    Hello,

    Does anybody know whether Life Is Beautiful was eligible for Globe consideration back in 1998? It must have been given its eligibility and success at the Oscars that year.

    I just watched a clip from the Globes that year. Benigni appears and receives a really passionate welcome, with many audience members on their feet, cheers, and enormous applause. Given how popular Miramax films were with the HFPA (even more than with the Academy), I wonder about Life Is Beautiful. Why didn’t it receive a single Golden Globe nomination?

    As far as I know it was snubbed. They went with Geoffrey Rush who was supporting with the Academy.
    Milos Forman wins Director. No Life is Beautiful.

    Snubbed across the board.
    Why? I can only lend my own interpretation, but I know of no technicalities which made the film ineligible.
    Others here may know.

    That was 1996. Jim Carrey and Steven Spielberg won top prizes at the Globes in ’98.
