Golden Globe Awards Spread the Love and Fill the Evening with Surprises

Well, that happened. The 78th Golden Globe Awards have now come and gone, with the requisite surprises that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are so well known for. (For what it’s worth, I went nine for fourteen with my Film predictions. That’s about average for me. The Television team went eight for eleven with their collective picks, so kudos to them for a very strong showing). Most of the time, you just sort of shrug off the HFPA and continue on with the precursor season. This time around, the Globes managed to pull off something a little unique. Not only did they spread the love (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Nomadland, and Soul each won two Globes), they were surprising shutouts for Mank and Promising Young Woman. But wait, there’s more. While there were upsets and unexpected winners in several categories, there really wasn’t anything that changed the nature of the Oscar race. I’ll tackle it more on Friday in an Awards column, but for example, Nomadland beat The Trial of the Chicago 7 in Best Motion Picture – Drama, but the Globes rarely predict the winner there. So, Aaron Sorkin‘s film may have held serve, actually. Weird, right? Don’t get me wrong, Nomadland is in a good spot that any other flick would likely be happy to trade into, but a lot is still to be decided. If nothing else, it does seem to signal that it’s a two horse race for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. More soon, but now, check out the winners below.
