'Birdman' Leads Golden Globes Film Race With 7 Nominations

James Canellos ’17 / Emertaiment Monthly Staff Writer
While the Golden Globes haven’t always been the most reliable awards show to predict the Academy Award winners, they certainly can get momentum going for long shot contenders. While most of the films nominated were considered shoe-ins there are a handful of delightful surprises that now have a better chance of campaigning for an Academy Award nomination. Oscar favorites Birdman, Boyhood and The Imitation Game continue to cement there place as permanent residents in this Oscar season. After being snubbed yesterday at the Screen Actors Guild nominations (due mainly to a lack of DVD screeners) Ava DuVernay’s Selma received 4 nominations and is being considered a late addition to be reckoned with based on early reviews. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel got a lot of love despite the fact that it was released way back in March. Anderson himself is nominated three times for writing, producing and directing- the later being the most shocking since his work has been mostly overlooked during awards season. With an always crowded directing category, let’s see if Anderson can maintain this kind of popularity.
The 72nd annual Golden Globes will be hosted once again by power team Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on January 11th on NBC.
