Here Are The Golden Globe Nominations!


Here are the Golden Globe Nominees!  Oddly, no one seems to have much respect for the people who give out the Golden Globes and the show itself is always kind of a drag but, for whatever reason, the Globes have become perhaps the biggest of the non-guild precursors.  Getting a Golden Globe nomination will definitely help those who are trying to get the Academy’s attention right now.

My main thought on the nominees: Joker did really well.  Uncut Gems went unmentioned, which will probably be the end of Adam Sandler’s Oscar campaign, unless he manages to snag a SAG nomination.  It’s nice to see Dolemite Is My Name getting some attention.  That’s a film that gets better the more that I think about it.

I don’t know — there’s not any terrible nominations or anything like that.  I’m sorry that a few films and people were overlooked but it’s been a strong year for film and there’s a lot of legitimate contenders so there’s just not going to be room for everyone.  It happens.  There’s no outrageously terrible nominations, like when The Tourist was nominated several years ago.  At the same time, the Golden Globes always leave me with feelings of malaise and ennui.  I guess it’s because we are now leaving the “what if” phase of awards season and starting to get to the, “So, these are going to be our nominees” phase.

Here are the Golden Globe film nominations.  If you want to see the TV nominees, do a freaking Google search …. or just click on this link to a full list of nominees!

  1. I’m really torn on a lot of these nominations. 🙂

    For Best Actress, I want either De Armas or Feldman to get it, but Awkwafina may have that locked down. Would have also liked to have seen Booksmart sneak in on the BP: Comedy, but it wasn’t meant to be.

    Bale’s my favorite for Best Actor, though Joaquin really put himself through the ringer for Joker. He pulled a Bale.

    The one thing that really stings is that Willem Dafoe didn’t get anything for The Lighthouse. He was fantastic in that, but that Supporting Actor fight is between Pesci (who deserves it) and Pitt, who was pretty good.
