Once you get past the general awfulness of the Golden Globes, there was a sense that we’re seeing the end of an era. The Golden Globes are always a bit more interesting for their mix of television and film, but just as we’ve seen television take on a more prominent role in the awards as the quality of TV has gotten better, I suspect we’re about to see online content take a more significant role in award shows like this. With Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix all investing in high-end scripted TV, how long is it until we see nominations come from these productions?
Traditional broadcast television is still important in our regular consumption, but if this weeks TV-related news is any indication, 2012 is going to really deliver significant change as streaming media really makes an impact in the way we consume content.
