    Seems like most people are always bashing the Golden Globes for being ridiculous or whatever (and rightfully so at times…). BUT how about those times they make better decisions than the Oscars.

    I have some in mind (at the top of my head) that I could NEVER let go of:

    – Breaking the Waves (motion picture drama)

    – Bjork (Dancer in the dark – drama actress)…even though she won the most imortant one (cannes)

    – Julianne Moore (A single man – supporting actress)

    – Michael Fassbender (Shame – drama actor)

    – Pam Grier (Jackie Brown – musical/comedy actress)

    – Spike Jonze ()Adaptation – director)

    Any thoughts on those films and people that got Golden Globe nominations whereas the Oscars failed to do so…?

    When the Globes awarded Nicole Kidman and Sissy Spacek the Best Actress trophies in 2001 as their performances were both superior to Oscar’s choice Halle Berry.

    Best Picture for The Social Network over The King’s Speech. While both were obviously very good, in 20 years we’re going to look back and wonder how TSN didn’t win. Oh yeah. Havey Weinstein.

    Also, they gave a nomination to Christopher Nolan for Best Director for Inception.

    The Globes are shit. There’s no one that would prefer a Globe to an Oscar, and though there are many Oscar results I disagree with, I’ll still respect them 1000 times more than I ever would the Globes (even when one of their decisions would line up with my own).

    The Globe telecast is always my favorite every season. It’s efficently run and well-executed each year, it doesn’t waste time on musical performances and stupid skits that never work, it gets right to the point and awards trophies.

    Globes are always fun to watch. And I at least respect the fact that they have five extra spots for comedies which are oh so often ignored at the Oscars. And you have to agree that atleast the winner of the Comedy category and most of its nominees/winners have been deserving to say the least.

    And Globes are better than the Critics Choice who so blatantly and shamelessly try to be the Ctr+Copy+Paste of Oscars, right down to each and every category Oscar has, and their choices always reflect not true critical acclaim, but to whom they think Oscar voters will vote. No wonder they nominated EL&IC. What was the BFCA score for that film again?

    I’ll always love the Globes for giving the Comedy wins to Meryl for Adaptation (supporting), The Devil wears Prada and Julie&Julia, the win for Diane Keaton in  Something’s gotta Give, Sally Hawkins in Happy-Go-Lucky and Annette Bening for Being Julia and The Kids are all right.

    Though I really feel bad for Jim Carrey and The Truman Show. He WON the DRAMA Globe and did NOT get nominated! That’s hard!
    I mean it often happens enough with Comedy Globe wins. They not always get nominated. But winning the Drama Globe is imo a guarantee for at least a nom.

    You’re 100% right. Jim Carrey should have been nominated at the very least for “The Truman Show” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. In the latter he impressed me even more than Kate Winslet.

    They have pretty much 50/50 results in both Best Actress and Best Actor categories in terms of winners, despite multiple ties.

    Also, Jim was nominated and won for “Man on the Moon” and was nominated for SAG, but still failed to get Oscar nomination, for some reason they don’t like him and probably will never nominate him, although he deserves at least 1 nomination, if not a win, next to his name.
