Holiday weekend box office- what did you see?

"Clemency and 1917 today...two of the year's best. " -Me

"I caught up on two best picture nominees I hadn't seen, Joker and 1917. Joker was two hours of my life I'll never get back." -Jules

"I caught up, belatedly, with A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Was teary-eyed for the entire second half. I'm surprised more people weren't impressed." -ER

Poker with Molly & Wrestling with Brie -- onward to the Globes!

by Nathaniel R

A silly and serious Globes preamble.We won't be live-blogging the Globes tonight though we'll do as much as possible tomorrow for a recap so until then one serious thought and two silly ones.We're heading into an unusual season when Hollywood is in a very serious mood due to the sexual harassment scandals.Awards shows aren't all that well-equipped to be serious as their format is inherently celebratory and "fun".部分来自实践的喜剧演员s as hosts but it's there in the basic DNA since each awards night is a long and glitzy 'you get a prize and you get a prize and you get a prize' parade of the rich and beautiful and famous.In times when Hollywood curtails the glamour to address a serious crisis (like a new war for example or the lack of gender parity in Hollywood) it can come across as merely glum.It's as if the entertainment industry has crises of identity whenever they think people don't want escapist diversions but direct addresses to their ills.

Our theory is that people actually want both (which is why we try to balance the fun and the serious here in film conversations) and the celebrities that are best equipped to actually deal with tonight's mood are probably the celebrities who are inherently "fun" but can also turn deadly serious without feeling like a buzzkill.Or, in other words: Meryl Streep.Rescue us Meryl.

One area we know will be atypical (at least) is the red carpet...
