bitchy | 2023 Golden Globes nominations: a grab-bag full of WTFery

It was so lovely earlier this year, not having to waste any energy on the Golden Globes. After many high-level complaints about the creeps and racists in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the 2022 Golden Globes were untelevised and they were barely a blip on the awards season. But they’ll be back in about a month – on Tuesday, January 10, the 2023 Globes will air on NBC and Peacock. This is the HFPA’s last year of their NBC deal, and even then, they had to move it from a Sunday to a Tuesday. I wonder if anyone will show up? In any case, the Golden Globes nominations came out this morning. I’m not going to publish the whole list, just the biggest TV and film nominations – you can go to THR to see the full list.

[From The NY Times]

If you ask me, these nominations are stupid and all-over-the-place. The love being shown for Triangle of Sadness alone is a big bag of WTF. And Ana de Armas in Blonde? Please, that movie was an exploitative disaster and Ana wasn’t even good in it. Brad Pitt getting a nomination for Babylon? HORK. I predict that The Banshees Of Inisherin will be a major awards contender, as will Cate Blanchett and TAR. Anyway, I really don’t care.
