Here Are Your 2013 Golden Globes Nominations

The 2013 Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning, and as ever, it’s a tale of two genres. The drama categories are fine, I guess, filled with love for Breaking Bad, Mad Men (not for Best Drama, however), Boardwalk Empire, and Homeland, though none for Game of Thrones…but then you get to best comedy.

OBVIOUSLY comedy is subjective and the humor in a joke about masturbating until your fingers bleed, for instance, isn’t for everyone, but: *sigh* The Big Bang Theory, Episodes, Girls, Modern Family, and Smash, those are shows that best define “comedy” according to the Golden Globes. The funniest thing about that group is how unfunny they are. Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Louis C.K., and Julia Louis-Dreyfus get their love elsewhere, but SMASH?!? Even the show’s creator didn’t like Smash.

Oh wellz. At least we can pretend we’re best friends with Poehler and Fey for a night. Full nominee list below.
