The BAFTA nominees were announced this morning. I actually watched the announcement of the categories live, but was not in a place to write up my thoughts at the time. So I’ve been sitting on this for almost a day until I could write this up.
BAFTA’s a big deal. This can usually tell you which movies aren’t as liked as you’d think, and which movies have sneaky support. The winners are generally more important than that nominees, but I always like seeing which way BAFTA goes.

So the Golden Globes were last night. Sometimes I live blog them. This is not one of those times. I just didn’t have the energy or the desire (or the sobriety) to do it.

But yeah. The first piece of our Oscar puzzle is now in place. Two more big ones coming on Thursday with DGA and BFCA. But until then, I really only have one question — why do the Globes keep putting that microphone back into the ground during commercials only to raise it back up like, a minute later? (more…)
