A short blog today, folks, just so I can say a few quick things:
First, Moata "Blog Idle" Tamaira and I will be live-blogging from midday, covering the Golden Globes 2013. Here's the link to the live-blog - we'll be chatting through the red carpet coverage, on E! from Midday, and the awards ceremony itself, on Vibe from 2pm.
The ceremony is being hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and promises to be a good laugh. The Golden Globes are an early indicator of which way Oscar voters might go, but they're also the most informal of the major award ceremonies, with plenty to enjoy from the audience, the winners and speeches, and (of course) the hosts. Make sure you join us and get involved!
