New (brief) clip from "Big Little Lies" and reaction to the Globes

Last night during the Golden Globes, HBO revealed a trailer for many of its upcoming shows this winter/spring. Included in that was a very brief clip of Meryl and the rest of the cast. Start at 0:26 if you want to bypass some of the other stuff.

Still no definitive date on when we can expect the second season to be premiered.

Now to the Globes. Overall fairly underwhelming as far as the ceremony went. Andy Sandberg and Sandra Oh were fine, not super funny.  I REALLY miss Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. 

Probably the biggest shocks were Bohemian Rhapsody winning Best-Picture-Drama and Rami Malek winning for his role in the film as Freddie Mercury. I haven't seen it yet, but it hasn't done super well with critics, despite it's enormous box office performance. I figured Bradley Cooper had the upper hand here, both for director and picture.

I was thrilled that Glenn Close took the trophy for Lead Actress in a Drama (The Wife). At this point, as Olivia Colman won in Comedy for The Favourite (incidentally over Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns), I think this is sort of down to a two-person race. Had Lady Gaga won for A Star is Born, I think she'd still stand a chance for the Oscar. SAG will be a big night for the Lead Actress category. I really like Olivia Colman, but am pulling for Close.

BAFTA nominations will be announced Wednesday.
