“Lincoln,” “Argo” and “Django Unchained” lead the Golden Globes nominees

There aren’t many surprises on the list of this year’s Golden Globes nominees. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association played it pretty safe, opting for critical darlings like “Lincoln,” “Life of Pi,” “Les Miserables” and “Zero Dark Thirty” instead of fan favorites like “The Avengers,” “Looper” and “The Dark Knight Rises.” At least “Argo” and “Django Unchained” got five nods apiece, as one was and the other is slated to be some of the most entertaining movies of the year.

It’s interesting that “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is nowhere to be seen on this list, which doesn’t bode well for its release tomorrow. During their time, “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy got plenty of love from awards shows, but early reviews have said that “The Hobbit” isn’t looking like it’s going to be quite as great as its older brother.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t express excitement about “Silver Linings Playbook” and “The Sessions” getting lots of love. Also, Jack Black was recognized for his work in “Bernie” and “Moonrise Kingdom” got a nod for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical. Also, Adele got “Skyfall” its one nomination (for Best Song), and if Taylor Swift wins over here we’re going to boycott the Globes forever.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
