    1. I believe Alienware was referring to Best Drama Series category. HUGE oversight! Boss and American Horror Story? Really HFPA? Really? I could see AHS in the Comedy category, I guess.

      Also, was Mad Men not eligible this year?

    2. Come on!!!! OF COURSE THIS AWARD IS A JOKE!!! It’s laughable to everyone except people outside of the business! Sham! The Hollywood Foreign Press??? Why should they be allowed to judge what is good or bad? SHAM!

  1. Until the comment above, I missed Breaking Bad when I went down the list.

    How is My Week With Marilyn a comedy/musical. All I saw in the trailer was drama.

    1. Yeah, such a star fucker’s list…

      the golden globes did use to mean something. now it’s just “who can we get in the room”.

      Spielberg should be embarrassed ‘War Horse’ is getting touted. That’s like the nomination The Tourist got last year.

  2. For T.V. series & Best Actor / so sad not to see “House” and especially Hugh Laurie, who carries that show. H, Laurie is such a
    gifted actor & the show, at one time, was wonderful but the past few
    years the writers have fallen asleep. The scripts are awful. So sad.

  3. No best Drama nod for The Good Wife? GLee is still nominated?!! This doesn’t even make sense. Such a joke. They got it all wrong!!!

      1. So Glee takes the blame for Parks and Rec not getting nominated?! Except for the awful Christmas episode and 3rd season premiere, this season has put its best foot forward. It may not be on par with Parks and Rec’s comedic aspect, but it’s much better than Episodes or Enlightened. I’ve seen Enlightened, and frankly USA’s Psych could’ve taken its place.

        This is the Golden Globes, not the Emmys. And Frankly, even if Glee were nominated for Emmy – Best Comedy Series, it would NEVER win because Glee is not a “pure” comedy like Modern Family or Parks & Rec to begin with. That’s why HFPA lets Glee win Golden Globes last year and the year before.

        Besides, Poehler is a shoo-in for Lead Actress in at the Globes, SAG’s and Emmys 2012, so calm down. P&R has been improving to be a great comedy season after season…it will get nominated, but it will have to face Modern Family to win next year.

  4. I wonder how much Clooney spent to get all these nominations? Good grief. He campaigns more than Obama. Is it me or does CAA own this crap (by that I mean buys each nomination).

    Garbage.

  5. Is there are TV category for best award show host? Cuz that would be awesome if Ricky Gervais won a Golden Globe for hosting last year. Haha.

  6. Zooey Deschanel up for best actress in a comedy? What a joke. She is annoyingly one-note. Cute, maybe. But she is TERRIBLE in “New Girl.” Sadly, this nomination will only encourage her.

      1. You, Sir, have really bad tastes. It seems fair to assume you think other one-note actors are hilarious too. Jim Parsons, Sofia Vergara, Mayim Bialik, etc. and no, this is not a good thing.

  7. so glad to see BOSS get some recognition, of any of the shows that are criminially underrated and needed a push it was that

    1. Hear hear! Best new show on television! Glad the HFPA publicly acknowledged what I’ve been saying to anyone who will listen! And Kelsey Grammar in mind blowing in his performance each week!

    2. Grammer is excellent with what he’s given, but the show throws all the cliches at you…and the writing is melodramatic. It’s fun to watch, but not a great show.

  8. It’s insulting that EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE was snubbed in favor of HUGO and WARHORSE. And it’s a travesty the extraordinary Thomas Horn, the child star of Extremely Loud, wasn’t considered for Best Actor in a Drama. That kid is a revelation!

  9. Yay for Cranston, but where is Aaron Paul’s nomination? Is it becasue he is consedered a “supporting actor”? the guy was amazing this year. And BB not even nominated for Best Drama?

    Clooney, Fey, Baldwin, Allen… give me a break with these no talent libtards.

    1. Yeah, but even if we assume all-cable nominations, they got them all wrong. American Horror Story is FX’s third-best show, behind Justified and Sons of Anarchy, so where are they? And I reiterate the amazement at the lack of Breaking Bad’s best-drama nomination.

  10. Of course there’s no love for COMMUNITY. Perhaps the HFPA was offended by the show’s portrayal of the European Foosball community? I’m very sad. This is definitely the worst timeline.

  11. How is New Girl nominated? Highlarious that it got a nom, but not so much a funny show. Such contrived hipster nonsense. When will it end?

    1. Jim Parsons already had his day in the sun. Johnny Galecki has been doing outstanding work this year. While I love Sheldon and i crack up all the time – You can expect what Sheldon (Jim Parsons) will do Galecki has really upped his game so congrats to him!

  12. I think this is the first year that I don’t completely LOVE at least one of the best picture nominees. I liked them all, but, none particularly stood out among the rest. So there’s that, and…

    THE MUPPETS?! Where are they? The film was both a critical and audience success, and an important one nonetheless. Well I’m less surprised about it not being nominated for best comedy/musical (which it should’ve been), how was Brett McKenzie’s song not nominated? Completely disappointed this year.

  13. Shameless Season 1 (Showtime) got Robbed. William H Macy and Emmy Rossum were fantastic in their roles and both it’s unfortunate because of when it aired it’s not getting enough run. Their performances were dead on.

  14. Stop everything! Why is no one talking about the elephant in the room?
    ANGELINA JOLIE wrote and directed a Golden Globe nominated foreign film??
    Way to get this English dialogue film qualified as foreign by having cast and crew foreign….
