At this point, saying that the Golden Globes are pointless is about as original as saying that M. Night Shyamalan is a crappy director. The awards don't mean anything, but on the bright side, you get to watch really famous people get drunk and congratulate themselves. Really though, the only reason to stick around is to watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host for the second year in a row. At this point, they basically have a residency that won't get old as quickly as the one Billy Joel has at Madison Square Garden.
I like to write about movies, so that gives me an obligation to write about the awards, too. It is easy to immediately dismiss the Globes because they once nominated "The Tourist" For Best Comedy/Musical. But just remember that the Oscars once gave "The King's Speech" Best Picture instead of "The Social Network." The Golden Globes are a nice, light appetizer to the big feast. But enough with food metaphors. Here are my predictions for Sunday's show, which I will present without any explanation because the Golden Globes deserve no further intellectual thought:
Note: In case it is not clear, whatever is in bold represents my prediction for the winner of whichever given category.
