I admit that Elmer Bernstein should have won the Golden Globe. I am not bothered by the fact that Elliot Goldnthal is a Golden Globe winner For Best Score, but what does bother me is that he won for the wrong score. Of all the good scores he has written (Interview With the Vampire, Batman Forever, Heat, Titus, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within), I can't believe that his score for Frida would be the one to bring him a Golden Globe or Oscar. This year's Golden Globes and Oscars are pretty screwed up.
