  1. As well as he and is movies are known, I only own 2 of his movies on DVD (Jaws & Minority Report).

    Speilberg is well deserved of the award, even though I prefer Scorsese as a director.

    The positive thing about Speilberg is that he has tackled various genres. This is where Scorceses trails in his resume.

  2. i cant get over the fact of how amazing he is
    all the directors that gave scorseses his first oscar are amazing
    its incredible

  3. As much as I love Spielberg, I think Scorsese’s the greatest director of our generation. However you can’t disagree that Spielberg desevers some reconztion. Movies like Jaws, Schindler’s List, Saving Pravite Ryan and E.T are movies that are looked at as classics. Overall, Im glad to see Spielberg be the first director to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, but would have been much happier to see the award get handed over to Scoreses.

  4. Scorsese is easily a better director than Spielberg. Spielberg has more commercial appeal, yeah, but he’s made some bombs, whereas Scorsese is yet to mess up in my book (you could argue against New York, New York, but that’s it). Nonetheless Spielberg does deserve the award, I’ll give you that.

  5. Spielberg had a big influence on me as a kid, before I had the balls to see Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick’s film (okay, 2001 was surreal as a kid).

    Anyways, glad to see him get the award. I’ll bet Spielberg is ready to punch out some bitch that tries to steal that award. Poor guy hasn’t been in a good mood with thieves and spoilers. Facts of live: Piss off Spielberg, consider the rest of your life f**ked!

  6. Hey Andrew,

    I personally don’t really like Saving Private Ryan. But there’s no denying it’s massively critically praised.

    I don’t HATE the movie. As a matter of fact there are a couple of things about it that I think are genius… but for the most part I personally think it’s highly over-rated.

  7. I think the Golden Globes are full of shit…the Academy Awards aren’t that far behind.

    Its more about giving the award to who is popular or who lost last year but we need to make up for it this year and give it to them and shit.

    I’m still bitter over the fact that Gustavo Santaolalla has won two Oscars which he did not deserve!!!

    John Williams should have won his Sixth Oscar for Memoris of a Geisha and Javier Navarrete should have won for Pan’s Labrynth.

    At least Williams won a Golden Globe for
    Memoirs of a Geisha….I still don’t like the Golden Globes.

  8. Oh, and I love how the folks at the Golden Globes shamelessly pander, even waaaay moreso than the Academy.

    I think the foundation of The Globes was, we’ll give you lots of awards mr. and mrs. uber-celebrity and a free meal and plenty of free booze, if you just show up and legitimize our vague and useless organization (The Hollywood Foreign Press…)

  9. Amistad was an amazing movie… I’m always recommending it to friends. In the last decade he’s put out some stuff that I haven’t really loved but he’s built up enough credibility with me that I’ll give everything he does a chance.
