The Golden Globe Picks for 2010
January 15, 2011
Predicting the future is impossible andfolly for anyone with an ego, whether itis the direction of stocks and theeconomy or the winners of awards. So,
let’s give it a try because it’s too much
damn fun!The Golden Globes are the most eclecticof awards because the judges are so strange. Why? They
are foreign and they are reporters…who can figure these
people out?From their website, here is the description of who the judges are and how they choose their winners:
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is a non
-profit organization, themembers of which are international journalists based in Southern California. The HFPAhas about 90 members who disseminate information about movies and television to theworld through their various publications throughout the world. HFPA members attendmore than 300 interviews and countless movie and television screenings throughouteach year.
You can see they don
t write about entertainment but
s good to see they do attendscreenings though, as that
s probably a good thing.You can
tell they’re a bit quirky by their email address
