Thoughts on Golden Globe Nominations

I know I'm a freak of nature for caring about Golden Globes or ANY award show, but hear me out! The Golden Globes are the one show where the attendees can drink at the table! I'm all for a drunken celebration speech! However this year's nominations leave little to be surprised about. Of course 30 Rock is nominated. Of course Jeremy Piven is nominated. Of course movies that haven't even been released long or even at ALL are nominated -- that's for you Sherlock Holmes. I know some people are up in arms that Sons of Anarchy didn't get any love from the Hollywood Foreign Press, but I am upset that Community got no love from the HFP. I assume that this wonder 30 minutes of comedy lost a spot because of it's older and talented siblings 30 Rock and The Office. Maybe it lost a spot to the network affirmative action that keeps Entourage in the running and saved a special seat for the uniqueness of Glee or family fun of Modern Family. Now to be fair, I love all of those shows, but deep down I wouldn't mind if Community knocked Entourage down a peg. Community deserves a shot at a trophy, and if you haven't watched the show -- you are missing out on one of the funniest 30 minutes on television in 2009.

We all know Alec Baldwin, John Hamm, and Tina Fey are all front runners in their categories. (Although if the Globes take a note from the Emmy's, Fey might not take statue) Let's take a second to talk about Glee. Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison most likely won't win their Best Actor categories but Jane (muthafucking) Lynch should take Best Supporting Actress! For not singing or dancing on the show (exception of a moment in one episode), she can own a scene. So don't fuck it up, Hollywood Foreign Press. You might have nominated Meryl Strep TWICE for Best Female Actor, but show us you got the decisiveness to hook up "Coach Sue" with a statue.
