Right. Golden Globes whatever. Did you see the ass-whupping that the Packers took from the frigging New York Giants last evening? Sick. This whole weekend was sick. Only one of my picks won, and that was Ravens over Texans, not that anyone was really surprised by that. AND MY SAINTS LOST. To the 49ers. Football, I am so disappointed in you today. You should have been so, so much better. For me.

Anyway, you’re probably here to hear about the Golden Globe Awards, not listen to me malign football and certain teams’ roughhousing tendencies that result in undeserved wins, 49ers poor Pierre Thomas.

Here’s the winners. They’re a lot less surprising than those who won in OTHER things this past weekend.

  • Uh, I think Kelly MacDonald was nominated for Boardwalk Empire. But I know it’s hard to keep it straight, all those British-y, Scottish-y accented people. And now here she is in an American series, taken our JERBS.
    I’m stoked Laura Dern won. I love that Enlightened show, and she tears it up.

  • Completely stupid that the Dinklage was in the same category as Eric Stonestreet. The supporting actors should have been divided into comedy and drama categories just like the main actors. Who arranges this shite?
