It's meaningless awards' season once again

Alright, maybe that's a tad unfair. Awards like the Golden Globes and the Oscars are important to those who are nominated and those who win. But, to a movie fan, does it really matter? Hmmm?. I think not.

It's especially meaningless to fans of Basement cinema as genre pictures and low-budget films often go unnoticed. But, to our credit we loved The Hurt Locker before the Academy did.

Now that the preamble is out of the way, the 68th Golden Globes were announced earlier to day by Josh Duhamel, Katie Holmes and Blair Underwood.We've included the full list for you below. Shawn and I have watched hardly any of the nominated pictures, so we aren't in a position to comment. But I'm sure someone out there cares!
