The 72nd Golden Globe Awards Nominations

golden-globesYes we again celebrate another occasion of Hollywood saluting itself on a job well done. This time the accolades are being spewed forward by the Hollywood foreign press.  The nominations for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards were announced really really bright and early this morning at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Although I was half asleep during this pre-dawn ceremony in self promostion. I was live or almost in Beverly Hills, and then the HFPA president Mr. Theo Kingma came in and introduced Kate Beckinsale, two-time Golden Globe Award-nominee Peter Krause, Paula Patton, and Golden Globe-winner and five-time nominee the very sexy Jeremy Piven to do the honors. As predicted the 72nd Annual Golden Globe® Awards, will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The extravaganza of golden idol worship will air on Sunday, January 11, 2015, LIVE coast-to-coast on NBC from 5:00-8:00 p.m. (PST)/8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST).

I love this season.
