72-golden-globes-nominations

Nominations for The 72nd Golden Globe Awards were revealed earlier today at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Jeremy Piven, Kate Beckinsale, Peter Krause, and Paula Patton were on hand to announce those being honored by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Leading the pack with seven nominations is Oscar frontrunner Birdman which received acting nods for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone along with Best Director and Best Musical or Comedy. Coming in close behind with five nominations each were Boyhood and The Imitation Game. The Martin Luther King pic, Selma, rebounded after yesterday’s SAG snub by scoring multiple nominations.

Noticeably absent were Clint Eastwood’s Sniper and Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken. They walked away with nothing even though both have been in the mix during this awards season. Interstellar only received one nom, for Hans Zimmer’s score. Are the HFPA going legit and no longer the massive starf*ckers they once were?

Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal, once considered long shots in the acting categories, followed up their Screen Actors Guild honors with Globe nominations. Julianne Moore, who’s considered the one to beat for Best Actress, scored two acting nods- Still Alice and Map To The Stars. In a surprising twist, Quvenzhané Wallis got a mention for Annie. Who knew the HFPA were such fans of everyone’s favorite orphan?

On the television front, Fargo and True Detective led the way with five and four nominations respectively. One of my new favorite shows, Jane The Virgin, received some love for Best Actress In A Comedy and Best Comedy. Viola Davis also notched one for How To Get Away With Murder.

This year’s long list of snubs include Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, The Comeback and The Walking Dead. Perennial nominee Modern Family failed to score one for Best Comedy. The big names not to land an acting nod include The Normal Heart’s Julia Roberts, Scandal’s Kerry Washington and Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany.

The Golden Globe Awards will air on January 11, hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Check out all the nominees below.

2015-golden-globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back for a third time to host the Golden Globes. Hopefully, their stint doesn’t end as a trilogy and somehow NBC convinces them to sign on for more years. Not only is their turn well received by critics, but by viewers as well. Last year saw a 10-year high for the telecast.

The 2015 Golden Globes air live on January 11 on NBC. Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Greer Grammer was recently named Miss Golden Globe 2015 while George Clooney is this year’s recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

For the first promo, the comedic duo joke about what they’re wearing for the big night. Both spout out hilarious nonsensical fashion jargon complete with faux designer names. Check it out below.

Every year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association picks a spawn of Hollywood’s elite to assist on stage during the live ceremony. During the first event of the Golden Globes Awards season held at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood, Greer Grammer was named Miss Golden Globe 2015. She’s the daughter of Frasier actor Kelsey Grammer and Barrie Buckner. Kelsey dated Barrie after his first of three divorces. The 22-year-old was named after actress Greer Garson.

“I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year’s Miss Golden Globe,” said an excited Greer. “It’s truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of.”

Greer currently stars in the MTV series Awkward. She will next be seen in the upcoming An Evergreen Christmas with Naomi Judd and Robert Loggia which will be released this Christmas, and in the new season of ABC Family’s Melissa and Joey. The rising star also appeared in Life Partners with Leighton Meester and Adam Brody.

2015-cecil-b-demille-award

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday that George Clooney will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes. Association president Theo Kingma cites Clooney’s achievements on both sides of the camera and his humanitarian efforts around the world as to why he was chosen. The award is given annually to an individual who’s made “an incredible impact on the world of entertainment.”

Previous honorees include Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg. Last year, Woody Allen won the prestigious prize but didn’t show up to accept the lifetime achievement award. Don’t expect the same thing to happen this year. You just know Clooney will be there looking fine with his future wife Amal Alamuddin along his side. At age 53, Clooney is one of the younger recipients, tying Robin Williams as the tenth youngest.

Clooney has two Oscars and four Golden Globes to his credit. The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be held on January 11, 2015 and will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again. Do you think Clooney has done enough to earn the honor? Weigh in below.

Golden Globes Hit 10-Year Ratings High

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows
2014-golden-globes-ratings-opening-monologue

Bringing back Tina Fey and Amy Poehler proved a wise decision for NBC. The lethal comedic combo delivered a 10-year high in viewers, with 20.9 million, up from 19.7 million last year. With regards to the coveted 18-49 demo, it scored a 6.5 rating, up a tenth of a point from 2013 and its best mark since 2007.

Admittedly, I was a little worried Fey and Poehler wouldn’t be able to capture lightning in a bottle again, but they eased my concerns immediately with their hilarious opening monologue. That George Clooney Gravity dig was my favorite of the night. Speaking of digs, after Poehler won, Tina commented that there was a special place in hell for her co-host. Clearly that was directed at Taylor Swift. The country-pop singer took offense to a joke at last year’s Globes and took aim at Tina and Amy in a Vanity Fair interview.

Other memorable moments (good or bad) include Jacqueline Bisset’s slow-moving walk to the stage and following babbling speech, Poehler as Mr. Golden Globe, Emma Thompson barefoot and drinking on stage, all the Julia Louis-Dreyfus audience moments, and speeches by Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Matthew McConaughey. Rewatch the hilarious opening monologue and all the winners below.

71st-golden-globes-nominations

It’s no surprise that 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle led the way with seven nominations each when the 71st annual Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning. Both have done well with all the critics awards leading up to today’s announcement, especially the former. The latter’s cast were showered with praises, earning a nod in every acting comedy category.

What was surprising, if not shocking, was one notable snub. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association are notorious star f**kers. They have a long history of nominating substandard performances in hopes of filling up the ballroom with famous people. However this year, lesser known names made the cut while arguably one of the most famous, if not powerful, person got completely shunned. Oprah Winfrey, my dear… you don’t get a nod! You don’t get a nod! In fact, no one from the star-studded Lee Daniels’ The Butler, including the film itself was nominated. The film was not only a box office hit but a critical favorite as well.

The silver lining is that there is absolutely no crossover with the HFPA voters and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. However, it’s still nice to be nominated given the show is widely seen and offers a great opportunity for those in the race to do some hardcore publicity and campaigning. With regards to the HFPA, I’d still be worried if I was one of the 90-something GG voters. We all know how long Winfrey likes to hold a grudge. Just go ask David Letterman.

Check out all the nominations below. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014. I have high hopes they’ll deliver another winning performance.

2014-golden-globes-promo

During last night’s The Sound of Music Live!, NBC debuted the first promo for the 2014 Golden Globes. Unlike Carrie Underwood’s wooden acting, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are two of my favorite things. The comedic BFFs return for their second time hosting the funnest awards show of the year. Earlier this year, the duo signed on for two more hosting stints after their well-reviewed debut as Globes hosts.

In the clip, Amy is on piano duties while Tina attempts to give a preview of their opening number. Unfortunately, they’re off-key and can’t harmonize. While musically they never hit the right note, I have no doubt they will hit all the perfect comedic notes come Golden Globes night. The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC on January 12, 2014. This year’s Miss Golden Globe is Sosie Bacon- daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Watch the promo below.

Best decision by NBC in recent memory. The peacock network announced Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the 71st and 72nd annual Golden Globes. Truly amazing.

“We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.” – A spokesperson for NBC said in a statement

After last year’s sensational performance, I couldn’t be anymore excited. Those ladies killed it. One person who’s probably not feeling this development is Taylor Swift. She didn’t appreciate being the butt of one of their jokes during last year’s telecast. Poehler’s rep jokingly tweeted, “Sorry @taylorswift13 but Amy & Tina will be back for the next two @goldenglobes.” I’m betting the “22″ singer stays clear from this year’s event ;)

Just in case you forgot how hilarious the 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation actress were on the 70th annual show, I’ve embedded their best moments below. The 2014 Golden Globes will be held in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 12.
