5 Films That Should Have Gotten Golden Globes Nominations

These movies should not have been left off the list.

1. Sorry to Bother You

"Sorry to Bother You" follows the story of Cassius Green, a telemarketer who finds himself having bitten off more than he can chew at his new job. It explores the flaws of capitalism through rather overt metaphors. It received universal critical acclaim for its exploration of morality and critique of modern day capitalism. Though it is a bit slow and it takes a pretty hard left turn about halfway through, it's worthy of being recognized as one of the years best films.

2. Boy Erased

"Boy Erased" is one of those anomalies where the lead in the film is nominated for best actor or actress but the film itself isn't nominated for best picture. Lucas Hedges has a strange history with awards, having been nominated for an Academy Award for his role in "Manchester by the Sea," but not a Golden Globe. He certainly earned his first Golden Globe nomination with this film.

3. Beautiful Boy

"Beautiful Boy" is yet another film where a lead, Timothée Chalamet, was nominated but the film itself was left out. It's a story about a father trying to cope with his son's addiction to methamphetamine. Obviously, it's a tear jerker. Critics praised it for showing an accurate portrayal of addiction. Steve Carell and the rest of the cast all did a fantastic job and are deserving of more praise than they got.

4. Isle of Dogs

This one is probably the most surprising on the list. It's surprising because it's a Wes Anderson film. It seems like every time that guy spit out some weird, new, pastel-colored, bundle of symbolism, people want to throw as many awards at it as they can. "Isle of Dogs" had a ridiculously star-studded cast, and spent years in production, as most claymation films do. It just seems like an awful lot was poured into it for it to come away with nothing this awards season.

5. Eighth Grade

"Eighth Grade" is even another film where the lead was nominated for best actress, but the film was left off the list of nominees for best picture. Elsie Fisher absolutely deserves the nomination. The performance that she gave depicting an awkward middle-schooler was extraordinary. It's a film that everyone can relate to and causes most viewers to feel and remember things that they haven't thought about in a long time. For a directorial debut, Bo Burnham blew this one out of the water.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
