    Here’s a newsworthy note for the next round-up.. if it is news, that is (news to me, anyway): In a Variety article yesterday it’s said that the Golden Globes are going to be aired live in all time zones this time around:

    “They will start the shake-up by going with a nationwide live feed at 5 p.m. PST, when the show actually begins at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, rather than a delay to 9 p.m. PST.”

    Good news for those in the west, certainly!

    That was actually announced long ago. Or at least I’ve known about it forever and didn’t think twice about it. About time, regardless.
