Ok, so The Golden Globes have announced their nominations, and because of the roaring success this post was last time I did it here is round 2. I hope you are all ready.
Carol – Not seen it, looks good though.
Mad Max: Fury Road – What a pleasant surprise. It won’t win but I’m glad it got recognition.
The Revenant – Not seen it, but the trailer is breath taking.
Room – I know virtually nothing about this film.
Spotlight – I mean everyone says it is fantastic, but the director also made Adam Sandler’s The Cobbler. I’m just saying.
I reckon it’ll Be Carol.
Cate Blanchett (Carol) – Cate is always spectacular.
Brie Larson (Room) – Again, I know nothing about this film.
Rooney Mara (Carol) – Cleary lots of love for Carol, I just feel like Cate would edge Rooney because of her status.
Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn) – I love Saoirse, and it really would be fantastic for her.
Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) – Further proof that this has been Vikander’s year.
I’m going for Blanchett.
Bryan Cranston (Trumbo) – I’ll be honest I think it looks a bit lame. But Cranston is a great Actor.
Leonardo Di Caprio (The Revenant) – He may well win the Golden Globe, but he won’t win the Oscar will he.
Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) – I reckon he would win, if he hadn’t won last year.
Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) – Fassbender is always superb.
Will Smith (Concussion) – He hasn’t got a chance really has he.
I’m going with Leo, because I feel like the Globes pity him.
Best film (Musical or Comedy)
The Martian – Um, is it a comedy? Yeah it was pretty good, not sure it was award worthy though.
Spy – I enjoyed Spy but I don’t think it’s awards worthy to be honest.
Trainwreck – Yes! Go Golden Globes! This won’t win but I’m really pleased it got nominated.
The Big Short – I’m not going to lie, I thought this looked a bit rubbish.
Joy – David O Russel, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. So yeah it’s going to win.
It’ll be Joy, but I hope Trainwreck does it.
Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy
Jennifer Lawrence (Joy) – I mean personally I think Joy looks a bit lame, but she’ll probably win.
Melissa McCarthy (Spy) – One of the best five performances of the year? I liked it sure, but top five??
Amy Schumer (Trainwreck) – It would be so fantastic if she won. But she won’t.
Maggie Smith (The Lady in the Van) – Fuck off. I’m so bored of this film already and I haven’t even seen it.
Lily Tomlin (Grandma) – Not seen it, looks good.
J-Law has this one in the bag I reckon. With Lily Tomlin as her closest rival.
Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy
Christian Bale (The Big Short) – I do think Bale is great, but I just don’t think this film will be.
Steve Carrell (The Big Short) – Still riding on the success of Foxcatcher I see.
Matt Damon (The Martian) – He’s funny, but top five? I wouldn’t have said so.
Al Pacino (Danny Collins) – Looks a bit dull doesn’t it?
Mark Ruffalo (Infinitely Polar Bear) – Until now I hadn’t even heard of this film.
This is tough because none of them are really screaming out at me, so I’ll go with Ruffalo.
Best Animated Film
Anomalisia – Looks Fantastic.
The Good Dinosaur – I know its Pixar, but it does look rubbish doesn’t it?
Inside Out – This needs to win. There are no two ways about it.
The Peanuts Movie – Now this one is a surprise, I’ve not seen it but I am a fan of the tv series.
Shaun the Sheep Movie – Yes! Go Golden Globes!
It NEEDS to be Inside Out.
Todd Haynes (Carol) – Purely because I think Carol will win best Picture, I doubt they’ll give him the Director award.
Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) – This is the guy who directed Adam Sandler’s The Cobbler. That’s all I have to say.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (The Revenant) – I’d put money on Inarritu winning this.
George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) – It is so fantastic that Mad Max is getting as much recognition as this. Because it really was a game changer.
Ridley Scott (The Martian) – One of the top five? Just because it’s Ridley Scott doesn’t mean you have to nominate him.
I reckon it’ll be Inarritu.
Best Original Score
The Danish Girl – Not a clue what it sounds like, but it’s Desplat so it won’t be bad.
Carol – Again, I haven’t heard the music.
The Hateful Eight – This is Tarantino’s first Original Score in a movie. I feel like that’s why it’s here.
Steve Jobs – I can’t comment on the music of this film.
The Revenant – See above.
I’m stabbing in the dark here, but I’ll go for Desplat and the Danish Girl.
Best Supporting Actor
Paul Dano (Love and Mercy) – Yes, good choice.
Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) – Yes, another good choice.
Michael Shannon (99 Homes) – Yes! Fantastic Choice.
Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation) – YES! YES! YES! Good job Golden Globes!
Sylvester Stallone (Creed) – hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah I take it back.
Please be Idris Elba. He is sensational. But seriously the Golden Globes did themselves proud with this category, well 80% of this category.
Best Supporting Actress
Jane Fonda (Youth) – I know nothing about this film.
Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight) – I feel like she got this because they wanted to give Tarantino another nomination.
Helen Mirren (Trumbo) – I doubt the voters even bothered to see this before voting her in.
Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) – YES! It would be so deserved and amazing if Vikander won this.
Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) – I Reckon she’ll walk away with the award.
I think it’ll be Winslet, but I’d rather it were Vikander.
Room – I know nothing about this film.
Spotlight – Written by the man who brought you The Cobbler.
The Big Short – Looks lame.
Steve Jobs – This’ll win.
The Hateful Eight – Will it be any different from the rest of his films though?
I reckon it’ll be Steve Jobs.
Well I think that definitely on a par with last year, if not better than it. Thanks for joining me.
