Nothing gets our forum posters out of bed and debating quite like the Golden Globe nominations. While some bids have them screaming with joy, others have them howling with outrage. And let’s not even get started on some of those shocking snubs. Below is just a sampling of their cheers and jeers for the 14 film categories. Take a look, then jump in if you dare:
Best Film Drama
Greg: I’m pretty sure “Little Women” will be nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay and (maybe) Best Director even with these Globe snubs.
Film expert: Surprisingly very strong support for “Joker” here, I thought the tea was they didn’t like it very much.
Best Film Comedy/Musical
tom92: Even the Golden Globes didn’t want to be associated with “Cats”
Brayden Fitzsimmons: Damn it, “Hustlers” couldn’t even get in here of all places. It really is the new “Wild” (2014).
Best Film Drama Actress
FreemanGriffin: No Lupita! Just as I expected, it’s Toni Collette all over again!
linecelts: Yeap…….. They snubbed Lupita Nyong’o 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁
Best Film Drama Actor
nevkm: Happy for Pryce. Everyone thought he was over.
Hammad Asif: Christian Bale ahead of Adam Sandler and Robert De Niro doesn’t make sense atm.
fvg627: Apparently De Niro said something that pissed off the globes a few years back? Is that true? And if so could that be why he missed? It just seems bizarre that Christian Bale took his place, when “Irishman” hit everywhere else (including twice in supporting) and “FvF” missed everything else.
Best Film Comedy/Musical Actress
Jays: Blanchett getting nominated for that is such a joke, especially when they had the other “Booksmart” actress right there. Dever deserved better.
Best Film Comedy/Musical Actor
LLLhawks: Prayers for Taron Egerton
Best Film Supporting Actor
Hammad Asif: Willem Dafoe snubbed too, absolutely gutted right now. Man, globes are really populist.
Best Film Supporting Actress
M: The Original: Kathy Bates b**ches!
Hinrich689: Zhao Shuzhen and Florence Pugh are snubbed too
LLLhawks: Welcome back, Annette Bening
Best Film Director
fvg627: Todd Phillips in director???!!
abelfenty: Todd Phillips in director over Noah Baumbach…the stench.
Best Film Screenplay
John Berchmans: 4/5 on Screenplay as well. “The Two Popes,” “OUATIH,” “Marriage Story,” “Parasite,” and “The Irishman.” No “Jojo” though. That’s very surprising. I may have overestimated that film after all. Also holy crap do they love “The Two Popes!”
Best Film Score
FreemanGriffin: Shocked by the score nomination for “Motherless Brooklyn”
Best Foreign Language Film:
Lil Tony: “Atlantics” will still get the Oscar though. “The Farewell” isn’t eligible there and doubt they pick “Pain and Glory”
Best Animated Film
tom92: So Lion King isn’t a live action remake?
