GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS

2012-Golden-Globe-Awards-logo

The Golden Globes are the last major precursor awards before Oscar ballots are due. The Golden Globes hate being tied to The Academy Awards, but they will always be a part of helping movies win Oscars. They are much more open-minded then the old white guys at The Academy and many including myself think that The Hollywood Foreign Press is more of a representation of the average movie goer. Unfortunately BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, one of my favorites of the year was completely shut out. I really hope that it can get a few Oscar noms. THE MASTER which has been fading of late received 3 acting nominations, but was shut out of Directing and Best Picture- Drama.
