After three years of operating beneath the shit-eating grin of Ricky Gervais, the Golden Globes turn 70 with former Weekend Update anchors/real-life BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler dishing out the gimlet-eyed jokes about the gimlet-filled guests of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Entering the ceremony, Lincoln leads the film pack with seven chances to take home a statuette (while Nicole Kidman runs away with “most nominations for peeing on Zac Efron”); on the television side, Homeland’s a favorite in drama categories, while Modern Family has fewer chances to steal wins from more deserving shows than it usually does at the Emmys. Game Change is the frontrunner in the TV-movie/miniseries categories, picking up more nominations than Hemingway & Gellhorn due to the simple, unavoidable fact that Nicole Kidman doesn’t urinate on Clive Owen in the latter film.
Join us here at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, January 13 to comment (in real time!) on all the pickled celebrities, undeserving nominees, and (fingers crossed) killer Fey-Poehler zingers of the 70th Annual Golden Globes.
