Golden Globe Nominees 2016: Just the Movie Categories!

The nominees are in! Ricky Gervais is warming up his wicked tongue. The stars of Hollywood are almost certainly hitting the bottle already. Or crying in a corner. Depends if they made this list really.

I'm most pleased to see the excellent Son of Saul in the foreign film category, Inside Out in the animated movie category (obvs!) and Aaron Sorkin getting some love for the Steve Jobs screenplay.

The other big news is that George Miller is up for best director and Mad Max: Fury road has a shot at taking Best Drama Film. How cool would that be? Won't happen, but it's nice to see them get a nomination.

Also a special shout out for Alicia Vikander for getting a nomination for her performance in Ex Machina. It's just nice to see Alex Garland's film represented in the nominees in some way really. Especially after it did so well at the British Independent Film Awards recently.

Without further ado, here's the movie nominees for the Golden Globes 2016 which will be held on January 10th:
