    1. SO happy about the Mandy Patinkin nomination! Great news!!!! Homeland will sweep.

      I think the film awards are going to Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty. The Oscars will be a close race between those two movies.

      Christoph Waltz will win supporting actor. He’s the best performance in Django.

    1. Do you even watch Homeland? I seriously doubt it or you wouldn’t have made that comment. I challenge you to name the 25 more deserving.

      1. I agree, Patinkin wasn’t as good this year as he was last season. In fact, the show itself is starting to go off the rails of believability. It’ll win again, but only because of reputation.

        1. Saying he wasn’t as good this year as he was last year is very different than saying there are 25 more deserving actors. Saying that sounds like someone who doesn’t watch the show.

    2. Patinkin is, far and away, the best part of Homeland. And Homeland is the best show currently on television (for me, at least). Mandy Patinkin 150% deserves to win in this category!!

    3. Patinkin is one of the best parts of the show, and his performance should be recognized! I would be curious to see that list of yours….

  1. Paul Thomas Anderson getting snubbed is heartbreaking. He truly is the MVP of the directors field this year. And Django should have been a comedy nomination. SO bummed to see a Best Picture line up that features Lincoln and Argo but not The Master. That just boggles my mind. It’s a highly original and saying masterpiece!

  2. As usual, the Golden Globe nominees are a joke. I guess we can just assume none of the voters watch NETWORK TV, right? ‘Cause the only shows that matter are on pay-cable, eh? Why does anyone even bother with this self-congratulatory, Look-at-me, alleged “awards” show? Oh, that’s right….no one does.

    1. People who watch network TV know better than anybody that its dramas don’t measure up to the best of cable.

      1. And that the fifth season of Mad Men was unworthy of the creative peaks of The Newsroom and Boardwalk Empire…

    2. Jason, I really disagree. The truth is Cable (basic and premium) have surpassed network by a country mile and this is what the Globes are reflecting. When I watch network TV (particularly the dramas) I can’t believe how obvious, unsophisticated and on the nose the writing is. Without great writing, great acting and directing aren’t possible. I have quibbles with the GG pics, but overall think they got it pretty much right. And while we would probably agree that the Globes selection process of less than 100 voters is absurd, the fact is it is generally considered the second most important award in both Film and TV. If it really didn’t matter, why did you bother to comment?

    3. I agree the TV category is a joke. Girls? Really? Would love to have seen Scandal or Touch on the list. Both amazing shows. There is still good stuff on network people!

  3. This is a boring and predictable list. And once again — only ONE BLACK or Minority nominated out of all the pictures that came out this year….no Beasts….sad….Hollywood may be able to nominate and elect a Black president, but it still cannot nominate more than one black actor.
    I’m guessing that Denzel is po’d and won’t be campaigning and won’t show at these events.

    1. Why would Denzel be mad? He was nominated. I haven’t seen all these films to know whether other black actors and actresses are deserving of consideration, but maybe the ones that did get the nod were simply better?

      1. What about Kerry Washington for Django? and Q. Wallis for beasts?

        Since black actresses RARELY get major film roles, this might be the ONLY chance for those ladies to get nominated. All those other women will be nominated over and over, no matter what the quality of their work is. They will always have plenty of roles to show off in.

        And WHERE is Judy Dench and Javier for Skyfall? Skyfall should also be in Best Pic. What a farce.

        Harvey W. wins again for awful SLP. Who’s voting on this.

        1. Q. Wallis isn’t union so she unfortunately is ineligible. This doesn’t mean she won’t have a chance for the Oscars though!

        2. You’re either trolling or being supremely condescending. black actresses don’t need charity, thank you.

    2. Nobody knows that Beast movie/show you’re going on about which is why it didn’t get nominated. There’s enough affirmative action in Hollywood as it is. We don’t need it in awards shows too. Because that’s what you’re suggesting right? Pass over performers who are actually deserving of recognition just because they’re white and toss some nominations to those some undeserving black performers which renders the latter nothing more than tokens which is more insulting and racist than not being nominated at all. Did it ever occur to you that perhaps minorities in Hollywood (of which I’m one btw but I don’t feel compelled to play the professional victim) just need to step up their game in order to be recognized? Oh wait. That would require both talent and work. Can’t have that can we, dear?

    3. So you are saying that they should give charity spot in every category to non-white actor? Because otherwise it’s racism? There will be 4 actors competing and then one non-white like Hill Harper from CSI NY in best drama or Amber Riley from Glee for best comedy actress like in those embarrassing Image awards nominations?

      I think Hill Harper would be embarrassed himself if he would sit opposite Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Jon Hamm, Damian Lewis in best drama category knowing that he sits there only because of charity spot.

      1. Shy and crystal are perfect examples of the racism that still exists. Your assumption that non-white actors are NEVER deserving and that all white actors are always deserving is the reason these awards shows and the industry in general are so monolithically white. And crystal’s ignorant statement that “there’s enough Affirmative Action in Hollywood as it is” would be laughable if it weren’t so hateful. Where exactly is this too much Affirmative Action, because it certainly isn’t on TV where entire broadcast networks have no Black, Hispanic or Asian shows for years at a time. I guess any non-white presence is too much for people like you.

      2. No one is asking for charity you idiots just more open minds. Kerry Washington is a phenomenal actress who has never been nominated; yet she starred opposite two men that did receive Oscars. She was awesome in Django. She is phenomenal in Scandal. And she is just one example. Not only are people closed minded for nominations they are also close minded when it comes to roles that are available. You said that black actors need to step up their game in the parts they choose. Wake up and smell the “system”. All people of color have to fight for every part they get on the screen. The fastest growing minority in this country is Asian followed by Latino. How many mostly Asian or Latino shows or movies do you see? Then sit back and see how many show and movies have mostly all white cast? And 75% of the time whatever “minority” is cast is stereotypical. TV and Films made in this country does not in any way reflect the so called melting pot this country is supposed to be. I defy you to tell me any of these actors/actresses do not deserve an award. And I mean for a LEADING ROLE: Angela Basset, Sophie Okonedo, Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Mackie, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Damian Bichir, Salma Hayek, Catalina Sandino Monreno, Michelle Yeoh, Russell Wong, Viola Davis, Danny Glover, Anil Kapoor, Cicely Tyson, Hector Elizondo, BD Wong, Taraji P. Henson, the list is endless and way overdue. I also wanted to mention that how is it that Phylica Rashad never won for the Cosby Show and Tisha Campbell or Martin Lawrence have never even been nominated. I don’t know about you but those are some talented comedic actors. No person of color has won an Emmy for lead in a drama. The statistics for the other categories are sad for non-whites. When you get a minute go back and check your history books and look at who has won awards over the years, it may surprise you more than you think.

        1. White people in Hollywood don’t have to work to break into the business? Wow. And all white actors get the recognition they deserve? Wow. Obviously you have no idea how the business works and obviously you think, because of the color of your skin, you can blame everyone else for your failures. Grow up.

    1. DeNiro was just ok, playing DeNiro again. The movie was good but not awards quality IMO, I feel that it’s getting the attention it is getting based on the mental illness plot device.

  4. This is what the SAG list should have looked like.. at least McGregor is on it, even if it is for Salmon and not THE IMPOSSIBLE.

    Phoenix wasn’t snubbed here; neither was Amy Adams; and DiCaprio once again likely gets the GG nod, but not the Oscar nod.

  5. no love for Rebel Wilson? should’ve been at least nominated for her performance in Pitch Perfect.

    I’m thrilled for Connie Britton, Hayden Pannetierre (!!!!!!!!!) and Jeff Daniels.. but mostly thrilled for Hayden cause she’s amazing in Nashville (which I think should have been nominated)

  6. - So much love for Newsroom? I heard how everybody hates it and says it’s bad.
    – They do love Kidman in Hollywood. Nomination for Papernoy that everybody hates and then that HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN. Did anybody even saw it? It’s just very quietly showed up and went unnoticed. There was no hype, no talk. And yet Kidman and Owen get nominations for it.
    – I’m surprised there was no Kisten Stewart and Lindsay Lohan among nominees. After Tourist nominations people expect anything from Golden Globes.
    – Surprisingly no Bardem for Skyfall. And he was good villain. He was so good that I felt sorry for him entire time and was angry when that full of himself James Bond defeated him :)
    – No love for Cloud Atlas. Boo. I really liked that movie. Tom Hanks deserved to be among Best Actor nominees.
    – Meryl Streep will now be nominated for any movie?
    – Happy for Jack Black. Bernie was a sweet and nice movie. I liked it.
    – No love for Looper. Sad.
    – Did NEWSROOM just threw out Mad Men from Best Drama? I only heard how bad it was.
    – Connie BRITTON and Hayden PANETTIERE for NASHVILLE? Please. Hayden does not deserve to be nominated for anything. In the same category with MAGGIE SMITH? Embarrassing.
    – Golden Globes are the only awards that love MATT LEBLANC and EPISODES.
    – Surprisingly DANNY HUSTON is seen for MAGIC CITY. Well I’m kind of glad that this show gets any notice.

  7. Adele, Hugh Jackman, Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi and Keith Urban I hope they get to sing on the broadcast. Now that’s a concert I would pay to see and would be the highlight of the show.

  8. This list isn’t great but how weird is it that it’s better than the SAG noms? At least they nominated The Master, Moonrise Kingdom and Rust and Bone. Plus they nominated Rachel Weisz and Joaquin Phoenix for two of the best performances this year.

  9. I’m amazed that the Master got nominated for anything. At least that won’t translate to the Oscars.

    1. Game of Thrones is indeed the best show on television, by far. The reason it got snubbed is that Boardwalk Empire had to be nominated, the HBO quota is stuck at two, and the foreign press want their picture taken with Aaron Sorkin, not Weiss & Benioff, even though their show is extraordinary and his is a joke.

      1. I was going to write a very similar comment re: the HBO quota etc. Game of Thrones really deserves more love.

        At least Moonrise Kingdom got a nod!!!

  10. The entire awards system is meaningless outside the industry. I select my own favorites for my entertainment dollar and/or viewing time.

    1. “The Newsroom” is, of course, overwritten. The first episode didn’t convince me to watch the second.

  11. Would have loved to see Kerry Washington nominated for Scandal. I thought her work in Django was impeccable and deserved a supporting actress nom. Oh well, Next time.

  12. As someone who actually works with Mandy on Homeland I could not think of another actor more deserving of this award. Nobody cares as much and puts as much time and effort in perfecting his role as Mandy does. Seriously I can only imagine this comment is made by someone who has never seen this series and to that I have to say I’m sorry because you are truly missing out.
