Golden Globes Wrap-up

This was definitely a tough Golden Globes to predict, though for the record I got 6 out of 14 of my predictions, which was better than last year.

This year my wrap-up will be a little different.  Last night, I made various Twitter comments during the ceremony, so I thought it would be best to just post all those right here (following the jump).

For the record, I agree that Avatar is a very good film, though not necessarily the best film. #goldenglobes
