Golden Globe Noms and Vegas Crix


The last BIG pre-Oscar awards announcement came this morning from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globe Awards. Lincoln got the most nominations with seven. Daniel Day-Lewis is now the most popular candidate with five wins from critics' groups and three nominations. Django Unchained and Argo received five GG noms each. I discovered on FB that Django did not send out its screeners until the first week of December which may explain why it didn't do so well with the SAG noms yesterday. 

Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith continue to rake in the noms with Dame Judi garnering a Best Actress in a Comedy nom for Marigold Hotel and her co-star Dame Maggie gaining recognition for both Downton Abbey and Quartet.

I also added the Las Vegas Film Critics Society which bucked the trend of its fellow critics' group and award Best Picture to Life of Pi rather than Zero Dark Thirty. How many film critics are there in Las Vegas anyway? I also just realized that I completely missed the Independent Spirit Awards noms. I went looking for them on line and saw they were announced back on Nov. 28. They didn't get much press. I will add those later, right now I have two articles due today.
