It is a sad day when someone like Elliot Goldenthal wins a Golden Globe Award in preference to Elmer Bernstein. It is a pity that Goldenthal's talents (if he has any) as a composer do not extend to his ability to function as a human being on this planet. Elmer Bernstein on the other hand is both an imcomparable composer and a genuinely wonderful human being. The Golden Globe belonged to Elmer Bernstein and the failure of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in realising this is an insult to their own integrity and that of the award itself.
On a lighter note Elmer Bernstein still has an opportunity to win the Academy Award in March and we all have the opportunity to show Elliot Goldenthal that he is not worthy of mention in the same breath as Elmer Bernstein.
