>Is it just me, or does it seem too early for the Golden Globes to be this weekend? Regardless, I’m excited even though I barely know any of the celebrities. Over the years, movies that get nominated for these awards have never been seen by me. Sometimes because they don’t interest me (Avatar, Black Swan, Juno) and others because I just didn’t get around to seeing them (mostly everything else).
But how much stock should we really put into these awards? For God’s sake Burlesque was nominated one year for Best Comedy or Musical. Did you see that steaming pile of boredom? I wish I hadn’t.
Overall, the entertainment choices available to me have been sort of lame this year.
There isn’t a movie or TV show I’m excited about. I like Modern Family, but the kids on there annoy the hell out of me. They need someone to kick their ass. I missed Downton Abbey. Yes, I know. Netflix. The Help seems interesting, but that came out when getting to the movies was still a challenge for me. I can’t even remember what 50/50 was about and Bridesmaids looked funny, but I’ve heard that for some people it was more depressing because it hit too close to home.
So, I’ll watch the pregame on E! Whichever anorexic nobody they get to ignorantly talk to the actors will be a source of humor for me. Plus, it’s always fun to see what people wear. I want to be wowed by fashion, but most of the time these women have hairdos that look like they forgot to use a brush and left the house five minutes before showing up on the Red Carpet.
One good thing? Us folks on the West Coast get to see the show live. The three hour delay is so lame, every other awards show. I can Google the winners and not have to sit through stupid commercials or horrendously boring speeches.
