  1. Considering The Dark Knight Returns got a small theatrical release, it totally should’ve been nominated over croods.

    • Yeah I don’t know why the heck Croods is in there.

  2. Some proper recognition for Tatiana Maslany at last. About time. But go on, I dare you to award ‘The Hunt’ Best Foreign Film. Nothing would make me happier (yes, yes, yes. Man crush for Mads Mikkelsen ahoy. Especially after ‘Hannibal’).

    Wouldn’t say no to some love for Damon/Douglas for the wonderful ‘Behind The Candelabra’ either. Be brave for once.

    ‘Gravity’ simply has to win for Best Original Score though. Wonderful in itself when watching the movie, but only do you appreciate it fully when you listen to it separately. It is a maddening composition.

  3. Wow Coldplay got nominated for ‘Atlas’? Nice, hope they win, though I can’t say I listened to the other tracks that were nominated lol.

  4. Really discouraged to see Puella Magi: Madoka Magica: Rebellion didn’t make the cut for best Animated Feature. Very beautifully crafted with 10/10 visuals. It’s dissapointing to see it fall short, but glad that it was nominated. What bothers me most is it carries much stronger depth and lasting value than The Croods or Dispicable Me 2 had.

    However, I REALLY hope The Hunt over-takes The Wind Rises. Ghibli films are great, but Mads actig in The Hunt is unparalleled. Excellent film.

  5. Why is the Wolf of Wall Street nominated, it hasnt been released yet, I havent read any review, how could they vote for it? Have all the editors seen it?

    • Critics and journalists have seen it already. They’re just forbidden to talk about it

  6. Am I the only person who have seen American Hustle? Amy Adams definitely deserves to win. And Christian Bale was actually really good in it too. It looks like whenever he works with that director (like in The Fighter) he gives a good performance…

    • already? it comes out next week

      • Oh, didn’t realize it isn’t released yet. I saw it at a screening last week, usually the movie comes out the weekend after the screening so I thought it came out this last weekend, lol. Definitely go see it if you are a fan of either Silver Linings Playbook or The Fighter. He literally took the stars from both movies and mashed them together in this movie, lol.

        • i’m plannning on seeing it looks great, plus enjoyed Fighter alot Bale is awsome in it

  7. what a great year in TV

  8. ah no love for Game of Thrones. Well just as long as Bryan Cranston and Breaking Bad win.

  9. Thats why i never watch these award shows, its just a bunch of snobs who are to full of them selves to nominate things like walking dead and game of thrones, easily in the top 5 or 10 best shows in quite a long time

    • These ‘snobs’ have actually nominated Walking Dead and Game of Thrones in the past. I guess back then they weren’t snobs then.

  10. The secret of Walter Mitty suck that bad ??
    Critics killed it at the New York film festival earlier this year

  11. The secret of Walter Mitty suck that bad ??
    Critics took no pity and killed it at the New York film festival earlier this year

  12. There was an interview a while back on EW with a person who voted for the Golden Globes who said that James Gandolfini most likely wouldn’t be nominated because he couldn’t attend the awards. WHAT???
    That right there says everything you need to know about this show.
    So while I’d like to rant about Justified being ignored again and wonder if they just forgot Mad Men and Game of Thrones were on the air the statement above proves that it’s pointless.
    I’ll just wait for the day after when I can watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s best bits on-line.

  13. What happens when you mix Batman, Lois lane, Mystique and Rocket raccoon? :)

    • Welp, if you add Hawkeye in there I might just have to change my pants.

  14. Hawkeye too

  15. Lizzy Caplan totally deserved a nomination. Ah well.

    • @ boogoo

      + 1 to that…
      Masters of Sex has some highs and lows but week to week, heck from scene to scene even Lizzy Caplan is fantastic.

  16. Breaking Bad definitely deserves the win. Bryan Cranston is in tough category but should win, Aaron Paul is definitely the best supporting actor in TV show between this nominees.

  17. No the walking dead or great gatsby?

  18. Cranston! Ejiofor! Louis-Dreyfuss or Falco! Fassbender! Dicaprio! Bateman! Paul! We need some better animated films made nowadays…
