Many watched the Golden Globes last night.
I did (sorry about all the lame tweets).
Michael Starr of the New York Post wasn’t a fan of it all.
He wrote this article:
Sunday night’s Golden Globes were an exercise in show-biz futility.
So what else is new?
If anyone thought the Hollywood Foreign Press Association would shake things up in terms of rewarding fresh faces in television, fuggedaboutit. But I will say this: at least the Golden Globes lived up to its hard-earned reputation as a joke-of-an-awards show never to be taken seriously.
There were few surprises Sunday night, save for Rachel Bloom (good), “Mozart in the Jungle” (two awards, both bad), “Mr. Robot” (nice) and Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”) overcoming her unjust Emmys snub to win as Best Dramatic Actress.
Bloom was an unexpected pick for her little-watched CW series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” Her victory recalled fellow CW stablemate Gina Rodriguez, who came out of nowhere in 2014 to win a Golden Globe for “Jane the Virgin.” Good for her and for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” which, despite its win, probably won’t get much of a ratings or pop-culture bump. (“Jane the Virgin” didn’t benefit from its victory in terms of viewers and its buzziness has been reduced to a whisper.)
As for Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle”: WTF? Best Comedy Series? Best Comedy Actor for star Garcia Gael Bernal? This show was so boring I couldn’t get past four episodes last season. I did write in The Post last Friday that I was haunted by the specter of Bernal somehow winning a Golden Globe, even though I picked Jeffrey Tambor, last year’s winner, to repeat Sunday night. So at least I was right about something. And, let’s face it, Bernal is not — I repeat, is not — funny. Perhaps Amazon did a nice job schmoozing the HFPA voters (all 80-something of them). I can’t figure out any other reason for rewarding “Mozart in the Jungle” with anything.
