We are now in full awards season, and immediately after the nominations for SAG Awards Here's arrived for the Golden Globes, It will be delivered the 11 January 2015. Despite the expectations weren't very high, at least as far as television categories, those this year are still managed to rank among the worst nominations of history; Although it is now customary that juries devote little attention to the extremely popular and critically acclaimed reality series (The Walking Dead on all) in favor of other, This year there are also several nominees who have very few justifications. But we come to the point: These were our reactions.
The more snubbed:
Peter Dinklage / Emilia Clarke / Lena Headey: not even a Game of Thrones actor named, It seems normal? What about Tyrion's trial scene? What else needs to do poor Dinklage because he is a little’ of merit?
The Walking Dead / The Americans: nothing unexpected, But if The Affair you deserved a best drama nomination in his first season is even more irritating that these series have never no recognition.
Michael Sheen / Lizzy Caplan / Masters of Sex: no nothing, Lizzy Caplan Emmy was just a faint glimmer of hope soon shattered.
Mad Men: much loved for so many years (even when he wouldn't have deserved) and entirely ignored at the season finale? Evidently the treatment Breaking Bad is not reserved in all, even Don Draper.
Homeland: awarded to capacity for the first two seasons and now that we are faced with what many define as his best season ends in oblivion. You save in corner with a nomination to Claire Danes, but it is not sufficient, really there was no room in a category where they are candidates The Good Wife and The Affair?
Modern Family / Julie Bowen / Ty Burrell / Eric Stonestreet: the absolute absence of Modern Family and its representatives is undoubtedly the most senseless of these nominations; Emmy won everything and here are not even taken into account? Were not without its criticism at that last victory (of which we were very happy), but go from there nowhere seems a little exaggerated. Especially if they continue to appoint Girls, that after the enthusiasm for the first season we haven't seen on stage.
The Big Bang Theory / Jim Parsons / Emma Bialik: the same observations made for Modern Family apply in this case, especially considering that The Big Bang Theory is his only worthy rival and the comedy with the ratings far higher than any other; How can you pretend it doesn't exist?
Amy Poehler: as for the cast of Game of Thrones, for Amy be ignored is almost the norm; the victory last year has clearly altered the underlying orientation of the Golden Globes, Although it is always one of the most popular actresses in comedy.
Julia Roberts: his co-star Mark Ruffalo was nominated for anything, practically also for films in which does not appear, While she is suddenly ignored for one of the best performances of the entire cast of The Normal Heart.
Sherlock: between Emmy and SAG has swept nominations and awards and the Golden Globes his starring Benedict Cumberbatch appears only in the category cinema with The Imitation Game.
The most unexpected:
James Spader (The Blacklist): are we sure that this place could not just go to Jon Hamm? It was so necessary to have Spader?
Jane The Virgin / Silicon Valley / Transparent: the nomination of Jane The Virgin It has the flavor of the enthusiasm for the first season of New Girl or The Mindy Project, which as we know has gone rapidly declining (at least by the boards of the awards); absolutely unjustifiable, instead, Silicon Valley and Transparent in place of Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory: decisions without any logic.
Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent): not that you don't deserve, but they ignored for years and now we have to see him on the red carpet instead of Ty Burrell?
The Affair / Ruth Wilson / Dominic West: seriously? Now with all due respect, but the pair of lovers really deserves all these nominations? At this point could also appoint The Leftovers and Justin Theroux!
Tv Movie and miniseries: the section with fewer surprises (both positive and negative) with the nominations always deserve to Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates (American Horror Story: Freak Show) and acclaimed Fargo, The Normal Heart and True Detective. About the latter, going to take home at least one prominent statuette after the meager results of Emmy?
Cinema: the tendency to appoint those who faced a physical change continues unabated with nominations to Jennifer Aniston (Cake), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) and last but not least, Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) – sister Maggie is nominated for Best Actress in a Mini series or Tv Movie for The Honorable Woman. Cannot be the absence of the pair that dominated the scene in the last two years, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, But if you have no valid film releases at this time, He was given as papabile Academy Award for interpretation in American Sniper. We hope at least Jake, unrecognizable in Nightcrawler with a weight loss that, in his own words, He had worried even his mother. Confirmed Rosamunde Pike (Gone Girl), Reese Witherspoon (Wild) and the winner of the 2014 Amy Adams (Big Eyes), While we could not miss Nuestra Señora del Cinema Meryl Streep (Into the Woods).
