I love the Golden Globe Awards.  Think "Oscars-light;" that is, much like the Oscars without all the flash and as Emma Thompson demonstrated, much more alcohol.  Unlike the Academy Awards, which can be a tad stuffy, most of the "celebrities" are enjoying food and cocktails during the 3-hour broadcast.

A couple of things I really like about the Golden Globes, aside from the brilliant Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, is it celebrates television and film equally.  Many times the Golden Globes are a good indicator who will walk away with an Oscar.

According to zap2it.com, last night's award telecast was watched by over 20 million people, up slightly from last year.
