    Surprises for me:

    No Clint Eastwood for Best Actor for M$B.
    David Carradine and Uma Thurman for Kill Bill Volume 2.
    Jamie Foxx for Collateral. He got 2 other nominations (Best Actor in a Made for TV Movie - Redemption and ,of course, Best Actor in a Comedy for Ray).
    No The Incredibles score nomination.
    Meryl Streep for Manchurian Candidate.
    Renee Zellweger for Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason.
    Nicole Kidman for Birth.
    Scarlett Johannson for The Love Song for Bobby Long.

    Hopes that were dashed:
    Michael Mann and Tom Cruise for Collateral.

    I liked how Brendan Fraser actually wanted to be there. Mira looked lovely, but tired, and Drea looked like she didn't want to be there at all. I know it was 5:30 a.m., but still.

    Well, considering he hasn't had much going for him since The Quiet American, I'm sure he was glad to get some exposure. [​IMG]

    Ew, the song from Polar Express. Ew.

    Looks like there's no hope for my dark horse awards choice, Bryce Dallas Howard in The Village. Too bad, since she MADE that movie.

    No comment on The Village.

    What in the world is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" doing in the Comedy/Musical category?

    Not sure how Eternal Sunshine counts as a comedy, aside from the blurb on the DVD cover ("a sexy, romantic comedy!" or something like that). Then again, I don't know how exactly I'd classify it. Is Sideways any more of a comedy than Eternal Sunshine?

    The biggest surprise for me - well, not really a surprise, I suppose, but I'm trying not to be cynical...no nod for Jim Caviezel for what I feel is far and away the performance of the year.

    Don't really understand the love for Renee Zellweger. Her performance in "BJ Edge of Reason" was nothing special in a mediocre film.

    Looking forward to more of those films coming to town.

    I was really surprised at this too. I thought Maia Morgenstern who played Mary, the mother of Jesus, might be nominated as well for her performance.

    As I look over those nominations, I'm guessing the Globes doesn't give an award for cinematogrophy.

    Hannity & Colms had a guy on last night that was making the case as to why "The Passion" received no nominations. He said something like 60% of film critics panned "The Passion." If true, that is surprising. I guess I only paid attention to what Ebert and Roeper had to say about it in giving it two thumbs up.

    Peace,

    Wasn't The Passion of the Christ ineligible for Best Picture. The HFP said something about it being a foreign language film. If that's the case, was it also ineligible for other nominations (acting, directing)? If so, that may explain the perceived snubs.

    As to 60% of the critics panning The Passion of the Christ...I don't remember many negative reviews. In fact, most of the reviews I read were in the above average to good range.

    @ rottentomatoes

    239 reviews

    overall 51%
    cream of the crop 37%

    and most of the rotten reviews were extremely hostile.

    The Passion is at 51% overall on RT, and 37% for the cream of the crop critics. The averages are 6/10 and 5/10 respectively. That's not to say that it's a bad film, but RT is a relatively effective measurement for overall critical acceptance. I thought it was a very beautiful looking film (definitely has my vote for the cinematography AA), but I wouldn't rank it among the top ten films of the year. I'm not panning it, I just thought it was conceptually too simple to compete with some of the other films out there.

    That being said, I also thought Caviezel deserved a nod. Aside from the authentic look/feel of the film, his performance was the strongest aspect.

    Maybe so, but it did not get any nominations.

    I don't know how Natalie Portman got over looked for her role in Garden State. I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing Closer, but I can't see how there were 5 better musical/comedy performances than Portman's in Garden State.

    Hmmm, Stauntan for Best Actress seems possible to me.

    Actor is a heckava race at this point. I like Leo, but Depp and Cheadle have a lot of push behind them right now. Depp for the level of his film and his part in that, and Cheadle for the international importance of his film (the story I mean).

    Foxx is strong, but Sideways has so much momentum. I'll stick with Foxx I guess.

    I could see Payne beating Scorsese here more than the Oscars.

    I think Aviator gets Score.

    Otherwise I guess I agree with Tino.

    For TV the only shows I'm really pulling for are Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    I've seen all the movies nominated except for Beyond the Sea (which I'll be seeing on Tuesday), Love Song for Bobby Long (hasn't opened yet), Bridget Jones (blew it off) and The Chorus (I don't believe it's opened yet. If it did, I missed it), and I agree with Timo on all his predictions, though I too wouldn't be surprised at Staunton winning.

    I don't really care who wins. I don't mean that in a dismissive way though. With the exception of actively pulling for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I'm not really as emotionally invested in Awards season this year, not like I've been the last 3 years. I think all the movies are good so I'd be pretty happy with just about any win (well, maybe not Zellweger, but then, I haven't seen the performance). I'd be thrilled with anything Eternal Sunshine might get but beyond that, it's all good.

    The Globes almost always "get it right" or close to, both in nominations and wins (it would have been nice if they'd recognized Nicole's performance in Dogville, but I can't complain too much). It'll be a good show.

    Wow, I just checked the TV nominations, and haven't seen an episode of anything nominated! Not one thing. Damn. I'm sure they're all really good too. Part of that is because I don't get HBO. The other part is that I only watch networks for specials like the Olympics or the Academy Awards. Fans of the nominated series should be glad. I'm the kiss of death for a show. I quit watching series television years ago when I realized that as soon as I got interested in something, it would get cancelled. If I don't watch something, it has a long, happy life. (Cupid and Due South were my last forays into network television and I loved them both. They'd still be on now if I hadn't started watching them!)

    I have no idea how the Foreign Press will vote, so whoever wins will get a mild curious, "oh, really" raised eyebrow from me. I'll be watching normal programming on TV (Arrested Development, Desperate Housewives, Boston Legal), maybe put the GGs in a small picture-in-picture.

    Totally agree with Ernest here.

    I am hoping that Finding Neverland gets Best Drama & Director, and a Best Actor for Depp. He was brilliant here.

    For the ones that got noms, Best Score should go to Neverland as well. I also feel that The Village score should have been nominated too. Total snub here as was the snub for John Debney's score for The Passion Of The Christ. Both of those scores were genius and were quite possibly the most effective scores with what took place on screen. Isn't that what it's supposed to do????
