    The 77th Golden Globe Awards are quickly approaching. Ricky Gervais is set to host the ceremony on January 5th (8pm to 11pm ET), at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas. We now have the full list of nominations which gives us somewhat of an idea as to who this year's winners will be.

    In the film category, it looks like Netflix's 'Marriage Story' is leading the pack at 6 nominations, followed closely by 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico' and Netflix's 'The Irishmen' with 5 nominations.

    Of these three films, I hope 'Once upon a time' and 'The Irishmen' sweep their awards. Both of those films were absolutely incredible and unique in today's film world. Not only do Tarantino and Scorsese deserve the praise for creating them, but the cast of each film were stellar to say the absolute least. For me, 'Marriage Story' was good, but not that good. The acting from Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson was amazing, but the film itself was dull and pretty lackluster.

    The top spots for TV shows holding four nominations a piece are 'Chernobyl', 'Unbelievable' and 'The Crown'. Followed by 'Barry', 'Big Little Lies', 'Fleabag', 'Fosse/Verdon', 'The Morning Show' and 'Succession', all of which hold three nominations.

    Now I can't speak to a couple of those shows, but I can say that 'Barry' and 'Chernobyl' deserve every award possible. 'Chernobyl' was phenomenal and Bill Hader's 'Barry' continues to blow me away.

Anyways I decided to give this one a go because of the hype. And I have to say this show 2 episodes in is great. Everything about it is so well done and feels like an instant classic. I love the cinematography and art direction, the score, the writing, just the whole package. I'm all in with this show even without being a Star Wars fan.

    I think that's one of the big pros of the show. You don't really have to be a big Star Wars fan to enjoy it. It's got sort of a standalone sci-fi western feel to it that makes it unique beyond the universe.

    'The Mandalorian' is finally here! Disney+ launched with one of the most anticipated new shows in quite a long time. The new addition to the the Star Wars universe shows us the story of a bounty hunter traversing dangerous worlds hunting down criminals.

    Spoilers Ahead**

    That's your only warning if you haven't seen episode two.

    Like most others, I had originally thought that synopsis was about the extent of the show, but now that I've seen Ep.2, I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. The ending of Ep.1 wasn't some sort of hyped up easter egg for us 'Star Wars' fans. It really looks like baby Yoda (we can all assume) is going to be a running theme throughout the show, if not the main theme. I had my doubts that it was actually Yoda up until the moment he lifted a monstrous rhino off the ground. That was an incredible scene that sealed the deal for me. If the show continues with moments like that, I'm all in.

    I'm really happy so far with the direction Jon Favreau is taking the show. It walks and talks like Star Wars, though it just feels different in a refreshing way. I've been pretty disappointed with the movies of the past few years. The only one that stood out to me as a great movie was 'Rouge One: A Star Wars Story'. Other than that, they've been all hype and produced sub-par material. This one feels fresh and seems to be tapping into that enormous universe we all know and love.

    Same here. I really, really hope that Stapleton does a song by himself. That guy has what is probably the best voice of anyone that is in that building. It's amazing what he can do. And for it to be clouded with all those other singers is going to be pretty disappointing.

    The 52nd Country Music Association Awards is just about here, so now is the time to get excited about the performances. And even though the CMA's aren't quite as huge as some other awards, they always seem to execute some really awesome shows.

    Hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the show will kick off with “What Makes You Country,” by two-time 'Entertainer of The Year' nominee, Luke Bryan. Afterwards, the rest of the awards will be scattered with collaborations from a slew of other stars.

    So far we have:

    Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert - 'Drowns the Whiskey'

    Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne - 'Burning Man'

    Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Mavis Staples, Florida Georgia Line with Bebe Rexha - 'Meant to Be'

    Though we do not know what they will be singing just yet, other performers include:

    Keith Urban

    Kenny Chesney

    Kacey Musgraves

    Thomas Rhett

    Luke Combs

    Midland

    Brett Young

    Kelsea Ballerini

    Dan + Shay

    Old Dominion

    Pistol Annies.

    Though I have to mention one in particular. Garth Brooks will be performing a new song this year! That's probably going to be amazing. Brooks has got to be the king of country music shows, and I'm super excited to see what he's got in store for us.

    The show kicks off on 11/14 at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.

    I can't find the video. Being a corporation like it is, I bet that they had it all pulled.

    That's awesome of her to do. Took a ton of heart to stand on that specific stage and say those words. I'm sure Trump still has some sort of pull throughout the operation, so hopefully she doesn't get shunned for it.

    Everyone else outside of the pageant is going to look at her like a hero.

    The Royal Wedding is usually crammed with tons of festivities and interesting pieces, but something turned up this years that is just super cool. LEGO actually built a new creation at Legoland Windsor Resort. The set is incredibly detailed, as most of what they build for events like this are, but this one takes it to a whole new level.

    Special Lego characters for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stand outside a whopping 39,960 brick Windsor Castle. The set is in Legoland's Miniland attraction and has a crowd of 500 gathered around cheering for the newlyweds. The set took 11 creators longer than a month to build, combining a total of 752 hours. There are now a total of 80 million Lego bricks used at Legoland Windsor.

    I've never understood it either. And believe it or not.... The wedding will also be screened in nearly 200 theaters in the U.S.. It will be titled as 'Harry & Meghan: The Royal Wedding', and will show on May 19th.

    It didn't come as much of a surprise when the Harvey Weinstein stories broke. It's no question at this point that people knew what was going on for years, but no one wanted to speak out on it. Weinstein ruled Hollywood. And when you're the ruler of a kingdom, it doesn't matter what anyone says about you. What matters is that they either respect, or unfortunately in this case, fear you. After 84 women came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein, both Hollywood and the rest of the world exploded with people finally telling their own stories.

    And now fast forward to the present day and what we have is the "#MeToo" movement via social media. I won't get into it too much, but it's basically a way to speak out about your own stories on the topics of sexual harassment. Some say this is a bad way to go about it. Some say this is the only way to go about it. And some say "if you have a story go to the police, not the media". And I suppose a little bit of each view is correct. Either way, these stories need to be heard and people need to be held accountable for their actions. Help should always be there for any person in need.

    But as with any movement, especially one filtered through social media, there are a few that use it as an opportunity to attack people instead of progress what the movement is supposed to represent. Now, I will not say my opinion on who is right or wrong, as that is not for civilians (without any proof) to decide. But what I will say is that this country has due process. When you plaster someones name on social media with these types of allegations, true or not, it can ultimately ruin their lives. Unfortunately, some see this as an opportunity to do just that.

    So what's your opinion on the movement? Do you think it should be done via social media? I don't really see another way that hasn't already failed victims for years. It truly is a great outlet. But how can the story be told without ruining the person's life before due process has been upheld?

    Here is a perfect example of what I'm referring to. This was done beautifully.
