Well, it's almost time for the annual overkill of award shows and ceremonies to plague our TV sets for the next couple of months or so, and of course, the Golden Globes are coming up right now, but when I think about it, I find myself asking myself... what exactly is the point of the Golden Globes? I mean let's look at this: we've got the Emmys for television shows and specials, we've got the Oscars for films and movies, we've got the Grammys for music... then the Golden Globes are basically for all of those in one ceremony... so really, I mean, what's the point? If each of those mediums have their own individual awards, do we really need another one to umbrella over ALL of them? Or is it all some sort of a subliminal conspiracy to continue to force us to watch the stars strut their stuff and show off their assets in the kind of wardrobe I'm not even sure Piggy would kill for? I mean, wouldn't it all be much simpler for those involved (like the people being nominated, and the poor souls who have to coordinate and put these shows together) if we either eliminate the Golden Globes altogether since there's already individual awards for individual forms, or eliminate all the others (Emmys, Oscars, Grammys, etc) and just keep the Golden Globes only? And while I think of it... why is it that country music seems to have award shows like every other month out of the year?
