By Sally DeeringJoey Pants’ award-winning documentary No Kidding, Me Too! sheds light on mental illnessWhen the cameras rolled, actor Joe Pantoliano dug deep into his dark side to portray characters whose personal demons drove them to commit violent, unthinkable acts.

So the limos are parked, the gowns and tuxedos have been hung in the closet, or given back, and the bling has been taken back by the designers; the Golden Globes are officially over.
As I sat there that night and watched the whoâ€™s who in Hollywood and television, I couldnâ€™t help but think of all the cynicism and backstabbing and day to day antics that go on in this pretty world of make believe.
