IT ‘AINT OVER YET – Golden Globes Highlight Oscar Snubs

ARGO

 

Few people are expecting ARGO and LES MISERABLES to sweep the Oscars, which makes their Golden Globe wins all the more intriguing. Because maybe they should.

No one is suggesting either film didn’t deserve their wins, though I’m sure there will be plenty of columnists saying that by morning. But the wins spotlight some very big Oscar snubs. ARGO won the award for Best Picture – Drama and Ben Affleck took home the Golden Globe for Best Director. Likewise, Tom Hooper’s LES MISERABLES won the Globe for Best Picture – Comedy or Musical. While both of these films are also nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, neither Affleck nor Hooper was nominated in the Best Director categories – two very big snubs.

As expected, Daniel Day-Lewis took home the award for Best Actor in a Drama while Hugh Jackman (LES MISERABLES) took the award home for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. Christoph Waltz took home the Best Supporting Actor award for DJANGO UNCHAINED.

Best Actress in a Drama went to Jessica Chastain for ZERO DARK THIRTY, an Oscar favorite but one who didn’t win many other awards this night. Best Actress ni a Comedy or Musical went to Jennifer Lawrence in the absolutely fantastic SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. Anne Hathaway took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her raw portrayal of Fantine in LES MISERABLES.

All in all, there were plenty of surprises at the Golden Globes this year. Many awards for television were also handed out, results of which you can read about here. There was also quite a lot of drama,  including Jodie Foster’s soon to be legendary speech, Bill Clinton’s surprise appearance and more. In the interest of keeping the message focused, we’re just focusing on the awards here.
