This is what we live for here at The Gold Rush. On New Year's Eve, the TV Guide channel will be airing a 15-hour marathon of all the awards shows from 2006. It's Joan and Melissa Rivers' "Red Carpet Rewind Marathon," starting at 10 a.m. Sunday. What better way to get revved up for the upcoming season than to relive the shock and awe of "Crash"?!
Golden Globes: December 2006 Archives
The New York Daily News reports that the Oscars and Golden Globes are scrapping their swag-stuffed celebrity gift baskets! Each year, we media folk love to run the annual "what absurdly expensive stuff is in the gift baskets" story. We'll have to do without in ’07. Two reasons cited: (1) The IRS was sniffing around, and (2) actor Ed Norton complained about the needless extravagence. Yeah, but ...
The Oscars are almost as much about momentum as the films themselves. Here’s a list of what honors the top movies are winning so far this awards season:

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Golden Globes were truly global Thursday, with the international drama ‘‘Babel’’ leading contenders with seven nominations and such foreign-themed films as ‘‘Letters From Iwo Jima,’’ ‘‘Apocalypto’’ and ‘‘Borat’’ among key nominees.
‘‘Babel,’’ a tale of families on three continents linked by tragic events in the North African desert, was nominated for best dramatic film, along with the Robert Kennedy ensemble tale ‘‘Bobby,’’ the cops-and-mobsters thriller ‘‘The Departed,’’ the suburban comic drama ‘‘Little Children’’ and the British royalty saga ‘‘The Queen.’’
Here are some reactions from a few of those nominated this morning for the upcoming 64th annual Golden Globe Awards:

And the clock just keeps ticking. With nominations for the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s 64th annual Golden Globe Awards just days away — announcements are set for the early morning hours of Dec. 14 — a clear front-runner has yet to emerge for one of the ceremony’s top two prizes, namely the best drama of the year. Unlike the musical/comedy race, which will surely fete Paramount/DreamWorks’ big-screen adaptation of the award-winning Broadway production ‘‘Dreamgirls,’’ the dramatic categories remain decidely murky, and almost no one is willing to go on record supporting any particular movie as a lock for a best picture trophy. That said, a handful of films — specifically Miramax’s ‘‘The Queen,’’ Paramount/DreamWorks’ ‘‘Flags of Our Fathers’’ and Warner Bros. Pictures’ ‘‘The Departed’’ — finally seem to be emerging as likely favorites for a nomination.
