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


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. At this point, however, consigning the Globes to that description may also be a neat way of staying in denial over just how much, in the last 10 years, the once tatty…

      You got that right, GP. Sometimes, they blur the boundaries, as in Reagan and Schwarzenegger. Then, God help us!

    Despite Affleck’s (who I like as an actor) ‘Man-Bun’ (something I detest), I have just realised that it is high time I followed this blog.
    So here I am!

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

            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.
