For TV viewers at home this weekend, we have options!  Saturday on ABC we can watch the 90th Annual Miss America Pageant (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET) and Sunday on NBC we have The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards (8ET/5PT)!

The 2011 Miss America Pageant is no longer in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but now hails from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas! After a week of competitions, watch the 53 contestants from every state in the US wrap up the competition Saturday, January 15 for the final night in swimsuit, talent and evening wear categories.

Television personality and co-host of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Brooke Burke will take the stage and join Chris Harrison, from ABC’s The Bachelor, as hosts of this year’s pageant.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Ricky Gervais, will air live Jan. 16 on NBC at 5 p.m. from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills and Justin Bieber and  Zac Efron will join actress Olivia Wilde as presenters at the awards ceremony!

With so many categories competing, some of my top interests are: Best Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) the running is: Alice in Wonderland, Burlesque, The Kids Are All Right, Red, The Tourist and for Best Motion Picture Drama: Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The King’s Speech and The Social Network will compete.

Halle Berry (Frankie and Alice), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawerence, (Winter’s Bone),  Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine) will all vie for Best Performance by an Actress in Drama Motion Picture and for the guy version of this category we will see Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), James Frano (127 Hours), Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine) and Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter) competing!
