Talking Golden Globes and the Fallacy of Jimmy Fallon
Episode 111: The Water Cooler Gang looks at last night’s Golden Globes ceremony, winners and losers.
This week at the Water Cooler, we close the door on last night’s Golden Globes ceremony by taking a look at the film and television winners (Tracee Ellis Ross!!!), losers (sad HBO), and the important speeches we’ll commit to history (Meryl.). We also take a look at what impact the awards have on the upcoming Oscar nominations and the 2017 Emmy season. Finally, we consider the Golden Globes hosting performance of Jimmy Fallon. Was he a breath of fresh air? Or were we longing for the glory days of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler or even Ricky Gervais? But before that, we talk about some of the Oscar-buzzy films we took in over the holiday season, including Passengers (admittedly not “Oscar-buzzy” but Joey and Megan love trash), Jackie, Fences, and a pervasive beating (but, really, we liked it!) of La La Land. Meaning, we literally could not stop talking about it. Or criticizing it.
Anyway, we close with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
