|The Golden Globes are bogus and a sham|
For many years I have enjoyed watching the Golden Globes, and I always found it odd how they were so easily predictable and that's based on this small organization's immature fixation on mega-stars and popular trends. Basically, they do not think outside of the box, they are incapable of doing so. But this year is different because a very important film that needed to be made, deserves to be recognized and honored. It's clear that 12 Years a Slave is an American story that is not the kind of film that the journalist who are members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association finds worthy of honoring. Tonight, they are honoring a very different type of American film and HPFA is on the American Hustle train.
I'm disgusted with the Golden Globes so much now, so fed up with their star-fucking, that I'm going to make it official and never watch the show again. My reaction is not out of the norm, I know many people who hate the Globes and tried to tell me what a bunch of bullshit it all is. As a matter of fact Nikke Finke on Twitter was suppose to do a live snark on the "(fake) Golden Globes" - those were her words, but she later posted that she was advised by legal counsel to not do a live tweet snark on the GGs. When someone like Nikke Finke publicly declares that an award show is "fake", which is due to the behind the scenes deals to secure a GG award, it is fake and not to be taken seriously. But, I still fell into the drama and wanted my favorite film of the year, and actor to be award. But that is not going to happen, and I'm moving on.
HFPA are hacks and I should not have taken them seriously all these years. It took this year for me to finally get a clue that there is a not more going on with this organization than meets the eye. This organization has serious legitimacy issues, they have serious credibility issues, and they are not worth my time anymore. The film that we all enjoy will receive proper recognition in one form or another from the real award ceremonies that occur in the following six weeks.
