Tonight is one of the greatest holidays of the year! Yes, that's right, it's time for the Golden Globes, the most meaningless but most hilariously fun awards show there is. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, queens of the modern era and of my heart, are the hosts again this year, after their stellar turn last year when they made the best joke ever about James Cameron. So yeah, with the two of them entertaining us again, the show is sure to be worth watching. But yes, these are the most meaningless awards out there. I think even the People's Choice mean more. That's because the Hollywood Foreign Press is famous for nominating and voting for famous people they want to come to their show and go onstage, regardless of desert. And we have the infamous 'Musical or Comedy' movie category, which means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Some of the 'hilarious' movies qualifying as comedies this year include the traumatic family drama 'August: Osage County' and the depressing-as-shit 'Nebraska', along with the tragically serious 'Inside Llewyn Davis'. See, the movie studios decide what categories they will submit in, so if there's an abundance of quality dramas that year, cunning/lying studio execs will decide their tearjerking poverty-stricken story is quite funny. Liars, the lot of them. Anyway, so that's why this shit means shit, but it's still going to be amazingly fun. Here are my predictions.

Entertainment is a ridiculously big part of my life. I grew up in movie theatres, so in my family you have to see pretty much every movie to make it in conversation. This pop culture knowledge has extended to television, music, and, for me, the theatre. To quote Abed, I like liking things, so there's that.
