Never in the history of the Oscar’s inception has a race been so tight. Between Amerian Hustle, 12 Years A Slave & Gravity, the Academy Award’s looks to have its work cut out for them Sunday. But, like anything else, the show must go on, winners must be announced, and hearts must be broken. So without further ado, below is Night Film Review’s final list of the predictions and thoughts for this years Academy Awards. Stay tuned and come back for updates throughout the evening. Enjoy the show folks!
So it’s January. That means Awards Season is well under way. As always with the start of the New Year, the Golden Globes are the first high-profile televised awards broadcast, and it’s a night for the stars to kick up their heels, have a drink (or 5), and get a little rowdy in a way that only Hollywood does best. This year was quite the year for film and television, and although the nominations by the Hollywood Foreign Press (HFP) are usually not the most agreed upon or necessarily the most prestigious, they surely have something for everyone to talk about. Whereas the Oscars are a more serious and classier event, the Golden Globes are a night where stars say everything or anything they couldn’t–or shouldn’t–say, come Oscar night. Interestingly enough, unlike past Awards seasons, this year the Globes have chosen to nominate, vote, and broadcast their winners all before the Academy Awards have even released their nominations. Perhaps the Globes are trying to secure their own viewership and set themselves apart from the fast approaching Oscars, or maybe their just as eager as we at Night Film Reviews are for Awards Season to start. Either way, without further ado, here is the list of nominees and winners but with my own personal take on the verdicts. Which awards were well deserved and which were clear snubs? There were some interesting developments to come from this evening so I’m giving you a sneak-peak into my predictions and how the winners of tonight could possibly have a great impact on the Oscar nominations announced this coming Thursday.
Now let’s get this party started!
