  • ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘Parks and Recreation,’ and ‘Modern Family,’ among the nominees for 2013 Golden Globes

     

    Golden GlobesEarlier today, The Golden Globes were announced and like usual, it’s a mixed bag for comedy. The definition of comedy is always so loose when it comes to movies as real legitimate comedies are never well represented in this category. Often opting for dramatic movies with moments of levity in them. While last year all you needed was to be shot in a foreign location to be considered a comedy movie, this year it appears that the trailer for the film needed to have a joke in it and they’re in.

    Compared to movies, the television category does a better job with its selections. Because they, for the most part actually select funny shows. While some usual suspects have returned for another go ’round, there are some new names in the mix for TV honors.
