2016 Golden Globe film nominations: who got recognized & who got snubbed?


Note: I’m splitting up today’s Golden Globe nominations into two posts, one for the TV nominations and one for the film nominations. These are the film nominations. You can see the full list of Golden Globe noms here.

The SAG nominations were posted yesterday – go here to see. The SAG noms were sort of all over the place, but the Globes get to recognize more people because they split up the movie nominations into Comedy/Musical and Drama. Still, I’m SHOCKED by the lack of acting nominations for Spotlight, and my only explanation is that everyone in that movie is so good, they’re canceling each other out for nominations. I’m also shocked that Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo are somehow undeserving of nominations and yet… Amy Schumer is? Here are the film nominations:

Best Comedy/Musical
The Big Short
The Martian

Best Drama
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Revenant

Best Director
Todd Haynes, Carol
Alejandro Innaritu, The Revenant
Tom McCarthy, Spotlight
George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road
Ridley Scott, The Martian

Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical
Christian Bale
Steve Carrel
Matt Damon
Al Pacino
Mark Ruffalo, Infinitely Polar Bear

Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical
Jennifer Lawrence
Melissa McArthy
Amy Schumer
Maggie Smith
Lily Tomlin, Grandma

Best Actor in a Drama
Bryan Cranston
Leonardo DiCaprio
Michael Fassbender
Eddie Redmayne
Will Smith

Best Actress in a Drama
Cate Blanchett
Brie Larson
Rooney Mara
Saoirse Ronan
Alicia Vikander

Best Supporting Actress
Jane Fonda
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Helen Mirren
Alicia Vikander
Kate Winslet

Best Supporting Actor
Paul Dano
Idris Elba
Mark Rylance
Michael Shannon
Sylvester Stallone

Best Screenplay:
The Big Short
Steve Jobs
The Hateful Eight

Big ups to Melissa McCarthy and Spy – it didn’t even occur to me that the film would be a contender, but for my money, that was Melissa’s funniest film ever. I still can’t believe Kate Winslet is being nominated all over the place for Steve Jobs. I can’t believe Alicia Vikander scored TWO nominations. I’m happy to see Sylvester Stallone get a nom for Creed (yay!). I’m happy Will Smith is coming to play, and I wouldn’t be disappointed at all if Leonardo lost some accolades to Will Smith, Eddie Redmayne or Michael Fassbender. Also: Johnny Depp got snubbed! So sad. You can see the full list of nominations here.

Also: YAY IDRIS ELBA. He walked away with multiple noms as well, in TV and film.

    I’m happy they have Idris Elba in the supporting category-I think that gives him a better shot of winning and he really should. Kate Winslet has become one of those actors who gets nominated for everything, whether it was a great performance or not.

    • Katydid04 says:

      Yep. Didn’t she get nominated last year too for that awful Labor Day movie?

      Lets just hope that the Oscars aren’t paying attention and think they need to nominate her this year…….

    • miki says:

      YEYEYYYY QUEEN ALICIA VIKANDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      Idris! I’m also happy that Stallone got a nomination too & Alicia Vikander getting two noms damn
      I’m sure that for Best Actress those 5 are going to be locked in for the Academy awards. Best Actor is still up in the air this is award season is getting interesting.

    • annaloo. says:

      I just saw Beasts of No Nation this week.. …That movie is beautiful, tragic, total headmesser… :-/

    • jammypants says:

      “Kate Winslet has become one of those actors who gets nominated for everything, whether it was a great performance or not.”

      I feel that way about Jennifer Lawrence. I feel she is so overrated.

      • Golden says:

        Both Kate and Jennifer are waaaay overrated. Kate can’t emote with her eyes and Jennifer is always Jennifer and David O Russell is such an over-writer when it comes to characterisation. And the Joy trailer is so awful for the gun bits alone.

      • Ally8 says:

        Kate Winslet in Sense & Sensibility is forever stupendous.

      • Golden says:

        Totally agree. S&S was her peak and it’s been downhill from there.

  2. Tapioca says:

    The Martian. Comedy/Musical. Okaaaay…

    Alicia Vikander will be insufferable from now on and I am very much looking forward to her future interviews. :)

    • D says:

      I was just about to comment the same thing – The Martian in Comedy/Musical, what? :) I mean it did have quite a few funny moments but I wouldn’t really call it a comedy.

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        @D, who wrote: “I was just about to comment the same thing – The Martian in Comedy/Musical, what? I mean it did have quite a few funny moments but I wouldn’t really call it a comedy. ”

        It was 20th-Century Fox’s best chance of getting the film nominated for a Golden Globe. Quite frankly, I laughed more while watching “The Martian” than I have while watching some comedies. :)

    • notasugarhere says:

      Maybe they thought they’d have better luck at a nomination in the comedy category, instead of going against the others in the Drama one?

  3. Dani2 says:

    YAS to Alicia Vikander’s double nom, and I was very surprised to see Jennifer and Joy turn up here despite the mostly negative reviews for the film.

    And YAS for Daddy Idris’ double nom :)

    Very happy for Saoirse and Brie as well, super pleased for Mark Rylance as well and I’m hoping that this is finally Leo’s year – no one has ever wanted an Oscar as much as him.

    • Miss V says:

      The Globes always nominate people they know will bring in viewers (remember Angelina Jolie’s nom for The Tourist?!). So, it’s no surprise J. Law is on the list.

      I think Alicia Vikander is so bland. Like, she is so so sooo beautiful… But also very forgettable. I have not seen Tha Danish Girl yet, though.

      • Minxx says:

        I know! She has as much personality as a wet towel but she’s working the circuit VERY hard. And obviously, her HW strategy pays off. But this is GG – everyone knows how those nominations are scored. I would like to see where she will be 5 years from now.

      • Evyn says:

        I agree. She’s just another Rooney Mara. An actress that’s always talked, but no one knows who she is.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I think Alicia is a great actress and after watching her interview with Anne Thompson, I don’t think she’s bland or snooty. I found her engaging, thoughtful and down to earth. I have no issues with her ambition either. Like Chastain’s sudden rise a few years ago, I think she’s here to stay.

      • Cee says:

        I liked her A LOT in Ex Machina and in the danish film Royal Affair. I don’t find her to be such a beauty, but very generic and I think that suits her fine as an actor.

      • Guest says:

        I honestly do not get the hate towards Alicia here… Why? Because she had the balls to say before that she will be at the Oscars? Guess what? She was right. She is talented, beautiful, classy and seems decent. I prefer her over that annoying thing called Jlaw any time and in any world. She will stick around ladies. Get used to it. And hopefully keep dating Fassbender too. It is just funny how people always assume that she needs him. That girl was in how many movies? And Ex machina has been in all Most anticipated movies 2015 long before she started to kiss Fassbender in public. As for Redmayne: the guy is down to earth but I do not need to see him every year there. Feel sorry for Keaton and Depp.
        Again. Totally agree with you. As usual…..

      • Farhi says:

        Agree. People here say they don’t like Alicia because she is not likeable, they don’t know why.
        I find her likeable, she is not loud or vulgar or in your face. She is classy.
        It is OK, people don’t have to like the same things or people. There are probably plenty of people who like her, just not on CB.
        I am also surprised at Depp and Keaton not being nominated.

    • Miss M says:

      YAY, indeed! I think she is very talented!

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Not surprised at all. The Globe nominations have always been about popularity and getting an audience to watch the show. People watch Jennifer. The surprise here is no Depp. The Globes have always fawned over him in the past. His star is really fading

      • Kitty says:

        It’s got nothing to do with the status of Depp’s star, he still got a SAG nom. The Globes are a joke.

      • Barb says:

        More like they didn’t nominate him for a worthy performance this time because they became more of a joke for nominating him for The Tourist years ago.

        They snubbed Angelina Jolie last year too, did that mean her star’s fading?

      • nicole says:

        I was very surprised Johnny didnt get a nomination, I havent seen the film but he looks really good in it, and did a total transformation on his looks. I think it is going to be Leonardo’s year, which is ok with me, I think his time has come and he deserves it. I hope my fellow Irish do well, loved Saoirse in Brooklyn, really good film. Didnt see Michael Fassbender in Jobs, but he is a good actor in most things. Would love to see Carol, it looks like a really good film, and Cate Blanchett is always watchable.

      • iheartjacksparrow says:

        @Kitty – And if he had gotten a nomination the Globes would be the greatest award show on earth, right?

      • Dania says:

        @iheartjacksparrow I don’t think anyone would say the Globes are the greatest award show on earth even if their faves got nominated..

      • Paulie says:

        Eh, the GG snub hardly means his star is fading. Black Mass did well at the box office.

    • Tiny Martian says:

      Agreed on all points, Dani2!!

    • Golden says:

      @Dani2 Yes, please let Leo win. I do think he’s hungry for some recognition, but wouldn’t you be in his place? His message of thanks for the GG nom is quite peculiar though.

  4. NUTBALLS says:

    Not surprised if Keaton and Ruffalo are splitting the votes, but not unhappy with who ended up in supporting actor. Yea for Sly and Idris!

    • Original T.C. says:

      Happy for both guys and 100% with your support of Alicia Vikander as a talented working actress.

  5. K says:

    Go Idris!!! Idris is literally all I care about, the rest ugh same old same old. But I’m all about Idris sweeping this awards season!

  6. Insomniac says:

    I know Johnny Depp isn’t too popular here lately and I generally share in the disillusionment, but I really did think he was good in Black Mass, so I’m sorry he got snubbed here.

  7. Naya says:

    Idris is going to rule the night – suck it Bond. Cranston, Fassy and Will, our hopes for 2016 “poor Leo” memes rest on your capable shoulders. You can do this.

  8. anon says:

    No Johnny Depp? What the fuck? Vikander with two nods? I thought she was gonna get one for supporting role for TDG. This is bullshit.

  9. Luca76 says:

    I have a lot of movies to see! Go idris, Go Saoirse!
    Can we officially stop talking about K-stew as a thing this year. Maybe one day who knows but she never seriously had a chance.

  10. noway says:

    I am happy with Bryan Cranston. I love to see him recognized in his film roles too!!!!!

  11. Elsa says:

    The Depp snub was shocking! I was really rooting for him. At least he still has the SAG nom.

  12. MrsBPitt says:

    I’m really going to be unhappy if Eddie Redmayne wins for a second year in a row…I thought MIchael Keaton should have won last year!! I haven’t seen Revenant yet, but the trailers are shot so beautifully, I’m starting to hope AI wins best director. And I know a lot of people don’t like Leo, but I think he is a fantastic actor and he really deserves a win at some point.

    What is this movie that Bryan Cranston is in? I’ve never heard of it….

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Trumbo. It is about screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, McCarthyism, and the Hollywood blacklist. Strong supporting cast including Helen Mirren, Louis C K, an underused Diane Lane, John Goodman, Stephen Root, and Elle Fanning.

    • Golden says:

      Love Brian Cranston. Funny and humble – catch him on that old Howard Stern interview where he talks about losing his virginity to a sex worker. He’s like the apparently milquetoast next door neighbour who comes out with these outrageous and hilarious stories.
      Agreed, it’s Leo’s year and the haters can suck it!

  13. Marianne says:

    Im happy to see some love for Ex Machina even if its just in the form of a Best Supporting Actress nom. Mad Max getting some love was great to see too.

    • Golden says:

      Oscar Issac was so good in Ex Machina too. He gets overlooked more than anyone else. One of the best actors of his generation.

  14. seesittellsit says:

    Tom Hardy – absent again, for “Legend” and for BSA in “The Revenant”.

  15. msd says:

    Y’know everyone always criticises the Globes because it’s such a small pool of people and they’ve made junket-influenced decisions in the past but to my mind they make better, more interesting choices than the Oscars and Emmys. They embrace new stuff and recognise less established talents instead of just going for the same old, same old each year.

    Interesting that Blanchett and Mara got nominated in lead. As I understand it, they’re co-leads but Mara keeps getting pushed into supporting as a strategy to win. Globes called bullshit on that.

    I’m chuffed George Miller is getting nominated all over the place now for directing Mad Max. I was concerned that people would forget him. But why the heck is The Martian in comedy?

    • twodollars says:

      I strongly prefer the Globes over Oscar/Emmy. They actually recognize the work of minorities. I am so sick of year after year of almost all-white acting nominations from Oscar and Emmy. It’s pathetic.

      And when Amy/Tina hosts the show, it is always more entertaining. Not thrilled that Gervais is coming back to host this year.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        I’m sick of Amy and Tina. Their schtick is grating these days, IMO. And their new movie coming out just looks like the dumbest thing ever. I thought Tina must be a strong screenwriter after Mean Girls, but seriously the plot of 40 somethings trying to pass as sisters in their mid-twenties is so beyond reaching ..they are so try-hard, it’s painful to watch.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        I’m with WinnieCoopersMom…..Especially Tina seems grating….Amy isn’t as bad! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE RICKY GERVAIS!!!!

      • siri says:

        I’m no Gervais fan, but definitely prefer him to Tina&Amy. I find them boring and annoying, wheras Gervais’s jokes are- most of the time- quite intelligent, and uncompromising. You really have to listen, otherwise you’ll miss the plot.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      I agree with you, they surprise you but in a good way. It’s interesting & the hosts are funny & get to write whatever they want unlike the Oscars. I love awards season & it’s a tradition to sit down & watch them here in casa McGuire but the Oscars have gotten so boring. My only hope this year is that Chris Rock is hosting so fingers crossed that at least it’s fun for a 3 hour show.

  16. Miss M says:

    Is “trumbo” getting blacklisted?! Just one nom? I loved Trumbo!

  17. Spaniard says:

    How much 💰💰 for a comedy/musical nomination for Matt Damon and the Martian??

    • notasugarhere says:

      I think the studio submits their own entry form, so they’d get to choose which category they want for their film. They may have thought they had more of a shot in Comedy vs. the heavy Drama category.

    • Don't kill me I'm French says:

      I laughed more during The Martian than during Spy ( save Statham and Law) and Trainweck ( save Cena and James)

  18. BooBooLaRue says:

    Ah, any excuse for an Idris pix! Thank you!

  19. Snazzy says:

    Cheering and honking for Spy! That was a proper comedy (the Martian was great, but as a comedy? PLEASE)

  20. LAK says:

    I’m so pleased for Sylvester Stallone. A sentence I never, EVA thought i’d utter in relation to Sly and awards season.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Casting way bay to an episode of Designing Women in which Charlene reels off the Academy Award nominations for the original Rocky, admits later ones fell off in quality, and then apologizes for her rant. “I’m sorry to put you in your place like that, but I’m sensitive about my Rocky’s”. Stallone’s work, especially on the first, was very good.

    • Naya says:

      Stallone has always been his own worst enemy. The first Rocky and the first Rambo were phenomenal but his ego always takes over and the next thing you know, he is writing, directing and starring in infinity sequels. Handing over the Rocky writing and directing reigns is the smartest thing he ever did. I still root for the old lug though.

    • Golden says:

      I love CB because the posters know the substantial stuff but it’s all mixed in with the insightful gossip as well. Post #20 and the replies are a great example.

    • siri says:

      Same here. Never really disliked him, because somewhere underneath that macho exterior sits a vulnerable soul…Given the right material, like in Cop Land, he actually CAN act. And he seems to LOVE his girls, so that’s a bonus to me.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Agreed on Cop Land. When the ego is set aside there is strong acting talent in there.

      • siri says:

        @notasugarhere: True about the ego. Unlike Rocky, or Rambo, Cop Land was an ‘ensemble piece’, not a one-man show. But he adapts well when needed;-)

  21. mmm says:

    I can’t believe there’s no cast of Spotlight
    Nor the boy from Room
    and no Johnny Depp. C’mon they even nominated him for the tourist and not black mass?

  22. Catelina says:

    Brad Pitt/Plan B on track to potentially produce third consecutive best picture nominee.

  23. lucy2 says:

    I’m really happy Spy and Melissa got nominations. I thought that movie was HILARIOUS, and the whole theater seemed to love it. Jason Statham was excellent in it too.
    The Martian as a comedy/musical is hilarious in a different way, but I saw a few weeks ago that’s how they were submitting it, I guess they figured it had a better chance of a nomination there.

    • TreadStyle says:

      Agree! I loved Spy, thought it was genuinely one of the most hilarious movies I’ve seen in years. Melissa McCarthy’s best but the whole supporting cast was perfect too. The only time I’ve thought Jason Statham was a good actor… He nailed it.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Yes! I LOVED that movie! I laughed so hard. MM is so talented.

    • truthSF says:

      Statham character was the best/funniest. He was so against type, and yet he nailed it.

  24. Melody says:

    I wish my Thanksgiving turkey had come out as well as Vikander…

  25. Colette says:

    This Awards season is going to be boring as F

  26. M says:

    Brad Pitt is the producer of The Big Short, which means, Brangelina at the Golden Globes!

    • tracking says:

      Oh yeah, completely missed it in the Comedy categories! I’m always a little confused as to how these classifications work.

    • Paige says:

      Not necessarily. Both are going to be busy shooting movies during this time. Angelina with First They Killed My Father and Brad is filming a movie in London with Marion Cotillard.

  27. Paige says:

    I’m disappointed Johnny was snubbed. I can’t at Kate Winslet being nominated.

  28. Lilacflowers says:

    Glad to see a nomination for Paul Dano, who turned in yet another good performance in a long line of consistent very good performances

  29. Eden75 says:

    I am excited for The Revenant. Grace Dove, who plays Leo’s wife, is from my home town! Super nice girl and so very happy for her! Dunno if it will suck or not, but what a huge movie for your first.

  30. Tig says:

    How in the world is The Big Short a comedy? The book is incredible, and reading about the sheer stupidity egged on by greed that resulted in the massive economic meltdown of 07/08 made me so mad I had to put it down a few times. Is it one of those things “if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry” things? Otherwise, fail to see the humor in the subject matter!

  31. serena says:

    Seriously, without some exception, always the same people. Having said that I do hope Maggie Smith, Mark Ruffalo and Idris Elba will win. And Will Smith too, I’m glad he’s back.

  32. Irene says:

    Waitaminute… I thought Joy was being panned by critics? They nominated it before they even saw the movie, based on the director, didn’t they.

  33. Farhi says:

    Joy and The Big Short are comedy? Or musical? I am confused.

  34. hermia says:

    I just hope Carol wins everything it’s been nominated for and that Eddie wins best actor.

  35. Moon says:

    Alicia isn’t ugly or a terrible actress, she’s pretty and reasonably talented. The reason people don’t like her is the same reason why people disliked Hathaway. The over the top accolades don’t match the talent (which is not the same as saying she’s untalented) and this uneasy sense that she’s not a nice person behind that curated image. I wish her well but it makes me sad that this is what it takes to succeed. She’s not genuine. In all honesty I find her new interviews careful, deliberate and calculated. I think her new York times profile is possibly the closest to who she genuinely is.

    • rea says:

      Who doesn’t like her? Are you sure that these people have seen her acting?
      The NYT profile didn’t offer any insight into her persona. Vikander didn’t seem at ease with the journalist who seemed quite put off by her PR team. Ruth LaFerla also is not new to controversy http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lauren-duca/lena-dunham-fat_b_3981499.html
      She’s getting deserved critics prizes and nominations that can/can’t translate into wins. What are the top of the top accolades? I thought she was terrific in Ex Machina and Testament of Youth. A while ago I watched the Swedish Pure,she’s even better.The praise is deserved.

      • Moon says:

        I don’t think people who dislike her have necessarily seen her acting, and im not sayin some aren’t fassbender stans, but some like myself are uneasy with her personality. I have no bad feelings about her acting. I think she’s decent but a little boring, and I prefer brie Larson who makes interesting choices with her characters. I find Alicia tends to play her characters in a cliched way, but she has a naturalistic tone and people like that. That’s my opinion, you’re welcome to yours. Her over the top accolades, I’m referring to the heavy press campaigns earlier this year that heralded her as amazing goddess it girl which frankly was very damn annoying. Thank God she’s toned down the campaigning a notch and we don’t have to suffer another Hathaway, who Alicia reminds me of.

      • Farhi says:

        It is only annoying until you see her work and realize that all the accolades are deserved.

      • Moon says:

        I have seen a lot of her movies and I’m not impressed at all…I find her one dimensional. Being expressive isn’t enough, her characters are one dimensional and interchangeable. They sound different on paper but she plays them all similarly. Mia wasikowska is similar in that vein, but she isnt obnoxious or thirsty so I don’t mind her. Thirst isn’t the same as ambition FYI.

        I would’ve liked to see Charlize nominated for furiosa actually. That was one hell of a performance and a fantastic movie. Pity genre movies don’t carry ‘serious’ clout like ‘arty’ films.

    • Eru says:

      There is just something off with her. There is no real reason to dislike her. But I still dont like her.

      She doesnt seem like she has personality. Never says nothing interesting or memorable in interviews. Only that one time when she was preparing for her Awards season before her movies came out. And that what made people dislike her.

      She seems cold. Thats why she will never be star on her own and Lead movies. More like Hillary Swank that got 2 Oscars but no one cares about her. And her career died right after last Oscar.
      Alicia will probably get few supporting roles in big or Oscar movies for few years. But will never get to Lead big budget movie and be star oh her own.

      • Minxx says:

        Exactly. Her acting seems to be very one-dimentional, like she’s always using the same tools. After a couple of movies it gets boring. She’s not bad just not all that talented to be called the new acting “supernova”. Besides, she comes across as very studied, managed, with no real personality of her own. Something is off with her, can’t warm up to her (I have the same problem with Mara though this one seems at least authentic in her withdrawn personality). I usually have a good instinct when it comes to people and it tells me that Vikander is manipulative and quite cunning, only pretends to looks like a harmless wallflower, with vacant eyes and open mouth – a studied look that most men love.

    • Golden says:

      Really? Are you comparison Alicia to over-the-top Anne? I never hated Anne but watched her train wreck public appearances with great interest. In the end, it’s all curated.

      • Lisa says:

        ^This. She’s not campaigning like crazy but some people have decided that she’s thirsty.

      • moon says:

        I’m talking about her (alicia) intense press at the start of the year. This before any of her films came out. She’s toned her PR down A LOT because it was a failed strategy.

        Saorise and Brie are much more talented as actors and come across as genuine and down to earth to boot. Brie’s been working hard on indie movies, and her acting has improved so much (I remember how forgettable she was in that miles teller movie The Spectacular Now) – she’s amazing in Room. Alicia and Brie both started booking serious gigs two years ago, and became serious contenders this year. Difference is Brie is getting accolades for a low budget indie, while Alicia is YES getting nods for her acting, but she first came into the spotlight with her dodgy fassbender relationship and thirsting for the LV contract. Say what you will, the fassbender relationship just drips of PR and dodgy. Her interviews always mention him even if she ‘refuses to talk about it’. That’s a tried and tested PR tactic – drop his name but officially act coy. His press barely mentions her, they just talk about what a fantastic actor he was in Jobs/Macbeth or what a box office disappointment Jobs was – strictly business. All the tabloid tabs on their relationship quote sources ‘close to alicia’, never fassbender. No one at the start of this year would read anything about the unknown Alicia (her few Royal fans not withstanding, but don’t give me that bull she was a relative unknown) but add Fassbender’s name and suddenly people want to read and know about her, gets her name out there. So yes, genuine relationship or not she’s milking every PR drop of it.

  36. Chinoiserie says:

    I do not know why Kaiser is suprised about Winstlet’s nominations when she is the strongest contender after Vikander and Mara that try to category fraud to supporting actress but seems like that is not working so well for them. However I have not seen Steve Jobs so maybe Winslet was not good.

    Glad for Spy, but it was petty obvious it would make to the comedy section, the Globes actually do nominate real comedies and musicals if they are good.

    Why do some acting contenders like Ruffalo have the name of the film after them and rest do not?

    • Moon says:

      I guess it’s subjective, but I liked Kate winslet in Steve jobs. She was miscast, but she did a good job with sorkin’ script and let’s be honest his style is not the easiest to pull off.

  37. Barb says:

    Depp’s snub must have to do with them getting widely mocked over nominating him for The Tourist. It’s the only logical explanation.

    They snubbed Jolie last year too, for the same reason.

    Just goes to show you how much of a joke the Golden Globes are. Congrats for snubbing one of the truly top performances of the year.

  38. CornyBlue says:

    YEs!!! at Alicia getting two noms. I hope she is cackling at all the venom that was spewed at her for stating that she hopes all her 3 movies get Oscar Consideration.

  39. WinnieCoopersMom says:

    What a boring lineup…I sure hope they get some good hosts for the various shows this year to liven things up a bit! Gervais is usually entertaining. I realize she is nominated and that a lot of people are “over” Amy Schumer but I think she would be a great host bc she is very talented at picking on people and calling them out. I hate when the hosts are overly-PC like they give light jokes, not wanting to hurt feelings OR they work so hard on a joke that it falls flat. No. These beautiful, rich people are patted on the back every year for being in movies, they deserve a fun, hilarious roasting.

      Please have Gervais back in full throttle. Gervais hosting the GGs the only reason I went back watching the Oscars and the Golden Globes.

    They should have nominated Carey Mulligan instead of Alicia Vikander in best actress category. I wonder if the bad promotion for suffragette (with Meryl Streep and the slave quotes) hurts her change. She was an early contender on most prediction lists and was seen as a frontrunner at some point.

  41. Chantal says:

    What happened to Suffragettes? I thought it would had more impact. It’s like it went dark. I have not seen it, so I cannot judge. Doesn’t Meryll get a guaranty nomination, at least from the SAG? With gender equality at the forefront, I am surprise.

    • Dangles says:

      The criticism about the suffragettes not being inclusive of black women killed it. Either that or the film just wasn’t that good despite its subject matter.

    No one here watches “Fargo”? I am THRILLED for Dunst and Patrick Wilson – they are incredible! But where is BOKEEM WOODBINE??!! Where are the actors that play Dodd, Bear and Hanzee??? Where are Ted Danson and Jesse Plemmons???? Everyone on that show is marvelous. I hope it wins for Best Limited Series….

    • DameEdna says:

      Mostly yes to all that…..Fargo has been amazing.

      But…….Wolf Hall and the utter genius of Mark Rylance. Damn!

    Best Foreign Language Film:

    The Brand New Testament (Belgium/France/Luxembourg)

    The Club (Chile)

    The Fencer (Finland/Germany/Estonia)

    Mustang (France)

    Son of Saul (Hungary)

    What do we like?

    Thank God no Kristen Stewart. But hey – at least her fans have that Cesar. Now they can throw it in every comments section for next 5 years.

    I hope Fassbender will take it out from Leo. Or Bryan Cranston.

    Martian and Joy in comedy section is a joke. Avengers 2 and Jurassic World were totally robed then.

    @NUTBALLS I agree with you. What’s with the Alicia hate?

    • Leah says:

      Yeah i don’t get it either. I don’t think she is an amazing actress in what i have seen but i also don’t think she is less deserving than most actress who get nominated. Most of them are good but very few blow my mind. I mean Keira Knightley has several nominations for instance Sarosie Ronan for me is the real contender here amongst the younger actresses. She’s truly talented and she might be the dark horse in this race.
      I think winslet is great in most things although i haven’t seen Jobs so i don’t know if she is just getting nominated because she is who she is. Very happy for Idris, Important movie that will hopefully have a presence at the Oscars too. More movies like that need to be made.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Golden, I have no clue. I’ve seen three of her films — A Royal Affair, Ex Machina & Testament of Youth and I thought she was great in all of them. I like her ambition. I like that she isn’t a classically trained actress and yet, I find her performances very engaging. I like how down to earth she comes off as and I think she’s lovely to look at.

      While I would prefer to see some older, more seasoned actresses get their due (Jennifer Jason Leigh or Charlotte Rampling, for example), I wouldn’t begrudge Alicia an award.

    • lilacflowers says:

      I don’t get it either. I’ve seen A Royal Affair, Ex Machina, Anna Karenina, and Man from UNCLE and I think she has shown talent. She’s pretty, not beautiful, but pretty. Some here find her arrogant in some way, I don’t, but we’re all entitled to our opinions.

    Abraham Atta who plays Agu in Beasts of No Nation was robbed of a nomination. He gave an absolutely brilliant performance alongside Idris. Happy for Idris Elba though, he deserves it without a shadow of a doubt!

    I really enjoyed Alicia’s work in Man from U.N.C.L.E. I loved Melissa McCarthy in Spy, she was so hilarious and I loved the movie too.

  47. Tallia says:

    Johnny Depp’s accent in Black Mass was atrocious, he keep floating in and out. Kate Winslet had the same problem. Two different outcomes in nominations, however.

    So happy Idris Elba got a nod. Totally deserved. Same with Mark Rylance. I wouldn’t know who to vote for in the Supporting category. Both performances were stellar.

    • Dania says:

      Both Johnny and Kate got nominated at the SAG Awards so not completely different outcomes in nominations. And I think Johnny’s accent was fine in Black Mass, nowhere near atrocious.
