Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will try to rodeo runaway Hollywood egos when they host 71st Golden Globes tonight (Dec.12) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. TheImproper’s Red Carpet Live Stream begins at 4pm Pacific and 7pm Eastern.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Naomi Watts Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence are all a lock to be there.

They’re either presenting or up for awards in a range of categories recognizing excellence in film and television in 2013. Or at least how host The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) sees it.

The Globes have always been Awards Show Lite compared with the Academy Awards. They’re quirkier and more laid back almost like a high school reunion.

But they’ve gained credibility over the past few years and now the event is a must attend for Hollywood movers and shakers.

The nominees are always head-scratching, as much for those who are named as it is for those who are conspicuously overlooked by the voting members.

For example, the biggest Globes exclusion by far this year has to be “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.”

The uplifting film was shut out of the nominations, even though it won Screen Actor’s Guild nods for Forest Whittaker (Best Actor) and Oprah Winfrey (Best Supporting Actress) and best picture.

Among the surprise Globe nominees are Kate Winslet for “Labor Day,” Greta Gerwig for “Frances Ha,” Oscar Isaac for “Inside Llewyn Davis” Dern for “Nebraska” and Joaquin Phoenix for “Her.”

Idris Elba was nominated for best actor, drama for his role in “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.” Both he an the film where shut out of the SAG nominations.

Among films, “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle” led all other pictures with with seven nominations each. Both films were nominated for best picture. Directors Steve McQueen and David O. Russell were also nominated

Actors Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o from “12 Years a Slave,” and Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper from “American Hustle” were tapped for acting honors.

In the television category, political drama “House of Cards” and HBO’s Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” lead with four nods apiece.
