2014 Golden Globe Nominations



12 Years A Slave

You know the Oscars are drawing nearer when Christmas and Golden Globes are trending on Twitter. Earlier today the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for January’s ceremony, seen by many as an indicator for the Academy Awards. If you disagree just look at last year, when the Globes proved to be a game-changer for Argo.

This year has sparked a hoard of comments and replies, with a few high profile exclusions from the list, and some other films doing surprisingly well among the Hollywood Foreign Press. The biggest surprise was Oprah Winfrey not winning a nomination for Supporting Actress in The Butler. Could this be a bad omen for the Oscars?

Those gaining plenty of momentum recently include June Squibb and Daniel Bruhl, both receiving SAG and Golden Globe nominations this week, propelling them up the supporting ranks and making them solid outsiders at the Oscars. Judi Dench and Emma Thompson are also good bets for an Oscar nom as leading actresses, and with the extra boost of a Best Film and Best Screenplay nomination Philomena is rising up the ranks and may (deservedly) secure a Best Picture nomination from the Academy.

Monsters University was not nominated for Best Animated Feature, making way for The Croods, which probably surprised many. Frozen was predictably included, and will probably win. Other surprise appearances include One Chance, the Paul Potts biopic, nominated for Best Song, and Julia Louise-Dreyfus as Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) for Enough Said.

Leading the charge is 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle with 7 nominations each. Nebraska follows with 5, then Gravity and Captain Phillips with 4 each. A full list of nominations is below.

The 2014 Golden Globe awards will be presented by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and broadcast live around the world on Sunday January 12th 2014.
