Guys, guys, wake up! Wake up! Guys! The 2014 Golden Globe nominations came! They’re all downstairs and they look beautiful! Wake up! WAKE UP! There certainly are some surprises this year. Most of the awards are being given to teachers and social workers, first of all. And the rest of the award statues are just going to be turned into dog toys and given to dogs with missing limbs? It’s an odd and unexpected choice by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, but one that Hollywood is coming to support with open arms and just kidding, the nominations are all just regular! Just movie and TV people, like normal! OH THANK HEAVENS! There are some “surprises” though. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has a few nominations, which is nuts and very nice for that show. (No New Girl for Best TV Comedy, though!) Monica Potter was nominated for Parenthood, which is 100 years late and very nice for me. And, well, I won’t spoil the rest for you! GO OPEN YOUR HOLLYWOOD TREASURE!

  1. I’ll only be watching to see the two most wonderful people in Hollywood do their schtick.

    That being said, I am surprised to see Mad Men left off this list completely.

    Also I would like Tatiana Maslany to win the category she’s in which shouldn’t be hard seeing as she’s not up against the regulars (Claire Danes, Anna Gunn, Elisabeth Moss) or the other great one (Keri Russell, amirite??)

  2. The best thing about Awards Nomination Season is waking up bleary eyed and reading extremely long lists about things which with you’re barely familiar.

  3. How does America Horror Story get away with being nominated as a miniseries every year?

    Also: a LOT of movies rushed their limited release dates this year in order to get nominated, didn’t they? I know that’s a common strategy, but seriously, I haven’t even heard of a bunch of these.

  4. I keep thinking Rush is the JoGo movie about bike messengers and being very confused and intrigued! And then I realize it’s about car racing and I get less interested. And then I realize it’s starring my German boyfriend, and I get interested again.

  5. Don’t think a single movie in the Drama category would place in the Comedy or Musical category. Fine with it.

  6. So American Hustle is a comedy? I assumed it was a drama with some funny one liners. Or is it a musical??? If Christian Bale broke into song while in that costume, it would be pretty fantastic.

  7. Technically it’s in the genre “how do we fit in all these men directors even though Lake Bell made a real comedy that was one of the best movies of the year…”

  8. Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see

  9. I hope Chiwetel wins in both his categories! Dancing on the Edge was a pretty good miniseries but it probably only got nominated because people finally know who he is.

  10. Arrested Development was ROBBED… again
