This year marks the 76th awarding of the Golden Globes, honoring the best in film and television as determined by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

I have devoted considerable energies to Academy Awards previews over the past decade, but the Golden Globes haven’t really inspired the same level of attention. Still, while the Globes might not have the same gravitas as the Oscars, they still warrant at least a little attention.

(Note: While the Golden Globes recognize television as well as film, my focus is on the cinematic side of things. So while I made picks in all categories, I only went in depth on the cinematic side of things.)

Let’s go to the Globes.

The Hunger Games' tops MTV Movie Awards

LOS ANGELES - The fan votes - not just the odds - were in 'The Hunger Games' favor at the MTV Movie Awards.

The dystopian survival saga escaped from Sunday's 21st annual extravaganza with the most golden popcorn-shaped trophies, including best fight for the film's final three-way battle and best on-screen transformation for Elizabeth Banks' over-the-top futuristic makeover. 'Hunger Games' stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson were also honored for best female and male performances.

'I've wanted to hold a golden popcorn since I was 4 years old,' beamed Hutcherson.

With four wins out of eight nominations, 'Hunger Games' didn't totally decimate the competition. 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' won prizes for best cast and best hero, while 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' won for movie of the year, and 'Twilight' stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson locked the best kiss trophy for the fourth straight year.
