2014 Golden Globe Awards Nominations Are Out!

It’s that time of the year again as awards season kicks off so that Hollywood can pat itself on the back and let everyone know that their work is magical. Today’s announcement is for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, as chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and there seems to be few surprises as most of the nominees were pretty much destined for their spots. Of course, the Golden Globe Awards always trend towards a few headscratchers and there are some to report as usual.

Starting off on the movies side, 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle are both tied for the lead with the most nominations in the film category with seven, including the best picture drama for 12 Years and best picture comedy (?) for Hustle. Chiwetel Ejiofor was nominated for Best Actor in a drama for his raw take in 12 Years. Other nominated actors include Idris Elba for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips, Robert Redford for All Is Lost and Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. Looking at the Best Actress for a drama side, Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine and Sandra Bullock for Gravity headlines that list. Alexander Payne’s Nebraska is picking up heat as well with nominations for Best Picture for Musical or Comedy, Bruce Dern for Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for June Squibb.

Nebraska-Bruce-Dern

If there were any sort of surprises, it’s that Lee Daniel’s The Butler scored exactly zero nominations. Of course, when compared to say, Rush, which scored the Best Drama nomination, it’s a bit of a surprise considering the amount of box office it did as well as the prestige behind the film. Apparently Oprah’s reach does not extend to the Hollywood Foreign Press. Another snub would be for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which seemed destined for a few nominations but Ben Stiller will have to see if Oscar shines on his picture later. Fruitvale Station and Michael B. Jordan also was left off the list after creating buzz earlier this year. Harrison Ford also did not get nominated for 42, as well as the late great James Gandolfini for his great role in Enough Said.

As for the television side, Game of Thrones gets robbed again. That could basically be the sum of it all because I don’t understand how a terrific show or just piece of media does not get nominated for its greatness. It’s baffling to me. However, for Best Television Drama, seeing House of Cards get nominated, along with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright for Best Actor and Actress respectively makes me happy. In fact, Netflix should be happy that they scored a nomination for Orange Is The New Black’s Taylor Schilling.

Masters of Sex seems to be the big winner as they scored a nomination for Best TV Series Drama and Lead Actor for Michael Sheen. Arrested Development, a favorite here in the Grizzly Bomb office, did not get a Best Comedy nomination but did score a Best Actor for Jason Bateman. Michael J. Fox also scored a Lead Actor nomination for his show and Brooklyn Nine-Nine scored a nomination for Best Comedy and Best Actor for Andy Samberg. As for the mini-series categories, American Horror Story: Asylum and Behind the Candelabra dominated those categories so no real surprises there.

MASTERS OF SEX (SEASON 1)

Pinkman - Yeah Bitch

Godzark’s (Overly Optimistic) Preview of INSIDE OUT: It’s bound to be “Right Side Up.”

Every once in a great while I see a movie preview that gets me so excited that I lose sleep the week of its release. A movie that even with only a 30 second trailer, I know is going to keep my eyes glued to the screen for two hours. This week a movie is set for release that fits these characteristics, and that movie is called, Inside Out.

Inside Out, stars Triple H, Parker Posey, Bruce Dern, a jar of pickles, and an acting legend that we’ll discuss in just a little bit. First though – Triple H.

Sure Triple H has made quite a name for himself in the world of professional wrestling, but his accomplishments in the squared circle mean nothing in the world of professional acting. Let’s face it, most of us see a movie trailer with a professional wrestler in it and we instantly throw it into the “Do not see,” pile in our head, however for Triple H’s new movie, Inside Out, this may not be the case.

This is how I shower.

In the movie Inside Out, Triple H has teamed up with acting icon, MICHAEL RAPAPORT to bring audiences two hours of non-stop action gold! Michael Rapaport’s acting prowess has been seen time and time again in every movie he has done, so one can only imagine the honor it must be for Triple H, being chosen to star on the big screen with him. For those who have been living under a rock, or have not ever treated themselves to a film or television show with Mr. Rapaport in it, let me introduce this man to you all.

New York native Michael Rapaport has, for over 20 years, left his mark in the entertainment business, starring in both movies and television shows. With such seminal films as, The 6th Day , Deep Blue Sea , and Dr. Dolittle 2 , Michael Rappaport has shared his gift of acting with the rest of the world, all while solidifying his legacy as the world’s greatest entertainer.

In the 1990’s, fans of shows such as NYPD Blue, Friends, and ER were all treated to special appearances by the tall statured, curly-haired, acting genius. Although he made appearances on these shows, he never had a fulltime role, which was more than likely due to these shows not possessing the funding that it would take to hire on an actor of his caliber for a full season, let alone multiple seasons. He did however have a show on FOX from 2005-2007 – The War at Homewhich in my opinion was one of the best television series of the last 20 years!

Now that I have introduced a man who should need no introduction, let me give you all the basic premise of, Inside Out, just to get you all a little excited for this action packed blockbuster:

AJ who is played by Triple H, has just gotten out of prison for manslaughter of a man who intended on killing his best friend Jack. While in prison, Jack (Rapaport), takes care of AJ’s wife and daughter who he never knew he had. While out of prison AJ has high hopes of leaving his old ways behind him, and starting a new life. These plans are quickly interrupted as AJ is quickly forced into a situation where he once again has to protect his best friend from another mobster, Jacks own father. Will Triple H, go into total ass whooping mode, or will he bitch out??? My guess is that we’re gonna see Triple H throw down with some sorry SOB’s.

I, for one, will be at the movies at 10 a.m. on Friday morning to see the first showing of this film, and I can’t wait. It’s about time that we saw the resurgence of good old fashion action movies, with quality acting, and I’m sure with Michael Rappaport’s guidance, we will see a great performance from Triple H as well.  With how much Triple H kicks ass in the ring, and how much Michael Rapaport kicks ass at life/acting, there is no way this movie is going to let any true action movie fan down. There is no doubt that Inside Out is going to be RIGHT SIDE UP!!!

If you are unable to see the movie in theaters, have no fear the movie is set to be released on DVD in less than three weeks!
