The 2013 Golden Globe Nominations Have Been Announced!


Awards season is always an exciting time… but disappointments are also an inevitability. The 2013 Golden Globe nominations are here, and not everyone’s thrilled. A fellow Sarah Lawrence alum posted the nominee list on his Facebook page, noting the severe lack of cultural diversity among the nominees (thanks the gods we still got Denzel, lmao!) and a lot of other people are wishing their favorite shows had gotten some lurve. But there are still many great contenders, so click inside to read the full list of nominees!

Lincoln is leading the way (as historical biopics often do) with seven nominations. Argo and Django are also doin’ the damn thang. Honestly? I’m excited for Django, but I totally wasn’t expecting it to be a hit with the critics– apparently, it is. I’m thrilled to see Rust And Bone/Marion Cotillard getting some lurve– that was absolutely my favorite movie of the year/of my life. Also glad to see Moonrise Kingdom up in there.

As some of ya’ll know I really only watch three TV shows– Scandal, Revenge, and The Good Wife. Obvi, I wish Scandal and/or Kerry Washington would have gotten a nom,  but I also had to e-mail Trent to ask him about some of the snubbery he saw in this year’s list. LMAO. Trent went in:

No Game of Thrones in the Drama category and No Peter Dinklage in the Actor category AFTER he won last year AND gave an equally if not better performance this season
No Director nom for Tom Hooper for Les Miz … I mean, really?!
No American Horror Story: Asylum nomination even tho THIS season was so much better than last season and it got a nom last season!

Do y’all agree with Trent? Celebrate your joy or lament over the snubs! The nominees are here! Oh– and great news– Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the awards on January 13!

  • OH and no noms for ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ or its star Quvenzhane Wallis?????? THAT’S SOME BULLSHIZZ!!

    • Shannon

      Trent, yes! I peeped that too :(

      But I’m waiting on the Oscar noms for Quvenzhane– I know they often mimic the Globes, but hopefully she’ll get some love.

  • Samantha

    Kerry and Scandal…that’s some bullish*t

  • Rani

    I’m just appalled because Paranorman didn’t got a nomination and is such a great film!!!

  • Meghan

    No Game of Thrones in the Drama category and No Peter Dinklage in the Actor category AFTER he won last year AND gave an equally if not better performance this season
    No Director nom for Tom Hooper for Les Miz … I mean, really?!
    No American Horror Story: Asylum nomination even tho THIS season was so much better than last season and it got a nom last season!

    I whole heartedly agree with all of the above statements. How was Peter Dinklage not nominated!!!!!!!!!

  • Gillian

    Taylor Swift get a nom and Game of Thrones gets NOTHING? WTF!? Ugh… Its soooo wrong!

  • emily

    Totally off topic, but I just stopped short on this post — TRENT – TRENT! A Kim Kardashian perfume ad on the blog?!?! WHAT?!?!
    Sorry for my freakout here, but I thought we were blissfully KK free here. Egads! My eyes have burned.

    • @emily — I have no control over this ad, unfortunately.

    • emily

      Yeah, I figured Trent. Can’t control it all. I was just so shocked, it threw me off, LOL.

  • ClaireMichelle

    I can’t even with the Game of Thrones snubbery!!! So upset. And the only Parks and Recreation love is for Amy? She better win though! Best comedy on TV hands down.

    Also, thanks for reminding me that Amy and Tina are hosting! I totally forgot! I have to watch this because of them – snubs and all!

  • Junior

    Yea for Jodie Foster!!

  • JeniLeeSK8

    So Hayden Panetierre get a nom but not Jennifer Carpenter? Oh Golden Globes. You are no longer relevant!

    • @JeniLeeSK8 — IKNOWRIGHT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    • JeniLeeSK8

      Absolutely DISGRACEFUL. I mean WTF? She has deserved nomination before but this year she has BLOWN it out of the water and is by far giving the best performance out of anyone on the show.

  • Erica Croce

    Anyone know what the song “Suddenly” is from Les Miz? I don’t remember it and can’t place it in the musical anywhere…

  • Silly

    Athough he won’t win, Jack Black as Bernie was really good. I was impressed with his ability to hold his own (and then some!) against the talented Shirley MacLaine.

    • Silly

      I forgot to add: It was nice to see him nominated!
