Golden Globe Nominations: Marvel Outperforms Scorsese

When it comes to this year’s Golden Globe nominations, nothing is as it seems. Except for the stuff that is. While the Hollywood Foreign Press’ annual selection of nominees contains its fair share of snubs and surprises, the Moonlight-vs.-La La Land-vs.-Manchester by the Sea narrative continues to define this award season. There were some notable snubs (Scorsese? Jarmusch? The older Affleck brother?), but 2016 has been a great year for movies (if nothing else), and competition was stiff. Read on to see who will be appearing at Hollywood’s drunkest night, and how these nominations will affect the one award show you actually care about.

Review: 'Hacksaw Ridge' Redeems and Shocks

There is no shortage of great World War II action films, many of which have received significant praise from both critics and audiences alike. Films like Saving Private Ryan and the recent Fury are loved and studied often. It’s no real secret that films that enter into this genre can achieve a timeless status. However, only the cream of the crop can truly master what that era entailed, and portray it in not only a sensitive way, but a way that honors the sacrifices made. And with such an amazing story such as Desmond Doss’, extra precautions need to be made. Since director Mel Gibson’s downfall from fame with his leaked outbursts, he seems to have carefully planned his directorial return to Hollywood with this heroic tale. Hacksaw Ridge takes many key elements from great World War II films and applies them to an untold true story, positioning itself to very well become a new modern classic.
