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:
The Big Short
Mad Max: Fury Road
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
Mark Ruffalo, Infinitely Polar Bear
Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical
Lily Tomlin, Grandma
Best Actor in a Drama
Best Actress in a Drama
Best Supporting Actress
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Best Supporting Actor
The Big Short
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.
