SF (Mostly) Stiffed In 2001 Golden Globes

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).

    Oh yeah… the list.
    Normally, I’d just go back and edit the article itself to provide linkage to this list of Golden Globe nominees, but I’m desperately trying to encourage people to comment here. Agree, disagree, gripe, complain, yell out `First Post!’ when appropriate, whatever, just USE the damn thing. I spent a good half-hour developing the comment system… :-)
