2014 Golden Globe Nominations Announced


This morning, Aziz Ansari, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde announced the nominees for the 71st annual Golden Globes. The ceremony, hosted by Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler, will take place on January 12th, 2014.

Of course, the list reads mostly as one would expect, but there are a few things worth mentioning. For one, it’s great to see Captain Phillips‘ Barkhad Abdi getting so much recognition. First he received a SAG nomination and now a Golden Globe nod. Could be on pace for an Oscar as well?

Speaking of Captain Phillips, which is one of my favorite films of the year, Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass also scored nominations, as did the film itself for Best Motion Picture – Drama.

A couple other interesting things to note are Rush earning a big nomination for Best Motion Picture – Drama, something that I did not expect, and The Wolf of Wall Street finally getting some awards love. The film found itself with a nod for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical as well as a nomination for Leo, which could mean that this might be his year for Oscar gold. Or at least, he has a chance now. He likely won’t win, as the category has some incredibly tough competition, but it’s still nice to see him getting recognized for the role and I hope that he’ll at least receive a nomination come Oscar night.

As for the TV side of things, Showtime’s Masters of Sex was surprisingly low on nominations, only snagging two. The fact that Lizzy Caplan was looked over is a true crime and I’m shocked that the voters didn’t give her a nod.

On a more positive note, I’m thrilled to see Jason Batemen receiving a nomination for his work in Arrested Development. I think he’s one of Hollywood’s most under-appreciated actors, or at least he was for some time, and the way it’s looking now, he could potentially take home the Golden Globe next month.

Anyways, enough from me, check out the full list of nominees below and let us know what you think.
