The Golden Globes are This Weekend!

The following post is guest written by Brad Morris for Funkhouser.

Welcome to the 74th Golden Globes! The awards season kicks off with my personal favorite of all the awards shows. The reasons are the combination of an intimate setting with all the A list stars sitting around big tables boozing it up, and also Movies and TV are brought together in the same room. So we can cheer for our favorite TV shows to win *cough* Game of Thrones *cough*, while also watching and trying to understand how Ryan Reynolds made Deadpool so damn fun. So let’s take a look at the nominees. I’ve put an asterisk beside the nominee that I think and/or hope will win.
