So, the Golden Globes, the first of billions of entertainment awards shows taking place in 2010, air this Sunday night. In Los Angeles, this ceremony is more important than the most recent presidential inauguration. I just received an email from a company offering me a fake tan via a home mobile service if I am attending the Golden Globes this weekend and need to look golden. Um, no thank you. I live in Los Angeles. I could step outside my door and get a tan from...the sun.

What boggles my mind about the Golden Globes is that 'Nine' earned five nominations. I am not sure how this happened. Were there not enough good films released over the past year? Does a star-studded cast matter more than the film itself? Is there something shady going on? Payola?
