HOORAY FOR JULIE CHRISTIE: Because of the ongoing Writer's Guild strike, The Golden Globes were an hour-long "news conference" this evening on NBC. It was fabulous. Every award show should adopt this format even after the strike ends. No acceptance speeches, no plotzing by undeserving starlets, no three-hour snooze fest. The best news: Julie Christie won best actress for her brilliant turn as a woman suffering from Alzheimer's in Away From Her. One of the best movies of the year. It's on DVD now, so rent it and get a couple of boxes of hankies. I was also thrilled that Cate Blanchett won for her portrayal of Bob Dylan in I'm Not There and that Atonement won best picture. Well deserved wins all around.
