Hollywood Foreign Press Awards Announced

I mean the Golden Globes are out.

Almost, but not quite as silly as the Grammys, the Golden Globes were announced today. You can read the nominees here.

How silly are the Golden Globes?

Lost’s Evangeline Lilly is nominated as best actress in a drama. We love Lost and we love Lilly. Hell if there was a best hottie in a drama award she’d get our vote in a quicker than Michelle Rodrigues can get a speeding ticket. However, Meryl Streep Lilly is not.

Of course, we shouldn’t be too rough on Lilly. Ellen Pompeo is nominated in the same category.

Awarded by that obscure little group known as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globes is prominent for one reason: celebrities get tanked at the show and make slobbering fools of themselves during the ceremony.

This is better than the MTV Awards, which has attmpted in recent years to horn in on this action, because with the MTV Awards you always feel part of the lewd behavior is staged.

The Golden Globes features genuinly lewd, obnoxious celebrity behavior. Not a bad way to spend a night of TV viewing.
