Winners of the 66th annual Golden Globe awards

** I have to say that I am slightly disappointed. I cannot believe that Benjamin Button didn’t receive ANY Golden Globes. I mean, I’m sure most of you who saw it would agree that it was a very good film. Definitely worthy of at least Best Actor. I mean, Brad Pitt was amazing! If he doesn’t get an Oscar, I will seriously demand a recount or something. Also, I have not yet seen “Slumdog Millionaire,” so I guess my vote would be slanted toward Benjamin Button, but still — not even one? Ugh. If you’ve seen Slumdog, comment and let me know if it is worthy of my time or if Button was really screwed out of an award. I do, however, think Kate Winslet deserved her two awards. I absolutely adore her and am proud that she landed two. I also am disappointed that “The Office” didn’t land any awards. I haven’t been watching lately, but it used to be one of my favorite shows. I am so glad that Anna Paquin (Rogue from X-Men) got an award for “True Blood.” That show, however sexual it might be, was actually kind of interesting. I really hate her fake southern accent, but give me cute vampires lusting after mortals and I will watch that any day (right Twilight fans?) Haha. Well, here is the complete set of winners. What are YOUR thoughts? **
