  • clone

    Lady Gaga won??? Huh??!?? O_o

    • Dr.Malicious, MD

      Illuminati confirmed.

    • clone

      And Viola Davis should’ve won.

  • Julian Marsico

    How the hell did Fargo not win?!?!

    • Zartan The Destroyer

      Probably some brand of FX bias, if I am wrong then I am wrong but FX has comedies that never get nominations either that are far funnier than some of the stuff up there nominated.

    • podaddy

      I just read the damned article and I can’t remember what the hell won over Fargo….scrolling up to see, oh yeah Wolf freaking Hall. Ridiculous. All due respect, Wolf Hall was quite good, but a total snoozefest much of the way thru. Fargo was the clear winner. I used to believe the GG awards were the best of the lot, but their voters have lost their way. gaga over Dunst? WTF! Slater over Ben Mendelson from Bloodline? DOUBLE WTF!

      • Jjajangmyeon Kimbap

        Any committee who awards Lady Gaga (rolls eyes) best actress totally invalidates it’s self. Seriously a big middle finger to all working and struggling actresses out there.

    • rantingsw3de

      Because it’s derivative and boring and pales in comparison to the film.

      • CT

        Good point. That probably explains why it’s the highest rated TV show on this site with both critics and fans alike. That would make you one of the 4% who have trouble with well-written, complex stories, or you’ve never watched the show. Either way, you might want to stick with The Muppets.

        • rantingsw3de

          Sounds like I hit a sore spot! Must get rather boring choosing to watch something based on a good review.

    • CT

      A lot of people are asking that question today. Then again, this is an awards show that placed The Martian in the best comedy/musical category so it certainly wasn’t aiming for credibility..

  • Thescaredshadow

    Kirsten Dunst was fucking robbed!!!

    • Dr.Malicious, MD

      Its just a UFO.

    • podaddy


    • CT

      I’m not sure which is worse. Giving The Martian the nod for best comedy/musical or giving a talentless hack the Golden Globe Dunst overwhelmingly deserved.

  • John Teevan

    Lady Gaga wins, and the Golden Globes are now tarnished.

    • SnidgetAsphodel

      Why’s that?

      • clone

        Gee maybe because Gaga was awful in AHS and that she shouldn’t have been nominated in the first place, let alone won?

      • Zartan The Destroyer

        because she dresses up like a weirdo in her day to day work, it’s not acting for her, it’s just saying lines rather than singing and it wasn’t good either.

      • John Teevan

        Aside from other comments, I need to revise my comment to say “… the Golden Globes are now further tarnished.”

        One of the best Golden Globes bought to date.

    • podaddy

      This was a name recognition vote, I had lowered the bar so much when I heard Kirsten Dunst was going to be in Fargo. I thought she would ruin it like Vince Vaughn ruined True Detective, boy was I wrong. She was fantastic and far more worthy than Gaga.

  • Zartan The Destroyer

    The circle jerk continues. At least Robot and Slater won and Dicaprio might get all he deserves this year.

    • clone

      Yeah seems like Leo is FINALLY getting the Oscar. 🙂

    • podaddy

      I found Slater’s performance to be equal to all of his other performances thru the years, i.e. completely mediocre and slightly annoying. Mr Robot deserved the win, but Ben Mendelson’s performance in “Bloodline” was the clear winner in this category, Slater was not even top three, IMO

  • Rodycaz

    Gaga winning an acting award? And over Dunst? What a joke. Kinda shows that some awards just go to the most popular name.

    • SnidgetAsphodel

      God forbid Gaga has acting talent. Ahhh the world is ending….?! smh. Get over it. Talent is recognized.

      • Dr.Malicious, MD

        Oh yeah she has talent…in singing….

      • Rodycaz

        Again, what a joke.

      • Zartan The Destroyer


      • Justin McGill

        Where? Sorry. I have no bone to pick on her music gig.. But I have been supremely underwhelmed with Gaga on American Horror Story.. and when she’s on the screen with Evan Peters that kid smokes her in the dust. A real shame he didn’t even get a nomination.

      • CT

        Ok, so you’ve just shown us you either didn’t watch Fargo and witness the incredible performance by Dunst or you don’t have a clue what quality acting looks like. Then again, this was an awards show that thought The Martian was a comedy……Get back to us when a real awards show [The Emmy’s] rightfully gives Dunst an Emmy in a category Gaga isn’t even nominated. And from the sound things you didn’t watch the GG’s either. Otherwise you would have noticed the complete silence in the room when Gaga’s name was announced.

    • clone

      I know right. Dunst should’ve won. Even Queen Latifah would make more sense than Gaga.

  • Rodycaz

    Leo and Damon are deserved winners. Great freaking performances.

    • Bradly Martin

      Yeah I’ve been saying for years that Matt Damon is a way better Comedian then Steve Carrell…. are you freaking kidding me dude?

      Astronaut Witney is presumed dead, he leaves behind no wife or children. He was abandonned on Mars to die… Laugh riot of the year…

  • perreo1111

    The Martian…hahahaha….hahahaha….worst scripted movie of all time?
    That’s the only award it should be winning. Frankly, the
    sole purpose of The Martian is to perpetuate the myth that real
    astronauts are constantly grinning stupidly and cracking jokes, as
    the fake astronauts on the fake Space Station always are (the Space
    Station is in a swimming pool, and all the footage is fake – none of
    it has ever been in outer space. Hence that all astronauts are
    fitted with – wait for it – snorkels. Not because they’re in
    outer space, as NASA would have you believe, but because they’re in a
    swimming pool). That is the only reason for The Martian movie
    to exist; just as the only reason for the Peanuts movie to exist is
    to throw in two terribly clunky, utterly non sequiter-ish, utterly non-contextual, references to the hoax Apollo
    program/Moon landings. (which had craft bits and pieces named
    “Charlie Brown” and “Snoopy”). Shameful.
    Utterly shameful.

    Further more, everybody who isn’t a fudging idiot knows that the Apollo
    program/Moon landings were faked, that travelling to the Moon and
    landing on it is impossible, and hence never been done.

    To anyone who would say “You’re a fudging idiot”, then
    you are wrong. Why? It’s a matter of public record that there is
    a life size Space Station in a swimming pool, ostensibly
    for “training”. It’s also a matter of public record that the astronauts in the
    Space Station are fitted with snorkels, because one of them
    almost drowned. Where does one use a snorkel – in outer space,
    or in a swimming pool?

    Further more, everybody who isn’t a fudging idiot knows that the
    Apollo program/Moon landings were faked, that travelling to the
    Moon and landing on it is impossible, and hence never been done.
    Please refer to “One Small Step: The Great Moon Hoax and
    the Race to Dominate Earth from Space”, by Gerhard Wisnewski.
    If you read that and still believe in NASA, then I am afraid
    that the popular vernacular term “cognitive dissonance” is
    too kind. The more appropriate description is “profoundly
    stupid”. Or, alternately, “fudging idiot”.

    • Dr.Malicious, MD


      • perreo1111

        Not that it’s a laughing matter, per se – it’s deadly serious (deadly serious since NASA murdered countless astronauts and assorted whistle blowers down the years – just ask Gus Grissom’s family!) But what the hey. Lol.

        • Kiimosabi

          Forgetting to take your schizophrenia medication is a bad way to start the day.

          • Liam

            “Not taking one’s medicine is a bad way to start the day” – if one’s regimen, Kiiimosabi, calls for a morning taking of medication, then surely, as a truism, your statement is irrefutable. However, its relevance to the present moment is entirely missing.

            Do you, then, Kimosabi, make a habit of arbitrarily (i.e., randomly) postulating aphoristic truisms of that nature, completely outside of any possible reasonable context, in any given forum, for some extraordinary reason? Such behaviour is slightly suggestive of the symptons of such psychological imbalances as those popularly referred to as schizophrenia and the like, I’m afraid to say, my dear Kiimosabi! Do remember to take your medicine from now on – morning and night, mind – there’s a good chap. You know it makes sense.

    • tridus

      Thanks, I needed a good laugh from the nutbar factory.

    • Jeff Friedlander

      Wow, that would be an amazing monologue on SNL.

    • massive2341


  • Dr.Malicious, MD

    How the momentum is really going for Leonardo Dicaprio…also, I don’t see how Lady Gaga winning (don’t get me wrong, she’s awful) somehow invalidates THE ENTIRE awards ceremony. The rest of these wins were pretty accurate in my opinion…

    • Dr.Malicious, MD

      I meant to write *Wow in the beginning.

    • clone

      Leo is gaining momentum, meanwhile Depp is losing it. In the beginning, it seems to be the battle between the two. But as award season folds, seems like this one is Leo’s to lose. BAFTA nominations have just been announced and again, Leo gets a nom while Depp is snubbed.

      I also have doubts for Spotlight now. Critics early on point it out as the possible winner for best picture at the Oscars. But now??? I’m not so sure anymore.

    • Bradly Martin

      What momentum is everyone seeing? The Golden Globes are such a joke and it’s the only award he’s even won so far during award season. At this point he probably won’t even get a nomination at all for an Oscar and neither will Stalone. Depp sure as hell won’t.

  • Sa’ad Al-khatib

    yes Ennio Morricone deserves it , now give him his well deserved OSCAR!!!

    • Patient O.T.

      As a lifelong Morricone fan- I have to say that it is some of his most pedestrian, forgettable music.

  • Argos Wolf

    I don’t think The Revenant is that good. And if anyone deserves an award for that snoozefest is Tom Hardy, but hey, it would make sooo many people happy if poor Leo finally gets his Oscar. Anyway, I felt it was another pretentious movie from Inarritu. Long and underwhelming. Storywise, there’s just nothing there, the most simple story of revenge you could imagine. Funny how The Revenant isn’t touted as “from the director of Birdman”… I guess that would be bad marketing.

    • Bradly Martin

      Golden Globe winners usually don’t win Oscar’s and sometimes are not even nominated for an oscar at all. Like Jim Carry pointed out. Two Time Golden Globe winner Jim Carry.

    • Enoch Ching

      snoozefest? So you were snoozing when blood was flying everywhere and the bear was putting the smack down on Leo? Right. How is this movie pretentious? It was god-awful violent and horrifying at parts, nothing at all like Birdman except for long takes, which who would have thought, take a lot of skill.

      Please stick to Michael Bay.

  • RJ

    The Americans, Banshee, GOT, Person of Interest, Daredevil, The Last Man on Earth, The Leftovers, Blacklist, Bloodline, Broad City, Catastrophe, Fresh of the Boat, Orange is the New Black, Penny Dreadful, Ray Donavan & MANY MANY MORE —— STOP WATCHING AWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • podaddy

      Manhattan, Nathan for You, Narcos, Bloodline, Jessica Jones, Fargo, etc etc etc. Agreed, I for one get too wrapped up in who should have won or lost.

  • eli

    Miller should have won Best Director.

  • podaddy

    This is stupid. Makes sense to look at a Rotten Tomato score when comparing best movies or show, but it does NOT trickle down to actors and actresses. Just because Mr. Robot was rated higher than Bloodline does not mean Christian Slater deserved to win over Ben Mendelson, in fact, it was one of the biggest shams of the night (among many)

  • malevolentmuse

    Your newsletter email on this was stupid. Comparing the Tomatometer for films is one thing, but using it to say who “should have” won the acting awards s ridiculous. When has the quality of a movie ever had to do with the quality or award-worthiness of an individual performance? If you need a reminder that an excellent performance can be buried in a piece of crap film, go back and watch Morgan Freeman’s performance in Street Smart.

  • Greg Thrasher

    Eva Green!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mark

    Stallone’s prediction on Merv Griffin in 1976 came true! Add my name to the nutbar factory.

  • Tinwoods

    Last I checked this was the Golden Globes, not the People’s Choice Awards. The winners were the winners. Still, it’s like choosing between apples and oranges. Art is not (or should not be) a competition.

  • Peyton Middleton

    Woah! I was sure Mad Max was going to win. Also how the hell didn’t Miller win for best director? Not to hate on the Revenant, I found it to be a good movie. But not “Best Picture” worthy.

  • Jjajangmyeon Kimbap

    Lady Gaga?! WTF?! Stupid.

  • Erik N

    Ash vs Evil Dead should have been nominated an won for best comedy series, that show is fucking awesome!!!!!!!

    • Jeff Friedlander


  • Treeflower

    My favorite nominees are Game of Thrones (should’ve had it easily in the bag!), Mozart in the Jungle (YES!!), OitNB, Mad Max, Love & Mercy, all the animated films, J-Law, Cate, Leo (Yay!), Gaga, Maggie, Lily, Jane (Grace & Frankie was hilarious), Steve, Al, Alicia (don’t consider her “supporting” in Ex Machina, which was a great movie), Helen, Kate, Paul, Patrick (Sir Pat-Stew!<3), & Jeffrey. Transparent & Veep were pretty good, too. Congrats to all the winners, whether or not they were my picks…

  • Vits/Vicente Torres

    The ceremony was a lot of fun! It turns out that Ricky Gervais isn’t the only one willing to say “forbidden” things on T.V. Mel Gibson’s comebacks and Jaimie Alexander’s reaction to the prompter were very funny. Also, there were so many unpredictable winners (mainly in the TV categories).

  • PurpleandRedStar

    I didn’t catch this one but I really wanted the Peanuts Movie to win. And how did Shaun get in there? I would prefer for it to be replaced by Home, even though I didn’t like it all that much but it was certainly better than Shaun.

  • Kundilu

    CT. How sad you can only say insulting things to people who try and comment to you. What a lonely life you must have. I hope you get some help. Take good care you poor injured soul.
