Oh What a Night! – 2016 Golden Globe Awards

Gervais
Ricky Gervais

Last night, Hollywood came out in droves to drink support their peers at the Golden Globe awards.  Hosted by Golden Globe winner Ricky Gervais, the night got off to an auspicious start.  Gervais promised to not pull any punches while hosting, and his monologue proved that he meant it.  Ribbing everyone from Caitlyn Jenner to Jennifer Lawrence, the monologue began to feel like Gervais didn’t care about being funny so much as seeing how many tasteless jokes he could tell.  Melissa McCarthy’s face said it all:

McCarthy - Globe face
Melissa McCarthy, we know how you feel…

Regardless, this year’s Globes kept us on the edge of our seats.  Many of the awards that were given were surprises to award forecasters and even some of the stars themselves.  The big winners of the night were The Revenant and The Martian (which apparently is a comedy?). Both films won Best Motion Picture and Best Lead Actor awards.  For all of you Leonardo DiCaprio lovers, this does not automatically mean that Leo is going to win the Oscar.  Please note: This is Leo’s third Golden Globe win.  While the Hollywood Foreign Press loves him, their voting body does not have any crossover with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  The Revenant also won Best Director for last year’s Oscar winning director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu.

Indie favorite Brie Larson won Best Lead Actress – Motion Picture Drama for her beautiful work in Room.  During her acceptance speech, she mentioned her 9 year-old costar and fellow nominee, Jacob Tremblay, stating that the award was half his.  Jennifer Lawrence continued her love affair with the Globes by winning her third Golden Globe for her performance in David O. Russell’s Joy.  Of the films Lawrence has made with Russell, Joy has been the biggest under-achiever, so it will be interesting to see if Lawrence’s name is called on Thursday morning when the Oscar nominations are announced.

Winslet

In a surprise turn, Kate Winslet won Best Supporting Actress for her work in Steve Jobs.  Winslet herself was in shock, for when her name was called, she turned to her husband, Ned Rocknroll, and quite obviously said, “Oh my God!”  She also was part of one of the best moments of the evening, at least for women/girls who saw Titanic 75,000 times: KATE AND LEO SHARED A HUG ON LIVE TV!!!!!!!!  Let me just say, Twitter exploded and Celine Dion wept.

The hug felt round the world…

The perennial underdog, Rocky Balboa, finally got his due as Sylvester Stallone won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of the Philly boxer in Creed. Very sweetly, Stallone thanked Rocky during his acceptance speech.  “Most of all, I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I’ve ever had,” he said.  After playing him in seven films, I would say you guys are BFF, Sly.

The Golden Globes that were awarded for television were some of the most surprising I have ever seen.  Please know, I found this surprising even while knowing that this voting body has given surprise awards to Keri Russell for “Felicity”, Jenna Elfman for “Dharma and Greg”, and Andy Samberg for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, to name a few.

By far, the most surprising awards were for Amazon Video’s “Mozart in the Jungle” as Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Gael García Bernal for Best Lead Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for the same show.  Even nominee Aziz Ansari had a prop book made up called Losing to Jeffrey Tambor with Dignity.

The other big surprise was that Rachel Bloom won for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for her show “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”.  Her elation was palpable, as she fist pumped her new Golden Globe in the air before leaving the stage.  Lady Gaga also surprised everyone by showing up in a dress that was not made of meat.  She also won the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her work on “American Horror Story: Hotel”.  She very humbly thanked her cast saying that their talent allowed for her to work harder, thus winning this award.

Even with all of the surprises there were several sure things in the television categories. Jon Hamm won Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama for the final season of “Mad Men”. Taraji P. Henson handed out cookies after winning the award for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama for her work on “Empire” where she plays a character named…Cookie.  The PBS version of Wolf Hall was also honored as Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Finally, I must mention the triumph of the USA series “Mr. Robot”, for if I don’t, I believe that Moviefied’s managing editor will find me and text me within an inch of my life.  “Mr. Robot” won the award for Best Television Series – Drama and Christian Slater (yes, that Christian Slater) won Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television for his work on the show.

Movie-Still Monday: The Revenant

therevenantleonardo

 

The Revenant – 2016 Golden Globe winner for Best Picture, Drama. Check back this Thursday to see if The Revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio, and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu are listed among the names of this years Oscar nominees.

Golden Globe Nominations: Surprises, Snubs, and Stats

Globes

The Hollywood Foreign Press has spoken!  Yesterday morning, the nominations for the 2016 Golden Globe Awards were announced by Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloë Grace Moretz, Dennis Quaid, Miss Golden Globe Corinne Fox, HFPA president Lorenzo Soria, and Dick Clark Productions EVP Barry Adelman.

Blanchett and Mara - Carol
Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in Carol

Leading the pack with five nominations including Best Motion Picture Drama was Carol, Todd Haynes’s period drama about a housewife and a female store clerk who find themselves undeniably attracted to each other.  Both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara scored nominations for Lead Actress in a Motion Picture Drama.  This is a departure from the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations that came out on Wednesday, where Blanchett was nominated for Lead Actress and Mara was nominated as a Supporting Actress.  The film’s producers will be pushing to have Mara in the Supporting Actress category when it comes Oscar time, as they want to avoid Blanchett and Mara splitting the vote if they are in the same category.

Similarly, Alicia Vikander received a nomination in the Lead Actress in a Motion Picture Drama category for The Danish Girl.  While she is the lead actress in the film, her performance is being pushed towards the supporting category.  However, she did receive a nomination in the Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture category for her role as an android passing for human in the sci-fi mystery, Ex Machina.  Three other actors have the distinction of getting two nominations this year: Idris Elba, Lily Tomlin, and Mark Rylance.  Elba was nominated for his role as the Commandant in the motion picture Beasts of No Nation, and for his role as the tortured police detective DCI John Luther on television’s “Luther”.  Tomlin, a Golden Globe veteran with six previous nominations, was nominated this year for playing the titular role in the motion picture Grandma, and for her role as the free-spirited recent divorcee in Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie”. Stage veteran Rylance has pretty much cemented his chances of getting an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Soviet spy Rudolf Abel in Steven Speilberg’s Bridge of Spies.  He has also been nominated for playing Thomas Cromwell in the PBS broadcast of Wolf Hall.

The Big Short, a film about four men in the finance world who predicted the housing market collapse of the mid-2000s, came away with four nominations.  The film was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and it garnered nominations for Christian Bale and Steve Carell in the Lead Actor category.

Stallone - Creed
Sylvester Stallone in Creed

One of the biggest surprises was Sylvester Stallone’s nomination for his role as Rocky Balboa in Creed. This is Stallone’s first Golden Globe nomination since 1977 when he was nominated for playing the same character in the film Rocky.  Another surprise was Mark Ruffalo’s Lead Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy nomination for the family dramedy Infinitely Polar Bear.  The general consensus this year has been that if Ruffalo is able to score an Oscar nomination, it will be for the larger and much showier role in Spotlight.

Since the Globes split the categories into Drama and Musical or Comedy, we can always count on them for a few fun nominations.  This year, I would say that goes to the inclusion of Trainwreck and Spy.  Both have been nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy category, as well as Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Amy Schumer and Melissa McCarthy, respectively.  This is definitely where you say, “It is an honor just to be nominated.”

Outlander
Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan in “Outlander”

The television nominations prove to have a few surprises, but there are plenty of old standards also represented.  Personally, I have to give a shout out to “Outlander”: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG, I’M SO EXCITED!!!!  Ok, that’s out of the way.  The Starz series was nominated for Best Television Drama Series, Best Actress in a Television Drama (Caitriona Balfe), and Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television (Tobias Menzies).  The excited fan girl aside, the nomination for Menzies is richly deserved.  Just watch the season finale and you will see exactly what I mean.

A few other surprises are Aziz Ansari’s nomination for the Netflix show “Master of None”, Lady Gaga’s nomination for “American Horror Story: Hotel”, Rachel Bloom’s nomination for the freshman series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, Rob Lowe’s nomination for the poorly received Fox comedy “The Grinder”, and the nominations for Hulu’s “Casual” and Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle” as Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Viola Davis continues on her award streak by scoring a nomination for her role as the lawyer you love to hate Annalise Keating on “How to Get Away with Murder”.  As they did at the Emmys, Davis and Taraji P. Henson, who was nominated for the showy role of Cookie on “Empire”, will battle for the Golden Globe.  Perhaps Henson will triumph this time.

The Golden Globes will be awarded on January 10, 2016.  The ceremony, which will be hosted by Ricky Gervais, will air on NBC.  For a full list of nominees go to http://www.goldenglobes.com/winners-nominees

What’s Golden and What’s Just Gilded: Golden Globe Nominations 2016

The nominations for the 73rd Golden Globe Awards were just announced this morning, and after the New York Film Critics Circle Awards and the SAG nominations yesterday morning, the Oscar race is getting clearer and clearer. This year’s Golden Globes will be hosted by a returning pariah, Ricky Gervais, in what will certainly be an equally entertaining and awkward night. Carol found more nominations in the big categories, and Mad Max: Fury Road stole nominations in both Best Motion Picture, Drama and Best Director. Rami Malek, getting the recognition he’s deserved since The Pacific, is up for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama, while Regina King is up for her work in American Crime. Also nominated for their work tonight are Eddie Redmayne and Jeffrey Tambor for their roles as transgender women in The Danish Girl and Transparent, respectively. I note these last two in particular because I long for the day that I can type transgender actresses’ names in these categories, rather than those of cisgender men. Awards season, even if we’d rather not admit it, dominates the film industry, and we all cover it. However, it is our duty to do so with a mind conscious of how the film and television industry affects not just the art itself, but the world around us. Art does not exist in a vacuum, though maybe it would be easier if it did. It both reflects, and is reflective of the social and political issues we face in our everyday lives, so consume responsibly.

Without further ado or social agendas, here are the 2016 Golden Globe nominations. The ceremony will air  January 10th at 5 PM PST, on NBC. Don’t forget to tell us your opinion in the comments or on social media!

Surprise it’s the 2016 SAG Awards Nominations

Trumbo
Brian Cranston, Helen Mirran in TRUMBO

Welcome back, my award season junkies! The stage is set and we are all ready to find out which of this year’s films will be crowned as favorites for the Oscar race. To that end, the Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations were announced this morning.

Trumbo, the biopic about blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, lead the pack with three nominations, including Outstanding Performance by a Cast. Brian Cranston’s turn as the egotistical but principled Trumbo earned a nomination in the Lead Actor category, while Helen Mirran’s performance as the anti-communist crusader and Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper was nominated in the Supporting Actress category.

Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of Lili Elbe, the first person to attempt gender reassignment surgery, in The Danish Girl was also honored with a nomination. Redmayne is generally considered to be a lock for his second consecutive Oscar nomination, however, it remains to be seen if he can be the first actor since Tom Hanks to win consecutive Best Actor Oscars. Newcomer Alicia Vikander also received a Supporting Actress nomination for her performance as Gerda Wegener, the supportive wife of Redmayne’s character.

Several other films landed two nominations in the lead and supporting categories: Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara for Carol, Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet for Steve Jobs, and Brie Larson and Jack Tremblay in Room.

This year’s nominations were studded with more surprises than normal. Helen Mirran received a nomination in the Lead Actress category for her role in Woman in Gold, a small film about a Jewish refugee who takes on the Austrian government to recover a painting that she believes was stolen from her family during World War II. Sarah Silverman scored a nomination as a restless wife and mother in the poorly received I Smile Back. However, the biggest surprise for me was the inclusion of Rachel McAdams for her role as investigative journalist Sacha Pfeiffer in Spotlight. The role that is generating most of the buzz from this excellent journalistic thriller is Michael Keaton’s. Last week, he was honored with the New York Film Critics Circle Award for this film. I have the feeling that most voters felt that he was a sure thing, so they decided to vote for a smaller film, thereby excluding him from receiving a personal nomination. He is, however, nominated as part of Spotlight’s ensemble cast.

The television nominations were not quite as fraught with surprise nominations. The ensemble cast of “Mad Men” was nominated for the final season of the period ad agency drama, as well as Jon Hamm for his portrayal of ad exec extraordinaire and ladies man Don Draper. The Downton Abbey cast was nominated for best ensemble, while the queen of the one-liners, Maggie Smith, was nominated for her role as the Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham. Fantasy favorite Game of Thrones also found itself with two nominations: one for the cast of the show and one for Peter Dinklage.

The show with the most nominations this year is the third season of Netflix’s House of Cards. The show received nominations for Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, as the most manipulative couple in the history of television, as well as a nomination for the cast as a whole.

Perennial favorite Modern Family received nominations for the ensemble cast and for Ty Burrell. Big Bang Theory, Transparent, Key & Peele, Orange is the New Black, and Veep rounded out the comedy ensemble cast category.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards will be presented, live, on January 30, 2016. The ceremony will air on TNT and TBS.

CAROL BURNETT

Carol Burnett

New York Film Critics Circle awards Carol with four wins

The New York Film Critics Circle Awards were announced today and there were plenty of surprises in store, such as Best Supporting Actress going to Kristen Stewart for Clouds of Sils Maria and Best Actor going to Michael Keaton for Spotlight—a role many consider supporting. One of the biggest surprises of the night Carol‘s Best Picture win, as Spotlight seemed to be the critical pick.  Carol ended up winning in four categories total, including Best Director, Screenplay, and Cinematography. A few other highlights include a Best Actress win for Saorise Ronan, who played an Irish immigrant in Brooklyn, and a Best Supporting Actor win going to three-time Tony winner Mark Rylance for his portrayal of a Soviet spy in Bridge of Spies. Surprises aside, critical and audience favorite Inside Out took home Best Animated Feature—and well deserved, as well. Often, the New York Film Critics Circle Awards awards are considered a barometer of the Academy Award nominations, so check out the wins below and start your betting pools!
