The Golden Globes: No Longer Just Respectable, They Now Have Taste | Variety

PAUL DRINKWATER/NBC JANUARY 8, 2017 | 10:07PM PT

A lot of people still like to talk about the Golden Globes as if they were the less-serious, more-fun, loose-cannon, everyone-in-the-room-is-relaxed-because-they’ve-had-a-few-drinks alternative to the Academy Awards. Okay, that is what they are, and on some level always will be.

        Ya gotta laugh, Pete. We elected an actor as President whose movie co-star was a chimpanzee name Bozo – and we loved him!

        Or do you mean R&V? If not, I’m missing something!

          A second typo in the same thread! My fingers must be putting on weight. Or I was thinking of Rhythm and Blues…xx

            And to add to the confusion, I’ve just realised that I read ‘man-bun’ as ‘man-bum’ yesterday and thought it was another expression for ‘builder’s bum”. Today I understand!

      I must confess that I found it slightly odd that you weren’t following! Lovely to have you on board.
