What’s Up!? The Golden Globes: Je suis Charlie!!

Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 6.53.47 PMWell, the award season launches with the Golden Globes! What do we love most: The speeches, the clothes, who walks with who or the movies? Here at itsashort.com we love the Golden Globes because as George Clooney says, its about ‘the little guy’ movies, not the block busters. The independents, they need the push, and the industry, delightfully, pushes for independence and point of view and talent, creativity, all the things that make making and watching movies the amazing experience we know it to be. So, thank you, Golden Globes! Below is the montage of best moments from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the George Clooney speech and Common and John Legend! Honorable mention goes to the very touching tribute Michael Keaton pays to his son. What were your favorite moments?

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

We so appreciate their very unique brand of ‘keepin it real’ humor!!

George Clooney: Je suis Charlie!

George Clooney offers a very moving tribute to his colleagues, Amal and all of the people world wide protesting the hideous events in Paris: Je suis Charlie!

Common and John Legend for their wonderful and timely music titled: Glory

Common and John Legend were introduced by Prince!!!! Common offered a very moving tribute, the movie Selma, to the US fight against terrorism, racism and any other ism that divides our citizens.

OMG the Globes ‘killed it’ this year!!

What’s Up: WTF The Golden Globe Awards for Short Film, Video or Webisodes? Not!

Here’s what we know: Amy Adams won¬†Imagefor best actress, finally! Well, she was amazing! Leo DiCaprio won for the Wolf and I love the idea of HER winning best script. For the entire list, check out Variety.com. 12 years a Slave was just named best motion picture! Shouldn’t there be something for ScarJo as the voice of the OS in the movie HER, does anyone else agree? And, isn’t that the whole point of HER, that there is a 4th dimension that is very much a part of our everyday lives?

With the exception of the Brooklyn Nine Nine, the nominations and wins, meaning, everything else was fairly predictable. Not a criticism, but an acknowledgement of the incredible talent we have truly gown to love, admire and respect. The choices are tough because the artists are all amazing. New talent, who was the Octavia Spencer this year, doesn’t seem like there were any unexpectedly new faces outside of the cast of 12 Years a Slave? So, ‘shout outs’ to everyone who was nominated and the winners!

The question is: what about short film, short video and webisodes?! Definitely not part of the Golden globes or the People’s Choice Awards, but Academy Award recognition. So, artists and fans, we have work to do! itsashort.com¬†proposes awards for short film, short video and webisodes series: Shorties? Kinda catchy? There have got to be better suggestions, leave suggestions in the comment section below and for the next 30 days, this post will appear regularly to engage a discussion for the ‘shorts’ awards.

Also, who gave the best Acceptance Speech? We know whose speech didn’t make the short or long list..no need to go there! And, please share your favorite Amy/Tina moment!

Best Amy/Tina
