Golden Globe Awards 2015 Nominees and Winners (Update)

golden-globes-logo

It’s that time of year again. Award season. The one time of year we get to celebrate films by awarding them with self glorifying statues. To me this is my Super Bowl. I like to be able to predict the winner and see how many I can get right. Lately it has been easier than usual. The award shows stick with the safe bets instead of awarding what is truly great. For the most part they are all good movies but sometimes the less inspired choice wins.

I’m going to keep things short. I will list the nominees, who I think will win, and the eventual winners. Easier said then done. My predictions will be bolded BLACK while the winners will be bolded RED

Jon Stewart’s ‘Rosewater’ gets a November release date

bahari_thencameforme-final-cover_custom-3a23f041179c0eb18a00996398939c0574735f0c-s6-c30

Rosewater based on Maziar Bahari (Gael Garcia Bernal) imprisonment in Iran. Officially set to be released on November 6th, officially pitting it against Intersteller and Big Hero 6 at the box office. Set to premiere at Toronto International Film Festival in September. Jon Stewart and Open Road are hoping for an awards candidate this coming award season.

I’m not quite sure how I feel about this movie yet. I’m not entire confident in Jon Stewart’s directing ability but stranger things have happened. Who knows this may turn out to be an amazing movie but right now I’m not sure this movie will be the award candidate that they are hoping for.

Big Hero 6 Trailer

It appear Marvel Studios is now making it’s way into the animation department. It is apparently based on a comic series of the same name, one I’ve never heard of. Animation has been in something of a slump this year with How to Train Your Dragon 2 not meeting the lofty expectations. While I didn’t enjoy Wreck It Ralph, a movie that had a similar feeling to it, so I’m not going to be expecting much at the end of the day. Based on the trailer it at least looks like fun but it’ll probably follow the same template as Marvel’s other movies so I don’t think that it’ll break any new ground.

Set in a fictional metropolis called San Fransokyo (a portmanteau of San Francisco and Tokyo), a young robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his self-created robot Baymax uncover a criminal plot and pull together a team of inexperienced crime-fighters, including WasabiHoney LemonGoGo Tomago, and Fred to solve the mystery surrounding the crime.

Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams. Starring Ryan Potter as  Hiro HamadaScott Adsit as BaymaxT. J. Miller as  FredJamie Chung as GoGo TomagoDamon Wayans, Jr. as Wasabi,  and Génesis Rodríguez as  Honey Lemon. Produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
