    No chance of August: Osage County being placed in Musical/Comedy. Absolutely no chance. Not even Weinstein could pull that off.

    I doubt Gatsby will be in Musical/Comedy as well, considering that the story is a tragic love story that ends with multiple deaths and no character being truly happy at the end. The fact that it is a period piece that also incorporates the first World War does not help.

    It will be interesting to see which way Abscam goes. It doesn’t catch me as a Silver Linings Playbook kind of film, and Christian Bale never takes lighthearted/comedic roles, so right now I’m leaning towards drama, but at this point it is too early to tell.

    Monuments Men will make a splash here, even if it is critically panned and makes no money. There are simply too many HFPA darlings involved with the film for it to not get recognized here.

    Call me crazy but I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of the witches from Oz The Great and Powerful land in supporting actress, probably Weisz who gave the most/only acclaimed performance of the three. HFPA I think could eat that movie up.

    Same here about Gatsby, Beau. Musical/Comedy? Have you read the book? It is extremely dramatic and intense.

    The Great Gatsby
    I have indeed read the book, and it is very dramatic. But the film won’t be. Luhrman’s films are too light-hearted to be considered Drama, and if they want it to be recognized at the Globes, their best bet is to put it in Musical/Comedy. I actually do agree it seems odd, and it was a difficult decision to choose a category.

    August:Osage Country
    This feels too much like a comedy than a drama to me. In recent years, they have nominated films such as My Week with Marilyn, The Tourist, The Kids are All Right, Little Miss Sunshine, The Squid and the Whale, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation in this category, so for me it seems like this is the place for it (for now)

    I don’t care if Great Gatsby is being directed by Judd Apatow.  It’s not a comedy, and saying that it is is one of the most ridiculous things that I have ever heard.

    It’s to early for a thread like this. Most of these contenders may not happen down the road. And some of these predictions posted here are ridiculous. James Franco (predicted in comedy for a drama flop) and Channing Tatum (for anything)?? Are you friggan serious?

    While I agree that Spring Breakers is not a comedy by all indications, it isn’t a flop.  It’s doing very well in limited release.

    This “August: Osage County is a Musical/Comedy” mentality has to be dropped.

    I agree this is way too early. A year ago during this time many of us thought that Laura Linney could win for Hyde Park on Hudson, and many of us had Meryl Streep in our 3rd/4th spots for Hope Springs. We didn’t even notice Chastain or Riva until the summer was over.

    Um, there is not a snowballs chance in hell that “August Osage County” will go Musical/Comedy. Have those of you who are saying that read the play or seen the play performed? It’s NOT a comedy. There are some funny moments but it is a drama through and through… 
    Also, all of the male roles are supporting and there’s not really any way you can make them lead. Meryl and Julia are the leads and if they push Julia supporting it is certainly category fraud. With all of that said, I expect multiple nominations across the board at both the Oscars and the Globes with this film. It’s a brilliant work and I am very hopeful about the film version.

    In acting categories, Meryl Streep
    holds the record for the most competitive Golden Globe wins with eight.
    However, including honorary awards, such as the Henrietta Award, World
    Film Favorite Actor/Actress Award, or Cecil B. DeMille Award, Barbra Streisand leads with nine. Jack Nicholson, Angela Lansbury and Alan Alda have six awards each. Behind them are Rosalind Russell, Sophia Loren and Jessica Lange with five wins. Streep also holds the record for most nominations with twenty-seven (as of the 2012 nominations) and Jack Lemmon is second with twenty-two.

     

    With 5 wins and 13 nominations, expect Lange to be in the running for both:

    American Horror Story: Coven

    and

    Therese

    This is in the same vein as AMERICAN BEAUTY. Dramatic material with humorous elements.
