The Golden Globe Nominations Are Here! The Golden Globe Nominations Are Here!

Golden-Globe-Trophy You’ve probably noticed that we’re pretty pumped up for awards season here at Happy. Although there are tons of lesser award nominations that come prior to the Golden Globes, the Globes are the real deal in terms of when everyone starts watching the tea leaves and trying to predict who will get Oscar nods and Oscar wins, and those nominations are out today.

Do you live in Los Angeles or New York? Are you also a renowned film critic? Haha you are probably not, which means that many of these films have not played in your little hamlet and will not until the new year, but have been jammed into a theater or two on the coast so that they’re eligible for 2013’s nominations.

Quick and arbitrary predictions:

  • “12 Years a Slave” will run away with a ton of things if for no other reason than the sheer number of nominations it got.
  • Without a Special Effects category, “Gravity” will largely walk away empty-handed EVEN THOUGH IT SHOULD NOT.
  • The Mandela biopic will likely see a lot more wins than it might have last year, and that will only be undeserved in the case of U2’s boring song, “Ordinary Love,” from the film.
  • Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be mad funny, both because they are mad funny and because having two hosts is always a good idea as it allows them to riff off one another. Exception, horrible horrible exception, to this rule: Anne Hathaway and James Franco for the 2011 Oscars. Let’s never speak of that again.
