Golden Globe Nominations Are Out!

Ricky Gervais returns to the stage to host the 73rd Golden Globes presented on January 10th at 8 p.m. Central on NBC. Awards season is rolling in and the nominations are here! The Hollywood Foreign Press announced its nominations this morning, and it was exciting to hear names like Amy Schumer and Will Smith in the movie categories, while new shows like Outlander and Mr. Robot, gathered some important nominations.

I have a feeling that Leonardo DiCaprio is heading for a big year for his performance in The Revenant, female funny girl Amy Schumer will hit it with Trainwreck and the Spotlight crew will dominate as well. On the TV scene, I’m really hoping to see Outlander on the map, whose first season makes Game of Thrones look like a Peanuts movie. Viola Davis pulled off a record breaking Emmy for her mastery in How To Get Away with Murder. I’m hoping she continues her well deserved recognition.

Overall, the nominations are spot on, give or take a Tom Hanks (Bridge of Spies) and a Meryl Streep (Ricki and the Flash). I think we will all be happy. Here are some of the top categories and their nominations:
