    You obviously put a lot of time into this provocative post, Eugene.

    It's also a way for middle of america people to discover films they wouldn't otherwise. "Oh, Blue Valentine got a few golden globe nominations? Let's check it out."

    Maybe that happens.

    I just think it's a fun evening. I'm really excited for Ricky Gervais to host. They're usually pretty close with Best Picture winners, but we could figure that out from critics' groups. It's just sport for me. Jocks like fantasy football. I like doing a $5 bet on who will win the globes and the oscars.

    They matter in that they get attention, but how can anyone seriously say they're based on merit and not simply driven by star power?
