    The Playlist's 2011 Golden Globes Live Blog

    Liveblog Commentary And Winners As They're Announced, Let's Do This.We can't believe it's here already. With a host of critics awards and guild nominees under our belts, tonight we get the first taste of sweet, frothy, award show goodness, the 2011 Golden Globes. There will be red carpet mayhem, there will be hotly debated fashion statements, there will be wildly incompetent TV presenters making the toast of Hollywood supremely uncomfortable. But, most importantly, we get to take the first temperature for Oscar season. We've always said the Globes are relatively meaningless, since the Hollywood Foreign Press tends to award mainstream fluff, o...

    Cheer Up Michel Gondry Fans, 'The Green Hornet' May Be Seth Rogen's Fault

    Gondry Didn't Have Final Cut, Or Full Authority, But Says He "Accepted" This Early On“The Green Hornet” may have topped the box office this weekend, bringing in a respectable $34 million but its critical reception was mixed at best.

But that isn't enough for the film, which set the studio back somewhere between $90 (before reshoots?) and $140 million (after?). As such, simply maki...
