    The Golden Globes may be considered a joke among many, but they are an interesting pointer to the Academy Awards. I personally always look forward to the nominations.

    Next year the Academy Awards will move up by one month. It'll be interesting to see if the GGs move up too. I've gotten used to seeing the Golden Globes announce their winners BEFORE the Academy Award nomination ballots are due.

    Vickie,
    Yes, they may well be considered a bit of a joke among some people. But I consider myself a bit of an award show junkie - so i'll be tuning in for the ceremony next year. I look forward to seeing the nominations.
    It gives me the right to watch all of the award shows and then complain when they give it to a film I didn't want to win. [​IMG]

    Vickie, I included them in my formula for picking the Best Pix winner (which was accurate last year). I also used the Guilds and the Oscar noms in several catagories too, it wasn't just Globes of course.
    Still, that at least makes them of some value to me. [​IMG]
    And I think awards shows can be fun (or obnoxious, not much middle ground).

    Count me in.
    Sure there's only 60-some people on the board (I might very well be wrong on this), but who cares?
    I look at it as the big precursor, and usually a good measure for predicting the oscars.
    And anyway, for us hardcore film fans, it's loads of fun to bicker about Oscar predictions and nominations!

    Let the guessing begin!

    funny i caught this thread.
    i was just talking with a friend of mine tonight about this. his brother-in-law's mother is the board.
    guess how she chooses her selections?

    1. she goes to the movie with her son
    2. she lets her son make the selections.

    yikes!
    the son says he does this all the time. obviously i doubt everyone on the board does this (my friend said there's about 100) but it sure does surprise me a little.

    Dang, I wish I knew someone who'd let me fill out their ballot!

    I don't think of the GGs as a joke at all, I just know that there are people who do. Every year there's some article about how "meaningless" they are. What I never read is that, like it or not, how can the Golden Globes be meaningless when so many people pay so much attention to them?

    Seth, Nathan and Nick, I'm with you all the way! I've always liked to watch them and think and read about how they may (or may not) portend what the Academy will do. It's most interesting when the Academy turns around and does something unexpected (based on what was expected because of the GGs). For instance, when John Travolta won a GG for Get Shorty, and Nicole Kidman won a GG for To Die For, it was a "given" that one or both of them would be nominated for an Oscar, but neither was nominated. I laughed at Travolta, who was sooooo cocky that year when it seemed like he was winning everything, but felt bad for Nicole, who, I thought, deserved an Oscar nom.

    I'm an awards show junkie too. It's all fun!

    Leaders:

    Chicago: 8 nominations
    The Hours: 7
    Adaptation: 6

    Note: Y Tu Mama Tambien was nominated last year for Best Foreign film thus its absence from this year's list.

    The Globes also has an early cutoff than the Oscars thus the exclusion of Black Hawk Down for consideration from last year. I wonder who got left off this year.

    No nominations for Antwone Fisher?

    I actually haven't seen a lot of the big ones yet. I really want to, though. It seems like a decent list. Except for:

    "The Cider House Rules" didn't fare all that well either with the Golden Globes back in '99 (only receiving nods for Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay) before it garnered 7 Oscar nods. I think "Antwone Fisher" will do much better with the Acadamy than it did with the Hollywood Foreign Press.

    Heh, the GGs never did strike me as a highly credible/critical assessment of the best that films have to offer in a given year (more like a very small version of the people's choice awards). At least it appears that they (HFPA) are trying to not appear as sell-outs anymore, and to be more upstanding within the film press community.

    Remember, these were the people who gave Pia Zadora an award. I think they are a joke and little better than a junket for those involved, but the Academy has followed their tune for several years now, which speaks volumes about how poorly quality cinema in America has been treated. Expect the mediocrity to continue in February.
