NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Minnesota Timberwolves Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers played a game of basketball against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday at Target Center. They lost that game 108-86, dropping them to 21-19 on the season and 1-5 without LeBron James.

I could try and break down why it is they lost the game or the adjustments they could make ahead of their matchup with the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, but if we’re being honest, there’s really no point. The Lakers are missing three of their most valuable players and the players that were supposed to step up in their absence haven’t.

Instead, let’s look ahead to the only show in Los Angeles worth watching on Sunday: the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will air live at 5 p.m. PST on NBC

These year’s Golden Globes will be hosted by Andy Samberg, best known for his role in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and Sandra Oh, who is best known for her work in “Grey’s Anatomy” and most recently “Killing Eve,” which received a nomination for Outstanding Drama TV Series.

However, all eyes will be on Lady Gaga, who was nominated for her breakout role in “A Star Is Born.” Gaga was also nominated for her performance of “Shallow,” the film’s chart-topping song.

In total, “A Star Is Born” is nominated for five Golden Globe Awards. I haven’t seen the film myself, but I heard it is very good.

But what was your favorite film of 2018? Who do you think will go home with the night’s biggest awards? Let us know in the comments below!
