I'm talking about the Golden Globe Awards, of course, and I call them "The Gold Plated Globes" in this Episode - lucky #13 - of Light On Light Through because of what they missed on television in their nominations for 2006, announced a few days ago. These would be, most outrageously, Kidnapped, Battlestar Galactica, and The Wire. They did get a few things right - that's why I call them goldplated, rather than silverplated, or no-plated - and among the accomplisments well recognized are Michael C. Hall's performance in Dexter, Michael Ealy in Sleeper Cell, Bill Paxton in Big Love - which also received a nom as best show - and of course 24 and Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer. A complete list of the Golden Globe nominations for 2006 - including not only television but movies - can be seen at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association website - they're the folks who bestow these awards.
Other sites I mention on the show - not about the Gold-plateds but science fiction - include:
