You're not as bummed out as Ernest Borgnine

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

A lot of actors are disappointed Sunday's Golden Globes telecast has been reduced to a press conference, but few are more bummed out than 90-year-old Ernest Borgnine.

Borgnine is nominated in the best film.miniseries actor category for "A Grandpa For Christmas." It's an honor he never thought he'd be alive to enjoy.

"It's 52 years since my Oscar for 'Marty,' and it sure brought the people out of the woodwork," he told the New York Post. "At 90, I'm suddenly the fair-haired boy again. I keep the Oscar in our back room. I just polished it up a bit. One dealer wanted to buy it. He said it would probably bring more than John Wayne's saddle."
