Michael Keaton vs. Eddie Redmayne: Who got bigger Oscars boost from Globes speech? (Poll)

Sunday’s Golden Globes confirmed what we already suspected, that top Oscar winners will be Julianne Moore (“Still Alice“) for Best Actress, J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash“) for Best Supporting Actor and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood“) for Best Supporting Actress.

However, thanks to their duelling wins, the race for Best Actor is still a crapshoot between Gold Derby frontrunners Michael Keaton (“Birdman“) and Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything“). Who between them will prevail at the Oscars? We still have no idea.

To determine which leading fellow has a leg up at the Oscars, let’s backtrack to see who had the best speech at the Golden Globes. Because, after all, aren’t the Globes really just a stepping stool en route to winning the Oscar? After watching the videos, vote in our poll below.

First up, watch Keaton’s Globes speech followed by his interview backstage in the press room.

  1. Except for the Bafta and the other british film awards,this Michael Keaton’s year to finally be reconized(wrong spelling) for his performance in Birdman.

  2. I hate the fact that a speech has an effect on who wins. I’m sure it’s true, but it’s so irrelevant to the performance in the film. I’m pulling for Michael Keaton to win. Eddie Redmayne was great, but “The Theory of Everything” was so subpar and meandering in my opinion, and “Birdman” was brilliant.

  3. Jonathan, you’re contradicting yourself. You say they should win due to their *performance*, and the next sentence you’re endorsing an actor because he’s in the better movie, and not necessarily because he gives the better performance?

  4. So disappointed Redmayne won, cumberbatch got robbed bc they always go for actors portrayng physical deseases (more moving). At this point, i hope Keaton wins at least birdman is not a sugar coated romance
