The question the [Academy] awards are concerned with is not “what film marks the greatest artistic effort?” but “which film can best be defense against the charge of philistinism?”

I think it's because there's NFL playoffs on another channel so the others are running with their "least likely to appeal to football meatheads" programming right now. I'm surprised they're not going with "Ru Paul's Project: Tutu".
I like the Golden Globes simply BECAUSE they're a little trashy and drunken, and because they actually represent the full extent of Hollywood, and not just the pious uplifting bullcrap that the Oscars are always neck-deep in. The GGs are much better than the Oscars, and a little worse, too.
As Tom Shone wrote recently on Slate: And Ricky Gervais is PERFECT. I hope his stuff burns going down tonight.
It's kind of like what you guys do with Mudede.
If the Goddam Globs were smart they would pay writers to come up with zingers for the stars to shoot back at Ricky. That would make the whole thing like a bunch of friends teasing each other instead of a bully picking on the stars.
Still, I don't mind the "golden globes" of Claire Danes and a few others.
For the NFL people: FUCKING GIANTS. I am still half unable to believe it. I thought we were so dead and done for.
What weird speeches by Madonna and Streep. That would never happen at the Oscars -- which is what makes the GG's so fun -- it gets more and more campy as it goes along.
It's called http://hulu.com
