Tom Cruise got a nomination :up:
 
Glad that Heath got a nom, and also Sean Penn. I just saw "Milk" last night...excellent movie. It should be up for more awards, but at least Penn got some recognition. Also glad to see Tom Cruise getting some respect again. He was hilarious in that movie.
 
Cruise's extended cameo in Tropic Thunder was definitely funny - albeit dragged out. But "Best Supporting Actor?" :whatever:

Further proof that the Globes are all about kissing up to celebrities with their choice of nominations.
 
LOL, that is a good point... he did have a very small part. But I still laughed my ass off in pretty much every scene he was in. And I've seen the media give him so much crap for SO long now, that it's nice to see him get some recognition for his ability again.

Also, really glad to see that Rebecca Hall got a nom for Vicky Christina Barcelona. She was brilliant in that movie.

One film that should get an oscar nom that won't (and also was ignored here) Emily Mortimer for Best Actress in Transsiberian. One of the best performances of the year, IMO.
 
Well, Milk's got only 1 nominations? Oscars will look different, I think...
 
True Blood got nominated for Best TV Series Drama :up:

Hope Downey gets the supporting nod, would love to see his speech.
 
Seeing Heath get his nomination really did put a smile on my face.
 
Cruise was a great surprise to Tropic Thunder, and as much as I have lost respect for the guy in the last few years, he was hilarious. However it does not warrant a Best Support Actor nomination
 
Dude, Tom Cruise totally deserves that nomination. Total transformation only topped by Heath's transformation into the Joker.
 
I think The Dark Knight deserved a Best Pic (Drama) nod. They totally shunned it.

I was more impressed with Downy, Jr's transformation than Tom Cruise. Cruise, while funny, was just wearing a fat suit playing a foul mouthed cut-throat executive. Downy, Jr on the other hand was playing an Australian playing an African-American. Of course he got nominated as well, but I'm just saying

Yeah, he was playing a dude playing a dude dressed as another dude. :woot:
 
Milk, Dark Knight, and Wall-e will get their due in the oscars
 
Yeah, I agree that they shunned TDK and Milk in the Best Picture category. Here's to hoping they get more recognition at oscar time. Still, I am glad to see that some of the standout performances in those films got the nod.

I haven't seen Frost/Nixon yet, and it does look good, but I didn't like Langella in the trailer. His Nixon impersonation was pretty poor, from what I saw. I suppose you could argue that how much he actually sounds or looks like Nixon isn't as important as how effective he is as a character onscreen, but I think that if you're playing a real person, you have a duty to be as close to that figure as possible.
 
No other nod for TDK except Ledger? S***! :mad: :down

If it won't get any main nominations from the academy, it will be the last time, when I watch the ceremony! :cmad:

yeah i hear frost nixon was a little underwelming, and just a typical ron howard film. The Academy loves Howard though cause he is Spielberg Jr.

Personally, i think Milk, Benjamin Button, Dark Knight, Wall-e, and Slumdog should be nominated

Dark Knight and Wall-e had the most cultural impact on society and that should be looked at while choosing nominations
 
I used to like Ron Howard but he totally let me down with The Da Vinci Code. That was such a good book and I was REALLY excited for the movie... but it was terrible. Talk about a director who didn't know how to handle something great. I'm not looking forward to seeing how he screws up Angels and Demons.
 
I'm goddamn happy for Ledger but I have to say I'm a bit surprised there's no other nom' for TDK.....not a good omen for the oscar even if anything is possible:huh:


Like i used to say: expect the best, prepare for the worse:sleepy:








PS: RDJ and Tom for Tropic thunder.....greaaaaaaaaat:applaud

I can't believe TDK only got one nomination. I'm surprised. I guess it won't do well for the Oscars.

not true, the oscars and the golden globes are usually vastly different in nominations and wins
 
Hmmm, I'm pretty surprised The Dark Knight was completely snubbed with most awards besides the obvious Heath nod. Perhaps this could effect it's Oscar chances? Who know, they're usually different anyway. Milk got snubbed, as well.

Awesome that Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. both got nominated. :applaud
 
Awesome to see that RDJ got nominated for playing a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.
 
Supporting actor is all TDK was ever guaranteed come awards season. Director and Picture was always a stretch. I thought the Best Picture category might've been weak this season since projected favorites like Australia and Changeling weren't received well but it looks like their spaces are being filled rather easily without going to the blockbusters like Wall-E or TDK.
 
Man, f*** Tom Cruise. Yes, he was funny and all, but in no way deserving of a supporting actor nom. They should have dropped him and given the extra spot to Aaron Eckhart. That man was the unsung hero of TDK.
 
Cruise's extended cameo in Tropic Thunder was definitely funny - albeit dragged out. But "Best Supporting Actor?" :whatever:
Agreed, that's ridiculous imo :whatever:

Poetic: i must agree with u. I think TDK's realistic hope is Heath... i'm very happy about his nomination :applaud
