2013 Golden Globes – Ben Affleck or the cast of Les Mis conquering the movie categories.
Argo sweeped the Golden stage with:
1. Best Drama: Out of the nominations for this category, I actually thought ‘Life of Pi’ was going to win. But I don’t mind, ‘Argo’ deserved this award, or should I say Affleck deserved it.
Les Miserables took home the gold with the other half of the movie awards:
1. Best musical/ comedy: We all watched it, and loved it. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house by the end of this 3 hour opera-turned movie. A bit long, but there was no doubt that they didn’t deserve being the “best musical/ comedy” of the year! Great job, cast and crew!
2. Best Actor in a musical or comedy: We followed him from the very beginning of the movie during his darkest days to the end when he felt love, trust, and happiness. Hugh Jackman made us feel like we were a part of his life, even if we were only watching it from our seats in 2d.
3. Best Supporting Actress: Though Anne Hathaway did a superb job in ‘Les Miserables’ and sacrificed a lot for this role (like cutting her beautiful locks of hair), I didn’t think of her as the best supporting actress.
She was only in this movie for what seemed like 5 minutes. (Spoiler Alert!) She died in the beginning of this show! There wasn’t much “supporting” she could’ve done. Why not give it to Amanda Seyfried who played Cosette, or Russell Crowe who played Javert, or even that British cutie Eddie Redmayne as Marius. I wouldn’t even mind handing this award to Sasha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter for being their wonderfully hilarious self. No one can deny that they totes stole the show with their devious quirks.
Were you as excited as me to see Affleck and ‘Les Mis’ take home half of the Golden Globes?
