This time of year is awesome for us pop-culture fanatics because it’s award season. All the best movies get released around now, and all the extra juicy celeb gossip is overflowin’.
The Golden Globes (voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press…uh…whatever) usually kicks things off, covering both television and film, while dividing everything into “Drama” or “Comedy or Musical.”
I figured it would be fun here at THE BLOG to do our own little awards on this year’s Golden Globe nominees (announced today). So, the envelope please…
