    In the last 30 years in 9 times the Best Picture Winners at the Oscars
    didn’t win the Golden Globes for Best Picture (Musical/Comedy or Drama). In
    these years the Oscars and Golden Globes Best Picture Winners didn’t match, but who
    do you think made the best choice?

     

    1991:

    Oscars’ choice: The Silence of the Lambs

    Golden Globes’ choice: Bugsy

     

    1992:

    Oscars’ choice: Unforgiven

    Golden Globes’ choice: Scent of a Woman

     

    1995:

    Oscars’ choice: Braveheart

    Golden Globes’ choice: Sense and Sensibility

     

    2004:

    Oscars’ choice: Million Dollar Baby

    Golden Globes’ choice: The Aviator

     

    2005:

    Oscars’ choice: Crash

    Golden Globes’ choice: Brokeback Mountain

     

    2006:

    Oscars’ choice: The Departed

    Golden Globes’ choice: Babel

     

    2007:

    Oscars’ choice: No Country for Old Men

    Golden Globes’ choice: Atonement

     

    2009:

    Oscars’ choice: The Hurt Locker

    Thanks Joe. Interesting thread!

    1991:

    Oscars’ choice: The Silence of the Lambs

    Golden Globes’ choice: Bugsy

    Two terrific films and good in different ways. Hard choice; equal imo

     

    1992:

    Oscars’ choice: Unforgiven

    Golden Globes’ choice: Scent of a Woman

    Er, pardon? No contest

    1995:

    Oscars’ choice: Braveheart

    Golden Globes’ choice: Sense and Sensibility

     Well again, good in very different ways. Gotta hand it to handsome psycho Mel for his choreography of those batte scenes. Historical accuracy didnt get in his way of constructing a winning film

    Preferred Sense and Sensibility and can watch this repeatedly

    2004:

    Oscars’ choice: Million Dollar Baby

    Golden Globes’ choice: The Aviator

    M$B baby. Terrific perfs in both

    2005:

    Oscars’ choice: Crash

    Golden Globes’ choice: Brokeback Mountain

    Lol! No (further) comments

    2006:

    Oscars’ choice: The Departed

    Golden Globes’ choice: Babel

    Surprisingly, I find both films admirable, and again in differing ways. Pick one? Ummm…no

    2007:

    Oscars’ choice: No Country for Old Men

    Golden Globes’ choice: Atonement

    O please. One is a near masterpiece. The other, I graded a C+. Those moles for starters….just cant get over those moles…

    2009:

    Oscars’ choice: The Hurt Locker

    Golden Globes’ choice: Avatar

     Lol! One, I can rewatch any time. The other, I graded an A or A+ when I saw it on opening day…to an empty theatre…loved it until TITS and haters jumped up and down

    2010:

    Oscars’ choice: The King’s Speech

    Golden Globes’ choice: The Social Network

    Another HAHAHAHA moment. ‘nough said for now.

    Haven’t seen Bugsy, Unforgiven, or Braveheart, or Scent Of A Woman. 

    To my mind, Oscar made the right choice in 2005.

    Babel was better in 2006, but three great films weren’t nominated: Little Children, Notes On A Scandal, and Pans Labyrinth.

    In 2007, Oscar made the better choice, but No Country did  not  amaze  me. Michael Clayton and There Will Be Blood stood out from those nominees, but I don’t love either films .  

    Haven’t seen Hurt Locker or Avatar 

    Oscar Made the right choice in 2010.

    I’ll give my opinion as if I’m forgetting everything I know and think about the Globes and why they choose certain films…

    2010. Of course the Globes win.
    2009. I don’t know, I think they both got it right and I think in this case the Oscars thought more with an agenda than the Globes did.
    2007. Nope. Oscars got it right
    2006. I saw Babel twice back then and loved it, haven’t seen it since. The Departed is one of my favorite films, so points to the Academy.
    2005. Obviously the Globes win. Crash was my favorite film of the year before the bulk of “oscar movies” came around, but common.
    2004. Tough call.
    1995. Globes win. Haven’t seen Braveheart in forever but Sense is pretty good.
    1992. The HFPA came out looking like idiots with this one. Unforgiven is amazing. And then there’s The Crying Game.
    1991. Silence of the Lambs is incredible, but I can understand that it’s a difficult movie and one that doesn’t look like BP material at all.

    I’ll go with the Oscars everytime, except 3: 2004, 2005. and 2010
    2004-I think Aviator is one of Scorsese’s best films
    2005-Crash is one of the worst Best Picture winners.
    2010-King’s Speech is a really good film, but Social Network is a great one.

    1995:

    Oscars’ choice: Braveheart

    Golden Globes’ choice: Sense and Sensibility

    Not a fan of either of these, but I’d have to give the edge to Braveheart, because I LOATHE Sense and Sensibility. 

     

    2004:

    Oscars’ choice: Million Dollar Baby

    Golden Globes’ choice: The Aviator

    I didn’t really like The Aviator, so Oscar 2-0. 
     

    2005:

    Oscars’ choice: Crash

    Golden Globes’ choice: Brokeback Mountain

    The easiest pick. A near masterpiece vs. an average film propelled by white guilt? 2-1. 
     

    2006:

    Oscars’ choice: The Departed

    Golden Globes’ choice: Babel

     I can’t even begin to choose because I love them both. 2.5 – 1.5
     

    2007:

    Oscars’ choice: No Country for Old Men

    Golden Globes’ choice: Atonement

    Easily the Coens. 3.5 – 1.5

    2009:

    Oscars’ choice: The Hurt Locker

    Golden Globes’ choice: Avatar

    I am no fan of Bigelow. 3.5-2.5 
     

    2010:

    Oscars’ choice: The King’s Speech

    Golden Globes’ choice: The Social Network

    I liked both of them, but The Social Network is one of my favorite movies of the decade. 3.5-3.5

    So, a TIE.

    I was pretty indifferent to Kathryn Bigelow winning Best Director back in 2009-10 as it happened.  I didn’t appreciate what she was doing then, and most of my friends were rooting for Tarantino (and against James Cameron).  But when I saw Zero Dark Thirty, I saw that film as a directing masterwork, which really resonated with Bigelow’s personal journey as a filmmaker.  I became a fan and really was won over more convincingly by The Hurt Locker, a win for which I wholly support and think the Oscars got right and the Globes wrong.  This woman is highly intelligent, and unlike many top American directors out there comes from a very academic background.  She’s studied film, painted (like one of her influences, Kurosawa), thought about directors, and has actively sought to push the medium, finally reaching this place in her 60s.  Tarantino can go on and on about all the films he knows and be pretty obnoxious in a talk (you can see it in the reactions of the other directors); but if you look at the DGA/directors’ panel interviews from 2009-10, there is respectful silence when Bigelow speaks and she commands the respect of the others.  Frankly, she’s a much more interesting and singular director than Cameron, who had an influence on her early career.  I love her taste in films too…she’s named Wild Bunch (an extraordinary film) as having a profound impact on her and I can see her own connection to that cinematic tradition.
