Nominations For The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the nominees for the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. As always expected with the Golden Globes, there are always a few surprise nominations. Before I get to that, I’ll get right into what was most predicted. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is continuing to prove to be an awards season frontrunner with a total of 7 nominations. Ben Affleck’s thriller Argo picked up five nominations that include Best Picture-Drama, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Supporting Actor for Alan Arkin. Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty are still proving to be strong contenders with four nominations for each.

One film that hasn’t been getting as much awards contention as originally predicted is Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (It was completely ignored by the Screen Actors Guild). Django Unchained managed to pick up 5 nominations including Best Picture-Drama, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and two Best Supporting Actor nods for Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio. The Golden Globe nominations might boost the film’s chances for Oscar contention.

A completely out of left field nominee is the almost forgotten Salmon Fishing in the Yemen which picked up nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor-Musical/Comedy, and Best Actress-Musical/Comedy. It’s a complete surprise considering it’s a very average film at best. Quvenzhané Wallis, who gave an amazing performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild, was shockingly left out of the Best Actress-Drama category. Robert Deniro was also surprisingly snubbed for his performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Matthew McConaughey, who has been picking up awards season momentum for his performance in Magic Mike, but has been left out in the dark by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
