Golden Globes: Bad Start, Worse Finish

The 81st Annual Golden Globes Awards got off to a bad start and finished in a bad place. However, there were a few bright spots along the way.

Since the “journalists” behind the Golden Globes saw fit to nominate a bunch of politically correct movies and television programs with explicit, and even pornographic, sex and nudity, the emcee for the evening, standup comic Jo Koy, resorted to doing a few lewd jokes and a joke about the evils of white people. The rest of his monologue turned out to be rather flat.

The Golden Globes has many more awards than the Academy Awards, partly because it includes awards for movies and television. It also separates its movies awards into some awards for dramas versus comedies and musicals.

The awards had a few deserving winners, such as Paul Giamatti and Da’Vine Joy Randolph for the comedy HOLDOVERS. However, as usual for these awards shows in recent years, the best, most family-friendly, and most uplifting movies were in the Best Animated Movie category.

Sadly, the worst (and most lurid) movie of the year, POOR THINGS, won for Best Comedy or Musical. Also, Writer/Director Christopher Nolan’s hagiography of leftist nuclear scientist Robert Oppenheimer won for Best Drama.

Regarding the Golden Globe television nominees, none of them include any of the more positive, most popular TV programs, such as NCIS, BLUE BLOODS and YOUNG SHELDON.

Like many American institutions, the mass media of entertainment today seems inundated by godless, secular, pagan, hedonistic, solipsistic ideologues.
