Get ready for Sunday night's Golden Globes (and our coverage)

Globes_lMy excitement level for the Golden Globes increased exponentially just now when I read that Kathy Griffin will be providing commentary on NBC’s Matt Lauer-hosted Dateline special, Going for the Gold, Sunday (7 p.m. ET). I imagine Michael Slezak’s and Annie Barrett’s anticipation is peaking, too, if they’ve heard that NBC’s "FootballNight in America" team will be on hand to predict the winners. Why would that delight our duo? They’ll be live-blogging the two-hour "pre-show," as well as the press conference that announces the actual trophy takers at 9 p.m. ET.

Here’s what else EW.com’s got cookin':
• In addition to PopWatch’s running commentary, our Hollywood Insider blog will have Lynette Rice on the scene to report on any picketing anything interesting.
• During the press conference, we’ll post a running tally of the winners.
• Monday morning, we’ll have Slezak’s Fantasy Globes, a gallery of moments that only happened in his mind. (Naturally, he’s already requested a photo of Vanessa Williams.)
• And because we do take this entertainment business seriously, sometimes, we’ll have real morning-after analysis by EW’s Ken Tucker and Dave Karger.

So enjoy the Globes, as much as you can. And let us know who you’re pullin’ for below.

    You had up until Kathy Griffin. NO THANKS! How does she continue to get work? Is NBC aware that people who might otherwise watch won’t just because of their disdain for Kathy Griffin?
    Is this whole post one big joke? The “Football Night in America” schmucks? WTF?

    I agree with you T-Rex, although I wasn’t going to watch it anyway. Why televise it when nobody will be there. They should just have an hour show where they announce the winners, asnd that’s it. No pre-show. No going to the parties (if there are any). I’ll just wait until later that night, look online to see who won, then hope that the strike will be over soon so the Academy Awards can go on.

    Sorry for the double post.

    I don’t know how anyone can possibly be excited about it. When the winners are announced will there be crickets chirping?
    I also don’t find Kathy Griffin all that funny. She tries too hard and comes off obnoxious.

    I always enjoy the red carpet festivities better than the actual awards ceremony. This should be interesting.

    I had planned on just reading who won on Monday’s ew.com. However, now that I know kathy griffin will be involved in some way, I will be sure to catch it on tv. She is freakin’ hilarious!

    Why didn’t they just postpone the event until the end of the strike? They also could re-release most of the nominated films later and delay the DVD releases accordingly.

    i’m boycotting the “telecast” because no one will be there. i’ll check the results here on monday, scr$w the networks, i won’t be watching them at all.

    As long as Daniel Day-Lewis takes home the statue for There Will Be Blood, I may momentarily forget that the WGA and the AMPTP have ruined one of my favorite nights of the year. They’d better not touch the Oscars…

  • mscisluv

    I just feel bad for the nominees (and those that win)…they won’t get the opportunity to really celebrate their accomplishments, to make memorable acceptance speeches, etc. It’s disappointing that they get screwed over.

    Let’s see, this unimportant, thrown-together, non-event is going up against the last quarter of the Cowboys-Giants playoff game and 60 Minutes in the first hour, and if they try to stretch this thing into the 8-9 PM slot, they are fighting Extreme Makeover, Amazing Race and the premiere of the Sarah Conner/Terminator series. What a joke. Check the ratings on Monday. The Food Channel will have more viewers.
