Golden Globes

16 12 2006

No, not the boobs of some shiny statue, the awards given out for outstanding achievement in the fields of TV and Film by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Depending on what you read, the awards are either very prestigious, or the voters are willing to sell their vote for a bottle of Whiskey. Here are the nominations, and I’ve made bold my picks.  Read them after the jump:-

In the category above, if Alison’s husband from Medium had been nominated, I would have given it to him. and in the comedy category, 30 Rock is funnier than any of the nominees. In my opinion of course. If I haven’t picked a winner, its because I haven’t seen enough of the nominees and I’m not just going to pick one at random. I mean, why would anyone choose a winner like that? Huh?
