While I’m kind of over the whole movie awards thing – at least in terms of who wins, I do still enjoy the conversation that surrounds them. From the snubs to the nods, the parties to the costumes, the champagne to the hors d’oeuvres. The Golden Globes is leg one of the triple crown of movie awards. The others being of course The Spirit Awards and The Academy Awards.
Now that being said, one of the things I like about the GG is that they’re one of the few shows that honor not only movies but also television. Up until about five years ago that is probably something I would have frowned on or simply waved off. However in 2015 and 2016, arguably the best media I consumed were considered television shows – although that distinction is being blurred more and more every year (case in point: O.J.: Made in America).
La La Land leads this year’s film nominees with a total of seven mentions, followed by Moonlight with six. On the TV side, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” tops with five, followed by “The Night Manager” with four.
This year’s fiesta and award handouts, which are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be hosted by The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 8 at 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
