    Re: 2018 Award Season

    The above is for the Golden Globes

    I didin't realize 3 Billboards was directed by Martin McDonagh. Definitely on my must-see list now.


    I saw The Greatest Showman yesterday at a closed screening. Hugh Jackman was.. fine. I don't know if he was award-worthy good in it. I was more impressed by Rebecca Ferguson in a supporting part. The music is great!

    How is 'Baby Driver' a comedy?

    I know some of Kevin Spacey's lines now seem very inappropriately funny, but that I don't think that was intentional when the movie was made.

    I'm ok with that. I very much enjoyed the movie, but I don't think of it as award-winning caliber, with the exception of Holly Hunter's performance.

    I can't comment. The only films on this list I have seen are Get Out and Lady Bird.

    Seems more comedy than drama. But it's true they really hem themselves in with the absurdly rigid categories. Get Out is another one that goes both ways/neither way. But it seems like it would be less controversial to submit as a drama.

    Timothée Chalamet must be pretty stoked to have landed in a category where his 4 competitors would be considered by many to be the 4 greatest working male actors in the English language.

    Having seen a bunch of these movies (see my comments in the 2018 Oscars thread), my strongest reaction to this list is echoing what some of you have already alluded to: How do they decide what constitutes a "comedy"????? There are many that are nominated as "comedies" (since it is obvious they aren't "musicals") for which the word "comedy" would never have come to my mind.

    Did Sony dump Hammer into support category to up the odds of winning on or the other?

    and why oh why is Kyle MacLachlan the only nomination for Twin Peaks?? For shame...

    the Moz, I have no inside information with which to answer your question, but without inside info, I would strongly suspect the answer to your question about Hammer is YES.

    There are probably a few people around with more industry insight, but my understanding is that studios have a fair bit of freedom about which category they submit their film/show to compete for Golden Globes under. Dramedies and dark comedies seem to have a bit of an advantage, since they can ostensibly make a case for either category and therefore the studios/producers can survey the field to see which one is "weaker," though it seems to usually be comedy/musical (like two years ago when The Martian and The Big Short went that way, essentially freezing out all the other nominees, which were more clearly comedies).

    I haven't seen The Post, so I'm sure the nomination is well deserved, but I wonder how bad the movie or the acting would have to be before Meryl Streep wasn't nominated for awards.

    I'd love to see them put a fake movie on the ballot to see how many votes she gets. They could go a step further and make a documentary about the process. Dummy up a script that seems to satisfy all the typical awards bingo, then create some buzz about it. "It's called Mrs. Witherbottom Goes To Market, and Meryl Streep is attached! She's going to be a no nonsense matriarch... in a period piece... with an accent!" When she shows up on the ballot, the voters will think it came out at the last minute, and they just missed it. They'll be too offended about not getting a free screener copy to sniff out the lie.
