World Premiere

Hello and welcome to my blog! I'm Lani, born and raised in Columbus, OH who has resided in beautiful San Francisco for the last 22 years (now nearly half my life). My current employer is the 4th retail company I've been with now for the past 4 years. I really enjoy what I do, but outside of work, I love seeing and discussing movies. Especially independent films. My other passion is food, and that will be discussed ad nauseum in future postings.

While most of you were probably watching Kiefer Sutherland kick butt on"24" Monday night,  I watched the Golden Globe awards. It isn't as formal as the Academy Awards and there are too many categories. But to me, the informality is what makes this fun to watch.

It was great to see Philip Seymour Hoffman win as Best Actor, Drama, for "Capote". It made me forget that he ever did supporting roles in films such as "Twister", "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia". The screenplay was written by Dan Futterman, an actor formerly of CBS's "Judging Amy" and an obscure film called "Urbania". Mr. Futterman also made a guest appearance on "Sex and the City" as Charlotte York's potential boyfriend, Stephan (gay or straight?)

The other fascinating connection unknown to most adults watching was the awards for Best Actor and Actress, TV drama. Hugh Laurie, who won for Best Actor in Fox's "House" starred in the "Stuart Little" films with Geena Davis, who won Best Actress in ABC's "Commander-in-Chief".

All of this can also be found at imdb.com
It is the resource I refer to constantly, and often settles arguments on who was in what film or TV show.
