The Golden Globes are Hollywood’s biggest party, and the second biggest award show of the season. The Globes aren’t much of an indicator for Oscars, but they have embraced that and often have some fun picks. And then they have certain nominations that leave you scratching your head. Fortunately, there should be very little of the latter this year as both the drama and comedy/musical section of the Globes have a glutton of quality films to choose from.
