FILM

Ryan2012: Hooray for Jennifer Aniston’s nomination!!! Can’t wait to see “Cake.”

ThemeParks4Life: The solo nominees were pretty much the 4 everyone was predicting and a surprise … Surprised “Into the Woods” and “Foxcatcher” weren’t nominated for Ensemble. Now that Aniston got nominated here, I’m tempted to put her in the 5th spot for the Globes.

Tye-Grr: [Jake Gyllenhaal] was a nice surprise. So, either they just didn’t care for these films or they screened too late: “Selma,” “A Most Violent Year.” Expect them to have a presence at tomorrow’s Globe nominations announcement though.

Mike: Patricia Arquette has 3 nominations this year: “Boyhood” cast, “Boardwalk Empire” cast, and Supp. Actress for “Boyhood.” NICE! She is going home with at least 1 (supp. actress), and hopefully 2 (movie cast).

Laactingnyc: They snubbed [Jessica Chastain], [Hilary Swank], [Oscar Isaac], [Joaquin Phoenix], [Josh Brolin]. Ugh.

Sasha: For every Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, and Tatiana Maslany, there is so much rubber-stamping it’s ridiculous. Especially on TV side (William H. Macy anyone? Ellen Burstyn ANYONE?). Yup, they clearly didn’t disappoint me on TV side. So predictable.

TV

Awardzilla: Well in comedy ensemble it looks like [“Orange is the New Black“] has more cast members than its 4 co-nominees put together. Time to dethrone “Modern Family“!

msnowden1: After a couple years of complaining, [Maslany] FINALLY gets a major award nomination. She’s coming for that Emmy nom, guys! … Other than Maslany and [Richard Jenkins], though, these nominations are predictable as hell. And if [Jim Parsons] wins the SAG, I’m going to be REALLY pissed.

oopschoice: Emmy will look more stupid than ever if they fail to acknowledge Tatiana Maslany this year.

NateDoggg: In longform, I really overestimated “The Normal Heart,” but am really hoping that [Mark Ruffalo] and [Julia Roberts] pull off wins here.

outsider: I was so sure they would nomiate Robin Williams [for Comedy Actor for “The Crazy Ones“] and even give him the win.
