Golden Globes Guide: Who Won And Who Should Have

image

Awards season started tonight with the precursor to the Oscars, The Golden Globes.  And as usual, I felt there are were some truly glaring omissions. For example, Tom Hardy really should’ve at least been nominated for his amazing duo turn, portraying both of the Kray Brothers in the underrated “Legend.” “Trumbo” deserved a Best Film nod more than “Room.”  No Best Director credit for Adam McKay of “The Big Short” or my boy, Quentin Tarantino was also crazy.

I positively hated Michael Fassbender in the role of Steve Jobs. In fact, I found the whole movie an insulting character assassination. If you didn’t know anything about Jobs, all this film would teach you is he was an awkward, deadbeat Dad and a bit of a creep. Sorkin only won because people think his past work was clever. Ashton Kutcher did a much better job, in a far more even portrayal, in Joshua Michael Stern’s 2013 film,”Jobs”.

There were also major problems with the TV nominations. “Bloodline” should’ve been nominated for a Best Drama TV award rather than “Mr. Robot.” And Taranji being nominated without Terence Howard, who she plays all her best scenes with, was just ridiculous. Her win made my whole night, Cookie is the most memorable TV character in years!
