    Wish to congratulate David Oyelowo, Idris Elba (twice nominated) and Uzo Aduba for their nominations for Golden Globes awards. By the way, I think AMAA should borrow a leaf from this award by also creating award slots for Best Original Song and Best Original Score. These areas have been overlooked for too long and they are important in the making of a good movie.

    Scandal didn’t make the cut? Well dammm! Best of luck to David Oyelowo, Uzo Aduba, Idris Alba, Felicity Huffman, Taraji Henson, and Viola Davis. Y’all make me PROUD for I’ll be watching ??????

    David Oyelowo’s work in Nightingale is breathtaking and flawless. He easily should win his category just by the integrity of the role and his talent. I hope he wins.
    The ubertalentedted Viola Davis… Her only rival here is Taraji P Jensen. Really Tough to pick a fave outta the two.

    If Room doesn’t win for best screenplay, Heads will roll! That’s like the best movie story I have seen this year. The kid actor who starred in the film was robbed of a best actor nomination. Acting doesn’t get better than what that Child performed.

    The hardest category would be the Best Actor for Drama slot. Well deserved nominations. Not seen The Revenant yet but I’m sure DiCaprio will deliver the goods as always. For now my faves are Fassbender and Eddie Reymayne.

    Hoping Idris Elba wins too as he did outstanding acting work in Beast of no Nation. The West african accent he adopted was flawless.

    You rock Viola! But i wonder why “Justified” and its main actor Timothy Olyphant as “Raylan Givens” were not nominated. *sad face*

    much ado about Amy Schummer’s Trainwreck, I don’t see it…
    but she’s one of the few comediennes I actually think is funny.
