This is the worst list of nominations I have ever seen. Just because he is in a movie does not mean Johnny depp has to be nominated for an award! The tourist was his worst performance to date and Alice in wonderland was pretty mediocre. And really, burlesque? If they're aren't enough good movies to nominate, then don't throw in all these awful wild cards that have no chance in hell of winning and don't deserve the nomination in the first place.

"Just because he is in a movie does not mean Johnny depp has to be nominated for an award!"Actually, I think that's exactly what it means. Haven't you heard? Depp is the new Streep.

Props for RED getting a nod!Though no Easy-A in comedy???
Dec 14 - 08:22 AM
Easy A would be the logical and fair choice. So in otherwords, NO
Dec 15 - 02:04 PM
The Tourist and Alice in Wonderland? There are better comedies to choose from. Easy A should have been nominated.
Dec 14 - 08:25 AM
Do they even try any more? Seriously, do they even make an attempt to nominate the highest of quality of films and television? This seems like a list consisting created by simply looking at TV commercials to see what movies were out and what got buzz this year.
Dec 14 - 08:31 AM
All Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, and Nicole Kidman need to do is belch in a movie and the Golden Globes will nominate them.
Dec 14 - 08:32 AM
Alice in Wonderland, Burlesque over Scott Pilgrim! oh wow, funnily insane.But somehow couldn't have agree more with Best Motion Picture Drama category nominations.
Dec 14 - 11:34 AM
AGREED. Scott Pilgrim was a titanic and maybe Edgar Wright's best film
Jan 17 - 08:07 PM
The only deserving one of those three is Kidman.Take out Halle and put in Noomi Rapace for f*ck sakes. I doubt she'll win with Portman in the competition, even though I feel that Rapace's role is the best of the year (either Rapace or Portman winning is fine with me), but at least nominate her or something.At least Jacki Weaver was recognized, though.
Jan 16 - 08:44 PM
Heck, if it was an awesome belch I'd nominate them for that...lol.
Jan 16 - 10:36 PM
Can't believe leonardo dicaprio isn't nominated for best actor for inception or shutter island. I mean not even 1 of them...
Dec 14 - 08:34 AM
I wish he was nominated too bro, but its a tight lst and you gotta make choices I guess
Dec 14 - 08:41 AM
That's right. And the choice should always be to NOT nominate Mark Wahlberg!
Dec 14 - 09:43 AM
Mark was pretty good in The Fighter actually
Jan 16 - 09:07 PM
Maybe they should have advertised Shutter Island as a Musical or Comedy and he could have won. :)
Dec 14 - 05:19 PM
If they did that then The Tourist would miss out BigBro. How could you even think of let alone suggest something that ridiculous?
Dec 15 - 01:53 PM
It's a shame that DiCaprio seems to be exiled from contention because his newest work is constantly compared to the quality of his past work. He's arguably the best actor in the world, but Tom Brady is arguably the greatest QB ever... if he was to actually win more like he used to. DiCaprio's 3 superbowl victories include Titanic, Catch Me If You Can and The Departed. Either way, Brady and DiCaprio are laughing all the way to the bank. I wouldn't be too upset for them, both are extremely talented.
Jan 19 - 01:17 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
Good TV list though. Boardwalk Empire FTW
Dec 14 - 08:42 AM
No True Grit=Joke
Dec 14 - 08:55 AM
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
what a crap list,, one day dicaprio will get his, but im thinkin Jeremy Renner should win for The Town. He was great in that movie.
Dec 14 - 09:12 AM
Any actor in the Supporting category stand no chance against Bale this year. It is kind of sad that they are even bothering to flatter anyone else with a nomination. Bale deserves it, though. One hell of an actor.
Dec 14 - 01:55 PM
WHAT?! Did these morons just draw lots for musical/comedy? The list is complete bulls***! They must have been drunk. No other possible explanation.
Dec 14 - 09:13 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
Surely there were better options to choose for Comedy/Musical.
Dec 14 - 09:25 AM
There are, and don't call me Shirley.
Dec 14 - 03:02 PM
Speaking of which there better be a comedy tribute to Leslie Nielsen, though with these noms he may prefer to be left out.
Dec 14 - 05:26 PM
lol, agreed. Leslie Nielsen could have made 5 comedies in one day that would be better than the ones nominated....
Dec 16 - 12:10 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
So happy for the BURLESQUE. The movie got an A- from audiences polled by CINIMASCORE. The screening I went to was so great that everyone was on their feet clapping at the end. Once again, how many critics will actually admit to liking this? Not very many according to its tomato score. But at the end, the voice of the Public always wins over the Critics. Not shocked it was nominated at all.I see some haters are mad.
Dec 14 - 09:30 AM
Cinemascore is polled on opening weekends, and that crowd (for this movie at least) was probably a very specific demographic of people that love musicals, Cher, and/or Christina. I'm sure the opening weekend audience for the Twilight movies all stood up and cheered for that, too, but that doesn't necessarily make it a good movie. Simply effective in pleasing a very specific target audience.
Dec 14 - 09:46 AM
You would have think that. But the audience was actually made up of more people outside its target demographic of females 20+ than you would belive. Infact most certainly there were more married older couples there than anything else. The audience was more 1/3 Females, 1/3 Gays and 1/3 str8 men on dates/married. Justify it how you wish, but notice Burlesque going from 32% to now 38% as international reviews come in. Fact of the matter is, Based on RottenTomatoes own rating system, it suggest that 1(+) out of 3 people enjoyed it. Musicals have almost ALWAYS been this way. Its usually Broadway adaptations who get praise. BURLESQUE rightfully deserves its nomination. ...and Chances are you didnt even see the movie yourself. Just hating like most people do and judging a book by its cover.
