The Golden Globes

I am usually much more on top of the whole film scene. Year by year, my ability to keep up with current films depreciates. Still, it wouldn't be right to ignore the Golden Globes this weekend, despite the fact that I've seen a mere handful of the films--literally FIVE of the films and three of them were animated. One of my new year's resolutions is to go easy on myself. Keeping up with the latest new movie should not a race, a competition, or even a reasonable goal, really. That said, here are the film nominees. I rarely get too excited about the TV portion and am focused mainly on the GGs as a preview to the Academy Awards, my favorite award show of the year. (films I've seen are highlighted in red--I don't pretend to have a clue who will win)
