2013 Golden Globe nominations: Nicole, Meryl, Cumby & Joaquin!

The Golden Globe nominations are out! Is this the first time that the SAG nominations came out a day before the Globe nominations? Did this happen last year? I forget. Anyway, you can go here to read yesterday’s WTF-ery with the SAG nominations. Surprisingly enough, compared to the SAGs, the Globes seem almost measured and reasonable. Sure, there are some surprises – like Nicole Kidman for The Paperboy AGAIN – but basically this list feels a lot better than the SAG noms. You can read the full list here and here, and here are the biggest categories:

Best Television Drama:
“Breaking Bad”
“Boardwalk Empire”
“Downton Abbey”
“Homeland”
“The Newsroom”

Additional TV nominations that I’m looking forward to: Claire Danes and Damian Lewis for Homeland – it will be interesting to see if Homeland sweeps like it did at the Emmys. Julianna Margulies got nominated for The Good Wife, but the show didn’t get nominated which is rough because it’s one of my favorite shows. AND WTF IS WITH THE LACK OF MAD MEN? No Drama series nomination?!? THE F—K?!? Jon Hamm was nominated for Best Actor, of course, but apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press were NOT impressed with the Megan storyline. I mean, I know how they feel but that’s still really harsh.

For film noms – it’s good to see Joaquin get recognized. I always love to see PSH and I think Tommy Lee Jones might be coming in as the favorite (if you’ve seen Lincoln you know why). Still no nomination for Ewan McGregor’s role in The Impossible though (but he did get one for Salmon Fishing) – and he didn’t get a SAG nom for it either. So I guess his Oscar chances are pretty slim. But what’s with all the love for Naomi Watts? That’s interesting. It’s also nice to see Rachel Weisz get recognition for The Deep Blue Sea – I still haven’t seen it, but I really want to.

Also: BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH GOT A NOM FOR SHERLOCK! *mic drop*

    No Mad Men or Walking Dead but The Newsroom?

  2. Amy says:

    It really ought to say something that none of the directors from the comedy or musical category were nominated. I guess this paves the way for a Bigelow sweep! Love her. …Richard Gere? Oh come on.

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    So happy for Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix and Naomi Watts.
    Also, Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Hawkes, an incredibly talented and vastly underrated actor.

    Good stuff….

  4. lily says:

    Okay, so how many nominations does Meryl Streep have? I think they will give it to her every year LOL !

  5. Dorothy#1 says:

    I have not seen any of these movies!!

    • roxy750 says:

      Me neither, and let me get on a soap box here. The movies I went to go watch over the past year were nice mindless entertainment make me happy kind of movies, that’s what a movie should do right? Spiderman, Avengers, One for the Money, 21 Jump Street, Brave, The Vow–I didn’t say any of these were that great and some outright sucked but I went to be entertained, to laugh and to spend time with my kids, friends whatever, but that’s the crap I go and watch. What’s with all the SUPER SERIOUS, documentary-history-like College professor you need a degree in order to watch these movies that are nominated? I am not describing these well at all, I’m having a bad day, but Hollywood is so full of themselves, it’s sick. I know I know, it’s not a news alert. I am sure all the movies nominated were great serious, heart wrenching, so like the real thing great movies but c’mon, lighten up! What about us common folk that make up 95 percent of the people watching the movies? Why is it the 5 percent are the ones nominating these people and movies? Ugh, nauseating. Ok, done.

  6. Jenna says:

    Eh. The award shows kind of bore me lately. And of course some really good movies, actors and programs were left out.

    That being said, I kinda hope Sally Fields wins everything for ‘Best Supporting Actress’. :P

  7. I'mSupposedToBeWorking says:

    I love Downton Abbey, but season 2 was weak and soapy! Mad Men, on the other hand, whether you like Megan or not, was much better that Downton!

    • Mia 4S says:

      Thank you on Downton Abbey! It’s coasting on its first season and Christmas Special. Season 3 improved…but not by much.

      Overall though the nominations aren’t too bad. There is no “Tourist” nomination that I can see. Oh but that Taylor Swift song from Hunger Games was horrendous, wtf? That’s a “just get the star to the show nod”. If they wanted to honor the soundtrack they should have done with “Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire.

  8. Harpreet says:

    I really wish Javier and Judi Dench were nominated for Skyfall.

  9. Ranunculus says:

    I am all for Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman winning. I thought The Master was an astonishing movie. Along with Holy Motors the best I saw this year, of course non of these dumb f**ck jurors had the decency to nominate either Holy Motors nor the brilliant Denis Lavant.

  10. Nanea says:

    I wonder when people will finally catch up with the fact that the HFPA is not *the* foreign press. It’s a group of ~ 80 moochers who will nominate and vote for everyone people like e.g. Harvey W. suggest to them, as long as they get freebies from the studio bosses and photo opps with their favorite stars…

    Sadly the AMPAS members are too lazy to come up with their own ideas and often just copy&paste the GG nominations.

  11. marie says:

    meh, I don’t watch the show but I do like to look at the pictures of what they wear..

  12. Jazz says:

    No Lindsay Lohan for Liz & Dick? Travesty! :P :P :P

  13. normades says:

    Phew! Much better than the SAGs!

    I have no desire to see that Tsunami film, but I read Watts is really good in it.

    JLaw will def get the comedy/musical Globe but I really want Weisz/Watts or Chastain to win the Oscar. I have no JLaw hate, it’s just too soon.

    I think DDL has the Oscar for best male pretty much wrapped up at this point, but I hope Hugh gets the Globe for the comedy/musical category. I love me my Joaquin, but he seems unwilling to play.

    The best supporting actress category seems pretty weak. Please let it be Adams! Hathaway’s acceptance speach would be absolutely insufferable.

    • Eve says:

      “I love me my Joaquin, but he seems unwilling to play.”

      In a way, that makes me love him even more :) .

      Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see him winning an Oscar, but if what it takes to win is campaigning, pandering to people he hates, lowering himself? Better not. I’d HATE to see him behaving like Natalie Portman, for example.

      • normades says:

        Hey Eve! *waves*

        Problem is, he keeps backtracking. He makes those “Oscars are shit” comments, than goes all “I didn’t mean it that way, I owe a lot to these awards blah blah blah”.

        I think he’s just a beautiful mess and doesn’t know what he wants *sigh*. He wants his career back, but doesn’t want the bullshit. Unfortunately he needs to make a little effort to stay in the game.

      • Eve says:

        Actually, I don’t feel like he backpedalled (you’re free to disagree though).

        He didn’t exactly change what he said, he didn’t claim to have been “misquoted”. He basically explained what he meant in a more diplomatic way (and it convinced me).

        P.S.: he already has his career back. As I said once here on CB, a talent like his cannot be wasted. It was only a matter of time for him to come back. And, let’s face it, playing the game never seemed to be his thing.

      • normades says:

        I think he totally backpedalled!

        Eve, you need to see “I’m still here”. If anything you see what a mess he is and how he is totally entitled and hyper sensitive.

        ***spoilers*** two scenes that stuck out were when he’s going to Obama’s inaugural ball or something and he’s stuck in DC traffic in a cab. He goes on a rant how “Tobey and Leo are on a jet and we’re stuck in a f*ckig cab”. Second, after his Letterman stint he goes off to cry in embarrassment. JP and Casey can say it was all fake and scripted now, but I call BS. Those rants were real.
        I really think he has a hard problem dealing with his celebrity-dom. He wants the career, he wants people to love him, but hates the bs. He probably kisses Weinstein’s ass like everyone else and then hates himself for it. He hasen’t made peace with himself like someone like Angelina. She accepts the celebrity-dom and works with it.
        He has said that he and Casey had big fights about the film and I think they regret it now. I think they thought it would be taken like a Borat-esque joke and it all backfired.
        There are a lot of talented actors in hWood. If JP still has a career it’s because he also has mad love from his fans and connections with powerful directors/producers. He can have the A list career if he wants it, but he needs to play a little. He won’t get a third chance.
        It’s poor Casey who has suffered the biggest blow. He was borderline A list, now he just looks like an Ahole who will be condemded to lesser projects and supporting roles. B- for life imo.
        That’s just my take on it. Stupid speculation and tl;dr!

      • Ranunculus says:

        I watched an interview with a respected journo recently and he mentioned that the last time somebody won an Oscar without campaigning was 35 years ago. I don’t know if it was as blatant some years ago as it is now but yeah the N Portmans, B Afflecks and A Hathaways really make me boycott their movies.

      • Eve says:

        @ Normades:

        We’ll have to agree to disagree then. The man is a brilliant actor — and if he says he’s playing a character, I believe him (yes, I think that he’s *THAT* good, so good he can convince anyone that his mental breakdown was for real).

      • Eve says:

        @ Normades:

        I forgot to add that I do agree with you about him not being at peace with his stardom and celebrity status.

        But I’m not sure I want him to change and become a player, you know? I don’t want him to become something like Johnny Depp (even though I still like Depp), making millions but complaining about the taxes he has to pay for being a millionaire, trying to look “casual” when we can clearly see every single one of the things he’s dressing was carefully picked to make him look “casual”.

      • Miss M says:

        @Eve: off topic…Your former brother-in-law (Chris Evans’s brother) was arrested + charged trying to buy coke off an undercover officer. It’s on tmz…He pled not guilty.

      • Eve says:

        Yeah, I saw that a while ago (that he had been arrested). To be honest, I know very little about him — only that he’s openly gay (and Evans supports him) and that he plays minor roles on TV.

        From what you’ve just said, it doesn’t look good for him.

  14. Birdie says:

    I am so freaking happy for Benedict Cumberbatch! The rest, I don’t really care now.

  15. Alli says:

    PLEASE let Benedict win. I want to see Tumblr crash and burn for 10 minutes.

  16. T.C. says:

    The Deep Blue Sea was not good at all which was disappointing.

    • Eve says:

      Agreed. As much as I love Rachel Weisz, that movie was unbearable.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Funny you should say that because I’ve been in 2 minds about watching it, I checked on RT and it was 79%. Is it a case of good performances in an overall bad film or is the whole thing just a mess?

      • Eve says:

        Tracking’s comment (# 24) sums it up pretty well. I don’t even know if it’s a bad movie…all I know (for sure) is that it bored me to tears.

        About the performances…please don’t kill me for saying this (or you, Ms Kay, if you’re reading this), but I think Hiddleston kind of overacted — at least during some scenes. There’s a scene where he shouts “OH, MY GOD! How I hate being tangled up in other peoples’ emotions” that made me cringe a little.

      • Jo says:

        Agreed on Hiddlestone’s overacting.. he was a bit all over the place and Rattigan has a way of making you hate the characters. Rachel’s Hester isn’t at all sympathetic, she did a good job but it just wasn’t compelling enough for me to care too much. It strives for depthness but falls short along the way. Nonetheless for all its shortcomings, I quite enjoyed it. You just can’t care for any of the characters with the exception of her husband.

        As for the critics… they make or break the movies but nowadays, they’re opinions tend to be irrelevant because if you read as many as I do, you notice how they jump on the bandwagon and all sound the same more or less. With the added snark of course. Some of them are in the wrong line of business. Sure most of the movies are bad but if you wanted to be a satirist, you should do satire, not pollute your reviews with all your other frustrations. Whatever, can of worms alarm, lol.

        And god forbid, should any of them piss off the great genius that is Harvey. I mean come on SLP? It’s the same with The Deep Blue See – though there I give credit to Rattigan (he’s one of the few who can stir such compelling though negative emotions) – the characters don’t do it for me. If with Weisz’s Hester I’m put off because she’s unsympathetic and Hiddlestone’s Freddie is just immature, juvenile and boisterous as par with the character, with Lawrence’s Tiffany and Cooper’s Pat, I can’t care at all. What they say is profoundness, I just find uni-dimensional. Overall SLP is one big caricature posing as something else. And to add insult to injury, I don’t like David O. Russell either. He’s what I call a poser director… Oh look at me… I’m so overrated.

        The same with Harvey’s French movie, Intouchables… can you believe it has more ground to win than Haneke’s Amour or any of the other foreign movies… Sure, it’s cute, but it just isn’t that great overall… You’ve seen it times and times again only now’s in French and it’s distributed by Weinstein and henceforth, it’s brilliant. No, no, no.

      • Lucrezia says:

        I’d say it’s simply not an enjoyable story. It’s not a big cathartic tragedy, where you can cry your heart out, but still be glad you watched it; DBS is instead kind of small, gritty and miserable.

        But it’s *supposed* to be that way, so I wouldn’t call it a mess. It’s something you can respect as valid art, while not enjoying the actual story-line at all.

    • T.Fanty says:

      Coming out of lurkdom to say that I actually thought Wiesz was phenomenal in The Deep Blue Sea. The biggest problem was that they were filming Rattigan, which is generally as dry as Kaiser’s pre-Cumby thighs.

    • Ranunculus says:

      Deep Blue Sea was actually pretty boring – nothing special at all. R Weisz is pretty boring to me as an actress, maybe not as boring as her husband but I don’t know, I don’t get the hype about her.

  17. Valerie says:

    The only movie I’ve seen on here is Salmon Fishing… And it wasn’t great. It was the only movie playing on my 6 hr flight.

  18. Nessa says:

    Not sure I understand the love for Jennier Lawrence. She gave a good performance in SLP, but she always gives good performances. She wasn’t outstanding.

    And, I love me some Meryl, but really?

    I’m glad Amy Adams was on this list.

  19. Melissa says:

    The TV noms are really weak. Excited to watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host, though.

  20. Talie says:

    That Mad Men snub has to sting for Jessica Pare and Matt Weiner.

  21. booboocita says:

    Nothing for “Beasts of the Southern Wild” or the amazing Quvenzhane Wallis. My disappointment knows no bounds. And how did they pass on “Sherlock,” but nominate the hysteria-fest called “The Newsroom?”

  22. emmie_a says:

    I am a HUGE Mad Men fan but this past season was the worst. They focused too much on (boring) Megan, which led to less of a focus on more interesting characters and storylines.

    I’ve never even heard of a tv comedy called “Episodes” – I’ll have to look that up.

    • normades says:

      +1. I still love and watch MM but it really lost it’s mojo this season.

    • Máiréad says:

      I like Episodes, it stars Matt le Blanc as “himself” in a comedy being rewritten for the American market (i.e. being dumbed down into stupidity) by the screenwriters played by Stephen Mangan <3 and Tamsin Greig, who are known for Channel 4 comedies such as Black Books, Green Wing and Friday Night Dinner and Stephen played Adrian Mole in one of the recent televisations. I think it was probably original a sale to people like myself who loved the original double-act in "Green Wing" (watch it if you can, it is completely bonkers – Im fairly sure it's on Netflix in the US).

      The first series was more interesting in many ways, but the second was more enjoyable.

      EDIT: when I mean dumbed down, I mean they are doing it as comment on how little credit networks give to the average US audience member.

  23. tracking says:

    I love Rachel Weiz, but couldn’t get through 10 mins of Deep Blue Sea (which is on Netflix streaming btw). It seemed like a more turgid, bloated version of End of the Affair. But maybe I wasn’t in the right frame of mind, will try again.

  24. Kaboom says:

    Directors and best supporting male look interesting. Couldn’t care less about the TV dramz, they are all trying too hard to be award fare.

  25. Mira says:

    Yaah for Joaquin although I don’t care about the GG unless Ricky Gervais is hosting. But, seriously, no PTA, The Walking Dead and Mad Men. WTF??

  26. Lindsey says:

    Girls and Smash were nominated? Were they just grasping at straws or all the comedy/musicals really that terrible that this is the wheat that’s been separated from the chaff?

  27. Andrea says:

    I guess I dont know how nominations work, how can les miserable be nominated already? Didnt it just come out? Its not even released here in Canada yet.

  28. Amy says:

    I saw Salmon Fishing in the Yemen on a flight, I don’t remember it ever being in theaters and I had such a hard time remembering the title! It wasn’t bad, but it was kind of a weird concept. Emily Blunt and Ewan MacGregor were both pretty great in it!

    And I think Tommy Lee Jones did a better job in Hope Springs, I just saw that On Demand (I saw Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis was great but overall I didn’t think it was a fantastic movie). My mother got really excited because she recognized where the movie was filmed, in Stonington, CT. Meryl Streep was also great, but I thought it was Steve Carrell who stole the show as the psychiatrist!

    Out of the movies nominated on this list, I still want to see Les Mis, Silver Linings Playbook, and Life of Pi.

  29. jj says:

    No beasts of the southern wild?! What??! That was probably one of the best films i’ve seen in a while

  30. Lisa says:

    I’m happy to see Denzel nominated for “Flight,” but I am disappointed the movie didn’t get nominated for either Best Picture or Best Director. Yes, Washington was the center of it, but the film itself was also very well done. The way those turning point scenes quietly built into powerful moments was something special. Maybe it will make it onto the Academy’s list.

  31. Jo says:

    No Kiera.. either… I mean sure the critics didn’t like the decor but her performance was acclaimed. And why is Rachel Weisz eligible? And Blunt and Ewan for the Salmon Fishing. It’s a 2011 movie. Same with the Deep Blue See – it was on TV two months ago. And I like Rachel just fine but come on, you snub them in 2012 and you nominate them in 2013 for the same movies… I get the members of HFPA are old… but this is bordering on senile.

    As for Nicole – I liked her a lot but since 2004 she didn’t make one single decent movie with the exception of Rabbit Hole.

    • sweetpea says:

      Rachel’s The Deep Blue Sea was released in the US in 2012. So yeah the movie is eligible for consideration.

      • Jo says:

        Yeah… I know, I remember she was at Jon Stewart promoting it in March… since when are Spring releases award contenders? That’s what I find more strange… and I’m being rhetorically sarcastic.

        Please, if I was cynical and I am… they nominated her because HFPA wants Mister and Misses Bond on the red carpet. Otherwise they could’ve cared less for her.

      • LAK says:

        @Jo – on a serious note, the deadline to fulfill criteria to qualify for a GG nomination is 2nd November. DEEP BLUE SEA qualifies on timeframe criteria as it was released within the 3rd November 2011-2 November 2012 time frame for 2013 awards.

        FYI – Oscars deadline is 25th December.

        Most savvy studios tend to hold back their releases until closer to closing date criteria because those films will be fresher in the voters minds.

      • Jo says:

        Thanks… I know, I know, was being overly theatrical. I’m not debating the movie’s eligibility but Deep Blue See was never in the spotlight – aside Rachel’s Holywood Reporter Round Table, where she doesn’t even get to mention her role or whatever, critical approval, and last year’s British awards nominations, it flew completely under the radar. Even the reclusive The Sessions got some buzz but with Deep Blue See and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, it’s like they picked them out of nowhere.

        Like they couldn’t nominate Ewan for The Impossible cuz they already filled the slots but Ewan is campaigning hard and after so long, he deserves a nod. And with Rachel, well as I said she’s Misses Daniel Craig now and Skyfall was such a hit, they should give it a nod somehow. And Rachel is great but since The Fountain, she’s had more misfires than hits which is a pity cuz she’s too good to be in a string of underwhelming movies. Aside Brothers Bloom, that was great too. Deep Blue See I liked, Salmon Fishing, I thoroughly enjoyed even though Emily Blunt usually doesn’t do it for me, she’s got a stiff way of acting, like her face is stuck on an emotionless default setting. She’s a good actress but also overrated for my money.

        And as far as studios go, I totally agree… but you can’t compare the main contenders with these ones. There was hardly any sort of marching band for them. *cough* Les Mis *cough*

      • LAK says:

        Jo – I hear you, but alot of campaigning goes on behind closed doors that isn’t as public as LES MIS. And publicity of that kind would be unwelcome. You get exclusive events that either don’t make it into the press or appear to be about something else entirely eg Jlaw and B. Cooper had an exclusive meet and greet for SILVER LININGS in Paris during fashion week. Those kinds of events only get publicised when a tabloid star is working them eg Clooney or Pitt. It’s this type of event that Joaquin Pheonix was complaining about because it is literally a job interview situation with various voters, without the tabloid BS.

        That’s why Harvey is so good at campaigning. He really knows how to do closed door schmoozying and wins the statue from bigger bombasting public campaigns like LES MIS.

      • LAK says:

        Just to add – did you notice the low key screening Angelina Jolie had for THE IMPOSSIBLE in London last month? That was also a closed door event. Didn’t work for Ewan, but Naomi Watts received a nod.

        one wcould argue back and forth which approach works better but given the success rate of the more dedicated low key closed door affairs vs LES MIS, i think the others win out and why Harvey keeps beating them at this game without spending as much money as they do on marketing.

      • Jo says:

        When referring to Les Mis, I didn’t have in mind the campaigning issue per se, I was thinking about a premiere, any type of premiere which was at best low key. I get what you’re saying, I’m not contradicting you but come on you’ve heard of SLP and The Master since Cannes, they’ve built of buzz from themselves all along. Even Tom Hardy could’ve gotten a nod for Lawless, if we’re thinking of Weinstein.

        And honestly I’m glad both of them are nominated.

        But please as far as Harvey is concerned, subtle is last word I’d use in describing his style. Some years his movies are great and some years, they’re just overrated. He’s a miss-match as far as actually good movies go.

        Also as far as Les Mis go, well musicals have always been seen as the underdog, so they overcompensate or at least Anne overcompensates, Hugh’s pretty zen, lol. But with Les Mis as well as with Anna Karenina, it’s like everybody went seeing them with preconceived ideas which is fine cuz they’re classics but I think they went a bit overboard with all the criticism. Oh the decor changes, it takes away from the performance… oh please.

        So yeah, it’s a matter of taste but in the end, the most popular is going to win. And the subtle campaign as you say with Harvey, is no better than the “in your face one”. It’s still lobby over talent as far as I’m concerned.

      • May says:

        Weisz nomination didn’t come out of nowhere. She won last week the New York Film Critics Circle Award. And the reviews for the movie are not mediocre. TDBS has a metascore of 82 which is good.

  32. bns says:

    Yay for Joaquin Phoenix and Rachel Weisz, but no Robert De Niro, Javier Bardem or Emmanuelle Riva? Hmm.

    And I like Meryl, but I am so sick of her being nominated just because.

  33. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Awesome nom list. I’m looking forward to watching the Globes this year, yay.

  34. ssa says:

    I saw Deep Blue Sea because I love Rachel Weiz, but omg was that movie unbearably bkring. I actually fell asleep, and I never do that! I usually just turn the movie off but this one didn’t even give me a chance, the boredom struck me like a 2 by 4 and I was helpless.

  35. ssa says:

  36. LAK says:

    KON-TIKI. yes! Another Skarsgard to drool over.

    I am rarely disappointed by the foreign language films.

  37. .. says:

    Great to see Joaquin Phoenix nominated. An enormous talent who honestly refuses to play the awards game.

  38. Nittfox says:

    I will say it once and again. I know that Cumberbatch is loved because he’s goregous to people, but the reason to watch Sherlock was completely Martin Freeman. Without his version of Watson, Cumby is overwrought and irritating.

    Remember that actors/actress are judge base on their performance, it’s not about best movie or if you liked it. I don’t like The Deep Blue Sea either but I thought RW did an excellent job portraying this character. The reviews of this movie are mediocre but it’s Rattigan. What most critics agreed upon was RW’s acting in the movie as an excellent performance or what got them through the movie- which is not def for everyone. You can be correct that it helps to be the spouse of DC and there may be a bonus for nomination but it’s annoying to just disregard her talent when it’s been clearly noted for this performance. Ralph Finnes even wrote a special consideration for RW’s performance in this movie.

    As a Canadian I am a little incensed by the fact Argo is getting nominated and mentioned. It’s grossly inaccurate and completely downplayed Ambassador Taylor’s involvement in the hostage crisis. In fact Affleck even had to go back and make some lazy ass edit to remove a pretty awful assertion that the CIA did all the work and Taylor just took all the credit in the end. Which was not the case at all.

    Lameness abounds and I cannot believe GoT didn’t get a nomination. !!!!
