Golden Globes : the biopic satire of Vice is taking the head in front of A Star is Born and The Favorite, Black Panther as an outsider






The season of ceremonies of awards fall into the heart of the matter. Has a month of the ceremony, the Golden Globes have announced the named in the categories of film (and the series it is right here).

In the category of drama, is found in the first outsider with five nominations : the Green Book : On the roads of the south and A Star is Born. The road movie by Peter Farrelly had received the Audience Award at the last Toronto Festival, and takes its rank with nominations in the major categories : director, actor for Viggo Mortensen, actor in a supporting role for Mahershala Ali and scenario.


A duo that takes the lead in nominations drama


The musical drama Bradley Cooper also confirms its place as the favorite after its success in Venice and the praises received by the press for several months. Lady Gaga best actress is very well placed for the win, while the category of best original song seems to be already accumulated with the title Shallow.

Among drama actors, Bradley Cooper for A Star is Born holds the bar, but must be wary of Willem Dafoe and his role of Vincent Van Gogh in At Eternity”s Gate. The confrontation among actresses does not seem to open with Lady Gaga in the lead and Glenn Close for The Wife in great favorite. Unless Nicole Kidman in Destroyer or Melissa McCarthy in the expected Can You Ever Forgive Me ? do not create the surprise.


Richard E. Grant and Melissa McCarthy are both named


On the side of comedy or musical, Vice Adam McKay dominates the game with six appointments, in particular thanks to its audience of stars : Christian Bale for best actor, Amy Adams best actress in a supporting role, and Sam Rockwell as best actor in a supporting role (like last year for 3 Billboards – The billboards of vengeance).

It is closely followed by The Favorite of Yorgos Lanthimos with five nominations including best actress for the superb Olivia Colman and the quotes from Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as an actress in a supporting role. The Return of Mary Poppins gets him four nominations including for his actress Emily Blunt and his original music.


Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, unrecognizable


Among the other ads. First of all, the presence on three occasions of Black Panther including best dramatic film. And if the film is a Marvel superhero created the surprise ? And then also the four citations of BlacKkKlansman including best director for Spike Lee, seven months after having received the Grand Prix at Cannes.

Finally, for the Golden Globes best foreign language film, the pretty Girl of Lukas Dhont Belgium will be present even if Roma seems to take the advantage. The mexican film, the last Golden Lion, is also named in the best-case scenario, and of course best director for Alfonso Cuarón. He is not named in the best dramatic film, because it is not in English. It may, however, claim the Oscar the most prestigious award next February, the Academy, mocking the language used for the major category. Case to follow…
