    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.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
