Golden Globes, Jan. 17 (2009)

  • Self thinks it is a crime that “Fantastic Mr. Fox” was not nominated in any of the major categories.
  • Self thinks the nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama are especially strong.
  • Colin Firth is nominated (It’s about time!) as Best Actor in a Drama. For “A Single Man.”
  • Self is pleasantly surprised that “(500) Days of Summer” is nominated for Best Musical or Comedy.
  • Meryl Streep appears twice in the same category: Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical or Comedy (for “Julie & Julia” and “It’s Complicated”)
  • Matt Damon is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical or Comedy — for “The Informant.” In the same category: Joseph Gordon-Levitt (for “500 Days of Summer”). What? Hey, olé!
  • Matt Damon is nominated again — as Best Supporting Actor (for “Invictus”). In the same category, self’s personal favorite: Christoph Waltz, of course for “Inglourious Basterds.”
  • Simon Baker is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Drama (of course for “The Mentalist”)
  • Thomas Jane is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Musical or Comedy (for “Hung,” which self would love to see, only she doesn’t have HBO, boo)

Where oh where are Zach Quinto or Jeremy Renner???  For that matter, where is Ben Foster?

And this is all for now.
