    Chloe Zhao’s direction was great but not undeniable as you all want and make it to be.

    Fincher could have won.

    No idea why The Life Ahead song was just #4 in the prediction center. I predicted it to win. Not because of Diane Warren, but because of Laura Pausini who is a massive star in some european countries.

    Kind of a mess of winners here, and it’s not like I can really say the Golden Globes are going to determine the course of this year’s race and we should take everything they say as gospel, but there’s also no denying that there are some interesting observations here. “Nomadland” taking Picture – Drama and Director (more so Picture, I guess) puts a lid on the talk that it would be the critics pick that would lose momentum during the televised awards, but it’s wins are more of a ding toward “Chicago 7”/Sorkin and “Mank”/Fincher than a boost for “Nomadland”/Zhao, which already had a lot going in its favor but is cementing itself as a strong frontrunner that can always cause a little bit of trouble. Not being able to take SAG Ensemble next month should lighten that load a little, but that is now more a test for “Chicago 7,” which needs to win that award to stay in the race. The acting winners were messy but it at least keeps things interesting as Day and Pike cannot repeat at SAG or BAFTA. If SAG and BAFTA split on Actress, we will finally have an exciting race heading into the Oscars…can you imagine?! Boseman seemed to solidify his sweep, which I expected and welcome, but I was surprised to see Kaluuya take the Globe. I know you can argue that SBC won two awards so they spread the wealth, but “Judas” wasn’t a top contender here and honestly they could’ve easily given SBC a third. Maybe he was a much more obvious pick for Actor – Comedy. But here’s the thing. It is obvious that SBC is beloved, so his ability to win other awards without going against Kaluuya has me nervous for when they start to go head-to-head and there are no other categories to reward the runner-up. While Kaluuya winning the Globe seemed to make others think he’s sweeping, I’m still weary of SAG going to SBC and keeping this race competitive. They are both widely loved and respected, and British so BAFTA will be a heated race too, so this battle goes on. Foster’s supporting win certainly aided her campaign for an Oscar nomination, but also highlighted that no one has any clue what to do with this category. If anything, this kind of reinforces my theory of there being a split decision at the major precursors just for Close to win the Oscar since the other groups got her last time for “The Wife” and might not want to get burned again. This is the end of the road for a Seyfried surprise win, though I think she can still get a nomination. Bakalova lost a “gimme,” and I don’t think we can say that doesn’t hurt her chances because it reinforces the fear that’s been there the whole time about her comedic performance not being taken seriously. SAG will be telling. Overall, although the Globes are definitely not the bellwether we’re led to believe it is, last night’s results seem to indicate it’ll be a messy season and since I don’t really love many (any?) of the films in contention this year, and I’m still stuck in my house, the least I can ask for is an interesting and messy awards season.

    See and here’s me thinking Fincher directed a bloated, excessively long, go-nowhere stinker, so…

    I want to know the ratings, how hard did last night flop? The zoom/google meet ceremony just doesn’t work.

    This link will have Globes numbers. Initial numbers are terrible but doesnt include west coast so could rise a lot. Then again, even with the 25% increase they are expecting, it wouldnt be anywhere close to the 18M it got last year.

    This ceremony was horrible, they didn’t give the trophies to the winners, if felt so wrong, this pandemic really ruined awards season.

    Terrible ratings. From HR:

    Ratings for the Golden Globes crashed hard Sunday, with early numbers for the ceremony coming in far below last year’s telecast.

    Fast national ratings — which aren’t fully time zone-adjusted and not entirely accurate — show NBC’s broadcast averaging just 5.42 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the key ad demographic of adults 18-49. Both are down more than 60 percent from the preliminary figures from last year (14.76 million and 3.8).

    Not really surprising, given what the year has been like for film and the lack of an in-person ceremony.
