71st Annual Golden Globes Nominations Have Been Announced

And the nominees are...
  |   Comments

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed their nominees for the 2014 Golden Globe.  There were a lot of familar names for those who waste time paying attention to film-award bloviators, 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle tied with the most at seven nominations each, although seeing American Hustle along with Her, Nebraska, and The Wolf Of Wall Street in the Comedy category seemed a bit odd and questionable.  For example, Spike Jonze's Her has humor in it, but I want to see a producer or HFPA representative tell me with a straight face how that romantic drama is considered a comedy.  Seems more calculated as if they are trying to avoid competing with 12 Years. 

Television also had some head-scratchers as well.  Maybe it's just the circles I run in, but next to Breaking Bad, I can't think what was more talked about then The Red Wedding sequence from Games of Thrones, so it's omission for Best Drama is a surprise.  And isn't every comedy better than the tired Big Bang Theory?         

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return as hosts for the ceremony, which will be broadcast on January 12, 2014. Woody Allen is being honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."  

Were your favorites picked?  Or did they get overlooked?  Make your voice heard in the comments.  [Update: The winners are in bold.]
