Say No Globe

The Golden Globe has been practically canceled. Instead of the lavish dinner gala, it’ll be just a news conference announcing the winners. I can totally live with that.

For the fact that I like the fun nature of the GG more than the Oscars, I will miss the awards this year. Actually, with the Oscars only another month away, will that be canceled too? Perhaps.

I am looking forward to another movie marathon though. I’d do it in a heart beat. Will check on AMC website everyday once the nominees are announced.

One point for the writers though!

Now, I usually don’t do my prediction of the Golden Globe like I do with Oscars. I still haven’t seen most movies, but that never stops me before, right? 😉
