where's the corgwin's golden globe?

i was really excited that helen mirren won the golden globe for playing queen elizabeth in the queen. but i was pretty apoplectic that the CORGIS in the film did not win ANYTHING. not best supporting actors or nothin'.

i've been reading some reviews of the movie and i'm a little surprised at the evaluation of tony blair's role in the film that imply that he comes off well since he selflessly saves the royals. frankly, i thought he came off as a bit of a wanker. and the end of the film, where the queen reminds him the brits will eventually turn on HIM, seems to be a big sign of this. he comes across as a pretty malleable character, swayed by the queen for no particular reason, and then gets moralistic about it, refusing to listen to the input of those around him. but i'd like to think it's the corgis at the end who swarm around blair and the queen are the ones who give the real message. the final shot shows the corgis milling around in the garden and one of the corgis gives a wise bit of political advice--he stops to pee on a bush. yes, tony, you should have heeded his advice. smart dogs pee on bushes, they don't invade countries with them (especially against the express wishes of their constituency). wanker.

but i did notice something troubling in the movie. the queen is shown with her pack of corgis and with a set of black labs. for those of you familiar with the corgador, i appear to be a perfect combination of a corgi and a lab in one convenient package. what if i am the offspring of ROYALTY and possible heir to the british throne? has all my complaining about the goddamn british really been self-loathing? god save the corgador!
