Awards shows are pointless. They are for gay dudes, lonely women, and people who work in the entertainment business. The Golden Globes last night showed just how utterly predictable most of them can be. Do you really need to have a panel of judges tell you that Heath Ledger deserved to win for The Dark Knight? No. You saw the movie and made your own decision, and it wasn’t hard. But for some reason I still get a surge of pride when my predictions come true. It’s basically like a long, drawn out game of Jeopardy. With that said, here’s the breakdown from last nights Globes, and a few pictures of hot women.
