This is a dog's breakfast

Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? If so, can you spot the error in the above image? Except for a short intro sentence not included in the screen capture, the image contains the entire article ("Tommy Lee Jones: Golden Globes curmudgeon" on Yahoo! Canada OMG! on January 13, 2013), and the entire article is garbage. What does "the male nominees in the best supporting film category" mean? I know the difference between an actor and a supporting actor in a film, but what's the difference between a film and a supporting film? Beyond that, Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell weren't even presenting the award for any male nominees; they were presenting for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical. Here are some comments made by other readers of the article:
  • "They weren't presenting for Best Supporting Actor they were presenting another award. Tommy Lee Jones had already lost at that time."
  • "Obviously whoever wrote this didn't watch the golden globes."
  • "They weren't describing the men category they were describing the women category, did you even watch the Golden Globes? The clip show them making fun of Meryl Streep's name!!!"

Yahoo has the worst writers. They're constantly screwing up the facts and they have only the faintest grasp on the English language. And they don't bother to spell-check.
