Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth (The Dark Knight Rises Update)

Bats, the Third. aka The Dark Knight Rises.

Deep breaths, me, DEEP BREATHS. 
Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Repeat process. 
Okay, now I'm sitting down. 


Why so upset? 

The Princess and that guy from Inception.
Well, as some of you may have heard (and you probably have because the Interwebz are all abuzz with the latest movie nugget.), Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy will be playing Bane and Catwoman. Let me switch that... Catwoman and Bane; although, it doesn't really matter to me because either way two talented actors are getting two ridiculously pathetic characters to play.

Okay, more deep breaths needed. 


Well. . .
As fellow blogger, Ben, posted on my Mark "Not a Douche, but Maybe a Little Bit Douchey" Zuckerberg created Facebook wall, linking me to the news, he said, "This is just silly."  


Why, you ask? Well, friends, keep reading.

That One Award Show Before the Oscars, also known as The Golden Globes

Yep. Still irrelevant.
The votes have been tallied and the results are in!
And the big winner at the 68th Golden Globe Awards was...
Drumroll, please. . .
Well, unsurprisingly, The Social Network

Next stop, world domination.
Even though David Fincher’s film did not receive the most nominations (that accolade goes to Tom Hooper’s movie, The King’s Speech), The Social Network came away with the largest quantity of little globed, golden trophies (four to be exact).
It took the Best Director (Fincher), Best Original Score (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross), Best Screenplay (Andy Sorkin), and the biggest prize, Best Picture. While Golden Globes are fun to amass, the real questions asked after this award show have to be: What does this do for a film’s chances at the Oscars?
