Nomination Time

I love Golden Globes and Oscar time. I love speculating who is going to win vs. who I want to win. And this year I have some very strong opinions. So I decided to break down those categories that I have strong feelings about.

Best Motion Picture - Drama
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
Up in the Air

The only film I've seen in this list is Up in the Air, so obviously I want that to win. Based on other buzz and reviews I've seen, however, I think that Precious is probably going to take it.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Sandra Bullock, The Proposal
Marion Cottilard, Nine
Julia Roberts, Duplicity
Meryl Streep, It’s Complicated
Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia

I saw The Proposal. And I saw Julie & Julia. I am going to see It's Complicated, because apparently one of my friends from college has a scene with Meryl and Alec (HOW AWESOME IS THAT??), and I intend to see Nine because I love that musical. I haven't heard of Duplicity. But, again, based on what I saw and what I've heard.... I think (and want) Meryl Streep to win for Julia Child. It was just awesome.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Penélope Cruz, Nine
Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air
Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air
Mo’Nique, Precious
Julianne Moore, A Single Man

I LOVE ANNA KENDRICK. I love her. I thought she was hilarious in Camp... she's my favorite part of that movie. She's perfect as Jessica in the Twilight Saga (in fact if you ask anyone who knows me... I SQUEALED when I saw that Anna would be playing Jessica. Because I love her). She was great in Up in the Air. I really want her to win. She won't. But I really want her to. I think Mo'Nique is probably going to take that... or Julianne Moore.

It's not that I don't CARE about the other categories, but these are the categories that I have strong feelings about. I do hope Clooney wins for Up in the Air. I really thought that was a great film.

I also have strong opinions for the television nominations also. I hope Mad Men wins again for best drama. This season was I think the best yet, and if you aren't watching Mad Men yet, what is wrong with you? Mad Men is the awesome! But I'd be just as happy if True Blood won. I'm torn on best actress for drama... because I love Anna Paquin, Kyra Sedgwick, January Jones, and Juliana Margulies (not that I hate Glenn Close because I loves her, I just don't watch Damages).

The only thing that I will be upset if it doesn't happens... I love my NPH. And Barney Stinson is (wait for it) legendary. I think it's Neil's time.

The Proposal is one of my favorite movies ever, and Sandra was great in it, but Meryl as Julia was phenomenal. I hope she wins.

As for the TV noms, I'm really upset that I didn't see John Noble's name up for Supporting Actor in a drama. He plays Walter Bishop on Fringe, and he's amazing.

I actually don't watch Fringe. Being a LOST fan, you think I would. But I never got into it.

Who is in It's complicated?

I've only seen the Proposal (like 4times now!). I plan to see Julie & Julia and I'ts Complicated. Johnand I are going to see Avatar this weekend.

I think the movie categories are really strong this year and many of them are toss ups. I think Up in the Air will take a bunch but Precious could sneak in there too. Very difficult.
