The Golden Globes: Like A High School Clique, Only Sadder

An Oscar predictor that's utterly meaningless

Just The Facts

  1. The Golden Globes are widely seen as the Oscars before the Oscars.
  2. This despite the fact that they're only handed out by about seventy "journalists" for "newspapers" nobody's heard of or reads.
  3. Unlike the Oscars, really actually are for sale.

The Golden Globes: The Biggest Scam In Hollywood

Ahhhh, the Golden Globes. Representing the choices of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, they have a long, august history of...fraud, lies, and money-grubbing. Ever wonder what actually goes on? Here's the scoop.

The Golden Globes are given out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. This, of course, means that they're speaking for major international publications, right? Wrong.

They're speaking for the ninety or so members of the association, most of whom live in Southern California. Major publications like Le Monde and the Times of London have tried to get their critics in, only to be soundly rejected.
