Steven Spielberg - I don't know if he deserves this, I mean what's he really done in the industry.
Okay, there's my reaction to the Golden Globes, almost. WRITERS AND PRODUCERS END THIS FREAKIN STRIKE. I'm so sick of re-runs and reality television and idiotic game shows.
The list was lifted off the L.A. Times website, they don't endorse my views, etc.
later, Mr. R.
