Golden Globes - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet.... — LiveJournal
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Golden Globes
Man, the Brits are seriously pwning between Irons, Laurie, Nighy and Mirren tonight. And they've all given the best acceptance speeches too. Jeremy Irons was so sexy (and I hate using that word, but he really was).

Only problem? Peter O'Toole did not win for Venus (if it gets a release here, I'm rushing out to see it). Though I'm hoping that there'll be an Oscar nod/win. He didn't want to accept that lifetime achievement award a few years ago because he thought himself capable of still giving an award-winning performance- and it would bloody well prove that he was right!

Current Mood: geeky geeky

I didn't find out who had won until this morning and was so pleased to see how well the Brits had done. I've not seen Venus but it's been marketed heavily so will no doubt see it. Peter O'Toole is an amazing actor - after watching him in Casanova I went back to some of his older movies which I loved.

If/when you see Venus, you must post a review. :) I was watching O'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia recently...I think it's still one of the most amazing performances I've seen on film (and if Gregory Peck hadn't been nominated alongside him that year for playing Atticus Finch so brilliantly, I think he would've got the Oscar for it too). Completely and utterly mesmerizing, O'Toole is.

It's because America has not produced any real talent in a long time (excepting Jonny Depp, who doesn't really count). I've noticed this trend months ago. Celebrity seems to be based more on scandal and exposure. The Hollywood and Television is hiring based more on looks and popularity, not skill. No one is trained actors anymore it seems.

It's not wonder all my fave TV series are British. And I haven't been to a cinema since The Prestige...
