The 2018 Golden Globe Nominations Are Out, And I’m Cackling Over Christopher Plummer Getting A Nom After Replacing Kevin Spacey 

December 11, 2017 / Posted by:

At the unholy hour of the dead this morning, Sharon Stone, Alfre Woodward, Kristen Bell and Garrett Hedlund announced who will be getting plastered on champagne on January 7, 2018 at the Golden Globes while trying to adjust to the weird feeling of not hearing anyone say, “and thank you to Harvey Weinstein,” at an awards show.

While many are screaming over their favorites getting snubbed, I’m laughing into my Folgers over Christopher Plummer getting nominated for the role that was Kevin Spacey’s until his career got buried with allegations that he’s regularly given boys and men testicular cancer checks without permission. “Hi, bitch, I’m going to take your role and your Golden Globe nom. Cry into your boy groping hands!” – Christopher Plummer in that old pic, obviously.

All The Money In The World got a total of 3 nominations, including a Best Supporting Role in a Motion Picture nom for Christopher Plummer for playing J. Paul Getty, a Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama nom for Michelle Williams and a Best Director nom for Ridley Scott. Christopher Plummer apparently just finished his reshoots, and Ridley Scott is reportedly still freebasing No-Doz so he can spend every hour of the day reworking the movie. It’s supposed to come out on Christmas Day (3 days after it’s previously scheduled release date). So besides Ridley and the editing people, who else saw Christopher’s performance?! Christopher Plummer is so fucking good that he can get a Golden Globe nomination for a performance that many voters probably didn’t see and had to imagine in their minds. Even Meryl Streep is bowing down. (Or maybe Ridley Scott really did freebase all the No-Doz and got his movie done in time for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to see it.)

As for the rest of the movie nominations, The Shape Of Water got the most nominations with 7. The Big Sick got completely shut out. So did Greta Gerwig (for directing Lady Bird), Jordan Peele (for directing and writing Get Out) and Allison Janney’s wig (for the riveting performance it gives in I, Tonya. Allison Janney herself was nominated, though). The biggest question mark is Ansel Elgort’s nomination and The Greatest Showman getting more nominations than Get Out. And St. Angie Jolie’s award season hustling paid off, because she got a foreign film nomination for First They Killed My Father. 

On the TV side, Big Little Lies got the most nominations with six. Veep, which usually doesn’t get that much slobbery love from the Golden Globes, didn’t get any nominations. Not even one for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but I’m sure she’ll soothe that feeling of cold rejection by cuddling with her ten million Emmy awards. And the worst snub of all was Megan Mullally not getting nominated for the Will & Grace revival. May all of those Golden Globe voters never be able to get a buzz from a martini again for snubbing the martini-guzzling diamond of Will & Grace.

Below are all of the nominations, and rest your eyeballs. Because Jessica Biel was nominated, so they’re going to work overtime on the night of January 7 from rolling so much while watching Justin Timberlake suck up all the attention on the red carpet.
