Sweet, Sweet Redemption For Mickey Rourke

PhotobucketWhat a crazy photo. You’ve got Mickey Rourke and The Boss, longtime buddies, holding up their freshly won Golden Globe awards. Can you imagine how surreal last night must have been for Rourke?

Here are some thoughts about the easily predictable awards from last night:

  • I have seen Sean Penn in “Milk”, Brad Pitt in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, and I feel that Rourke’s performance in “The Wrestler” was the best of those three. I’m on record saying that not only is Rourke the best of 2008, he gave one of the best performances in movie history.
  • So Sean Penn skips the entire show because “Milk” wasn’t nominated for Best Picture? Too bad that great talent doesn’t come complete with great class. Sean…grow up dude. If everyone did what you did, there wouldn’t be a show would there?
  • It’s great to see Kate Winslet finally winning some awards. It will still never make up for the highway robbery of her losing for “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”.
  • While I was pulling for James Franco, the Best Actor in a Comedy win for Colin Ferrell for “In Bruges” is well deserved. I continually forget about that underrated dark comedy.
  • Again…how does “30 Rock” continually win this stuff? I’ve seen it and I just don’t see how it is funnier than “The Office”.
  • Poor David Fincher. He finally is recognized for how great of a director he truly is…and gets trumped by Danny Boyle’s coming out party.  One day Fincher…
  • I’m glad to see that Jeremy Piven has completely recovered.
