The 2015 Golden Globe nominations have been announced, sending the Internet into a tizzy.
The annual awards, which will be held on Jan. 11, 2015, will be hosted by not only one, but two comediennes, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Apparently, the “Saturday Night Live” alumnae were so popular last year they’ve been asked to make a hosting comeback.
Among the nominated movies for drama include “Boyhood” (all 12 years of it), “Selma,” “The Imitation Game,” “The Theory of Everything” (yay, for Eddie Redmayne!), and “Foxcatcher.”
Up for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama are Julianne Moore for her Alzheimer’s performance in “Still Alice,” a backpacking Reese Witherspoon for “Wild,” ethereal Rosamund Pike in the thriller “Gone Girl,” Felicity Jones as Stephen Hawking’s ex-wife in “The Theory of Everything” and a scarred and heavier Jennifer Aniston in “Cake.”
Best Actor nods for Motion Picture Drama went to Eddie Redmayne who plays Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” (will this be a full sweep win for “Theory”, we wonder?), Benedict Cumberbatch for his role in the biographical “The Imitation Game,” a gray-haired Steve Carell in a serious role for once for “Foxcatcher,” David Oyelowo for “Selma,” and the creepy Jake Gyllenhaal for “Nightcrawler.”
The list is long, but we have all our favorites in the mix. Think Kevin Spacey, Liev Schreiber, Julianna Margulies, Robin Wright, Viola Davis, Emily Blunt (we’re crushing on this elegant tough chick!), Julianne Moore, Dame Helen Mirren, Quevenzhane Wallis, Michael Keaton (this guy sure knows how to make a comeback!), Bil Murray (he’s up for two awards!), Joaquin Phoenix, William H. Macy, Frances McDormand and our favorite villains, Ralph Fiennes and Christoph Waltz.
Let’s not forget Jake Gyllenhaal’s equally (if not more) talented sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal for “The Honorable Woman,” Jessica Lange, Matthew McConaughey, Martin Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Michelle Monaghan, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, Keira Knightley and Jessica Chastain.
We’ve yet to mention the shameful snubs for this year, as well as the movies and shows that have made the cut. While you figure out who your strongest bets are, take a look at this clip of the announcements:
