TINSEL & TINE

Tinsel & Tine (Reel & Dine) is about discovering what I find pleasing in Film & Food -  My post/commentary are from the perspective of someone who truly reveres good storytelling, and possesses a voracious appetite.

Although I also write about my dining experiences and food events, the blog is primarily film-centric. My writing style weaves together personal anecdotes and observations in conjunction with film reviews, reporting from film festivals and preview film screenings. Not to mention, whenever possible, highlighting the simpatico of food in film!

Tinsel & Tine encourages blog contributors. Please send
your film festival experiences - from big and small film festivals - pictures, short reviews, long reviews, food & film tie-ins, report on the celebrities, the atmosphere etc... Feel free to share your festival coverage during or after the festival.  (Blogging credit only compensation).

69th Golden Globes Tinsel & Tine Commentary

Winners
Best Performance Actress – Drama: Meryl Streep – Iron Lady.
I'm looking forward to seeing this film. (very disappointed The Film Society didn't offer a preview screening).
I'm certain as always, Streep's performance will be award worthy;
however, since this film hasn't even hit theaters yet, how about giving
the Globe to Viola Davis and letting Meryl win the Oscar.

Best Performance Actor – Drama: George Clooney - The Descendants

Clooney coming out on stage with Brad Pitt's cane was a funny bit. And the highlight of my night was when he commended Michael Fassbender on being able to play golf with his hands behind his back. (If you'll recall, my commentary on Shame starts out with a similar reference).  All great, except his performance in The Descendants does not deserve a Golden Globe.
And yes, that also means I didn't agree with The Descendants winning Best Motion Picture Drama.  This film's got good bones, and I'm a fan of writer/director Alexander Payne; but the movie is not as involving as Moneyball or The Help. And although I've yet to see it, I imagine it's not as smart as The Ides Of March

At first I was disappointed with The Artist winning Best Motion Picture - Musical/Comedy, then in thinking over its competition: 50/50, Bridesmaids, Midnight in Paris and My Week with Marilyn, all films I enjoyed about equally. 50/50 perhaps a step below the others, but basically, this category was up for grabs.

On a side note: there was an audible gasp from the audience when the producer of The Artist, Ludovic Bource called his Golden Globe an Oscar - talk about a faux pas!
