In his boilerplate Golden Globes lead-up piece, AP reporter David Germain says “there [is] no clear front-runner for the best-drama prize, whose nominees Include The Departed, the Robert Kennedy-in-absentia tale Bobby, the suburban comic drama Little Children and the British-royalty story The Queen.” Saying there’s “no clear front-runner” is a dodge, unless I’m way off the mark. It’s The Departed, son…The Departed.
