Golden Globes: The Blog Pool

331

Every year I find myself glued to the television watching Hollywood award shows. The dresses! The spirit of competition! The gaffes! And sure enough, when the credits roll (inevitably cutting some awkward group speech short) I find myself feeling a little empty handed.

That’s why I’m starting the Spyglass Blog Award Show Pool. Check out the abbreviated list of Golden Globe nominees below, then post a comment with your picks for these fifteen categories in TV and film. The reader who correctly guesses the most winners will receive a free one-year subscription to the magazine. I’m ineligible to win myself, but you can thank me in your speech.

The Golden Globes will air Sunday, January 17 on NBC.
