The 2010 Golden Globe Nominations were a lot of the usual in most of the categories, with a few truly fucking boneheaded nominations. I'll grant that the Comedy film categories are often kind of weak, but Burlesque and The Tourist? What about Easy A? Hell, Date Night was better. Due Date was better. Cyrus? Really, there were two dozen movies better. Cop Out was better than Burlesque, for God's sake.The Tourist and Burlesque were two of the worst films I've seen this year. The Kids Are All Right shouldn't have to share the same category with those two. And while it's fantastic to see that Katey Sagal was finally recognized for her work on "Sons of Anarchy," that feels a little tainted where the talent pool is apparently so thin that they also had to nominate Piper Perabo for "Covert Affairs." Yes, Ms. Coyote Ugly got a goddamn Golden Globe nomination. Next time, just reduce the number of nominees. Or better yet! Nominate Connie Britton, you hacks.

The drama categories were mostly expected -- Black Swan, The Fighter, The King's Speech and The Social Network all dominated, and along with Inception, where the most nominated films. But where the hell is True Grit? There are zero nominations here, and all I can figure is that the Hollywood Foreign Press simply hadn't seen it yet. Otherwise, it's omission is completely inexplicable. Maybe it didn't qualify. There has to be a reason, right? I'll get back to you on that.

Other criminal omissions: "Community," "Friday Night Lights," and "Raising Hope." And I thought that, since it was so critically beloved, that "Terriers" might sneak in a nomination, too, but I guess the Foreign Press didn't see it, either.

I'll leave you here with the nominations and let you all mull over Piper Perabo ... oh, and Jennifer Love Hewitt for The Client List, which must have gotten a huge boost from our real-time review. You can thank TK for that.
