2017 Golden Globe Nominations Revealed

The Golden Globe nominations have been announced today and all I can say is, Wow! I am so disappointed with these results. I mean, they do nominate some good stuff. I liked seeing Colin Farrell there for The Lobster and Moonlight doing well.

But plenty of the snubs today were absolutely hideous: No Lucas Hedges for Supporting Actor, The Handmaiden for Foreign Language Film, or, and this one actually had my jaw drop, Sally Field for Best Actress-Musical Or Comedy. Seriously, Lily Collins for Rules Don't Apply, one of the biggest flops of the year, over Sally Field who single handedly carried arthouse hit Hello, My Name Is Doris? Really?

Anyhow, some other shockers include Silence and Sully being a no-show despite them having significant star power behind them, Nocturnal Animals performing better than expected as well as both Hacksaw Ridge and Hell Or High Water. If there's anything we learned, it's that Hacksaw Ridge and Hell Or High Water are now legitimate Best Picture contenders. Also, La La Land has the most nominations with 7 while Manchester By The Sea and Moonlight performed well.
