71st Golden Globe Awards: Nominations and Predictions:

2014-golden-globe-nominations-announced

Hi all, below you’ll find the full list of nominations for the 71st Golden Globe Awards, which will be on this Sunday, January 12, 2014. I didn’t include the nominees for Television, seeing as I don’t watch enough shows to warrant a meaningful opinion. Although, I do love some of the shows that were fortunate enough to garner a nomination. You’ll find my prediction for each category written beside the corresponding film, actor, composer, director. Keep in mind that my predictions are merely guesses based on the film and the people picking the winners, not on my personal preference. Be sure to let me know your predictions in the comment section below!

Fine, you caught me, I did mix in a little bit of my bias into the predictions. That being said, if I had my way, “The Wolf of Wall Street” would be taking home its fair share of Globes. I feel however, that it won’t get the respect and recognition it deserves sadly, that goes for the Oscars as well. I still carry hope thought, you never know…

  1. I’m watching Prisoners right now and I think Hugh Jackman should win something…

  2. Cool post. I got my predictions post scheduled for Saturday. We don’t seem to agree on many.

  3. Still haven’t seen Her. Aargh. But otherwise I think your predictions very sensible. My guess is Blanchett wins the actress award, but Dench clearly has a very good shot, too.

    • You really need to see “Her.” I tried to be sensible and take into account who’s picking the winners. Obviously, if I had my way, the results would be very different…

      • Obviously. I’d even have some different nominees. 😉

        As to Her: I know. It hasn’t hit a single theater around me yet, not even the downtown area art house theaters. Hence, my argh.

  4. I’m guessing that either 12 Years A Slave or Gravity are going to sweep. I hope Inside Llewyn Davis wins many awards though, especially since it received absolutely nothing from the guilds.

    • It seems like the winners are pretty predictable this year. Although, I did empathize with you. I hope Inside Llewyn Davis takes a few, it’s my second favourite film of the year, The Wolf of Wall Street being number one. Hope Leo and company take a few home as well.

  5. I’m going to see ‘Her’ this weekend and am excited about it. However, I’m going to bet ‘Wolf on Wall Street’ will win best comedy/musical. Also, I’m rooting for Blanchett for ‘Jasmine’ and I think Matthew M. will win for his role in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.

    • “Her” is amazing, I hope you enjoy it! I do hope “Wolf of Wall Street” wins, but I don’t think critics and the academy are too pleased with it. It’s my favourite film of the year, but I don’t think it will be recognized as such. No doubt McConaughey wins for DBC and I’ve yet to see “Blue Jasmine.”

  6. I really hope Lawrence doesn’t win. I mean I’m not a big fan of Lupita in 12YaS but Lawrence has no business being nominated in the first place.

    • I didn’t mind Lawrence’s performance, but I agree with you, I don’t believe it’s award-worthy. Sadly however, that seems to be the way the tide is rolling. I picked who I think is going to win more than who I want to win. Lupita really didn’t impress me, well, not as much as she did everyone else it seems. Out of those nominated, I’d probably pick Julia Roberts, although Osage County wasn’t as strong structurally, the performances are still top notch.

    • What an amazing site you have :). I’ll be stopping by as much as I can!

  7. I think 12 Years A Slave fits the mould for Best Film. Not sure if it’ll get the Oscar so we’ll wait and see. Loved Captain Phillips though – that was much, much better than I ever thought it could be. A thriller with one of the most devastating finales.

  8. Seven correct! – congratulations!

    • Lol, thanks Charlie! I got most of the major ones correct, and had I picked with my heart, would have selected Leo for best actor, just thought with all the negativity surrounding the film, he wouldn’t have been chosen. Oh well, still super proud for him :). 50% isn’t bad!
