The Golden Globe 2020

The 77th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in television and film, were presented Sunday. I love films.

This year, like the last five, a soecial Golden Globe Award should have gone to the organizers hiring the funniest man on Earth, Ricky Gervais as the host of the show. His opening monologue was nastier and funnier than ever before.
