Here are your 2019 Golden Globe nominees

Spoiler alert: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association still sucks

It’s not a very well-kept secret around these parts that we absolutely hate the fucking Golden Globes and every single thing that the “Oscars, but bad” stands for. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association have always been and are currently bad at what they do, and the few times in which they were on the right side of history (say, when they awarded Brokeback Mountain instead of Crash Best Drama back in 2005) aren’t outweighed by the utter fucking insanity of an awards body that somehow thinks that nominating a film like Bohemian Rhapsody — even with the optics of such a choice well apparent to them in a Hollywood still stinging from the revelations about certain bad actors behind the scenes — is a great idea. It’s all exhausting and not worth getting angry over, given that these awards are mainly an excuse for a group of star-fucking journalists to hang out with celebrities, but we present to you the nominees just in case you need some sort of drama-focused escape from the mundanities of modern life.

Adam McKay’s Christian Bale-led Dick Cheney biopic Vice led the pack of Film nominees with six nods, which seems to be a pretty baffling choice given how the press has been responding to it in the last several weeks. On the TV side, The Assassination of Giovanni Versace: American Crime Story received four. We know jack shit about television, so we’ll just say that we liked the first season of American Crime Story and are happy that the second season sits high on our watchlist when football season ends. But hey, these are the Golden Globes, where the rules are made-up and the points don’t matter. We will say that we’re happy that Eighth Grade‘s Elsie Fisher was nominated, though. Good for her.
