On this week's show, we touch on the Oscar nominations that were and were not, as well as the surprisingly good Globes telecast.
Tonight, we'll be live-blogging the Golden Globes and hoping for great things from hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
The director of Zero Dark Thirty is perhaps the biggest non-nomination to emerge from this morning's announcements, but a fantasy about life in the bayou and a French love story had strong showings.
A night of mostly expected winners and lackluster production made for a boring Emmys telecast.
