Golden Globe Nominations

  1. These have been out for a few days, but I did want to hear everyone's thought/picks/dissapointments regarding these. I've added an "***" to my picks, and who/what I think was left out.

    ***a. BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
    b. THE CONSTANT GARDENER - WHY?
    c. GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK
    d. A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE
    e. MATCH POINT

    It seems like a pretty weak selection.


    2. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA

    a. MARIA BELLO
    A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE
    ***b. FELICITY HUFFMAN
    TRANSAMERICA

    PROOF

    c. TERRENCE HOWARD
    HUSTLE & FLOW
    d. HEATH LEDGER
    BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
    e. DAVID STRATHAIRN
    GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK

    No Jake? And Nick Cage in the Weatherman was very good.

    4. BEST MOTION PICTURE - MUSICAL OR COMEDY

    a. MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS
    b. PRIDE & PREJUDICE
    c. THE PRODUCERS
    d. THE SQUID AND THE WHALE
    e. WALK THE LINE

    A whole bunch of "Whys" in here for me. I think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory should have been included.

    5. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - MUSICAL OR COMEDY

    a. JUDI DENCH
    MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS
    b. KEIRA KNIGHTLEY
    PRIDE & PREJUDICE

    d. NATHAN LANE
    THE PRODUCERS
    e. CILLIAN MURPHY
    BREAKFAST ON PLUTO
    ***f. JOAQUIN PHOENIX
    WALK THE LINE

    A lot of picks in this category. But why even bother? We all know Joaquin will win. But why wasn't Steve Carrell included for 40 Year Old Virgin? His performance on the poster alone was worthy of a nomination!

    8. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE

    a. SCARLETT JOHANSSON WHY?
    MATCH POINT
    b. SHIRLEY MacLAINE
    IN HER SHOES
    ***c. FRANCES McDORMAND
    NORTH COUNTRY
    d. RACHEL WEISZ
    THE CONSTANT GARDENER

    Scarlett always comes performances always come across as flat and unwatchable for me.

    SYRIANA
    b. MATT DILLON
    CRASH

    As you can see from the numbers, I skipped a few categories.

    14. BEST TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA

    a. COMMANDER IN CHIEF (ABC)
    b. GREY’S ANATOMY (ABC)
    c. LOST (ABC)

    I don't watch a single one of these shows.

    a. PATRICIA ARQUETTE
    MEDIUM
    b. GLENN CLOSE
    THE SHIELD
    c. GEENA DAVIS

    a. PATRICK DEMPSEY
    GREY’S ANATOMY
    b. MATTHEW FOX
    LOST
    c. HUGH LAURIE
    HOUSE
    d. WENTWORTH MILLER
    PRISON BREAK
    e. KIEFER SUTHERLAND
    24

    None of these either.


    17. BEST TELEVISION SERIES - MUSICAL OR COMEDY

    a. CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM (HBO)
    HBO Entertainment
    b. DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES (ABC)
    Touchstone Television
    c. ENTOURAGE (HBO)
    Leverage and Closest to the Hole Prods. i.a.w. HBO Entertainment
    ***d. EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS (UPN)
    Chris Rock Enterprises, Inc. and 3 Arts Entertainment i.a.w Paramount Network Television
    e. MY NAME IS EARL (NBC)
    Acme Prods. i.a.w. 20th Century Fox Television
    f. WEEDS (SHOWTIME)
    Lions Gate Television i.a.w. Tilted Prods.

    I wish Scrubs, Arrested Development, and King of Queens would have made the list. I was torn between Earl and Everybody Hates Chris. But I choose Everybody Hates Chris because I think the acting is much better.


    18. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES - MUSICAL OR COMEDY

    a. MARCIA CROSS
    DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
    b. TERI HATCHER
    DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
    c. FELICITY HUFFMAN
    DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
    d. EVA LONGORIA
    DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
    e. MARY-LOUISE PARKER
    WEEDS
    ***f. BOTOX

    Clearly, from the list of nominees it is Botox's year to win.

    BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES - MUSICAL OR COMEDY

    a. ZACH BRAFF
    SCRUBS
    b. STEVE CARELL
    THE OFFICE
    c. LARRY DAVID
    CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM
    ***d. JASON LEE
    MY NAME IS EARL
    e. CHARLIE SHEEN WHY?
    TWO AND A HALF MEN

    Sheen's acting on Two and a Half Men is so bad and Sheen-esque I can't believe he was nominated and Jason Bateman wasn't. BOO!

    I was torn between Carrell and Jason Lee. Carrell's performance is so good it makes me uneasy and enthralled at the same time. But Jason Lee's Earl warms my heart. The mustache alone should get him the win.



    20. BEST MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

    ***a. EMPIRE FALLS (HBO)
    b. INTO THE WEST (TNT)
    c. LACKAWANNA BLUES (HBO)
    d. SLEEPER CELL (SHOWTIME)
    e. VIVA BLACKPOOL (BBC AMERICA)

    I didn't watch these either. But my sister would kill me if I didn't pick Empire Falls.

    21. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MINI-SERIES OR A MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

    ***a. HALLE BERRY
    THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD

    LACKAWANNA BLUES
    d. CYNTHIA NIXON

    WARM SPRINGS
    b. ED HARRIS
    EMPIRE FALLS

    ELVIS
    d. BILL NIGHY
    THE GIRL IN THE CAFÉ
    e. DONALD SUTHERLAND
    HUMAN TRAFFICKING

    ELVIS
    c. SANDRA OH
    GREY’S ANATOMY
    d. ELIZABETH PERKINS
    WEEDS
    e. JOANNE WOODWARD
    EMPIRE FALLS

    I don't even care about these women. Jessica Walter from AD should be on here.

    24. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

    a. NAVEEN ANDREWS
    LOST
    b. PAUL NEWMAN
    EMPIRE FALLS
    ***c. JEREMY PIVEN
    ENTOURAGE
    d. RANDY QUAID
    ELVIS
    e. DONALD SUTHERLAND
    COMMANDER IN CHIEF

    Sadly, no David Cross, John C. McGinley, or GOB Bluth are on this list. BOO!
     
  2. Selfishly......the only ones I really want to win are Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix in "Walk The Line". Both of their performances were excellent and after finding out that they both did all the vocals and singing, I think they're more than worthy of the Golden Globe. =)
     
  3. Joaquin Phoenix is :love: I haven't seen any of the movies nominated for best motion picture. And pretty much all the actresses from Desperate Housewives were nominated? Eh, I'm not as into that show as I used to be. This season is boring to me for some reason. I love Lost! I hope it wins Best Television Series.
     
  4. Had to include this:
    [​IMG]
     
  5. Oh dear :love: Well, guess it's about time to change my computer's wallpaper.....


    Whoops, my post didn't quote the photo :shame:
     
  6. What is up with desperate hosewives???? In my opinion its the worst show on tv! It's completely stupid that 4 out of the 5 spots for best actress are occupied by those "actress". If you ask me they are all just mediocre!
     
  7. Yeah, I have a hard time believing Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross really deserved their names up there. I hope Felicity Huffman beats all their asses (again).
     
  8. actually, i'm rooting for marcia cross. i think she's awesome on the show. and i'm hoping that cillian murphy will win. i haven't seen breakfast on pluto, but this man is so god damn hot i don't care even if his acting is worse than ben affleck's.
     
  9. jj: i love cillian murphy. he IS damn hot. woo.

    i don't get the desperate housewives noms... did all 4 of them need noms?? haha. i actually really loved the movie proof and i think gwyneth paltrow did an excellent job. i wasn't a fan of her before seeing the movie but now i realize i love her. haha. reese and joaquin should definitely win and i am completely puzzled by sjp's nom for the family stone.. i am the biggest sjp fan but that movie was just...not good. haha.
     
  10. Hahhaa.. aww, Constant Gardener. I thought that movie could have been so much better, especially since Ralph Fiennes is hotttt, but yeah, that was a huge disappointment.
     
  11. I haven't seen ALL this stuff - but Philip Seymour Hoffman OWNS this Globe - He WAS Capote! My favoirite sitcom is "Curb" I think Larry David is twice as funny as Seinfeld - also what's with Eva Longoria ? I don't get that at all...........Marcia Cross is great!!
    I like SJP but enough already!! She and Matthew are all over the place!
     
  12. I love the PSH Love - that man is one of my favorite actors. Owning Mahowny is my favorite drama.
     
  13. I am so happy Terrence Howard was nominated. I actually liked that lil movie.
