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.

63rd Golden Globe Awards Nominations
Hollywood Foreign Press Association
2006 Golden Globe Awards
for the year ended December 31, 2005
http://www.hfpa.org/news/id/13

1. BEST MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA

***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
c. GWYNETH PALTROW WHY?
PROOF
d. CHARLIZE THERON
NORTH COUNTRY
e. ZIYI ZHANG
MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA

3. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA

a. RUSSELL CROWE
CINDERELLA MAN
***b. PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN
CAPOTE
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
c. LAURA LINNEY

c. JOHNNY DEPP
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
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

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

SYRIANA
b. MATT DILLON
CRASH
c. WILL FERRELL
THE PRODUCERS
***d. PAUL GIAMATTI

***c. PAUL HAGGIS & BOBBY MORESCO
CRASH
d. TONY KUSHNER & ERIC ROTH
MUNICH
e. LARRY McMURTRY & DIANA OSSANA

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)
d. PRISON BREAK (FOX)
e. ROME (HBO)

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



15. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA

a. PATRICIA ARQUETTE
MEDIUM
b. GLENN CLOSE
THE SHIELD
c. GEENA DAVIS
COMMANDER IN CHIEF
d. KYRA SEDGWICK
THE CLOSER
e. POLLY WALKER
ROME

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

16. BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA

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)
f. WARM SPRINGS (HBO)

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
b. KELLY MacDONALD
THE GIRL IN THE CAFÉ
c. S. EPATHA MERKERSON
LACKAWANNA BLUES
d. CYNTHIA NIXON
WARM SPRINGS

I chose the hottest actress by default.



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

a. KENNETH BRANAGH
WARM SPRINGS
b. ED HARRIS
EMPIRE FALLS
***c. JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS
ELVIS
d. BILL NIGHY

a. CANDICE BERGEN
BOSTON LEGAL
b. CAMRYN MANHEIM
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!

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. =)

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.

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!

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).

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.

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.

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!

I love the PSH Love - that man is one of my favorite actors. Owning Mahowny is my favorite drama.
