How did the most dubious of entertainment awards get transformed into the best annual entertainment party?

That's the power of television.

And that's the Golden Globes, unfolding again Sunday night for the 70th annual event. This year's Golden Globes are held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and hosted by comics Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The Golden Globes are the turf of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a lose-knit group of geriatric typists who have turned their sycophantic celebrity worship into the fun tinseltown bash of the year.

Although they've been accused of nominating actors based on (a) their own desire to hang out with A-listers and (b) the actors' willingness to show up at the Golden Globe event, the HFPA is essentially harmless.
