Happy with a bunch of nominees, especially excited for Lily Tomlin and Paulson’s two nominations but extremely disappointed for Vera Farmiga and Eva Green – I wanted at least one of them to get in.June 16, 2016 at 5:29 am #1201851701
I don’t think it’s a “crazy” prediction, but I think Vera Farmiga will be back for Bates Motel. Fingers fu*king crossed!
Oh, and this one is perhaps batshit but… Lady Gaga being a double nominee! Best Actress Miniseries/Movie & Best Original Music and Lyrics.June 2, 2016 at 6:54 am #1201843496

This thread is the definition of hypocrisy if we go back to page 1 and the announcment of this show. Cringe worthy.
OMG you’re right! People were almost unanimously against this show when it was announced in October 2014, and now they love it. Just goes to show you should never judge a book by its cover.
“Just goes to show you should never judge a book by its cover.”
We judge TV shows – what do we do with people then, for f*cks sake.February 25, 2016 at 5:09 pm #335996
“What else can we do?” Don’t talk s*it about it a year before its premiere, perhaps?
Similar premise? Yeah, sure. And I still don’t get the “problem” with Ryan Murphy – All of his shows have received at least decent reviews, especially when the main focus of the series/TV movie was an important topic aka The Normal Heart. Just because he f*cks around with a TV show called Scream Queens starring Emma Roberts and Ariana Grande doesn’t mean he’ll do the same with something like the O.J. case.February 24, 2016 at 4:26 pm #218087
What’s funny is that Sasha Stone do desperately wants to think she’s a factor in the Oscars and can help shape how Academy members vote.

“Rooney Mara’s award season campaign caused controversy due to the studio’s decision to place her in contention as supporting actress. Cate Blanchett, nominated in the leading category, had 6 minutes less screen time than Mara, clocking in at 65 minutes.”
It is a major fraud but I can’t help it – I still want Mara to win.January 19, 2016 at 5:04 am #211540
This thing should stop. It’s insane.
Jada is bitter but yeah, her hubby Will Smith has two Oscar nominations and he didn’t deserve either. He’s not nominated this year and he doesn’t deserve to be. The performance was dull.
The Academy has responded to the criticism but they kept their mouths shut and did nothing – nothing! – back when voters broke the rules and voted for best picture despite of publically refusing to watch a nominee and had the nerve to advise others not to as well.
Of course, the Academy ignored Mya Taylor who acted circles around Will Smith’s performance but this didn’t get a response. Who cared about that snub?! And it was a huge one.
Nobody has ever made a big deal of gays being snubbed. Was there a response when Ian McKellen lost? Oh, I doubt it.
White guilt and hypocrisy go a long way in Hollywood. All due respect but this is how I see it. I’m an European and I’m not burdened with your baggage. And to me the best way of being a tolerant and open human being is to not care about anybody’s gender, sexual orientation or skin color, not to vote for somebody because of that. And that’s what the community wants. And that’s dangerous. I’m tired of the whole attitude that everybody is oh-so-racist because there are no black nominees.
And by the way, who cares that Jada won’t be at the Oscars?!?
Bless you.January 16, 2016 at 2:51 pm #210366
Amy all the way. Maybe “basic” is the only way to describe choices of those who believe it doesn’t deserve to win.December 14, 2015 at 3:41 pm #202890
Secretly hoping for Cynthia Nixon, but the chances of that happening barely exist.December 10, 2015 at 7:18 am #195952
Blanchett is definitely getting that nomination, I’m not sure why are you even discussing it at this point.December 7, 2015 at 3:44 pm #198157
Note: songs from documentaries are NOT eligible for the Golden Globe.
Are you sure? I was looking at the “consideration” rules and it doesn’t say anything about that.
“2. Original song:
a. Words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the motion
picture. All qualifying songs from a motion picture must be submitted.
b. The Original Song Award is given to the accredited songwriter(s) for the winning song
c. Qualifying songs written specifically for the motion picture may be released separately
(e.g. as part of the movie soundtrack) prior to the release of the motion picture.”
