Golden Globes 2017

  • Best picture, drama: “Moonlight”
  • Best picture, comedy or musical: “La La Land”
  • Actress, drama: Isabelle Huppert, “Elle”
  • Actor, drama: Casey Affleck, “Manchester by the Sea”
  • Actress, comedy or musical: Emma Stone, “La La Land”
  • Actor, comedy or musical: Ryan Gosling, “La La Land”
Not that any of this matters in the slightest. As the cartoon notes, there are only 93 voters of the "Foreign Press", who are mostly not really foreign, nor are they really journalists... but their identities are well known. And so for folks who are trying to get their picture noticed and voted on by the Oscar voters, getting your show to take a spraypainted doorknob is a good investment in the movie business.

There are quite a few things about the Golden Globes that raise quite a few eyebrows. Here's an article about it, if you care. Yes, the link is to Fox News, which programs opposite NBC - so read it with a grain of salt.
