Golden Globes 2010 (Rhoades)

Golden Globes and the Tropic Cinema’s Lineup
By Shirrel Rhoades

Last week’s Golden Globes offered few surprises for this reviewer, other that Paul Giamatti’s win for “Barney’s Version” (which hasn’t made it to Key West yet).
However, the big news for Key West was that “The Kids Are All Right” racked up two major awards: Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical and a Best Actress win for Annette Bening. One of the executive producers of “The Kids Are All Right” is none other than our own Anne O’Shae, head of Minerva Productions as well as the reigning Fantasy Fest Queen. Congrats!
It was a good night for the Tropic Cinema too. Four of the winning films are currently showing at the Tropic – and are being held over to allow local moviegoers to catch any they’ve not yet seen. That’s why no new films are coming to its screens this week.
Here are the films and performances you can still see at the Tropic:
Colin Firth won as Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his turn as England’s stuttering George VI in “The King’s Speech.”
Natalie Portman was a shoo-in as Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama for her role as a haunted ballerina in “Black Swan.”
Christian Bale and Melissa Leo were awarded Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a Motion Picture for their high-pitched performances in “The Fighter.”
And “Burlesque” scored the Best Original Song for Cher’s prophetic rendition of “You Haven’t Heard the Last of Me.”
May as well see them now to prepare yourself for February’s Academy Awards, sure to be a gala affair at the Tropic Cinema this year.
