Pop Goes The News — Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards show is a glitzy champagne-fueled kick-off to Hollywood awards season with stars of film and television tearfully thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press for the honours.

But viewers should take the awards with a huge grain of salt.

Pop Goes The News — For the first time in a decade, at least three films with significant Canadian ties could compete for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

Many critics are predicting Spotlight (largely shot in Southern Ontario), The Revenant (mostly filmed in Alberta) and Room (made in Toronto) will be among the nominees for the top honour at the 88th Academy Awards on Feb. 28.
