It’s That Time Of The Year: Award Season In Hollywood Starting With The Golden Globes the best in TV and Film, Seth Myers will host the 75th Anniversary Of the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 7th on NBC at 8:09 PM.

Among the plethora of awards to be presented during this show, Oprah Winfrey will receive the coveted Cecil B. de Mille Award for outstanding contribution to the world of entertainment.

However, I will be on the lookout for one of my favourite actors, the talented Freddie Highmore, who has been nominated for Best Performance By An Actor In A Television Series – Drama. After garnering positive reviews as an actor via his starring performance in the exceptional series, Bates Motel, Freddie has once again captivated audiences through his riveting performance as a young surgeon with autism in the widely acclaimed ABC series, The Good Doctor. Who doesn’t love this guy? He is a precious jewel in the acting industry.

However, let’s get real here. The real star(s) of this Golden Globes Show will be the #MeToo movement which has gained incredible momentum since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke. And how ironic and, at the same time, sad, that the defamed Harvey Weinstein was instrumental in organizing these awards shows. No words.

Seth Myers will be walking a bit of a fine line tonight addressing this mainly women’s movement because who knows which other predators lurk among the crowd attending the show? Hard to believe that it has taken 75 years to address this horrendous issue which has breathed toxicity and bitterness into an industry which, ultimately, has brought such joy to millions of viewers over the years.

Enjoy the show everyone. Comment away. Go Freddie Go!

  1. Hi Everyone,

    Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

    Gene, I just found a “new to me” artist, I’m sure you have heard of her. Her name is Beth Hart, she is bluesy, amazing! Let me know if you’ve heard of her and/or what you think. Listen to “caught out in the rain”. I stumbled on her by watching ice skating of all things. 😃
