Original Post 12/11/14
I totally overslept and didn't get to see the announcements this morning, I really prefer to watch it all unfold in real time, however..  THE NOMINEES ARE….
The nominations for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards were announced bright and early this morning at the Beverly Hilton hotel. During the traditional pre-dawn ceremony in Beverly Hills, HFPA president Theo Kingma introduced Kate Beckinsale, two-time Golden Globe Award-nominee Peter Krause, Paula Patton, and Golden Globe-winner and five-time nominee Jeremy Piven did the honors. The 72nd Annual Golden Globe® Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on Sunday, January 11, 2015, LIVE coast-to-coast on NBC from 5:00-8:00 p.m. (PST)/8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST)

I got to see SELMA on Wednesday and wrote the below on facebook after the screening: (Note:embedded facebook post will not be visible to those receiving Tinsel & Tine via RSS Feed)

Congratulations to "Selma" for all the Golden Globe Nominations! Best Actor: David Oyelowo, Best Director: Ava Duvernay, Best Original Song: "Glory" and most importantly - Best Motion Picture Drama!

Post update 1/2/14: Tinsel & Tine's Selma Interview with Ava DuVernay in Philadelphia

(use the full screen option to enlarge the images)

  • Boyhood (see T&T post) - Yes, definitely worthy of nomination, if for sheer commitment alone!
  • Foxcatcher - Haven't done my write up on Foxcatcher yet. It's definitely worthy of attention, but not nearly as engrossing a film as I went in thinking it would be.
  • Imitation Game (see T&T post)- Such interesting history, but not a great biopic, in my opinion, it was a bit flat.
  • The Theory of Everything (See T&T post) I had predicted noms for Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, but the movie was too long for as little as it had to impart.
  • Birdman - (See T&T post)  Very imaginative and well done. 
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel (See T&T post) one of my favorites! The colors, the absurdity - good film.
  • Pride - I don't even remember seeing a trailer or reading anything about this movie. Gotta check it out.
  • St. Vincent - (See T&T post) The young lead Jaeden Lieberher deserved a nomination.
  • Force Majeure (See T&T on Tumblr) - This was going to be a part of my Philly Film Fest coverage part 3, which I've yet to write. The film is an exploration of a marriage falling apart during a vacation, where the husband's act of self-preservation brings to light other issues, all handled with situational humor and interesting dynamics.
  • Wild (See T&T on Google +) was also supposed to be part of my Philly Film Fest coverage part 3. This movie does an amazing job of making the audience feel as uncomfortable, tired, scared and triumphant as the PCT Trail hiker Cheryl, played by Reese Witherspoon with grit & honesty. 

  • Into the Woods (see T&T post) What can I say, a movie musical would have to be awful for me not to enjoy it.
  • Top Five  (see T&T post) not nominated for anything, but I feel it should have been.
  • NightCrawler blew this movie off, now that Jake Gyllenhaal's been nominated, wish I'd seen it.
  • Annie - (see T&T post) not as dynamic and hip as it should have been, but Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx have great father/daughter chemistry.
  •  Big Eyes... You can't see them all, unfortunately :(

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST


The key to deciphering both the city it beautifully depicts and the man who eats it best - City of Gold

By Tinsel & Tine Contributor Denine Gorniak (The Bicycle-Chef)

What Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times food critic/writer, has done for food writing journalism and for the restaurants that he loves, the movie, City of Gold has done for Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles and its surrounding environs – it has planted taco covered kisses on them... READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE


...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST


With a film like this, food plays a main character in the story and I was lucky enough to get an interview with the film's Food Stylist, Janine Kalesis.READ POST

Food n Film: WAITRESS

Food n Film: WAITRESS
In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST


Those of us in attendance were not only given the opportunity to see Babette's Feast, the Oscar winning, Danish film, considered one of the all-time great "food films"; we also got to taste Babette's menu! READ POST

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
