Golden Globe Nominations Announced: Big Surprises on Nomination Morning

The movie nominations were slightly surprising. Nobody expected Philomena or Rush to get Picture nominations on the Drama side, especially over Lee Daniels’ The Butler (which couldn’t even get a nomination for Oprah Winfrey). Some big shifts have happened in those categories. Captain Phillips did better than expected also. Greengrass in Director and Abdi in Supporting are huge boosts to their campaign. And American Hustle continues to dominate in almost every category. It could be a quiet darkhorse that takes the Oscar in a couple of months.

On the television side, the big news is that Homeland was completely shut out of the nominations. It swept the top drama category two years in a row, Claire Danes won the past two years, and Damian Lewis picked up one last year. This year…not even a nomination. Pretty shocking. Otherwise it was a predictable group of nominees. Brooklyn Nine-Nine fared the best out of the new comedies, although I would’ve rather seen Andre Braugher nominated in the acting category instead of Samberg.
