Did Burlesque BRIBE Its Way To A Golden Globe Best Picture Nomination??

| Filed under: Film FlickersConspiracy CornerAwardzCher


According to some, YES!

If you were surprised as us over Burlesque getting ANY recognition from the Golden Globes, not to mention a nod in the 'Best Picture' category, then you won't be surprised to hear that many are thinking that the HFPA members had a little, ahem, incentive to give the flick some accolades!

Patrick Goldstein, of the L.A. Times, explains:

"If you talk to the top award-season consultants, they can barely disguise their lack of respect for the HFPA members, who often put themselves in indelicate situations, as with this year's crew, which took a Sony-sponsored trip to Las Vegas to see Cher in concert, then gave her film a stunning best picture nod."

Wowza! Shady shady!

As much as we LOVE our Cher, we have to admit that this movie, as fun as it was, definitely seems a little out of place in the list of nominations!

But who knows?!

What do U think?? Should Burlesque be re-titled Bribe-lesque?

    Seriously. Stop with the Christina hate.

  2. 2

    That only makes sense. The movie sucked BIG time. And I've seen better acting in a cheap porno.

  3. 3

    Man Hollywood is going to shit……

    Totally makes sense. The movie got mostly bad reviews, there's no way it could've gotten Golden Globe nods without a little "help".

  6. 6

    good god can you not just be happy for this film?!
    its doing quite well in cinemas but im sure you'd say that theyre paying people to go see it

    Really Perez, stop this Christina hate. If you say this about Burlesque then you have to say the say thing about Angie and Johnny getting nominated for The Tourist. Or Jake and Anne Hathaway getting nods for Love and Other Drugs. Both movies and all the actors got pretty poor reviews.

  8. 8

    the tourist is basically in the same position tho…

  9. 9

    lol isn't that how it has always done? (running around securing and petitioning for votes)
    Honestly in the last 10ish years the film industry has been a joke. Just like government politics.

    I was the first to congratulate you when you said you were giving up bullying but now you just do it in a passive aggressive way. clever perez bullies christina without even mentioning her name, you must be so proud! oh, and I'm loving your little opinons on her relationship, too - bet you can't wait for that to fail. you are disgusting.

  11. 11

    Really? How do you think the Grammy nod's are decided? It's all payback and paola. The majors decide who is getting the nod this year and that's how the vote goes. Independent artists who are usually way better than any of the nominee's have absolutely no chance. It's as corrupt as any other corporate entity in this country.

  12. 12

    I would think you would post this because of Christina hate, but I hate to agree that while the movie was good, it's DEFINETLY not that good. It was one of those movies you see and then proceed to forget. So yeah, Burlesque definetly doesn't belong to those nominations.

  13. 13

    Re: cymro – Totally agree! I too, gave him a chance and even have responded kindly on several posts, but it's plain to see that he has not changed at all, just hidden the bullying, which is way worse, because its disguised. It's really very offensive. And to all the idiots who say don't come on here? I will continue to come on here and say the truth until this bully is taken down. When you keep bullying people like this, other people need to stand up and point it out. Peer pressure. Mario did not change, he just knew the tide was changing in regards to bullying and that people were calling him on his shit more and more, so he went underground. But he never got to the root cause of his bullying other people. It's deep seated emotional issues and he needs therapy to let it all go. You don't attack other people on a consistent basis, either right out in the open or as he is doing now, undercover, without it being all about yourself and your own mental issues. Mario is a bully and will continue to be one until he looks deep within himself.

    The only good comedy movie in the "Best Comedy/Musical" category is The Kids Are All Right. Alice in Wonderland is hardly a comedy, and wasn't all that good to begin with. RED is more of an action film. Burlesque sucked. The Tourist sucked even harder. Golden Globes = joke.

  15. 15

    Pia Zadora's husband actually bought her a Golden Globe years ago.

  16. 16

  19. 19

    I really enjoyed this movie, and in a year where they were limited in this category….I'm happy it got some golden globe love.

    Why is there a need to hate on it…time to start being positive…remember?

    I hope it wins this Golden Globe and that X-tina wins in her category because that song is amazing.

  25. 25

    This just in…Burlesque made 10.5 million this week in the US…take that haters…

  26. 26

    Now please mention how many believe that The Tourist was nominated only to bring big names (Angelina, Brad, and Johnny) to the Golden Globes to increase the ratings.

  27. 27

    it was a good movie!!!!!!
    hope burlesque wins!

  28. 28

    The Wrestler and Black Swan are definitely Golden Globe worthy, this movie however (yes, I have seen it), is not. As someone else mentioned before, yeah hollywood is going to shit, if stuff like this passes for Golden Globe material. And I'm not even hating on Christina, Xtina whoever she feels like being today but honestly the movie was so shitty. Obviously her fans are going to support it. Thank god we had some killer movies in the box office this year, so we can forget about this unfortunate cinematic…um "masterpiece" when we look back at the movies of 2010.

  29. 29

    you fucking BULLY……DIE Perez Hilton……
    the movie does great,it is amazing……jealous idiot…

  30. 30

    cooommeee oooon,Bitchesss…..Burlesque is nominated for the best comedy/musical,cause there were NO other good comedies/musicals this year…..so suck my cock

  31. 31

    Re: sk8terboy1983 – oh yeah….I wish Xtina takes the Golden Globe for Bound to you….

  32. 32

    OH, STOP IT NOW!!!! The Golden Globes are the Foreign Press here in the U.S., who says what THEIR TASTE IS MARIO? We question YOUR CRAPPY TASTE ALL THE TIME! And disagree with it. All these award shows are fixed, either a little or like the MTV ones, A LOT (only nominate those who probably will show). Look at the Emmys. All this PrimeTime shows and Some Shows have 10, 11, nominations. Granted, some, alot of shows are crap, BUT, each year, a LOT of shows, actors ARE IGNORED because they are not politically correct. AND THOSE WHO ARE POLITICALLY IN FAVOR, THROW THOSE NOMINATIONS THAT WAY!!!!! As for Burlesque, maybe the FP LOVES CHER!

  33. 33

    How is this different from any awards show?

  34. 34

    Yes, and lets get to the Tourist. the majority of Posts I have read, HATE IT. But, if Angelina is in it, (Depp does not automatically get nominations) she almost always, or at least, the FILM gets some type of nomination. Like that film where her son 'disappeared' and she was given another? Over one hour of her shouting 'HE IS NOT MY SON!' While the boy stands there looking sad. THROW HER AN OSCAR NOMINATION BECAUSE WE CAN THROW BRAD ONE TOO!!!!!! Now, if only we can convince or rig it so everyone votes for them. It is AMAZING that YOU and HOLLYWOOD thinks she is so much popular then she really is.

  35. 35

    This isn't new.. there are some movies that gets nominated and i feel like were they are crack.. enough with the Christina hating.. this girl has talent. I actually was listening to her 1st album before coming to your page.. so I might be a little protective.. but seriously enough.

  36. 36

    Re: ladygluva – agree that was the movie i was thinking about. The movie was bad for an angelina Jolie and Johnny depp standard. actually for any standard. horrible.

  37. 37


  38. 38

    lmao i thought u were gonna "Change" perez? lmao. i bet u in a few weeks, hes gonna go back to calling her FLOPtina.

    why do u hate xtina so much? lmao. ughhh perez, just go kill yourself already. we all hate you. you meth face wanna be, gaga obsessed FREAK.

  39. 39

    Hell no! What is up with your ALWAYS picking on Christina! Leave her alone she has more fans and has a waaaaay better carrer then you anyway!

  40. 40

    Re: tasha – Even though the movies themselves got poor reviews, Depp & Jolie and Gyllenhaal & Hathaway got positive comments on their work. Burlesque, on the other hand, has nothing going for it. It's Showgirls without the entertaining stuff (= ridiculous sex scenes).

  41. 41

    Re: light2you – EXACTLY!!!! i hate when people say "dont come on here then." FIRST OFF, i loved perez back in the day when he was into PARIS HILTON (hence his website name) but once he got all CACA obsessed, he changed and is soo annoying. all this hate came out of nowhere from him, so i hate him now and i will continue to come on here to talk shit to him just like he talks shit. i hate perez and i honestly have never hated so much IN YEARS. thanks Mario.

  42. 42

    All I know forsure is that I haven't seen it; and I'm not going to….so that's my vote.

  43. 43

    Re: XTINA IS A POP MUSIC ICON!!! BICHES!! – as much as i like xtina, her movie was/is not the best of 2010. quit being delusional. i swear, im a fan but im at least realistic.

  44. 44

    Re: XTINA IS A POP MUSIC ICON!!! BICHES!! – Oh, Lord. The 14 year old crazy Xtina fan is back. With her uneducated remarks, and terrible grammar. You are a very sad individual. Seriously, you have anger issues, and need to get a life.

  45. 45

    Re: DIE PEREZ HILTON! – you do know you look like an ass when you take the time to visit someone's site, create a profile and then tell that person to kill himself because 'we all hate you', right?

  46. 46

    Re: Abbs5522 – agreed. i havent seen the tourist yet but the preview sucked and i love angie and johnny. i was sooo stoked that they were finally making a movie. but it looked like a shitty one. so if the preview sucked, im sure the movie did too. just like perez tweeted saying that it was an okay movie. and if that movie is being nominated, of course its to bring high ratings.

    all these awards are a joke now.

  47. 47

    Re: AshNrj – yes, DIE PEREZ HILTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. 48

    Re: DIE PEREZ HILTON! – In other news,Perez said something nice about Avril's new single this weekend,so there's still hope.
    Maybe he's spreading his new found niceness around alphabetically and hasn't gotten to the C's yet.

  49. 49

    Why can't you leave Christina Aguilera alone? The movie was good. Just like her Hollywood star, you said that was "paid" for too. She's talented, end of story. Give it a break already.

  50. GG78 says – reply to this


    Still hating on Christina I see. I hope she woops your ass one day, Perez. You hateful lil kunt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. 51

    The Tourist also got terrible reviews, and Jonnny Depp was ripped apart in every review I saw…and the movie AND Depp got nominated.

  52. @v@ says – reply to this


    Isn't that how it works anyway? Besides, a rumor doesn't make it so.

  53. 53

    Re: tashaRe: Abbs5522
    That makes sense - I just posted that I didn't understand how it got nominated. The Tourist, for the most part, got negative reviews, and every review I read said Depp was AWFUL (but that Jolie was good). I was surprised to see the movie and Depp nominated.

  54. 54

    i have no idea why perez keeps hating on chrisina..seriously. your sick.
    anyway, the song 'bound to you' is amazing and totally deserved the nomination. cant say the same about the movie itself, since i havent watched it yet.

  55. 55

    Per as much as I adore and love you I have to say, it would be cool if we could stop on the Xtina hating. Every-time yer wifey has a shower its in the top headlines on here. "Gaga had a shower!! Luffa or sponge? What did she use to clean herself today? Thoughts?" Perez I think its worth pointing out that you will prob be around a lot longer than your current wifey, maybe you just don't see that yet. It jus takes away from you "Perezness" when you favour to heavily!
    Much Love JJ

  56. 56

    its not like burlesque is nominated for best actress or anything like that; 2 of the nominations are for best song, which, in my opinion, are well deserved. both cher's song and christina's song are amazing. just stfu already with the passive aggressive jabs at christina, we all know you just want to see her fail.

  57. 57

    Re: AshNrj – You call someone an idiot and then tell them to die?? Sounds like YOU'RE the bully- not him.

  58. 58

    Re: Hesnotintou – The music industry is the biggest joke though. :/

  59. 59

    Re: pinkmafia – i've seen all three movies too, and i'd agree completely with what you said about black swan and the fighter (i assume that's what you mean, not the wrestler) being award-worthy and burlesque being lucky that anybody went to see it at all, let alone award-worthy. the fighter wasn't the most original concept in the world, but all aspects of it - acting, script, directing, etc. - were excellent and i was riveted throughout the duration, and black swan was one of a kind and i can only hope that more movies like it come out in the future, because it was like nothing i've seen and from beginning to end it was an exciting and unbelievable ride. none of these statements, i feel, can be applied to burlesque, and it's nice to see that someone else feels the same way. :)

    Perez is such a douche bag! i don't know why i still check this site, but i do. He clearly does not like Christina, and it's obnoxious as hell. just don't post anything about her, if you don't like her. As if Perez doesn't offer certain celebrities, (Ahem, Lady Haha, Katy Perry, among many others) positive PR, for all the photo's that make it appear as though he is best friends with all of them. I'd bet money on that fact that he accepts money, back stage access, interviews, or other luxuries, for all of the positive reviews and posts he makes on their behalf. There's also the inconsistencies with his sometimes hatred-sometimes love for BEP and Eminem. He supports trash and that's what our music industry is becoming. He gives gay men a bad name, but couldn't get a date without this website. He lives his life, and suplements it by blog bribes. pathetic display, and just bad ethics. still the most famous blog bully out there though!

  61. 61

    i dont believe this for a second i love burlesque it was great! and christina aguilera singing bound to you in the movie was AMAZING! she was soo beautiful and shes incredinbly talented! i dont think anyone should hate on her or rain on her parade cus theyre jealous!

  62. 62

    This Perez Hilton goes to Ellen's show so regretted for all the bad things he had said about people before and for being called Bullier . . . but in fact he was just tryin to call attention to himself, just a bad acting shit man . . he is still being the same bullier untalented ridiculous unskilled gay . . . how can he be even giving himself the right to say bad things about Christina Aguilera when she is such a talented voice gifted woman and the best perez has ever done its a stupid song called The Clap "and you wanna talk about bad voices" Stop messing with Christina . . you are a gay man perez and she support gay men, you should do better . . shame on you! . . . . . . BURLESQUE WAS AWESOME

  63. 63

    Re: Betch84 – I think your just as he/she is. We all know you don't like Xtina, but your still here on like every Xtina related post talking shit. :/

  64. 64

    Did "The Tourist" bribe its way in too then?

    "Bribe-lesque?" Careful Perez. Not cool to accuse people of being on the take when you have no proof. Stupid.

  71. 71

    I'm just upset The Town didn't get more nominations. Thats movie was awesome. One of the best this year for sure.

  72. 72

    The tourist doesn't deserve nominations either, but you won't put that movie on blast because your beloved Angie is in it.

  73. 73

    u cant take the golden globes seriously. after all they were the ones that gave pia zadora a golden globe for her movie "butterfly" back in the day. the golden globes are a joke.

  74. 74

    Re: DIE PEREZ HILTON! – plus its fun to read some of the nasty stuff people say about perez. it cracks me up. some of the people here say some pretty funny stuff and should be comedians themselves. i think i would support perez and maybe even like him if he wasnt such a disgrace to the gay community, the latino community and, heck, a disgrace to the human race in general.
