    What would have happened, who would’ve been nominated and who would’ve won if American Hustle stayed in the Drama categories at the Golden Globes?

    They actually submitted as a drama, but the Globes rejected that categorization.

    I think it might have won Best Drama at GG if it were placed there.  AH’s fever was at its peak around that time.

    It’s cooling off though.
