As much as we love the Oscars, when it comes to awards season, nobody does it better than the Golden Globes. It's the one time of year when the stars of both movies and television get all dressed up to hand out a few awards and throw back a few drinks.
Think about it: Is there a better combination than awards and alcohol? Not that we're proponents of excessive drinking, but if there's one thing we love most about the Globes, it's the way it feels more like a party than a stiff, four-hour-long awards show. (Sorry, Oscars.) Where else can you watch Isaac Mizrahi inappropriately touch Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet, or Renee Zellweger win an award while she's still in the bathroom? It's the best party in showbusiness. (Relive more memorable Golden Globes moments here.)
It's also the most unpredictable. Because it's the first major awards show of the year, nobody really knows what's going to happen, which often leads to a number of surprise upsets. Remember when Natalie Portman won in 2004? Or James Franco in 2002? The Golden Globes is about as predictable as the jokes from host Ricky Gervais.
