“Game of Thrones” and Peter Dinklage getting nominated is the only things that matter for the Golden Globes…

Well the Golden Globe nominations are here. The only nominations,  I’m pretty much excited about is “Game of Thrones” being nominated for Best Drama TV series and Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion) getting nominated for “Best Actor in a Supporting Role”.

The rest of the nominees are pretty disappointing. Look like this is going to be a big year for George Clooney, because he has two films out that could be huge for the Golden Globes/Oscars, “The Descendants” and “The Ides of March”. I haven’t seen either films but looking forward to seeing them when they hit DVD.

I haven’t even seen, “The Help” yet, but I’ll probably rent the DVD through Netflix sometime. Only Best Picture movie I’ve seen, was “Moneyball”, which was a really good film though. I do want to see Spielberg’s new movie, “War Horse”, I’ll probably wait for DVD on that one too.

“Game of Thrones” and Peter Dinklage will probably win. Peter is a talented actor, I love the “Game of Thrones” series, and can’t wait for Season 2 later this year.

Golden Globes thoughts, actually wasn’t a bad show…

Just got done watching the “Golden Globes”. Wasn’t a bad show. Pretty decent. Some great choices and a few bad ones.

See the winners here:

A few shockers that I never saw coming. Robert Downey Jr. for “Sherlock Holmes” and Jeff Bridges “Crazy Heart”, I never thought they would get it. Good choices on them. I was also shocked by John Lithgow winning for “Dexter” that was also surprising.

I was also kind of surprised that Tina Fey didn’t even win anything this year, which is actually good, give someone else a chance finally.

I didn’t like Alec Baldwin winning again.

I’m happy for Kevin Bacon winning for “Taking Chance” as I want to see that movie that’s based on HBO. I’m glad for Drew Barrymore, she never won something that big before and she admitted it on stage during her acceptance speech. I’m sure Drew Barrymore won other small awards for her films but she never won anything that big for the Globes/Oscars. It’s about time too.

Ricky Gervais the host, was actually pretty funny, I laughed at his jokes. Of course, there had to be a few jokes about the “Jay Leno vs. Conan O’ Brien” feud tonight. Ricky Gervais and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger both joked about it.

The only reason I watched tonight’s “Golden Globes” was that so I can tell what the potential Oscar nominations will be.

I’ve seen most of the movies nominated except for “Julie and Julia”, “It’s Complicated”, and “Precious”. I’ll be looking forward to seeing them when they hit DVD. “Julie and Julia” is already on DVD and I’ll see that one when I get around to it. I like Meryl Streep too.

Not a bad show overall, lets hope the Oscars will be a little better. We will know the Oscar nominations very soon on Feb. 2nd which is just around the corner.
