Wait, did Avatar turn out to be good and no one said anything?

Lots of love for Inglourious Basterds which is awesome. I hope it translates to another Oscar nomination for Tarantino. (Christoph Waltz had better win.)

LOVE seeing nominations for (500) Days of Summer. Such a great movie that got lost in the shuffle - maybe the most *true* romantic comedy I've ever seen.

I enjoy both shows, but if you think House or True Blood is even in the same league as the inexplicably un-nominated Breaking Bad, you don't deserve to have opinions on things.

AVATAR turned out to be the usual Jim Cameron picture (great FX, hackneyed screenplay) and the HFPA are nominating it so they can get the guy to come to their awards ceremony. Same thing they pulled with Tom Cruise's nom last year.

What a boring year for the awards season. INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and HURT LOCKER notwithstanding, and the only person with a shot from either of those two films is Waltz in Supporting Actor.

Breaking Bad was better this year than last, but gets no love?
Not to mention Sons of Anarchy should have gotten at LEAST a nomination for best drama and best supporting actress.

Criticizing the Golden Globes for snubbing shows of actual quality is a tad silly, don't you think?

The Globes deserves a "bravo" from me for nominating Jane Lynch as Best Supporting Actress on "Glee." Hopefully, the Emmy people do the same next year.

Given how hard it to be nominated for a supporting GG (since it's comedy + drama + mini), I would consider it a very good sign.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

Jeremy Renner got hosed. I'm hoping his snub was just because the Globes tend to nominate bigger names over better performances, and Renner will still get his just Oscar nomination.

I don't think you have anything to worry about, unless the Emmys somehow get dumber than usual. Lynch is the favourite to win at this point.

I'm not THESE NOMINATIONS DON'T RECOGNIZE THE DESERVING POPULAR DUMB MOVIES guy but I don't think this has been a good year in picture motions at all. So what a great year for the Oscars to expand to 20 candidates or whatever.

I think my BMOTY right now is, uh, District 9 or Zombieland. I liked Basterds too. And I want to see Big Fan. Anyway.

Of course, most of this stuff, I have never head of. I don't see a lot of movies, so I have little comment there. I am sure I do not understand either the Dexter or Entourage love. I finally saw Dexter for the first time recently and - let's just say I hate it. Is that too strong. And I see Entourage all the time in hotel rooms. Every episode seems the same.

so, like more people watch NCIS than any other scripted TV show. Like, by a lot, if I read the ratings pages right. How come no nominations? I think Harmon is great in the role. It's not deep, but a hell of a lot of people love it. And I was hoping for LL Cool J to be nominated on NCIS LA. He's awesome.

Oh yeah, to be nominated, no one can actually watch the show. Or not many anyway. Or, alternatively, people have to be allowed to say F***. There are your qualifications. (how did House get in? I need to review those numbers.

A lot of people eat Ramen, but it's not winning any food awards. Me, I eat it every weekend. But I know it isn't the best.

Art and popularity don't have to be enemies, but more often than not what the masses like isn't always the best thing out there - it just may be what is more available to them (Intellectually, physically, emotionally - you get my point).

This is not elitist - it's just the truth. A 5 star dinner is better than a McRib happy meal, but going by the numbers you could argue that McRib should win out.

Harmon is a McRib.

//edit: I have watched Dragon Ball Z and Inuyasha - both are devoid of any value. I'm not above NCIS - I used to watch it. I just don't think it's the paragon of acting or writing. One could use the Walker Texas Ranger precedent for NCIS.

Actually people have seen Bastards and the Hangover. I also expect a shit ton of people to see Avatar too. 30 Rock, House, Office and Mordern Family get good ratings as well. Granted, I think Sons of Anarchy was robbed in this list, I think the list is a nice representation of TV in America. Sadly most of the good stuff is on pay TV, but I do think those pay TV shows get way too much credit in some regards.

House does OK
From http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=39458 More or less chosen at random in the middle of a ratings month

Show Total Viwers
House 12.79 Million
The Office 7.69
30 Rock 5.78
modern family wasn't on this one

NCIS 20.19
NCIS:LA 16.19

and all the CSIs - all 14-16 million or so

I dunno. These awards mean little anyway, I guess

In a just world, District 9 will be up for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. (I think it's got a shot at getting the last one, actually. And with ten spots and a weak year, maybe the first. Maybe they'll even nominate Up... Nah.)

IMO, it is really good.

I honestly feel that John Noble as Dr. Walter Bishop on Fringe is - along with Jeremy Piven/Ari Gold - hands down one of the truly great single characters on any show that I watch, and am fairly surprised to not see him on the list. I'd also agree with the consensus on Jane Lynch (Glee), and hope Edie Falco gets something from her great work on Nurse Jackie.

This is one of the stranger analogies I've ever seen. Last time I checked, a dinner at a 5 star restaurant is an order or two of magnitude more expensive than a McRib. Plus, the five star meal takes 2-3 hours to eat whereas the McRib can be eaten in a car (preferably someone else's). Most tv shows or movies do not cost more in terms of time or money or any other objective measure.

There's nothing wrong with being elitist. These awards are elitist by design. For evidence, just look at the great disdain critics and 'serious' people hold for awards selected by the general public. The biggest praise they give is along the lines of 'I can't believe they picked {insert critic's choice here}' or 'The people actually got it right.' For evidence see starting lineups for all star games.

Edit: I second the love for John Noble. Probably my favorite character ever (aside from Samantha Stephens, except for different reasons).

I think this problem is two fold. First, the general public really has no understanding of the need for critics in our current contemporary media age. Secondly, critics have contributed to their irrelevance both by not explaining their necessity in a way the general public understands and values, and by critiquing media in very much the same way as the general public (e.g. not doing their bloody jobs well).

Some of this is due to the fact that, in the age of the blogs, EVERYONE'S a critic. But I do think a large factor in the failure of critics to be perceived as relevant is the fact that they continually fail to adequately explain to folks the reasons as to why X film is great and Y film isn't.

Critics are SUPPOSED to be the folks who have a vast knowledge of the media they are critiquing, and, thus, their opinions SHOULD be educated and sound - based on years and years of studying the art form. But, even if they have that knowledge and actually use said knowledge in their critiques, they tend to do a piss-poor job of explaining it in their reviews.

I think Sorkin's take is more likely to be a dialogue-driven drama, whereas Fey's is a pure sitcom. The West Wing on one hand, Spin City on the other.
