So begins this year’s award season. We’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about our favorites, both in television, film, and cheese. If we were handing out the awards on Sunday, this is who we would choose to award those Golden (Cheese) Globes. In preparation, be sure to pair these cheeses with your Golden Globe viewing party.
If you’re looking for a cheese to pair with this seaside film, we have to recommend an aged Manchego. Its salty, crumbly paste is going to pair great with the sea salted air (or your salty tears). While we can’t promise that this cheese will bring your family closer together, or solve your failed marriage, we can promise that it’s delicious.
Best Musical or Comedy
Much like this highly fanciful modern-day musical, La Tur is simply decadent. While Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are busy balancing chasing their dreams and falling in love, we ask – why not have both? This creamy, fluffy cheese is like a dream come true with the kind of champagne they’re serving at those parties in Hollywood, and you better believe we’re in love.
Best Animated Film
Annelies may come from the Alps, not by the sea, but these two have more in common than you’d think. Much like Moana was chosen by the sea to travel across the oceans, Annelies has traveled over mountains and across the sea to get to Murray’s caves. The result is an inspiring flavor that has a flavor that tastes distinctly where it comes from (hazelnuts, alpine grasses, butterscotch). It’s a taste that you’ll be thanking us for. And as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says, You’re Welcome.
Best Television Drama
We might not know what is real and what isn’t when it comes to Westworld, but we do know one thing: West Loop Salumi is the real deal. With the rustic and traditional style that would have made it right at home in Westworld, Chicago’s Salumiere is as masterful in charcuterie as Anthony Hopkins is as making lifelike robots. We also think their savory, porky sticks are just about as addictive as this winning show.
Best Television Musical or Comedy
We’ve seen this show win before, and Mozzarella is no different. Everyone loves these two – they go well with everything (comedy, drama, pizza) and pretty much everyone loves them. Whether you’re a free young spirit like Rodrigo, or a veteran traditionalist like Thomas, you can style mozzarella any way that you like – it’s a flexible, versatile cheese that can be snacked on, melted, or smoked.
Best Limited Series
The Night Of kept us guessing for nine episodes, and it still doesn’t seem like enough. Was Naz innocent? What really happened that night? We could have been satisfied watching this series all year – but limited series means limited. But you know what does keep us satisfied all year long? Our monthly clubs; delivering exciting new cheeses, meats, and pairings each month, it’s like a new episode dropping. I mean, we have to channel our anticipation somehow.
