Golden Globes: What Did We Learn Today?

The Golden Globes announced their nominations this morning where the revived and kick up serious Oscar campaigns for major films and studios.  The embrace of Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” was the most surprising as they gave it three nominations for Best Actress (Drama) for Michelle Williams, Best Supporting Actor for Christopher Plummer, and a lone director nod for Ridley Scott.

Fox Searchlight’s “The Shape of Water” led the nominations with seven, picking up every award it was expected including Supporting Actor for Richard Jenkins and Supporting Actress for Octavia Spencer.

Mary J. Blige was the big winner of the day who picked up nominations in Supporting Actress and Original Song for “Mudbound.”

Exclusions were noticed around the beat as “Dunkirk” failed to pick up any acting nominations including Mark Rylance.  Amazon Studios’ “The Big Sick” failed to pick up any nominations for Best Picture, Actor in a Comedy or Musical, and Screenplay.  “Hostiles” and “Novitiate” failed to pick up mentions for its stars Christian Bale and Melissa Leo while “Get Out” missed out on a Screenplay and Director mention.  “Last Flag Flying” was also shut out of all its eligible categories.  Annapurna Pictures’ “Detroit” and Warner Bros. “Blade Runner 2049” also failed to pick up mentions.

With that, we move on to SAG nominations tomorrow with final predictions coming out later today.
