The Golden Globe nominations for TV shows and performers are often difficult to pin down, given voters' penchant for embracing new shows and quickly dismissing old ones (all of last year's comedy winners were shown the door this time around). As a result, there were a number of surprises, and some of the contenders we were expecting to be nominated were snubbed. Below, the lists of those programs and performers who won't be in the running on Jan. 11 at the 72nd annual edition of these kudos. (Click here for the complete list of who did earn nominations.) -Break- 'Fargo' leads Golden Globe nominations for TV with five, 'True Detective' has four Not Nominated: Best Drama Series "Homeland" "How to Get Away with Murder" "The Knick" "The Leftovers" "Masters of Sex" "Outlander" Not Nominated: Best Drama Actor Steve Buscemi, "Boardwalk Empire" Jeff Dani...' »
Few mysteries perplex Hollywood like the endurance and the influence of the Golden Globes, yet year after year the less than 100 members of the secretive Hollywood Foreign Press Association dole out names and somewhere a phone rings, a text is sent and a heart glows a little brighter in the early La morning with awards-season self-confidence. Then there are those who are harshly left out in the cold — like broadcast comedy, Boardwalk Empire and American Sniper were today for the 72nd annual Globes, which will be handed out January 11 on NBC with perma-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Here are a few of the snubs. I’m updating this list so anyone we missed?
The Walking Dead – Let’s be clear, the AMC series is the most popular show on television, both cable and broadcast. The blockbuster zombie apocalypse series has beaten the mighty Sunday Night Football again and again this fall, »

This year's nominations for the Golden Globes in January have been announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Despite all the slamming the organisation and awards get in the media, they are still the most anticipated awards for film and television outside those two industry's two major ceremonies (Oscars, Emmys).
Leading the film pack this year is "Birdman" with seven nominations; followed by "The Imitation Game" and "Boyhood" with five nominations; "Gone Girl," "The Theory Of Everything, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Selma" with four nominations; and "Foxcatcher" with three.
On the TV front there's an interesting mix. The TV movie/mini-series category is up for grabs with "True Detective," "Fargo," "The Normal Heart" and the UK import "The Missing" fighting it out for honors. The drama categories boast some familiar names and shows, but three of the five shows up for Best Comedy Series are new.
Notable snubs completely shut out include "American Sniper, »

Last week I wondered just how much plot Sons Of Anarchy had left to wrap up in its final hour (or hour and a half; the episodes have gotten rather long). I mean, sure, there was business to attend to, but it was nothing huge. I’m unconvinced anyone was especially concerned about dealing with Barosky or Marks or the Irish. After seven years, the resolution we want to see is that of the characters we have known and loved for years, and in some ways the Sons Of Anarchy finale did succeed.
Jax’s death was a powerful and fitting ending for a character who finally realised that he was not a good man, that he was incapable of »
On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild announced the nominees for the 21st annual SAG Awards, honoring achievements in film and TV performances. Among the top film nominees are Birdman and Boyhood, which have been leading the pack in nearly every accolade so far. On the TV side, Modern Family and Game of Thrones ran away with the most nominations in their respective genres.
The SAG Awards are considered to be one of the major honors of the season and a strong precursor of the Academy Awards. Last year, the four SAG Award winners – for Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, and Supporting Actress – went on to take home the Oscar in their respective categories.
Check out a complete list of nominations below:

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.
In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.
The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

Nominees for the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles by Ansel Elgort and Eva Longoria. There are a number of surprises (Jennifer Aniston scored a nod!) and some snubs (no love for Selma?), but for better or worse, award season has officially kicked off. Birdman is a favorite, earning a nomination for outstanding performance by a cast as well as individual nods for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Emma Stone. The Theory of Everything and Boyhood also have a lot to celebrate. On the TV side, the crowd in Los Angeles cheered when Viola Davis's name was read for How to Get Away With Murder. Modern Family remains a big nominee, and Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are both nominated for True Detective. Take a look at the full list below, and look forward to the show, airing Jan. 25! Outstanding Performance By A Cast »

Following yesterday’s interactive poster, a new final trailer has arrived online for Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film Inherent Vice, entitled ‘Paranoia’. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too »

Birdman garnered four Screen Actors Guild nominations on December 10 for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and ensemble, while Norton and Benedict Cumberbatch earned three apiece. Fox Searchlight led the studios on six nods.
There are career-first nods for Norton — who arrived in style with an individual nomination for Fox Searchlight/New Regency’s Birdman and ensemble recognition for Birdman and Fox Searchlight’s The Grand Budapest Hotel — as well as for Jones, Keira Knightley and TV’s Uzo Aduba, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany.
Focus Features’ The Theory of Everything earned three for Redmayne, Jones and ensemble; IFC Films’ Boyhood garnered three for Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke and ensemble; and The Weinstein Company/Black Bear’s The Imitation Game earned three for Cumberbatch, Knightley and ensemble.
Cumberbatch is also in contention for his individual work in Sherlock: His Last Vow, broadcast in the Us by PBS.

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.
Here's where a new running feature comes into play:
As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

Once again, Screen Actors Guild voters have proved their loyalty to actors they’ve nominated time and again. Witness repeat nominations for SAG favorites including Steve Buscemi and “Boardwalk Empire,” Claire Danes and “Homeland,” “Nurse Jackie’s” Edie Falco and “Modern Family,” which garnered an ensemble nom and bids for Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen.
At least SAG voters acknowledged Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” (pictured), after ignoring it last time around. SAG also heaped love on Netflix’s other big show, “House of Cards,” giving it first-time noms in the drama field and in the best actress category for Robin Wright, as well as a nom for star Kevin Spacey for the second year running. Indeed, Netflix is already the big winner today.

Winners will be announced on January 25, 2015.
Here's the full list of SAG Awards nominations including TV categories:
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Benedict Cumberbatch / Alan Turing . .The Imitation Game. (The Weinstein Company)
Jake Gyllenhaal / Louis Bloom . .Nightcrawler. (Open Road Films)
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
"Modern Family" and "House of Cards" were the only shows to receive multiple individual nominations plus ensemble recognition as the Screen Actors Guild announced its 2015 award nominations on the TV side on Wednesday (December 10) morning. With a few exceptions -- "Orphan Black" star Tatiana Maslany joining the field or Uzo Aduba earning a well-earned "Orange Is The New Black" nomination -- it was a predictable slate of nominations headed by the same returning favorites, though several fresh shows popped up in key categories. "Modern Family" leads the Ensemble in a Comedy field, going against returning nominees "The Big Bang Theory," "Veep" and familiar newcomers "Orange Is the New Black," snubbed last year on the drama side, and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Three "Modern Family" leads head up the individual comedy fields. Last year's winner Ty Burrell will be going against co-star Eric Stonestreet for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. »

The nominations for the 21 annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have just been announced, with Birdman leading the way, earning all four of its possible nominations out of the five film categories. Boyhood, The Imitation Game, and The Theory of Everything followed right behind with three.
As usual, there were plenty of surprises to be had. In the supporting categories, it was a slight shock seeing Meryl Streep make the cut for Into the Woods after not having gotten very much buzz for the role thus far, but then again, awards groups have always loved Streep, so it wasn’t something that was entirely unexpected. The nominee that was completely unexpected, however, was Naomi Watts for St. Vincent, taking a spot that was thought to belong to Jessica Chastain for A Most Violent Year or perhaps Laura Dern for Wild.
Looking at the nominations in the lead categories, we find a few more somewhat unanticipated results, »

The 2015 SAG Award nominations are in, and for the most part, it’s pretty much more of the same when it comes to the television nominees with familiar names up for the same, familiar awards. A couple pleasant surprises: Tatiana Maslany earning a nomination for Orphan Black, Brooklyn Nine-Nine snagging a nom for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, and all the love for Boardwalk Empire, which, in its final season, was one of the very best shows on TV. Two major gripes, though: where is Allison Tolman’s nomination for her work in Fargo, and how does the Arrow stunt team, which is the best one working on television right now, continue to be overlooked? Check out the full list of nominees below. Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries Adrien Brody – Houdini (History) Benedict Cumberbatch – Sherlock: His Last Vow (PBS) Richard Jernkins – Olive Kitteridge… »
