Golden Globes 2012 Nominations are Out!


I barely have time to comment, so I will just give you the list, but ok, I can say a few words. In a nutshell:  are they CRAZY? Bridesmaids sucks! I am not convinced by Moneyball either, and Midnight in Paris?! Gimme a break, please. Misses Williams is not very convincing for me in her Marilyn version, Ryan Gosling in Stupid, Crazy, Love is good indeed, the same goes for Brendan Gleeson; Tilda is always cool, The Artist is a wonderful film and Hazanavicius is such a cool name with Lithuanian origins, so, he should definitely win, in as many categories possible, Kate Winslet by Polanski is a winning combination, too. In the category Best Foreign Film, I would go for La Piele Que Habito -Almodovar forever-, or the Dardenne Brothers. And preferably no Tintin, please, the animation has certain issues. Thanks God Melancholia is nowhere between the nominees. 

That will be all for now; let the best one win. Here comes the full list:

I like the Dardenne Brothers, as much as I like the Belgians, and yes, maybe they need this extra exposure in the States more than Almodovar, in fact.
