As for the Golden Globes… I thought I watched a lot of movies. Watched a lot of TV. Apparently not. I didn’t even know most of the shows that were up for awards. At least I recognized the actors. Mostly.
I remember when television series from cable networks (e.g. HBO & Showtime) would appear as award winners on the Emmys or Golden Globes and people would say they weren’t really television shows. At least they were ON the television. Netflix and Hulu and Amazon and whatever are not ON television. They’re on the internet. Maybe they should have a separate division for them: Internet Series. If the Golden Globes are going to differentiate between a “television” movie and a “theatre” movie, why not differentiate between an internet series and a television series? Better yet, separate all the paid channels/services together from the free-based (or commercial-based) ones. The commercial-based category has a big disadvantage to the internet and cable when it comes to content. Just saying…
Yesterday was a good day sports-wise. Steelers won (YAY!). Penguins won (YAY!). My daughter was at the Penguins game (yeah, a little jealous, but then they probably would have lost if I attended). It was originally scheduled for 1pm, but because the Steelers were playing, it was moved to 5pm. She got home super late (or rather, super early this morning), because she had a 4-5 hour drive home via Cleveland (dropped off her friend) and had to be at work this morning. Zzzzzz.
I set up my writing goals for the week (on my to-do list). But since I got such a late start this morning (7:30! I never get up that late!), and came home from the fitness center later than usual (9:30!), I hope I’m able to complete some of the stuff I had planned on accomplishing today. And since writing a post wasn’t one of those items… Oh well, I did create the list for items to accomplish this WEEK. I just hoped to have certain stuff done today.
So… Did you watch the award show? Do you want to see “La La Land” now? I’m thinking I do. Daughter saw it over the weekend. I’ll have to ask her how it was.
Happy Monday! And if it’s not happy, kick its butt! J
