SURPRISE! NO SURPRISES AT GOLDEN GLOBES NOMINATIONS

December 12, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its nominees for the 71st annual Golden Globes Awards early today, and yes, Robert Redford was included in the list of nominees for best dramatic actor. Indeed, unlike the Screen Actors Guild, which surprised many in the industry by excluding Redford, whose one-man tour-de-force in All Is Lost received international critical acclaim, this year’s Globes nominees were remarkable for their lack of surprises. (The best comedy-actress nomination of Greta Gerwig for Francis Ha a possible exception.) Each year film reporters generally pick over the nominees who are voted on by a group whose members often have only the loosest connections with the “foreign press.” This year was an exception. 12 Years a Slave, on every major critic’s list of best films of the year, received seven nominations in the drama categories; American Hustle received an equal number of nods in the musical/comedy categories. Joining 12 Years on the list of best picture nominees were Captain Phillips, Gravity, Philomena, and Rush. Joining Hustle on the comedy/musical list were Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska and The Wolf of Wall Street. A complete list of nominees in both the movie and TV categories can be found at http://www.goldenglobes.com. Winners are due to be announced on Jan. 12 at a ceremony in Beverly Hills hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and televised by NBC.
