10.) Confused it with “Black Swan.”
9.) After Stanley Tucci said “Well, Alice, welcome to Wonderland” – they thought it was some kind of prequel.
8.) Complimentary ammunition for host Ricky Gervais.
7.) Attended special screening followed by eyeliner application demo with Cam Gigandet.
6.) The only film not released in 3-D this past year.
5.) It was either this or “Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer.”
4.) Trade ads with Christina Aguilera saying “What a girl wants is a Golden Globe nomination.”
3.) Wait – there’s a separate category for musical/comedy?
2.) Think they would be getting this kind of free publicity with “Made in Dagenham?” (They weren’t born yesterday.)
1.) Plan to seat Cher with cast of “Glee” to test gay spontaneous combustion.
