Yep, 71 years the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been handing out awards, all starting with the 1st in Los Angeles in 1944.

Hmmm, 71 + 1944 don't add up to 2014..shouldn't it be 70 yrs? Or did it actually start in 43?

Yeah, it does look confusing, Techs. It did indeed start in 1944 but it was for the best films of 1943. Each year the awards are presented to the winners of the nominees for categories in films (and TV shows since 1957) at the ceremony for the previous year's releases.

 

Bryan Cranston and Breaking Bad just won awards a few minutes ago for last year's final season.

Well, I do take rather kindly to your act of generosity NBJ. I will return the favour first opportunity that I deem fit my friend..

It is vital that you relax completely and release any tension from your body as you hold your breath.

My sister took a course in tourism and travel 25 years ago, and even then they gave students exercises like "book a trip for 2 from Amsterdam to London", and they'd all fail because none of them asked to find out that they actually meant London, Ontario.

Someone ordered a cake from Walmart.

Told them they wanted, "Best wishes Suzanne" and underneath that "We will miss you"

This is what they got.

On BBC TV on Friday night while reporting on the Chinese Year of the Horse, there was an error in the subtitles.

I don't know about the globe, but I'd certainly celebrate that Chinese holiday... :P

Sure sounded Merican to me. *shame* :blink:

 

I worked for a military contractor deploying Joint Command and Control systems from the Panama City Florida and in our meeting before coming the Germany, I had to interject on the basic points. The major one was "Damen" does NOT mean "the men" and "Herren" does NOT mean the "women". It could have been a nightmare.
