Best and worst of the 2014 Golden Globes
Amy Adams, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Bryan Cranston all had a good night
Worst - Continued marginalizing of TV
The head of the Hollywood Foreign Press always makes a big deal about how the Golden Globes are the only only award show that recognizes both film and TV. While technically true, TV remains comically marginalized. I get that a show that's always on NBC isn't going to dedicate very much time to celebrating TV shows on other networks, but the priority discrepancy is laughable. We have to get trailers for each and every nominated movie, but the Best TV Series Drama category was announced 41 minutes into the show with hardly any pomp. I mean, good gravy, the Globes gave Best TV Drama to Aaron Eckhart and Paula Patton to present. That's an insult. And giving Best TV Series Comedy at 10:20 meant that the show got to close with 40 minutes of commercials and movie awards.
