    Okay, for me the shock is Borat. Noms for Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) AND Best Lead Actor (Comedy or Musical). Seriously. I suspect it will lose Best Pic, but ONLY because of Dreamgirls. Sasha Baron Cohen could actually win Best Actor, because while Will Ferrill and Johnny Depp will get votes by the bucketload, they will probably pull from each other's totals more than from Borat fans.

    Also, Leo DiCaprio getting nominated for Best Actor (Drama) TWICE. That's big. Heck, that accent of his in the commercials for that Blood Diamond movie really grates on me, so if he wins I hope its for the other film.

    And I just noticed that this is the year of the double nom, in some ways. Clint Eastwood has done it too, only for Director.

    Well, I obviously need to get to a movie house...hardly seen any of these...but Little Miss Sunshine was fantatic... I'd hate to see it lose to something like Borat.

    I was actually really impressed by this year's Golden Globe nominations. I had actually heard of and/or seen most of the movies. I also was happy to see some shows nominated for awards. Especially being that most of the shows
    I watch, I enjoy.

    Agreed! This is one of the best set of nominations in a very long time! Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press for having a good head on your shoulders!

    I really hope Heroes wins BEST TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA. I think the show deserves the award. Then it can go on to win an Emmy.

    And I'm also surprised with all the Borat nominations. I didn't know it was this good.

    One other thing: which movie do you think is going to win BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM? It's a really close race, so that's why I'm wondering. My bet is Happy Feet, but I would like to see Cars take it for some reason.

    I can't really comment on the movie half of the nominations, because I've seen none of the nominees. There are a couple I want to see (Stranger than Fiction, Notes on a Scandal) but they'll keep for video.

    On the TV half, I really REALLY hate that Desperate Housewives places itself in the comedy category. Marcia Cross did a great job acting in that show last year, but the great performance she turned in was 99% dramatic acting.

    And I thought there was a category for best ensemble cast. Maybe that's a different awards show. I'm going to have to go look that up now.

    Oh yeah, Jean Smart was robbed. She should be nominated instead of the dreadful Sarah Paulson.

    Best Ensemble cast is part of the Screen Actor Guild Awards, FYI

    As to Animated Feature, GO CARS!!! LOVE THAT MOVIE!!

    Oh, thank you - I thought it was only me that didn't care for Sarah Paulson. Something about her earnest saintliness really gets on my nerves, and I don't know what Jean Smart was in this year, but whatever it was I'm quite sure she was fantastic in it like she's been fantastic in everything I've ever seen her in.

    I've not seen Big Love, but I hope that Bill Paxton (my all time favourite actor) wins as he doesn't seem to be garnering the awards he's been due over the years.

    And I only clearly remember two of the movies I've seen this year, Little Miss Sunshine and Borat, both of which were great, albeit in different ways, so I
    can't quite decide who is the more deserving winner.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Jean Smart was the First Lady on 24 and did a great job of going from full-on nutso to super-smart, nailing evil president to the wall during the course of the season. She was awesome. I can only figure that Sarah Paulson got the nod for one or both of two reasons: either the Hollywood Foreign Press figured they had to throw a bone to Sorkin or they thought that she was playing such against her real life (IRL, Sarah Paulson is an out lesbian) that she was really acting. Personally, I find her portrayal horrible, and in better hands the character may actually be somewhat likable, or, at the very least, we could understand why everyone thinks Harriette is a magnificent comedienne.

    And thanks, pschobabe007--I must have been thinking of the SAG awards. I love the ensemble category, because some shows (and movies) don't just hinge on one or two performances, but how the whole company works together.
