Good News - No Golden Globes this Year

Well… no Golden Globes with actors, which means no Golden Globes with audience. They might as well put up reruns of “Welcome Back, Kotter.”

This is probably the best thing to come out of the Writers’ Strike so far. With luck they’ll never have it again. For those of you who don’t know (and you are to be congratulated for not), the Golden Globes are given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a rag tag assembly of semi-employed stringers filing for the Bucharest Bugle or similar out of their local Starbuck’s. You can get their vote by paying for the Chai latte.

If you’re looking to put an end to “Awards Inflation,” this is the place to start.
