Golden Globe winners and losers: ‘Wolf’ pounces, Redford rallies, Oprah slapped

After being snubbed by the SAG Awards and most film critics’ trophies, “The Wolf of Wall Street” finally pounced when the Golden Globe nominations were announced, with bids for Best Drama Picture and Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) – but, not, surprisingly for director Martin Scorsese. Robert Redford (“All is Lost“) has been rescued. However, “The Butler” – a superstar at the SAG noms — abruptly took a bow and left the room. Voters even slapped Oprah Winfrey!

Biggest winners were the two films with the most nominations (seven) – “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle.” Those contenders plus “Nebraska” were the only ones scoring bids for all top three races: Best Picture, Director and Screenplay. Usually that means they must be considered the Oscar frontrunners. “Hustle” stars Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams rallied after failing to make the SAG list.

Captain Phillips” had faltered among precursor prizes, but now it’s up for Best Drama Picture and Director (Paul Greengrass), thus charging ahead on the derby track alongside “Gravity,” which also scored a nom for helmer Alfonso Cuaron plus lead actress Sandra Bullock.

Biggest surprise among Best Drama Picture contenders – “Rush,” which also pulled off a nom for supporting actor Daniel Bruhl. Ron Howard‘s racing flick had early award hopes when it came roaring out of the pack back in September, but stalled at the box office.

Nonetheless, “Rush” bumped “Saving Mr. Banks” off the Best Drama Picture track. “Mr. Banks” had been ranked third in our Experts’ predictions, but it only managed a Best Drama Actress bid for Emma Thompson. Tom Hanks’ supporting turn got snubbed here, just as it had at SAG.

“Her” continues to zoom ahead of kudos expectations. After landing on the AFI Top 10 list and winning Best Picture laurels from the National Board of Review and Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. (shared with “Gravity”), it garnered Globe noms for Best Comedy/Musical Picture, actor (Joaquin Phoenix – his first major bid this awards season) and screenplay.

“Inside Llewyn Davis” was expected to make the rundown for Best Comedy/Musical Picture, but it also snagged an acting nod for Oscar Isaac.

While chatting around Hollywood in recent days, HFPA members have boldly proclaimed their  love for “Philomena,” so its no surprise to see it with three top noms: Best Drama Picture, Actress (Judi Dench) and Screenplay.

Over all Oscar derby is now more confusing than ever. Just yesterday pundits marveled at the impressive showings of “The Butler,” “Dallas Buyers’ Club” and “August: Osage County” at SAG. Today none of them made either of the two Globe Best Picture lists. Since all three were also absent from the AFI list, their kudos momentum is tripped up.
