In case anyone is watching ... but no spoilers for those of us getting the delayed version, please!

Hugh Laurie on his "wonderful" House crew: "They smell of newly mown grass."

Sacha Baron Cohen's speech was hysterical.

You totally snuck this thread in!

Fortunately, in this day and age, it's impossible to find out who won earlier.

Animation is also my life.

Meanwhile on "24", we have learned that the Federal government keeps dangerous terrorists at a military installation in Palmdale.

Good to put them in a nice out of the way place.

It was also very cool for Hugh Laurie thank Stephen Fry in his speech.

Jeeves and Wooster!

So nobody shows up at The Jam, and the Commissar won't allow television talk among the people I find most engaging.

This is fun!

I'm here. Just not watching the GGs. Never have, don't expect to, ever. I can't identify with the judges, their being foreign, and all.

But the GGs go up against "24" and I need to keep track of the plot holes and logical impossibilities.

It's part of the charm! And there are terrorists in Granada Hills! I always knew my old neighborhood was suspicious.

Someone please be kind enough to fill me in on what a Golden Globe is. Is the award for movies or tv shows? Just trying to learn what the commoners are doing. Don't worry, the site isn't wire tapped or anything. Who are we rooting for? Who is the JD Drew of the Golden Globes, and who is the Neifi Perez of the Golden Globes. vr, Xei

Both films and TV. They are given out by the mysterious Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

9 The Neifi Perez of the GGs is Pia Zadora.

Better stated as:

Baseball:Neifi Perez=GGs:Pia Zadora

Actually doesn't quite work, but what the heck. Isn't this the only day a Pia reference can be made?

The category Pia Zadora won a Golden Globe in has since been retired.

"New Star of the Year"

So is "Dancing With Stars" up for any awards this year? A friend at work swears by this show. I tried watching a little bit of it, while accidentally flipping to it instead of Blues Clews and just didn't get it. The concept reminded me of a Pro-Am golf event, just with more makeup and nicer clothes.

The reality shows don't fit into the Golden Globes. They have a slot in the Emmys. But the Emmys have roughly 10,000 different categories.

Was "The Wire" eligible for the best drama Golden Globe? I always find it amazing at how little attention that show gets at award times.

How did Grey's Anatomy beat 24 for best drama? Must be a bunch of chicks on the panel that picks the winners.

16 I believe the wire wasn't up for anything. A true shame.

I recently started re-watching season 1 and it is like falling in love all over again.

10 Allowing a bunch of members of the press to bestow upon your industry a series of prestigious awards - what a weird concept!

Has there ever been a drama actually aiming at the chick audience? Little House on the Prairie was set in a farming region....

I had a detailed reply typed out until I got the joke ...

21 Now that is a high compliment indeed.

18 - While I'm not shocked that either was nominated, I'd be outraged by a victory for either if I gave a crap about the Golden Globes. But awards shows are usually about rewarding competence and mediocrity, so I don't get worked up about it.
