Globs of Gold

The Globe nominees are out; you'll find them here.

But let's get real about this award. The show is good fun, and the stars and big shots turn out in force to participate in the televised festivities. But the Golden Globes are a total and complete joke, chosen by stringers for the foreign press.

It's been this way since the Globes beginning during World War II. Seventy-odd years later, Hollywood likes to pretend that the little trophies are significant in some way, but they're not. Except maybe that reality doesn't matter, because if everybody acts like the Globes are a Big and Important Deal, then by grab, they ARE a big and important deal.
