The award season for cinema ends with Academy Awards for most people; but it is not where it ends that matters, it’s where it starts, the Golden Globes. Commonly referred to as the Oscars’ drunk cousin, the Golden Globes are often a minor attraction compared to Hollywood’s biggest night. So I write to plead with you to not throw away what is Hollywood’s most magical night. The Academy Awards are sophisticated and erudite but the Golden Globes are honest and sincere. At the Golden Globes people trip and that’s okay.
In truth the Golden Globes are not a highfalutin dramatization of humanity, they capture us as we are, flawed and funny with our flaws; just like cinema, just like the movies we love.
