“The Academy Awards are business. The Golden Globes are fun.” – Warren Beatty.

Milton from The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis is exactly right. Let’s face it, The Golden Globes are ridiculous, but they can shine a spotlight on performances and projects that are otherwise overlooked.

The show itself is without a doubt the most entertaining awards show, as it honors both film and lowly television, with celebrities getting progressively sloshed as the evening wears on, and when you throw in a lively host like Ricky Gervais, well, it’s must-see TV.
