67th Annual Golden Globes

Congratulations to all the winners last night at the 67th Annual Golden Globes.

No, we don't always have perfect weather in Southern California, but the stars survived the inconvenience. Personally I could have done without Ricky Gervais, I don't think he added to the show. Overall the show was exciting with a lot of surprise winners. My favorite was Mo'Nigue for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for "Precious". She gave a beautiful acceptance speech.

The Last Station - AFI

The Last Station, directed by Michael Hoffman was screened at the AFI film festival last November 2009. The film is about the later years of Leo Tolstoy (Christopher Plummer). You may think the film will be too boring and intellectual, but really it a beautiful love story about Leo Tolstoy and his wife of 48 years Sofya Tolstoy (Helen Mirren). Valentin Bulgakov (James McAvoy), Leo Tolstoy's assistant is caught between Leo and Sofya's constant fighting.


Prior to the screening AFI paid Tribute to Christopher Plummer with a Q&A about his amazing career.
