  1. Nikita says:

    When Winner Will be Updated ?

  2. Black-ish should have gotten a nod for Best Comedy TV series.

  3. Milo says:

    Where is “Star Wars: The Force Awakes” for Best Picture?

  4. A 3 minute performance by Jane Fonda in Youth gets her a best supporting actress nomination? Rachel Weisz shined in that movie and Jane gets the nod? weird.

  5. NO tatiana maslany…..????!!! REALLY????? Jamie Lee Curtis gets a nomination but not Tatiana Maslany…….WHAT THE F!?? LAME

    • Mike says:

      Yeah, I cannot believe Tatiana Maslany did not get nominated. She plays multiple characters so well that you forget that it’s the same actress playing Sarah, Cosima, Helena, Rachel…

  6. chris says:

    How was Caitriana Balfe from Outlander nominated? She is awful and practically single handedly ruins Outlander if it weren’t for the actors who are out of her league holding up the show. Glad to see Tobias Menzies was nominated but no Sam Hughen whhhaaatttt??

  7. KittyMack says:

    I can’t believe that commenters are miffed because The Walking Dead wasn’t nominated. Are you kidding? This is about excellence in film and television, not some cult show following. The only stand-out about this show is the excellent acting which is especially extraordinary given the obvious, bore-your-socks off scripts. I was pleased to see Fargo get a nom, along with best acting slots. Brilliant writing, directing and an ensemble cast that raised the bar, yet again.

  8. Chris says:

    No Straight Outta Compton nods? I thought that was a surprise hit of the year. Great acting across the boards.

  9. SLB says:

    What about The Leftovers? Best drama I’ve seen in years. Socks you in the gut every episode.

  10. Nevada Jones says:

    Are you kidding? Amy Schumer and Train Wreck???? Where are your standards Foreign Press?

  11. It’s gonna be interesting….sooo much talent…but then again..there always is…

  12. Havent heard of 4 out of 5 movies in each category. Guess they are either stinkers…or I am out of the loop. I will give them each a shot based on the nomintation…..hey, maybe that is how you get nominated? You pay enough so that having your project nominated encourages viewing? Just a thought. Also, saw and read The Martian. While parts are “comical”…its not a comedy.

  13. I’m glad Mad Max : Fury Road and Mr. Robot got recognitions they deserve. They’d better get the awards.

    Empire is not an award material. It is hugely popular, but it is just another soap opera with ridiculous intrigues and plot.

  14. Jacques Strappe says:

    The Martian is a comedy? Who knew. Jeffrey Tambor is awesome in Transparent but to nominate the series for a best comedy award is a travesty. The writing is marginal and the supporting cast of characters mostly makes Transparent unpleasant to watch. Blackish should have been nominated. Empire might be wildly popular but it is not award winning television. That’s my two cents.

  15. How did “Joy” get nominated for Best Picture? I’ve been hearing mediocre at best from people. It holds like mid-50% on Rotten Tomatoes and literally every critic is unanimously saying “It’s a frikkin’ mess of a film”. Dead again this is the director who ironically conned people with “American Hustle” and it just hit me this is the Golden Globes…the freakish middle child/black sheep of the award season so who cares? LOL The weird, stupid bridge between the Oscars and the Emmy’s. They put “The Martian” as a comedy! Just because it has humor and isn’t deadpan depressing like the other drama contenders doesn’t mean it’s not frikkin’ serious! It’s about a guy facing starvation and death on Mars! I do agree with many the actor who plays Jamie on “Outlander” deserved some love! The final three episodes of him were some of the most intense I’d seen in awhile on a TV show (Imagine being tortured, raped by a man when you’re straight, and hallucinating your wife, brainwashed to the point you actually feel affection for your torturer). Lady Gaga is a joke! But this is the new film industry. It’s not based in reality or even talent. It’s…if they are likable or get ratings give it to them for the heck of it! But thank God! Sylvester Stallone gets his first Golden Globe nomination in 39 years! Go get ’em Sly! Go for the Oscar! I think he could legitimately take it if the Academy isn’t too bribed by someone else! He is genuinely the best in my opinion! I’d love DiCaprio and Stallone, too mistreated men in Hollywood in their own separate ways, to win at the Oscars! And for women I think Brie Larson for lead, but it’s a toss-up between Vikander, Winslet, and Leigh for supporting, assuming those three go to the Oscars as well. For all that’s good and holy though Academy…stop treating Lawrence like Meryl Streep. She’s not Meryl Streep. You were ready to hand her a nomination from the get-go no matter what happened and it’s frikkin’ obvious at this point you boys over there are playing favorites. I will say…Mad Max…didn’t think that would happen. Now that it’s a possibility…love to see that get Best Picture! Easily one of the greatest action movies ever and so much subtext! :)

    • I completely agree with all you said. Jennifer Lawrence ain’t no Merryl Streep and now she’s overrated. She just play herself in movies lately, not showing a wide range emotion and interpretation like Merryl Streep does.

      And indeed, Mad Max : Fury Road deserves to be nominated as a Best Pictures. It has all elements an excellent movie needs: a crowd-gatherer and entertaining story-telling with a subtext messages and Excellency in directing. George Miller should get Best Director Awards.


      • If you agreed please check out the article on my little news site.

      • Well thank you. Nice to see some people don’t follow the Lawrence craze blindly. BEcause really she is playing herself. Her actions the last couple months show she is the crazy know-it-all from Silver Linings Playbook or American Hustle or Joy or even katniss. This victim who acts like an emotionally erratic bitch but because her hair color is different she’s “versatile”. And it’s frustrating creating a detailed argument only to be called a “hater” for it. Like really? I’m a hater because I don’t follow a craze and I have a reason. Whatever.

        Also yes! Let’s do it! Here are my choices. Mad Max for Best Picture and Director. DiCaprio, Larson, Stallone, and Mara for acting. Screenplay is up in the air but I think Fury Road could get Adapted (As it technically is based in it’s previous films).

  16. Sissie says:

    so the SCOT did not get nominated for the story about Scotland that sucks-not to mention SAM makes the show

  17. Once again, most Network TV and The Walking Dead are totally disrespected. I don’t know who the actual voters are, but maybe they’d like to put their names out there so we the viewers who think that their opinions are crap can totally disrespect them right back. Turnabout is Fair Play.

  18. Jenn says:

    I think they are good but snubbing The Walking Dead every year is getting old. If you actually watch it, there is great character acting in it. That is what it is about, not zombies. They bring a person through all emotions that a person can feel. It also has broken all viewing records, and surpasses it every year it has been on.

  19. How is it possible that Sam Heughan wasn’t nominated for Outlander? He’s the reason for the season, Y’all.

  20. Lolly says:

    What about Jake Gyllenhaal for Southpaw?! Or even Southpaw getting anything???!!! It really is one of the best films this year! And The best TV comedy by a mile is Catastrophe. Some of these noms just don’t make sense….

    • JL says:

      Nothing for Forest Whitaker either. Such travesties that were made. That supporting role was especially amazing and one of the bright spots of the movie.

  21. jlyn says:

    Either the GG is playing a cruel joke on all of us, or Gaga paid somebody off for the nomination. It’s absolutely disgusting that Lady Gag-me-with-her-awful-acting got the nod, but nothing for the REAL actors on the show (Kathy, Denis, Sarah, Angela, Even, etc).

  22. oneorganizedbusiness says:

    And The Americans snubbed again?

  23. oneorganizedbusiness says:

    I’m glad Fargo got some nods.
    Last season of Mad Men got not love…??
    And The Leftovers shut out? Really? I hope HBO wasn’t waiting on this to make a decision about renewal. I need a third season!

    Lame week where nominations are concerned.

  24. Silvia says:

    Sam Heughan didn’t get a nomination? Unbelievable! I can’t think to Outlander without Sam, he gave us joy, pain, tenderness, passion, frustration, braveness & more. A great test of acting not recognized…this is wrong!

  25. Charnique says:

    Great choices but I think you made mistakeaswith some of the shows and actors/actresses. Can you tell me why James Spader isn’t here or why the hell The Blacklist isn’t there either!?! Seriously disappointing.

  26. I’m really happy for Outlander landing three nominations. The show is fantastic (Best.TV.Ever), Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies delivered outstanding performances. But can ANYONE explain to me why on earth Sam Heughan did NOT get a nomination? One of the best actors that ever graced the silver screen? Seriously, it will take me a long time to get over this.

    • Pat says:

      no, Caitriona Balfe did not deserve a nomination. I have seen middle school plays where the actresses give more demension and thought to their performance. She should have stuck to modeling underwear.
      The are spot on with the Tobias Menzies nomination
      How Cait Barf was nominated and Sam was not is completely insane!! Again, a non for gawd awful Cait but not Sam is ridiculous!

  27. Mamita says:

    Congrats to Outlander, Caitriona and Tobias. Will not be able to get over the Sam Heughan snub for quite awhile, though. Unbelievable. If it weren’t for HIM, what’s the point? Awesome actor. Episodes 9, 15 and 16 were epic because of him.

  28. Liz Czepiel says:

    @SamHeughan not get nominated? Say goodbye to audience!

  29. Kem says:

    “The Americans” got snubbed again.

  30. Shirley Molldrem says:

    Congratulations to the “Outlander” winners, however, I’m greatly stunned that Sam Hauegan did not receive a nomination for best actor in Outlander. The Outlander series has been beyond unbelievable. The writing, producing,acting and everything involved in making this tv series should be lifted up!

  31. genehoke says:

    Lady Gaga? And no Sarah Paulson? Is this a joke? And no love for the excellent second season of The Leftovers?

  32. Maria V says:

    No Sarah Paulson for Carol OR American Horror Story?
    What’s wrong with the Hollywood Foreign Press???
