Even in their heyday, the Golden Globes were looked down upon by Academy voters.
As the media struggles to find the best way to cover the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globe nominations – announced Monday morning, despite NBC’s cancellation of the awards show. 2022 – it may help to remember that this elite contingent of Hollywood reporters for foreign media never reflected the tastes of Oscar voters.
At best, the Globes brought a few names into focus. (They added categories for Comedy/Musical and considered “The Martian” a comedy.) The media has long paid attention to Globes mentions more than Academy voters ever did. . Members despise the HFPA with disdain and try to distance themselves as much as possible – unless they have an interest in a certain movie or talent, in which case, they promote their cause. by paying attention to the box office or Oscar.
NBC’s live Golden Globes show had more of an impact on building the momentum of the winners, but that’s not going to happen this year. The Screen Actors Guild, which presented “Parasite” with its Best Stageing award in 2020 before going on to win the Best Picture Oscar, was much more predictable.
The Critics Choice Awards, too, have a larger, more diverse membership (nearly 500 from North America) that includes radio, television and online professionals. Both awards will announce their winners on January 9, but only CCA will air (on TBS and CW). As it sought to build viewers for the show, CCA also endured scrutiny from Los Angeles Times.
There were a few surprises among the nominations from the expanded (and slightly reformed) HFPA, which now totals 105 members (57.1% female, 17.1% Asian, 11.4% Latinx and 5). .7% black), except for rapper Snoop Dog’s creative pronunciation of everyone from Denis Villeneuve to Ben Affleck.
Fall Festival Boom from Kenneth Branagh (Focus Features Memoir “Belfast) and Jane Campion (Netflix’s“The power of the dog) Leads the Globes field with seven nominations each, and is sure to do well at the Oscars. Both actor-friendly films also scored with the CCA, with 11 and 10 nominations, respectively. The CCA, like the Oscars that include many crafting categories, awarded 11 spots to Steven Spielberg’s “Western Story” (20th Century / Disney) and 10 to the space epic “Dune” (Warner Bros. ). Both films received four nods from the HFPA.

Two VFX-friendly films from Searchlight met different fates from the two groups. The HFPA fooled Guillermo del Toro’s chilling film “Nightmare Alley,” which scored eight nods at the CCA; CCA removed Wes Anderson’s trilogy as the “French Dispatch”. The HFPA recognized Anderson’s film with a nomination for Alexandre Desplat’s Best Score.
Chances are that CCA’s list of 10 best movies could repeat at Oscar nominations on the morning of February 8, including the musicals “West Side Story” and “Tick, Tick, Boom” and awards. Apple TV’s Sundance “CODA.” (See IndieWire’s Best Picture predictions) here.)
Among the directorial contenders, Branagh, Campion, Spielberg and Denis Villeneuve (“Dune” by Warner Bros.) landed from both groups, Guillermo del Toro (“Nightmare Alley”) and Paul Thomas Anderson (“Licorice”) Pizza,” (MGM/UA), received approval from the CCA. Globe comedy/musical nominees Anderson and Adam McKay (Netflix’s final comedy “Don’t Look Up”) appear Globes Screenplay “Licorice Pizza” earned eight CCA’s, followed by six nominations for Warner Bros.’s “Don’t Look Up” and “King Richard” (which had four Globe nominations) .
Two women shortlisted Globes for Best Director: Campion and actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, with their debut film “The Lost Daughter” (Netflix). At the Oscars, Gyllenhaal is most likely to receive the award for Best Adapted Screenplay; Her co-star Olivia Colman has scored both HFPA and CCA nominations for Best Actress, alongside Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye” by Searchlight), Lady Gaga (“The Gucci House” by Searchlight), and Lady Gaga (“The Gucci House” by Searchlight). MGM/UA), Nicole Kidman (“Being Rich”) and Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”).
Rachel Zegler’s “West Side Story” scored a CCA Award for Best Young Actor/Actress as well as a Comedy/Musical Globe nomination, but her co-stars were Marion Cotillard (“” Annette” of Amazon), Jennifer Lawrence (“Don’t Look Up”), and Emma Stone (“Cruella” of Disney) are long-running Oscars. Clearly missing from both lists are Jennifer Hudson as Aretha Franklin in “Respect” (MGM/UA) and Penelope Cruz in Pedro Almodovar’s “Parallel Mothers” (Sony Pictures Classics).
Also shortlisted for Best Actor by both groups are Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Power of the Dog”), Peter Dinklage (“MGM/UA’s Cyrano”), Andrew Garfield (“Tick, Tick, Boom”) ”), Will Smith (“King Richard”), and Denzel Washington (“The Tragedy of Macbeth” by AppleTV+), but not nominated for Globe Musical / Comedy Leonardo DiCaprio (“Don’t Look Up”), Cooper Hoffman (“Licorice Pizza”) and Anthony Ramos (“In the Pitch”).
Surprisingly, the Best Actor nominee Mahershala Ali is slowly gaining traction for the drama “Swan Song” (Apple TV +), but the race for Best Actor is very competitive. so he’s still a long shot, along with CCA candidate Nicolas Cage (“Pig”).
Among the supporting cast, “Belfast” stars Jamie Dornan and Ciaran Hinds scored with both groups, along with Troy Kotsur (“CODA”) and Kodi frontman Smit-McPhee (“The Power of the”) Dog”) but were not nominated for Globe Ben Affleck (“The Tender Bar”) or CCA nominees Jared Leto (“House of Gucci”) and JK Simmons (“Being the Ricardos”).
Among the supporting actresses, Caitriona Balfe (“Belfast”), Ariana DeBose (“West Side Story”), Kirsten Dunst (“The Power of the Dog”), Aunjanue Ellis (“King Richard”) make it to both. list. Ruth Negga (“Passing”) received the Globe nod, while Ann Dowd (“Mass”) and Rita Moreno (“West Side Story”) scored with CCA voters. “Belfast” star Judi Dench failed to score on either list.
The SAG Awards nominations on January 12 will put the actor races in the spotlight. Both Globes and CCA offer additional categories, and CCA fills six active positions, not five. Just because both the Globes and CCA instigated Alana Haim (“Licorice Pizza”) for the Globes and CCA newcomer doesn’t make her an Oscar winner.
