Golden Globes Winners… And Losers

There has been plenty of anticipation and speculation surrounding the Golden Globes this year. Sure, most of that was concerned with how hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would fare after the Gervais years – they killed it btw – but there was also a fair amount of interest in the actual awards themselves. Well, for those nominated at least.  

Some things we’ve learned from the Golden Globes so far:

Kevin Costner still exists.

Christoph Waltz is on one hell of a hot streak. 

Lincoln must be as boring as the La Lakers said it was.

Ben Affleck’s Best Director nomination snub at the Oscars was pretty dumb.

Jodie Foster is one hell of a public speaker!

Glenn Close knows how to party.
