The Golden Globe winners have been announced, and unbelievably, Viggo Mortensen did NOT win "Best Actor" for Eastern Promises. True, he did not really emote; he didn't scream and he didn't cry. He did not play a person with a disability. Yes, he had to learn a foreign accent - with some success. But what really made Viggo award-worthy was that steamroom fight. I wish they had a "best fight scene" category like they do on the MTV awards. He better win the MTV award or I am calling "shenanigans". He fought off TWO knife-weilding Russian mobsters, including one who rose from the dead Carrie-style, all while completely naked. It was one of my favorite fight scenes ever, perhaps even making my top five.

Top five? Uh oh, I feel a numbered list coming on!!
