    So happy for Joanne Froggatt.

  2. Pearl says:

    So, Matt must be happy with Fargo’s tão winnings, and mas for the snub of uzo aduba

  3. Pearl says:

    Gina Rodrigues wins. I can’t believe. CW finally won something O.O

  4. Pearl says:

    But still didn’t Win in the series department. Well, you take what you can get.

  5. CJ says:

    Not gonna lie, I burst into (happy) tears seeing Gina Rodriguez win. It’s gratifying to see a woman so deserving be recognized, despite so many odds stacked against her. Such a beautiful thing.

  6. nikki says:

    Monlogue was great . They always kill it the Cosby jokes were hilarious!!!#

  7. RMR says:

    Great for Gina and so deserving! Felicidades chica!

  8. abz says:

    Congratulations to Matt Bomer!! So well deserved. I’m really enjoying watching his career grow and flourish. So nice to see an actor like him so talented and humble and not surrounded by negative tabloids and drama.

  9. Paolo says:

    The Beverly Hilton Hotel doesn’t have air conditioning? They are all sweaty… but it’s maybe alcohol.

  10. greysfan says:

    I’m so so happy for Joanne Froggatt. She deserves it so much!

  11. norman says:

    Could do without the Korean charicatrure

  12. ggny says:

    Wow i didnt think she would win it. Congrats Gina

  13. Pearl says:

    Simeone cuts this awful sketch of Kristen wigg?

  14. anai says:

    Really wanted emma stone to win. She did really good in birdman.

    • J.B. says:

      It’s hard for an actor or actress who is primarily known for their comedic roles to breakthrough into drama. However, I think her time will come.

  15. For numerous distinct designers and fashioners, 3D Printing utilities furnish access to engineering that the
    hobbyists themselves might never bear. In the
    next part of this series we’ll go over the basics of prepping
    a file for printing. The fact that materials used
    in earlier times for rapid prototyping have been often toxic and gave off
    fumes that will make everyone in the vicinity slightly light headed meant
    that designers and engineers were willing to allow rapid prototyping solutions specialists to disappear for a separate workroom far away and revisit when a model had been finished.

  16. ggny says:

    So has Amazon now won more awards then Netflix?

  17. Pearl says:

    My reaction to The Affair winning:
    WHAAAT??!?!?!
    Why are people só attracted to cheating???

    • J.B. says:

      It didn’t win because people are “so attracted to cheating”. That is just one aspect of the show. It won because of it’s unique way of storytelling, acting, writing and directing. I don’t know if you’ve seen more than one episode, if any, but had you done that you might have seen those things. I get it may not be your type of show, which is fine because we all have different tastes, but reducing the show’s win to people be “so attracted to cheating” is ignorant and rude.

    • sam says:

      That’s like saying “My reaction to Breaking Bad winning: WHAAAT??!?!?! Why are people so attracted to drug dealing???” You must admit there is something wrong with that line of thought.

    • Mary says:

      Eh, because the show itself is good?

    • Julie says:

      I made a similar reply in another thread. The Affair is a fantastic show that, in no way, glorifies cheating. It shows the absolute ugliness of infidelity and what it can do to the cheaters, the spouses and everyone around them. There’s not one bad actor on the show (though I have to admit, to me, Joshua Jackson can do no wrong), and Ruth Wilson was 100% deserving of the win. And The Affair was 100% deserving as well. Awesome show. If you haven’t watched, I would encourage you to. The way it’s written and the way it shows both the his and her “versions” of what happened are what made it must see TV right after Homeland on Sunday nights.

  18. abz says:

    How on earth did The Good Wife not win Best Drama especially after that phenomenal fifth season? What are these people smoking?

  19. 777 says:

    What does the good wife has to do to win an award?!

  20. Atiya Spence says:

    I love that the CW has won an Golden Globe. I wish that both Jane and the Originals win something too. Congrats to CW.

    • cerreno says:

      The Originals? Maybe at the Razzies. Jane the virgin won because Gina is amazing.

      • J.B. says:

        Why do you have to knock another show down? Can’t you just be happy and gracious somebody you like won an award. Honestly in the end it doesn’t say all that much. Many actors, actresses and shows never win awards they should have, let alone get nominated.

  21. norman says:

    CONGRATULATIONS GEORGE… YOU ARE A GOOOOOD MAN. WELL SPOKEN SPEECH.

  22. Pearl says:

    WHAT THE HELL??????
    HOW COME NEITHER JULIANNA OR VIOLA WON????
    C’MON!!!!
    THATS BULL!!
    DAMN!!!

  23. 777 says:

    What with all the love for the affair?!

  24. kn1231 says:

    Wow, so many snubs. I can’t watch this crap anymore.

  25. Netty says:

    So happy for Matt Bomer, J K Simmons and Kevin Spacey. I’m glad that The Good Wife did not win best drama, all the other nominees in the drama series categ. are so much better than TGW, BUT when will Game of Thrones win, honestly!

  26. Babybop says:

    Someone please explain to me how Transparent is a comedy so I can stop being so angry that it won over Mindy, B99, or Parks (none of which were even nominated despite being hilarious).

    • B says:

      agreed, I don’t consider OITNB a comedy but its more comedic than this, transparent is much more satirical. They should just go ahead and make a ‘dramedy’ category so actual comedies can get nominated

      • Babybop says:

        Yes please. A dramedy category for GG AND the Emmys.

      • Mika02 says:

        Exactly your going to get these Blurred lines when you basically have Dramatic shows that use Comedy as a device hence “Dramedy” should be a category and we can place OITNB, Transparent, Jane the Virgin and Castle.

  27. Ron says:

    Look, I (generally) like Ruth Wilson. And it’s not that The Affair is a *bad* show, per se. BUT, how in the heck did she beat out Julianna and Viola?!?! Having seen all of the shows that was nominated in that category, I’m aware of the best leading female performances. And it really should’ve been either Julianna or Viola. There really was no question. I’m honestly not sure what HFPA wants Viola to do before they finally award her a GG. Are they watching different performances of hers than I am? It’s one thing to award someone or a show/film that may not get recognized elsewhere (which HFPA likes to do, and sometimes does well–see Gina Rodriguez), but it’s another thing to just incite shock for shock’s sake.

    • J.B. says:

      What!? What proof do have that this is how the HFPA chose the winners? These awards are subjective as is all art. There is no way to “prove” who deserves what. The majority of the voters obviously thought she should win. Plain and simple. The best actress category is usually the toughest because of how many strong performances are out there. Each one of them could have walked away with the award and deservedly so.

    • jenna says:

      aren’t the nominations based on what international journalists are writing about in their home countries? While shows like good wife and HTGAWM may be popular in america I can see why they wouldn’t be talked about internationally. Likewise shows with more provocative themes/subject matter (JTV, the affair, transparent) are more likely to be written about

    • Tim says:

      I’ve only seen Ruth Wilson’s performance but she has one scene that is so incredible that there is no way the other actresses could come close—even though they are both talented. If you watch the show, you know what scene I’m talking about.

  28. norman says:

    Michael Keaton congratulations a well deserved award, you were so so fabulous in the role of Birdman. Would like to see again in films without having to wait years.

  29. GuessWhat says:

    TV is just not the same nowadays. So many shows spread out over all these cable networks and streaming services. And they may be good shows, but most of the topics don’t interest me. I saw only ONE winner of all the TV awards! Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series, Miniseries or TV Movie: Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart.

  30. How many GG’s do the HFPA now owe Don Cheadle? At least 2, including tonight; they just went for the show that has the most provocative subject matter and nothing more. Tambor didn’t deserve the win, bottom line.

    Piss-poor choices in the movie categories, too; in what universe does The Theory of Everything beat INTERSTELLAR in Original Score? Heck, Yellow Flicker Beat wasn’t even nominated for Song. Indie Spirits redux, and it’s like BSG. All this has happened before, and all of this will happen again. Guilds and awards partying like it’s 2011. Movies that have the least boxoffice being kowtowed to, again.

  31. VSims says:

    Viola Davis snubbed! Hollywood wake up…she’s one of the best actresses in Hollywood (period).

  32. ninamags says:

    I was more excited for the CW winning than for Gina.

    It truly is fantastic for our little network.

  33. Bear75 says:

    Eddie Redmaybe? lol

  34. Hodan says:

    I am happy Gina won for JTV and The CW network but sad Viola Davis did not win.

  35. J.B. says:

    Gina’s win tonight for her role in JTV and for The CW reminds me of the time Kerry Russell won for her role in Felicity for The WB.

    • KC says:

      LOL – so true! It’s ridiculous

      • J.B. says:

        I didn’t mean that in a bad way LOL
        Probably should have been clearer in that comment. I don’t think either win is ridiculous. Kerri Russell has gone on to do a lot of good work. I don’t know if the same will be true for Gina but she’ll be in the spotlight now.

  36. J.B. says:

    I am amazed by the sheer stupidity of the people complaining about The Good Wife not winning awards. Seriously? Ok let me help you out:
    Julianna Margulies: 3 Emmys, 1 GG, 1 SAG, 1 TCAA, 1 PCA, CCTA for her role.
    Archie Panjabi: 1 Emmy and 1 NAACP Image Award for her role.
    Martha Plimpton & Carrie Preston both won an Emmy for their recurring characters.
    Josh Charles: 1 PCA
    TGW: 1 CCTA, 1 TCAA, 1 PCA, 1 Peabody,
    4 Casting Society of America Awards, and 1 Humanitas Awards.
    The show has about 121 nominations for various awards! TGW getting snubbed? Really?

  37. puck says:

    Wow this is crazy! I have not seen any of the shows or movies that won, and I have no desire to.

    • J.B. says:

      So…is that it?

    • Sam says:

      Why do people like you feel you have state it. You don’t care about quality stick with your murder mystery of the week but please don’t complain your shows don’t get nominated for anything. Also it’s the 21st century their are more than just 4 channels and the major networks aren’t able to compete with cable

  38. M says:

    I am so happy that Maggie Gyllenhaal won for The Honourable Woman. Her performance was phenomenal. Just breath taking. Everyone should see it.

  39. KC says:

    These awards are beginning to be a total joke. Most everything that won is on a cable network. Whatever – I haven’t seen or care to see any of them. Also – Jane the Virgin actress won? What the heck – that show has been on for what – 10 mins? Unbelieveable!!!!

    • Sam says:

      Sorry you’re old and out of touch nobody but only old people watch only broadcast tv so thanks for revealing you’re old and out of touch

  40. Joey Padron says:

    happy Matt, Fargo, and Jeffrey won.

  41. Erin2 says:

    So The Affair is better than The Good Wife???

  42. ewgynyu says:

    Fargo – incredibly boring show just like Transparent, so not deserved awards ! The Affair – boring with the ugliest lead actor and actress ever !!! Gina is cute but her show is more ridiculous then funny but is funnier then other nominees in the category which are dramas actually ! Can’t believe they didn’t award Viola Davis. They like new shows so much, I don;t know why but it’s pointless, Julianna Margulies is amazing and she deserves the award too , not that ugly Ruth :X !!! Pure Julia Luis-Dreyfus 3 EMMYs and 0 Golden Globes for Veep, they really don’t like her. I am so pissed that Jim Parsons was snubbed and The Big Bang Theory too. This awards are so sucks !!!

  43. Sam says:

    Why do some people on here refuse to watch anything outside of the major nets and than complain none of their shows get nominated. Get with the times cable is where quality,groundbreaking shows are going. Broadcast networks is where safe shows made for retirees. It’s like people on here are proud to be ignorant and sheltered

    • ninamags says:

      And maybe some people cannot afford cable or to subscribe to any of those online “networks”. What a snob you are.

      • Sam says:

        Netflix is 7.99 a month. Tons of acclaimed shows on their;. HBO is about to offer a standalone streaming service. Both of those together would be cheaper than cable. I tell you boomers know almost nothing about modern technology

  44. Laura Markl says:

    The only award catorgory that I care about is animated. Do not watch any of the TV Shows and have not seen any of the movies that were nominated.

  45. KevyB says:

    I can live with most of this, except for them giving the Animated trophy to the WORST nominee! Not that Dragon 2 was awful, but it wasn’t better than The Lego Movie, The Boxtrolls, Big Hero 6 or The Book of Life.

    I am probably happiest about The Good Wife NOT winning. Yeah, that’s kind of mean but that political crap has been unwatchable this season. And I’m still not over the whole Julianna Margulies’ ALLEGED mistreatment of Archie Panjabi or the shade she threw at the Emmys.

  46. D.J. says:

    Cant believe Viola or Julianna didn’t win.
    I’ve seen The Affair and Ruth is good but she isn’t on the same level as the other nominees.
    The only thing about The Affair for me is Maura Tierney wish she was nominated cause she’s so so good.
