Las Vegas - Anybody in a Golden Globe pool tonight? Raise your hand. If you wanna stun all your friends on Zoom, here are the winners in the major categories. And, your welcome!

Start with Best Picture/Drama and check "Nomadland." Move to Best Picture/Musical or Comedy and we're banking on "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm." For Best Actor/Drama, it's a no-brainer for Chadwick Boseman in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom." Best Actor/Musical or Comedy goes to Sacha Baron Cohen in "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm." Best Actress/Drama is a toss up, but we're rolling with Viola Davis in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom." For Best Actress/Musical or Comedy, easy-peezy with Maria Bakalova from "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" holding the Golden Globe. And for Best Director, it's a landslide for Chloe Zhao and her work on "Nomadland."

Gonna go for an early afternoon skate in New York City, and take the visiting Bruins to ice a win. The Rangers walloped Boston on Friday night, 6-2, and we're expecting the Bs to bounce back with a very spirited effort. And would not be surprised if Tuukka Rask throws a bagel at the New Yorkers.
