A Review of The Golden Globes: aka your new homework.
Ok, Oprah. And then some other stuff.
I know this may be old news to some of you by now, but if you missed the Golden Globes you need to know this stuff. And don't tell me "I don't care about those stupid awards shows" because that's second place to saying "I don't watch TV". This is your WORLD and your CAREER. No, you don't need to see every single foreign film that is nominated. It is important you know what is winning. This is not only a huge conversation starter for this town, but it's also where the studios and networks and even indie folk are going to put their minds and their money.

You have to watch Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Oh and Big Little Lies, Handmaids Tale, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
