      You forgot to mention Barkhad Abdi for “Captain Philips”. He’s African too……..

      • Mz Socially Awkward... December 13, 2013 at 12:02 AM

        Seriously, “Captain Philips” was the best movie I saw in 2013. The best. My eyes didn’t stray once from the movie screen once the story got going and I cannot recommend it to enough people.

        Congrats to Barkhad, man, from limo driver to Golden Globe nominee in a year… That’s like a Hollywood story in itself and I pray this marks a complete turnaround of his story so far… And congrats as well to Lupita, Idris and my very own boo!! :-) Cineworld, hurry and bring me “Long Walk to Freedom” & “Captain Philips”, I beg ohhhhh….

        • Tabitha December 13, 2013 at 11:18 AM

          You are absolutely right! Captain Phillips was an amazing movie! I knew both actors (the black guy and the Lead) would get nominations!

        • Mz Socially Awkward... December 13, 2013 at 2:02 PM

          @Tabitha, agreed! Tom Hanks has had an ahh-mazing year (as the kids say these days), he can do no wrong on screen – from “Saving Mr. Banks” to “Captain Philips”, he delivered 199%. I see an award or two coming his way early next year….
          @Cineworld, y’all know I had “Captain Philips” on the brain but really meant that you should bring me “12 years a Slave”, abi? God bless you as you do so….

    • Leah December 12, 2013 at 9:19 PM

      Fingers crossed for all three of them and Kerry Washington for ‘Scandal’. That “Lead Actor” category is really tough though, Matthew McConaughey in ‘Dallas Buyers’ Club’ was amazing. But both guys got nominated twice and I really think Chiwetel Ejiofor has a good chance of winning one. (just my opinion)

    • Editrix December 12, 2013 at 9:25 PM

      So glad the Good Wife got noms. The show has been amazing this season!

      • ngeezee December 13, 2013 at 10:41 AM

        Sooo true! this season has been super hot

    • anon December 12, 2013 at 9:50 PM

      BN you did not highlight all the nominations for Idris and Chiwetel. Chiwetel has two nominations [Movie category (12 Years A Slave) and TV category (Dancing On The Edge)]. Idris also has two nominations [Movie category (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) and TV category (Luther)]. And don’t forget Somali actor Barkhad Abdi’s nomination for Captain Phillips (Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture).

    • Gbenga December 12, 2013 at 10:16 PM

      Why are there noms for Meryl Street and Julia Roberts when Osage County isn’t even out yet

      • Mz Socially Awkward... December 13, 2013 at 12:09 AM

        Probably because the foreign press have attended the pre-release screenings…. Although I thought it was being released end of 2013? I’ll be honest though, wasn’t completely impressed by the trailer, felt like a script I’ve seen in different variations already….

      • dlapikin December 13, 2013 at 1:13 AM

        Because Hollywood feels indebted to give her something every year!

        • ILoveGenevieve December 14, 2013 at 1:53 AM

          Thank you! Hollywood is political mess.

    • Jesseswife December 13, 2013 at 2:55 AM

      Yes o!

    • Amiee December 13, 2013 at 6:38 AM

      Julianna Margulies gotta win that best actress in a series yo and if you ain’t watching Good Wife, you are sleeping on a bicycle!

    • Dont Jugde December 13, 2013 at 11:49 AM

      so here’s my 2 kobos….

      i absolutely love Scandal this season but i dont think Kerry Washington brought it for me this season, i think Mellie, Abby and Quinn were absolutely dynamite! Lets not even discuss the awesomeness of Cyrus…..

      Luther was kinda the same. so i am sitting on the fence for that one. But i think they both deserve it for the Film category.( it was pretty obvious).
      I wonder why Sandra Bullock didnt get a nom for Gravity????. I havent seen meryl streep so i will reserve my comment but she is a legend and i dont think she doesnt get any thing she doesnt deserve.
      I see the HFP have recognised new work! if you havent seen “Masters of Sex” you are really sleeping on a bicycle. Downton Abbey was exciting for me this year and the Good wife has me tied up in Knots…..cant wait for them to resume….
      So has anyone seen Bates Motel and Reign…..please share your thoughts!

      • Gbenga December 14, 2013 at 11:31 AM

        Sandra Bullock got nominated for Gravity

    • Meredith December 14, 2013 at 12:54 AM

      Chiwetel ejiofor deserves this award. Idris Elba or Alba, whatever he is called…..DOES NOT! He is rude, opinionated, a chauvinist and very arrogant. We met him during shoot in SouthAfrica and he ordered that we be sent off set simply because he was trying to concentrate. Naomie Harris was nicer on the other hand. Abeg, Chiwetel has more A-list productions than that struggling bearded actor can ever dream of having.
      Beef? Yes beef, I can’t stand idris!

    • L.A Chick December 14, 2013 at 9:18 AM

      Yessss!!! My girl Lupita is doing it!!!!

    • Gbenga December 14, 2013 at 11:34 AM

      Sandra Bullock got nominated for Gravity

    • NNENNE December 14, 2013 at 11:06 PM

      12 years a slave is lovely.
