The Blog Pool: The Golden Globes

421

UPDATE: We have a tie! Congratulations to Miguel and Joan! We’ll be in touch…

Every year it’s the same ol’ thing. I’m glued to the TV watching Hollywood award shows. The dresses! The tension! The bloopers! 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 started the Spyglass Blog Award Show Pool last year. Check out the abbreviated list of Golden Globe nominees below, then post a comment with your picks for these categories in TV and film.

The reader who correctly guesses the most winners will receive a free one-year subscription to the magazine, so you may want to prepare a speech…
