    Dick Clark literally said on Howard Stern once, that the smart thing he ever did, was the Golden Globes. He took the inconsequential Hollywood Foreign Press, and turned those 22 (or whatever) assholes, and made it a whole fucking event. People got drunk, some people watched it, and WELCOME TO AWARD SEASON EVERYBODY! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    Because even if the award is essentially meaningless (I believe it’s 90 people in the HFPA), it’s still a really entertaining show.

    C’mon, I get enough signs of the apocalypse in the hard news pages, now I go to my safe place and find Golden Globe winners Chuck Lorre and Peter Farrely? The earth is just going to open wide.

    The Globes are the stand-in for the entertainment press, generally, in the awards line-up. Considering that the entertainment press is a larger, and far more widely read, part of the movie industry than the critics, the show makes sense. The group could be larger and more representative, but I doubt if the group’s reputation would be better if it included entertainment writers from the US.
    Seems to me they, the HFPA, at the least, understands that they are in the entertainment industry. More we can say for the pompous Academy.

“That’s the joke of Prune, that we just pretend to be a restaurant. But we’re actually an institute for living. We hide behind the fried eggs, and we hide behind the marrow bones, but really what we’re doing here is trying to change the whole goddamn world, one lamb chop at a time. It’s slow going, but I think we’re getting there.”

“I’m into pleasure rebellion,” she says, lighting a cigarette. “I’ve shared all my misery and tragedy but in my personal life I’m a cheerleader, an optimist. That aspect of myself is not shared. Once you are free from trauma, you are going to luxuriate in pleasure and happiness – personal pleasure. A divine gluttony, I should say.”
