    I think it would be a deserving winner, but definitely not. Birdman is a huge Oscar player that is in the top three for Best Picture, and Keaton is going to win the Comedy/Musical Actor award. Also, Birdman has much too much support to end up losing the big prize. I think The Grand Budapest Hotel is an amazing movie and in any other year would win this, but this year, Birdman is too incredible and popular to actually lose.

    I think so, probably not likely but if there is to be an upset in that category it would come from there. I have GBH winning screenplay and the movie showed its strength with the director nomination so it’s possible.

    Yes O pleeeezz! Lol. I loved Birdman however.

    It’ll win the mandatory Screenplay everywhere and here but this? I’d LOVE for this to happen.

    I’m wondering if GBH might have had a better advantage if it were released at a much later date?

    And go, Ralph Fiennes. I cant think of too many others who so richly deserves more, “official” recognition as an actor.

    I highly doubt it. Screenplay isn’t out of the question though.

    I think they give Anderson his reward in Screenplay, just as all the major critics have so far.

    You can do it Golden Globes! You can go your own way! Stop living in the Oscar shadow, and prove yourself by not going with the obvious Oscar contender/frontrunner! Go with what is truly the best comedy of the year, and not the drama masquerading in the wrong category. Please oh please, just this one thing, and then I won’t ask for anything else! You can give another award to Jon Voight again, instead of someone who actually deserves it! Just do this one thing for me first! GBH for the win!

    Grand Budapest, not Boyhood, is the real cinematic achievement of the year. Very rare that a film gets every aspect of filmmaking perfectly right.

    Loved both GBH and Birdman, but nothing in 2014 touched the brilliance of GBH (have yet to see Selma and Sniper).

    I wish this movie had come out in October/November so it was fresher in the minds of voters. 
    Its nice to see Anderson finally getting the recognition he deserves. But, Birdman is to far ahead to loose.  
    I agree though, they won’t want him going away empty handed and he will win Screenplay.

    I doubt it, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility. It has a lot of widespread support it would seem, and I think Wes Anderson gets a DGA nom and his first Oscar nom in Best Director.

    I hope not. Birdman was actually funny.

     

    I just finished watching this via HBO onDemand and didn’t laugh once. Where were the laughs? Was I supposed to laugh when William Dafoe threw a cat out the window? Ugh. The great cast was wasted in such small and stupid roles, the movie was a chore to sit through, and the dialogue was obnoxious and over the top. I don’t think I’ve ever hated an acclaimed movie more. A truly disappointing experience. I’m pissed.

     

    I couldn’t stand Ralph Fiennes’ character. I even had him in my predictions for a ‘surprise’ nomination. I have to take him out now.

     

    I can’t believe this is winning screenplay awards left and right when there’s Birdman, Boyhood, Nightcrawler, and Whiplash out there this year.
