Annual Golden Globes Haiku and Contest

AD makes haikus
Clever words strung together.
Let’s see what you do.

A Haiku is defined by three lines. The first line has five syllables. The second line has seven syllables and the third line has five syllables. Ideally, these represent three separate thoughts that tie in together.

The winner of this contest editor of AwardsDaily, will be winning a copy of five of the Golden Globe nominated films. These can be any of the movies in the race – foreign film, Best Actress, Picture, Animated…you get the idea. You may enter as many Haiku as you like.

Flailing on quaaludes
DiCaprio Tour de Force
The Wolf of Wall Street

Llewyn Davis tried
But Bob Dylan succeeded
Folk singer with cat.

Martin Scorsese
Knew too much about quaaludes
Rores were better.

Life in space is tough
Gravity being absent
I thought George was dead.

Oprah worked so hard
Sadly, Forest did so too.
But neither will win.

    Mitch Has Masaka,
    Llewyn Davis Has The Cat,
    Where Is HIs Scrotum?

    12 Years as The Wolf
    Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs
    Llewyn has the cat

    Damn!! That whole 5-7-5 thing is freaking hard!!

    Sorry Zach, I swear I wasn’t trying to copy you with Llewyn / Cat.

    Here’s to you, Jordan

    Al, it was almost “Llewyn Davis is the cat,” but the next line would have been weird after

    A Globe voter said
    If 12 Years went home empty
    They’d be called racist

    Myself, I’m not sure
    It’s much more likely that they
    Would be called tasteless.

    It’s not often said
    The most competitive globes
    Are in comedy

    Dern, DiCaprio
    Not a single gimme nod
    Bale, Isaac, Phoenix

    TV will be strange
    Will they finally Break Bad?
    Or order Netflix?

    And for that matter
    How’d Spader get in over
    Hamm, Dancy, Steve B.?

    BEST ACTOR EDITION

    Redford on a boat
    No dialogue? No problem
    Globes should recognize

    Matthew got skinny
    First film he kept his top on
    No meat on them bones

    Chiwetel dug deep
    Showed us the years on his face
    12 to be exact

    Tom Hanks on a boat
    Much more talking on this one
    Final scenes floored me

    Elba I’m sorry
    I missed your Mandela film
    Pacific Rim rocked

    Bale’s hairpiece was nuts
    But the acting was top notch
    No way he’s healthy

    Finally Dern leads
    After years of side man work
    Spotlight suits him well

    Leo does best work
    Will probably still get snubbed
    Oh what a cruel world

    Oscar, meet Oscar
    I think you’d like him a lot
    Please don’t skip his film

    The Master and Her
    Two stunning performances
    Phoenix is so good

  11. January 11, 2014

    The Wolf of Wall Street
    Jordan Belfort Loves Quaaludes
    Rat out your partners

    A damsel once said,
    “Bob Fucking Redford” to lose
    Truth or travesty . . . ?

    (Note: I was referring to a soon-to-be-semi-legendary remark made by the one and only Sasha Stone; and I quote, “I just don’t see how you invite Robert Fucking Redford to your party and not give him the prize. . . . .”. Therefore, I’ve amicably put my own Haiku as shown above with such a small wonder myself save almost any satirical notion; au contraire, it be but more on my part of the mixed feeling of pathos of life, in that, soon, such conception will reach the beauty en lumiere as to whether or not Mr. Redford shall prevail come the Golden Globe.) (For record: I’m with Sasha.)

    (I like this Haiku segment. So, I think I’m going to, er, come again . . . . later. After refilling my mojo, I mean.)

    They’re forgettable.

    This, though, is my taste.
    It’s the meaning of MY life.
    Don’t believe in ‘best’s.

    Hard to be a hipster
    Who knows so well as Frances?
    And we all go “Ha”.

    Well, I feel hustled
    Russell is not Scorsese
    But wishes he were.

    Ask the Wall Street Wolf
    “Have you any %#$%ing wool?”
    “Yes, sir–three hours full.”

    Wikipedia
    Says more about Mandela
    Than Elba got to.

    Joaquin loves Scarlett
    But it takes two to tango
    Hard without a body.

    Robert may be lost
    But Hemingway would be proud;
    Silence is golden.

    Matthew lost some weight,
    And Jared wore some makeup,
    So ALL THE AWARDS!

    Sandra went to space
    Had very, very bad luck
    The End. – “PERFECTION!”

    12 Years of slavehood–
    “I want to live, not survive”–
    Silence and applause.

    Llewyn Davis says:
    “Folk you, folk you, and folk folk!”
    The cat just wants milk.

    Bruce won a million,
    Or not–it doesn’t matter.
    Stoic is the word.

    Judi wants her son,
    Steve wants to complain a lot;
    Both wishes come true.

    Hunt versus Lauda–
    A Ron Howard film with sex?
    Oh, so 70s.

    Sorry, Paul Greengrass–
    South Park beat you to the punch.
    “Somali pirates we”.

    Sorry, Cate and Kate,
    I never saw your movies.
    ANYONE see Kate’s?

    Meryl, Julia:
    That trailer looks like garbage.
    You’d better impress.

    Snooty old Travers
    Met happy Mister Disney;
    Made a better film.

    Julie and Julia–
    No, not the one with Meryl–
    Better luck next time.

    Only three cartoons,
    And these foreign films are meh–
    Except the cartoon.

    Let’s get this done with,
    20-14 ought to be
    A greener pasture.

    BEST ACTRESS EDITION

    Blanchett should have won
    For Elizabeth years back
    This year she gets it

    A one woman show
    Sandra kept us all enthralled
    Space is a tough place

    Dame Dench always kills
    This film is no exception
    Going blind? Not sure

    Emma got caught up
    In controversy, too bad
    Her role still stands out

    Labor Day got panned
    But no one hated on Kate
    Seeing this one soon

    Amy, I’m sorry
    The script left you high and dry
    You did what you could

    Before Tomorrow
    I will hope you get your due
    Julie is divine

    She’s undateable?
    I really do not think so
    Greta is a catch

    From Elaine to Veep
    Julia has made us laugh
    Here, she opens up

    Meryl said some things
    The media got her wrong
    Are her chances hurt?

    If 12 Years a Slave
    Goes home empty-handed, then
    I will eat my hat.

    Defy Gravity,
    Steve McQueen, and no longer
    Be confused for thesp.

    What a year when Kate
    Winslet is the least likely
    To win in her field.

    I love Amy, but
    That monologue about the boots
    Should get Streep ninth win.

    Jeanette or Jasmine,
    Gives Blanche run for her money.
    Blanchett for the win.

    Cate Blanchett is great,
    But the role of a lifetime?
    Every part she plays!

    Virgin Queen, Oscar
    Queen, Elf, Allen muse, The Bard.
    Nothing Cate can’t do!

    Cate versus Judi,
    God must be testing me with
    Notes on a Scandal.

    Frozen has best song.
    If Please Mr. Kennedy
    Wins, can’t Let It Go.

    Always unsung hero,
    That Butler of the White House.
    Oprah sits at home.

    The box office queens,
    Julia, Sandra, JLaw.
    Welcome back to Globes!

    Ms. Louis-Dreyfus,
    Come a long way from Elaine,
    Seinfeld curse broken.

    The Wolf, a Hustle,
    Incest, old age, OS love.
    Where’s the comedy?

    She tried to stop Walt.
    But what would P.L. Travers
    Say of biopic?

    Jared Leto,
    Fresh off of BAFTA snub, but
    Still the frontrunner.

    From My So-Called Life
    To Academy King (Queen).
    What about Claire Danes?

    AIDS, cocaine, and Mud
    McConaughey worked his ass
    Off — literally.

    Scandal, Julie, Doubt,
    Titanic, Fighter, Charlie!
    Reunions tonight!

    The “Comedy” list
    Is in itself comedic—
    The films have few laughs.

    No guts no glory—
    An op’ning dance routine by
    Neil Patrick Harris.

    Who will win the Globe?
    Masterful look at slave’ry
    Or Bullock in space?

    While some point out Rush
    As a surprise nom, don’t fret—
    It’s not “The Tourist.”

    Never in my life
    Chiwetel Ejifor pops!
    Winner, no statue.

    Streep pops Percocet

    Guys ! Had Jennifer Lawrence been nominated for Catching Fire, she’d have definitely bagged the Oscar. Honestly, that was a stellar performance.
    The Academy just roots for the mainstream movies. Another Oscar snub – Catching Fire for best costume design. Great Gatsby took home the big prize. Like designing a flapper dress is hard -_-

    And Lupita. While she is gorgeous and a fine actress, she had nothing on Jennifer Lawrence. Jen’s character progressed from devious,vindictive housewife to wife to mother to EVERYTHING. She was brilliant.

    BUT Julia was robbed big here ! She was incredible in August, and I’m not even a huge Julia Fan. How she was demoted to supporting actress, I’ll never understand,but nevertheless, she was absolutely brilliant.
    Somuch of emotion and agony radiating through her performance.
    ”EAT THE FUCKING FISH”
