    I was rather dumbfounded at American Hustle and how it won 3 golden globes two years ago when I thought the HFPA like to “spread the wealth around” it won best actress best supporting and best comedy picture. I don’t get why Wolf of Wall Street didn’t win best picture it was actually funny and was the only 100% comedy in the category. AH was somewhat funny but was more confusing than funny. Can someone give me an explanation for this win when the movie had two other wins?

    The hype machine was strong with AH. I personally thought the most deserving nominee was Her. But WoWS was not too far behind.

    It was a possible Best Picture winner at the time and it had the critics behind it for some reason.

    Because of poor taste.

    The Wolf of Wall street wasn’t as well recieved as AH. And wasn’t really in the discussion for any major awards love except for a possible nom for DiCaprio

    Wolf of Wall Street was released really late to voters and critics and got behind in the buzz factor. 

    The Goldderby experts used to talk about how had it been finished earlier it might have done better and Leo may have even beat McConaughey. (don’t argue with me!!! that is what they used to say on the podcasts at the time!!!)
