Lily Tomlin feels too young for her parts
As if determined to avoid the “do any of you even watch TV?” reaction that inevitably accompanies the Round Up of Usual Suspects known as the Emmy nominations, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. produced a jaw-dropping list of Golden Globe nominees on Thursday.
And while it continues the long-standing tradition of Golden Globe wackiness, the list also rather bravely reflects the virtually unmeasurable nature of modern television.
Nominations for the 73rd Golden Globe Awards came pouring in this morning, and after finding out the good news several nominees took the opportunity to express their appreciation.
Find out what some of them are saying.

Maggie Smith will see you in Los Angeles

Last year, it was "Birdman" versus "Boyhood." The year before: "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity" commanded the conversation. The year before that: "Argo" and "Lincoln" battled it out.
Now that the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations have been announced, the only thing that's clear is that we're going to have to wait for this year's Oscar narrative to come into focus. There are a lot of good movies and performances this year, and critics groups and awards voters have yet to reach any kind of consensus on the best of the best.

And Taraji, Yes God! Thank you for breathing life into Cookie. Again so humbled and honored.
Countless aspiring actors would kill to be Saoirse Ronan. At just 21 years old, the actress has plenty of experience under her belt and a number of awards nominations (and wins) to show for it. Thursday morning, that list got longer with a Golden Globes nomination for her leading role in "Brooklyn" -- a role that also landed her a Screen Actors Guild Awards nomination.
How she celebrates (and apparently her secrets to getting nominated): Indian curry and gold nail polish.
'Carol' leads film nods, 3 movies tie for second place
Sylvester Stallone has waited a long time -- 39 years if you're counting -- to earn another Golden Globe nomination. In 1976, newcomer Stallone received nominations for lead actor in a motion picture drama as well as a screenplay for the original "Rocky." And he went on to receive Oscar nominations in both categories.
Other veteran actresses and actors also did well with the Golden Globes on Thursday.
Paul Dano and John Cusack both play musician Brian Wilson in "Love & Mercy," but only Dano scored a Golden Globe nomination today. So we had to ask: Is that weird?
Streaming services, cable networks among top TV picks; little to no room for broadcast
The Golden Globes have come a long way in five years. In 2010, you might recall, the nominees in the movie musical or comedy category included such enduring classics as “Burlesque,” “Red” and “The Tourist.” Now comedy nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. awards are at least respectable ("The Big Short" and "Joy") or slightly respectable (“Trainwreck” and "Spy"), and actors are (mostly) lauded for the performances for which they’re nominated.

Recent Golden Globe nominee Amy Schumer called in from New York to spill on her nod for best performance by an actress in "Trainwreck." And the comedy actress was pretty excited about her nomination: So much so that she said she might even abstain from taking her anti-depressants today.

Jane the 'speechless' virgin
Jane's abuela must have been praying nonstop: Gina Rodriguez, who plays new mom Jane Gloriana Villanueva on the CW's telenovela-style comedy "Jane the Virgin," won the Golden Globe Award for actress in a TV comedy last year and is nominated again this year.
Lady Gaga trades songs for screams in wake of Golden Globe nomination
Alicia Vikander is a double Golden Globe nominee. Her "Ex Machina" portrayal of a very human-like robot earned her a supporting actress nomination. And she's competing in the hot category of lead actress in a drama film, for playing the painter wife of artist Lile Elbe (Eddie Redmayne). Elbe was one of the first people in the world to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Watch the video above of Vikander talking about the real Gerda Wegener. And click the link below to read Vikander's interview with The Times' Amy Kaufman about "The Danish Girl" and the media's description of the actress as being "cooly remote."

Awards-season buzz for Brie Larson started right after the premiere of "Room" at September's Telluride Film Festival. Soon after, The Times' Rebecca Keegan talked with the actress about her preparation for the tough role as a longtime abduction victim.
Hulu has joined streaming content peers Amazon and Netflix by garnering its first Golden Globe nomination for the new comedy "Casual."
Check out our Q&A; with the "Casual" cast as well as Mary McNamara's review of the series, which she calls "disarmingly sincere" and "sneakily self-aware."
Other nominees in the best comedy/musical category include "Mozart in the Jungle," "Orange is the New Black," "Silicon Valley," "Transparent" and "Veep."
Golden Globe nominee "Shaun the Sheep" is up for best animated feature film along with "Anomalisa," "The Good Dinosaur," "Inside Out" and the "The Peanuts Movie."
But one thing "Shaun the Sheep" doesn't have is words. What does that even look like in a screenplay? Take a look at the dialgoue-free script now.
It's Sir-sha, like inertia, Dennis Quaid
There's always someone whose name gets butchered during award show nominations, and today the lucky winner was Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. Golden Globes presenter Dennis Quaid completely mispronounced the "Brooklyn" star's name on live television, calling her "See-sha." We'll give it to you, dude: It's not the easiest name in the world to say. But you know who's here to save the day? Ryan Gosling. Duh!
The Gos directed Ronan in his first movie, "Lost River," last year, so he got to know the 21-year-old well. He subsequently came up with this neat trick to remember the actress' name: "It's Sir-sha, like inertia!"
Alan Cumming is excited
Rachel Bloom from TV series "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" has been nominated for a Golden Globe for actress in TV musical/comedy. Might as well break out the "West Covina" tune from the pilot.
Read our review of the series which LA Times critic Mary McNamara called, "intoxicating" and "daffy."
Other nominees include Jamie Lee Curtis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gina Rodriguez and Lily Tomlin.

"The Martian" is a comedy. As is David O. Russell's upcoming movie, "Joy."
So says the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s eligibility committee, which, in a vote, decided to keep both films just where 20th Century Fox wanted them for the upcoming Golden Globes awards.
The blacklist-era biopic "Trumbo" didn't receive its wished-for comedy category placement, however. The HFPA's eligibility committee moved the film and its cast, which includes Bryan Cranston and Louis C.K., to drama.
When the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. first tabbed Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts for its Golden Globes ceremony three years ago, HFPA member H.J. Park came out and stated the obvious.
"It's a coup against the academy, who hates us," Park told The Times.
This year's return to Ricky Gervais can't be seen as a similar stroke of genius, seeing as Gervais has already hosted the show from 2010 to 2012, preceding the Fey-Poehler three-year reign.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has pivoted slightly in the last couple of years, with its choices for its annual Golden Globe Awards increasingly mirroring the critical mainstream rather than simply rewarding the biggest stars on the planet. Will that trend continue this year? Read on for our predictions.
