My Very Late Reaction to the Golden Globe Nominations!

Ah, the Golden Globes.  The drunkest night of the year will again be hosted by two of my favorite ladies, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  The nominations came out Thursday (yes, I am late), and I've already seen some people talking about the categorization of movies on Facebook.  I haven't seen American Hustle yet, but I don't know how it's a comedy.  I'm sure the colorful characters do some funny antics, but it doesn't looks like a comedy to me.  But what do I know?  I haven't seen it yet.  Anyhoo, here are the nominations for the film categories for this year's awards.

The categories may be a bit skewed, but there is some good stuff here.  Insanely happy that Delpy got in for Actress, and even though I don't like Gerwig, it's great that she finally got some notices.  The movie is tiny, so those two nominations are awesome.  I am anxious to see how Labor Day turns out, because I just finished reading the book.  I can already tell that Winslet will be great as always.  Obviously, the biggest question mark is Oprah's absence for The Butler, but, hey, Sally Hawkins got in.  Happy dance.  Inside Llewyn Davis presence is also great.
