Almost time to tweet about the Golden Globes

Setting up for the Golden Globes ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Wilshire Boulevard.

It’s a gorgeous day in LA, but for me a cozy spot on the sofa is the best vantage point for taking in the Golden Globes. Join me on Twitter as I scour the red carpet for nods to noir and retro charm. I think “Social Network” is a shoo-in for best pic, but I’m not so sure about other categories.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association presents the awards; the first ceremony was held in January 1944 at Twentieth Century Fox in LA.
