Golden Globes Miss the Point

I just tuned into the Golden Globe Awards to catch Alec Baldwin win an award - good on him. I've thought he was funny, albeit smarmy, ever since he hit on my friend and I as he exited the Sutton Place In Toronto.

Next up, Best Comedy Series. The list of nominess was incredible. How can you pick a winner between Entourage, Weeds, The Office, Desperate Housewives and, oh wait they did... it's Ugly Betty. Is that a joke? Did they miss the point? Ugly Betty is a ridiculous little show which plays up ridiculously overdone stereotypes...the rest all have characters who, each alone, have more depth and comedic talent than Ugly Betty's whole cast. I thought CityTV had made a huge mistake buying the show when I'd first seen ads for it. When I watched the show I was completely bored. Next thing you know The Devil Wears Prada will win and award for something too.

Film Fest Call for Entries

The Canadian Filmmakers Festival has this hot little commercial to entice filmmakers to submit their short or long format films. It's cheap - ten to twenty bucks gets you in the door - and seems like it might be a little twisted - in a funny, sexy way. The festival runs March 22 - 25.
