Do The Golden Globes Change the Oscar Race?

The 75th Golden Globes ceremony is tonight and offers a bit of a preview of what can win at the Academy Awards. One thing to note is that we are 2 days into voting for Oscar nominations. Anyone who has already voted will obviously not be affected by tonight’s outcome, but the rest could be swayed. The Globes have separate awards for comedy and drama, doubling its chances of choosing the Best Picture Oscar winner.

Last year Moonlight was awarded Best Drama and went on to win the Oscar. Casey Affleck won the Globe for Manchester by the Sea and Emma Stone did won the Actress Globe for La La Land. They both went on to win the Oscar.

Keep in mind that Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who vote on the Globes, is a group of 90 people while the academy is made up of 7,000 plus voters. The HFPA votes using the popular vote while the Oscars use a preferential ballot for Best Picture. Both could produce separate outcomes. If anything it will tell us which films and performances have support. Especially in a year when we don’t have a clear frontrunner.

The acceptance speeches tonight, could make or break an actors Oscar chances. The Academy votes for who they like, plain and simple. When Sally Fields said “you like me, you really like me” during her acceptance speech for her Oscar win, she wasn’t being conceited. She was seriously surprised that “they” liked her. That’s what it takes to win. Give a good down to earth, honest and emotional acceptance speech at the Globes and the Academy will like you, really like you.

Jimmy Fallon to Host 2017 Golden Globes


The Television Critics Association announced today that Jimmy Fallon will be hosting the 2017 Golden Globes awards show. 

Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, said “Jimmy Fallon is an exceptionally talented and dynamic entertainer and we couldn’t be more excited that he’ll be hosting the 2017 Golden Globes. His charm, wit and incredible spontaneity will play exceedingly well both to everyone at the show as well as the millions watching at home from around the world.”
Jimmy hosted the Emmys in 2010, but this will be his first time hosting the Globes. 

The Golden Globes will take place at the Beverly Hills Hilton on January 8, 2017.  

Big Ratings for The Golden Globes

Los Angeles (AFP) – Nearly 21 million people watched the 71st annual Golden Globes on US television, its best audience for a decade, according to ratings cited Monday by industry journal Variety.

The three-hour Sunday night telecast from Beverly Hills drew 20.9 million viewers, a six percent increase from the 19.7 million who watched last year’s show, according to the Nielsen ratings agency figures.

The number is the biggest audience for the Golden Globes since 2004, when “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” — the third part of Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy — helped draw 26.8 million TV viewers to the show.

Industry watchers said it also reflected the popularity of TV comedy actresses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who co-hosted the Globes for the second time, and will do so again next year.

Before Fey and Poehler, the Globes was presented for three years in a row by edgy British comic Ricky Gervais, who was notorious for his close-to-the-bone jibes at celebrity members of the audience.

“Last night’s show worked once again because of two hosts who know how to do TV, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler,” wrote Time magazine’s TV critic James Poniewozik.

Crime caper “American Hustle” was the big winner of the night Sunday, taking three Globes in the musical/drama categories: best film, best actress for Amy Adams and best supporting actress for Jennifer Lawrence.

Harrowing historical drama “12 Years a Slave” won the coveted best drama prize, while Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto went home with the other acting prizes.

2014 Golden Globe Predictions

golden-globes-logo

The Hollywood Foreign Press is a lighthearted bunch. They love movie stars and nominate the biggest to get them to attend. They hand out expensive booze and food. It’s one big drunken celebration. Completely opposite the stuffy Oscar ceremony. This is why I am predicting a complete shut out of 12 YEARS A SLAVE.  The one thing that can really drag a party down is slavery. They respect the movie enough to nominate it, but they don’t want it to ruin their night. I could be completely wrong on this and I hope that I am, but here is how I think it will go:

Best Picture, Drama- Gravity

Picture, Musical-Comedy,American Hustle

Actor, Drama: Robert Redford,All is Lost (they love them big movie stars)

Actor, Comedy: Leonardo DiCaprio,The Wolf of Wall Street

Best Actress, Drama: Cate Blanchett,Blue Jasmine

Best Actress Comedy/Musical:Meryl Streep, August: Osage County

Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club

Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle

Director: Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity

Screenplay: American Hustle

Animate Feature: Frozen

Foreign Film: Blue is the Warmest Colour

Score: Gravity

Best Song: Let it Go
