I know right? Makes me wanna see it even more!

Why is it though that they immediately nominate Django Unchained, and a couple other movies when they haven't even been released in theaters yet?
Dec 13 - 11:11 PM
Because the movie should be awarded based on its quality not based on its commercial success or public attention, you can see that clearly looking at movies like Skyfall and The Hunger Games.

I think he wonders how they can be eligible if no one's seen them, to which I reply "pre screening! Showing the film to a limited audience to get it eligible for awards!"

Agree that the Golden Globes are usually a bunch of bullshit. Dances with smurfs beat Hurt Locker? Wow. I didn't even like Hurt Locker... but it was certainly better than the piece of overrated trash by Cameron. Act of Valor was a disgrace. Pretty solid predictions. I absolutely adored Moonrise Kingdom. Hope it gets at least one oscar nod.

QT don't care... I assure you. He cares about making great movies for the sake of making great movies. And he has done it again with Django (from the look of things).

over Paranorman? wtf?
Dec 13 - 01:51 PM
I think she is a hack of an actress. I don't find her attractive or talented at all.

Once again, Pirates! Band of Misifts misses out on Best Animated Feature. :(

Best Supporting Actor - Christoph Waltz or Alan Arkin
Best Supporting Actress - Anne Hathaway
Best Director - Ben Affleck or Quinton Tarantino
Best Screenplay - Argo or Django Unchained

Best Original Song - "Skyfall" by Adele
Best Animated Film - Wreck-It Ralph

Rottentomatoes series, when?
Dec 13 - 02:51 PM
Arietty was officially released several years ago and thus probably isn't eligible.
Dec 13 - 03:11 PM
No ParaNorman for best animated film?
Wow. Just wow.
Dec 13 - 03:15 PM
Stunned. Paranorman was easily my favorite animated film of the year. Funny, scary, entertaining, moving. The animation was terrific too. Here is to hoping the Academy isn't so blind as the Golden Globes.

Any time I watch a Wes Anderson movie I keep half-expecting him to walk into the middle of a scene waving his arms screaming "AM I BEING SICKENINGLY-SWEETLY ECLECTIC ENOUGH YET?! WELL AM I!?" It's the cinema equivalent of getting smacked on the head with an indie baseball bat.
MK started out decently enough when it was just a simple little story about two weird outcast kids on a Calvin-and-Hobbes-esque journey but then it just went completely over-the-top with schmaltzy reality-defying segments that just felt like they were in there for the sake of being quirky.
Dec 13 - 03:18 PM
WTF is an indie baseball bat? The film has a whimsical humor. I don't know why you think it's trying to fool you somehow.

Golden Globes are giving Beasts of the Southern Wild no love here, and it's appalling.
Dec 13 - 03:22 PM
Zeitlin couldn't afford the petition fees. Or the seat tickets. (Bought and paid for, I'm bluntly saying)
Dec 13 - 04:01 PM
Hated that movie, but because of its overall critical acclaim I am inclined to agree with you. It probably should have been included. It is nice to see the smaller films get some attention.
Dec 13 - 04:53 PM
Snubbed Bardem... screw the Globes.
Dec 13 - 03:34 PM
Still, there were plenty of Korean, Chinese and Japanese films this year worthy of inclusion in the foreign catagory. The Globes rarely include films from this area of the world.
Dec 13 - 03:55 PM
SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN does not deserve any of it's 3 nominations! Emily Blunt was much better in YOUR SISTER'S SISTER and THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT. I guess we'll just chalk-up all the snubs across the board to the Globes' broadcast celeb party having no love for indie film.
SHERLOCK deserves to be recognized for much more than Benedict Cumberbatch's greatness!

Hey who agrees with me that Ted should have been nominated for Best Picture in the comedy part?
Dec 13 - 04:36 PM
I think I would rather have a dog fart in my face.
Dec 14 - 10:30 AM
YES that and 21 Jump Street and I know this isn't technically a comedy but The Avengers was probably the best movie I have see all year; at least the most entertaining one and despite the rave reviews it didn't get nominated. I know its a long shot but I really think The Avengers should be nominated for best picture at the Oscars however I believe it'll be The Dark Knight all over again
Dec 15 - 10:30 AM
The Avengers for best picture? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I haven't laughed that well in a while. Please. It was entertaining, but in the end just a superhero movie. The Dark Knight transcended its genre and was actually serious. Get a grip on yourself. Movies don't get nominated just for being entertaining. They have to have some artistic merit also.
