HERE ARE THE NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2016 GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS

The Golden Globe Award nominations for 2016 were announced yesterday. I ran the list here, though I didn’t say anything about it at the time. I don’t have much to say now, since award-season handicapping isn’t remotely what this site is about. However, these nominations this year are in fact interesting, since they’re generally, noticeably more tasteful than we usually get from the Golden Globes, a ceremony normally notorious for nominating the most famous people regardless of what movies they made that year (i.e. Johnny Depp for THE TOURIST.) The Golden Globes are considered a useful predictor of the Oscar nominations, which don’t land until January. The big news here is that MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and George Miller have been nominated for Best Motion Picture and Best Director, which feels like the kind of justice rarely seen around this time of year. But maybe it’s inescapable: Water’s wet, sky’s blue, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is one of the best movies of the year, if not the single best. Sometimes even high-falutin’ critics and over-the-top award shows can’t argue with the forces of nature.

That said, the Golden Globes are still very silly, and the reason I say they’re silly is because there’s such little rhyme or reason to the categories. The Best Picture nominations and all the acting awards are split across the lines of “Drama” and “Comedy,” yet there’s only one field for Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Score, and so on– as if the specialized skill set a George Miller or a Ridley Scott brings to a film should be in direct competition with the talents of a Judd Apatow, an Adam McKay, or a Paul Feig. Arguably the Oscars’ biggest flaw is their thorough oversight of the art of comedy, but at least the Oscars ignores comedy altogether — the Golden Globes muddy the waters with this half-assed approach. And where are the awards for Cinematography or Editing or Costuming or Set Design? Sometimes the people giving the big awards to movies seem to know the least about them. I love actors too, but none of these movies would be as good as they are without all the below-the-line craftsmen who elevate cinema to the unique art form it is. This is film, not theater. And then of course TV is mixed in randomly, but without any recognition of the writers. Does TV write itself? Pretty sure the Foreign Press Association thinks actors do every job on set.

Anyway, why am I complaining? This isn’t the list I would have come up with, but of course it isn’t, and you’ll get to read mine soon enough, and at least FURY ROAD is getting some of its due. There’s your bright side.
