It’s very frustrating to sit through an awards show and basically be told that the show is probably rigged. It became a running gag during the 73rd Golden Globes that not everything was on the up-and-up which made what began as an entertaining evening (Ricky Gervais was very funny) into a tedious chore of watching station ads, trailers for the nominated movies, and award winners that seem more cherry picked than earned. So I apologize if the post-Golden Globes podcast sounds a bit on the angry side but it after a week of watching on average two movies a week to get caught up on all the nominees, it felt kind of pointless in the end.

 

I apologize if there were some audio issues with the podcast. I was trying a slightly different setup and I have a bit of a sore throat. I know the sound quality isn’t awful but I’m a bit of a stickler for audio so the fact that the sound fidelity may only be 9 out of 10 still bothers me.

 

Here’s a link to the Metacritic list I mentioned on the podcast.

The 72nd Golden Globes was here and now gone. The big winners are Boyhood, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything. The big losers were the people (including me) who had to sit through that insufferable telecast. It was really bad and it was truly three hours of my life wasted. If you didn’t watch the show, you can download my recap of the broadcast where I not only discuss the winners and talk about the high and low moments of the show but I offer up some analysis as well as where we are heading as the Oscar nominations are coming out this Thursday.

There will be the usual Weekly Movie Podcast on Tuesday as well as a podcast talking about the Oscar nominations on Thursday.
