Morgan Freeman - Jeremy Renner
Easy. Swap "The Hangover" for "A Serious Man." Basically swapping the year's worst film for the year's best!or:Julia Roberts to Zooey Deschanel. I still love Julia, but it just seems wrong to recognize the movie and its male star and not recognize its muse.
Best Screenplay It's ComplicatedtoFantastic Mr. FoxORBest Actress, ComedyJulia RobertstoZooey DeschanelORBest Actor, DramaTobey MaguiretoViggo Mortensen
Bye bye Sandra Bullock. Hello Abbie Cornish.
Trade Sandy's Musical/Comedy nom (I'm on Team Bullock, but I think The Blind Side will do for now) and give it to Beyoncé in Obsessed. Now, that is the funniest performance of the year. "I'ma wipe the floor wit yo skinny ass!"
Easy. Tobey Maguire (Brothers) for Robert Downey, Jr. (The Soloist).
i would switch abbie cornish and sandra bullock, or a serious man and the hangover, in best musical or comedy.
For Motion Pictures:Bullock, give that Best Actress (Drama) nod to Robin Wright in Pippa Lee. Why? I refuse to dignify that etc. etc.For Television:True Blood, you were not a drama this year (if you ever were) and certainly not the best anything, so give that nomination to Breaking Bad.
This is the easiest question I've ever had to answer:Julia Roberts Out, Zooey Deschanel In.How the hell Roberts managed to score yet another Golden Globe nomination for a film no one even remembers is beyond me. And yet Deschanel's film is nominated for Best Picture, and her co-star gets in for Best Actor. Now that I'm thinking about it, the same thing happened at the Indie Spirit Awards... Why is Deschanel not getting the recognition she deserves? I know that she's not going to get an Oscar nomination, but a Golden Globe and Indie Spirit should've been slam-dunks.
Easy peasy: Abbie Cornish in for Sandra Bullock in the dramatic actress category. Sandy can still have her nom for The Proposal.I like Anonymous's Freeman - Renner swap, too, although I'd argue Maguire is the one who doesn't belong in that lineup.I saw It's Complicated last night, and it was very funny at times, but that it's among the five nominees for best screenplay of the year is kind of an abomination. Have no idea where that came from.I really liked Duplicity, and I'm glad it got at least one mention this season, even if it is just being used as category filler. And who doesn't want to see Julia Roberts at an awards show? (Not that that's a good reason to nominate someone, but whatev.)I believe the filmmakers' handling of Zooey in (500) deserves more credit than her performance. I've never seen her more lovingly photographed, and she's never looked better on screen. I enjoyed her work, and her chemistry with JGL was extraordinary, but I believe it was the director and cinematographer who made her presence so memorable. She wasn't only JGL's object of obsession.
Avatar to Bright StarorJulia Roberts to Ellen Page/Michelle PfeifferTV:Thomas Jane to Jim Parsons
Sandra Bullock for Abbie Cornish, no question.It's always so depressing when your favorite movie of the year gets shafted across the board.
Whoopsadaisy. I'm taking credit for the comment signed, "Editor." I was mistakenly signed in under the wrong username, a name that's definitely not supposed to be used for leisurely blog adventures.
Bye-bye Sandy, hello Tilda Swinton.
Film:Sandra Bullock for Charlotte GainsbourgTV: Janet McTeer for Michelle ForbesThere are heaps of things I would change (mostly to accommodate the very small list of films and TV shows I loved), but those are two women I've seen that I particularly want to honour. Gainsbourg's got an actor award from Cannes on her side (which I'd personally far prefer to have over a Golden Globe), and Michelle Forbes did some of the most enjoyable and layered screen work of the year on True Blood.
Hmm, I like everyone who's been switching in Jeremy Renner, Abbie Cornish, and A Serious Man.I guess I'll throw in someone who's been terribly ignored so far this season (at least Renner can claim a few critics' prizes): Sam Rockwell in Moon. Sorry, Tobey Maguire, you were the weak link of Brothers.
Blunt for Paltrow in Two Lovers.
If we have to choose just one cut then it's Emily Blunt out for the much more deserved Abbie Cornish.
Tobey Maguire to Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Renner or Sharlto Copley.
Well it seem like I disagree with most of you cuz I actually enjoy Julia Roberts nomination...So, just one? I can't do that.I want to switch Marion Cotillard to supporting and take away one of Meryl's nomination and give them to Michelle Pfeiffer and Maya Rudolph...and how could they put together the Drama category without Tilda Swinton, Abbie Cornish, Catalina Saavedra, Maria Bello and Charlotte Gainsbourg? 5 that are far superior than the actual nominees...
Oh that's an easy one.Actress in a TV Series - DramaJanuary Jones becomes Elisabeth Moss.I can give you film, too:Actor in a Motion Picture - DramaGeorge Clooney becomes Sharlto Copley.
I want to get that drama nod from Sandra Bullock, only because her momentum and trajectory now makes an Oscar nod much too likely for my tastes. Give it to Tilda, natch.Also, take the Cecil B DeMille award from Scorsese, give it to Marsha Mason. But of course, everyone was already thinking that, too obvious.
You asked for one, but I'll give two film and 5 tv switcheroos with the bolded ones most important:Sandra Bullock for Tilda SwintonTobey Maguire for Sharlto CopleyTrue Blood for LostAnna Paquin for Elisabeth MossEntourage for How I Met Your MotherThomas Jane for Jim ParsonsJeremy Piven for Eric Stonestreet
double Meryl is ridiculousif she farted, she would get some sort of nomination for it right now "It's Complicated" has a whopping 33% on Rotten Tomatoes & hasn't even been released yet - wtfdo the people who vote even watch the films they are nominating?actually, all of the double noms irritated me, not just hersi like Meryl fine, just give her the damn Oscar & be done with itend o'rant - spoke against Meryl... i'll now take shelter from the impending wrath of punishing deitiesot: "Nine" is at 28% - yikes!
Just one??I'd love to put in Renner, but I feel he is going to get his due later in award season, so I'll agree with some others and swap Deschanel in for Roberts.
Switch the Iraqui soldiers...Tobey Maguire out - Jeremy Renner in.
Am I the only one who believes it doesn't require any thought at all?Bullock for Swinton. Perhaps Bullock was better than Blunt but if Swinton got Bullock's spot, that would hurt Bullock's Oscar chances whereas Blunt has none so it wouldn't make a difference.PS: Nathaniel, Chicago critics nominated Cornish. Interesting choices overall except the love for Away We Go. Why hasn't it gone away already?
one of meryl's for michelle.
Bullock for Ronan.
The CFCA awards are interesting because we get to see a 5-wide field of nominees in each category. So names like Cornish, Renner, Jonze, Capaldi and McKay get to crop up and it looks like the folks in Chicago are a lot more diverse than their coastal counterparts. But who's to say that Abbie Cornish wouldn't have made the LAFCA or NYFCC top five, if they'd published theirs? [Unless I'm mistaken and you are able to see the full nominees for all the critics groups somewhere online]
I'm taking away Emily Blunt's Best Actress nomination and giving it to ... well, anyone else. ANYONE.Okay, if I must pick, I'll give it to Abbie Cornish -- because if they wanted to nominate a bright young thing in a corset and a British accent, who in their right minds would pick Blunt between the two?Otherwise, I'll do some more complicated shuffling across the categories and give Blunt's nod to Rupert Friend in Supporting Actor -- because he handily steals all their scenes in The Young Victoria.
Julia Roberts was great in "Dupicity"! She deserved her nomination. Replace Tobey Maguire with Viggo Mortensen.
I'd give Eastwood's nomination to Steve McQueen, because Eastwood has been nominated far too many times for far too mediocre films, and McQueen directed a better film his first time out then Eastwood's ever done in his life.
easy. remove Sandra Bullock and just give the award to Michelle Pfeiffer for Cheri. that last shot before the credits is worth it on its own.
I would take out Eastwood for Best Director and put in Haneke for The White Ribbon.
Take out It's Complicated for Screenplay (even though I haven't seen it yet) and put in Where the Wild Things Are.And while we're at it, take out Maguire and toss in Mortensen.
Melanie Laurent needed to get in. They obviously loved IB and she was the second best part of the movie. The restaurant scene between her and Waltz. Oh. My. God. Tense.So if we put her in actress, kick out Blunt or Bullock and if we put her in supporting, kick out Farmiga?
Remove Meryl for It's Complicated (split votes suck) and put in...Anna Chlumsky? I haven't been good with my comedies. Sorry guys.I agree with everyone else taking out Freeman and Bullock and putting in Renner and Cornish
give to Abbie Cornish take from Sandra Bullock
Trade out It's Complicated for In the Loop.
Is Sandra Bullock this years jim carrey,she is gonna win drama actress over mulligan the 2 nom say it,he won in 98 but did not get a nom a bit like steve martin in all of me 1984..
This is beyond easy. Best Actress nominees, say goodbye to Sandra Bullock and hello to Tilda Swinton.
Tobey Maguire out, Joaquin Phoenix in for "Two Lovers."I'd be tempted to make more changes, but I the late releases mostly haven't reached Montréal yet.
Where the hell do I begin?Switch any of the Musical/Comedy Actresses for Michelle Pfeiffer in Cheri, although I'm most miffed about Bullock and Streep a little]Original Score: No Desplat? Seriously?The Hangover for Cheri. Simple.Emily Blunt?!!!! Did they even see that movie. Emily was fine, but nowhere worthy of top 5, or ten. Crap. Absolute crap. Who the hell liked Blunt that much?
But come to think of it, the other one I'd really love to switch is The Hangover to Whip It.
Sandra Bullock for Abbie Cornish
Stanley Tucci for Simon Pegg + (I Think) Robert Downey, Jr. for Peter Capaldi. In regards to the supporting actor switch, Tucci hasn't appeared in a single widely respected item, while Pegg has at least three to his name. For me, at least, his Scotty was the best part of Star Trek. For the second switch RDJ seems to be playing a generic "arrogant but lovable" action-comedy hero type. Capaldi is playing a vain, sarcastic, profane, beastly spin doctor. Plus, he was phenomenal in Local Hero.
people stop giving Julia Roberts' nomination fo Deschanel! Give Bullock's (Proposal) nomination to her!!!
People have such a prejudice against Sandra.I wonder why no one is talking about George Clooney playing George Clooney and being a favorite in his category for that. Or even Streep being nominated for everything she does.But I guess its ok because they are "respected" actors and because Bullock made her carrer by doing rom-com.
And btw, it's so stupid to complain about her nomination with the argument "it's a film that noone remembers". Isn't actually good for a change that a movie is nominated which doesn't have a DECEMBER release date?!? Isn't it GOOD that the HFPA thinks a little bit back at least here and isn't ONLY influenced by the things they've just seen?!
*Best Actress (Drama) - Emily Blunt ("The Young Victoria") for Tilda Swinton ("Julia")*Best Actress (Comedy/Musical) - One of Meryl's for Michelle Pfeiffer ("Cheri")Two great performances released earlier this year and I hope will get recognized sometime this awards-season.
(And I'm talking about Roberts.)
Julia Roberts out, Zooey Deschanel in.
Sandra Bullock for Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist (WHY is nobody talking about her performance anymore? Ugh, Hollywood is so predictable and boring)
What would An Education have qualified as? Comedy or Drama?
Kick Sandra Bullock out for The Proposal and get Amy Adams for Julie & Julia in.And that's just on. I would also like Abbie Cornish to get in (Instead of who? Well, take a wild guess SaBu!)
FilmTobey Maguire to Viggo Mortensen.Sandra Bullock to Abbie Cornish.TVJeremy Piven to Tom Courtenay.Steve Carrell to Jim Parsons.
Marco -- actresses who make it in romcoms always have this trouble but i'm convinced less people would be pissed if BULLOCK if people weren't overdoing it so much. two nominations is *really* silly.i so wish they would make that illegal at the Globes like they do at the Oscars. It just seems so... stingy.
Zooey Deschanel is just fine to watch, but she's become pretty much a one trick pony. Quirky-indie-girl is cute but it's not really acting after the tenth time.
"Quirky indie-girl ... not really acting after the tenth time" - funny. Like it. But Zooey was sooo cute!Good call Hayden - Paltrow in. For that matter, could we get Joaquin in too? And The Soloist guys?
Matt Damon - Christian McKay
ScreenplayANYTHING out! Probably It's Complicated.500 Days of Summer in.
Anything in the music category for a score by Alexandre Desplat
Julia Roberts - Zooey Deschanel
Seconded:"Easy. Swap "The Hangover" for "A Serious Man." Basically swapping the year's worst film for the year's best!"
I hate how the Golden Globes either goes with the same ol' favorites (Meryl Streep) or nominates movies that either haven't come out (Nine, SH, It's Complicated) or nobody liked (The Proposal--or, at least, Sandra Bullock).If Sandra Bullock gets an Oscar nomination and Abbie Cornish doesn't, I'll lose my shit.Also, In The Loop for best screen play.
I add to the Julia Roberts to Zooey Deschanel vote!
Clint Eastwood for Spike JonzeMatt Damon for Alec BaldwinSandy #1 for Tilda SwintonSandy #2 for Maya Rudolph
Sandra Bullock - Tilda Swinton Penelope Cruz - Diane KrugerClint Eastwood - Jane Campion
Melanie Laurent in, Anna Kendrick out.Laurent's performance was one where you felt with her every second of the way, in very difficult scenes. She carried the romantic bravery of the film. Kendrick is one of the worst actresses in "Twilight", not noted for it's quality of acting (or much else). I doubt she's that great in "Up in the Air". But that's one of the ones they've seen, because of George Clooney.It seems that only actresses in 3 films can be considered for Supporting: ""Up in the Air", "Precious", and "Nine". Considering that most actresses are not leads, do we ignore almost all the actresses in the country, no matter how great they are in their supporting roles? It's so dismissive of actresses work that their work can't even be looked at - it's too hard - we can already fill the spots from a few movies.
Yes Nath. But I think people are saying this not because she got two nominations, but because she was nominated.My impression is that people are cursing her for the possible nomination just because she is well known and too commercial. They completely ignore her acting (or don't want to like her acting) and say that __insert some small movie's actress here__ was so much better than her and blablablabla Shame on her for doing rom coms. Shame.on.her. *rolls eyes*
Oh so many stuff I'd replace...BEST PICTURE - COMEDY/MUSICALIt's Complicated out, A Serious Man inBEST ACTRESS - DRAMABlunt out, Cornish inBullock out, Swinton inBEST ACTOR - DRAMATobey out, Viggo inFreeman out, Renner (Rockwell) inBEST ACTRESS - COMEDY/MUSICALMeryl's It's Complicated nomination and Bullock's The Proposal nomination exchanged with Maya Rudolph or Michelle Pfeiffer or Zooey Deschanel (I don't care which). Perhaps we can put all three and sack Marion Cotillard as well. Leave JULIA alone!BEST ACTOR - COMEDY/MUSICALDowney Jr. out for... I dunno, Seymour Hoffman for example? Krasinski? Sandler? Clive Owen? Or maybe even Brad Pitt (if the Globes can nominate Tom Cruise... then anyone can get in)BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESSMarion in, Penélope out. This way you won't lose again dear Pene...BEST SUPPORTING ACTORTucci out, Molina inHarrelson out, Mackie inBEST SCREENPLAY(500) Days of Summer in and take out that piece of thrash It's Complicated. Or An Education. Or Precious.BEST SCOREHorner out, Desplat for Fantastic Mr. Fox in (the man does 5 amazing soundtracks and is NOT nominated? oh talk about bad luck...)BEST ORIGINAL SONGCinema Italiano out, Take it All in obviously(Doesn't «The Weary Kind» seem this year's The Wrestler? I'm feeling guilty for liking it so much, 'cos i'll suffer if it doesn't get nominated for the Oscar)And yeah, I'm glad for GLEE. But what a rip-off for How I Met Your Mother. And True Blood... What about Breaking Bad instead?
Emily Blunt in Young Victoria to Abbie Cornish in 'Bright Star'.
Icdon't know how people can be taking Roberts out, when Sandra Bullock is in for the Proposal. At least Duplicity was smart, the Proposal was your typpical rom-com, and Bullock didn't do anything particularly good in it. Her character really changed (not in a good way) from the beginning to the end. So I'd take Bullock for the Proposal out and take Zooey Deschanel in.In unrelated news, Crazy Heart is 97% fresh in Rotten Tomatoes. Wow
easily Shohreh Aghadashloo instead of Emily Blunt's nomination.
"Icdon't know how people can be taking Roberts out, when Sandra Bullock is in for the Proposal. At least Duplicity was smart, the Proposal was your typpical rom-com, and Bullock didn't do anything particularly good in it."I couldn't agree more. I haven't seen The Blind Side, but I've seen enough Sandy movies in my life (rom coms and drama) and she has never ever vowed me. In some movies she was bad, in some ok, in others cute, but that's it. It has nothing to do with her doing mainly lightweight roles, she just isn't a great actress. She seems like a very nice, cool chick though but that shouldn't be the reason for getting and award for acting.
Freeman/Maguire for Renner. No doubt about that.
@ Lara / Lucky: Thank you. I've said a similar thing above. I think the Roberts nomination is actually one of the better ones. But Bullock DOUBLE?!!?
I don't know why most people are suprised about Emily Blunt's nomination, apprently they love her since I remember her breakthrough year she was a Supporting Actress nominee for "Devil Wears Prada" and won the Golden Globe for "Gideon's Daughter" in the Tv Supporting category. So I think she was kind of a easy name to remember for the Globes.That said I am gonna say for my switcheroo I would switch out Matt Damon's almost category fraud for "Invictus" for Alfred Molina in "An Education".Is it me or was this year almost the least imaginative year for the Globes?
Lucky -- that's so weird because Crazy Heart is totallly boring. We've seen it 1000s of times.
