Golden Globes Announcing Nominees LIVE Despite No Show, Report of Blatant Racism Continues Within Group


There will be no red carpet for the Golden Globes this year. But they are announcing nominations this morning at 9AM. Mired in scandals over diversity and finances, the Hollywood Foreign Press persists today in bestowing nominations for awards no one wants.
