15 thoughts on “Golden Globes 2015: Complete list of nominations

  1. Yay! Melissa McCarthy got nominated!! She deserves it and so does “Spy.” Yay!

    Boo! No Kevin Spacey, Terrence Howard, Timothy Hutton, Tituss Burgess, Ellie Kemper, Jonathan Banks, Taylor Schilling

  2. Alot better ones out there than what was listed. Some i never heard of! This is way i don’t watch award shows. Everyone has different taste so who to say what better.

  3. A solid set of nominees, though the lack of acting nominations for Spotlight does intrigue me. Voters recognize it in the top awards, but SAG not wanting to nominate its male performances and the HFPA not nominating anyone at all at the Golden Globes kind of suggests a lesser and maybe even dwindling love for what has been considered “the Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture”.

    No love for Sicario anywhere? Not even a Best Original Score nod for Jóhann Jóhannsson? (Given that even the Spotlight men couldn’t get nominated, I’m not as surprised that Benicio Del Toro couldn’t either.) That’s a damn shame, considering that it’s my favorite film of 2015 so far, but it does make sense.

    Time to rant about something that doesn’t make any sense to me whatsoever.

    The total absence of “Feels Like Summer” from Shaun The Sheep in any Best Original Song category thus far utterly breaks my heart. That song, to me, was the best original film song of 2015 by far, not just because of its composition and clever songwriting, but most especially because of the song’s thematic relevance and importance within the film for which it was written. It’s not just some ditty that some studio hacks (e.g. “See You Again”, “Love Me Like You Do” or more appropriately, “F*ck Me Like You Do”), a bored/boring popular artist (e.g. “See You Again”, “Love Me Like You Do”, and even “Writing’s On The Wall”—already an all-time bottom five Bond theme song for me due to its complete lack of non-piano percussion, some forced rhymes, and a technically-perfect-but-emotionally-tedious performance by Sam Smith), and/or an earnest but uninteresting singer-songwriter with nothing but a guitar or a piano (other than Brian Wilson, who remains awesome and is the reason why “One Kind Of Love” is a solid nominee) wrote for just the opening/closing titles and barely anywhere else.

    No, compared to those types of modern movie songs, “Feels Like Summer” is a true collaboration between the film’s composer, an outside composer, and the storytellers and filmmakers that desired for it to play a key role in Shaun The Sheep. It’s played during the opening titles, the credits, and more than twice within the body of the film. And even after all of that…the song both sounds gorgeous and is extremely fun and memorable.

    I get that the HFPA are starf*ckers, but why does every awards group have to be starf*ckers for their Best Original Song categories nowadays? There are actually good film songs out there, and they’re missing out by not nominating any of them. That’s the most unfortunate aspect of it all.

    “Feels Like Summer” from Shaun The Sheep deserves a Best Original Song nomination. It deserves a Best Original Song nomination just as much as Inside Out deserves nominations for Best Original Screenplay and even Best Original Score (if possible). I don’t care if “Feels Like Summer” wins or not at this point; I’m just praying for it to get the nomination.

  4. No Walking Dead or Fear the Walking Dead? Time to ban the Golden Globes since they don’t seem to care about the most popular programs…that REAL people watch. Bye.

  5. Cant believe Sam Heughan from Outlander did not get nominated. He was brilliant. Guess they must have missed part 2 of season 1, where both he and Tobias Menzies gave performances that stayed with us for weeks after. These guys are the trio of the series and its is disgraceful to leave one out. Starting to believe the GG’s are a farce.

  6. It absolutely amazes me that Sam Heughan was NOT nominated for OUTLANDER!!! He was absolutely perfect for that role!! Apparently someone dropped the ball, and did not get the messages on the amount of people watching this show, for the 3 main actors performance!! He is the lead role, and the other 2 get selected, and him not!! This just amazes me!!
