    Not really. What I saw is people listing their personal winners and many of them weren’t the nominees. Here, you have to vote for your personal favorite of the nominated five. It’s limiting and sometimes it’s really hard. Sometimes it’s even pointless because none of the nominees really deserves it.

    Ignore him. If he actually expects people to search out and reply to a thread from 2012 instead of starting a new one….. I cant’………… 

    I rarely have a strong opinion about the Director races, so I’ll just answer for the recent ones that I do have a strong opinion on:
    2011: Terrence Malick – The Tree of Life (not Hazanavicius)
    2008: an award should not have been given based on those 5 nominees
    2004: Martin Scorsese – The Aviator (not Eastwood)
    2002: Stephen Daldry – The Hours (not Polanski)
    2001: David Lynch – Mulholland Drive (not Howard)
    2000: Ang Lee – Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (not Soderbergh)
    1998: Terrence Malick – The Thin Red Line (not Spielberg)
    1996: Joel Coen – Fargo (not Minghella)
    1994: Quentin Tarantino – Pulp Fiction (not Zemeckis)
    1993: Jane Campion – The Piano (not Spielberg)

    Get your head out of your ass. What it the purpose of making a new thread on a topic that has already been covered? It’s so fucking redundant. People get in the same exact fights on this website about the SAME topic because it has been talked about in a thread already made.  Ok fine, I get why this one is different but your 6000 separate threads about the Globes is ridiculous and thankfully aren’t being participated in because it’s already been talked about. Plus it is interesting to go back and look at where users’ opinions changed on a topic if it is older. What ever happened to the shutting down redundant threads? It needs to happen more often
