Here are the Golden Globe nominations of 2009.

The Nom Nom Nominees is....


Best Motion Picture – Drama
Nominees:

Avatar (2009)

The Hurt Locker (2008)

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009)

Up in the Air (2009/I)

Thoughts:
Though I have yet to see most of these, I think this has to go to Inglorious Basterds. Precious will probably get it though – because Oprah said so.

Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Nominees:

(500) Days of Summer (2009)

The Hangover (2009)

It’s Complicated (2009)

Julie & Julia (2009)

Nine (2009)

Thoughts:
Nine! How can you top Penelope Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis et al, doing a song and dance. It’s not out yet, but I’m gonna guess this movie should have been called TEN. Zing!

*UPDATE
I saw Nine and it’s not that good. I mean the acting is good and the spectacle and cinematography might make it worth seeing but the story isn’t that great. I change my vote to 500 Days of Summer.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Nominees:

Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart (2009)

George Clooney for Up in the Air (2009/I)

Colin Firth for A Single Man (2009)

Morgan Freeman for Invictus (2009)

Tobey Maguire for Brothers (2009/I)

Thoughts:
Clooney. But I wouldn’t be upset if Morgan Freeman or Jeff Bridges took it either, cause they awesome.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Nominees:

Emily Blunt for The Young Victoria (2009)

Sandra Bullock for The Blind Side (2009)

Helen Mirren for The Last Station (2009)

Carey Mulligan for An Education (2009)

Gabourey ‘Gabby’ Sidibe for Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009)

Thoughts:
Emily Blunt. She has range, these other ladies are good but typecast a lot.


Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Nominees:

Matt Damon for The Informant! (2009)

Daniel Day-Lewis for Nine (2009)

Robert Downey Jr. for Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt for (500) Days of Summer (2009)

Michael Stuhlbarg for A Serious Man (2009)

Thoughts:
Torture. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is my future husband but how can you top RDJ or Day-Lewis. And Serious Man was so good. I can’t answer this one or my head is going to explode into those fireworks that come up when you beat Mario Kart.

*UPDATE
Robert Downy Jr. I finally saw Sherlock Holmes and… Yep.


Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Nominees:

Sandra Bullock for The Proposal (2009/I)

Marion Cotillard for Nine (2009)

Julia Roberts for Duplicity (2009)

Meryl Streep for It’s Complicated (2009)

Meryl Streep for Julie & Julia (2009)

Thoughts:
Did someone nominate The Proposal as a joke? It was cute, but awards level? It wasn’t even that funny. I think we all know the only reason anyone went was for Ryan Reynolds sans the shirt. Definitely Marion Cotillard. Meryl Streep would be a close second.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Nominees:

Matt Damon for Invictus (2009)

Woody Harrelson for The Messenger (2009/I)

Christopher Plummer for The Last Station (2009)

Stanley Tucci for The Lovely Bones (2009)

Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Thoughts:

Even though Inglourious Basterds was the best movie evar, I have to say Woody or Stanley Tucci for this because they are both amazing.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Nominees:

Penélope Cruz for Nine (2009)

Vera Farmiga for Up in the Air (2009/I)

Anna Kendrick for Up in the Air (2009/I)

Mo’Nique for Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009)

Julianne Moore for A Single Man (2009)

Thoughts:
It’s hard to judge this one because I haven’t seen most of these. May have to come back and edit once I have. For now let’s say Vera Farminga or Penelope cause both of their flicks will kick the ass.

*UPDATE
Anna Kendrick. She’s new and she holds her own against Clooney, totally a step up from Twilight.

Best Director – Motion Picture
Nominees:

Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (2008)

James Cameron for Avatar (2009)

Clint Eastwood for Invictus (2009)

Jason Reitman for Up in the Air (2009/I)

Quentin Tarantino for Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Thoughts:

The Hurt Locker (2008): Mark Boal

Inglourious Basterds (2009): Quentin Tarantino

It’s Complicated (2009): Nancy Meyers

Up in the Air (2009/I): Jason Reitman, Sheldon Turner

Thoughts:
I really liked the storyline beneath District 9. Just not quite as much as Basterds.

Best Original Song – Motion Picture
Nominees:

Avatar (2009): James Horner, Simon Franglen, Kuk Harrell(“I Will See You”)

Brothers (2009/I): U2, Bono(“Winter”)

Crazy Heart (2009): T-Bone Burnett, Ryan Bingham(“The Weary Kind”)

Everybody’s Fine (2009): Paul McCartney(“(I Want To) Come Home”)

Nine (2009): Maury Yeston(“Cinema Italiano”)

Thoughts:
Bono’s song from Brothers will probably win because he and Oprah control the Earth, but I vote Nine.

Nominees:

Avatar (2009): James Horner

The Informant! (2009): Marvin Hamlisch

A Single Man (2009): Abel Korzeniowski

Up (2009): Michael Giacchino

I say Up, cause it’s just so frickin’ cute.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

Coraline (2009)

Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)

The Princess and the Frog (2009)

Up (2009)

Thoughts:
Either Up or Fantastic Mr. Fox. I haven’t seen Mr. Fox yet, but I’m confident I will thoroughly enjoy it.

*UPDATE
I was SO right.

Los abrazos rotos (2009)

Baarìa (2009)

Das weisse Band – Eine deutsche Kindergeschichte (2009)

“Big Love” (2006)

“Dexter” (2006)

Nominees:

“Entourage” (2004)

“Glee” (2009)

“The Office” (2005)

“Modern Family” (2009)

“30 Rock” (2006)

Thoughts:

For everyone who says they don’t like shows that feature elaborate musical numbers, put that aside and realize that Glee is one of the best written shows on TV right now. This or Office will win. I still love 30 Rock too.

Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Nominees:

Georgia O’Keeffe (2009) (TV)

Grey Gardens (2009) (TV)

Into the Storm (2009) (TV)

Thoughts:

Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy
Nominees:

Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock” (2006)

Steve Carell for “The Office” (2005)

David Duchovny for “Californication” (2007)

Thomas Jane for “Hung” (2009)

Matthew Morrison for “Glee” (2009)

Thoughts:

I don’t like this game anymore. This is too hard, Matthew Morrison, who I’m assuming plays Mr. Shu on Glee is so so awesome. But now I see Californication up there. Alec Baldwin is just…. an epic win, in general. But how can I not say Steve Carrell. Goddamit, Okay I’m going with Duchovny because honestly, he has moved on past Agent Mulder in ways I never thought he could. Californication is an amazing show and he totally pulls it off.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy
Nominees:

Toni Collette for “United States of Tara” (2009)

Courteney Cox for “Cougar Town” (2009)

Edie Falco for “Nurse Jackie” (2009)

Tina Fey for “30 Rock” (2006)

Lea Michele for “Glee” (2009)

Thoughts:

Cougar Town for reals? That show has it’s funny moments, but Courtney Cox’s overacting is one of the show’s flaws. I say TINA


Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama
Nominees:

Simon Baker for “The Mentalist” (2008)

Michael C. Hall for “Dexter” (2006)

Jon Hamm for “Mad Men” (2007)

Hugh Laurie for “House M.D.” (2004)

Bill Paxton for “Big Love” (2006)

Thoughts:

Don. Draper.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama
Nominees:

Glenn Close for “Damages” (2007)

January Jones for “Mad Men” (2007)

Julianna Margulies for “The Good Wife” (2009)

Betty. Draper.

i want shiny award


Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Neil Patrick Harris for “How I Met Your Mother” (2005)

William Hurt for “Damages” (2007)

John Lithgow for “Dexter” (2006)

Jeremy Piven for “Entourage” (2004)

Thoughts:

Choosing between Jeremy Piven and NPH is too torturous this early in the week. So I say both/either/threesome.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Nominees:

Jane Adams for “Hung” (2009)

Rose Byrne for “Damages” (2007)

Jane Lynch for “Glee” (2009)

Janet McTeer for Into the Storm (2009) (TV)

Chloë Sevigny for “Big Love” (2006)

Thoughts:
Jane Lynch deserves this and every/any other award. She is amazing.

And now we wait!

The Hills/City Finale Wrap-up

December 2, 2009 at 7:29 pm (MTV, Rage) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I’ll begin with the short version. It was disappointing. Both The Hills and The City were not unlike any other regular episodes. Neither of them felt like a finale of any kind. I am not pleased, because I spent a good chunk of time debating on which one I would lend my attention to, Hills/City, or the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show which was airing at the same time. I chose Hills, because I thought it would be entertaining, and would also leave me much less guilty about the bag of candy in my lap.
For those of you missed it, here’s the rundown. For those who still plan on watching it, look away now. Unless of course, you don’t give a shit or can predict what happened anyway, even though it was nothing. NOTHING HAPPENED!

The Hills

Okay. So first, Spencer and Brody are playing basketball while Spencer bitches about his evil, scheming wife. First of all, when did they even become friends again? Second, sure Spencer has right to complain about his wife trying to trick him into fatherhood, but how many shady things has he done before? He painted her apartment with graffiti, surprised her with a pinball machine (she didn’t like the pinball so it was probably more for him), picked out their house before she could get a say, and made her shut her mother out of her life. He’s pretty much the devil. I hope they don’t have that child. I think she will become pregnant in 2012 and that’s how the world will end.
Hmm then what happened… Heidi got some extensions, Audrina met with Justin Bobby and complained a lot. Neither myself, nor Justin know or care what she was talking about.

Then Kristin was all, bitching about leaving her sweet summer Barbie beach home, with Stacie the bartender who was apparently a squatter there. Who shows up to her house but Justin Bobby!

He was all like, “you do special things to me, be my girlfriend.”, and Kristin said “Okai fine.”
THENN.. Jade and Brody were at an engagement party, and Jade’s friend planted seeds in her brain that stemmed into thoughts of engagement and babies with Brody. Jade got whatever Heidi has and asked him about vomiting committing, but Brody was not having it. He was like, “Bitch, whatchu talkin’ about we just got back together an hour ago!”. On a side note, does anyone remember when he dated Nicole Richie?

That’s strange. Brody also told some of his friends that he might still want to do Kristin.
Moving on, I forget. But trust me it was nothing explosive. Lots of lead-ins with no results. The whole episode felt like when you’re about to sneeze but then you just, don’t.


The City was marginally better than The Hills. Here’s what happened. Whitney designed her own clothes and Kelly Cutrone, who I both love and fear intensely, said she was Whitney’s bitch and will help her get a meeting with supermegaimportant Bergdorf Goodman. Kelly was like, “Don’t bring your bogan friend Roxy who screws everything up”

Bogan


Whitney went against the wise Ms. Cutrone’s advice and brought Roxy anyways. She wasn’t soo bad, but any good behavior is canceled out thanks to her epic fails at the photoshoot last week. Including spilling champagne on one of Whitney’s dresses. It was technically the model that spilt it, but Roxy made her hold and pop the bottle open, and models are trained to take direction. Bergdorf Goodman basically reamed Whitney out and said she used weird material and her dresses make girls look fat.
Over at Elle Magazine, Erin was a huge bitch.

I look innocent but I'm loca


She went back and re-did Olivia’s work, then when Joe asked Olivia about the new work, she didn’t know shit. Meaning Joe also didn’t know shit. And went on air… Not knowing shit. Which means when he was talking on the Today Show he was basically making shit up, and (as my Grandma would say) flying by the seat of his pants. So Remember that… Anytime you watch a talk show, people talking on it may be bullshitting.
They all went to the principal’s office (Joe Zee’s office) for a little sit down and both Erin and Olivia turned 15. They bitched and swore and Erin was all, “choose me or her cause I don’t wanna work with her and she’s not invited to my birthday party.”

Joe had to remind them this wasn’t high school, and then Erin ran out of the room. Olivia said some bullshit I forget. And I think that was the end.

pure hatred


Pretty sure that was the only stuff that happened. But there’s more nothingness to enjoy because Whitney says the City has another season!! How? Why? I don’t know. Will I watch it? Yes.
