The New Stuff

Golden Globe Nominees for 2011

One great thing the start of the new year brings amidst the winter lull are the movie awards, for those of you cinema addicts. It start with the Golden Globes, and the nominations have just been released. The one major difference between the Golden Globes and the Oscars is that the Golden Globe have “best of” awards for separate movie categories.

I like to read the lists just to get ideas of which movies are worth investing time in. If you are like me, you have lost count of the wasted hours you have spent that you can never get back watching worthless movies. So scan the list and tic the ones you think are likely to win. You can view the awards on Sunday, January 16 at 5pm PT.
