    No Johnny Depp for Black Mass??? WHAT???!!?? And still no love for Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo in Spotlight??? I thought they would get some recognition at the Globes after being shut out at SAG Awards. Their Oscar chances are looking slimmer and slimmer now.

    And The Martian is a comedy??? LOLOLOLOLOL!!!! Oh HFPA, you never fail to amaze me! 😀

    • kariya33

      You’re right on! No Johnny Depp is a crime … and both Mark and Michael should be there for Spotlight!

    • Robert Graff

      Depp had only one note to hit in Black Mass. Average movie and average performance. The only reason you’re calling for Depp is because you like Depp.

      • clone

        Actually no I don’t. I’m not a fan of Depp at all. But I heard that many critics praise his performance in Black Mass and from what I see on the trailer, seems like Depp really gave it all out in this movie. All that combined with Depp’s big superstar name and the fact how much the Globes really loves him (remember The Tourist?), so I thought that Depp would be a sure bet for Best Actor. Turns out I’m wrong.

    • ldstep

      Agree with you about Keaton and Ruffalo in ‘Spotlight.’ Outstanding movie and both of those actors should have gotten a nod — especially Ruffalo. He brought so much energy and passion to the role. Ruffalo is an amazing actor.

  • ReallyReallyBigMan

    Nice to see Mad Max continuing to get the awards recognition it deserve. Too bad no love for Daredevil in TV. At least give a nomination to Vincent D’Onofrio!

    • MovieBuff

      Fury Road ruined the franchise. I should be getting a razzie, not any of these.

      • Caddy C

        So says the ironically titled MovieBuff, who failed to notice Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome exists.

        • MovieBuff

          I notice it exists, and it’s pretty bad. But it’s a bad movie in the franchise, not a franchise ruiner.

      • JC Garcia

        Seriously? You should be named MovieBLUFF !

        • MovieBuff

          Awww, did my comment hurt your bad taste?

        • Brent Taylor

          Even within the genre it was made (CGI Overloaded Mess for people with attention deficit issues), it was utter crap. And yeah, Razzies are in order especially if anyone thinks this to be a well made movie or that any acting occurred.

  • Rodycaz

    QT not for Best Director? Damn, hopefully he’ll get the Oscar nom.

  • Michał Karcz

    Funny nominations. Some of them are just farce. Each year is worse because of lack of good production.

  • Mark

    The Martian was a comedy/musical? Now I know I’m back in Kansas. Farce to these murdererd, don’t THINK SO!

    • clone

      Of course it is. All those singing and dancing just brought me to tears, esp. the one where Matt Damon did a solo number up high on the hills.

      • Mark

        Like Fred Astaire, no gravity to fight. Just astronaut air…

  • BlackAce

    Pissed off that Creed only got one nomination

    • BillH

      Maybe Ryan Coogler could have taken Ridley Scott or Tom McCarthy’s nod.

      • BlackAce

        Yeah I am definitely for replacing Ridley with Ryan. The Martian was nice but I can’t help but feel that Ridley has done better. I am however, ok with Tom to be honest. Hopefully the Oscars doesn’t snub Creed as hard as the Golden Globes just did.

  • Vits/Vicente Torres

    1) THE MARTIAN really is a musical. Remember all the disco songs? Jejeje! Seriously though, it has a lot of humour. Maybe not enough to be considered a comedy, but enough to debate about the genre.
    2) I (and others) thought that a nomination for Meryl Streep was a safe thing. RICKI & THE FLASH is both a comedy and a musical. Instead, they nominated its male equivalent DANNY COLLINS.
    3) SPOTLIGHT is the only movie nominated for both directing and writing? It’s obvious it will win.
    4) EL CLUB! Vamos Chile!
    5) Jamie Lee Curtis isn’t the lead in SCREAM QUEENS!

    • kariya33

      Too funny! At least The Martian has an excellent chance to win now … the competition isn’t as fierce as the DRAMA category.

      • Bradly Martin

        It’s funny between Martian as a musical comedy and Trumbo as a Drama I’d say those to can be easily switched.

  • Jhay Khay Cee

    Wish Parson and Big Bang will be nominated for the following years.

  • Jared

    Glad that mad max and the martian got in. Disappointed that Depp wasn’t nominated for Black Mass. Also, unpopular opinion: Benicio Del Toro should have been nominated instead of Sylvester Stallone and Sicario is far better than Creed

    • Gaetan GT

      Apples and oranges.

      • Jared

        Not really, they’re both well liked movies that many consider to be the best of the year and dark horse oscar contenders. I personally found creed to be a fairly average and predictable boxing drama while sicario is one of my favorite movies this year.

        • Bradly Martin

          Sicario got so much love when it came out. From audiences and critics. These award shows are to damn fickle.

          • GWalcott

            They’re rigged. Will Smith knew he was getting awards.

    • MovieBuff

      I’m really disappointed Sicario isn’t here at all. Even more disappointed to see Fury Road (I refuse to call that turd ‘Mad Max’) getting so much love

      • Brent Taylor

        Thanks for putting it out there. Mad Max/Fury Road was a mess of a movie and complete waste of time watching and money spent making it. And awards consideration a complete joke.

      • GWalcott

        Sicario was one of the best movies ever made. Will Smith for best actor? Seriously? Benicio del Toro’s performance in Sicario was better than any of those nominees.

        • MovieBuff

          Goddamn right! Both Del Toro and Blunt gave smashing performances!

  • Gaetan GT

    Lady Gaga for AHS? She is by far the worst “actress” they had in 5 seasons.

    • clone

      Agree. Gaga is no Jessica Lange. I guess the Globes is just too desperate to have a big star name at their show to boost their ratings.

      • Adela Cuba

        I couldn’t agreed more with you both. She was the worth I ever seen in my whole life. Actually I only was able to stand two episodes.

    • Brent Taylor

      And one of the fuggliest famous people on the planet. Spotting her in any programming or news story is a Pavlovian urge to change the channel.

  • blankczech

    Haters saying these nominations are poor because television and movies are dreadful nowadays. Those haters must be young because an old fart like me who had to endure the shows of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s thinks these programs / movies are absolutely terrific. So good in fact that a lot of outstanding performances have been omitted like Matthew Rhys’s superior acting on The Americans.
    I look at a lot of categories and wonder how you can choose between the nominees because they were all so good.

    • Brent Taylor

      Unfortunately The Americans went off the rails a few seasons ago.

    • GWalcott

      Check out Sicario. It’s better than any of these movies. One of the greatest films ever in my opinion.

  • HMS

    It would be nice to read a Golden Globes article and finally see Doctor Who nominated.

    • Bradly Martin

      Peter Capaldi sure can act. Even fans that feel the show is boring predictable and plodding all agree to this point.

  • Mister Sushi

    Let’s go Spotlight! WOOT WOOT!

  • onionrovirosa

    SPY is the best comedy of the year.

    • MovieBuff

      Aren’t comedies supposed to be funny?

      • Rooby Doo

        You keep slamming Spy (about 90% on RT) and giving love to Ted 2 (about 1/2 %). Maybe you just like a particular TYPE of comedy that the rest of us aren’t in the right state of mind to find very humorous.

        • MovieBuff

          Because Ted 2 was full of clever dialogue. Spy was just “fat lady is a better spy than competent spies and somehow this equals comedy”

          • Rooby Doo

            Well, because Ted was so good I watched Ted 2 and I sure didn’t hear much clever dialogue. Again, maybe you have to be in the right frame of mind. Each to his own. My opinion (and that of 7000 critics) is certainly no better than yours.

          • MovieBuff

            It’s possible that since I only saw the uncensored version, that the theatrical version is crap

      • Brent Taylor

        Unfortunately these days stupid = funny.

  • AFEKT MEDIA

    YES MR ROBOT!!! F-Society!!

    • Brent Taylor

      Worst, most overrated, crapfest on television. Just an absolutely awful show in any way that it is possible to make bad entertainment — lousy acting, lousy script, boring lethargic monotony wrapped in vulgarity and the tale of reprehensible characters impossible to care in the least about. The abyss (sphincter) of 2015 media.

  • Melanie Ruiz

    I wonder why “IT FOLLOWS” is not there, “mika Monroe” was a astonishing.

  • Sandra Garcia

    Yum, Eva Green is fabulous in “Penny Dreadful.” Doubt if she’ll win, but great to see recognition for her acting skills. Also pleased to see Regina King nominated. She deserved an award for always being amazing.

  • MovieBuff

    I wonder why awful “comedies” like Spy and Trainwreck are here, but something actually funny like Ted 2 isn’t.

    • Bradly Martin

      Sequels have a hard time getting nominated. Will go with that.

      • MovieBuff

        fair point.

    • phylos

      Because only morons found Ted 2 funny, duh.

    • Caddy C

      Could you please change your name? Its offending my eyes to see it over a comment lauding Ted 2.

      • MovieBuff

        So what? You being offended means nothing.

    • juice

      Troll

      • MovieBuff

        Nope. Just an opinion.

    • Evan

      I’m guessing it’s because both Trainwreck and Spy were better received by both audiences and reviewers than Ted 2 was. Just because you think it’s funnier doesn’t mean everyone else agrees.

  • phylos

    I’m glad at least Eva Green got recognized, even if that series deserves much more.
    Same with Silicon Valley, even if only got the consolation nomination for best comedy and nothing else.

  • rockyrd

    Any of the actors in Wolf Hall can act circles around those who were nominated.

  • Vince

    Believe me when I tell all you little kids that the Revenant will win the academy award for best picture

  • Evan

    Once again, Tatiana Maslany was snubbed! She was finally nominated for an Emmy, but the Globes still haven’t nominated her for her brilliant work in the TV series Orphan Black. Shame, shame, shame.

  • HumanLiveStock

    Should have droped either Spy or Trainwreck in comedy or musical catagory. Straight Outta Compton was a much better film.

  • Pyes

    Ugh is this a particularly bad year for movies?

    • Brent Taylor

      Must be. A lot, and I mean an awful lot, of crap is being honored with awards.

  • Treeflower

    Go Patrick, Jeffrey, Lily, Paul, J-Law, Helen, Jane, Dame Maggie, Cate, LEO, Gaga, Game of Thrones, Mad Max, Mozart in the Jungle (Bernadette=amazing), Inside Out (etc.; love animation), Love & Mercy, OitNB, & everybody/thing else I particularly like! ^^

  • William

    I’d give President Obama the Oscar. He got the Nobel Peace Prize for no reason, he needs the Oscar before he leaves office, just because.

  • Harry Hoover

    What a bunch of bad movies. Mad Max? Are you kidding… A feminist wet dream.

    The only time you see kissing anymore is lesbians and Homosexuals.

    Where are the blacks? No black woman? Might as well make this the “Liberal Social Engineering” awards program.

  • The Martian nominated for best comedy or musical? WTF?!?
