Are the Golden Globes an awards milestone that sometimes suggests where the season might be going? A genuine opportunity to recognize a fresher batch of shows and films than sometimes dominate the Emmys and Oscars? A boost that has legitimately helped some good but under-the-radar projects raise their profiles? A special chance to acknowledge talent that doesn't get recognized enough? Or are they the kickoff to a process that starts with a small group of journalists with widely varying credentials, continues through nominations that are often called “weird” because they are weird, and ends with everyone drunk and suspicious that it's harder to get a Globe if you're unlikely to show up? The nominations came out Thursday morning, and yes, they were a little weird.
