Golden Globes Results/Film Awards Clearinghouse Vol. 8-The Major Categories/BAFTA Nominations

Good Monday Everyone,


Here are the results from last night's Golden Globe ceremony:

Best Pic Drama: Boyhood
Best Pic Comedy/Musical: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Best Actor Drama: Eddie Redmayne/Theory of Everything
Best Actress Drama: Julianne Moore/Still Alice
Best Actor Comedy/Musical: Michael Keaton/Birdman
Best Actress Comedy/Musical: Amy Adams/Big Eyes
Best Supporting Actor: JK Simmons/Whiplash
Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette/Boyhood
Best Director: Richard Linklater/Boyhood
Best Screenplay: Birdman
Best Original Score: The Theory of Everything
Best Animated Film: How to Train Your Dragon 2
Best Foreign Language Film: Leviathan
Best Original Song: Glory from Selma

Of course, these results have no chance to impact the Oscar nominations because the nominating voting closed long before the GG ceremony last night.  These results could carry a bit of weight as Academy members get ready for the second wave of voting from Thursday's announced nominees for the actual Oscar winners.

Surprises from last night: "Grand Budapest's" Best Comedy/Musical win.  "How to Train Your Dragon 2" beating "the LEGO Movie" for Best Animated Film, "Leviathan" upsetting "Ida" for Best Foreign Language Film and "Birdman" edging "Boyhood" for Best Screenplay.

Recall that Telluride had 18 GG nominations total going into the ceremony last night:

"Birdman" led all films with seven nominations (Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Screenplay and Score).

"The Imitation Game" had five (Picture, Actor, Supporting Actress, Screenplay and Score).

"Foxcatcher" was nominated three times (Picture, Actor, Supporting Actor).

Single nominations were captured by "Wild" "Ida" and "Leviathan".

Last night Telluride films won three Golden Globes:"Birdman's" Michael Keaton won Best Actor Comedy/Musical and the film also won Best Screenplay.  "Leviathan" won Best Foreign Language Film.

At the end of the evening Boyhood won three Globes: Best Pic/Drama, Director and Supporting Actress.  "Birdman" won two: Actor/Comedy-Musical and Screenplay.  "Theory of Everything" won two: Actor/Drama and Original Score.  No other film won more than a single Globe.  Tough night for "The Imitation Game" which went 0 for 5.


Here's the next to last posting prior to Oscar nomination morning on Thursday.  I'll post the final FAC on Wednesday morning.

The FAC uses the published predictions of the following to develop its list of likely Oscar nominees:

Kristopher Tapley/InContention/HitFix
Sasha Stone/Awards Daily
Bred Brevet/Rope of Silicon
Nathaniel Rogers/Film Experience
Anne Thompson/Thompson on Hollywood
Peter Knegt/IndieWire
Clayton Davis/Awards Circuit
Scott Feinberg/The Hollywood Reporter

Telluride #41 films are Bold (with their last rating in parentheses followed by the original FAC ranking from Vol 1. back on  ).

Today, I update the eight major categories:


1) Boyhood (1) (2)
2) Birdman (2) (1)
3) The Imitation Game (3) (3)
4) The Theory of Everything (5) (6)
5) Selma (4)
6) The Grand Budapest Hotel (6) (10)
7) Whiplash (7)
8) Gone Girl (9) (8)
9) Nightcrawler (11)

If The Academy follows form from the last three years, this would be the cut off at nine nominations.

10) American Sniper (13)
11) Foxcatcher (10) (4)
12) Unbroken (8) (5)
13) Into the Woods (12)
14) Interstellar (14) (7)
15) Mr. Turner (15) (9)

Comment:"Selma" seems to be taking a small hit in the estimation of this collective of Oscarologists probably due the lack of a PGA nomination and The BAFTA snubbing that happened earlier this week.  "Nightcrawler" and "American Sniper" both seem to have realistic chances to get a Best Picture nomination although I continue to cross my fingers for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher".

"Unbroken's" fall from favor appears to be complete.


1) Richard Linklater/Boyhood (1) (2)
2) Alejandro Inarritu/Birdman (2) (1)
3) Ava DuVernay/Selma (3)
4) Morten Tyldum/The Imitation Game (4) (6)
5) Wes Anderson/The Grand Budapest Hotel (5) (9)

6) David Fincher/Gone Girl (6)
7) Damien Chazelle/Whiplash (7)
8) Clint Eastwood/American Sniper (9)
9) Bennett Miller/Foxcatcher (8) (3)
10) James Marsh/The Theory of Everything (13)

Comment: The "Selma" slide doesn't show any effect in this category.  Marsh rebounds a little and Jolie seems to be done.


1) Michael Keaton/Birdman (1) (1)
2) Eddie Redmayne/The Theory of Everything (2) (4)
3) Benedict Cumberbatch/The Imitation Game (4) (2)
4) David Oyelowo/Selma (3) (6)
5) Jake Gyllenhaal/Nightcrawler (5)

6) Steve Carell/Foxcatcher (6) (3)
7) Ralph Fiennes/The Grand Budapest Hotel (8) (7)
8) Timothy Spall/Mr. Turner(7) (5)
9) Bradley Cooper/American Sniper (9)
10) Oscar Isaac/A Most Violent Year (10)

Comment:  Oyelowo may have suffered a bit.  Top three seem to be solid and then the next four: Oyelowo, Gyllenhaal, Carell and Fiennes fighting for that last two spots.


1) Julianne Moore/Still Alice (1) (8)
2) Reese Witherspoon/Wild (2) (1)
3) Felicity Jones/The Theory of Everything (3) (4)
4) Rosamund Pike/Gone Girl (4) (3)
5) Jennifer Aniston/Cake (5)

6) Amy Adams/Big Eyes (7) (2)
7) Marion Cotillard/Two Days, One Night (6)
8) Hilary Swank/The Homesman (8) (6)
9) Emily Blunt/Into the Woods (9)
10) Shailene Woodley/The Fault in Our Stars (10) (7)

Comment: The category may be locked with these top five.


1) JK Simmons/Whiplash (1) (1)
2) Edward Norton/Birdman (2) 
3) Ethan Hawke/Boyhood (3) (4)
4) Mark Ruffalo/Foxcatcher (4) (3)
5) Robert Duvall/The Judge (5) (8)

6) Josh Brolin/Inherent Vice (6) (5)
7) Tom Wilkinson/Selma (7) (7)
8) Miyavi/Unbroken (8)
9) Christoph Waltz/Big Eyes (9)
10) Steve Carell/Foxcatcher (NR)

Comment:  Carell's nomination in this category by the Brits sent up a flare that there could be some sentiment that he should be in the same category on Thursday morning and so, for the first time, he appears in Supporting.  Honestly, though, the top five are really solid.


1) Patricia Arquette/Boyhood (1) (1)
2) Emma Stone/Birdman (3) (4)
3) Kiera Knightley/The Imitation Game (4) (2)
4) Meryl Streep/Into the Woods (2)
5) Jessica Chastain/A Most Violent Year (5) (8)

6) Laura Dern/Wild (6) (3)
7) Rene Russo/Nightcrawler (10)
8) Tilda Swinton/Snowpiercer (7)
9) Naomi Watts/St. Vincent (8)
10) Carmen Ejogo/Selma (9) (9)

Comment:  Meryl Streep with a late Laura Dern a bit of life.  Rene Russo is also very, very hot.  Don't be stunned if she has the fifth spot Thursday morning.


1) The Imitation Game (1) (2)
2) Gone Girl (2) (6)
3) The Theory of Everything (3) (3)
4) Wild (4) (8)
5) American Sniper (7) (4)

6) Inherent Vice (5) (5)
7) Whiplash (NR)
8) Unbroken (6) (1)
9) Into the Woods (8) (7)
10) Still Alice (9)

Comment:  The revelation that "Whiplash" was categorized by The Academy as an Adapted script has this and the Original Screenplay race reflecting a new reality at the 11th hour.  Next to JK Simmons, a screenplay nomination has always been the second best possibility for a "Whiplash" Oscar nomination.  So, it shows up here at #7 in its first appearance in the category it will actually be eligible for.   I suspect it gets a nomination here and bumps "Wild" or "Sniper".


1) Boyhood (1) (2)
2) Birdman (2) (1)
3) The Grand Budapest Hotel (3) (4)
4) Nightcrawler (6)
5) Selma (5) (9)
6) Foxcatcher (7) (3)
7) Mr. Turner (8) (5)
8) A Most Violent Year (9) (7)
9) The LEGO Movie (10)
10) Wild Tales (11)

Comment:  "Whiplash's" departure from this category opens a chance for "Foxcatcher" to hop back in.
