Gary Oldman: Golden Globes are bent

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy actor blasts Golden Globes for being too political

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ star Gary Oldman claimed that the Golden Globes were ‘bent’ at last night’s Jameson Empire Awards.

After picking up Best Actor, Oldman said that he was thrilled to win the award as it “isn't political” and was voted for by fans.

"I'm talking about the Globes," he said "which I think is bent to be honest.

"There's always a bit of that involved, people talk about the 'sympathy win' or someone will get something for their body of work rather than that role. The Oscars and BAFTAs, the voting is pretty straightforward. The Globes, the foreign press, is a whole different thing."

The Golden Globe Award is an accolade bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) recognising excellence in film and television.

Neither Oldman nor his ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ movie made the cut for this year’s Globes.
