Nominations For The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Announced

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.

There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor.

It’s also interesting to note that some of the major nominees that scored nominations in the major categories were left out of others. For example, David Fincher got a nod for Best Director for Gone Girl and Gillian Flynn got a nod for Best Screenplay, but the film didn’t make the cut for Best Picture. Similarly, The Imitation Game scored nominations for Best Picture and Best Screenplay, but not for Best Director, while Selma was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director, but not for Best Screenplay.

Overall, I expect that this is pretty close to what we’ll be seeing for the Oscar nominations next month, that is, when you subtract a few of the superfluous nominees that result when you split the categories into Drama and Comedy/Musical. I suppose you could say that the nominees are here, but it’s just a little overcrowded. Also, when you combine the categories together again, as we know from experience, there will probably be more dramas added, so films that didn’t make it today, like Unbroken, Whiplash, and A Most Violent Year, will still have a good chance for making the cut for the top prize, especially with more slots up for grabs.

The winners will be announced on January 11, 2015 in a ceremony that will air on NBC at 8 pm (EST).
