And the award for worst live stream goes too....
Seriously, the HFPA needed to sort their live stream out. I couldn't hear half of these. Here's a list of the 2016 Golden Globe nominations. There was a few great surprises here, and some eye rollers as well. My thoughts follow in green.
Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical
Mozart in the Jungle
Orange Is the New Black
Two of these I haven't heard of, Two are not comedies, and the other two are Veep and Silicon Valley which are very deserving of their spot.
Best Actress in a TV Series - Comedy
Rachel Bloom- Crazy Ex Girlfriend
Jamie Lee Curtis- Scream Queens
Lily Tomlin - Grace and Frankie
Julia Louis-Dreyfus - Veep
Gina Rodriquez - Jane the Virgin
I've only seen Veep so JLD forever.
Best Actor in a TV Series - Comedy
Aziz Ansari - Master of None
Gael García Bernal - Mozart in the Jungle
Rob Lowe - The Grinder
Patrick Stewart - Blunt Talk
Jeffrey Tambor - Transparent
It's cool to see Aziz here. I'm sure this is Tambor's to lose. I think Rob Lowe is a douche, though I haven't seen The Grinder, nor have I ever heard of it. Still a douche.
Best TV Limited Series/Motion Picture
American Horror Story: Hotel
Flesh and Bone
Best Actress in a Limited Series/TV Movie
Kirsten Dunst - Fargo
Lady Gada - American Horror Story: Hotel
Sarah Hay - Flesh and Bone
Felicity Huffman - American Crime
Queen Latifah - Bessie
Kirsten Dunst is so good in Fargo even though I hate her character with a passion. I'm happy to see her here. Of course the HFPA gave into the Gaga hype.
Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie
Uzo Aduba - Orange Is the New Black
Joanna Frogatt - Downton Abbey
Regina King - American Crime
Maura Tierney - The Affair
Judith Light - Transparent
Not that I expected her to be here, but Melissa McBride really should've been for The Walking Dead. Shit writing aside, she slays every single scene she's in.
Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited-Series or TV Movie
Alan Cumming - The Good Wife
Damien Lewis - Wolf Hall
Ben Mendelsohn - Bloodline
Tobias Menzies - Outlander
Christian Slater - Mr. Robot
Best Actor in a Limited Series/TV Movie
Idris Elba - Luther
Oscar Isaac - Show Me a Hero
David Oyelowo - Nightingale
Mark Rylance - Wolf Hall
Patrick Wilson - Fargo
Happy to see Wilson here.
Best TV Series, Drama
Game of Thrones
I love Mr. Robot and Game of Thrones being here. Outlander, from what I watched in S1 was good too. And Empire makes a bit of a come back after being snubbed at the SAGS.
Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama
Jon Hamm - Mad Men
Rami Malek - Mr. Robot
Wagner Moura - Narcos
Bob Odenkirk - Better Caul Saul
Liev Schreiber - Ray Donovan
Rami!! It's too bad he'll lose to John Hamm.
Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama
Caitriona Balfe - Outlander
Viola Davis - How to Get Away With Murder
Eva Green - Penny Dreadful
Taraji P. Henson - Empire
Robin Wright - House of Cards
Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
The Big Short
Everyone is bitching about The Martian being here but I honestly have no problem with it. That movie was funny and a lot funnier than some of the other comedies that were out this year.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Jennifer Lawrence - Joy
Melissa McCarthy - Spy
Amy Schumer - Trainwreck
Maggie Smith - The Lady in the Van
Lily Tomlin - Grandma
I was right in my prediction that Lily Tomlin would get some Globes love for this. But the big question is...are you ready for some "hilarious" Lawrence/Schumer shenanigans on the red carpet?
Best Motion Picture - Drama
Mad Max: Fury Road
Fury Road is a hit this awards season so far. I was not expecting it to get all this love. I like these nominations, even though it's a shame Brooklyn and Sicario missed out.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama
Cate Blanchett - Carol
Brie Larson - Room
Rooney Mara - Carol
Saoirse Ronan - Brooklyn
Alicia Vikander - The Danish Girl
Dennis Quaid butchered Saoirse's name. Seriously, it's not like she's an unknown, people should be pronouncing this correctly by now. HFPA was having none of that category fraud. They just kiss big stars' asses, is all.
Best Actor in Motion Picture - Drama
Bryan Cranston - Trumbo
Leonardo DiCaprio - The Revenant
Michael Fassbender - Steve Jobs
Eddie Redmayne - The Danish Girl
Will Smith - Concussion
Will Smith? Really? Trembly, Depp, or Attah would've been better choices. Hell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt for The Walk would've been better
Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture
Jane Fonda - Youth
Jennifer Jason Leigh - The Hateful Eight
Helen Mirren - Trumbo
Alicia Vikander - Ex Machina
Kate Winslet - Steve Jobs
Vikander is a double nominee. I'm probably the most excited about her in this category, which is kind of uneventful for me at the moment. Kristen Stewart being in for Clouds of Sils Maria would make it more eventful.
Best Actor in Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Christian Bale - The Big Short
Steve Carell - The Big Short
Matt Damon - The Martian
Al Pacino - Danny Collins
Mark Ruffalo - Infinitely Polar Bear
I love, love, LOVE Ruffalo being here for Infinitely Polar Bear. He was so good and that film was such a gem. I'm glad it's getting a bit of attention.
Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
Paul Dano - Love & Mercy
Idris Elba - Beasts of No Nation
Michael Shannon - 99 Homes
Sylvester Stallone - Creed
Mark Rylance - Bridge of Spies
I LOVE Dano and Shannon being in here. That's all I care about. Idris, though I love him was meh in Beasts and I don't care about Creed or Bridge of Spies. I would rather see Tom Hardy for The Revenant and Mark Ruffalo for Spotlight than Stallone and Rylance
Best Animated Film
The Good Dinosaur
The Peanuts Movie
Shaun the Sheep Movie
I imagine this will be the Oscar line up too.
Best Screenplay – Motion Picture
The Big Short
The Hateful Eight
I thought Steve Jobs was dead in the water for anything other than Fassy. I should've known better. Sorkin has gotten a Globe nomination for every single major film he's written.
Best Original Score – Motion Picture
The Danish Girl
The Hateful Eight
I really don't remember Steve Jobs' score at the moment, and haven't seen the rest.
Best Original Song – Motion Picture
"Love Me Like You Do" - Fifty Shades of Grey
"One Kind of Love" - Love and Mercy
"See You Again" - Furious 7
"Simple Song #3" -Youth
"Writings on the Wall" - Spectre
Fifty Shades is a Globe nominee. Good lord. I'm Glad Love & Mercy is here, but that awful Spectre song shouldn't be.
Best Foreign Language Film
The Brand New Testament - Belgium, France and Luxembourg
The Club - Chile
The Fencer - Estonia
Mustang - Colombia
Son of Saul - Hungary
I didn't realize countries could share a film like this. I haven't seen any of these. Good for Estonia for getting another nomination in. I loved Tangerines.
