    So, the last best actress winner at the Oscars that didn’t win a Golden Globe was Halle Berry for “Monsters’ Ball” almost 20 years ago. However, every best actress winner at the Oscars received a SAG Award nomination (since the SAG Awards started, of course). The Best Actress race is pretty interesting this year.

    Rosamund Pike winning makes up for the disgusting Carey Mulligan snub.

    I honestly thought Carey was such a slam-dunk to win after the PYW over-performance at noms.

    It feels like everything in Drama apart from Nomadland flopped. <i>Chicago 7 </i>obviously won Screenplay but it still felt underwhelming for some reason.

    Happy for Boseman, Kaaluya, and Boyega.

     

     

    I felt like Regina King should have won Best Director but can’t get everything you want!

    The show itself was surprisingly good for a Zoom awards. Tina and Amy are probably the best awards show hosts out there. If they ever “upgrade” to the Oscars, I’d be elated. The only major glitch was with Daniel Kaluuya’s live feed speech in the beginning, I think. Some of those acceptance speeches were pre-recorded. I just didn’t like acceptance speeches being so rushed at the end, but there was time for unnecessary skits to hog time away. Just taking away whatever Maya Rudolph and Kenan Thompson were attempting could have given extra time to like four or so winners. I liked the one where the actors called the doctors though, and Kristen Wiig’s presenting with Annie Mumulo was at least amusing (haven’t seen their movie). Also curious was how the winners were presented where the other nominees were awkwardly still being seen through the winner’s speech. It worked with Jason Sudeikis’s rambling speech when Don Cheadle did the hand motion for him to hurry up already, but it was a mess other times, especially at the upsets. No In Memoriam? Yikes. Presenters were just okay to me. Jane Fonda’s DeMille speech was thrilling and the best of the night for me. As convenient as it was, I did like seeing the HFPA leadership take an accounting for itself with the shameful lack of black membership and trying to right that sinking ship. But I also know that they would have completely been all white business as usual if they hadn’t been caught and called out, so whatever. I’m still reeling from all of these surprise winners. Andra effin’ Day, bitches! Globes gonna Globe. Off to the television side.

    Mank: 0/6 PYW: 0/4 What a night.

     

    What a wonderful night! Thanks HFPA.

    ****

    As I commented in the Best Actress thread, PYW may get Gone Girl treatment come Oscar nominations or may get nothing at all. As for Mank, maybe Roma treatment and that’s okay.

    Mank is not getting the Roma treatment when Chloe Zhao is winning the Oscar for Directing over David Fincher and Promising Young Woman is not getting the Gone Girl treatment when it’s a lock for an Original Screenplay nomination.

    Gone Girl was also considered a lock for a Screenplay nomination.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I second this. Gone Girl was nominated in every screenplay awards until Oscar nominations came. I remember the outrage everywhere when it was snubbed. But we’ll see and good luck.

    I notice that this year HFPA play a very clever strategy to really influence the Oscar race. If they hadn’t given it to both Day and Foster, I would’ve believe that their position was so weak to be considered. Now they’re GG winners and put into the top of our list. This literally shows how they want to be the strongest influencer on the race and leave behind both quality and star factor. What a cunning way to succeed! I wonder how many money they’re going to receive if they can bring one underdog to the front.

    A few smiles and a few disappointments for the GG’s last night.

    My favorite win, of course, is Andra Day! I loved, loved her performance as Billie Holiday and I think her win will help with getting an Oscar nomination. I would have been fine with a McDormand or Davis win (I haven’t seen Mulligan’s performance yet).

    Initially, I was disappointed with John Boyega’s win, although he was really good. I wanted so much for Daniel Levy to win for “Schitt’s Creek”. Then, when I realized Levy gets a Globe for “Schitt’s Creek” Best Comedy win, I was no longer disappointed.

    After the shock of it, the best part of Jodie Foster’s win was seeing her kiss her partner. And their beautiful dog!

    Daniel Kaluuya’s win was a great start to the show and I can now see him taking his fantastic portrayal of Fred Hampton all the way across the Oscar finish line!

    And Ms. Rosamund Pike! Oh yeah!
    And Josh O’Connor! Groovy!
    And The Queen’s Gambit! Love the love!

    But, Sacha Baron Cohen! Whatever..

    I’m ready for more award shows and I had to google to see what’s next: The Critic’s Choice next Sunday. Dag – the SAGs aren’t until April.

    It was overall a great night, but so many surprises in film! I predicted Zhao for Directing, but what a bonus to win Best Picture! I loved Nomadland and this recognition certainly gives it a bump for Oscars. I really enjoyed I Care A Lot even though it was a little chaotic. I loved Pike’s performance and am thrilled she won! Also, Jodie Foster…did not predict that but happy regardless. I kind of thought Colman would win (bc HFPA has liked her performances in the past but wouldn’t award her for The Crown this year), but still happy for Foster.

    The only win that I was not super happy about was Andra Day. I thought she was great; she really inhabited Billie Holiday. But it just seemed like the movie itself was not as strong. I didn’t get to see Promising Young Woman or Pieces of a Woman, so you can take this opinion with a grain of salt, but I would’ve given the award to Frances McDormand. She was great in a great movie! I can’t speak to Carey Mulligan’s performance, but I personally would have picked McDormand.

    Overall, a great night with lots of surprises! (still wish Palm Springs and Andy Samberg would have won but I knew that wouldn’t happen)
