2012 Golden Globe Film Nominations: Artist, Help, Ryan Gosling Score Big

The nominations are out for the 69th Golden Globe Awards, and they favored pretty much everyone front-and-center in the awards race to date, with the requisite snubs, surprises and other laughable curios (they had to wedge War Horse in there somewhere, right?) with which Ricky Gervais will no doubt have a fine time on Jan. 15.

    The Best Pic - Drama noms seem a little...softball, even for the Globes.

  • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

    How so? This seems like a list most people can live with; they even added a sixth slot for _Ides_! It's hilarious if nothing else...

  • zzzz... *mumble mumble* goddamn tree of life *mumble mumble*... zzzz...

  • AS says:

    Very pleased to see The Ides of March receive the recognition it deserves. Unfortunately, Philip Seymour Hoffman continues to get snubbed. But nice to see Viggo Mortenson on the list. Drive & Dragon Tattoo have been snubbed again but I'm happy to see Rooney Mara get nominated.
    Also, someone should probably tell the Globes that My Week with Marilyn is not a comedy or a musical.

  • The WInchester says:

    Haven't you seen that trailer? My Week With Marilyn is most certainly a comedy.
    Maybe not an INTENTIONAL comedy, but...
    Also, even though I haven't seen it, I'm certain there's no way the score to W.E. is better than Drive. But I know it's the Globes and they want Madonna there. Surprised no Angelina Jolie Best Director nomination.

  • AS says:

    Hey, I thought Marilyn was a good movie, say what you want.

  • NP says:

    I think my imagination was running wild pre-caffeine-ingestion. This is exactly right.

  • Me, too! I had a blast.
    And Winchester, Jolie got the nod in Foreign-Language Film, so she and Brad will be there with bells on as usual.

  • The WInchester says:

    Truth be told, I haven't seen it. The idea of watching it feels like homework or making a salad: something I should do but prefer not to.
    But the trailer with the 8,000 fade to blacks made me think it's one of those wry British comedies that Americans don't really understand until they remake them with.

  • Andrew11 says:

    Really? Out of all the Oscar hopefuls I've seen (that is, the shoe-ins), The Ides of March was probably the most disappointing. Or maybe it was because I had such high expectations for it, given what an outstanding cast it has. Gosling is really the only deserving one in that regard.
    And, as I'm sure has been noted plenty of times, the genre divide (drama and comedy/musical) just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

  • AS says:

    I highly recommend giving it a second chance. It really is one of the better films to come out this year. High expectations can ruin everything, which is why I'm really worried about being disappointed by Dragon Tattoo, since I've been anticipating the thing for well over a year now.

  • AS says:

    If nothing else, its worth watching for Williams, Branagh and Dench's performances alone.

  • Miranda says:

    How was Emma Stone snubbed?
