Nothing new here, friends… The Golden Globes don’t have technical categories like the Oscars do, so we have to go on the strength of actors and plot — something which SF, stereotypically, isn’t known for.


“Gladiator” racked up lots of nominations, but it’s not exactly genre in the strictest sense. Ditto for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” Sadly, the closest to a genuine SF/Fantasy nod there is, is Jim Carrey for “The Grinch.” That, and the always-lovely Jessica Alba for Dark Angel (Best Actress, Drama nomination).
