Thursday's Golden Globe nominations saw a number of first-time nominees and also some well-deserved performances shockingly getting the recognition they, well, deserve. HitFix spoke to three happy nominees who could fall into either of those buckets this morning: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oscar Isaac and Ms. Greta Gerwig.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 71st Golden Globes this morning and while they spread the love to all the major motion picture studios, as usual, there were significantly more surprises than had been expected.

HitFix's Daniel Fienberg and I took some time to chat about the nominations and whether they can really have an impact on this year's Oscar race. You can watch our conversation in the video embedded at the top of this post.

If you happened to watch "Saturday Night Live" last weekend, you might have caught the show's spoof on the recent trend of African-American themed holiday films entitled "White Christmas." The skit featured Paul Rudd as a Caucasian version of Tyler Perry's signature Madea character as well as also poking fun at the box office smash "The Best Man Holiday." Conveniently, HitFix spoke to Perry, who was promoting "A Madea Christmas," less than 12 hours after the skit aired and asked him what his reaction was.
It's probably not fair to say Tom Hanks has experienced a comeback over the past year. He's always been here. His side job as a movie and TV producer has just stolen some of his free time over the past decade or so. 2013 is a watershed for Hanks, however, with acclaimed performances in two Oscar contenders, "Captain Phillips" and "Saving Mr. Banks," now on his resume. "Phillips" has already earned over $100 million domestic, "Banks" is expected to be a major holiday hit and he could earn Academy Award nominations for both films. So on second thought, maybe it's a pseudo comeback.

What a week. We knew that the end of year honors from the nation's preeminent critics groups would send a ripple through the best picture race. We didn't know it would send a shockwave.
Adele won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for her iconic ballad "Skyfall" from last year's 007 blockbuster, but will Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" end her winning streak at the 56th Grammy Awards?
Yes, it's unlikely, isn't it? Adele is royalty. She rarely loses.
