. . . so prepare for the bitchfest.
You know what? I’ll let go of Justified today. I’ll let go of Community too — I mean, not seriously, not in my heart, but this show is never going to get an award, even if I keep desperately praying/sacrificing small animals for it. But seriously — Game of Thrones got shut out of every TV category? Seriously?
Did you people watch the second season of Game of Thrones? Lena Headey deserves a nomination for “Blackwater” alone. Also: Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, and Charles Dance — all excellent. I know there’s a lot of competition on TV right now, but the fact that GoT was completely ignored is totally ridiculous.
(Also, I don’t watch Smash, so I can’t legitimately complain about its nomination, but everything I’ve ever heard about it says that it’s a terrible show, despite the presence of the ever-awesome Anjelica Houston. Has anyone else seen Smash? Do you think it deserves a nod, or did it just get nominated for Best Musical/Comedy because it’s one of the only musicals on TV?)
As far as movies go — well, I haven’t seen a single one of them yet, nor am I very interested in most of them. (I will see Django Unchained when it comes out in theaters this month, and I am at least somewhat interested in Argo, The Sessions, Moonrise Kingdom, and Silver Linings Playbook — but who knows when I’ll actually watch them. I still have very little to no interest in Lincoln, Life of Pi, Zero Dark Thirty, Flight, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, The Master, Les Miserables, etc. Anyway, no serious complaints about these nominations — not yet, anyway.)
The Golden Globes air on January 13th, 2013. I expect I am still one of the few people who enjoys watching award season, despite my mini-nervous breakdowns over all the various snubs.
