2013 Golden Globe Awards nominations winners and losers: 'Mad Men,' Tom Hooper, 'Django Unchained'
Oh, HFPA. It's Golden Globes time again and how we've missed your questionable taste. You're the only group of approximately 80 something journalists (cough) that can collectively find a way to make almost all the studios and networks happy year after year. It's really quite remarkable and comical at the same time. This year, however, on the TV side you didn't completely play the game. You stuck by your stated rules and really ruffled some feathers with an embarrassing "Mad Men" diss and a sigh worthy decision to anoint "Smash" as something of a critical player (well, at least its not "Revenge"). On the other hand, the movie nods looked as if they were practically copied out of the contenders list every awards season pundit has published for weeks (the page views are appreciated). Except for your comedy or musical categories, of course. We can't help you there. And if you think "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" is worthy of a nomination of any kind I've got some extra DVD copies of "The Tourist" you might be interested in too.
So, loyal reader, while you ponder how Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor somehow got recognized for "Yemen" and not "Looper" and "The Impossible" respectively, why not enjoy a fine collection of Golden Globes winners and losers HitFix's own Dan Fienberg and I have whipped up embedded in this post. It has to be more entertaining than 21 minutes of an episode of "Whitney."
