ggawardThe Golden Globe Awards are to be aired this Sunday, January 11 from 8 – 11 PM. It is usually an overblown self-love festival and totally out of kilter with reality. Does it matter who wins? Maybe. Is it fun? Absolutely. It can be a precursor to the Oscars or not. What can be fun is that the recipients tend to be drunk and that is always fun to watch and can be surprising. You can read about the Hollywood Foreign Press on the do-good, self-promoting part of their website.  If you want to see who the 90 voting members of the Foreign Press are, click here.

Newsweek has a Ten Most Embarrassing Moments of Golden Globes ceremonies past including such silliness as ladies wearing the same dress, ladies in the bathroom when their names were called, a Liz Taylor screw up, a Grey’s Anatomy faux pas, groping Scarlett Johannson, Oliver Stone’s diatribe, Brad Pitt’s Kaopectate moment, Bjork!, Jack Nicholson’s ‘moon’ and more.

There is also a Newsweek Trivia Quiz for one and all. (I failed miserably).
