Toy Story 2 Grabs The Globe

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globes Awards shocked the

world by naming TOY STORY 2 the best comedy or musical picture of 1999. The Woody and Buzz Lightyear feature beat out heavy-weight live-action films like: favored best flick, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH; Robert DeNiro and Billy Crystal's ANALYZE THIS; the Andy Kaufman bio-pic, MAN ON THE MOON; and mega-hit Julia Roberts-vehicle, NOTTING HILL. However, even though TOY

STORY 2 took home the honors, the television broadcast producers didn't

give the toon titans any respect. When accepting the award, producers,

Helene Plotkin and Karen Robert Jackson, where given the musical hook on

their acceptance speeches. They were the only recipients to have their

speech interrupted by the musical queue to cut their thanks short. In less

surprising news, the song "You'll Be In My Heart" by Phil Collins from

Disney's TARZAN won the best original song award. The 57th annual awards

honors excellence in film and television each year. This year's television

broadcast averaged 21.3 million viewers, down 3 million from last year

according to preliminary figures from Nielsen Media Research. In the U.S.,

the event aired on NBC at 8 pm Sunday, January 23, 2000.
