Tonight is the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, which inevitably means it’s the 72nd year in a row where fans of TV and cinema inevitably get pissed off that their favorite show/movie/performer didn’t get the proper recognition in marble and gold statuette form. Let's reminisce about bad decisions of the past, shall we?
This year’s Golden Globes nominations dropped on Thursday morning, and the TV nominations were not immune to a few shockers. From shows that didn’t get nominated to shows that did, here are the biggest surprises from the 2015 Golden Globes committee.
When Modern Family first took over ABC in 2009, its accolades and awards were completely justified and its giant ensemble cast felt completely refreshing in a TV universe still tethered to the standard quartets and sextets. But it has long since staled and the Golden Globes have finally recognized this by shunning it entirely. And it's great!
We’re ramping up for awards season, with both the Golden Globes and the Oscars hitting the schedule early next year. If anything has made this apparent, it’s the video NBC produced this week featuring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the 2015 hosts of the Golden Globes. Watch them poke fun at red carpet fashion.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have certainly been the “it” ladies at the Golden Globes over the last couple of years. After debuting as hosts in 2013, the two funnywomen signed contracts to host the popular awards ceremony in 2014 and 2015. The real question then is whether or not Poehler and Fey plan to renew their hosting contracts.
One of the biggest stories coming out of this year’s Emmy nominations was the flippant broadness of the TV Academy’s rules for what series went into which categories. Looking to avoid all manner of category controversy are the Golden Globes.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has put a lock on our next outing with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and that date is Sunday, January 11, 2015. Also known as the airdate of the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC. The HFPA and Dick Clark Productions confirmed that the Fey-and-Poehler hosted award show will air on the network live from the Beverly Hills Hilton at 5PM PST/8PM EST. Hooray!
Man, the 2014 Golden Globes were nutty, eh? Awards season’s drunkest cousin on the block had its night in the spotlight on Sunday evening and as is to be expected, they did not disappoint. From minute one the show was off on a rocketing and riotous pace, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler absolutely nailing their opening monologue and things only continued off the rails from there. In a good way, of course!
The Golden Globe awards air tonight! While some of Hollywood’s best and brightest will be gliding down the red carpet and into the Beverly Hilton to attend the event, the rest of us will be in our living rooms, watching from afar. Cinema Blend will be live-blogging the entire event, and you’re invited to join in and comment on everything from the fashion to the speeches, the awards and the sure-to-be hilarious hosts, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
The nominations for the 71st annual Golden Globes are in, and after reviewing the list and doing the side-by-side comparisons between this year’s and the last few years, we’ve picked over the picks to find the snubs, note the surprises and try to figure out what the Hollywood Foreign Press was thinking with their choices, for better or worse.
It’s that time of year again! Yesterday, we heard from the Screen Actors Guild on their nominations for their annual awards ceremony, and today the Hollywood Foreign Press shares their own nominations for the Golden Globe Awards.The Golden Globes celebrate some of the best that TV and film have to offer in the past year.
Back in August, we learned that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were approached about hosting the Golden Globes again. Given how well the hilarious duo did last time around, not to mention the ratings the broadcast brought in, it's no surprise that the Hollywood Foreign Press would want them back. Today comes word that they're not only locked in to host the Golden Globe Awards in 2014, but also 2015.
With 30 Rock sadly off the air, any excuse to get Tina Fey back on our televisions is a good one. Bring back Tina and Amy! Make the Golden Globes relevant and actually funny again!
Sometimes a few changes go a long way. Last night’s Golden Globe telecast opted to cut Ricky Gervais from his normal hosting gig, instead choosing two feisty and intelligent female comedians to propel the show forward. Apparently, this hosting strategy worked, because the Golden Globes have posted their best ratings in six years.
The Golden Globes is an exciting ceremony for a TV fan, as we get to see the stars and producers of some of our favorite TV shows honored with awards for their efforts. It's always good when we, the viewers, agree with the Hollywood Foreign Press on their choices for the past year's best of the best. But it's not always easy to predict which way they'll vote and whether or not they get it right is certainly subject to opinion and debate. And sometimes our picks don't line up with the HFPA's choices.
