Here's hoping Sean wins for MILK I'm torn between Hugh Laurie and Jon Hamm for Best Actor in a Drama Series, as well as between House and Mad Men for best Drama Series. I'm hoping January Jones takes Best Actress in a Drama, but I'm a little disappointed to see that Elisabeth Moss and Christina Hendricks weren't nominated in it as well. They were both brilliant in season 2. Those are pretty much the only categories I care about at this point

These are the people that continue to combine that category with musicals, and who nominated Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in it. Golden Globes are a joke.

Not 'til Christmas, but the critics have all seen it.

I forgot, The GG are awarded by the "foreign press" or whatever, right?

Mickey Rourke should win every award just because he's Mickey Rourke.

"Best short foreign animated documentary.... and the winner is....MICKEY ROURKE!" THAT is justice.

Heath FTW.

Also, 30 Rock for the fucking win. And Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey. And Bruce. And fuck them for not recognizing LOST.

Serious props to the HFPA for nominating Kristen Scott Thomas, who's been a little overlooked so far this season. And for Rebecca Hall, whose performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona was overshadowed by Penelope Cruz's fireworks. Strange that Woody didn't get a screenplay nom, though.

Yeah, GAF, they didn't nom Lost, but I'm just happy again for Mad Men, specifically for January Jones, who has a good chance to win. LOVE her:

I was just thinking the other day that January Jones never gets any props. I'm almost done season 1, and she is friggin excellent. Just as good as anyone on that show, and better than most.

Roger Sterling = Hero.

i'm going to try to see this over the weekend.

my uninformed speculation: KST will get an Oscar nod. she's mentioned frequently in the critics lists, and this might be the start of her role catching fire amongst the people that decide these sort of things.

looking like it will be her up against Hathaway, Streep, and one of the various Winslett roles.

all that makes me happy. stellar actresses, all. it will be interesting to see what will happen. they tend to love to give Best Actress to someone on her way up -- i.e., Paltrow -- and that bodes well for Hathaway. it really does seem like Meryl Streep might get nominated because she is Meryl Streep, but then again, she continuously loses precisely because she is Meryl Streep, and we expect this thing from her.

i adore Winslett, always have, and she's the future Greatest Living Actress (which is what Meryl is now).

i could very well see KST emerging as somewhat of a "surprise" like Marion Cotillard last year. she probably should have won for "english patient" 10 years ago.

but i need to go see me some movies.

Don't forget Sally Hawkins, Irvine. She just won both the Los Angeles and NY film critics awards for Best Actress, and is likely to win the Comedy/Musical actress award at the Globes.

I'd be very surprised if she doesn't make Oscar's final five.
