Golden Globes Numbers Share.
The big losers were pretty much in line with the Broadcast Record Critics Awards, with “Saturday Night Live” and “Stranger Things” tying for the awards for best comedy. “Stranger Things” won the top overall award, while “Stranger Things” and the Oscars show shared the Critics’ Choice Award for top drama.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar believes the “Stranger Things” win shows that “youthful, edgy, and the future of TV,” on both sides of the aisle.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) came under fire for a “family vacation” she had to pay back to the Internal Revenue Service.
The comptroller of the currency’s office says that Warren paid back about $183,000 in taxes related to a loan she had with her mother.
The loan was for $700,000, and Warren had to provide collateral.
The measure triggered a dispute because Warren claims Cherokee ancestry, according to several reports. It looks like this was an effort by her to show that she did pay back the loan. The IRS issued the following statement:
“In reviewing her records, the IRS determined that the American Loan she obtained in 1981 resulted in a liability of $777,617.35 for the sum of $700,000 and $87,024.51, plus interest. A cash payment or a loan sale of the American Loan resulted in the carrying value of the loan receivable to $670,503.63 and the carrying value of the put-option asset to $2,327,891.29.”
