This week's question: 

I know this may seem like bragging, but, I'm watching the Golden Globes and know I should be up there.  Do you have any comment?


This week's Answer: 

"Golden Globe Trotter"

G.G., I understand about the strong desire to be at the Golden Globes.  It's a wonderful celebration of the television and film industries.  Just to clarify, when you say "up there," are you referring to being up in the bleachers with the fans?  Or are you referring to being up there where the Golden Globes occur, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, parking cars?  Or just being "up there" in terms of a particular state of mind altered by imbibing a particular smoking plant?  Or is your "up there" indicating the stage of the Golden Globes?  If so, are you indicating that you should be on the stage at the Golden Globes?  If so, am I to infer that you believe you should be winning an award and, being that this website deals with screenwriting and you're writing to me, a script consultant, are you suggesting that you should be "up there" on the stage at the Golden Globes, winning the award for the best screenplay?  Is that what you mean?

If that be the case, you can absolutely fulfill that wish.  All you have to do is write a magnificent script that is magnificently acted, directed, produced, distributed, and publicized.  Oh. And magnificently received.  Then all you need is the Hollywood Foreign Press to at least like it enough it to give you one of those little golden globes.  (Don't they seem a lot smaller than those Oscars?)   So don't ever give up your dream of having a Golden Globe.  Even if it is small.  And light.  (Don't they seem a lot lighter than the Oscars?)  It's important to know that you, too, can have a Golden Globe.

Which I believe you can use to pinpoint the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.
