    Moulin Rouge & A Beautiful Mind seemed to do very well; haven't seen A Beautiful Mind, however I've been very impressed with Moulin Rouge, which at least took big chances [​IMG]
    Just saw the list elsewhere a few minutes ago, thanks for the breakdown.

    Actually, that's a pretty reasonable list for the Golden Globes. No howlers like the "Pia Zadora incident". [​IMG]

    I like seeing Man Who Wasn't There and Mulholland Dr. getting some love, but for Hedwig to be excluded from best musical/comedy and best song is just wrong.

    HUGE MEMENTO SNUB, except screenplay. That has to tell us that it's lost any Oscar steam, at least that's how I read it.

    Not sure about the Spacey nom based on word of mouth. Same with Will Smith.

    LOTR got the 2 big ones - pix/director, adding to it's Oscar build-up.

    Muholland Drive proves that pix outside the mainstream are getting recognition. Hedwig even got a nomination for JCM.

    Pearl Harbor sneaks in a nod with Best Song. Honestly, despite this being it's best chance, I'm still surprised.

    Is Come What May eligible? I thought it was written by them BEFORE Moulin Rouge, even though it is original work by them.

    I'd say the Best Pix are what I would expect from the Academy at this point, except that Moulin Rouge will probably get Man Who Wasn't There's spot when they bring it into one category.

    Take out Christenson and I'd say you could very well be looking at the Best Supporting Academ noms. Too bad that McKellan is out in the cold there, I honestly think he was wonderful in his role.

    I believe Come What May will be ineligible for Oscar consideration since it was originally written for 1996's Romeo and Juliet. I also think that Mementois getting the short straw here, it's the best movie of the year IMO. I am still trying to figure out why Mullholland Drive is getting such raves. Yes it is risky and different, but I get the feeling that it is a case of "Wow, what was that about, it must be good!". Just my opinion of course.

    Wasn't everyone last year complaining that the Golden Globes were a joke, and not to be taken seriously. I tend to agree with that sentiment. Though the list looks pretty good, but breaking Best Picture into different categories seems silly. Give me one category please.

    Keep in consideration that this is the Golden Globes we're talking about. Their rules are likely different in regard to some things, such as songs. I think they have generally done a decent job with these nominations, but the "legitimacy" (my quotes) of the organization always calls things into question.
    As for Memento, I've been saying all along that I don't foresee it getting those big Oscar nominations, screenplay aside, and I think this bears that out. The Globes had twice as many chances to nominate it (if you consider the split of Best Picture by category) but failed to do so.
    Not that you asked [​IMG] but I think A Beautiful Mind is a lock for a Best Picture nomination from the Academy. I think In the Bedroom's chances get better as the other groups continue to regard it highly. Amelie, which hasn't seemed to get noticed as much, should still have a strong push behind it. Plus, it's a well loved film. Ali probably stands a decent chance, but I don't know that it's going to grab people. I haven't seen Black Hawk Down, but it looks like a strong contender.
    While I would be shocked if they did so, don't doubt the power of Frank Darabont. The Green Mile being up for the award really surprised me, and The Majestic isn't even as good as it. Still, it is a nice, old fashioned movie that I could see appealing to the Academy. I thought maybe The Royal Tenenbaums would gain some momentum. Doesn't look likely. The Man Who Wasn't There or Mulholland Drive, much to my surprise, may get the "quirky" slot.

    As I've been saying elsewhere the 2 locks are
    A Beautiful Mind and In the Bedroom
    You are critically well received, released in Oscar season, and are backed by Dreamworks or Miramax; here is your complementary AA nomination. [​IMG]
    I feel like Amelie is the best foreign film lock, AA I mean.
    LOTR will be the BIG picture thrown in, which hurts Shrek a great deal (as does the best animated (aka Shrek) award being added). [​IMG]
    Gives you 2 spots for the quirky, or other...Muholland Drive looks to have one of them. I'd call it a toss up between Black Hawk Down and Moulin Rouge at this point.
    The Globes are a joke, yet they do have some meaning to the Oscar season. Just think Gladiator.
    When A Beautiful Mind wins the GG, I'd say it's time to put your money on it winning the Oscar as well. Then all the In the Bedroom fans will be calling the Oscars a joke, etc.
    (this could probably be reversed as well, but with Crowe being in his hot streak and the Academy LOVING the chance to give an award to a long-standing money maker (Ron Howard in this case) ABM looks to have a sweep of Pix, Director, Actor all lined up in a row.
    So will Tilda get pushed aside by Spacek? Interesting race there.

    Here's something that I do NOT understand:
    How is Connelly's role in A Beautiful Mind considered "supporting", yet Blanchett's turn in Bandits is considered "leading"?
    This is not a comment on performance, as I adore both actresses. It just makes no sense to me.

    Regarding Memento, I thought four of the movies (haven't seen A Beautiful Mind) in the drama category were better than it. I haven't seen any posts about the TFCA, so in case some don't know, they awarded Memento for best movie. So there is still be a slight chance it'll get nominated for Oscar's best picture.

    I'm disappointed that Final Fantasy hasn't received any recognition for best song and score, two categories that I thought it would have really good chances in.

    Legally Blonde for Best Picture Comedy? While the film can pass for mild entertainment, I wouldn't put it in the top 5 comedies of this year. It just shows how weak the films are in this genre this year.

    I'm also glad that John Cameron Mitchell got an acting nod. However, both Jack Nicholson and Guy Pearce were not nominated. Having not seen most of the performances in this category, I would have to withhold any comments for now as to whether any injustice has been done here. [​IMG]

    Yes, Blanchett certainly was not a lead in Bandits, especially if one considers Naomi Watts a supporting player in Mulholland Drive. (I don't think she is, but as off the wall as it is, I've seen her listed in that category. What?!) That's not to mention that I thought Blanchett was embarrassing in the film. She's a great actress, but this is not one of her better moments.

    Thanks for the list Edwin.
    Seeing this list of nominees only makes me realize how few movies I've seen this past year! [​IMG] I love movies and with work and home keeping me busier than ever, watching movies is at the bottom of my list, unfortunately.
    I'm really looking forward to In the Bedroom and Moulin Rouge...that is to start! [​IMG]
