2016 Golden Globe Nominees
The end of the year always means a couple of things: frantically trying to think of new goals and resolutions for the year ahead, annual "best-of" lists coming out in virtually every publication you can imagine, and of course, nominations for awards season.
This year's Golden Globe nominees were announced this week by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and it was the usual mix of the expected vs. the unexpected. Critical darlings La La Land and Moonlight lead the pack with the most nominations, and the R-rated superhero comedy Deadpool received nominations both for Best Comedy or Musical Picture as well as a Best Actor nom for Ryan Reynolds.
In the television category, I'm thrilled to see that Stranger Things got a nomination for best drama series, and in the comedy category it's the usual face-off between Veep and Transparent. Nothing surprising there.
