You Can All Rest Easy: Wonder Woman is Good

To say the Wonder Woman movie comes with a fair amount of baggage may be the biggest understatement in superhero film history. She’s easily among the top five most [...]

Go ahead and shop Christmas gifts for your loved ones these next couple of weeks, I’m going to catch up on this year’s best films. The nominations for the 71st Annual Golden Globes were announced earlier today, causing some mixed reception, as always, as this year’s exciting awards season kicks in.

Chiwetel Ejiofor — Variety

Walking away with the most nominations today were “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle,” the former being claimed as the year’s best film and a sure bet for a Best Picture Oscar. “American Hustle,” David O. Russell’s (“Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Fighter”) newest crime/drama film, has received some mixed receptions but has already been awarded several Best Film accolades from the New York Film Critics Circle, Phoenix Film Critics Society, and the American Film Institute.

Other films that were runner-ups in the nominations were “Nebraska,” “Captain Phillips,” and “Gravity,” another top film of the year. Coming up after that are “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “Philomena,” and “Her.”

Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Wolf of Wall Street”

While the Golden Globes also honor the best of television, its biggest highlights are the films they award, as they are sure to follow successfully throughout awards season. Out of the nominees, “Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” continue their long journey to the Oscars, as they have been expected to since their releases in September. However, come later this month, other highly anticipated films might give them a run for their money, including Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the Coen Brother’s “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and “American Hustle.” Leonardo DiCaprio scored a lead actor nom for his role in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” while supporting actor Jonah Hill was cut out. The Weinstein Co.’s ensemble film “August: Osage County” scored acting noms for lead Meryl Streep and supporting actress Julia Roberts, but no love for best comedy, director, or writing.

Jared Leto, “Dallas Buyers Club”

Some surprising exclusions this year were the indie Sundance hit “Fruitvale Station,” and Lee Daniels’ crowd pleaser “The Butler,” while “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Saving Mr. Banks” were only nominated in two categories apiece, with Jared Leto earning a much deserved nomination as an HIV-infected prostitute in “Dallas Buyers Club.”

Some of the interesting surprise nominations this year were Greta Gerwig earning her first Golden Globe nomination as a young New York City dancer in the indie comedy “Frances Ha,” Joaquin Phoenix for his role in Spike Jonze’s new film “Her,” and Sally Hawkins scoring a supporting actress nomination for Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” while Cate Blanchett scored a lead actress for the same film.

After being left out earlier this week for the SAG nominations, Robert Redford jumped back into the race for Best Actor for his film “All Is Lost,” while Daniel Bruhl earned both a nomination at the Golden Globes and the SAG for his role in “Rush.” The film’s inclusion in the Best Picture – Drama category has also cemented it into the Oscar race.

For years, the Golden Globes has been hailed as the most exciting event in awards season, behind the Academy Awards. Winners of the Best Picture and Best Actor/Actress categories have even gone to win the Oscar in those respective categories. Few changes have been made, however: Ben Affleck won the Golden Globe for Best Director for “Argo,” but was snubbed for the nomination at the Academy Awards, making up for it, however, as a producer when the film won Best Picture at the end of the night.

The Golden Globes will be televised live on NBC on Sunday, January 12, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning as hosts (and also in 2015).
