    I am kind of surprised considering the horrible programming that is currently on HBO. Their comedies are really boring and their dramas like Treme and The Newsroom are awful.

    No Game of Thrones!

  • Mumbo

    HBO’s current lineup is about as weak as I can ever remember it being, and easily their best current show, Game of Thrones, gets snubbed. Way to go Golden Globes!

    The second season of Girls “Best Television Series”??

    4 nominations for “Behind the Candelabra”?! You have got to be kidding me. That was horrible. Awful. Michael Douglas made my partner want to throw a shoe at the tv. Matt Damon played… Matt Damon with a lisp and whine. God. I can’t believe that with of all of the television programming over the past year that either one, much less, BOTH of them are considered the best. Ugh.
