  • POPULARITY NOT AN ISSUE AT GOLDEN GLOBES, WHICH FAVORS LOW-RATED, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED PROGRAMS; 30 ROCK, MAD MEN, HBO MINISERIES RAKE 'EM IN.

    HBO, 30 Rock win Golden Globes

    Say what you will about awards-show season (seriously, comment below!), but each awards ceremony is hard to ignore once the red carpet is rolled out. Tonight saw Hollywood welcome the red carpet of the Golden Globes, the Oscars' jealous little brother. The night is especially important for film (Oscar nominees are announced later this week, and a Globes win could sway Academy voters), but television also has a lot at stake with this ceremony the only major TV awards show until the late-summer Emmys.

    HBO leads Golden Globe nominations
