-I didn't think the New Yorkers would go for The Dark Knight, since a number of its negative reviews came from there.
-Good to see more support thrown Happy-Go-Lucky's way. It's a fine film, and this should improve its Oscar chances.
-Still no love for Revolutionary Road. If it doesn't score with the Globes tomorrow, I think it's safe to say it's out.
