The first major award show of the season takes place tonight at the 71st annual Golden Globes Awards, setting up plenty of interesting showdowns. The category for best drama film, for example, pits a ship's captain, an enslaved musician, an Irish mother, a stranded astronaut and a Formula 1 racer against one another. Best musical or comedy, meanwhile, is a throwdown between a a 1970s con artist, a man in love with his digital assistant, a hard-luck folk musician, a cantankerous old coot and a drug-addled corporate thief.

The Golden Globes were the buzz of social media, with the comedic barbs from hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler helping to propel the awards show to the top of the Twitter TV charts.

I do not understand all the fuss about award shows, but the Golden Globes are the worst ("All's Fair in 'Love' and War," by Robert W. Welkos and Susan King, Jan. 25). Millions of dollars are spent presenting, receiving and televising these awards. Then more money is spent advertising the winners. The awards are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., an association of 82 members. Eighty-two! Breaking that down to a category with five nominees, an award could be "won" with 17(!

In a wide open awards year, a quirky, ironic film helmed by a British theater director and written by a newcomer garnered the most nods Monday when the 57th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced in Beverly Hills.

Drum roll, klieg lights and appropriately melodramatic music, please. Cue announcer: "Live from Beverly Hills, it's the 43rd annual Golden Globes post-game show!" Cue host: Thanks for tuning in. As you may know, for years now the Golden Globes, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., have been the ugly ducklings of the annual awards derby that culminates in March with Oscar night.

Here's a modest proposal for the Golden Globe Awards telecast Sunday night: Make the presenters wear tragic masks when reading the nominations in the drama categories and comic masks when reading the nominations in the musical/comedy categories. That way we'll have a better chance of keeping the knuckleheaded division straight this year. How else are we to remember that "Inside Llewyn Davis," a somewhat downbeat picaresque adventure from the Coen brothers, is competing as a comedy, while "Philomena," a real-life morality tale masquerading as a chuckling odd couple comedy, is contending as a drama?

Guggenheim Partners is looking to make a big impression in Hollywood. The financial services firm, which in March spent more than $2 billion on the Los Angeles Dodgers, has agreed to acquire Dick Clark Productions for $370 million, people close to the deal said. Spending almost $2.5 billion in less than six months might be enough for some investors, but Guggenheim's appetite for entertainment assets is still ravenous. "We would characterize this as the beginning of the beginning," Guggenheim Partners President Todd Boehly said.

With the two sides at loggerheads, a federal judge now must determine who controls the lucrative television rights to the Golden Globes Awards show. U.S. District Court Judge A. Howard Matz on Friday declared the end of the high-stakes, three-week trial that pitted the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which owns the Golden Globes, against Dick Clark Productions, which has produced the annual extravaganza for nearly 30 years. A decision in the case isn't expected for weeks. "It's going to take some time before I can get back to this," Matz told the packed courtroom in downtown Los Angeles.
