Golden Globe Nominees Released, Non-Celebrities Underrepresented AS USUAL

The Golden Globes released their nominees this morning and it was the typical list of who ‘s who among popular actors, directors, movies, and tv shows. Every award season we go through the same thing. ‘Oh, this person ‘s in the news just because they made a great movie recently, LET ‘S GIVE THEM AN AWARD NOMINATION!” It ‘s all so predictable and disgusting.

This year it ‘s all about Birdman, who got the most nominations (7), and the biggest surprise is TV newcomer Fargo with 5 nominations. But everyone has seen Birdman and Fargo and knows they are absolutely amazing.

Just once I ‘d like to wake up on the second Thursday in December, peruse the list of nominees for the upcoming Golden Globes, and see an actor or a film that no one has ever heard of. Like someone who doesn ‘t even have an imdb page because they aren ‘t an actor at all. Like a nurse in Delaware or a trash can salesman in Cincinnati. There are some people in the world who aren ‘t actors, Hollywood! If you take a look outside your little bubble, FOR ONCE.

Here ‘s a full list of the nominees. I took it upon myself to write in a non-Hollywood Insider to each list so that you don ‘t get bored with reading the same old boring famous names and titles:
