MISSING: "Arrested Development" & "The 40 Year-old Virgin"

Golden Globe nominations

I don’t know why I bother caring about awards. You can’t possibly fairly “judge” art. Anyway, here’s the biggies (movie-wise):

Best motion picture – Drama

Brokeback Mountain

The Constant Gardener

A History of Violence

Match Point

Good Night, and Good Luck

Best performance by an actress in a motion picture – Drama

Maria Bello – A History of Violence

Felicity Huffman – Transamerica

Gwyneth Paltrow – Proof

Charlize Theron – North Country

Ziyi Zhang – Memoirs of a Geisha

Best performance by an actor in a motion picture – Drama

Russell Crowe – Cinderella Man

Philip Seymour Hoffman – Capote

Terrence Howard – Hustle and Flow

Heath Ledger – Brokeback Mountain

David Strathairn – Good Night and Good Luck

Best motion picture – Musical Or Comedy

Mrs Henderson Presents

Pride & Prejudice

The Producers

The Squid and the Whale

Walk the Line

The real question here is what film will Walk the Line knock out of the drama list here for the Oscar nominations? Or maybe King Kong will make a bigger impact at the Oscars. heh.

I can’t believe all this fuss about “Good Night and Good Luck.” If I have to go with a biopic, “Capote” is my favorite. Or the best, IMO. But Hollywood likes to talk about itself, and “Good Night” is pretty close to being about the industry…so maybe that explains it.

The TV nominations are boring as hell. Four out of five best female nominations are to desperate housewives. Plus Felicity Huffman is also nominated for playing a man who wants to be a woman in “Transamerica.” I think that’s pretty cool. My mom likes her (but not “Desperate Housewives”) because she’s married to William H. Macy, who I believe she only knows from “Fargo.” I’ve taught her well.

    Well, I’m glad to see that at least Steve Carell and Jason Lee were nominated, but the whole awards thing is a big fat high school popularity contest.
    And Larry David, as usual, is the Prom Queen.
