The 72nd Golden Globe Awards Nominations were just announced. "Boyhood", "Birdman", "The Imitation Game" etc reaped the most nods. In the drama section, "Gone Girl" was nominated for director, screenplay, lead actress, score... but no best picture. "Selma" had a surprising presence with nominations for picture, lead actor and director while "Unbroken" was completely shut out, a film I thought would be HFPA's IT film. Filling in that spot was "Foxcatcher". Jennifer Aniston gets nominated for "Cake" again, is she the 5th Oscar spot we were not sure about?
In the comedy/musical category, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" got nominated for picture, lead actor, director and screenplay, which is just superb. While "Inherent Vice" missed out on the main nod, its actor Joaquin Phoenix was nominated. "St. Vincent" was shown some love over it while British film "Pride" as predicted got nominated too. Of course "Birdman" ruled with nominations for picture, screenplay, director, original score, lead actor, supporting actor and supporting actress. Some surprises too with Hellen Mirren and Quvenzhane Wallis. Happy to see Julianne Moore and Jessica Chastain in the mix. I predicted "Interstellar" would get a single nod for its score and that happened. Now excuse my rambling and please check out the full list below:
