We looked at our tally sheet after the Golden Globes last night and we didn't do so well again this year. This probably means we need to drink more Campari or Lillet Blanc so we can be on the same page with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. If you look at our post from yesterday, our logic was well-defended on most of all the categories we missed with one or two exceptions, those being the winners from "Glee," which even the most hardcore fans will admit, did not have a strong season.We scored 2 out of 10 or 4 out of 10 if you include our alternates. We did better with the SAG Awards, Oscars, and Emmys last year so we hope to hone our answers even better this year.

What did you think of the winners? Tell us in the comments. Generally we're very happy for all the winners and there were some surprising nominees who deserved the attention: Thomas Jane, "The Walking Dead," and more.

The Golden Globes delivered on the party atmosphere, as promised, and the lobby was a veritable crush of the top talent from around the world. We don't think we stepped on anyone's feet this time, but we bumped into almost everybody that you saw on your TV screens with the exception of the night's host, Ricky Gervais, who was curiously absent for almost the entire 2nd half of the program. The lack of Gervais was conspicuous to the point of people assuming that he was actively being censored by NBC.
