What a boring broadcast. They may as well have been reading the names of members of a high school honor role at last night's scaled-down version of the Golden Globes. Due to the two-month long Writers Guild of America strike, the Hollywood Foreign Press opted for a news conference instead of the usual big boozy show.
But it didn't stop fans of Ellen Page from watching the broadcast. Fifty of Page's friends showed up at the actress' former school in Halifax to watch the abridged awards show. And Access Hollywood was there to tape the proceedings.
In the end, Page lost the Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical for her role in Juno to Marion Cotillard, who played Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose. La Vie En Rose certainly wasn't a comedy and I don't consider it a musical, but a movie with music. C'est la vie. Let's hope the strike gets settled before the Academy Awards show on Feb. 24, 2008.
