Scorsese and Eastwood split the Globes. Eastwood took Best Director, but the Aviator took Best Drama. (I would have called it the other way around because The Aviator is more brilliantly directed, but not as powerful emotionally, but ... whatever. A split is a fair call.) NOTE: the complete list of winners is found on pages two and three of the linked article.

Coach Carter takes the Weekend Box Office, while the Fockers hold on to second and passed $230 million. In Good Company surprised with per-screen revenues almost at the same level as Coach Carter, albeit in fewer theaters. Elektra bombed, finishing with far less per screen than the critically malight carry-over, White Noise.

The trailer for Swimming Upstream
  • "'Swimming Upstream' tells the compelling and inspirational true story of Tony Fingleton, a young man from a troubled family who found the inner strength to become a champion. Based on Anthony Fingleton's novel of the same name and set in 1950s Brisbane, Australia, Swimming Upstream stars Jesse Spencer as Tony, a young man who beats the odds to become a champion swimmer in spite of his overbearing, alcoholic father (Geoffrey Rush) and long-suffering but quietly heroic mother (Judy Davis). Overshadowed in his father's eyes by his brothers, it's only when Tony displays an extraordinary swimming talent that he feels he has a shot at winning his father's heart - and maybe even Olympic gold."

President George W Bush has said his re-election has vindicated his administration's policy on Iraq. In much the same way that President Clinton's re-election vindicated his wacky sexual escapades.

The trailer and three clips from Harry and Max.
  • "Harry (Bryce Johnson), aged 23, is a former boy band idol who is watching his younger brother Max (Cole Williams), aged 16, follow in his footsteps. Harry escorts Max on a long-promised camping adventure to the San Gabriel mountains above Los Angeles but things quickly turn serious as the boys discuss Harry's contradictory relationship with their family. Max's longing to connect with Harry both physically and emotionally grows even more, wanting to bring stability to Harry's life. In an effort to create a type of alternative family for his brother, Max goads Harry to rekindle his affections for his former girlfriend, Nikki (Rain Phoenix). Back from the weekend, Max realizes that he must redefine his relationship with his brother, and that only by setting boundaries can the boys grow into adulthood together."

Coach Carter kicks ass at the Friday Box Office. In Good Company also did better than expected, tying Elektra for second place among the new releases (third overall), despite being in half as many theaters.
