Golden Globes 2024 
Jonathan Chairez
The Golden Globe Award Show honors the best films and television productions/series, actresses, and actors. The ceremony aired live on January 7, 2024, on Paramount+, and CBS. The host this year was Jo Koy who started the ceremony off with his opening monologue. during the monologue, Koy would turn heads at the ceremony and for the viewers at home for making egregious statements about the movie Barbie and Taylor Swift. saying “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift.” the camera then panned to Taylor very unamused. he would then go on to comment about the Barbie he described as being “a plastic doll with big boobies.” people at home were quick to go to  X (Twitter) and comment on the host's lack of "funniness" and how unnecessary the comments were in all the viewers were not happy and are demanding there be better host next year. I was watching the Golden Globes on Paramount+. Sometimes it would pause suddenly as a complaint and slightly sucked. However, my opinion on Jo Koy's hosting. Koy was not that good of a host. Understanding he is a comedian, does not necessarily mean to give jokes when presenting/hosting the award show. These Golden Globe Awards are prestigious. A host must have a good script that entertains/is for every celebrity, actor, actress, director, etc.

the big winners of the night were:
category “Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television” I was expecting Elizabeth Olsen to win for her performance in “Love & Death” which was outstanding. However, unfortunately, Olsen did not win.

Echo:
Jonathan Chairez
Marvel’s Echo is the first TV-MA series that premiered the whole season on January 9, 2024, on Disney+. Echo is a character appearing in Marvel Comics created by Joe Quesada and David Mack. Maya is an amazing character because she balances good and evil. Echo, or Maya
Lopez was introduced to the MCU in the Disney+ show “Hawkeye” as the commander of the Tracksuit Mafia, a gang that was previously run by her father. Born deaf, she's the second deaf superhero to show up in the MCU, following the appearance of Makkari in “Eternals”. Maya is Native American and Echo follows her as she attempts to process the death of her father and embrace her indigenous roots and family. Over five episodes, the
show dives into Maya's culture and roots in an exploration of her origin story.
I have watched episode one and I got to say it was outstanding. It left with a cliffhanger, of course. When I have the time, I will watch the next episode or binge it all. As a huge Marvel nerd/fan, I so anticipated and waited forever to see (spoiler alert ahead) Daredevil and Echo fight. Both have disabilities in the MCU, Daredevil is blind, and Echo is deaf. This brought a very
magnificent fight scene to the MCU. I recommend this show if you are a huge fan of Marvel’s work, or just want to watch something with amazing tons of action. In my opinion, Maya is an interesting character because she has a very close relationship with Kingpin (William Grant Fisk is a supervillain and powerful businessman and crime lord with and dark past as a child.) What makes
this show so good is they cast an actress who is deaf. So therefore, the incorporated sign language makes it very much different from any other TV show series, or movie Marvel has made.
