Ricky Gervais, Golden Globes

2016 Golden Globes Results and Analysis

Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

With the Oscar nominees due to be announced in just three days, if you were looking to The Golden Globes to help you get an idea of what to expect…..well, good luck.  First of all, Star Wars: The Force Awakened was ineligible for the Globes because Disney held it back from screeners to prevent leaks.  Secondly, the Globe nominees this year seemed extremely random even by Globe standards.  If you want to read anything into the results, it looks like Best Picture is The Revenant‘s to lose, Best Actor is Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Matt Damon, Best Actress is wide open but Brie Larson’s win gives her probably the lead and Inside Out is a lock for Animated Film.  On the TV side, Mr. Robot and Mad Men dominated things.  The most egregious win, in my book, was Sam Smith’s win for best song for his grating title song from Spectre when the only good song to come from a movie this year was Furious 7‘s “See You Again”.  Oh, and despite the fact that he does this every year and will continue to as long as they bring him back, Ricky Gervais offended everyone.  Full list of nominees and winners below!
The Martian, Matt Damon

One thought on “2016 Golden Globes Results and Analysis”

  1. Gervais needs to take a page from Seth Macfarline’s book. If you’re going to be insufferably mean-spirited, it helps to be charming. Also, extremely talented. Being able to sing like Frank Sinatra is a start.

    This was the best year of movies in recent memory, to the point where no awards presentation could possibly do it justice. And I still need to see a few films, like Ex Machina and Spotlight. My faith in cinema has actually been given a shot in the arm. Big changes are coming to the industry, but I’m pretty sure there will always be a place for quality.
