I’ve fallen down on my job completely. (Nothing new there). The Golden Globes are TONIGHT. I knew they were coming, but it just didn’t sink in that they were tonight. They are typically fun because the stars get drunk. I don’t know if they are feeding them this time. Tina and Amy are hosting, but bicoastally, with Amy at the Beverly Hills Hilton and Tina at the Rainbow Room.
I looked at the nominees, and good Lord above, the ONLY movie I’ve seen that is nominated is Borat. I’ve not even watched Hamilton! The ONLY tv series I’ve seen is The Crown! But I may still try watching it because I do recognize the pretty people.
Alao, there is some controversy right now. It was revealed last night that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association hasn’t had a black member in the last 20 years. I don’t know why this is such a shocker for the Hollywood people.
It is a very small group of people (87 members) and they’ve always been a bit secretive about their membership criteria beyond being a foreign press person in Hollywood and I’ve read they don’t add many new members. So I just figured it was probably old white guys with a few women tossed in to be “diverse”.
If I end up turning it off, I will record so I can see Jane Fonda get the Cecil B DeMille Award and Norman Lear get the Carol Burnett Award. I love them both and should make for some interesting speeches. Hopefully they are fully vaccinated.
So, anyone else going to try to watch? I’m not promising that I’ll watch it all. I’m living with my folks right now, so I’m not always in control of the remote.
Show starts on NBC at 8 PM eastern (5 PM for us West Coast folk) I do love it when we can all watch a show at the same time. I’m sure E! will have some red carpet coverage beforehand – or whatever that means this year.
