The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Awards is doing its thing tonight.
I could get away with saying “No real surprises in the Best Motion Picture (Drama) category” if I had seen at least one of them. As it is, I’m just stuck rattling them off: Boyhood, Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game, Selma, and The Theory of Everything. For Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), we’ve got Into The Woods, Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, St. Vincent, and Pride. For the kids, Best Animated Motion Picture: The Lego Movie, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Big Hero 6, The Book of Life, and The Boxtrolls. For Best Foreign Language Film: Ida, Force Majeure, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, Tangerines, and Leviathan.
And so I move from “I have seen most of those” to “I have seen one of those” to “I have heard of most of those”.
While there are a lot more awards to be given, I’ll just give my guesses for the above.
Selma, Grand Budapest Hotel, Big Hero 6, and (throws dart at dartboard) Leviathan (no politics).
What are you guessing will win?
So… what have you been watching and/or reading?
