It’s the Globes!

This past week has been pretty awesome for film geeks like you and me: Oscar nominations, the Critics Choice Awards and tonight the Golden Globes, the second best award show, even when it sometimes recognizes the worst in film from the year before (The Tourist, anyone?)

I’m a fan of many of the presenters, so I’m looking forward to seeing them make an appearance but, mostly, I’m psyched to see two of my favorite people ever, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, host the whole thing. I’m sure they’ll do a fantastic job; they’re hilarious.
