Best Golden Globes show ever!

Awards shows are generally insufferable, to say the least.  But this year’s Golden Globes were simply the best…because they basically came in the form of a press release. 

Since the writer’s strike has cancelled this years award show, so we were spared the 4 hour show and instead offered a one hour “announcement” show with none of the winners.  That meant no speeches, not political rants, not moral high-horsing about how Americans should be living their lives and, most importantly, no horribly scripted “witty” banter between presenters. 

While the idea of reruns and reality shows all year is about as appealing as, well, an entertainment awards show, let’s hope the strike lasts long enough to ensure the Oscars go the way of the Golden Globes.  If that can’t happen, let’s at least hope for a strike by the choreographer’s union so we don’t have suffer through dance numbers.  Is that too much to ask?

You can see the list of winners here, though we were all winners tonight.
