  1. It seemed like a generally very weak year for film, particularly after last year. Grey's Anatomy should be replaced by BG on the list. It's too pretentious for anyone's good health.

  2. 'Little Children' was wonderful.

    However, for the life of me I cannot understand the love for 'The Queen'. Granted Helen Mirren was, as always, wonderful, but the movie itself was like sitting through a TV movie of the week.

  3. Michael Sheen should have been nominted for "The Queen"... his portrayal of Tony Blair was every bit as strong as Helen Mirren's queen. Somehow, I still think he'll get an Oscar nomination. Same goes for Ryan Gosling.

  4. There is a shift from last year's overcrowding of males in the great acting department, to this year's overcrowding in the female arena. Strange.

  5. Babel was a great film, tho perhaps not a great movie.
    definitely not golden globe material, but oscar-worthy.

  6. Chestnut, Michael Sheen was submitted in the Lead category (as Jake Gyllenhaal was last year), and like Jake G. didn't make the cut. He will very likely get an Oscar nom for Supporting though. The Queen is basically the Capote of this year.

    And Greg, good thing you saved your pee because Cate Blanchett (in Babel) had enough to go around for everyone. :P

  7. Oh, thank god. While most seventeen-year-old high school girls are getting their news from CosmoGirl and "The Real World", I'm lucky enough to have Towleroad. I know it's "the blog for modern gay men", but inexplicably it also has the best selection of news items in terms of my interests. Thank you, Mr. Towle! Because I care an awful lot about the Golden Globe noms, in all honesty, and like some other people here, couldn't find a list anywhere else.

    "House" should definitely, definitely have been nominated for Best Television Drama. It far surpasses "Grey's Anatomy"...

  10. That Heroes should get a nomination while The Wire, which is not only the best written (and acted) show on T.V but also the most relevent, gets nothing is kind of tragic.

  11. I've seen Dreamgirls twice now, and it's a damn shame that BILL CONDON didn't get nominated for either category. he SO deserves it.

    Posted by: Matt | Dec 14, 2006 4:48:12 PM


  12. I think that Battlestar Galactica is terribly undervalued, and deserves attention. Mary McDonnell, Edward James Olmos, James Callis and Lucy Lawless all deserve quite a bit of praise for their skill. The writing also happens to be fantastic. Check it out even if you are not a Sci-Fi fan (I'm not) and be prepared to be wowed by a show that could have just been another genre project, but has for the last two years provided constantly compelling programming. (Um. Jamie Bamber is also hot beyond belief.)

  13. Eirekev, thanks for posting those. It was sad to see three of my favorite "movies" left out on the original list - Bleak House (AMAZING adaptation), Elizabeth I (leaps and bounds above the Blanchett version), and Prime Suspect: The Final Act (Mirren can do no wrong). If you haven't seen any of these you're missing out, especially Bleak House. Gillian Anderson's Lady Dedlock is some of the best work I've seen all year.

  14. The Golden Globes did a great job this year with their nominations, in my opinion.

  15. OH WHO CARES IF BABLE SUCKED!!!

    The real question is will Brad and Angelina turn up on the red carpet together again *swoons*

    Posted by: steve | Dec 15, 2006 6:58:23 AM


  16. I've been on the wrong threads all day....

    Thank you whoever said "Crash" was awful. Thank you to Patrick for mentioning Battlestar. It's got the sci fi stigma and most people dont realize it's really not scifi but drama.

    Have no interest in seeing "Babel". Looks too much like "Syriana" and when I learned that the plot for "Syriana" was supposed to be obscure and confusing I decided to pass. I'm a bright boy but there has to be a story I can follow.

    Haven't seen "Little Children" yet but want to.

    Went into "The Queen" without any expectations except I had already seen Helen Mirren portray Elizabeth I and knew she could pull it off. Boy did I underestimate that movie. Hands down my favorite so far this year.

  17. I wonder if PH only eats gay food...
