The Golden Globes Decided To Make Some Bold Choices This Year



You know, for a while there I was getting concerned that folks would forget how genius Master of None is on Netflix. Then came last week's Golden Globe nominations and, just like that, my hope was restored. Lead actor (and co-creator) Aziz Ansari was nominated, though the series itself was criminally snubbed for best comedy series (in a category with two series I've never even heard of).

But Lady Gaga, who has seriously surprised me in this season's American Horror Story: Hotel, was recognized for her portrayal of the maniacal Countess. And Fargo received three nominations for actors Kirsten Dunst and Patrick Wilson, as well as a nomination for best dramatic series. If you haven't seen this season of the series, do yourself a favor and catch up On Demand because it is seriously bats**t crazy in the best way possible.

I'd like to also take this time to applaud the Globes for acknowledging the fact that Mad Max existed this year and it is incredible. How often does an adult action film (meaning, one that isn't The Hunger Games) get recognized at any of these award shows? Right, hardly never. So this is major; let's relish it now before its peers in the best drama category, Carol or The Revenant, take it home.

Of course, there are some duds on this nominations list (basically any nomination for The Big Short). Check out the full list:
