Golden Globes 2015: What this means for the Oscar race

Before the Golden Globe festivities began, Boyhood producer John Sloss surveyed the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton, looking rather concerned. “I don’t have a good feeling about this,” he said, worried that Richard Linklater’s indie epic wasn’t going to walk away with the top prize. Sloss wasn’t fretting over what the night would bring his film so much as what it would mean for the Oscars, a month down the road. “As I told Rick, a win tonight means a 45 sec. close-captioned conversation with 6500 Academy members,” he said.

And that’s really what the Globes are all about. Yes, it’s an honor to win a prize, especially in a room as star-studded as the Golden Globes—but since none of the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association overlap with the Academy, the results never offer a direct correlation. And this year, the Oscar nomination ballots were submitted prior to Sunday night’s festivities, so none of the acceptance speeches could have a direct bearing on how Academy members initially voted. Yet when it comes to the momentum game, they still matter—and those speeches do make an impact when final votes are cast.

That said, there were some clear winners Sunday night: READ FULL STORY

'Boyhood' and 'Grand Budapest' win top Golden Globe awards

boyhood-01

Boyhood won three awards, including the prize for Best Drama at the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards. Richard Linklater took home the trophy for Best Director and Patricia Arquette won for Best Supporting Actress. But on the comedy half of the movie slate, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel rode a wave of recent critical goodwill to win Best Comedy or Musical, slipping past the presumed frontrunner, Birdman. Michael Keaton, however, did win the award for Best Actor in a Comedy, and Alejandro Iñárritu’s film also was honored for Best Screenplay. The only other movie to win multiple awards was The Theory of Everything, which took home statues for Best Actor, for Eddie Redmayne’s convincing performance as Stephen Hawking, and Best Score.

On the television side, several new shows got the attention of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Showtime’s The Affair was named Best Drama and Ruth Wilson won for Best Actress. Amazon’s Transparent claimed Best Comedy and Jeffrey Tambor won for Best Actor. (He and Keaton combined for a Mr. Mom sweep that made 1983 weep!) And Fargo beat out True Detective for Best Miniseries/Movie and Best Actor, with Billy Bob Thornton winning and giving the shortest speech of the night. The four major networks, meanwhile, went home emptyhanded for only the second time in Golden Globes history—though PBS and The CW did win prizes.

'Birdman' leads Golden Globes with 7 nominations

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association honored Birdman with seven Golden Globe nominations, including nods for actors Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone; director Alejandro G. Iñárritu; and for Best Musical or Comedy. In the Best Drama category, Boyhood and The Imitation Game—which each earned five nominations—were joined by Foxcatcher, Selma, and The Theory of Everything.

Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal, once considered long shots in the acting categories, following up their Screen Actors Guild honors with Globe nominations. Aniston joins frontrunners Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon in the Best Actress in a Drama race, while Gyllenhaal joins a powerhouse field that includes Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne.

In television, Fargo and True Detective were the top two shows, with five and four nominations, respectively. Their stars—Fargo‘s Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, and Detective‘s Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey—dominate a Best Actor in a TV Mini-series category that also includes The Normal Heart‘s Mark Ruffalo (who was also nominated for his role in Foxcatcher.)

The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on NBC on Jan. 11.

Greer Grammer named Miss Golden Globe

Greer Grammer will be this year’s Miss Golden Globe, the awards announced Thursday. The 22-year-old actress plays ditzy Lissa on MTV’s Awkward; she also appears in the upcoming film Life Partners, opposite Leighton Meester, Adam Brody, and Gillian Jacobs. And, as Miss and Mr. Golden Globe of years past, she also happens to be the child of a celebrity: as you may have guessed, Grammer’s father is three-time Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer. (Her mother is makeup artist Barrie Buckner.)

Grammer joins a long line of past Golden Globe assistants including Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick; Sam Fox, son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan; Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Several celebrity children who have held the position have gone on to become big-name actors in their own right, including Laura Dern, daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern; Melanie Griffith, daughter of Tippi Hedren; and Freddie Prinze Jr., son of Freddie Prinze.

Grammer will appear alongside returning hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at this year’s 72nd Annual Golden Globes, which air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 11.

Golden Globes: What '12 Years a Slave' victory means for Oscar race -- ANALYSIS

12-Years-a-Slave.jpg

A kind of hopelessness had set in at the Golden Globe viewing party hosted by Fox on Sunday night. The mood only got worse and worse as the show went on. The overall sense going into the ceremony was that members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were not major fans of Fox Searchlight’s harrowing 12 Years a Slave. 

Still, there were a few chances … all of them lost. Almost.

Leonardo DiCaprio on Globe-winning 'Wolf of Wall Street' role: 'Thank God' I didn't become Jordan Belfort

Over his decades-long career in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio has had a reputation as a partier and a playboy…but he’s got nothing on Jordan Belfort, the debaucherous role he played in The Wolf of Wall Street. While he loved delving into the part — and even picked up a Golden Globe for his performance on Sunday — he was just as happy to leave Jordan behind.

“I stopped this film and it was like a giant adrenaline dump,” he told reporters backstage at the Beverly Hilton. “I haven’t been able to work since, really. It was a phenomenal experience. I suppose I’ve been doing this for a long period of time. Making movies is an interesting process. You put your entire life on hold. And these characters really do envelop you, for better or for worse. So, thank God none of the attributes of this character rubbed off on my real life, because I probably wouldn’t be standing here today.”

He’s also grateful to Wolf‘s director, the inimitable Martin Scorsese, and his young-at-heart vision. “I’m just thankful that Marty Scorsese is still as punk-rock, still as vital at 71 years old.”
