The Golden Globe Comedy and Musical nominees: Where laughter goes to die

Want to hear something funny? These are this year’s Golden Globe nominees for Best Comedy or Musical: American Hustle, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Some of these you probably haven’t seen yet, but you’d be right to suspect that they aren’t exactly knee-slappers. (Your nostrils will be safe from soda when you eventually watch them.) In fact, they’re dramas and romances, albeit ones that might be slightly more offbeat or idiosyncratic than their Best Drama brethren. “Here’s the good news,” says Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay, “they’re fantastic movies on the list. But we were joking that between all those [Best Comedy nominees], there’s probably, like, nine laughs.”

“I thought This Is the End was a really original, raucous, edgy, great comedy. Why have the category if you’re not going to use it?” he added. “The good news is none of us got into comedy expecting awards, so I don’t really care that much…but we were kind of laughing. They finally give us a category, and now they’ve just pushed us out of it.”

Several sleepy stars are already reacting to today’s big news — their Golden Globe nominations. See statements from celebs including Matthew McConaughey, Kerry Washington, and Amy Adams below; we’ll update this post as more pour in.

No Oprah? No Scorsese? What were the Golden Globes' most egregious snubs?

enough-said-09.jpg

The Golden Globe nomination were announced this morning, and in addition to providing a boost to surprise contenders like Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) for Best Supporting Actress and Ron Howard’s racing movie, Rush, for Best Drama, there were others who were dealt a setback by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Oprah Winfrey and Lee Daniels’ The Butler? You don’t get a nomination! You don’t get a nomination!

Wolf of Wall Street‘s Martin Scorsese, who won in 2011 for directing Hugo and has been nominated in the category seven other times? Feel free to make other plans on Jan. 14.

Saving Mr. Banks earned just one nomination (Emma Thompson), with the HFPA ultimately deciding that Captain Phillips would be Tom Hanks’s prize.

And what about James Gandolfini for Enough Said? Back in September, an HFPA member hinted to EW that Gandolfini’s prospects for a Best Supporting Actor nomination weren’t too great, you know, because he’s not able to attend. Well… you can’t say the HFPA are liars.

What was your least favorite snub from the Golden Globe movies nominations? Sound off in the comments. (And check out our list of TV snubs and surprises!)

This week's cover: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take over EW!

You know Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as extremely funny actors-writers-producers-hosts. But these longtime friends are adding another hyphen to their names this week: Guest editors.

After Entertainment Weekly put them in charge of this week’s issue (Thanks for the 30 percent raises, Tina and Amy! That wasn’t a joke, right?), Fey and Poehler assigned several stories, including one in which Mad Men‘s leading man Jon Hamm interviewed Ellie Kemper, who will star in a new NBC comedy that Fey is executive producing. (As it turns out, Hamm was Kemper’s acting teacher back in St. Louis.) There’s also a feature on the upcoming Comedy Central series Broad City, which stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, and is exec produced by Poehler. The pair — who will team up next month to emcee the Golden Globes again — even penned the Must List and Bullseye. And Fey and Poehler clearly took the job very seriously, as you can see from their opening letter to readers: “If you are reading this ‘Letter From the Guest Editors,’ it probably means you have read all the other parts of the magazine at least five times and are in some kind of isolated and desperate situation. If it’s a bathroom emergency, try elevating your feet on an upturned wastebasket. If you are in the trunk of a drug lord’s car, try doing that thing Walter White does where he throws chemicals at the ground and they explode.”

Jennifer Lawrence explains Golden Globes 'I beat Meryl!' quip -- VIDEO

“It’s never a good idea for me to wing it,” Jennifer Lawrence told David Letterman last night after he asked about her Golden Globes acceptance speech. Her fans, of course, would disagree — when Lawrence wings it, she tends to produce endlessly quotable lines about everything from her first meeting with Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence (“I spit egg inside his mouth when I was talking. Into his mouth”) to her post-red carpet ritual (“The first thing I do when I get off a carpet is take my heels off, rub my makeup everywhere, and basically pick up a garbage can and go ‘Rawwrrrrr!’ and dump it all over my head”).

Then again, sometimes Lawrence’s goofy sense of humor can get the Silver Linings Playbook star into trouble. Take that Golden Globes speech, for instance: Upon accepting her award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical, the first thing Lawrence said was, “What does it say? ‘I beat Meryl!'” Many viewers at home — including prolific Globes tweeter Lindsay Lohan — were scandalized; what right did this 22-year-old have to diss the world’s most celebrated actress?

But others understood what Lawrence was really doing — and while on the Late Show, she took the opportunity to set the record straight.  READ FULL STORY

Chad Lowe liked Lena Dunham's Golden Globes shout-out as much as you did

The funniest thing about Lena Dunham thanking Chad Lowe during her second Golden Globes acceptance speech last night? The people in Dunham’s demographic — 26 and younger — probably had no idea why she was giving a shout-out to Chris Traeger‘s brother.

Awards buffs, of course, know that Dunham was making a reference to Hilary Swank’s Best Actress acceptance speech at the 2000 Oscars. After receiving her award, the Boys Don’t Cry star neglected to thank her then-husband Lowe — even as the ceremony’s camerapeople kept cutting to a teary Chad sitting in the audience. Swank and Lowe eventually got divorced, though not until seven years had passed (and Swank had snagged another Best Actress statuette. That time, Lowe was one of the first people she thanked).

What those same buffs may not know, though, is that Dunham actually pledged to thank Lowe if she ever won an award way back in August.  READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan tweets trenchant Golden Globes analysis

It will surprise no one to learn that Lindsay Lohan evidently was not invited to last night’s Golden Globes. But thanks to the Internet, we can know all of her thoughts on the event anyway — the Canyons star spent Sunday evening live-tweeting the ceremony, proving once and for all that the Globes are just as important as a presidential debate.

Lindsay kicked the night off by reminding us all that she was once the fresh-faced star of Mean Girls, thus inspiring the Twittersphere to contemplate its own mortality:

She went on to express controversial opinions about Damien Lewis (“he is incredible”), Paul Rudd (“Paul Rudd is the best. Ever”), and Jessica Lange, who is Lohan’s “FAVOURITE!” even though neither she nor Lange is British (or Canadian). A tiny bit of negativity crept in, though, when Lindsay sensed that somebody was disrespecting her iconic Prairie Home Companion co-star:

Golden Globes 2013: After-parties boast celebs from Quentin Tarantino to Selena Gomez

Near-freezing temps were no match for Sunday night Globe winners such as Quentin Tarantino and celebrities like Selena Gomez, who were determined to keep the party going following the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Full of booze and ravenous for food, stars flocked to several bashes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel just after the awards ceremony, from HBO’s soiree at the downstairs Circa 55 restaurant and The Weinstein Company’s party at the old Trader Vic’s, to the NBC-Focus Features-Universal’s rooftop shindig, Warner Bros. InStyle‘s huge party in the Oasis Courtyard, and Fox’s tented bash just outside the hotel.
