  • Eleanore

    Johnny Depp? Really?

    And Jon Hamm better win this year.

    • Strepsi

      Seriously, weak year for Comedies, Comedy Actor, and male supporting parts. The Tourist? Really??!! I think Angelina Jolie is actually a fierce actress, but the HFPA has a permanent b*ner for her and Johnny Depp, no matter WHAT garbage they do. Alice in Wonderland? Really???! What about Kick-A** ? Nic Cage in Kick A** was a brilliant supporting role.

      • mscisluv

        Alice in Wonderland was a TERRIBLE movie all around. I can’t understand why it would get these nominations (something for make-up or technical work I would get).

      • Ali

        The only reason Depp and Jolie got nominated is for hope that they’ll show up.

      • Devin Faraci

        Who cares what a few dozen foreign journalists think??They’re a bunch of corrupt know-nothings.

      • Ellen

        I love Johnny Depp, but come ON! Alice and Wonderland is a strech, but The Tourist?! Total garbage.

      • Ferniesfreckles

        Yeah, and seeing as how both Angie and Johnny are INTERNATIONALLY known superstars, of course they would be nominated by the Foreign Press. Duh

      • Maserda

        How is “The Tourist” a comedy or musical? Or is that category for anuything that is not considered a traditional drama?

      • anya

        In what way is The Tourist, which looks horrible anyway, a comedy? Did I miss something in the previews? I love Johnny Depp, but he’s nominated twice in the comedy category for two fairly crappy movies, neither of which is really a comedy.

      • murley

        the tourist was not a very good movie. at all. it certainly does not deserve a nomination. jolie did nothing of note in it and depp, while always fantastic, didn’t have a lot to do either. this is absurd.

      • sarCC

        It was an OK year for comedy…but they didn’t choose any comedies. The Kids Are All Right is more of a drama than The Social Network is. Scott Pilgrim was hilarious, and I’d even put Kick-Ass as a comedy, too. Get Him To The Greek, Hot Tub Time Machine, Jackass 3D. Hell, Toy Story 3, even.

      • thats lame

        I officially hate the Golden Globes because of this list. I’m waiting for the Academy Awards instead! Ben Affleck should of been nominated for best actor for The Town, Steve Carell should of been nominated for best actor for Dinner For Schmucks, Andy Garcia should of been nominated for best actor for City Island, Michael Douglas should of been nominated for best actor for Solitary Man.

      • wow

        Red has to win for the category comedy. If it doesnt win then the golden globe workers are going to look like dipshi*s forever! Thats all Im going to say.

    • Barbara

      I think John Hamm has won enough awards – it’s time for Steve Buscemi to win!!!

      • amandajo

        I agree completely…love Steve Buscemi in Boardwalk Empire…best drama on TV right now (with Dexter a close second)!

      • P

        What awards has Jon Hamm won?

      • K

        Yeah, you must have Jon Hamm confused with someone else.

      • gah

        yeah jon hamm won once i think – and thats all. he won the year they didnt do the actual awards cause of the strike

      • terry

        I don’t think Jon Hamm ever won the Golden Globe for Mad Men

      • Ana170

        He won the Golden Globe in ’07 and he’s got some SAG ensemble awards but nothing else. He’s actually being overlooked if you ask me.

      • JackieB

        I love Jon Hamm, he’s awesome. I just can’t get over Angelina Jolie OR the Tourist being nominated. Gross.

    • andrea d

      ABSOLUTELY agree about Jon Hamm. He did actually win a GG for season one, but that was the strike year so there was no show. The Emmy is the one he HAS to get.

      • Nelda

        Yes, Jon Hamm needs to win the Emmy. He should for the episode “The Suitcase,” which was Emmy bait for both him and Elizabeth Moss.

      • justjack

        That is a FIERCE list of best actor nominees… tough year, but I agree that Jon should win it.

    • Alleycat

      CONGRATS TO CARRIE UNDERWOOD! Wow! Her Narnia movie song is beautiful, but none of the experts predicted her to sneak in for the Song category. So happy they were wrong! Woohoo!

      • Ryan Camp

        I am thrilled for Carrie Underwood and Christina Aguilera scoring nominations! Two of the best vocalists in music right now. Carrie is a sweetheart and it is great to see her prove the snooty industry critics wrong, as they never counted her in the running for her song. I think her song beautifully captures the essence of the Narnia movies, and I am thrilled for her nomination!

    • Robert Forstman

      Thrilled for Carrie Underwood getting nominated for Best Song from the Narnia movie! She did a great job capturing the essence of the film. Beautiful vocals too. So happy she snuck in there despite the industry snobs not predicting her to make the cut. :)

      • Bluto

        “a great job capturing the essence of the film.” What exactly is the essence of the film? From what I’ve seen/heard of Miss Underwood’s song, it’s nothing but a typical “here we are let’s make the best of the moment and love one another type” crap. I bet you are an intern.

      • ger

        Good lord

      • Robert Forstman

        Bluto- you are just a hater. Carrie’s song is beautiful and she deserved the nomination. No need to make personal attacks at others just because you have a different opinion. The essence of the film is that there is a place for everyone, even if you don’t fit in where you are right now. It is an inspirational film to keep going even when all seems lost. Carrie’s song captures that beautifully. Nothing wrong with a positive, inspirational film, especially since it is a children’s movie, not Top 40 radio. Not everyone is as cynical as you. Many people, especially children, love inspirational music and messages. So stop hating.

    • Rolo Tomasi

      Depp for the Tourist? Really?

      • Josie

        I KNOW! What total JOKE nominations, the film isn’t even a comedy. Toy Story 3, Kick Ass, Get Low, Scott Pilgrim, even Tangled all could have been nominated instead of The Tourist or Alice..

      • Chris

        At the Globes, animated films cannot be nominated in the drama or comedy/musical categories. Only the animated award.

      • Peter Vee

        The HFP have clearly lost it. Ever since they moved their nomination to before the end of the actual calendar year, they miss a slew of really good films, but to nominate an actor for a mediocre romantic thriller that’s only been out for a few days, that’s ludicrous.

      • Olive

        Depp and Jolie should boycott the Globes this year. Is The Tourist even a comedy?

    • Sam

      The only thing that made The Tourist a comedy was how laughable bad it was.

    • LOL

      The Tourist is a comedy? Who knew? Did anyone even see it?

      • TT

        The Tourist is a bad picture unfortunately. It is certainly NOT a drama and thus had to be nominated under the Comedy category.

    • K S

      I think Johnny Depp is a GREAT actor …. he should have several Golden globes and Academy awards by now.. his acting is always great even if the story and movie aren’t they best. Glad he is nominated. I love his role selection.

      • Eddieson

        several Golden globes and Academy awards???
        for what? being the clown of hollywood??

    • dipshat

      Oh my god! The nominations were announced today?!!!!!

    • T

      sorry John Hamm. Michael C. Hall. no one does what he is doing …and last season no one else COULD’VE done it!

    • A-K87

      As long as Elba takes home his trophy for his portrayal of John Luther, I’ll be very happy.

  • paige

    things that come to mind: 1) True Grit SNUB! 2) Film Comedy Actor is truly pathetic. If Johnny Depp wins, itll be very sad. 3) Ive officially thrown in the towel in hopes that How to Train Your Dragon will win for Best Musical Score – its absolute perfection and for some reason, its getting ignored by every award branch. 4) YAY ARONOFSKY!!!

    • Michael

      True Grit wasn’t seen by many members of the HFPA in enough time so it’s exclusion won’t come as a surprise to many pundits.

    • Jose

      I know right? Maybe Dragon can still get in because isn’t there a rule against 2 composers for one film? So maybe Dragon can take The social Network’s spot.

      • paige

        why oh why is Johnny Depp there for 2 lackluster movies while Jim Carrey is getting some of the best reviews of his career for I love you Phillip Morris???

    • terry

      How To Train Your Dragon was one of the BEST animated (as well as any) feature of all time. I hope that it does get the award. Great movie

      • Maserda

        Ditto

      • Bluto

        It was a really good movie, and not the typical run-of-the-mill cartoon.

      • anya

        I loved How To Train Your Dragon but Toy Story 3 has got this one in the bag.

    • paige

      so i just finished seeing Black Swan and its also apparent that Clint Mansell was snubbed for another excellent score of his!

    • m1

      Comedy Actor is only pathetic because of Depp’s double nods. Gyllenhaal, Giamatti, and Spacey all deserved their nods.

    • Mels

      ARG!!! I can’t believe the score for How to Train Your Dragon was ignored too! It was SO MUCH better and more creative than Hans Zimmer for Inception.

  • Jenn

    The Tourist in Musical or Comedy??

    • BLM

      My thoughts exactly. That category sucks. There had to have been some funny movies this year, but I can’t think of any…

      • Tori

        I was thinking the same thing. And I think it’s weird that Country Strong was considered in the Drama category. Any other year they would’ve called it a musical, like they did with Walk the Line. Not that Country Strong should’ve been nominated but I could understand that more than Burlesque. And the Tourist. And Alice in Wonderland.

      • Tori

        Oh and I love that Emma Stone was nominated, but why wasn’t Easy A itself nominated? It was one of the smartest comedies of the year! Blasphemy.

      • Corey

        Well Get Low and Country Song could have been nominated, had they not been considered Dramas by the HFPA for some peculiar reason. I would also rather have seen Another Year, Love and Other Drugs, or even The Other Guys (funniest movie of the year for me, and pretty good reviews) nominated.

        Im guessing the late release date hurt How Do You Know? because I thought that for sure was going to get a Best Picture Comedy or Musical nomination as well as an Actor nomination for Paul Rudd, and maybe even an Actress for Reese Witherspoon…I would have much rather seen those 3 nominations than the 3 The Tourist got

      • Shannon

        That’s crazy. Maybe they thought it was really funny.
        There should be an “unintentionally funny” movie category.

    • Devo

      That’s what I was wondering too!

      • Lorie

        Me, too! It’s ridiculous to include THE TOURIST in this category.

      • Cande

        Totally! Easy A!

    • Skip

      The producers hired a lot of h**kers for the “foreign press” to get those TOURIST nominations.

      • sarCC

        I think Piper Perabo “visited” a lot of the members of the Foreign Press to get her nomination.

    • JR

      Heigl and Kutcher are sharpening their knives wondering where their KILLERS nominations are.

      • Brea

        HiLAAAARious!

        :::this was sarcastic humor…yes?:::

      • Phil

        With KILLERS and LIFE AS WE KNOW IT Heigl pretty much has a lock on the Razzie doesn’t she?

      • CJ

        Anniston and Butler in BOUNTY HUNTER?

    • Rule Geek

      I checked the HFPA by-laws. They define comedy as “action / adventure movies that the audienece never, ever laughs during”.

  • Jose

    Alice in Wonderland, really?
    No Scott pilgrim?
    Horray for Emma Stone

    And only in the globes will you see a nomination for Hawaii 5-0

    • Dave

      lol no scott pilgrim. saddest attempt at a movie all year.

      • Jose

        Even sadder than The Tourist, Burlesque, and Alice in Wonderland? Yeah right.

      • m1

        @Jose: And don’t forget The Last Airbender, The Last Song, and Valentine’s Day.

      • Anonymous

        Umm, obviously you didn’t see it.

    • Kate

      Though Stone was brill in Easy A, so glad she got a nom.

      Really disappointed with the Comedy category in general though. Did they just need a completely random reason to nom Jolie and Depp? Honestly.

      Animated category looks great on the other hand!

    • lostidol

      And how did Burlesque get nominated? Why not Love and Other Drugs?

      • caryn

        Totally agree. Burlesque was fun but certaily not good enough to be nominated… for anything.

    • bruno

      yah…? wtf? alice in wonderland was crap. and the tourist??? really? kick ass or scott pilgrim or even easy a could have easily taken and deserved that slot. oh, to love jolie and depp (who shouldn’t show out of total embarassment0. what gets me the most though is seeing burlesque up there…anywhere. gross. really? you sidestep country strong for burlesque? i’m guessing the supporting actress noms are bang on for oscar though if kunis continues to shut out barbs hershey.
      as for tv, cat’s look decent enough. nice for walking dead, nopthing really surprising there. think this is colfer’s sure shot at a win. but piper perabo???? reaaally?…reaalllly?? wish jeniffer carpenter would get some love. seems grossly unjustified that they gave the acting nod to julia stiles (who was just awful and miscast)out of everyone this season…
      and love the blue valentine love!!!

      • Bluto

        AIW WAS crap, and how it got nominated is beyond me. Unwatchable crap at that. TS3 made me (and the rest of the audience) gasp, cry, cheer and go through a hundred other emotions.

      • Ashtrash

        Have you seen Piper Perabo in Covert Affairs? It’s actually a great show and she carries it well. I was skeptical at first, too, bu it’s a very fun show….

    • chocolateislove

      Yeah, in what way are the Tourist and Alice in Wonderland comedies?

  • Rob

    Katey Segal for the win!

    • Olive

      Agreed! It’s about time and while were on the subject of SOA, SOA or Friday Night Lights should have got the nod that Walking Dead received. I love the Zombie show but NO.

  • Lena120

    Was the Tourist hilarious or something? Did someone sing? They marketed it as a Spy thriller! I knew there would be a shortage in that category this year.

  • J.

    I am BAFFLED by these nominations. Toy Story 3 only got 1 nom for animation. True Grit gets shut out completely. But yet Burlesque and The Tourist get THREE nominations each??? And don’t get me started on the TV nominations…lack of mini series nominations in acting is really surprising.

    • J.

      ETA: i meant in the supporting actor/actress categories. I love Hawaii Five 0 but it’s mind fluff. There are better performances that deserved the nomination

      • Sally

        I’m not understanding the Hawaii Five-O nomination either. It is fun fluff, but not exactly award worthy. Any of the guys from Pacific, or Martin Freeman for Sherlock (which frankly should have gotten a nomination for Best Mini Series).

      • Kate

        @Sally: Totally agree on Sherlock- what an excellent series.

      • Carol

        Where, pray tell, are the nominations for Fringe????? John Noble is amazing, and Anna Torv has really done a stunning job this season.

    • Sarah

      Where is Sherlock? I’m sure that PBS series count as mini series most years and it was the best thing on TV this year.
      Re the Tourist, remember that it had a European director – makes it dear to the HFPA’s heart.

      • Ember

        I don’t think Sherlock was a mini-series. It was Season 1 of a BBC show. (they tend to have short “seasons” on shows). I’m just hoping for a Season 2.

      • murley

        i completely agree – a nomination for sherlock in any category would be well deserved. but the inclusion of the tourist has made this entire thing a complete joke.

    • Chris

      Where else would you have nominated Toy Story 3?

      • Corey

        I could see Toy Story 3 getting Best Original Score and Best Original Song nominations at the Oscars

      • Chris

        There is no original song in TS3!

      • Bluto

        TS3 deserved a Best Picture nom—period. It was an excellent coda to the rest of the films, turned traditional animation on its ear, was one of the highest grossing movies of all time, and was practically demanded by an audience since the last TS movie came out.

      • Chris

        This is not like the Oscars. Animated films are not eligible for Best Drama or Musical/Comedy because they have their own category.

    • Ioanna

      I haven’t seen Burlesque yet, but I bought the soundtrack. “Bound to you” and “You haven’t seen the last of me” are great songs.

    • jasmine

      The golden globes aren’t the biggest fan of the cohen brothers, that’s why true grit wasn’t nominated. but i def think sherlock should have been nominated for sure!

  • Scott

    How come True Grit got nothing?

    • Corey

      Most of the HFPA has yet to see True Grit, so it probably was not even on their ballots to vote for. If I were Joel and Ethan Coen, Jeff Bridges, and everyone else involved in the film, I would not be worried about the Oscars. I think The Way Back is another film almost no one has seen that has a shot at making some noise at the Oscars.

      But if I were the Coen Brothers, I would have released my film earlier or sent out screeners so it could get some Globes love as well

  • Yow

    Yess!! Ryan Gosling and James Franco! I hope both won! Lol, same cathegory. Well I hope Ryan Gosling win!.. 127 Hours shoudve been nominated for best drama..!!!

    • Strepsi

      I know the HFPA trolls for hotties to make their event watchable, but Depp and Jolie can put a sock in it this year: the Gosling-Franco male factor and Stone-WIlliams female factor makes the night a must-watch.

      • anya

        I agree with this!!

  • Kate

    Musical or Comedy categories are a mess this year. Burlesque? The Tourist, and Depp and Jolie?
    Glad to see The Social Network, Black Swan and The King’s Speech do well. Haven’t seen The Fighter yet but it looks pretty formidable as well.
    Surprised that True Grit was basically shut out.

    • Stormy

      Totally stoked that Burlesque is nominated! A super fun, don’t think too hard film. Loved it!

    • RyRyNYC

      Burlesque was a good MUSICAL film … I don’t know why people trashed it – audiences gave it an A- … that’s a higher score than most of the “SERIOUS AWARD CONTENDING” movies.

  • Marianne

    Take out The Tourist and Burlesque and replace it with Easy A and Kick-ass, and it wouldn’t have been a bad list. So anyway, I guess I will be rooting for The Kids are all right.

    But I do love all the love for Inception and TSN, Emma Stone, Glee….and especially Chris Colfer ;) . But of course this list is making me want to see Black Swan, 127 hours and Blue Valentine that much more!

  • Jen

    YAY Katey Sagal!!!!

    • Gina

      So happy for Katey but what about the rest of the cast? Sons of Anarchy is the best.

      • Jeremy

        Ron Pearlman should be nominated as well, but in my personal opinion, Katey Sagal is the best writted performer on the show. She really makes Sons of Anarchy very interesting. Dayton Callie should be nominated as well. He plays the sherif.

  • Lena120

    Also, we can have Scott Caan get nominated for Hawaii-Five-O but Community gets nothing?! I don’t get it.

    • Kel

      Scott Caan is an average at best actor who didn’t deserved to be nominated.

      • Keenan

        I couldn’t believe he was nominated over Aaron Paul

    • LoveBug68

      No John Noble from FRINGE? This list is the biggest joke ever. I can’t believe I was excited to hear who had been nominated.

      • BuffyJunkie

        Right there with you. Walter Bishop is one of the best characters on TV right now. So upset John Noble wasn’t nominated.

      • Olive

        I know they nominated Scott Cann instead of John Noble…Rubbish

    • Strepsi

      Scott Caan is smoking hot.

      • Strepsi

        But John Noble can act circles around him. John Noble has given the best performance of any show in the past year. Period.

      • Olive

        John Noble, Aaron Paul, John Slattery, Ron Pearlman, Michael Pitt, Michael Shannon, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neil, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jared Harris, Nick Offerman, Ted Dansen all can dance circles around Scott Caan, … (If I had more time, I would have added more names)

    • ajay c

      You’re comparing apples to oranges. You cannot compare Community with Hawaii 5-O. They are two types of shows. Also, Community has too much competition. There were so many better comedies out there. That being said, I couldn’t believe Scott Caan and Piper Perabo were both nominated. I don’t mean that in a bad way; I enjoy both shows very much.

      • jk

        Community is hands down the best comedy on television, and that’s coming from someone who likes most of the other comedies nominated. For Community to get absolutely shut out is deplorable, especially because Lea Michele got nominated for Glee. Community is head and shoulder better than Glee and Modern Family.

      • Kathy

        @jk
        While I agree that it’s a travesty that Community got ignored yet again by the awards circuit, you’re really complaining about the wrong category which hurts your argument.

        Lea Michele got nominated for Best Actress, a spot that no one in Community really would have a shot considering it’s such an ensemble show. Alison, Gillian and yvette are all amazing in their roles, but they aren’t leads. The only lead in the show would be Joel so complain instead about the weird love for Hung taking his spot, or BB Theory getting a nom despite a disappointing season so far.

        Lea Michele is beyond talented. Why would you hate on her for no reason? You’ve obviously watched one of the bad episodes this season, or never watched Glee at all. No one on Community would even fit that category.

      Scott Caan is the only good thing about H50. He is the only reason I tune in to that ridiculous show.

      • Seriously

        Scott Caan was the best thing about Entourage this year, wiped the floor up with everyone on that show, except Drama who I think is very underrated. maybe that’s why the nod for H5O?

    christian bale should be for best actor, not supporting.

    complete crap.

    The man was in just as much of a lead role as wahlberg.

    Way to snub him for colin firth, or eisenberg, or some other scrub who coasted along with an average performance in a great movie. BS

    • Jose

      Bale is getting supporting actor because the ad campaign are pushing for a best supporting actor nom.

      and excuse me, but Eisenberg and all those other “scrubs” were excellent in their roles, so not average.

      • n

        please firth is the most bland actor coming from a country full of bland actors. He puts on a pair of sunglasses and a sad face and all of a sudden he’s a perennial oscar contender.

        Eisenberg played eisenberg, a nerd

        If that’s what you call a carefully honed craft then god speed, I respect your opinion, but I don’t agree with it

      • Jen

        Hey ‘n,’ did you know Christian Bale is from that country full of bland actors?

      • Tony

        Firth has had ONE Oscar nomination ever. Perennial?

      • Niix Starkyller

        Obviously someone missed the subtleties of The Social Network’s script and Eisenberg’s perf as a person extremely driven and extremely conflicted. I suppose we should bow to the histrionics of Bale’s jaw-grinding, bullet stares, and intense, wet yelling as the only standard of acting.

        I respect your right to have an opinion, “n”, but I don’t respect your opinion at all.

    • Kate

      The STUDIO is promoting Bale as supporting, which is actually SMART because Firth has actor in the bag. Bale can either win supporting, or lose to Firth in lead.
      It baffles me that both Bening and Moore are in lead contention. Instead of both of them winning, one in lead and one in supporting, both will lose out eventually to Portman, while Mila Kunis or HBC will win supporting.

      • n

        Again, baffled why firth gets so much love. Nothing he does in the film is particularly difficult. He just benefits off of being the lead in a great movie

      • Jane

        ‘n’ – just stop posting. I like Bale as much as the next person, but your Firth remarks are idiotic.

      • mackey3000

        I think Amy Adams will take Supporting.

      • m1

        @mackey3000: I agree.

    • ajay c

      Bale was supporting Mark. It’s fine

    • Jim

      Colin Firth doesn’t just deserve to be nominated, he deserves to WIN. He can out act all the other nominees and he never receives the recognition he’s due.

      I’m baffled as to why people can’t discern quality acting.

    • mjade27

      I am sure he wants to be in the supporting category, and the studio wants him there, too. He has a great chance to win it – the lead category is more competitive this year.

    • m1

      He’s supporting from what I’ve heard.

  • AJ

    Wow, rough year for Comedy/Musical movies. The Kids Are All Right is literally the only possible winner.

    • AJ

      ….ladies and gentlemen, Golden Globe nominee….Jennifer Love Hewitt?

      • Matt

        My thoughts exactly! Though i did like her performance- I just never thought the HFPA would give her a nomination. Yeah for Romola Garai in the same category, though the award will def. go to Danes

      • Stef

        I know! And for the Client List!? A total guilty pleasure – a southern housewife with a photographic memory gets a job as a hooker pretending to be a masseuse for her family! But that is just the funniest thing ever I think.

    • Mel

      Please Give should have been in that category too. Maybe it came out too early and was forgotten but it was my favorite movie this year.

    • Diane

      Scott Pilgrim vs. the World or any of the animated films should have taken the Tourist and Burlesque’s place

      • Chris

        Animated films cannot be nominated in the drama or comedy/musical categories. Only the animated award for the Golden Globes.

    • Marie

      So true about comedies, and The Kids is way more of a comedy-drama. Also, didn’t Alice get pretty sucky reviews?
