Golden Globes honour a bunch of pretty crap movies and TV shows, quite frankly

The Golden Dildos Globes are done and dusted, and judging by a nominated lot that included James Corden as Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy (truly fucked choice) and where Sia’s atrocious Music was given credence, this year’s winners were a weird – but not truly wonderful – lot.

Again hosted by Tina Fey (virtually, from New York) and Amy Poehler (from Los Angeles), this year’s Zoomed affair was a tawdry one, even to latter-day, washed-up Hollywood standards. Showy, cheap and below-par quality.

Mind you, we agreed with a handful of the nods, including those for Promising Young Woman, Schitt’s Creek, Ozark, The Crown and the very hilarious Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. But for the most part, as a good ol’ Jew might say, “Meh”.
