nominees//GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS


The Golden Globe Awards (a not-as-classy version of the Oscars) announced their nominees for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards with a few surprise omissions. The Tree of Life was completely snubbed and Melissa McCarthy (who has quickly become the Supporting Actress to beat) didn't get the mention that she's been getting lately. There were a lot of surprise additions to the list, too. The Ides of March got a lot of notice, as did Carnage. Overall the Golden Globes have lost some of their stamina over the years, choosing to recognize stars over talent (which is probably why Madonna and Angelina Jolie's projects were nominated...just to guarantee they'll be there).
