Oh, the Golden Globes: the most popular awards show where nominations and victories are bought and paid for.  While the Globes have a modest reputation as a good indicator of what will be getting Oscar nominations, this year’s list of nominees features a solid, respectable Best Drama category and a laughably terrible Comedy/Musical category.  Nominated for Best Drama, you have likely Oscar contenders Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The King’s Speech, and The Social Network.  But fighting for Best Comedy/Musical you have the critically panned Alice in Wonderland, Burlesque, and The Tourist.  You also have Red and then the only film that deserves to win, The Kids Are All Right.

Hit the jump for the full list of nominees including my thoughts on the TV shows which received nominations.

    Wow. Not a thing for True Grit … Thought for sure Matt Damon would snag a nomination!

    DiCaprio cannot BUY critical love – nothing for his performances in Shutter Island or Inception. Ouch.

    • Bill Graham

      Pretty sure they hadn’t screened it yet. They could have waited a few more days. I see it Thursday.

    No matter how you feel about the LOST finale you simply cannot deny how phenomenal Matthew Fox was in it. He put his heart and soul out in that finale. I mean do you really have to give Hugh Laurie another nod for House. I’m fine with the other 4 but I’m not sure about Laurie. I’m rooting for Inception, Black Swan, Dexter, The Walking Dead, or Breaking Bad

    Not a thing for “Buried”?
