    Surprised that Globes actually picked quality movies in comedy/musical actress! But more surprised that Oprah got snubbed!

    For me, the biggest surprise was Oprah not getting nominated. I assumed she would actually win (not because of the performance, but because of her status).

    The next biggest surprise for me is Greta Gerwig. It’s richly deserved, and she should win, but I thought the HFPA, being the starf*ckers that they are, would have gone for bigger names. I still have no idea how she even got on their radar, to be honest. I assume Scott Rudin may have helped get her name out there.

    I think the surpises in film were great (unlike in tv), specially in the comedy categories (looking at you delpy and gerwig…yayy!)

    Overall these nominations were mostly good.  More room gives space for good or bad…this year I think it was mostly good.

    Of course, Oprah missing was a shock.  These HFPA members nominated The Tourist so Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie would be there.  Every time I watch the live nominations for an award show, I find myself thinking as they are being announced, “OK, who was I expecting?”  Sometimes it takes a second or two to register a snub.  I remember last year hearing the Oscar directing lineup and it took me a moment to realize Affleck and Bigelow weren’t there.  I’m glad The Butler was shut out as a whole…surprising due to Harvey’s pull on the HFPA.  I bet he wasn’t too happy this morning.

    Gandolfini missing—I would’ve liked to see him get in.
    Also Harrison Ford, who has never properly been acknowledged for his work as an actor.  I want to see him win an Oscar.  If he had been in All Is Lost and nailed it, Best Actor would be over, done, no competition.  I guess Barkhad Abdi is happening, and will be an Oscar nominee–good for him!

    I’m totally OK with Hanks missing BSA.  He’s not as great with accents as he would have you believe.  Captain Phillips is the stronger work, and it gives someone else a chance in the category.

    Greta Gerwig and Julie Delpy making it in was great!  Same for Julia Louis-Dreyfus.  THAT’s how you nominated in this category…Thank God The Heat or other comedy crap didn’t push someone in, as per the Globe norm.  And Kate Winslet, though predictable, should not have been nominated.  I will be upset if Meryl wins another Globe.  Now would someone kick her out of the Oscar lineup, please!  17 nominations for one person is ridiculous, enough.  As is any category with five previous winners.

    I’m surprised Scorsese missed Best Director, and Wolf wasn’t nominated for screenplay.  At the Oscars, the screenplay category winners more often than not go to the BP frontrunners/celebrities rather than the best screenplay/best writing.  I have no doubt American Hustle will win original for these reasons.  It would be nice though if Wolf is better (and Hustle is Russell trying to be Scorsese) as I’m led to believe that it gets in these categories at the Oscars.

    Monsters University. The Golden Globes have this rabid love of Pixar, nominating it every film since Cars (even the ludicrious Cars 2 got a nomination). Truly and utterly shocked that Monsters University didn’t make it in

    FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)

    The snubs for Oprah/The Butler are to me, the most shocking. 

    I’m also slightly surprised at the nods for Mandela, a movie almost nobody was talking about.  

    HFPA is such a strange group.

    It is indeed shocking that Oprah missed out, considering who she is, who’s distributing her film, how SAG reacted to her film. And even more shocking is the obscure nominees she lost out to: A character actress for many years finally getting noticed (Squib), a debut performance (Nyong’o), and an actual actress in a supporting role (Hawkins). No one was going to bump out the category-fraudulent movie star (Roberts) or unstoppable it-girl of the new decade (JLaw). Oprah was probably super close to bumping out Hawkins, considering Blue Jasmine under-performed at the Globes.
