I watched the Golden Globes a little while ago, and I've got to hand it to them -- it's a nice little show. However, I preferred the Award ceremony I attended earlier in the day, the Awards Brunch for the Palm Springs International Film Festival. True, the Globes had Bill Clinton bringing all his ex-presidential heft to plugging Globe Best Picture nominee "Lincoln," but here at Palm Springs we had Udo Kier arguing with the people at the buffet table about when they were going to start serving.

Ah, Lincoln Center. An eerily sanitized white spot
of land set aside for the arts in the middle of a grimy, busy city. It this
location where I find the New York
Film Festival, now in its 50th year.
