A whole LOT of people.

And they're pissed, baby.

I mean they should be pissed, though they're no doubt carrying on with great dignity and occasional bouts of inner screaming.

The Tree of Life got snubbed, even though it's a phantasmagorically riveting filmic experience that I pretty much liked.

So did Extremely Loud & Incredibly Glenn Close or whatever it's called.

Spielberg got bubkes for director.

And other people who've been getting a lot of touting -- like Gary Oldman, Michael Shannon, Nick Nolte, and Melissa McCarthy -- went home with an empty paper bag.

But here's the real tragedy:

Vanessa Redgrave got snubbed for Coriolanus!

I originally had her as a favorite to win Best Supporting Actress bcause she commands the screen with rich, bravura, profoundly stirring dramatic chops and luminescence.

In one nonspeaking second, she can wipe the floor with anyone who did get nominated.

This is sad and unjust, a real travesty.

Oh, well.

She'll live.

But I might not! Waa!

Any group that would nominate anything for Bridesmaids except worst picture isn't worth taking seriously.

Probably just another case of (once again) Hollywood politics gone wild? Some "somebody(s)" must've pissed-off the wrong "somebody else(s)". Gosh......what a SURPRISE, huh?

Michael, you’re wasting valuable outrage. Like who cares what the Golden Globes do? They nominate all the big name stars they can to get the ratings for their annual boozefest. Throughout the years there have been charges that nominees could buy their awards, and considering some of the winners, there's likely some truth to that. All the various awards from all the fairly recent nincompoop groups have severely diminished the honor and guessing game attached to the Oscars. By the time the Academy bestows them, it’s all dull formality because we’ve known for weeks who are going to be crowned.

Yeah, but Vanessa is a much bigger name than the people they did nominate (Shaileene Woodley, Octavia Spencer, Berenice Bejo). So how does that work out with your argument that they only pander to the big names?

Maybe because she doesn't play the game? (also doesn't have to). Not arguing, just speculating.

PS: For Best Song, they've nominated "Hello Hello" (sung in Gnomeo & Juliet by Lady Gaga and Elton John) and "Masterpiece" from W.E. (sung by Madonna). Gaga vs. Madonna!

(Though they usually don't perform the songs on the telecast).
