Before watching this doco, I did not know who or what made up the voting for the Golden Globes. I just assumed it was a bunch of movie people who knew what the hell they were talking about. After watching this clearly that perception was wrong, or at least disjointed.

Vikram Jayanti's doco is a fascinating look into the truth about the Golden Globes and what they are really about. The awards seem so revered today yet many do not question why, they just go with the flow like I did. The interviews with producers and journalists do provide some interesting insights, and stories (like Pia Zadora's win for 'Butterfly') are humorous. It might not be as interesting to those who already know the secret but for newcomers its a fascinating look into the Hollywood hype machine.

In the whole scheme of things does Hollywood's dirty secret really matter? Nope. Not really. There are far more important issues to worry about in the world than some over-hyped awards show. Sure, seeing a film ad in the paper stating that so-and-so movie won 3 Golden Globes might annoy slightly but at least after viewing this doco you are a little more educated on the matter.

Besides, next time you are caught watching the fiasco on TV, you can just point and laugh at the A-Grade celebrities who accept their shiny little toy with glee and declare how much the useless golden orb on a stick means to them. Its moments like that which show if an actor really has talent!
