  • Glad to see the sublime The Artist is leading the pack this awards season but how do Globes justify Marilyn and Artist being comedy and Hugo and Descendants being drama?

    I know it's so they can double there chances of predicting Oscar and claim they are an indicator (Streep and Williams might as well be the only actress nominees that turn up to the event) but come on. Descendants is frequently hilarious; Marilyn is light but more dramatic than comedy; Artist the characters play in comedy in it but is - frequently - high drama; Hugo has slapstick antics galore. Fine line on all of these.

    And Cars 2, really? I love Pixar but still
