POPCORN & THE BOX: And the Nominees Are...

The Golden Globes are the only other awards show that "really matters" (besides the Oscars of course). This morning the nominees were announced including many names and projects familiar to The Brain Drain. For more, visit Variety.

I will say that oddly the most exciting category for me this year is Supporting Actor (for TV) that has Jeremy Piven's Ari and William Shatner's Denny Crane facing off against each other. The upside to a Shatner win is watching him stand on stage yelling "Denny Crane!". Earlier this year I figured Piven's Entourage performance unsurmountable, that was until I got to watch more of Denny Crane! Too bad their can't be a tie... can there?

I have taken the liberty of adding my two cents where I feel a project or person was overlooked. I have yet to see Closer, The Aviator, Sideways, Kinsey, and Million Dollar Baby. Look for my personal picks to come sometime in January.
