UPDATE: Golden Globes Couldn’t Get Anyone for Lifetime Achievement Awards, So There Won’t Be Any


I guess someone has to tell Carol Burnett that no one will get the award named for her this year at the Golden Globes.

Maybe call them the Foldin’ Globes. But there will not be Lifetime Achievement Awards at Sunday’s ceremony. No Burnett for TV. No Cecil B. DeMille for movies.

Apparently, since they haven’t mentioned it, no more Mr. or Miss Golden Globes, the honor they used to bestow on the child of a movie star. I guess it would be called the Nepo Baby Award now.

Anyway, what a mess. They couldn’t convince anyone to receive an honor. It also looks like the names I published in the last piece, 17 people including Oprah Winfrey, will be the presenters. It’s not really an A list bunch but it is what it is.

See you Sunday night at 8pm on CBS, not Saturday night as their website still says. The countdown clock now reads 2 days, 4 hours, which would be Saturday, not Sunday.

PS Still unclear if all the nominees are showing up. Or the members of the former Hollywood Foreign Press now Golden Globes committee.
