Lamest Golden Globe Nomination?
You're serious, Hollywood? You really want us to go see a silent movie? In 2011? And not be bored out of our minds?
Also known as "Emma Stone's Bad Hair Day," some argued that the well-meaning movie actually painted black housekeepers from the early civil rights era in an unflattering light. Nevertheless, it scored 5 Globe nods.
"The Descendants"/George Clooney
We know we're in the minority, but George Clooney always looks kind of smug to us. And this movie seems kind of pretentious. Alas, it earned five nods, including best actor for Clooney.
Our uncle loves baseball, and guess what? Even he was bored by this movie. But it's up for best drama, and Pitt scored a best actor nod.
Leonardo DiCaprio/"J. Edgar"
Take it from us: "J. Edgar" is the antidote to insomnia. And Leo DiCaprio tries hard, but his old-man makeup isn't totally convincing. Nevertheless, he's up for best actor in a drama.
Have you ever seen this show? And not wanted to kill yourself afterward? We just can't feel too sorry for this hunky male prostitute. Nevertheless, Jane is up for best actor in a television musical or comedy.
We know we're in the minority on this one, but we only found "Bridesmaids" to be KIND of funny -- and way too crass at times. It's up for best comedy or musical, and Wiig scored an acting nod.
"Too Big to Fail"
Want to watch a bunch of stressed-out white guys running around, and some close-ups of Paul Giamatti eating breakfast? Then this movie is for you. (It's up for best miniseries or motion picture made for TV.)
"The Artist," a silent, black-and-white movie about a declining male film star and a rising actress in the era when "talkies" were replacing soundless movies, earned a leading six Golden Globe nominations on Thursday. You're serious, Hollywood? You really want us to go see a silent movie? In 2011?
Other nominations were equally annoying. "The Descendants," a family drama featuring George Clooney, earned five nods, even though we're not buying Clooney's "sensitive" act.
"The Help" -- also known as "Emma Stone's Bad Hair Day" -- scored five nominations, even though some argued that the well-meaning movie actually painted black housekeepers from the early civil rights era in an unflattering light.
Brad Pitt gets a nod for "Moneyball," even though our baseball-loving uncle found it dull. So does Leonardo DiCaprio for "J. Edgar," despite the unconvincing old-man makeup.
