Netflix, HBO Battle as Streaming Dominates 2020 Golden Globes Nominations

How The Golden Globes Celebrate Cinematic Television (Column)

When Martin Scorsese complains that a Marvel movie isn’t cinema, he’s not wrong. But his critique of the commercialism undergirding those movies is expressed in the language and tone of an old crank defending a fading novelty from some darned, degenerate kids.
