I certainly haven't seen all of these movies and television shows to be able to fully judge what's going on, which is why I don't give predictions for the Golden Globes. However, to chime in on the things I did see that are nominated:

  • Wow. I have no horse in any of the TV races.
  • Wow...the movie side of things feels so flat to me. I didn't think there would be such little for me to buzz about. I feel so unenthusiastic about this, and that doesn't make me feel all that confident that the Oscars will be something great, either. This seems like a dud year.
  • Give Joker everything it's nominated for.
  • Don't you dare give Spirit the best original song. That was stupid.
  • I'm not surprised to see The Irishman all over the place, even though I was underwhelmed.
