Follow along as we say the mean things Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are probably thinking.
The awards season madness can officially begin now that the Golden Globes have announced their chosen few for their January 13, 2013 awards. And as always, they're trying to be everything to everyone, doing both movies and TV and ignoring all things reality, and then including mash-ups for their supporting categories. So the nominations are frustrating, to say the least, but the most infuriating thing of all came in the form of one of the biggest snubs we've seen in a list like this in in ages.

Couldn't stomach Ricky Gervais? Didn't feel like sitting through three-hours of drunk celebrities handing each other statuettes? Check out this handy winner's list, as well as our finely-documented liveblog and live tweets, too.
It's the start of movie awards season, and we're already dreading this particular self-congratulation fest since the incessant commercials running for the ceremony make us cringe. They're bringing Ricky Gervais back to say crazy things, but no one liked it the last couple times he did it. We don't get it. So while we have to suffer through the night in real time (because it is our job), there are a few things that could actually make us enjoy it.
It's awards season again, which means that we're mostly flummoxed by the people who come up with nominations for the various prizes. Yesterday, we were scratching our heads over the fact that the SAG Awards had picked Suits' Patrick J. Adams for a Best Actor nom instead of Homeland's Damian Lewis, while today we're wondering how anyone could think Boss had a better season than Breaking Bad. But hey, at least the Hollywood Foreign Press Ass gave the gut-wrenching and brilliantly performed Homeland its due, along with showering Downton Abbey with four nominations. But how did Community and Parks & Recreation get overlooked in the comedy nominations? And how is Alec Baldwin nominated again? And who thinks Mireille Enos is a good actress on The Killing? Anyway, for our initial thoughts on the Globe noms, read on. Fair warning, there's a lot of Community outrage coming your way.
The Emmy Awards basically sucked and were painful to watch and we're still scarred from that whole hosting debacle but we're optimistic that the Golden Globes will be better. At the very least they can't be any worse.
Ordinarily, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's decision to hire the first host of the Golden Globe Awards since 1995 would be considered a huge mistake. After all, one of the charms of that telecast -- aside from the fact that attendees are able to drink at their seats throughout the evening, of course -- is just how fast the ceremony usually flies by thanks to the lack of awkward, forced patter from an eager-to-please host. But in the case of the 2010 Globes (airing Jan. 17, 8PM ET, NBC), we're happy to have the evening in the hands of Ricky Gervais, who, when not creating brilliant television comedy, has spent the last several years often single-handedly enlivening dull awards shows as a presenter or winner. In an interview with us and other media outlets, he explained how he's going to bring his signature style to his role as MC for what has ordinarily been a three-hour schmooze fest.
Congrats, you crazy kids! Enjoy your last New Year's Eve without a baby to rush home to.
