Here’s The 70th Annual Golden Globe Award Nominations

Unveiled fresh from Los Angeles this morning with about as much self-importance, as, well the Golden Globes, the 70th Annual Golden Globe Award nominations are upon us, and the list appears exactly as one might have expected – save for multiple nominations for that Ewan McGregor flick Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, which I thought we’d all agreed to forget about.

As for the rest, Lincoln leads the pack with 7 nominations, proving that Spielberg is still working some sort of magic during this late stage in his career, whilst both Argo and Django Unchained are coming in with 5 nominations each. Slavery is, like, totally in this year, right?

Once again Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master has been snubbed for Best Picture, proving that this year the Hollywood Foreign Press aren’t into movies which deal with any complex or controversial issues. Except for Zero Dark Thirty. Zero Dark Thirty is okay. And, um, Django Unchained. That’s okay, too. And Lincoln. That’s… fine. Yeah. And Argo. Argo is all right. Um…

So how about that Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, huh?
