Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association throw out their award nominations for film and television excellence. Each year there is a similar reaction to one or many of the nominations for the awards, the Golden Globes, and here again we have a couple of bizarre choices.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen was not a bad film, but certainly not one of the best of the year. Seeing it rub shoulders with the likes of Django Unchained, which has a couple of interesting nominations including Best Motion Picture – Drama, and Ben Affleck’s Argo seems a little off.

However it’s great to see John Hawkes picking up recognition for his work in The Sessions, Rachel Weisz’s emotionally turbulent turn in The Deep Blue Sea is worthy of a look and gets a nomination.

The awards are often billed as pointers for the Oscars later next year and usually by those running the show. »
