“To go or not to go?” might have been a better lead, but there’s no question or controversy there. Every TV fan or movie lover would sign a death pledge for a chance to buy Golden Globe® tickets. What’s more interesting, however, is the machinations behind the Golden Globes®. Like what divine body decides who gets nominated or who wins? These questions captivate fans and insiders year after year, and now we’ll explore what’s happening at the 2015 Golden Globes®. Exciting!
Let’s start with “The Judge.” If you haven’t seen this movie, don’t. Robert Downey Jr. is a lawyer who returns home to clear his father’s name. The critics didn’t love it, yet Robert Duvall managed to snag a best supporting actor nod. What’s up with that? Jake Gyllenhaal wrangled a best actor nod for “Nightcrawler,” but the film didn’t venture far in other categories. Sadly, “Gone Girl” is not gone. As if the Hollywood Foreign Press didn’t have any other choice, they gave “Gone Girl” four nominations, including best screenplay, best score, best director and best actress, although Ben Affleck’s character Nick takes over the film adaption.
