Golden Globes and awards season inertia
I don't have much to say about the Golden Globe nominations, beyond my acceptance that I'm not going to have much to cheer for come Oscar time in the Best Picture category. Unless The Dark Knight is nominated, it's possible that not one of my top ten films this year will be in the race. This year seems like it has a serious case of inertia. Other than Slumdog Millionaire, these are the same films that have been talked up since the end of last Oscar season. It's like quality doesn't matter.
