Golden Globes, the winners (and thoughts)
I actually thought "Gravity" was going to win Best Picture. And that Steve McQueen would win Best Director. But, oh well...what do I know. I'm most happy to see Amy Adams win for "American Hustle." And her speech was absolutely incredible. And quite inspiring. I actually think she is now going to get an Oscar nomination. But to whose expense, I wonder.
I think that Leonardo DiCaprio might finally get that lead actor acting nomination for "The Wolf of Wall St." And I worry that Robert Redford will not.
The thing to remember about the Golden Globes is that the ballots are already in, and the people who vote for the Globes are not the same as the ones that vote for the Academy. Most of you know this...just a little reminder.
The two biggest surprises for me were Best Song going to U2's Ordinary Love, which actually makes a lot more sense now. I still think it is "Frozen"'s "Let it Go" to lose. And secondly "The Great Beauty" beating "Blue is the Warmest Color." Also less surprising this morning. I never managed to see "The Great Beauty," but it has been building buzz as the foreign film frontrunner ("Blue is the Warmest Color" is ineligible because of its late release date in France).
Finally, quite happy to see the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" love.
