So the Golden Globes were last night. Sometimes I live blog them. This is not one of those times. I just didn’t have the energy or the desire (or the sobriety) to do it.
The show was way less fun than it’s been in previous years (though maybe it’s only been fun for me because of the drinking during it). They went long early and just kind of sped through categories to get stuff over with. Which kinda defeats the purpose of an awards show.
But yeah. The first piece of our Oscar puzzle is now in place. Two more big ones coming on Thursday with DGA and BFCA. But until then, I really only have one question — why do the Globes keep putting that microphone back into the ground during commercials only to raise it back up like, a minute later? (more…)
Okay, so I legit had no idea the Globes were tonight. I was expecting them to be next weekend for some reason. Even though I post a list on this website to remind me of things to prevent a situation just like this. And like the Snowman Killer, I gave myself all the clues.
Fortunately I put absolutely zero effort into these predictions every year, so this’ll be real easy.
The fun for me is watching the show, not thinking about it. I’m getting drunk and texting ridiculous shit just like everyone at the damn thing. Because we know these things don’t matter, right? The voting body shares zero similarities with the Academy, so we’re left with a marker that may or may not pan out. Usually they get a handful and miss a handful. I’m sure this will be no different.
So let’s watch me pick names out of a hat and then scoff at all the TV nominees before I start drinking: (more…)
You can always count on the Globes to kick the season off with a bang. We’re here, guys. This is when it all officially begins.
Like usual, I can’t be bothered to wake up at 5am to see these happen live, so I’m finding out what was nominated as I go. Which means you get my unfiltered opinions on each of the categories as we go.
As I say every year — the Golden Globes mean very little to me, but since they do sort of set the pace for the season, they do have a modicum of importance. So let’s not take whatever’s here as scripture and more as a guideline for what might happen (and amusement, because after all, this is the most corrupt of all the voting bodies).
Here are your Globe nominees for this year: (more…)
