Golden Globes Nominations! Yay!

December 14, 2006

golden-globe-noms.jpgOnce a year, the Hollywood Foreign Press gets together to publicly acknowledge the greatness and talent of celebrities over normal people, rank them with awards, and add unnecessary clutter to DVD cover art with said awards. This year's nominations have been announced, and the foreigners have decided Babel is the best thing, leading the pack with 7 nominations. Other nominations have gone out to Will Smith, Ben Affleck, Beyonce, Renee Zellweger, Happy Feet and The Devil Wears Prada, proving that the primary goal of the Foreign Press is to award idiots for shit.
