Or as Finke herself puts it, “Live-Snarking.” Starting at 5 pm, she’ll be verbally bitch-slapping the Golden Globes in real time on her Deadline Hollywood blog.
Finke isn’t exactly a fan of the Globes, as she notes on her blog:
This is a completely meaningless awards show from a scandal-riddled organization on a network desperate for ratings. Not only have journalists like myself for years been attacking the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its exclusionary membership policies and too-cosy relationship with studios and networks, but an Oscar-winning documentary director (Vikram Jayanti in his 2004 film The Golden Globes: Hollywood’s Dirty Little Secret) has called the group a bunch of “freeloaders” who know more about hors d’oeuvres than auteurs and select winners based on “who kisses butt best”.
This oughta be good…
