Oh, Those Golden Globes, Oh, Those Golden Globes …

Awards Season Primer

You’re never quite ready for Awards Season. It’s a dizzying five months of movies. From October to December, two or three new Oscar contenders are released into theaters every week.

TV Shows That Need to Be on DVD

Oscar picks not as hard as usual — 10 movies or not

Making Oscar picks is hard. Kind of like how hard it’s going to be for Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin to make a cohesive, thoughtful joke Sunday night. First, you have to see all the movies.
