Golden Globe Winners

This Sunday night is sort of like the spring training for the Oscars. A lot of the winners tonight could solidify their positions as Oscar contenders. Some are already rock solid, but some are on shaky ground.

We like our lists around here and in some strange way these Award Ceremonies are the way Hollywood makes its own top five. So while The Golden Globes mean little compared to the Oscars and most of us around here prefer the Independent Spirit Awards (MUCH) more, I do like the format of this show much better; and to the stars, The Globes are becoming increasingly more important for their Oscar hopefulls.

So RowThree will be keeping tabs on the Globes tonight and updating the winners live as they happen starting at about 7:15 (well, in between scotch and popcorn refills). Stay tuned for all the winners and feel free to chat about this reason to have a get together in the forum below…
