Golden Globes predictions

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has to stop thinking that the Golden Globes is an awards show. It's not. Rather, it shouldn't be. We need some relief from the stodgy, scripted thank-you fests. If I was producing the show, I'd make sure all the nominees were good and drunk before airtime. We can only hope our celebrities realize that we want good television, not good behavior. Save it for the 'scars, people.
