nominees//2014 GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS


The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Award were announced this morning by Aziz Ansari, Zoe Saldana, and Olivia Wilde. The fest, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, is one of the more glitzy Hollywood affairs, second only to the Oscars. The ceremony will be held January 12, hosted live by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The majority of films nominated could have been expected, but there were plenty of names and movies left off of the list. Most notably, after its snub at yesterday's SAG Awards nomination announcement, Saving Mr. Banks may have a hard time breaking into the Oscars. It was shut out from the Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Screenplay categories at the Globes, all three of which were expected to be places we'd see it. Its sole nomination was for Emma Thompson in the Best Actress category. Another "high profile" miss would be Lee Daniels' The Butler which didn't earn a single nomination, despite its highbrow cast including Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, and others. The film was a pretty big box office draw, but didn't make the mark with critics.

12 Years a Slave and American Hustle dominated the film categories, earning 7 nominations each. The Globes nominations have been somewhat laughable in the most recent years (mentioning films like The Tourist among nominees) and the HFPA has been accused of being star-hungry. But, this year's list seems much more appropriate in terms of quality and talent. Even smaller, artsier films, like Her and Francis Ha were able to find a spot.
