The Golden Globe nominations are led by “Birdman”

Bright and early this morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their 2015 Golden Globe award nominations. Leading the charge this year was Birdman, while other films like Boyhood, Foxcatcher, Gone Girl, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, Selma, and The Theory of Everything made respectable showings as well. To one degree or another, those candidacies got a boost or at least are holding steady today, while on the flip side Interstellar didn’t do nearly as well as expected and Unbroken was surprisingly shut out entirely. Throw in a shut out for what seemed like a surefire Golden Globe nominee like Begin Again (plus American Sniper as well), and there were more than a few things to discuss…

As I just mentioned, Birdman led the way, getting a total of seven nominations, which were Best Picture (Comedy or Musical), Best Director for Alejandro González Iñárritu, Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) for Michael Keaton, Best Supporting Actor for Edward Norton, Best Supporting Actress for Emma Stone, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. It was far and away the big winner this morning, though it won’t be competing in every category against its main Academy Award competition. It will be going head to head with Boyhood (Richard Linklater) and Selma (Ava DuVernay) in Best Director though, so there’s that.

One of the more interesting results that came about from the Globes announcement was that Gone Girl popped up in a bunch of places, but missed out in Best Picture (Drama). Also, we’re seeing The Grand Budapest Hotel really come on strong now, making it at least a viable contender for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay citations with Oscar.

Finally, I think we can essentially mark down former long shots Jennifer Aniston (Best Actress for Cake) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Best Actor for Nightcrawler) for Oscar nods now, as they have Globe and Screen Actors Guild noms to boost them to the finish line. On the other hand, it appears that Globe snubbed folks like Bradley Cooper (Best Actor for American Sniper), Angelina Jolie (Best Director for Unbroken), Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor for Interstellar), Christopher Nolan (Best Director for Interstellar), and Shailene Woodley (Best Actress for The Fault in Our Stars) are on life support. They’re not completely out of it, but the odds are no longer in their favor, to say the least.
