Golden Globes 2017



So here we go, award season begins with the Golden Globes (on Sunday) and I am really excited. January and February are the best months of the year, specifically because of award season. I look forward to it all year round and thoroughly enjoy watching them (even if they are 3+ hours). I just love the movies, the TV shows, the acting, and the stories. It's amazing what can be conveyed in a 2 hour movie or a 1 hour episode of a show. For every award show, I will be creating a list of who I think will win and then afterwards go through and see how well I did. So here we go:

So now that the Golden Globes have ended award season has begun and the awards will be dished out. With the first award done and dusted it begins the domino effect of movies and TV shows that will be adorned with awards that will catapult shows into stardom and will cement the popularity of other shows. My score for this evening was:

10/24.

Definitely not a good start (lol) but of course award season is long and I always get better. I definitely enjoyed the show, specifically Meryl Streep's speech and her award. She so deserves everything good that has come to her and will come to her and her speech was so important.

Until next time...
