Happy Tuesday! It's officially time to get upset about the Golden Globe nominations that were announced this morning! There's a lot to talk about, so let's just jump into it!
The Golden Globes are set to take place on January 5, 2020, and some major contenders for awards this year include Marriage Story, The Irishman, The Crown, Chernobyl, Big Little Lies, and The Act.
Also, it is of the utmost importance that we all are prepared for Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt to have a reunion that we can all actually watch with our very own eyes, because it'll be ON CAMERA. Yes, they've hung out since they split, but I highly doubt most of us were in that room with them, so this will be very interesting to observe.
(BTW, Jennifer was nominated for her role in The Morning Show and Brad Pitt was nominated for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.)
But per usual, people are indignant about the nominations because so many good movies and shows and actors were snubbed!
Here are just a FEW of the snubs this year:
- Zendaya for her stellar performance in Euphoria. Excuse me while I cry glitter tears of frustration.
- Laura Dern was nominated for her role as a divorce lawyer in Marriage Story but was snubbed for her "I will not not be rich!" line in Big Little Lies. Big effing mistake!
- Greta Gerwig (Little Women) and other female directors including Lulu Wang (The Farewell), Lorene Scafaria (Hustlers), Marielle Heller (Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood) and Olivia Wilde (Booksmart) were shut out of the all-male category.
Side note: The director of Honey Boy, which was also rudely snubbed, tweeted that she was "on the inside for the first time this year" and cautioned everyone to "not look for justice in the awards system." Alma Har'el added, "These are not our people and they do not represent us."
Okay, but I'm still upset! Continuing:
- Robert De Niro was a favorite for The Irishman, so yeah, people are a little upset about this one!
- Robert Pattinson's absurd accent in The King is nowhere to be found on this nomination list and neither is Timothée Chalamet's bowl cut! Who even made this list!?
- Michael B. Jordan for Just Mercy. He should be nominated every year no matter what, so it's even more upsetting that he didn't get anything for this role.
- Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems. Once you see this movie, you'll get all the hype around Adam's performance.
- Sandra Oh didn't get nominated for Killing Eve, which is interesting considering she won the Best Actress in a Drama Series category last year.
- Lupita Nyong'o wasn't acknowledged for her haunting performance in Us and neither were Winston Duke's juicy thighs!
- Regina King didn't get any props for Watchmen. :(
- And these movies and shows didn't receive a SINGLE nomination: Ad Astra, Clemency, Dark Waters, Downton Abbey, Honey Boy, Just Mercy, The Lighthouse, The Peanut Butter Falcon, Queen & Slim, Uncut Gems, Us, Waves, Euphoria, The Good Place, The Handmaid's Tale, Orange Is The New Black, PEN15, Silicon Valley, This Is Us, Veep, Watchmen, When They See Us, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Major, major bummer. At least we'll always have Brad and Jen...
