I'd say the biggest surprise is the nominations for The Tourist...
Dec 14 - 06:55 AM
And Alice in Wonderland with Burlesque. Seriously, all three could have been swap for Toy Story 3. Hell, Toy Story 2 was nominated and won best Comedy/Musical in its year. Anyways, The Golden Globes are worse than the Oscars.
Dec 14 - 06:59 AM
Very strong lineup of films in the 'Best Motion Picture - Drama' category, however.
Dec 14 - 07:00 AM
Yup. Anyways, since when has Johnny Depp transformed into Samuel L. Jackson?
Dec 14 - 07:03 AM
Okay it's fixed.
Dec 14 - 08:08 AM
I don't think it's fixed, but I don't think the nominating committee even watches some of these movies. The Tourist and Alice in Wonderland best pictures?
Dec 14 - 08:40 AM
It's unreal that ever other awards association are pretty much on the money and universal with their picks, and the Golden Globes are way out in left field. First, they left The Town out of almost everything. I understand Drama was a good category this year, but The Town is in the top ten best films of the year. All the good comedies that came out this year and they pick a bunch of movies that aren't even comedies. Red and The Tourist are action movies. The Tourist should be getting Razzie Noms, not Golden Globes.You're right, Golden Globes are bad. The HFPA needs to be purged. They're supposed to set the tone for who will take home what at the Oscars, but if the Oscars come out with nominations like these, I'm going to be tuning out for the first time in ten years.
Dec 14 - 11:20 AM
The Town is one of the best movie of 2010 along with Inception and The Town even not getting the nomination it is a shame for such prestigious award !!!!
Jan 22 - 02:49 PM
The Golden Globes needs to not care about ratings and start caring about what awards are supposed to do, award movies for being amazing. Kids aren't going to watch a 3 hour long show in hopes of seeing a glimpse of Angelina Jolie or Johhny Depp...
Dec 15 - 01:36 PM
I agree!! Why is Toy Story 3 not nominated?
Jan 16 - 07:22 PM
Agreed, I can't believe it is nominated let alone as a comedy or musical
Dec 14 - 09:10 AM
Dec 14 - 09:11 AM
These guys must have some sick, twisted obsession with Johnny Depp. He's a good actor, but his movies this year are not good. Why are Alice in Wonderland and The Tourist nominated? They're horrible! The Tourist isn't even a Musical or Comedy!...And where the heck is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World!!!!
Dec 14 - 02:26 PM
They surely missed out Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Dang!
Jan 16 - 08:49 PM
Its really a publicity stunt. Nominate Angelina Jolie or Johnny Depp and have them show up to boost ratings. The Globes are kind of a joke really, if you look at how mediocre and borderline terrible the comedies/ musicals are (besides The Kids Are Alright.) The dramatic categories look great, except for Danny Boyle not getting nominated or Halle Berry getting nominated.
Dec 15 - 12:11 PM
YES! Agree! I guess 2010 was just that sparse of good things in cinema.
Jan 17 - 01:44 PM

No nomination for best original score for How To Train Your Dragon? Fail. And all the nominees for best motion picture-comedy or musical are garbage except maybe for Red and The Kids Are All Right. Alice in Wonderland is funnier and a better movie than Get Him To The Greek? Yeah, right.
Dec 14 - 07:25 AM
Seriously, no score nomination for How to Train Your Dragon? I remember turning to my friend during the movie and saying, "I'm buying this soundtrack after this movie," and that was less than 10 minutes into the film! It's also the reason why I went to watch it again, dropping another $15 because it was in 3D.Sheesh, take out Alice, the Tourist and Burlesque and put in Dragon, Toy Story 3 and Tangled instead. I know they have they're own animated category, but they're all very well produced "comedy" films. It makes absolutely no sense...I'm just baffled.
Dec 15 - 06:59 AM
Yeah, what's with that? And The Social Network beating out Inception for best score??? Say Whaaaaaaaaa?!?!? Did they even hear that music? Probably not, as they were too busy paying attention to anything but the soundtrack or Leonardo friggin DiCaprio. They've missed everything good about cinema. What losers.
Jan 16 - 11:17 PM
It's a sad state of affairs when every single movie in your "Best Animated Film" category is better than every movie in your "Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical" category. In fact, the Globe's would gain loads of credibility simply by copying and pasting the movies in the animated category, into the best comedy or musical. They'd fit quite nicely there (certainly better than the jokes currently occupying those spots). Or they could just abandon that category all together. And Johnny Depp (one of the best actors around, in one of the worst years of his career) taking two up two places with one mediocre performance and one that's just lazy. Sometimes I wonder who they have picking these nominations. They need to decide if they want to be taken seriously, or just become another useless Peoples Choice Award Show.Say what you will about the Oscar's, but at least crap like this doesn't happen on such a grand scale (year after year after year).
Dec 14 - 07:28 AM
It's turning to the VGA's! RUN!!!
Dec 14 - 07:47 AM
Nothing is as bad as the VGAs. And I don't just mean in the category of award shows.
Dec 14 - 12:34 PM
Best comment fueled by Mountain Dew!
Dec 14 - 02:59 PM
I could forgive Alice in Wonderland because even though it's a bad movie Johnny Depp is the best thing in it and delivers a pretty good performance.
Dec 14 - 05:17 PM
but The Tourist is baffling.
The TOURIST?! Burlesque?! Alice in Wonderland?! No Dicaprio?! Fail. Take out Depp for The Tourist, put Brand in and Greek instead of The Tourist. Yay for Social Network and Inception though
Dec 14 - 07:31 AM
Exactly! What the hell happened, Leonardo DiCaprio delivered some really emotional and edgy performances this year. I thought forsure his Shutter Island performance would've easily won or at least been nominated. If he doesn't get his Oscar win this year or at least a nomination I swear I'll be pissed.

Jan 16 - 10:54 PM
The social Network was a bore, it is the golden child of the awards ceremonies though
Jan 17 - 04:51 AM
Wow, some of those are jokes. The Tourist in Best Musical/Comedy? Have they even seen the movie? Also Burlusque and Alice in Wonderland are not worthy of one of the best picture awards. Just a joke.
This comment has been removed.
Ever since they became focused on ratings, they lost the meaning of TRUE quality.
Dec 14 - 07:53 AM
Lack of good comedies, but put Other Guys, Get Him To The Greek, Toy Story 3, Cyrus, and Scott Pilgrim, like August M. said
Dec 14 - 07:55 AM
True Grit was completely left out?! That a surprise.
Dec 14 - 07:36 AM
Not really that surprising. The 90 or so HFPA members have never really been all that crazy for Coen Bros. movies. No change here. I don't think they "get" them.
Dec 14 - 07:52 AM
Their loss. The Coens are amazing!!
Dec 14 - 08:06 AM
I haven't even seen True Grit yet, but I'm pretty sure it should've been nominated just based on who directed it.
Dec 14 - 08:35 PM
Agreed. The Film looks amazing. Can't wait.
Dec 15 - 11:40 PM
All the nominations and acting nominations for Drama are great. The nominations for Best Musical/Comedy? Wow those are awful. How does The Tourist, with a 20% approval rating, get nominated for Best Picture and Best Actor and Actress??? The Golden Globes have always been a joke. It's all about ratings and it's all just a poor man's Academy Awards. I'll wait for the Oscars.
Dec 14 - 07:37 AM
like I said, its the lack of good comedies. But I say again; take Burlesque and The Tourist the hell outta there. And I say again; "WHERE THE FUCK IS DICAPRIO
Dec 14 - 07:44 AM
Toy Story 3, Scott Pilgrim, The Other Guys, Get Him to the Greek, and Cyrus. BOOM! 5 comedies better than the ones nominated.
Dec 14 - 07:50 AM
EXACTLY the list I'd have picked. And Jonah Hill/ John C. Reilly for best actor - comedy
Nailed it, those are definitely 5 movies that should have gotten the nominations. The only actual nomination that is worthy is The Kids Are All Right.
Dec 14 - 07:56 AM
Actually, there WERE good comedies this year
Dec 14 - 07:57 AM
Yes. Nailed it on the head
Dec 14 - 04:17 PM
Dec 15 - 06:22 AM
Now that I really ponder it, I think these are the five films for Comedy/Musical that should have been nominated (not counting animated movies because obviously the Globes don't know what those are): The Kids Are All Right (nothing wrong with that being there), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Easy A, Get Him to the Greek, and The Other Guys.
Dec 16 - 12:32 AM
The Kids Are All Right and Red are both fine nominations. The other three slots should have gone to Easy A, Kick-Ass, and How Do You Know (saw a screening -- no As Good As It Gets, but still good).
Dec 14 - 09:27 AM
I never want to hear complaints about American taste ever again after this critical abortion by the Foreign Press.
Dec 14 - 05:23 PM
I haven't seen it, but I feel like 127 Hours was snubbed too
Dec 14 - 07:38 AM
I don't quite think it was best picture material, but given the list of nominations it surely could have been nominated.
Dec 14 - 09:14 AM
I feel it could have easily been best picture material. Then again, so are many films this year. It's been a fantastic year. Maybe if the academy pull their 10 nominations shite this year, 127 Hours will be one of the ten, along with others snubbed here like The Town and Animal Kingdom. Most of the wins were well deserving.
Jan 16 - 08:41 PM
And also, call me crazy, but aren't animated films eligible for the Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical category? If that's true, than according to the Golden Globes, Alice in Wonderland, Bulesque, and The Tourist are better movies than Toy Story 3, How to Train Your Dragon, and Tangled. Yeah, right.Once again, these awards are just garbage.
Toy Story 2 and Beauty and the Beast won it in their years.
Dec 14 - 07:51 AM
Exactly. That's why this doesn't make a lick of sense to me...
The only reason Burlesque is there is because its the only musical this year, more or less, that's why Nine was there last year. toss out the 'musical part', keep it just 'comedy'
Dec 14 - 07:59 AM
Yeah I don't know what some of these movies are doing on this list. "Burlesque" was a musical yes, but was it a good movie? No. Not at all. "The Tourist"? Of course not. Even in the acting category though...I'm glad Michael is recovering from his cancer but "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" wasn't all that good and his performance was just okay (my opinion). The same goes for Jake Gyllenhaal and Kevin Spacey. Oh well. Let's go "Black Swan", Natalie Portman, Chris Nolan, James Franco, Mila Kunis, the "Inception" score, and "How to Train Your Dragon!"
Dec 17 - 07:34 AM
im sad to see no scott pilgrim or 127 hours. i have yet to see the fighter, black swan or the king's speech, mostly cause they're never at my theatre. the nominations for best comedy musical...oh my gosh. Are they joking!?!?! How about they replace the tourist, alice and burlesque with scott p, toy story 3 and the other guys!?
