Golden Globe Nominees

The Golden Globe Nominees were announced for the awards that will be given January 16th. I love the Golden Globes, maybe just a little bit more than the Oscars. It's a little looser, a little crazier. Course I love all my award shows.


Black Swan
The Fighter
The King's Speech
The Social Network

The King's Speech is the leader in nominations, with 7. I really enjoyed that film so I say their well deserved. The Social Network Is also amazing, and I've heard great things about Black Swan. The other two aren't really my cup of tea.


Alice in Wonderland
The Kids Are All Right
The Tourist

The Kids Are Alright was a great film for me, though I know a few lesbians who did not appreciate. Alice in Wonderland was very dark but quite good. Burlesque is a bit of a surprise, while the musical number were spectacular and Cher and Christina are amazing singer/dancers. The film was not very good when they stopped singing. Stanley Tucci had some good lines, but Alan Cumming was completely wasted.(By that I mean they didn't allow him much too do,, not that he was intoxicated.)


Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
David Fincher, The Social Network
Tom Hooper, The King's Speech
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David O. Russell, The Fighter

I've heard not very flattering things about the director of Black Swan so I don't think he should get it. Both The King's Speech and Social Network are neck and neck for me.

Actor, drama

Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King's Speech
James Franco, 127 Hours
Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter

I really feel like Geoffrey Rush should be on this list. He was really amazing and a huge part of The King's Speech. I suppose for the film to sweep the show the leads need to be in different catagories.

Actress, drama

Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter's Bone
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

Actor, comedy/musical

Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland
Johnny Depp, The Tourist
Paul Giamatti, Barney's Version
Jake Gyllenhaal, Love and Other Drugs
Kevin Spacey, Casino Jack

Actress, comedy/musical

Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
Anne Hathaway, Love and Other Drugs
Angelina Jolie, The Tourist
Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right
Emma Stone, Easy A

Christian Bale, The Fighter
Michael Douglas, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
Andrew Garfield, The Social Network
Jeremy Renner, The Town
Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech

Supporting actress

Amy Adams, The Fighter
Helena Bonham Carter, The King's Speech
Mila Kunis, Black Swan
Melissa Leo, The Fighter
Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom

Animated movie

Toy Story 3
The Illusionist
How to Train Your Dragon
Despicable Me


Boardwalk Empire, HBO
Dexter, Showtime
The Good Wife, CBS
Mad Men, AMC
The Walking Dead, AMC

These are all great shows. Mad Men is the nearest and dearest to me, but any of them winning would make sense. It sad how little great TV is on the "networks" anymore. You really need cable to see the good stuff. As this catagory examplifies.


30 Rock, NBC
The Big Bang Theory, CBS
The Big C, Showtime
Glee, Fox
Modern Family, ABC
Nurse Jackie, Showtime

With the exception of The Big Bang Theory, I watch all of these. The Big C was a real stand out. Nurse Jackie has been a constantlty good show as has 30 Rock. This is a hard one.

Actor, drama

Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Michael C. Hall ,Dexter
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Hugh Laurie, House

I think Cranston won this last year. So I say it will probably go to Steve Buscemi. His is a new show, and he is just him, Fabulous.

Actress, drama

Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men
Piper Perabo, Covert Affairs
Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy
Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

Hmmm... These are all great ladies. I think Julianna Margulies should get it though. I'm guessing Kyra will definitely take it for her final season of The Closer next year.

Actor, comedy

Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Steve Carell, The Office
Thomas Jane, Hung
Matthew Morrison, Glee
Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

Actress, comedy

Toni Collette, The United States of Tara
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Tina Fey, 30 Rock

Supporting actor, series, miniseries or movie

Scott Caan, Hawaii Five-O

Chris Noth, The Good Wife
Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family
David Strathairn, Temple Grandin

Supporting actress, series, miniseries or movie

Hope Davis, The Special Relationship

Julia Stiles, Dexter
Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

Miniseries or TV movie

Carlos, Sundance Channel
The Pacific, HBO
Temple Grandin, HBO
You Don't Know Jack, HBO
Pillars of the Earth, Starz

I'm confused wasn't Temple Grandin last year? That should definitely win this year too. An amazing film! I have to say I did not think the Pacific was very good. I'm surprised to see it on this. Maybe they have as big a crush on James Badge Dale as I do.

Actor, miniseries or TV movie

Idris Elba, Luther
Ian McShane, Pillars of the Earth
Al Pacino, You Don't Know Jack
Dennis Quaid, The Special Relationship
Edgar Ramirez, Carlos

Actress, miniseries or TV movie

Hayley Atwell, Pillars of the Earth
Claire Danes, Temple Grandin
Judi Dench, Return to Cranford
Romola Garai, Emma

Well that's my wrap up, we'll see how it goes. I'll be tweeting during the awards, so you can tweet me about all my bad calls.
