The 2017 Golden Globe nominees have been released, and they are wacky

The 2017 Golden Globes nominees have been released, and they are filled with all the wackiness and unpredictability that the Golden Globes are known for.

Seriously, Deadpool is nominated for Best Motion Picture. What the shit? Don’t get me wrong, Deadpool was great, but it wasn’t the best film of the year. There are also some notable omissions, including Arrival, which is a ridiculous oversight. How dare they!?

And that’s what makes the Golden Globes so great. They are the buffer for the Oscars. The Globes can nominate ridiculous things, then the Oscars can point and laugh while frantically changing some of their early lists for the year’s best. In the end, the two awards shows aren’t that far apart though when it comes to winners. There are always a few big differences, but more often than not they will come to the same results – which is good news for Amy Adams, who should totally win Best Actress for Arrival.

By the way, go see Arrival.

The TV side of things is going to be a bit contentious this year too, but that’s as much a reaction to the abundance of good shows in 2016 as the Globes snubbing a particular property. There could be ten other shows on that list, but what would you remove?

Unsurprisingly, HBO did very well on the TV side, while in films, Mel Gibson proved once again that there’s really no embarrassing personal meltdown you can’t come back from. What’s a little anti-Semitism between friends? Streaming services also continue to push their way onto the awards scene, with nods to multiple shows from Netflix and Amazon.

The 74th Annual Golden Globe winners will be announced on Sunday, January 8, 2017 in a live event hosted by Jimmy Fallon. Once the results are revealed, everyone will come together to accept the choices and respect the outcomes. Or they will bitterly complain until the Oscars. It’s kind of a tradition at this point.
