Golden Globes, No Guts, NO Glory!

Once again, tomorrow very early the Golden Globes will be announced.  Since the Globes have two categories for picture, actor and actress, most of those we expect to get nominated will likely get nominated. So perhaps this is a futile exercise.  But nonetheless!  Do you have any last minute gut feelings that something extremely out of the ordinary might happen?  Pick up to three! Here are mine. 1. The Great…

According to Oscar/DGA history, no director has ever won the DGA, lost an Oscar nomination for directing, then won Best Picture.  It’s not happened ever, going back to 1949. So if this is a crazy year, as everyone keeps saying, you will see something happen that has never happened.   On the other hand, it’s possible that (I don’t know for sure) the DGA has never announced after Oscar ballots…

Well, as Iggy Pop would say, it will all be over soon.  There are so many weird surprises that could take place tomorrow since all of the nominations came after Oscar ballots were turned in. BAFTA did their voting completely differently this year and for the first time ever we’re making our nominations for the editing category without the Ace Eddie nominations!
