    Oh wonderful. They nominated the same five movies for EVERYTHING. Seriously? Salmon Fishing in the Yemen? Nobody even saw that movie! And how the heck is ParaNorman not nominated for Best Animated Feature, but Hotel Transylvania is? Ya know, I used to have more respect for the Golden Globes, but sadly, it looks as though they have gone the way of the Oscars. And that is not a good thing.
