Golden Globe nominations!

Well, the Golden Globe nominations were announced Monday, and I find myself with little to say about them. I've only seen one of the eleven movies nominated for Best Picture (The Incredibles). I admit to being curious as to how Ray got nominated in the Picture - Musical Or Comedy category, since my understanding is that it's neither a comedy nor a musical. The answer, apparently, is that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association believes that dramatic biopics about musicians, such as Ray, De-Lovely, and Beyond the Sea, are musicals. That's … not completely stupid, I guess, at least by Hollywood Foreign Press Association standards.

In the television caregory, I was very pleased that Arrested Development earned a nomination in the Television Series - Musical Or Comedy category, and that both Jason Bateman and Zach Braff were nominated in the Actor In A Leading Role - Musical Or Comedy Series category. Both AD and Scrubs deserved nominations in the Supporting Actor/Actress categories as well, but I'll live.
