Golden Globes Recap

What an abysmal, horrifically paced, boring telecast that was! A few notable exceptions would include but not necessarily be limited to Bong Joon-ho’s speech, Michelle William’s sppech, Brad Pitt’s speech, and Tom Hanks being presented with the Cecil B. DeMille award. But at least we got to have some fun watching it because our predictions were right on the money, right? Yeah, not so much. To be a fair only a couple of these were absolute curveballs, the rest made a lot of sense and probably would’ve been my second or third pick. Let’s see how we did:

Best Motion Picture – Drama
Prediction: The Irishman
Winner: 1917

Winner: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Best Original Song – Motion Picture

Winner: I’m Gonna Love Me Again (Rocketman)

So in the end I went 7/14. 50%. That is… sub-optimal. We’re going to have to step our game up going forward.

We are officially neck deep in awards season, with WGA nominations having been announced earlier today, and the BAFTA nominations being announced tomorrow. Unless I’m mistaken the next two major televised awards ceremonies will be the Critics Choice Movie Awards on January 12th, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 19th. I’ll be covering them all here on The Alert The Audience, so keep checking back! This Friday (January 10th) I will also be posting the nominations for the 2nd Annual Alert The Audience Film Awards, and my FINAL Oscar Nomination predictions will go up Sunday evening following the Critics Choice ceremony before the Academy reveals the nominees early Monday morning.
