awards_golden globes

The road of awards season is a long one to travel – one full of shameless politicking and indulgent self-congratulations – and today marks the first big stop on this arduous journey: the announcement of the nominations for the Golden Globes. Every year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announces its nominees, every year film fans all over the world complain about how all of their favorites got left out, and every year even those in charge of the voting process still scratch their heads as to why all of their awards are still split along the lines of comedy and drama. Who knows? It’s tradition!

Below are the nominations for feature films. Now is your chance to pore over them and begin to ask all of the important questions like: If ParaNorman was the best animated movie of the year, why does it seem like it’s the only one that didn’t get nominated? How can The Silver Linings Playbook get so much representation in the comedy section of the awards, while David O. Russell gets locked out of the Best Director category? And, perhaps most importantly, who in the heck suddenly decided that Salmon Fishing in the Yemen was a good movie?

If you wish to contact the HFPA with these questions directly, or perhaps see who they chose to nominate in their television categories, head on over to their official site and get it done. For everyone else, enjoy the comfort of being able to stay right here on FSR. And, please, let us know what your biggest gripes are in the comments.
