1) Vera Farmiga has officially been bumped to supporting actress. Good news for her, could we see both her and Kendrick get in? Or is it one and done? We'll have to see, but I think this move really boosts her chances.
2) Ricky Gervais is hosting the Golden Globes! It's many many moons (long before I even knew what the Globes were) since they've had a host, and what a better choice than Ricky Gervais. He's quirky, hilarious, and hip, something all awards shows need to try to master a little bit better. I can now say that I can't wait till the Golden Globes!
